Recently, two posters from Raj Kapoor‘s popular movies, Bawara (1951) and Mera Naam Joker (1970) sold at record prices in an online auction called Raj Kapoor @100.
This auction celebrated the 100th birthday of the famous actor and filmmaker.
A rare Ukrainian poster of Bawara, considered worth Rs. 40,000-60,000, sold for an impressive Rs. 5.8 lakhs!
This price is reportedly even higher than past sales of Amitabh Bachchan’s movie posters.
The poster received 48 bids, showing the continued popularity of the movie and Raj Kapoor.
The high sales show how much people still love Raj Kapoor’s work and the increasing interest in old movie memorabilia in India.
As more people collect movie posters and similar items, we’ll likely see more high sales in the future.
Amidst the glitz and glamour of Bollywood lies a darker side – one that contains manipulation, misinformation, and exploitation. That’s when the idea struck me – why not write on Movie Officials where passionate fans like myself could access exclusive Bollywood news, Hollywood updates, and juicy celebrity gossip all in one place?
