Mughal emperors depicted as ‘villains’: Nasiruddin Shah

The series will be released on OTT platform Zee Vive. This actor is playing a multi-dimensional role as Emperor Akbar.

NDTV reported, a week before the release of the series, Naseeruddin said while talking about ‘Taj Divided by Blood’ in a media, if the Mughals have done such a bad thing, then they have to demolish the Red Fort, the Taj Mahal.

Naseeruddin Shah said that there is a growing tendency to misrepresent the history of India.

“Mughals are portrayed as villains in history. It amazes me that people do not understand the difference between Akbar and the murderer Nadir Shah or Timur. It doesn’t know that they wanted to loot India but the Mughals didn’t.”

Naseeruddin Shah also thinks that there is a lack of consciousness due to the lack of history practice in the country.

“Schools don’t seem to teach children about the Gupta dynasty, the Maurya dynasty, the Vijayanagara empire properly.”
