Jodha Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a political marriage of convenience saga between a Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. But much more then that it's the marriage of contrasts.

Jallaludin Mohommad (Akbar) who had inherited his father, Humayan's Mughal Empire at the age of 13, after his father's death, had been brought up almost like a trained assassin by Bairam Khan, his father's supreme commander. Hard-nosed, rough, tough and heartless... and priding himself on the each of those facets of his personality, the only thing Akbar had learnt was to expand his empire - at the cost of others lives - at the cost of emotions - at the cost of love - the word he was never familiar with.

Whilst Jodha, the daughter of Raja Bharmal, the Rajput King of Amer (one of the most affluent Rajput Kingdom's of its time) valued each of those emotions - valued the life of even the birds and bees of her kingdom - she only hated the Mughal's whom she felt were intruding upon her land, and wanted to oust them from Rajputana, along with their Emperor Jallaluddin, whom she hated with her heart.

Little did Akbar know at the time of his marriage to Jodha, the fiery Rajput princess, in order to expand his empire into Rajputana, the land of the Valiant Rajputs, he would in turn be embarking upon a new journey - the journey of true love - he would discover the heart which he never felt he had - and it would throb for its rightful lover - Jodha.

Rajat Tokas as Akbar

Uneducated, unrefined.. he was instilled by Bairam Khan, Humayun's commando to rule ruthlessly. He was ignorant about love & passion and unknown from care & concern. He eventually fell in love with Jodhaa, who transformed him into a compassionate human being. 'PRIDE' & 'VICTORY' overpowered his personality.

Paridhi Sharma as Jodhaa

Jodhaa was from the royal family of Rajputs in Amer. A great singer, she was trained by her brother in war skills. Jodhaa stood for her sense of justice and self-respect. 'BRAVERY' & 'LOVE' were her valued jewels

Ashvini Kalsekar as Maha Manga

A sharp, astute, selfish woman who governed the life of Akbar, without whose permission no one was allowed inside the main coterie of the empire. 'DEFACTO RULER' of the kingdom. Ace politician who envisaged a grand role for her son, Adham Khan.

Chetan Hansraj as Adham Khan

Physically stronger but always put down in comparison with Akbar. Tried hard to prove himself but failed against his mother's supremacy. Hatred prevailed and he joined hands with Sharfuddin to get his position as a Wazir.
