Rahil Azam, who was seen in Tu Aashiqui in the antagonist’s role, Shagun Sharma was also a part of it. Shagun is currently seen playing the role of Titli in Sasural Genda Phool 2 and Rahil shares his experience of working with her.
Sharing about his experience of working with Shagun, Rahil says, “Shagun worked with me almost 4 years back in the show Tu Aashiqui and she has always been a keen learner, full of talent. Shagun is a director’s actor. She used to keep questioning a lot about the process and technicalities. She is someone who accepts constructive criticism, so a person who keeps on learning, will always succeed in life.”

On being asked if he has watched her current show, Rahil says, “I have neither watched season 1 nor season 2, but having worked with me and having shared screen space with me, I am convinced that she will pull off the character. As I said earlier, she is an actor full of talent but she needed a director to channelise her talent in the right direction, so I think the show has given it to her and she will do the best.”
Lastly, on being asked about what projects he is working on, he says, “I am in talks for a project but can’t reveal much about it now. I have been focusing on doing the web as it’s a growing platform nowadays and as an actor, one needs to experiment. So, when something is finalised will share details.”

It’s hard to achieve perfection in any field, let alone cinema. There are always the stringent critics who will be unhappy with some aspect of a film. It is, however, truth universally acknowledged that K Asif’s Mughal-e-Azam — if not perfect — comes very close to that pinnacle of perfection. Talking about the 1960 film starring Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and Prithviraj Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar had once told PTI, “Asif sahab used to say, whenever a film will be made and will be ‘lajawab’ (perfect), people will ask, ‘Are you making Mughal-E-Azam?’”

Touted as one of the most tragic love stories to unfold in cinema, the story here follows Emperor Akbar’s (Prithviraj Kapoor) son Salim (Dilip Kumar) who has fallen in love with a commoner named Nadira, renamed Anarkali, (Madhubala) by his father. The conflict of class tears them apart since he is the heir to the throne. Akbar is vehemently opposed to this match but Salim is just as stubborn. As they wage a war against each other, Mughal-e-Azam becomes a tale of love and duty, and how sacrificing one over the other can topple the social structure. It is Akbar’s duty for his country over his love for his son that leads him to incarcerate Anarkali, and it is Salim’s love for her that leads him to commit treason against the throne.

It is essential to point out that Mughal-e-Azam is, in fact, a fictional film set amid some real-life characters. The film is based on a 1922 play named Anarkali by Imtiaz Ali Taj. Anarkali’s existence has been highly debated amongst historians with many pointing out that in real-life, she was one of Akbar’s wives and not a courtesan. Nevertheless, the story that has been immortalised on screen here is fiction but the legend and the popularity of Mughal-e-Azam has lead many to believe it as history.

While Mughal-e-Azam is remembered as a love story, one may find upon revisiting that this is, in fact, a father-son story. The father holds his head up high and considers duty towards his country his biggest karma, but the son believes that there is nothing more sacred than love. Watching it in 2021, it is evident that Salim cannot protect Anarkali but Akbar can just execute her whenever he wants. It makes you think if Salim is just a spoilt, stubborn, rich son of the ruler who is just upset that his father won’t let him have the woman he wants.
