DDLJ 900 Weeks: SRK-Kajol magic continues at Maratha Mandir

Aditya Chopra’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge continues it’s record breaking run at Maratha Mandir in Mumbai. This week, the Shahrukh Khan – Kajol classic entered it’s 900th week of uninterrupted run.

A source from the theatre informs “The magic of DDLJ’s evergreen romance continues to bring audiences to the theatre. The matinee show (11:30 am) sometimes runs to packed houses, with young lovers, students and even married couples queuing up to buy tickets. The older generation gets nostalgic, they have so many memories attached to the film”

When asked if the film will complete a record 1000 weeks in 2 years, he says “we have no plans of discontinuing the screening of DDLJ. It will run for 1000 weeks and more”

DDLJ 900 Weeks

DDLJ 900 Weeks

DDLJ was a break-through film in Shahrukh Khan’s career, as the superstar made the switch from anti-hero negative characters to boy-next-door romantic roles. The film remains one of the biggest hits in the history of Indian cinema and also made SRK a huge star outside the country.

  • srk fans doesn’t know that yrf having 31% share of Maratha Mandir theater.that’s why ddlj is running on that theater.
    Maratha Mandir theater owners want to discontinue the shows of ddlj but yrf force them to show movie…

  • No other Khan film can boast of such records! Started giving hits in last 3 years due to inflation. The other so called competitors know where they used to stand when the King was giving back to back hits in 90s and for most of 2000s without taking a single break or suffering a flop streak. You can try to catch up but you can never match up with the consistency and luminous career of SRK!

  • where is “maratha mandir” on this earth ? nobody knows that and “ddlj” completed 900 weeks there but still failed to beat “3 idiots” lifetime collection in 900 weeks.srk should build more “maratha mandirs” otherwise his popularity is losing very fast.

  • see the ticket rates in the above poster.balcony=20 rs,dc=17 rs.lol.it will run more 900 weeks bcoz of this cheapest rates in the world for any movie.even beggars can afford to see this SRK movie.lol

  • i watched this movie more than 20times..superb movie.
    All guys whts the problm with u?why u r so so so insecure?is this jealousy or what?indicine is jst asking how many times u watchd ths movie?nd whn nd etc etc……..but u all r so illetrate

  • @DP
    WRONG. He delivered many flops like raja hindutani, phir bhi dil hai hindustani, dil se, baadshah, one 2 ka 4, asoka, duplicate, swades, paheli. he was not even near consistent my friend.

    And even if he did, a big actor is not anyone who remains consistent but that who can have a comeback after a long fall, the one who is always there to reveal himself at the very right moment and that honor belongs to only SALMAN KHAN.
    he came, as a lead, in Bollywood with an ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER. Meine pyaar kiya. he stopped, of course, being a newcomer just to give another ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER. Hum Aapke Hain Koun which became the highest grossing film. he didn’;t stopped but slowed down again but came back with Blockbusters. Hum Saath Saath Hain and Biwi No.1. he slowed, came back with. Meine Pyaar Kiun Kiya, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and No Entry. this time he stopped but came back with blockbuster. Partner.
    then he stopped again for some long time when he came back with Blockbuster. Wanted. AND THEN he went back to his very first love ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER. DABANGG. Now he was far from stopping he Continued his Blockbuster and 100 crore streak. Ready, Bodyguard, Ek tha tiger, Dabangg 2 Now he is breaking his own records.
    At the time of their release they became:
    Dabangg became the second highest grossing film
    Ready became the third highest grossing film
    Bodyguard became the second highest grossing film
    Ek tha tiger became the second highest grossing film
    Dabangg 2 became the third highest grossing film

    soon SALMAN shall join 200 crore list. He is only actor to have the second, third,fourth and fifth highest grossing film to his name at the domestic boxoffice (Which actually Matters)

  • Hi

    Maratha mandir theatre is one of the oldest theatre in mumbai it is theatre where mughal e azam was premiered now regarding DDLG first of ALL it is not continuous 900 weeks means once in a week they play jacky chan or bruce lee movie and every day u will find the same audience we call bhaiya who work in near workshop of leathers near madanpura or nagpada and come to sleep in theatre and they will buy the Balcony tickets for 20 rs bcoz the air condition which is der only in balcony for this show so these labour pay 20 rs to sleep in the AlC and there are couples of near colleges like Maharashtra college and buy stall tickets as stall are always empty and I think you people know that they won’t be watching movies in empty stall so this how it is running and I’m saying this because I study in maratha mandir college yaa u got it right they have polytechnic college just next to theatre as well we have our labs just above balcony of the theatre so that is the reason I know it at the bull eyes and one more thing whenever we have parents meet or our annual day the shows are cancelled because we have our meet in the cinema hall.

  • its good that the movie is still running in theatre but even after completing 900 weeks its can’t cross even gadar lifetime collection forget abt hum aapke hai kaun which was released 1 year ago than DDLJ
    so at 90’s salman is also ahead with two ATBB MPK, HAHK, blockbuster like Saajan,Biwi No.1,Karan Arjun etc Hits like Sanam Bewafa, Judwaa, Hum Saath Saath hai, Hum Dil De chuke sanam, Pyar kiya to darna kya, Jab pyar kisi se hota hai, cults like AAA, Khamoshi etc in most of films he was solo actor so how cans stupid srk fans can say that salman is rising in last 3 years he was superstar from his first film and srk 2nd ATBB also came with Salman support it was salman star power who made KKHH to become ATBB from blockbuster, so due respect to srk but salman was still ahead at that time from srk without help of big banner and big director that called true star…….

  • ddlj run 900 weeks not bcoz of srk
    film was very good and last week the
    film earn 20,000
    in a year 52 week
    2,00,000 earn in year this movie run atleast 1200 weeks

  • @radha People here on Indicine today are just perplexed to read not one but two ‘pointless’ articles on SRK and to discover that nothing had been written on Hrithik, not even a Happy Birthday post or career achievements etc etc.
    Many fans feel that these articles on SRK mean nothing and further irritate fans when the SRK friendly media bring out countless of articles on the fading light that is SRKs career. The guy is living off past glory as DDLJ is still more popular than the evergreen classic JTHJ.

  • USP of salman fans :
    Go at any page , whether it is awards of SRK or any good thing abt SRK, they start barking like street dogs,but if accidently their salman gets an award (although it happens rarely), then they declare that award as the most fair award in the world.The most recent example is G-Cine awards.When SRK used to win it, then it was fake, but now G-Cine is more famous than filmfare( for them).
    Heil double standar.
    heil Bhai fans.

  • i have watched the movie more than 50 times for sure. My all time fav movie without any doubt. I remember my friend telling me dat his brother watched the movie everyday for 1 week when it got released

  • @Sachin11 Bro u sau balcony 20 rs dc 17 rs i m sure to say ur fav actor any movie run 10rs bal and 2 rs dc also can’t break the record

  • 900 weeks and is still not out! Perhaps the ONLY record of srk which can never be broken. Thank god atleast there is ONE record for srk fans to feel proud of or else this poor souls will remain disgruntled all their lives. Wouldnt it be amazing if tushaar kapoor breaks this record also!

  • i think there is only one deserving movie and it’s 3 idiot.ddlj is good movie but not deserving that even many other love stories are far better then ddlj

  • yeahhhhhh……..superlike….
    i hv watched DDLJ 4 times in maratha mandir…..AND believe me its experience was fully awesome…i hv never enjoyed this much in any other movie….

    & i can see 100 times in cinema if i were living in mumbai……

    AND friends believe me……i hv seen it on last sunday when i was in mumbai….& wid my full surprise THE BALCONY WAS FULL,AND other was semi full…….GREAT MOVIE EXPERIENCE EVER IN MY LIFE TIME…:)

  • i hate this film….it is just overated movie….

    u want to see romantic films?…watch these:-

    1) titanic…(bet u’ve watched it & even u know it is way better than this ddlj)

    2)kati patang( rajesh khanna magic)

    3)maine pyar kiya ( salman khan)

    4)kuch kuch hota hain( one of the few srk movies which are good….)

  • Evergreen movie. Any time any day any season any place any theatre any cost I can watch it. I will never get bored. Ab kuch logon (srk haters) ko pasand nahi aayee hogi. Koi baat nahi. Bade bade desho aisi choti choti baten hote rehti hai. They have an option there is Alexandra cinema nearby Maratha mandir haters can go nd watch dautat ki Jung, suryavanshi etc.
