Mahamanga meets Benazeer and wants to know about the conversation between Benazeer and Jodha. She praises Benazeer's intelligence but warns her about her talkative nature. She utters that, those who win, think and plan much, but talk little.
In a cold night, Jodha Begum is sitting in the open terrace. Her face shows that she is in a pensive mood. Her mind is unstable like the wind of the night. Salima Begum, the soft and caring lady, tries to comfort Jodha. Jodha decently asks to leave her alone.
Jalal intentionally calls Benazeer to the open terrace where Jodha is present, to draw Jodha's attention. Benazeer notices that as usual, the emperor is praising her, just to arouse disgust in Jodha Begum.
The situation becomes highly dramatic when Benazeer intentionally falls into the pond to draw Jalal's attention. Naturally, the emperor rescues her without any delay and tries to comfort her. Benazeer continues the drama. In the bath hall she admits to Zakira that for the first time she is jealous of a woman, that is Jodha Begum.
In the night, Jalal and Jodha, lying alone in their beds in different chambers, think about each other. Both feel pain and anguish because of the insults they have caused to each other.
