Mughal-E-Azam (2018)


In the glorious era of the Mughals, Emperor Akbar’s desire for a son in fulfilled when his wife, Jodhabai, gives birth to Salim, who grows up to be a spoiled, flippant and disrespectful teen. Consequently, his father sends him to the battlefield and war to teach him courage and discipline. Fourteen years later, he returns home as a distinguished soldier. Salim, now a young man, falls in love with Anarkali, a lowly courtesan.

Bahar, a dancer who covets the love of the prince, is consumed with jealousy upon discovering the secret love affair of Salim and Anarkali, and expose it to Akbar. The emperor, full of royal pride, vehemently disapproves of the relationship and imprisons Anarkali, which leads Salim to declare an open rebellion and goes to war against his own father. This defiance and uncompromising love, threatens the existence and future of the Mughal Empire.

The play is based on K. Asif’s epic movie Mughal-e-Azam.

Produced by Shapoorji Pallonji.
