Bollywood star Aamir Khan can now take pride in owning legendary actor Shammi Kapoor's jacket, one among the six film memorabilia items he bid for, at the Osian's Cinefan auction here. Aamir spent a total of Rs.238,000 at the event.
The auction, held here Tuesday, was held as part of the ongoing 12th Osian's-Cinefan Film Festival. It turned out to be a success with sales of Rs.69.55 lakh and 86 percent lots sold.
Gurgaon-based entertainment hub Kingdom of Dreams successfully bid for the full rights to the last recorded song of legendary Kishore Kumar who recorded it three days before his death in 1987. Kingdom of Dreams will use it for its new musical show "Jhumroo", which celebrates the spirit of the singer. They got it for Rs.15.6 lakh.
The auction offered vintage and rare posters, show-cards, stills, song-synopsis booklets among other artefacts.
The highlights were 45 signed black and white photographic stills by the evergreen Dev Anand; rare Satyajit Ray designed film posters of the 1960s; the turquoise ring set in silver worn by Farooque Sheikh in Muzaffar Ali's famous "Umrao Jaan"; a cricket bat signed by Aamir Khan and the team from "Lagaan" (INR 156,000).
According to Neville Tuli, founder chairman, Osian's: "The auction emphatically indicated that an enormous potential exists for developing the market for Indian cinema memorabilia, and that the film fraternity now feels a sense of respect for its cinematic heritage."
"Hereafter no one will dismiss these items as raddi (junk). They are collectibles and they have significant financial value," Tuli said in a statement.
