The Maratha Mandir is mostly known today for having screened Bollywood blockbuster Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, for 20 years straight from its release in 1995 to 2015. But, this iconic theater has more legendary feats to its history of over 50 years. The Bollywood classic Mughal-E-Azam premiered here in 1960 and ran continuously for six years. And as any film buff from that era will excitedly recall, actor Dilip Kumar rode on a horse to the theater at its premiere! Even a bunch of elephants and horses were brought to the cinema to celebrate the premiere. However, the first film to have premiered here was Sadhna, starring Sunil Dutt and Vyjayanthimala in 1958.
