Jodha Akbar's July 24th episode: The Englishmen show some sketches of the fire weapons designed by them; Akbar is impressed. He gives a condition that the weapons will not be sold to any other party, if the Mughal Empire decides to buy them. The traders agree. They think that the weapons will be never sold actually!
Akbar decides to return to Agra. The Englishmen request him to stay for one more day and go for hunting. He says he must go back, because the works of administration are being neglected. But the Englishmen keep insisting that he should stay, and the Emperor agrees.
The Englishmen serve wine to Akbar and his team. Akbar starts feeling weak from the next day. The interpreter informs the Englishmen that their plan has worked. The poison which they mixed into the wine, has started showing its reaction.
The Englishmen say that the poison will damage the body of the Emperor and kill him after three weeks. And the most important thing is that it will look like a natural death. They cheer up for their success.
Rukaiya becomes extremely envious of the elevation in Jodha’s status. She decides to ruin the spice business which is the key source of Jodha’s power. In the darkness of night, she sets the spice store ablaze with a big lamp.
Jodha tells King Todarmal that the accidents one after another, the spices getting wet by rainwater and the store catching fire, cannot be a mere coincidence. She doubts that someone must have damaged the spices intentionally.
Todarmal and Rahim inform Jodha that it is some insider who has set the store on fire, as the circumstantial evidences indicate. Jodha shares the fact with Hamida. Hamida tells her to stay alert, because enemies often behave like friends!
So, the Emperor is poisoned by the Englishmen and Rukaiya is desperate to finish Jodha. Will this love story come to an end soon?
