Colors announces legendary historical saga ‘Dastaan-E-Mohabbat : Salim Anarkali’

Colors announces legendary historical saga ‘Dastaan-E-Mohabbat : Salim Anarkali’

New Delhi, Sep 27 (UNI) A love that shook the very foundation of the Mughal empire, a timeless romance of a young crown prince and a beautiful courtesan, Colors channel gears up to revive the greatest love story there ever has been ‘Dastaan-E-Mohabbat: Salim Anarkali’.



‘Dastaan-E-Mohabbat : Salim Anarkali’ tells the tale of charming Mughal prince Salim (Shaheer Sheikh) and the mesmerising rakassa Anarkali (played by Sonarika Bhadoria) who challenged the norm and chose to fight for their love.

This magnum opus boasts of an ensemble cast with veteran actor Shahbaz Khan essaying the role of Akhbar, Gurdeep Kohli Punjjplays Jodha and Aruna Irani as Hamida Begum. Much loved television faces like Piyush Sahdev, Tasneem Sheikh and Parvati Sehgal will also be part of this rebellious love drama.

Speaking about this development, Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment said, “Set against the historical backdrop, the show recounts the epic love story of prince Salim who is in love with a kaneez, Anarkali. The society’s disdain for this forbidden love coupled with his father Akbar’s animosity makes Salim not only a rebel but also ready to relinquish the throne - thereby making this tragic tale a compelling story.”

“We have roped in some fine actors like Shaheer Shaik, Sonarika Bhadoria, Gurdeep Kohli Punjj and Aruna Irani amongst others to play these larger than life characters. This unique narrative on COLORS is sure to grip the viewers as it is a portrayal of an era that we have grown up both watching and reading about. It’s time to retell this evergreen love saga for this generation,” Manisha said.

Anirudh Pathak, Producer and Creator of ‘Dastaan-e- Mohabbat: Salim Anarkali’, Writers Galaxy, further added saying, “The show brings in the dynamism of the Mughal Era and will depict the courtship of Salim and Anarkali. With advanced technology and great creativity, we are looking forward to give our audience a brilliant cinematic experience. Keeping in mind the grandeur of the show - we have the best team on board to help reflect this version of history that has greatly been written about.”



Shaheer Sheikh who plays Salim said, “Salim is a dream role for any actor. I think the most difficult part will be to portray the layers and the pain of the character. He is an extremely complex person so it wont be that simple’ however - that’s what I like about this role.”

“The makers have got the look and the sets right and hopefully we can all do justice to the characters. Being a TV actor, our options are very limited and I feel very lucky to get this opportunity to play the iconic character of Salim,” Shaheer said.



Sonarika Bhadoria who plays Anarkali, said, “The show will be a rendition of the immortal saga of Prince Salim and courtesan Anarkali. It will convey the message of love which takes precedence over rules and societal norms.”

“There is a lot of mystique when it comes to depicting a strong character like Anarkali. I’ve been taking Kathak lessons to get the nuances of the character,” Sonarika said.

The eternal profession of love and passion between Salim and Anarkali has been immortalized in history and is now being brought to life with a tightly woven narrative.

Produced by Writers' Galaxy, the show will premiere on October 1 and will air Monday to Friday at 2030 hrs on Colors.
