Even if Benazir was a negative character in Ekta Kapoor’s Jodha Akbar, she managed to bring a positive change in the couple’s lives. No wonder how much the two constantly tried to ignore their feelings or listening to their inner emotion, Benazir unknowingly brought the estranged couple together. While, the presence of Benazir made Jodha realize her love for Akbar, her dearth is helping Akbar in understanding his love for Jodha Begum.
On the other hand, Ruqqaiya Begum has realized her mistake, wondering why she listened to the old woman Maham Anga who constantly tried to spoil Jodha’s image. Maham, on the other hand is in shock to know Benazir’s reality because she was the one who actually trusted the vish kanya. While, Maham made everybody fool, this is the first time where she was made a fool. Her silence is however tricky. You never know when and how the cunning lady plans her next step. But for a change, from the spectator’s view the silent Maham without any conspiracy in her head looks so strange. Still, we do not know for how long this silence will exist.
Nevertheless, one thing is very clear now – Nobody will ever doubt Jodha Begum’s dedication towards Akbar and the entire Moghul parivar. The way she risked her life to save her husband only reflected her love, commitment and loyalty towards Akbar.
However, will Jodha Begum be able to open her eyes now that the serpent’s venom has reached each and every corner of her body? Moreover since none of the medicines seem to show its effect on Jodha, will Akbar’s dua work on his Rajput Begum?
