Jodha Akbar Zee World Full story
Jodha Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a political marriage of convenience saga between a Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodha. But much more then that it’s the marriage of contrasts.
Akbar who had inherited his father, Humayan’s Mughal Empire at the age of 13, after his father’s death, had been brought up almost like a trained assassin by Bairam Khan, his fat her’s supreme commander. Hard-nosed, rough, tough and heartless… and priding himself on the each of those facets of his personality, the only thing Akbar had learnt was to expand his empire – at the cost of others lives – at the cost of emotions – at the cost of love – the word he was never familiar with.
Whilst Jodha, the daughter of Raja Bharmal, the Rajput King of Amer (one of the most affluent Rajput Kingdom’s of its time) valued each of those emotions – valued the life of even the birds and bees of her kingdom – she only hated the Mughal’s whom she felt were intruding upon her land, and wanted to oust them from Rajputana, along with their Emperor Jallaluddin, whom she hated with her heart. Jodha resented being reduced to a mere political pawn in this marriage of alliance, and Akbar’s biggest challenge now lies in winning the love of Jodhaa a love hidden deep below resentment and extreme prejudice.
Through a shrewd blend of diplomacy, intimidation and brute force, Akbar won the allegiance of the Rajputs. This allegiance was not universal.
But little did Akbar know that when he married Jodha, a fiery Rajput princess, in order to further strengthen his relations with the Rajputs, he would in turn be embarking upon a new journey the journey of true love – he would discover the heart which he never felt he had – and it would throb for its rightful lover – Jodha.
