Printed and circulated during the first release of the film, this classic movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed by cutting out images of actors from separate still photographs (shot on set location) and pasting them on a board. The background and typography are hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
In the poster, superstar Shahrukh Khan is seen in a large cut out still photo, while actress Deepa Sahi appears lying on a bed covered with rose petals on his side. A snippet from a passionate scene involving Shahrukh Khan and Deepa Sahi is seen pasted at the bottom. Raj Babbar and Deepa Sahi are seen on the right hand side of the poster in another still photograph from the film. The typography used in this poster is entirely in English.
