Mumbai Diary: Sunday Dossier

Mughal-e-Azam scores a grand seven
It's a milestone moment for one of the longest running plays in recent times. Feroz Abbas Khan's Mughal-e-Azam has won not one but seven awards at the BroadwayWorld India Awards. The awards cover the world, over 11 countries including Canada and the US, and is perceived to be one of the landmark honours in the field of theatre. The voting happens across 56 cities. The timing of the win seems apt too - the announcement has come right before the production ventures into its 100th show, next month in Delhi.


An elated Khan says, "I'm overwhelmed with the awards. This belongs to the entire team of extra-ordinary artists and rare human beings who gave it their all, so that the world could experience our best. On behalf of the entire team, I'd like to thank Indian audiences and Broadway World for this honour." The musical has swept awards for direction, best ensemble cast, choreography, costume design, light design, set design and best play. Deepesh Salgia, of Shapoorji Pallonji, that has produced the play, says, "An international honour for your first theatre production is a rare feat. It's a moment of great pride for the entire team."
