She added, “And I’d also like to thank and give full credit to Vikram Gaikwad and his team for the incredible prosthetics and make up! Can’t wait for you’ll to watch the film in the theatres!! See you there on the 19th of August!!!”

August 5 marks the anniversary of two of Hindi cinema’s most iconic films – Mughal-e-Azam and Hum Aapke Hain Koun.

K Asif’s Mughal-e-Azam starring Prithviraj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Madhubala, Durga Khote among others released in theatres in 1960 and over the last six decades, it has become the most celebrated Hindi film all across the world. The film’s plot follows the fictional tale of Salim and Anarkali, the star-crossed lovers, whose love is not supported by Emperor Akbar.

K Asif’s film is said to have inspired many modern-day filmmakers including Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Mughal-e-Azam is one of the few films that was released in black & white with the famed song “Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya” being filmed in technicolour.
