Trouble knocked the doors of Balaji Telefilms' recently launched grand historical Jodha Akbar starring Rajat Tokas and Paridhi Sharma as the leads. The show has been going through controversies since the time it has begun even though it started well.

Some days after the telecast there started coming a ticker slogan which was added in the show saying, "All the scenes and matters shown in the show are not related to history and there is no intention to hurt any particular caste or group" but still it was not enough to keep the trouble at bay for those demanding to shut down the show. 

Even as there were protests by hundreds of Rajputs from various Rajput organisations blocked the Ambala - Hisar state highway, today it was representatives of the Rajput community in the city to voice their protest. They all gathered outside the office of Balaji Telefilms' in Mumbai demanding that the producers shut down the show immediately.

Our source says, "Few representatives from the Rajput society are opposing the content being shown in the show. According to them, there has been not a single woman belonging to the Rajput society named 'Jodha' in the history. The protestors also claim that the image of Rajput women is not being shown positively. The Rajput women in the show are being shown with disrespect."

The fate of the serial is in trouble as of now adds our source, "After all this chaos, there is no peace on the sets of Jodha Akbar and producer Ekta Kapoor may even take a decision to take it off air!"

Will a strong producer as Ekta take such a crucial decision within such a short notice? Only time will tell!

In entire history there is not a single personality so called Jodha.

First comment about Khatri community Ms Ekta Kapoor then only comment about others.

India still has a long way to go in terms of equality. Can't do anything without a protest. Get a life!! Funny how a movie was made...but when it comes to a serial..people are protesting. If you don't like it don't watch! I enjoy the acting by all the leads on the show..its a daily soap its NOT REAL! Its for entertainment!!

I t is ridiculous.there are proof that shows that king Bharmal married her daughter to Mughal emperor Akbar.even Jahangir also married rajput princes.Sahajahan was the son of one of Jahangir rajput why rajputs are against this serial.Its just a serial nothing else.and at the starting of he drama it is continuously announcing that this drama do not claim any historical fact.there are controversies with the name Jodha.actually Jodha name is related to Jahangir's rajput wife.
