Born in 1542 as a Hindu Rajput princess Jodhaa was offered in marriage to third Mughal Emperor Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Akbar by her father, Raja Bharmal of Amber. The wedding, held in Sambhar, was a political one and served as a sign of submission of her father to the Mughals. Her marriage to Akbar led to a gradual shift in the latter's religious and social policies. She is widely regarded in modern Indian historiography as exemplifying both Akbar's and the Mughals' tolerance of religious differences and their inclusive policies within an expanding multi-ethnic and multi-religious empire. She was the mother of Akbar's eldest surviving son and eventual successor, Jahangir. Though she remained a Hindu, the new mother was subsequently honoured with the title Mariam-uz-Zamani ("Mary of the Age"). अबNoरMal pays tribute to this celebration of love set in the 16th century in its own unique फilmy नautanki way for posterity!
