Mumbai: After hand-painting the poster of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Rowdy Rathore, the street painters lent by the filmmakers have now formed a portrait of the film’s lead cast Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha.
According to the sources, the actors had to spend about four hours standing still in the same position, thus the artists could make the piece perfectly.
“Four painters were hired for the job, and they all worked simultaneously and presented four versions, all of which will be unveiled in due course of time,” the sources said.
It was reported that the assessment to lead in the street painters for the posters of the film, as well as another artwork, was co-producer Bhansali. The filmmaker intends on reviving the art form that was extensive in the ’80s, but was phased out with the arrival of the digital age.
The first poster of the film, which was also hand-painted, was released around Diwali. The newest one marks the onset of the New Year.
