With so many new TV shows coming up every year on the small screen, pressure of making the shows successful and grabbing eyeballs is always a huge task for the makers of these TV shows. This task not only forces them to resort to cheap and shocking tactics but also create controversies. However, it looks like Ekta Kapoor's former show Jodha Akbar doesn't need all this as it has become synonyms with controversies. Let's take a look at the list of controversies that the show is related to.
Change of production house: The queen of daily soaps Ekta Kapoor, who launched the magnum opus Jodha Akbar with a lot of pomp and fanfare has been controversies' favourite ever since its execution. First the story line of the show was attacked, then there were reports that the protesters who were protesting against the show even demanded to pull the show off- air. Then there were rumours about the show's titled being changed and recently it was reported in certain sections of the media that Ekta has backed out the show as producer.
Protests against the show: The TV show first ran into controversy when the Rajput Kshatriya Akhil Bharatiya Chatariya Sabha protested saying that the serial is projecting false information about Jodha marrying Akbar to save her father’s kingdom. The serial saw protests from some other communities also who demanded that the show should be taken off-air and claimed that a person called 'Jodha' never existed. In fact, the topic became so bad that the protestors even burnt Ekta's effigy.
Lead actors Rajat Tokas and Paridhi sharma at logger heads: The soul of the TV show Jodha Akbar is said to be the chemistry between the lead actors- Paridhi Sharma aka Jodha and Rajat Tokas aka Akbar. Together they sizzle on the small screen with their chemistry. However, when the cameras turn off this lead pair is at loggerheads with each other and don’t even exchange pleasantries. Not many know that the actors don't see eye to eye off-screen and don't speak to each other in real life but they manage to shoot their scenes without any hassles. The reason behind this is that apparently Rajat Tokas feels that he is senior to Paridhi and thus likes staying away from her.

Mass walk out of 90 people from the Jodha Akbar sets: If all the other controversies were not enough, a mass walk out of 90 crew members from the sets of Jodha Akbar acted like a final nail in its coffin. This controversy acted as a fuel to the ongoing fire. The reason behind this mass walk out was apparently the rude attitude of the director of the show Santaram Verma. In fact, Ekta even commented at a press conference that she never threw anyone out and the crew members left the show because they did not want to work. She also said that she always supports what is right and she won’t throw 90 people out and put them out of jobs.
Jodha Akbar has managed to top the TVT charts: Jodha Akbar, which is considered as Ekta Kapoor's dream project started with poor numbers. The show was launched with a lot of expectation and was touted as the next big thing on the small screen but the historical saga never picked up. And this is where TV Czarina Ekta Kapoor's experience came in as help. The queen of daily soaps did everything possible and her magic worked. Today, despite all odds, Jodha Akbar is ruling millions of hearts with its captivating storyline and performance. After all the initial hiccups, Jodha Akbar is currently ruling the roost. These controversies have helped the show to create a new success story for itself
