The Episode starts with Akbar saying you saved Salim and got rewarded for it, you got close to Jodha and also got Salim’s friendship, I was warned by my family about you, but I never paid heed, whatever you did, the reward is… you aren’t a maid in this palace now. Anarkali thinks Akbar may have agreed for Salim and my relation. Jodha thinks but Akbar has promised my brother, he doesn’t break promises. Maanbai thinks Akbar is making Anarkali his bahu, but he promised me, I won’t accept this insult. Akbar makes Anarkali wear a crown. Anarkali smiles. Akbar says Anarkali is now a dancer in this palace. Everyone gets shocked. Anarkali cries.
The women make her wear ghungroos. Akbar insults Anarkali. He says these ghungroos are your identity from today. Jodha thinks what did
you do, no one will see Anarkali will respect now, you have snatched her respect, it would be better that you took her life. Akbar says you will become dream of entire country, not just of one husband, you will be dancing wearing ghungroos, you will be entertaining everyone, you are not just of one man now, every lover will talk of your stories, you are the dancer of Indian now. Jodha cries for Anarkali. Akbar says your work will be just to dance, the country is yours and you are of the country. Anarkali cries and thinks of Salim’s words. Jhillan asks Akbar to pity Anarkali, she is very innocent. He justifies his decision. Jhillan begs him to forgive Anarkali.
Akbar says be thankful that I didn’t kill her, I have given her respect by making her a dancer, I declare that Anarkali will dance in Salim and Maanbai’s marriage, the journey won’t be tough to become a dancer, you have to burn to become gold, you have to bear pain, your journey begins now. Anarkali cries. Akbar says you will get money and luxuries, you will have maids in your service, you don’t get one thing, a husband, dancers don’t have husband in their fate. Anarkali goes. She sits in her room and says Salim will come, everything will be fine.
Jhillan says now these ghungroos is your fate, you were proud of your love, you got this reward, you are just a dancer now. Jhillain cries and says you can’t be someone’s wife, you are just a commodity now, its better you die. Anarkali says no, Salim will come and make everything fine. Jhillan angrily slaps her. Anarkali asks why are you crying, I won’t wear these ghungroos, I will talk to Salim. The women come to take Anarkali. Anarkali throws ghungroos and refuses to go. The women drag her. Anarkali gets hurt and dragged with bleeding feet. Jhillan cries. Khanam looks on shocked. Anarkali refuses to go. Khanam asks where are they taking Anarkali.
