Not Just Heartbeats, Even Time Stopped in the Uphaar Cinema Fire – The Quint

It was on June 13, 1997, the Bollywood blockbuster ‘Border’ was screening inside Uphaar Cinema in south Delhi’s Greenpark when a fire broke out halfway through the movie. The flames claimed the lives of 59 people and over 100 were injured due to suffocation in the ensuing stampede.

Twenty years have gone by since the tragedy. But inside the ill-fated cinema hall, time has stood still.
