'Mughal-E-Azam' flash mob takes over Times Square to promote a musical show

mughal e azam

Times Square in New York City got a taste of the iconic Indian film Mughal-E-Azam and its timeless song. A group of kathak dancers danced to the song 'Jab Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya' to promote an upcoming musical.

In the viral video, it was seen that the dancers dressed in Anarkali suits and caps are gathered at the Square and a crowd is looking at them. Soon the flash mob began and onlookers were spellbound. Many also recorded the performance.

The dance was to promote a show called 'Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical" which is going to be in the city next month. The makers of the show are currently on their North American tour. The group will be performing in the US and Canada.

"Aaiye iss afsaane ko haqeeqat mei badalte hue dekhiye! The Broadway-inspired musical that started in India in 2016 with a simple goal, to immortalise the love for Mughal-e-Azam in the hearts of its fans & the world, has now reached another significant milestone. Our prelude was screened at the Times Square with a magnificent flashmob prepared by the elegant Kathak dancers for the exclusive promotions of the North American tour of the Musical. The musical has won 7 Broadway World Awards & continues to serve as a pioneer in Indian theatre & arts. The North American tour has just begun & we can’t wait to see what’s there in store for us," read the caption of the video.

According to the official website, director Feroz Abbas Khan did not want to recreate the 1960 film but pay tribute to its maker K Asif through the play. The soundtrack and lyrics were taken from the original film and newly composed songs were also added to the play. Artists will be singing live on stage with an orchestra and a choral score.

The story of Mughal-E-Azam was inspired by a play called 'Anarkali' written in 1922 by Pakistani dramatist Imtiaz Ali in Lahore.
