King Khan is back on the silver screen after 4 years and his movie Pathaan seems unstoppable. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer has minted over 400 crores globally within just four days of its release and it refuses to slow down anytime soon.
And as most people are aware, SRK and Mumbai’s popular theatre Maratha Mandir have an age-old special bond to share. It dates back to 1995 when SRK’s film Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaenge was released and screened in Maratha Mandir.
Maratha Mandir has been screening shows of DDLJ without any hindrance till now. Something very rare in the cinema business.
Recently, after Pathaan was released, Maratha Mandir put up the film’s poster just beside DDLJ’s poster, and that left fans emotional. Sharing the poster, SRK’s manager Pooja Dadlani wrote on Instagram,
“Between these two pictures.. all of us have had a journey to cherish. @iamsrk’s journey… And just in case you don’t get tickets for Pathaan… you know what to watch!!”
Fans reacted to the same and showered in the comment section. Have a look.
Pathaan director Sidharth Anand who witnessed his biggest opening collection with this film shared after the film’s success that ‘numbers do matter’ for him.
“Scripting history. Everyone wants it, but one can’t plan it. It just happens. And when it does, it’s a very humbling experience. I’m feeling incredibly overwhelmed right now and inspired to get back on the film set and try and create something really special for audiences again. That’s my state of mind.”
