    Dukander was used for the poster of Bambukat (ਬੰਬੂਕਾਟ), a 2016 Indian Punjabi-language period drama film written by Jass Grewal and directed by Pankaj Batra. The Latin title uses Old Press, while all secondary information is shown in Futura Condensed.

    Produced in 2008, Dukander is a handwritten Gurmukhi font based upon the form of writing that real people who write Gurmukhi all of the time use for their personal notes to their shopping lists.

    The font’s fluidity and familiarity means that Dukandar has been used on the covers of dozens of book and dozens of films including three of the twenty highest grossing Punjabi films – in addition to Bambukat, that’s Ambarsariya (2016) and Punjab 1984 (2014) – as well as cards, T-shirts and curiously, tattoos.
