Jodha Akbar13th January written Episode: Mirza and Shivani meet each other where wall-art works are going on. As Tejwant is engraving beautiful designs on the wall, Mirza praises Tejwant’s craft with an open heart. He promises Shivani that, in their room, he will arrange beautiful wall murals for her, as he has come to know that she likes it. Maha Manga watches them secretly.
Tejwant comes to know that Mirza and Shivani are getting married on the very next day. Shivani secretly meets Tejwant just after Mirza leaves and they plan to flee before the marriage. Maha Manga sees the two lovers, passionately embracing each other. She is delighted to know that Shivani is going to mar the honour of her family, specially of her sister Jodha, in front of the Mughals.
Before the pre-marriage ceremony, the ladies of the two royal families exchange gifts. Akbar’s mother gives a special Mughal dress to Jodha. On the pre-marriage occasion Jodha wears it and looks exceptionally beautiful. She fascinates Akbar with this new look. Mallika-e-Azam is immensely pleased to see Jodha in this attire and she blesses her.
Begum Rukaiya thinks that Jodha has worn this Mughal attire to impress Akbar, while Jodha has actually done this to honour her mother-in-law. Maha Manga uses this opportunity and provokes Begum Rukaiya to do something, to stop Jodha from getting close to Akbar.
Akbar meets Jodha after the occasion and gives her compliments for the new look. He says that Jodha’s acts do not reflect her mind. He thinks that when she tries to impress Akbar, she pretends not to do so. Jodha does not give any specific answer to this.
