Jodha Better Than Rukaiya Said Jalal!Rukaiya Begum wants to rest in complete darkness and silence, she hears quarrels outside and orders Hoshier to stop the noise. Hosier informs her that the women have completely gone mad and they are not ready to listen to anyone. Rukaiya discovers that two maids are fighting over their lover. Ruksana claims that she was betrothed to Mazhar in childhood, while Aziza claims that Mazhar and she truly love each other.
Rukaiya Begum orders that Mazhar should marry Ruksana, as the marriage was prepared by their parents in their childhood. Jodha opposes to this saying that, at that time Mazhar had no idea about love and relationship, now he should marry the girl he truly loves. Jodha appeals to Akbar to look after the matter.
Akbar hears all the statements. Akbar wants to give importance to everyone's emotion. He declares his verdict that the three will think over the matter for the next one month and then, Mazhar should marry whoever he wants. Now the queens of the harem complain against Rukaiya Begum saying that she seldom gives them the respect they deserve. They clearly declare that Jodha Begum is far more capable of managing the harem than Rukaiya Begum, as she has respect for humanity.
Akbar enjoys this fight among women. He keeps teasing Jodha. He also visits Rukaiya's chamber and tells her that she should never underestimate Jodha, as Jodha is a dexterous lady and can overpower her anytime. He enjoys the envy and anger in the faces of his Chief Queens.
