Jodha Akbar 19 April 2021 update: Amer Fort: Some lady is praising Jodha’s beauty, she says that the jewellery is gifted by her brother Sujamal, she finds her ear ring missing and goes to find it at her mother’s room.
She overhears the lady and her mother’s convo and comes to know that it was her mother who sent the letters to her and SB. She is deeply hurt and questions her mother, enquires the reason which spoilt her reputation in front of her brother and father. Finally her mother relents and tells her about the prophecy by Shagunibai. Jodha assures her that she will prefer death and wont ever go to the Mughal’s house as she is a true Rajputani.
Sujamal is conniving with Shareefuddin to topple Amer and take revenge from King Bharmal. Shareef asks him to prove his loyalty by licking his shoes, Sujamal refuses and tells that its loyalty which he wanted from Mughals and not slavery. Shareefuddin is impressed and strikes friendship, gives him a token and assures him of the right time to start the war.
The ladies from the harem are organising a mela, Meena Bazaar and discussing who will get the best benefit at the hands of Jalal. Whom will Jalal favour and from where will he buy the most.They wonder why Rukaiya is given so much importance than them. Ruqaiya comes there and gives a cold stare at everyone. She tells the eunuch that though she wont put up a stall but still for Jalal –she will be the chosen one.
The ladies are awaiting and Jalal is doing the rounds of the stalls , he doesnt like the shoes which Zeenat shows him and then visits the stall where Ruqaiya is busy having hookah. He asks Ruks why has she not decorated her stall, she states that its the simplicity which counts the most. She tells him that she will show him something which he will buy at any cost. She comes up with pasmeena shawl and tells Jalal about its importance and the goodness. Jalal is in doubt so she makes him wear it, asks him to have hookah and see for himself. Jalal finally agrees that though its old but its really good, she quotes its price to be 1 lakh gold coins, Jalal is surprised but eventualy agrees as he always likes to keep the things he loves. Jalal leaves after giving a final glance at others and then Ruks.
Ruks tells the ladies that they spent their time decorating themselves and the stall but forgot that its only her who knows what Jalal really wants.
One of the ladies tell that very soon Ruks pride will fall.
Jodha is preparing food in the kitchen, Dadi and other ladies tease her, she blushes. Dadi tastes and finds it very spicy, Jodha says that this dish was according to SB’s tastes. Dadi tells that she wants to celebrate Diwali and yamdwitiya for Sujamal as this will be the last one before marriage. Bharmal gets angry at the very mention of Sujamal, Dadi sees him some reason, Bharmal tells her that she has to cross Agra to reach Mathura for a holy dip in Yamuna. The other men assures him of her safety.Dadi tells the story of brother-sister of Yam and Yamuna to all the girls.
Jodha along with girls are celebrating Diwali festival with diyas, performs puja of Laxmi.
Some ladies are putting diyas and MA comes there and threatens them to stop the rituals when Jalal’s mother arrives there and asks them to go ahead with the function, she tells MA that it was on Diwali nite that she was saved by some Hindus when she was carrying Jalal. MA agrees and Jalal’s mother leave. MA takes this opportunity to once again threaten the ladies there and tells one of them that she will make her life hell if she continues lighting up the diya. They back out and MA tells the eunuch to clean the place as she will do the namaaz on that very place.
Another confidante of Ruks informs Ruks about the incident, Ruks tells that she is getting too big for her shoes but she knows her weakness, MA’s son–Adham Khan.
Adham Khan is whipping someone and everyone is petrified, he tells all to pay jaziya asap which is levied only on Hindus. Some old man tries to go against him, AK asks him to convert to Islam, threatens him for his grandson’s life, the old man relents and AK announces that the Mughals will neither have to pay jaziya nor whipped. Some soldier comes and informs AK that BK has won over some Rajput kingdom and he is going to cut off his head.
A king is in chains produced before BK, BK asks him for a last wish, BK is about to kill him. Jalal comes there and tells him that it will be jaan ke badle jaan, zindagi ke badle zindagi. The Rajput king tells him that Jalal’s granpa Humayun who was defeated at the hands of Sher Shah Suri , was given shelter by the Rajputs hence he should be freed. Jalal thinks over it and announces that the king should be released. BK is shocked to hear this and demands reason from Jalal, Jalal says that he has to respect his grandpa else his subjects wont ever believe in him.
