Brides and Grooms who are ardent fans of Bollywood can now live their Bollywood dream on their wedding day. Indian Hippy specialises in hand painted Bollywood-style posters that can be reproduced on a host of formats for weddings—invitations, backdrops, posters. Says Hinesh Jethwani, Founder, Indian Hippy, “It’s everyone’s fantasy to be immortalized into a poster of their favorite film. Our customized hand painted Bollywood film posters are a big hit at weddings, both as displays as well as gifts.”
So how does this work?
“Superimposing everyday faces into film posters is a very tedious job that only highly experienced film poster artists can accomplish since it involves the painstaking task of hand painting posters of popular Indian movies with the faces of the actors replaced with the customer’s. It’s almost like a mash up of portraits and film poster art,” explains Hinesh. All the customer needs to do is simply send Indian Hippy their photos via email. Indian Hippy’s expert team of acclaimed Bollywood film poster artists then study the photographs to understand facial characteristics, features and expressions, and proceed to paint as required.
Indian Hippy is the only company that offers exclusive stage backdrops for weddings that are hand painted in Bollywood film poster style. Painstakingly hand painted to perfection, the backdrops are created using photographs supplied by the couple of some of their most treasured/sentimental moments. The overall feel of the backdrop is like a Bollywood film poster – it tells a love story through beautifully interconnected portraits of the couple, all in film poster style. Explains Hinesh: “Later, after the wedding the poster can be framed and preserved for a lifetime.”
