Mughal-e-Azam, the epic directed by K. Asif, which was in the making for decades was finally released in 1960. It featured Prithviraj Kapoor as Akbar, Dilip Kumar as Salim and Madhubala as Anarkali, all of whom gave their best to make the film memorable and an all-time great Indian movie. The confrontation scenes and dialogues between Prithviraj and Dilip Kumar are a treat to watch. No effort was spared in making this masterpiece that the sets built for the famous song sequence ‘Pyaar kiya to darna kya’ cost as much as making a movie at that time. But this labour of love did not disappoint the producer and director, as the movie broke all records and was the highest grosser for many years to come.
