Jodha Akbar July 13th episode: Akbar refuses to accept Salim’s love for Anarkali, due to her social status. Salim agrees to marry Man Bai. The Emperor arranges a grand celebration on this occasion. Rukaiya thinks she will not let the matter end so easily. She orders Anarkali to perform in the program.
Anarkali’s presence creates an embarrassment in the program, still she performs with a smiling face and others pretend that they are enjoying it. Rukaiya cleverly throws a piece of glass on the floor so that it hurts the dancer’s feet.
Anarkali’s feet bleed; Salim cannot hold himself anymore. He rushes to the dance floor and takes care of Anarkali. Akbar says that Salim is a generous prince who even cares for a court dancer, but Salim’s genuine concern for the dancer irks him.
Salim comes to see Anarkali in her house. Daniyal follows him; he sees Salim nursing and caressing Anarkali. He thinks that Salim is cheating on Man Bai and he would not let this happen.
Anarkali forbids Salim to meet her again, but Salim reminds her of the promise that she would never stop him from meeting her, if he agrees to marry Man Bai. Their love story is destined to meet a sad ending and they have to bear the pain, says Anarkali.
Rukaiya cheers up to see that she has successfully created a disorder. Akbar calls her privately and says that he is well aware of her shrewd plans. He slams her for presenting Anarkali in the court. Rukaiya becomes pale in fear. He warns her not to repeat such things again.
