Producers Yash Raj Films and theatre Maratha Mandir, which had decided to pull down Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge after its historic run of 1009 weeks, have mutually decided to continue screening the movie for the sake of its fans.
The last show of the film, which stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, last show 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.
"The sudden announcement of DDLJ being pulled out from Maratha Mandir at the end of 1009 unprecedented weeks, resulted in a spontaneous and an overwhelming outcry from the cinema going audience, as well as dedicated fans of the movie.
"Given this, it has been mutually decided to continue the screening in the same 11:30 am morning show - without breaking the uninterrupted run of the movie," the production company added.
DDLJ released on October 19, 1995. The cult romantic film, which marked Aditya Chopra's debut as a director, completed 1000 weeks in December last year.
