Not a single show of ‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical’ in the past two years has gone without a standing ovation, with audiences asking for more. The magnum opus musical has got critical acclaim and even swept the Broadway India Awards last year winning seven awards including Best Play.

With its super successful seasons across India and recently in Dubai, the play now travels to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur where it will be staged on Aug 10 and 11.

Director Feroz Abbas Khan said, “‘Mughal-e-Azam’ has an universal appeal which transcends barriers of language and culture. It is a story of love that seems to connect with audiences everywhere. We are delighted that the play is traveling to Malaysia as part of a cultural exchange between the two Govts. It encourages artistes to work harder when Govts support such work.”

Deepesh Salgia (Creative and Strategic Vision: Mughal-e-Azam) added, “We are grateful to the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia and the Government of India for facilitating the show through a Cultural Exchange programme. After the grand success of our show in Dubai, we look forward to engaging with audiences in Malaysia.”

‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical’ with its live singing, intricately designed choreography, noteworthy performances, world-class production design and elegantly styled Manish Malhotra costumes has created theatre history with each season.

‘Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical’ will be staged at the Istana Budaya also known as the Palace of Culture in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 10th and 11th 2018.

The musical will run for about two hours and twenty minutes each night at Istana Budaya. The Musical is in Hindi but there will be two LED screens carrying Bahasa Malaysia and English subtitles.
