Mumbai's iconic Maratha Mandir theater screens 'Pathaan' alongside 'DDLJ'
Shah Rukh Khan's latest release Pathaan is running successfully in theaters worldwide, and its craze has gripped Mumbai's iconic Maratha Mandir theater as well. Taken over by the Pathaan fever, as a treat for all SRK fans, the popular single-screen cinema hall is now playing the Siddharth Anand-helmed film alongside the actor's 1995 cult classic musical romance movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ).
Why does this story matter?
- Since Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge's release in the year 1995, Maratha Mandir has continued to run shows of Khan and Kajol's iconic film.
- Even after nearly three decades, Khan's fans often head out to Maratha Mandir to watch DDLJ there.
- And now, with the single-screener playing both the SRK films, it is nothing less than a treat for his fans.
