The most expensive and extravagant Indian film to date, first seen in 1960, this Bollywood classic MUGHAL-E-AZAM is the tale of an explosive confrontation between forbidden love and the iron laws of the state. One of Indian cinema's most magnificent epics, K. Asif's high-budget masterpiece took 17 years to make, and is famed for its lavish recreation of the days of Emperor Akbar. The film draws on the popular legend of the love affair between Anarkali, a beautiful court-dancer, and Prince Salim, whose passion leads to war with his father, the Emperor.
