Jodha Akbar21st 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!
