Aamir Khan bids for Shammi Kapoor's jacket at Osians auction

The auction, held in the Capital yesterday as a part of the ongoing Osian's film festival, turned out to be a grand success with sales of Rs 69.55 lakh and 86 per cent lots sold.

Gurgaon-based Kingdom of Dreams successfully bid Rs 15.6 lakh for the full rights to the last recorded song of Kishore Kumar for its new musical show "Jhumroo" that celebrates the spirit of the legendary singer.

Auction lots on offer consisted of vintage and rare posters, show-cards, stills, song-synopsis booklets among other artifacts.

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 "Umrao Jaan" and a cricket bat signed by Aamir and the team from "Lagaan".

Rare photographic stills mounted on lobby cards and show-cards from "Aan", "Mother India", "Dil Diya Dard Liya", "Leader", "Humraaz", "Zanjeer", "Aan Milo Sajna" and Shammi Kapoor's scarf from "Junglee" too went under the hammer.

Many posters from Rajesh Khanna's films such as "Aradhana", "Amar Prem" and "Andaz" fared exceedingly well.

"After eleven years of hard work by Osian's, India can proudly say it has the basis of an international standard market for its cinematic heritage; hereafter no one will dismiss these items as raddi (garbage).

"They are collectibles and they have significant financial value. Though there is still a significant distance to cover for an in-depth market to emerge and hundreds of galleries and dealers to surface in a legitimate manner," Neville Tuli, Founder Chairman
