The land of the sacred Ganga and the towering Himalayas has given the world some personalities whose ideals were resplendently as pure as the water of the Ganga and whose aims were lofty as the Himalayas. Four hundred and sixty two years ago, a man named Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar was born in this land of the Hindustan. History has recorded that this Mughal Emperor sprinkled the dust of the motherland with his blood. 'Mughal-E-Azam' is a page from the golden history of the land of Akbar. Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar was a lover of Hindustan. And his son Nuruddin Mohammad Salim loved a frightened little palace main, Anarkali. In this tussle, the destiny of Hindustan trembled, and the future of the country was imperiled. On one side was an emperor's responsibility towards an ever-growing empire, his plans, his problems and his political complications. On the other side were perfumed silken tresses kissing the broad shoulders of a prince in love.
