Audience wait for the start of a show at Liberty Cinema in New Delhi

Ritwik Sharma New Delhi
At Delite Cinema on the edge of Old Delhi, there is still an enthusiastic, albeit lean, crowd for a morning show of Pathaan in its fourth week. At the interval, some pass quick half-time verdicts, others pick up something from the food counter to snack on, and a few take selfies with posters in the lobby, before disappearing back into the dark hall to resume their whoops and cheers.
 
A few kilometres away, at Liberty Cinema in Karol Bagh, another populous place in the city, Pathaan is drawing in crowds similarly, with several couples here for a matinee on Valentine’s Day.
 
Thanks
