Maqbool Meaning [मक़बूल,مقبول]

Maqbool is an Urdu word which comes from Persian. The word in Persian means accepted, admitted, acceptable.

In Urdu, the word maintains its meaning, but is more used as agreeable, pleasing, or popular. As such, the meaning comes from the same root. As someone who is accepted by everyone is one who is popular, hence the meaning.

Here it's worth noticing that 'Qubool' is the word that is used for accepting.

In case of Vishal Bharadwaj's movie Maqbool, it was a character's name, which is, by Vishal's tradition, begins with the same letter as Macbeth, the novel of which it is an adaptation and its main character Macbeth.
