Mughal-e-Azam relates the fabled tale of Prince Salim who, against the will of his father, the great Mughal Emperor Akbar, declares his love for a dancer said to be ‘beautiful as blossom’. When the Emperor responds by imprisoning his beloved, Salim dares to lead a rebellion against his mighty imperial father. With 160 shows to date, Mughal-e-Azam is the biggest theatre production to hit the stages of India, winning three Broadway World India Awards. The music by Piyush Kathenojia and costumes, sets, lighting, and video effects are truly amazing. Stage direction is by Feroz Abbas Khan and choreography by Mayuri Upadhya.
