Stunning Jodha in Nidhi Yasha’s Designs
Paridhi Sharma has won millions of hearts with her portrayal of Queen Jodha. Jodha Akbar is an Indian historical series airing on Zee. The show is produced by very popular Ekta Kapoor under Balaji banner. Rajat Tokas is playing opposite to Paridhi as Akbar, and I personally feel the chemistry between the two is the popular element of the show.
Jodha Akbar is a true story of a Mughal emperor Akbar and Rajput Princess Jodha Bai. He married a Hindu princess in order to expand his Mughal empire. It is a story of true love, a dutiful wife and their journey in life, later also how he acquires the Akbar title.
