New Delhi, Oct 2 (PTI) The century-old Roshanara Club in Delhi besides serving as a cradle of Indian cricket, has a place in world cinema history as it featured in Richard Attenborough's Oscar-winning film on Mahatma Gandhi.

"Gandhi", Attenborough's 1982 film which won multiple Academy Awards, continues to hold its magic for the audience, even more than 40 years since it hit the theatres.

The biopic was shot on different locations in India, in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Patna, among others.
