As described in my filmi fotos of India part I and part II, I found bits of Bollywood all around, and unfortunately I most often saw them from a moving vehicle and my camera was turned on too late for a good picture. This photo taken near Agra is distorted by the car window, but I like the color and the fact that two of my favorites, Amrish Puri and Ajay Devgan are in the movie poster. I don’t know what film this poster is from since I can’t read Devanagari script. If you zoom into the photo you can make out more stars.

The most popular films during my visit to India were Aamir Khan’s Ghajini and Shahrukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi as these theaters all show.

In addition to the Ghajini film posters, there were also these other Ghajini ads all over. At first I didn’t understand this Ghajini cartoon, but then realized it was a cute advertisement for Amul butter. If you look closely you can see the Ghajini cartoon arms read I slice bread and I make sandwich. Read about the advertisement and see a much better picture of it HERE.

I liked the cute ad, but I also like butter and Aamir Khan. Here’s another picture from the train where you can see some Amul butter:

I can’t talk about Aamir Khan without giving equal time to Shahrukh Khan. This photo of SRK was taken in Ludhiana. The car broke down across from the sign. No problem though, since it left me some time to worship the sign of SRK. Enjoy!

Update: Thanks to theBollywoodFan for identifying the movie poster from the first image as Sangram (1993).  He also let me know that Amul did a similar ad campaign when Rang De Basanti was released in 2006.  Here’s their cute Young De Basanti image.

Now for part II of my series of filmi related pictures from my trip to India.  I mostly took pictures from some type of moving vehicle, so I didn’t always get the best shots, and often didn’t realize until reviewng the photos just what I had captured.   Sometimes I found traces of Bollywood where I least expected.  Raj Babbar (lower left) popped up on this political billboard in Agra.  Would you vote for Raj?

I wasn’t expecting to see Halle Berry in Ludhiana, but I did.

Yesterday I posted about Abhishek  selling cell phones all over India. Now  look closely at this photo from Amritsar and see if you can tell who else is selling cell phones.

I was only snapping away at the lovely chaos of India and didn’t even realize I’d captured Shreyas Talpade here until I zoomed in.  What a nice surprise.   While riding the Shatabdi Express from Ludhiana to New Delhi, I snapped another picture, not knowing if was filmi until I took a closer look …
