Mughal-E-Azam (Hindi: मुग़ल-ए-आज़म; Urdu: مغلِ اعظم; English: The Greatest of the Mughals) is a 1960 Bollywood historical epic film[3] directed by K. Asif and produced under the banner of Sterling Investment Corporation Pvt Ltd. The film re-tells a popular Indian tale, which was previously filmed as Loves of a Mughal Prince (1928) and Anarkali (1953). It is loosely based on an episode in the life of the Mughal Prince Salim, who went on to become the Emperor J.



With its unmatched production, K. Asif's magnum opus took twelve total years and $330,000 to complete this movie. This was when a typicalBollywood film would cost just around $200,000. The film created box office records in India when released. The film netted INR5.5 crore at the box office worldwide. Adjusted for inflation, this amounts to INR132.7 crore. It held the record for the highest grossing film ever until the 1975 film Sholaybroke its unadjusted record.[4] In 2004, Sterling Investment Corp Pvt Ltd released a restored colour version of the film. This again was a huge success and the film successfully completed 25 weeks at the Box Office.

Mughal-E-Azam is one of the classic hits and considered a milestone in Indian cinema.[5] This was one of only two films K. Asif completed. When he died in 1971, he left behind two unfinished films, Sasta Khoon Mahenga Paani and Love and God, the latter released by K. C. Bokadiain 1986.
