Maratha Mandir has been running Dilwale Dulhainiya Le Jayenge since its release in 1995. It is very surprising news that the morning show at 11:30 am still runs as Houseful every day.

This December this film is completing its 1000 weeks and 7000 days in this theatre, so the theater’s managing director has decided to draw the curtain of this film permanently.

Mr. Desai says, “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.”

So at the end of this year India has one more record that is the longest running film in the Indian cinema. Thank to entire team of DDLJ for make such an incredible history making movie.
