Akbar tells Hamida Begum that he has so many faithful attendants. So many people obey him, follow him and pray for his long life, but still he feels so lonely. Hamida says that the person who sits on the throne, becomes alone, as no one can be equal to him in status.
This solitude will only go, when Akbar will get his soul-mate—who will love him because he is her husband, not because he is the Emperor. She will love Akbar, the person, not the Emperor.
As usual Akbar repeats that he has no heart, so there is no question of getting a soul-mate. His mother says that there will be someone who will find out his heart and will make him feel the essence of love.
