In the previous episode of Jodha Akbar, we saw a grand feats being organized in honour of Prince Salim to mark his return to the palace. Rukaiya gets even more determined to get control of Salim’s life by playing evil tricks. She mixes double dosage of opium in Salim’s milk which makes him dizzy. Salima Begum catches hold of Rukaiya as she notices Salim behaving weirdly. The Begums enter into a scuffle as Salima alleges Rukaiya for drugging Salim. Rukaiya, in turn, passes the buck on Salima, and blames her for being the main culprit. Salima Begum shouts at Rukaiya for her evil job and tells her that she would report the matter to Jalal without wasting a moment.
