Mahamanga's 'dasi', Resham Khan informs Jodha that Mahamanga has stopped eating and is going through a lot of pain. Resham feels that Mahamanga is going through her last stage of life and asks Jodha to do something about it. Meanwhile, the 'kazis' help in selecting a name for Bakshi Banu's baby and finally Shareef-ud-din comes up with the name for his daughter. Later, Rukaiyya begum orders for a 'Diwan-e-khaas' to be held and there she asks Akbar to fulfil her one wish and asks him for Jodha's baby. Hearing her, Jodha and others get shocked. Akbar denies any possibility of giving her the baby and hearing him, Rukaiyya begum begins to weep and leaves the 'diwan-e-khaas'.
Jodha Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a political marriage of convenience saga between a Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. But much more then that it's the marriage of contrasts.
