In the glorious era of the Mughals, the reign of Emperor Akbar stands out. Emperor Akbar, one of the most renowned rulers of the Mughal empire, goes on a pilgrimage to pray that the gods answer his prayers for a son. His wife, Jodhabai, soon afterwards, gives birth to the infant Prince Salim.

Growing up, Prince Salim is pampered, fussed over and spoiled. He is disrespectful to his elders and rude to the court. In an attempt to instil in him a sense of discipline and to groom him for his future role as ruler, Emperor Akbar sends Prince Salim to war, hoping that he will come back much changed.

Fourteen years pass and Prince Salim returns home, no longer the young boy he once was, but a handsome and distinguished soldier. In court, a pretty courtesan, Anarkali, catches the Prince's eye and he falls in love with her.

Their clandestine relationship is discovered by Bahar, a court dancer of a higher rank, who herself covets the attention of Prince Salim. In a jealous fit, she reveals the details of Prince Salim and Anarkali's affair to Emperor Akbar, who decides to put an end to the romance by separating the lovers.

When Emperor Akbar throws Anarkali in jail, Prince Salim rebels and amasses an army to confront his father and rescue Anarkali. His defiance against his father and his uncompromising love for Anarkali galvanises the people to go to war, threatening the fate of the Mughal Empire.

This musical extravaganza is based on K. Asif's movie, Mughal-E-Azam.
The Play is produced by Shapoorji Pallonji, and directed by Feroz Abbas Khan.

Mughal-E-Azam comes to Singapore for the first time this August from 24-26 at the Esplanade Theater.
