When Nargis was about to become 'Salim's Anarkali', but at the last minute, Madhubala won like this

Nargis was about to become Anarkali: We all know that the cult film ‘Mughal-E-Azam’ of Hindi cinema is one of the favorite films of millions of people. This movie was released in the year 1960. Madhubala’s acting and beauty in this movie made everyone go crazy for her. But did you know that before Madhubala, Nargis was being finalized for the role of Anarkali in the movie? The superstar actress Nargis of that time was in awe of all hearts. According to media reports, Raj Kapoor was also impressed by her beauty. At the same time, Dilip Kumar also liked Nargis. Apart from this, Nargis was also wanted by Asif, the director of the movie ‘Mughal-e-Azam’. At the same time, planning was being done to make ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ in the 40s, during that time there was partition in the country. After independence, the director of the film moved to Pakistan and it was closed.

After independence, Asif decided to make the movie ‘Mughal-e-Azam’. He gave the role of Salim to Dilip Kumar and cast Nargis for the role of Anarkali. However, according to media reports, when Nargis learned that Dilip Kumar would be playing the role of Salim, he refused to work on the film. This is also mentioned in Rajkumar Keswani’s book ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, according to which there were two reasons for Nargis’ refusal to play Anarkali. First, Dilip Kumar was good friends with Raj Kapoor and second, Nargis’s mother, Jaddanbai, got angry with director K Asif and Dilip Kumar during the filming of the movie ‘Hulchal’. According to media reports, in the film Hustle, the filmmakers put some intimate scenes between Nargis and Dilip Kumar, which Nargis’s mother did not like.

Madhubala was cast alongside Dilip Kumar in the movie ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ after Nargis’ refusal. The movie was made and it turned out to be a huge success. Even today, this movie is considered one of the classic movies of Hindi cinema. The beautiful couple of Madhubala and Dilip Kumari touched everyone’s heart in the film.
