Producers Yash Raj Films and theatre Maratha Mandir, which had decided to stop screening Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayeinge after its historic run of 1009 weeks, have mutually decided to continue screening the movie for the sake of fans.
The last show of the iconic film, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, was supposed to be on February 19 but the Maratha Mandir management was flooded with requests to reinstate the movie based on which they decided to reconsider their decision.
“We are very happy to announce that Raj & Simran will continue to draw audiences and reinforce the timeless romance the movie has embodied over the last two decades,” Yash Raj Films confirmed in a statement.
DDLJ was released on October 19, 1995. The cult romantic film, which marked the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra, completed its 1000 weeks in December last year.
