    Bulara is used on the poster for Rohi Biyabaan – Tale of a Barren Land, an Indian Punjabi-language film by Amardeep Singh Gill, starring Yaad Grewal and Kul Sidhu.

    Designed in 2009, Bulara – which is Punjabi for the verb “to announce” – is a clean Gurmukhi style, designed to work as a highly legible display font. The ascenders – sihari, bihari, laanv, dullaanv, horda, kanaurda, tippee and adhak – all fit into a smaller height thus giving the rest of the letters more space thus increasing legibility.

    It comes in various bold styles as well as true, hollow styles which, unlike many other hollow or outline fonts, has endcaps – something that is peculiar to a lot of Indic fonts where the characters hang down from a line that joins them all together, meaning that the endcaps cannot be included in the individual letters.
