Jodha Akbar's Salim (Ravi Bhatia) has been having a tough time feeling helpless against everything that is happening in his life. Salim has been using drugs to cope and has managed to escape Akbar's (Rajat Tokas) eyes until now thanks to Jodha (Paridhi Sharma) and Rukhaiya (Lavina Tandon), but the upcoming episode will have Salim getting caught and facing Akbar's wrath. Akbar will be seen slapping him for doing it.
Having fallen in love with Anarkali even when trying his best not to, Salim is head over heels for her. But with Akbar announcing his engagement to Man Bhai, Salim is left with no choice in pursuing his heart. Salim succumbs to drugs to find solace.
Jodha and Rukhaiya come to know about this but knowing Akbar and how he might react to it, they try their best to hide the fact from him. They give excuses for Salim's behaviour. But in time Akbar finds out what Salim is up to and will be seen slapping him in anger.
Akbar, who has been changing of late with bad influence, is a lot different from what he was before. With his power getting to him, he is starting to lose control of his humane side. In such a state his reaction to finding out his son using drugs brings out the worse in him.
Will Akbar stop at slapping Salim or will he give him a severe punishment than this? Will Jodha be able to calm Akbar down? Let's wait and watch, Jodha Akbar, to see how things turn out on the show.
