Menavati is shown doing all the preparations for the wedding.The grandmother gets to know that it was Menavati who had sent those letters to Jodha and Suryabaan.She verfies,but doesn’t ask why.
Jalal is shown entering Ruqaiya’s chamber.He was impatiently waiting for her,but she was nowhere to be seen.He is seen walking around the chamber,he finally picks up some beverage for himself and then lyes down on the bed.
*He was seen in the light blue sherwaani.His hair the usual fluffy “hawaa mein udta jaaye” thingy isssh!this handsome munda! *
After sometimes Ruqaiya arrives with a plate of food and some beverages in her hand.
She smiles at Jalal as she enters.She then adds some toppings to the beverages.
Meanwhile,Jalal questions her about her whereabouts in a very ‘nok-jhok’ kinda tone *It was so cute! *
He tells her he had been waitinf for her sicne what seemed like eternity
Ruqaiya simply giggles it off.She looks up at him,only to see his feet on the bed.
She tells him,that no matter how great a baadshah he is,he still behaves like a ‘bandar’.
Like how all lovers have their sweet silly fights,Jalal and Ruqaiya have a fight too.* adorable they looked <3 *
She then orders him to keep his foot down,since he was wearing his shoes in a 'singsong' tone.Jalal looks at her for a while,then,so as to tease her,he rubs his foot repeatedly (along with the shoe) against the bedsheet. He was amused looking at her,she seemed irritated.
Both of them keep fighting like how they did when they were kids.
The scene signified that their relationship was strong,since they had known each other since childhood.
They both then fall on the bed giggling (Their heads opposite to each other,jalal facing west,ruqaiya north :p ahem )
Jalal says that he had known her all his life,she was so tiny back then and now she was all 'javaan'.
Ruqaiya agrees and describes to him,they in some ways,they both were very much similar.
If he was the 'shahenshah',she was 'mallika'.If he controls the 'siyasat',she controls the internal politics of the 'harem'. Since all the begums kept fighting over who is supreme.She had to maintain that Rquaiya was the shahenshah's favourite wife.
Jalal's eyes turn softer and he pulls her close,he tells her that she was his 'sabse chaheeti begum','meri bachpan ki dost',she was HIS RUQAIYA.
He then teases by calling her by her petname,with which she was addressed in her childhood.
He holds her chin and repeatedly chants her petname 'gatti'.
Ruqaiya frowns and says that only he could call her by that name.Jalal says ofcourse,he was her husband afterall.
Meanwhile,Maham Anga secretly enters the chamber,Ruqaiya notices someone and then throws a show.She yells and asks her'how dare she enter?".
Ruqaiya didn't know who it was though.
Jalal asks her what happened,to which she says,some maid must have come.
They then lie down again.
precap-Jodha gets to know that it was Menavati,who had sent those letters.
