Jodha Akbar 21st February written
episode: Jodha and Akbar have a tiff over the matter of forgiving
Sharifuddin. Akbar cannot understand why Jodha is speaking in
favour of Sharifuddin, when the person tried to bring an insult
upon her. Jodha says that she can pardon Sharifuddin because
whatever he did, he did it against her, not against her husband.
And now she feels the pain of Bakshi Banu, the pain of being
distant from husband, in time of pregnancy. So, she is putting
emphasis on setting Sharifuddin free.
Finally Bakshi Banu receives her husband as a gift from Akbar,
in the ceremony of pregnancy celebration. Akbar declares that he
has forgiven Sharifuddin on the ground that he has tried to do
something good for the Mughal Empire. It was he who exposed
Benazir’s truth to Jodha.
Adam Khan is pretty upset in this incident. Maha Manga advises
him to conceal his anger and behave tactfully. Begum Rukaiya fumes
to think that Akbar is being manipulated by Jodha. And Maha Manga
is always there to fuel Rukaiya’s envy.
Bakshi Banu and Sharifuddin jointly apologize to Jodha. Jodha
tells them that a wrong doer can be given a chance to redress his
mistake. But chance can come only once. Jodha cannot continue to
save them, if they do not change themselves. So, now it is their
responsibility to earn people’s trust, says Jodha.
Sharifuddin says that it is for Jodha he has been able to meet
his love again. When Bakshi Banu is overwhelmed with the though
that her husband loves her immensely, Sharifuddin in his mind,
actually indicates to Jodha as his ladylove!
