Ekta Kapoor under the Balaji Telefilms’ banner and directed by
Santram Varma. The series was premiered on June 18, 2013 and it is successfully running up to the present. You can watch Jodha Akbar serial on Zee TV channel every Monday to Friday evening.
The Jodha Akbar story revolves around the drama on the 16th century about the political marriage between Akbar, the emperor of Mughal and Jodha Bai, the princess of Rajput. It focuses on the way their marriage brings love to the extent that it can change the destiny of India. This Zee TV’s drama, Jodha Akbar also highlighted how the queen, ministers, courts and courtesans works and how they affect the love story of Jodha Bai and Akbar. Indian History has seen the emerging and end of many empire, many cultures, dictators and kings. But this is something big. Here we are also talking about the show that is portraying the most famous king of Indian Cinema, Muhammad Jalaluddin Akbar.
His heroics are known to ages. He was the king who was responsible for major growth on Indian culture at that time. This show takes us to the glorified past of India. It shows the battles of that time, their strategies, their arms, ammunition's and moreover it shows the relationship between the heavyweights, Mughals and Rajputs. It was often said that Jodha and Akbar’s marriage was a political decision but later this decision sparked love between them that changed the future of India.
The functioning of the judiciary is also beautifully shown in the show. The show highlights how King Akbar becomes ‘Akbar’ and breaks his cruel image. King Akbar was heartless and cruel because of the upbringing he got. He was brought up in the ambience of war and hatred. His father was killed when he was a child and from the childhood days he was trained like a warrior, both mentally and physically. He just learnt one thing- kills them or otherwise they kill you.
The only thing he wanted was to expand his empire at any cost. Love was a word that he never faced in his life. While Jodha, the Rajkumari was pretty emotional. She was not lion-hearted as King Akbar. She was so good at heart that she valued the lives of animals, birds and even bees of her kingdom. She was lovely and kind hearted. But she had a hard corner for the cruel Mughals. She even hated King Akbar. But tables turn and they get married; in due course of time, they fell in love deeply with each other. We are calling it epic drama. I don’t think any TV lover should afford to miss Jodha Akbar episodes.
The Jodha Akbar casts include
Rajat Tokas who played the role of Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar and
Paridhi Sharma who flawlessly played the role of Jodha Bai.
