Ekta better pull her socks up and ask her team to do some serious research, otherwise, she might have to spend money for her lawyers to fight the several PILs for distorting the historical facts!
It is one thing to take some liberty for dramatization but it does not mean that any person can show anything in the name of creativity.
Already, Ekta had taken a dangerous route of showing "Jodha" Akbar's love story, even though there is no historical anecdote/ myth to substantiate the fact that Akbar had been hopelessly in love with one of his queens - "Jodha".
I am sure Ekta is going to show how Jodha will transform the bigot into a tolerant emperor.
But truth is, Akbar's decisions to bridge the gap between two communities could have been influenced by several factors instead of his "love" for Jodha.
Among his advisers, most of them were Rajput hindu and Akbar himself was an intelligent leader who knew the importance of having good political alliances and keeping his subjects happy for the prosperity of his empire.
Waiting to see how much importance Ekta gives to the characters of Todormal, Mansingh, Birbal who influenced Akbar's life greatly
Even if we keep aside the Jodha factor, Ekta could have shown the other incidents accurately. There are enough resources to know what were incidents happened before Bairam Khan was sent to Haj for the final time or of the cruel exploits of Aadham Khan. But Ekta's creatives were stretching their own imagination to depict the complicated relationship.
Can't Ekta at least stick to the facts where information is available?
Rajat is superb as Akbar
Paridhi is good too. It would have been better if Ekta could have concentrated in depicting Akbar's life and keeping Hirabai/Hadka or Jodha as part of his life. We could have seen more of Rajat
and it would have been easier for Balaji to stick to the facts.
Pata nehi Ekta mai ki dimaag ki batti kab jalegi?
