The Taj may have been built over 350 years ago but it took an Akbar Khan to resurrect it. The director with his director's cut version of Taj Mahal -- An Eternal Love Story is making waves the globe over now.
 
 
When contacted at Damascus where Taj was showcased at the opening ceremony of the 'Special Indian Night', Khan is excited about the accolades and critical acclaim that it has won there.
 
 
Earlier, The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh who saw the film with his family presented a print of this film to the former President of Pakistan Gen. Parvez Musharraff for his viewing, as a gift from India.
 
 
Taj has also been adorned by two Indian National Awards for best costumes and art direction by Hon'ble President of India Mrs. Pratibha Patil, besides being selected by Dubai International Film Festival committee for a world premiere on Dec 11.
 
 
Recently the film was invited by the Govt. of Abu Dhabi for a special screening at the Al-Dhafra Theatre of Authority for Culture & Heritage.
 
 
Taj is also slated at the prestigious 32nd Cairo International Film Festival commencing from  Nov 18.
 
"The Taj is considered to be the greatest wonder of the world and has become the focus of innumerable romantic stories. It has inspired kings, queens, commoners, heads of states, artists, poets, photographers; connoisseurs of beauty ever since it was build 350 years ago. It is with this inspiration that I dared to produce and direct the magnum opus on the eternal love story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal," says Akbar Khan. "And  am proud Taj is getting back the glory it deserved."
