Mughal -E- Azam (An Epic of Eternal Love)
Mughal -E- Azam (An Epic of Eternal Love)
Description
Back of the Book

‘ So many people come here and verbatim they reproduce
the Dialogues scene after scene of Mughal-e-Azam…
It is amazing that you see the response of the people
in terms of their emotions the tenderness they show.’
Dilip Kumar Actor (played Princes Salim in Mughal-e-Azam)

Mughal-e-Azam is a classic

The splendour of the Bygone era has never been recreated with such eye filling sumptuousness…the dialogues are like pieces culled from period literature the lines reverberate in the mind of the viewer long after the season has changed and other merchandise has been placed on exhibition at the cinema hall
Saira Bano, Actor

Mughal-e-Azam is among the top three films ever produced in India.’
(Outlook Survey in 2003)

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
