Akbar mania seems to be all around. A new Hindi ("Bollywood") movie, 'Jodhaa Akbar', was just released about Jodhaa & the Emperor.

It is directed by the director of 'Lagaan', and is currently the top grossing movie of the year in India.

Do you not consider the Roman Empire "Western"? I'd say Nero & Caligula, for example, were despots with unbridled power over all the territory they controlled. Or does that date back before the East/West division as we think of it today, even though their empire extended well into the East?
