    GHP Full was used in the poster for Manje Bistre – one of the top ten highest-grossing Punjabi films. [More info on IMDb]

    Many Punjabi films have the title and other text written in English with the Gurmukhi version written smaller. Some, however, have the Gurmukhi text as the main text as is written here. The title ਮੰਜੇ ਬਿਸਤਰੇ has been given a dimensional effect. The letterforms were additionally embellished with a colorful decorative fill, with seams and threads that refer to the textile theme.

    GHP Full has been used in over 50 Punjabi films and continues to be the font of choice for a large proportion of the Punjabi film industry.

    Secondary typefaces used for the Latin text include MN Latin for the title, Superclarendon for the date, and DIN Condensed for the credits.
