'Mughal-E-Azam' follows the love affair between Mughal Prince Salim (who went on to become Emperor Jahangir) and a court dancer Anarkali.
The relationship is disapproved of by his father, Emperor Akbar, and envied by a senior dancer who wishes to become queen. Salim and Anarkali refuse to part with each other, leading to a war between father and son which the latter loses. Salim's life is spared in exchange for Anarkali's, who is eventually exiled.
