Although Akbar does not interfere with the 'Haram', he decides to take this case. Ruksana, Mazhar and Aziza put forward their plea to their King. The king takes his decision and rejects the engagement. When he asks other Begums about their opinions, others begin to complain about Rukaiyaa and her injustice in the Haram. But Jodha supports Rukaiyaa and Akbar does not take any strict action against Rukaiyaa. Jodha discusses the matter with Akbar. Salima begum also agrees that Jodha would be a better person to handle the Haram. Rukaiyaa finds out this and is furious with Salima. Akbar warns Rukaiyaa to not think of her rivals as weak especially if the rival is Jodha.
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.
