Jodha Akbar completes 500 episodes

MUMBAI: Zee TV's historical magnum opus Jodha Akbar completes a glorious run of 500 episodes and the entire Mughal empire was seen rejoicing and celebrating this milestone on the sets of the show.  The show began with a ruthless Mughal emperor Akbar (played by Rajat Tokas) marrying a Rajput princess – Jodha Bai (played by Paridhi Sharma) and traced the journey of how Jodha, with her power of love and humane qualities, softens the hrd edges of the Mughal emperor's fierce personality. It has followed how two strikingly different personalities fall in love eventually. The show currently focuses on their journey as parents of the adolescent Salim and his iconic love story with courtesan Anarkali and the evil forces trying to work against Emperor Akbar.


The cast and crew of the show called in for a grand celebration on the sets.  A cake cutting ceremony followed by a lot of cake smashing saw the actors along with the crew of the show having a blast. It looked like young Salim, played by actor Ravi Bhatia was the favourite prey for all the smashing.


Ruling the hearts of its audiences, the show is one of the most loved costume dramas currently on Indian Television and has been running for over a year now.. With fans in India and abroad, the show has paved its way into the hearts of millions of fans all over the globe, making actors Paridhi Sharma (Jodha) and Rajat Tokas (Akbar) household names.


Sharing her excitement Paridhi said, “"It feels great to have completed 500 Episodes! It requires a lot of hard work, endurance and Jodha Akbar is a unique show with requirements quite different and sometimes trickier than your usual shows. But the show has managed to strike a chord with the audiences since it’s beginning and we all are very happy that we have reached this milestone.  I am really grateful to all our fans for showering us with so much love. It's been a beautiful journey and I hope we celebrate many more such milestones!”


With its gripping storyline, the show has managed to hold the interest of its audience right since its launch. The show will now see the entry of the devious Laaboni (played by Melanie Pais), who with her black magic on Akbar will enter the Mughal palace to wreak havoc in their lives.
