The management of Mumbai's iconic cinema hall Maratha Mandir, in accordance with Yashraj Films, has decided to continue the 11:30am show of director Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge even after 19 years of its release. The film was released on October 19, 1995.
In a statement, Yashraj Films said, "The sudden announcement of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge being pulled out from Maratha Mandir at the end of 1009 unprecedented weeks resulted in a spontaneous and an overwhelming outcry from the cinema going audience, as well as dedicated fans of the movie, expressing their shock and disappointment."
It further said, "Ever since this news went out, the Maratha Mandir management was flooded with requests to reinstate the movie based on which they decided to immediately reconsider their decision. Given this, it has been mutually decided to continue the screening in the same 11:30am morning show - without breaking the uninterrupted run of the movie!"
It was earlier reported that the SRK-Kajol starrer will stop screening on Thursday but due to public demand, the screening has been continued.
