Jodha Akbar December 20th Episode Written Update: Sangeetacharya Pandit Ramtanu visits Mughal Darwar and Jalal offers him precious gifts. To everyone's surprise, Acharya refuses the gifts, saying that an artist can value art and things related to art only, material gifts can never please him. When Jodha begum gives him a golden locket shaped as an '‘Om', he readily accepts it. When Jalal asks for explanation, the artist says that the gold means nothing to him, but the 'Om' is related to Lord Shiva. So, it is immensely precious for him.
Ramtanu Shastri even refuses to sing for the emperor. He says that an emperor can win countries and states, but cannot win the entity and mood of an artist. His courage and reserve as an artist, astonishes everyone. It is enchanting that a true artist respects art over everything, even over the mightiest emperor of India!
In the bath hall, Jodha talks about the behaviour of Jalal to her attendant and friend Moti. Moti says that Jalal is not so heartless as Jodha thinks. She also says that Jodha is giving so much of importance to the incidents because she has started loving the Emperor. On the other hand, Maha Manga gets enthusiastic about the fact that Benazeer is gradually capturing the heart of Jalal.
Benazeer meets Jodha and asks for her pardon for wearing her dress. She wants to return it, but Jodha asks her to keep the same with her. Benazeer tries to irritate Jodha indicating that Jalal is getting more and more attracted to her and meeting her regularly. Jodha leaves the place saying that Benazeer is overestimating herself. The difference between the nature of the two women, the princess and the seductress, becomes clear by this conversation.
Mahamanga cries for her son Adam Khan, who is in prison. A suffering mother comes out, breaking the shield of a shrewd and conspiring woman, the 'Wazire Aliah of the Mughal Empire'. The emperor notices this and gives her permission to meet her son, whenever she wishes.
