About Mughal E Azam

Mughal-E-Azam is a 1960 Bollywood historical epic film directed by K. Asif and produced under the banner of Sterling Investment Corporation Pvt Ltd. The film re-tells a popular Indian tale, which was previously filmed as Loves of a Mughal Prince (1928) and Anarkali (1953). It is loosely based on an episode in the life of the Mughal Prince Salim, who went on to become the Emperor Jahangir.

With its unmatched production, K. Asif's magnum opus took twelve total years and $330,000 to complete this movie. This was when a typical Bollywood film would cost just around $200,000. The film created box office records in India when released. The film netted INR5.5 crore at the box office worldwide. Adjusted for inflation, this amounts to INR132.7 crore. It held the record for the highest grossing film ever until the 1975 film Sholay broke its unadjusted record.[4] In 2004, Sterling Investment Corp Pvt Ltd released a restored colour version of the film. This again was a huge success and the film successfully completed 25 weeks at the Box Office.

Mughal-E-Azam is one of the classic hits and considered a milestone in Indian cinema.[5] This was one of only two films K. Asif completed. When he died in 1971, he left behind two unfinished films, Sasta Khoon Mahenga Paani and Love and God, the latter released by K. C. Bokadia in 1986. Emperor Akbar (Prithviraj) and his Rajput wife, Jodha Bai (Durga) pray for a son. Akbar offers rituals to initiate the birth of a successor. After a child is born, the news is brought to the emperor by a maid. Overjoyed at his prayers being answered, the Emperor gives to the maid his ring and promises to grant her any one wish she asks.

The son, Prince Salim, grows to be a weak and pleasure-loving boy. His father sends him to war to learn courage and discipline. After 14 years, Salim returns as a distinguished soldier (Dilip Kumar). Salim falls in love with Anarkali (Madhubala), a court-dancer. (It was Anarkali's mother to whom Akbar gave his ring after Salim's birth). Salim wants to marry Anarkali and arranges secret meetings between her and himself. However, the jealous Bahaar, a dancer of a higher rank, wants the crown of India and she attempts to make the prince love her so she may ascend to queenship. She exposes the love between the Salim and the dancer Anarkali. Salim pleads for Anarkali's hand, but his father objects and throws Anarkali into prison. Despite imprisonment, Anarkali refuses to reject Salim.
