Discussion: There were real emperors of 'Mughal-e-Azam'. Asif
The madness, imagination, and vitality needed to make the film 'Mughal-e-Azam' in the 1950s. Asif was packed with codec
Karimuddin Asif, the nephew of cigarette or cigar ash, who was always nipple, was niece of the actor.
Initially Nazir tried to connect them with the movies but Asif did not have heart there.
Nazir opened a shop for them.
Within a few days, the shop had to be shut down because it was seen that most of Asif's time was spent in romancing a neighboring girl.
Nazir again forced him to return to film production again.
The magic of 'Mughal-e-Azam' still retains
Of Asif directed only two films in his life, 'Flowers' in 1944 and 'Mughal-e-Azam'.
But in spite of this, his name will always be written in Swarnakarsa in Indian film history.
Yasir Abbasi, author of the recent book 'It is a matter of those days', points out, "Mughal-e-Azam has seen at least 100 times."
"But even today when he comes on TV, I can not change the channel."
"Kamal's 'Vision' and 'Passion' was in Asif. Despite doing only two films, Asif is kept in the top of the box of directors."
The dialogues were 'Mughal-e-Azam'
Although every aspect of 'Mughal-e-Azam' is strong, but it has played a very big role in popularizing this film among the audience, its dialogues
Yasir Abbasi explains that before Anarkali was selected alive, Akbar had asked for his last wish, and he says that he wants to become India's Malka-e-Azam for a day.
"Asif asked the authors in his three dialogues about what Anarkali should say, Amanullah Sahab, who was the father of Zainat Aman and Ehsan Rizvi narrated his writing. After this Asif Sahib looked towards Wajahat Mirza."
"Wajahat Mirza put the paan peak in his mouth and said, 'These are all' Dialogues' nonsense. What is the need of so many words?"
"He then took out a pamphlet from his pannan and read, Anarkali will just salute and will only say, 'In exchange for these superabundant monks, this kaniz Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar apologizes to his blood.'
"Mirza had said that Asif ran and embraced them, and both the present present there, both the dialogue writers torn and threw their papers."
When the song 'Mohe Panghat Pe Nandlal Chad Gayo' was being filmed, first Asif and dance director Lachhu Maharaj came to Naushad and said, "Naushad sahab sing this song that the time of Wajid Ali Shah's court, Thumri and Dadra recall Come on. "
"Naushad said that in Kathak dance the faces and hands are the most important, it will be filmed on Madhubala in the film, but will he be able to do justice with it because he is not a kathak dance?
"Lachhu Maharaj said," Leave this to me. "He performed dance hours of dance from Madhubala before shooting. The whole song was filmed on him and no 'duplicate' was used."
Bhutto came daily in the shooting of Mughal-e-Azam
Interestingly, many older people used to reach the set to see the shooting of this song.
Chinese Prime Minister Chu An Lai, famous Shayer Faiz Ahmed Faiz and later Pakistan's Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto saw the shooting of Mughal-e-Azam.
Yasir Abbasi explains, "At that time Bhutto used to stay in Mumbai, as long as the shooting of this song took place, to see the shooting of the day, Bhutto and Asif had a deep friendship, whenever they were on the set, Asif Sahib and Ate people with food.
"At that time no one had imagined that this man who would be present on the set of Mughal-e-Azam would one day become the Prime Minister of Pakistan."
