After staying away from showbiz for almost two years, veteran actress Aruna Irani made her comeback to television with the Sony Entertainment show, Porus. And now, she has bagged another historical show called Mughal –E – Azam.
To be produced by Anirudh Pathak, the upcoming magnum opus is being made on a lavish budget. The makers are trying their best to put together a cast that could grab audiences’ attention almost immediately.
Irani has been cast to play a pivotal part in the historical show. According to sources, she has been roped in to play the character of Hamida Banu Begum aka Maryam Makani, the wife of Mughal Emperor Humayun and mother of Akbar. The seasoned actress will be the grandmother of actor Shaheer Sheikh, who essays the role of Salim on the soap.
Anirudh Pathak’s ongoing shows, Prithvi Vallabh and Chandra Shekhar Azad, have been praised by the audience for their in-depth research and accuracy. We hope his next show also hits the home run.
Mughal –E – Azam is slated to hit the airwaves on Colors.
