Anarkali says I can give my life for you. Jodha says that’s easy, what I m going to ask you will be tough, Akbar has tried hard to unite the two provinces. Anarkali says I know this, why are you saying this to me.
Jodha says I just want to tell you, Salim and Maanbai should get married, Akbar wants to make the relations of both states stronger. Jodha says I m Salim’s mum, I m asking you for my son, India’s
tomorrow, return Salim to me, your heart will break, else this country will break. Anarkali says I m just a maid. Jodha says you are Salim’s love, his heart and heartbeat. Anarkali says I don’t want this country or the throne, I just want…
Jodha says Salim. Maanbai comes to Salim. He asks did you get free now, I was making your portrait. She says I know. He says its not right to hear anyone’s talk. She says this can’t hide from me, you are making portrait of the one you are marrying. He says you know this, are you happy. She says a lot, I want to see it. Jodha says Salim isn’t Salim, he is a prince, future king, you will be writing this country’s fate, I m scared if Salim knows this, he will create a storm, this love will turn into rebel, the two states will turn into enemies and have a battle. Anarkali thinks Salim doesn’t know that his marriage is happening with Maanbai, then how did Maanbai get that kamarbandh. She cries.

She thinks how will I ask Salim to leave from my life. Salim meets her and says I want to show you something, come with me. He takes her and asks her to see the portrait. He praises her. He says I always fall in love with you. He asks how did you like it. She says its beautiful. He says my every hope and dream is with you, our dreams are getting fulfilled.
