One of the leading pioneers of content acquisition and distribution in India, Shemaroo Entertainment Limited, today announced they have launched the making of the Broadway-style musical, “Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical” exclusively on Prime Video through the Prime Video Direct self-publishing program. For the first time ever, Prime members will get to see the efforts and the brain behind creating the historical play.
The documentary on “Mughal – e – Azam: The Musical” has seen over 200,000 audiences across Asia. It highlights the efforts of everyone, right from the actors, the director and its crew members who have worked day and night to ensure that “Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical” achieves the glory it has today. The musical has won 7 out of the 14 Broadway World India Awards like Best Director Award to Feroz Khan, Best Costume Design to Manish Malhotra, Best Choreography to Mayuri Upadhyay and many more.
Talking about the association, Hiren Gada, CEO, Shemaroo Entertainment said, “Our constant endeavour at Shemaroo is to provide our consumers with entertaining content. With the premiere of “Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical” documentary on Prime Video the audience will get to know the efforts that go behind making a theatrical play of such a huge scale.”
Director of Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical, Feroz Abbas Khan, said, “K.Asif Sahab’s “Mughal E Azam” is etched in the collective memory of the nation. It is sacrosanct. My well-wishers believed that I was audacious, and this might be the defining mistake of my career. The reimagined stage version is a tribute to the genius of the original creators. We have retained most of the memories of the film and added a few more of our own.”
Deepesh Salgia, Creative and Strategic Vision – Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical said, “Since the inception of Home video and satellite TV, as far as Mughal-e-Azam is concerned, Shapoorji Pallonji has always partnered with Shemaroo, whether it was the B & W version or the film or later the colour version. We are happy to continue this association with the release of documentary on Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical in the 25th year of our relationship.”
Shemaroo is providing the deserved exposure to those efforts which go unnoticed behind the stage and are not seen by the audience. The overly popular Musical receives standing ovation at every new centre. Shemaroo Entertainment will soon release the making of “Mughal-e-Azam – The Musical” on other platforms as well.
