Jodha Akbar

Jodha Akbar is an Indian Historical drama scheduled for airing by Zee TV. The series is slotted for a premiere on June 18, 2013 and air Monday through Friday. The show is produced by TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms. It stars Rajat Tokas and Paridhi Sharma in lead roles.

Plot summary

Jodha Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a political marriage of convenience between a Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodha.
It is said that Ekta Kapoor was influenced by the 2008 big screen movie, Jodhaa Akbar, directed by Bollywood's Ashutosh Gowariker to have launched this TV extravaganza.


“Our plan is to launch the show on a majestic scale as it is an epic love saga, from a different era", says Tanushree Dasgupta, creative director, Balaji Telefilms. She further adds, "Such larger-than-life and grand love stories are always well-accepted by family audiences".
The female protagonist of the TV serial, Paridhi Sharma, a management graduate, who made her debut in a Bollywood film called "Ruk Jaana Nahin", considers this to be a dream role.
