Aditya Chopra’s eternal romantic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge could finally end its theatrical run on December 18 2014. The theatre owners of Maratha Mandir are planing to talk to Chopra and the stakeholders of the theatre, after which they will decide if the matinee show at the theatre will be replaced with some other film after nearly 20 years!
“We may not show this film after December once it completes 1000 weeks. Over the years, we got good response as the cinema hall is close to the Mumbai Central railway station and state transport bus stand. Recently, the collection has taken a nosedive and, therefore, we are thinking of discontinuing the show” says Manoj Desai, the managing director of the iconic Maratha Mandir.
“The film is regularly aired on television and it has been nearly 20 years since it was released. So, the entire generation has watched the it and we have also had the audience, which has seen it more than 100 times. But we feel that this particular screen can be used for other shows now. The final decision will be taken once we have the consent of all stakeholders”
The journey for the longest and most loved films in the history of Indian Cinema, could come to an end in December this year.
