serious the crime might be. Akbar comes to meet Jodha with his
blood stained face and body. She abhors the sight and goes away
from him. Akbar leaves her room.
Soon Jodha feels that she should have consoled her husband
instead of avoiding him in this deepest crisis. She follows him
when he goes to the bathing hall. Akbar goes into the pool and
washes the blood. A maid informs that Atgah’s cremation will be
started soon. Akbar screams in agony.

death bed. He cannot stop crying. Hamida consoles him. After the
rites are complete, everyone goes to see Maha Manga, who has become
insane by the news of Adham’s death.

says that she does not believe the news of Adham’s death. Akbar
permits her to see Adham. Maham comes to her son, when Jawida is
crying beside his death bed.
Aziz becomes agitated over his father’s death. He vows that he
will not mercy Adham or his mother Maha Manga. He madly runs with
open sword to find and kill Adham Khan.
Aziz sees Maham and targets her with his weapon. Todarmal stops
him and says that Adham has been given death penalty by the
Emperor. Aziz thinks there is no need to kill Maham, as she is a
living dead after her son’s demise.
Maham sits beside her son’s bed and moans pathetically!
