Mughal-e-Azam is a 1960 Indian epic film. With its lavish production, K Asif's magnum opus took nine years and $ 2 million to finish. This was when a typical Bollywood film would cost around $ 20,000. The film broke box office records in India when released and held the record for the highest grossing film ever until the 1975 film Sholay broke its unadjusted record. In 2004, Sterling Investment Corp Pvt Ltd released a restored a color version of the film. This again was a huge success and the film ran for 25 weeks at the Box Office. This is one of the biggest box office hits in Indian cinema. The film netted $ 11.5 million at the box office worldwide. Adjusted for inflation, this amounts to $ 308 million (in 2010 prices). This was one of only two films K Asif completed.
