“My Mughal-E-Azam is a tribute to K Asif and Lata Mangeshkar”, says Feroz Abbas Khan, whose stage performance is creating havoc in the US | Hindi Movie News

Feroz Abbas Khan has done to K Asif’s timeless classic Mughal-E-Azam what Asif could have never imagined.
Speaking exclusively on the overwhelming response to the musical stage adaptation of Mughal-E-Azam, Feroz Khansays, “From the start when I planned this musical stage play I wanted it to convey the epic grandeur of the original. Hence no compromises on the quality of stage sound and props.We are here in the US for a 14-city tour and we are staging our show in the best theatres in all the cities of the US. We’ve covered three cities so far and it has been an experience that I cannot put into words. Three generations of Indians, some of them in wheelchairs, thronging to the theatres… I wish you were here to see for yourself what Mughal-e-Azam means to Indians over here in America.”
Most excitingly, all the immortal songs of Lata Mangeshkar from Mughal-E-Azam, Pyar kiya toh darna kya, Beqas pe karam kijiye, Mohe panghat pe nandlal chhed gayo and the rest of the memorabilia, are part of Feroz’s spectacular stage adaptation.“My artistes sing those songs of Lataji live on stage. No recorded songs, all done live each time in every city. My stage adaptation of Mughal-E-Azam is a tribute to K Asif, Lataji and Naushad saab. Every performance begins with a recorded message from Lataji. I had a very special rapport with her. I remember when Lataji was in London she had come all the way to Leicester to see our performance of Tumhari Amrita. She was very excited about Mughal-E-Azam going on stage. Sadly she is not here to see what we’ve done. But I hope she is smiling from above, as are K Asif, Shakeel Badayuni, Naushad, Dilip Kumar saab and Madhubala.”
