Pankaj Mullick Memorabilia :
The title page of the press book is perhaps the only image pertaining to 'Aandhi' which is available in the public domain. Major fire accidents at New Theatres' studios have ensured that the reels of the film which created waves, if not a 'tempest', during 1940, are no longer available.
A large number of advertisements, news, views, still photos etc., have now become available as a result of the painstaking search carried out in the archives of Indian Express, Madras Edition (1933 to 1947).
Rare Pankaj Mullick-related memorabilia from Indian Express are presented in the current web post.
WATCH OUT for more such rare uploads of Pankaj Mullick-related digital images from the past on this website.
