Zee TV’s historical magnum opus ‘Jodha Akbar’ has completed 500 episodes. The series had premiered on the channel on June 18, 2013 and is produced by Ekta Kapoor under her banner Balaji Telefilms. The series airs Monday to Friday at 8 pm.

Based in the 16th century, the series began with Mughal emperor Akbar (played by Rajat Tokas) marrying a Rajput princess Jodha Bai (played by Paridhi Sharma) in what was a political marriage of convenience.

The series then traced the journey of how Jodha, with her power of love and humane qualities, softened the hard edges of the Mughal emperor’s fierce personality. It has followed how two strikingly different personalities fall in love eventually. The show currently focuses on their journey as parents of the adolescent Salim and his iconic love story with courtesan Anarkali and the evil forces trying to work against Emperor Akbar.

‘Jodha Akbar’ has become one of the most loved costume dramas currently on Indian television. The show will now see the entry of a new character, Laaboni (played by Melanie Pais), who with her black magic on Akbar will enter the Mughal palace to wreak havoc in their lives.

The cast and crew of the show celebrated the completion of 500 episodes by cutting cake on the sets.

Paridhi Sharma, who essays the role of Jodha, commented, “It feels great to have completed 500 episodes. It requires a lot of hard work, endurance, and ‘Jodha Akbar’ is a unique show with requirements quite different and sometimes trickier than your usual shows. But the show has managed to strike a chord with the audiences since its beginning and we all are very happy that we have reached this milestone. I am really grateful to all our fans for showering us with so much love. It’s been a beautiful journey and I hope we celebrate many more such milestones.”
