Jodha Akbar 1st May written episode: Maha Manga comes to meet Akbar. The securityman tells her that Akbar wants to stay alone. When she insists further, the guard sends her message to Akbar, who refuses to meet her outright. He even does not see her.
Hamida tells Salima that when she went to the deserted place with Maha Manga, she believed that Maha Mnaga goes there for praying in solitariness. Now she thinks that there must be some other secret. Hamida declines meeting Akbar as her presence can remind him of his Badi Ammi.
Akbar comes to Hamida. She counsels him for this crisis. She reminds him that Maha Manga has milked him and loved him more than her own child Adam. But at the same time she has committed a crime. So Akbar should behave like an Emperor and should take a balanced decision. Akbar tells Hamida that Maha Manga has accused an innocent person of a dirty crime like adultery. This is enough to forget all her favours to him, thinks Akbar.
Resham keeps crying for Maha Manga. She tells Resham that in the court room Akbar will give a test of his judgement. Maham is waiting to see what he values more—her loyalty on many occasions or her treachery on a single occasion.
Rukaiya arranges Akbar’s favourite games and wine in her room, as she thinks that Akbar will come to her, to find comfort. She comes to know that Akbar has gone to Jodha’s room to spend the night. She vandalizes the room in utter disgust and pain.
Hamida sends Jodha’s portrait to Akbar, which he keeps in front of his eyes. In Jodha’s room Akbar asks Moti Bai whether she knew about Jodha’s meeting with Sujhamal. Moti begs pardon for not being able to inform Akbar, as she was bound by her words to Jodha. She assures him that Jodha will come back very soon.
