Shopping Center News - - NEWSMAKER NATIONAL -

Delhi is get­ting back one of its most pop­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment des­ti­na­tions. A lit­tle less than 10 years af­ter it was shut down, Chanakya is back as a DLF mall with a PVR mul­ti­plex, a New Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (NDMC) project. PVR has be­gun screen­ing films with the mall to be opened in a phased man­ner, be­gin­ning Oc­to­ber.

The project took off in 2008 af­ter the Coun­cil awarded the con­tract to DLF. This was pre­ceded by a long le­gal bat­tle with the orig­i­nal own­ers of the cinema which be­gan af­ter Chanakya’s lease ex­pired. The con­struc­tion work, how­ever, got de­layed for var­i­ous rea­sons, in­clud­ing the need to seek clear­ances from var­i­ous agen­cies like Delhi Fire Ser­vice, Air­port Author­ity of In­dia, Delhi Ur­ban Art Com­mis­sion and Delhi De­vel­op­ment Author­ity.

“Chanakya will house some of the fore­most In­dian and in­ter­na­tional luxury brands, a 3-screen PVR cinema and a multi-cui­sine food space of­fer­ing the best din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the city. The brands that are slated to open at Chanakya in­clude Her­mes, Mont Blanc, Ver­sace Col­lec­tion, Ni­rav Modi and Grass­root by Anita Don­gre, to name a few,” a DLF spokesper­son told The Times of In­dia.
