Razia Sultan 26 March 2023: Mirza gets Razia arrested. She is guilty in my eyes. Razia tries to make him understand that Shah Turkan is lying. My love is pious. I dint cheat you. The soldiers drag her away. Shah Turkan walks forward towards Mirza. I had not told you this truth today but I had to. I know it that you are good enough to be a Sultan. I don’t doubt your capabilities at all. I can help you in taking care of Delhi. Mirza replies that he has finally opened his eyes in love. It doesn’t mean that I will close my eyes towards my enemies too. You brought Yakut here. You plotted. You will help me? I don’t need a Rakassa and her son to rule Delhi. He orders the soldiers to keep Shah Turkan and her son to a dark cell.
They should live in that dark for forever. Shah Turkan begs for his mercy but in vain.Razia is chained. Shamshad rushes to her side. Razia is your Sultan. She should not be treated this way. Mirza calls her guilty. She should be taken to Bhatinda. Shamshad Begum requests him not to be so stone hearted to her. MIrza stays put. Shamshad Begum decides to go with Razia. Soldiers take a chained Razia with them while Mirza sits on his horse. Razia tells Mirza that he is making a mistake. He will regret it when he will learn the truth. He does not think so. You cheated me for Yakut. I will find him from wherever he is. I will bring his head to you in gift. Mirza takes Razia with her.
Razia is walking bare foot around town. Her Ammi stops her palanquin as she notices Razia’s condition. She holds her when Razia feels dizzy. I will walk bare foot with her. Mirza replies that they all are his slaves. You cannot give me orders but you have to abide by mine. It will be good if you sit in the palanquin. Shamshad Begum accepts it that she is his convict but he cannot stop her from supporting her loved ones. If you think I am revolting against you then you can kill me. You cannot force me to be away from Razia. She walks bare foot with her granddaughter. They both support each other as their feet get bloodied due to all the walking. Mirza stops them. He requests Razia’s Ammi to sit in the palanquin. She suggests him not to be so sentimental for the convicts.
He says I am feeling sad for you as you are hurt. She refuses to leave her granddaughter’s side. I wont sit in the palanquin without her. Mirza announces that the troops should stop here for the night as it is evening.Shamshad Begum nurses Razia’s wounds. You have blisters in both your feet. I don’t know how you handle all this. She replies that this has become a part of her life. Shamshad is tearful to think that these feet were to have mehndi today but look at the fate! She leaves.
Rukn-ud-din is scared of the dark. No one will hear us here. We will die this way. Shah Turkan assures him that she will find a way. There are two stones inside the cell. She lights fire. Darkness cannot stand in front of light. We have been through so many problems together. This too shall pass. Trust me.Mirza asks his commander to send a message to Tavrez Khan (who is looking after Delhi).
Take care of Nasir and Shazia. They should not face any problem. Shamshad Begum comes to talk to Mirza alone. The commander leaves. Shamshad Begum says I was glad to know that you felt bad to see me in pain. The pain in your eyes told me that there is still something left between them. It sure isn’t like it was in the past but it isn’t over. It shows that your love isn’t finished but it is clouded by doubts. Break those walls. I trust Razia completely. She has not loved anyone other than Mirza till date and neither will she do it. You know it better. It happens. Love takes tests. I believe that you will not fail this test. Razia tells her Nani jaan not to beg for her from anyone. We are from the royal blood. We have lived with proud and will die so only.
We aren’t convicts to look down especially before those who have been raised on our Abbu’s pittance! Mirza gets angry. Shamshad Begum tries to quieten Razia but she continues talking. My would be husband has caught me thinking that I have killed his mother. If he thinks so then be it. He thinks that I love not him but Yakut. I will turn this doubt into truth. I agree that I was playing with your heart. I love Yakut! Mirza holds her chin. Don’t test my patience. You made fun of my love. What did you just say? You love Yakut? Razia repeats it. I love him. I have cheated you. What punishment will you decide for this cheater killer? Shamshad Begum orders the soldiers to take Razia away.
Razia continues to repeat it that she loves Yakut. You can kill me if you want to but I will still say the same thing. The soldiers lock Razia in a cell. Mirza is angry.The soldiers lock Razia in a cell. Mirza stands outside. They both look at each other. Mirza asks Razia once again. why did you cheat me? what was missing in my love that you fell for that Yakut? She replies that he would have understood it if he was a man. Whenever Yakut pulls me to him, it feels as if all the happiness of the world is in his arms. It gives me immense peace when he touches my hairs. Mirza imagines them together. His anger is quite visible on his face. Razia continues. Touching my lips with his hands as if they are rose petals! Mirza tells her to be quiet. He pushes open the cell with his foot and holds her by her neck.
I will kill him in such a way that he will beg for mercy. She says I am your culprit. What is that poor guy’s fault? Kill me. I wont regret it. Yakut has taught me what true love is! He steps back. He locks the cell once again and leaves.Yakut is staying in a sarai. His head is covered with a blanket. He thinks of Razia and all the times that they have spent together. A man remarks that he looks like he is in love. Yakut advises him to mind his business. Another man sits down next to him. He too is drunk. How much hatred is inside you? Love has not given anyone anything but hatred. Look at Mirza and Razia. Everyone was giving their example. Mirza has taken over Delhi and dethroned Razia. People feel bad for her.
She was going to become a Sultan but she is in Mirza’s prison now. She was chained like a convict and taken to Bhatinda on foot by Mirza! Yakut gets up. He thinks that Sultana cannot be treated like this till he is there. I am coming to free you from Mirza’s detention.Shazia apologizes to her father. I have given up. Everything is finished. Now I will not be able to live this life. I am coming to you. She is about to slit her wrist but doesn’t have that much courage. Shame on me! I don’t have strength to even fight with life or kill myself. I am good for nothing. Yakut comes there through her window. Shazia tells him to leave. Everything is finished. He reasons that he has come to help her here. Come to Bhatinda with me so we can free Sultana from Mirza. Shazia blames him for Razia’s condition.
You created misunderstandings between them. Their love is in problem only because of you. Go away. He accepts his mistake. But it was Mirza’s decision to arrest Sultana and take over Delhi. The reason behind Mirza doing so is clear in front of everyone. This is the last chance to help Sultana. Let us die bravely if we have to. Atleast we will help someone. She nods.Shah Turkan and Rukn-ud-din are still in that dark cell. Rukn-ud-din is fed up of staying there. I only hope we get out of here alive. They hear the sound of footsteps. Shah Turkan is surprised to see Yakut there. Finally you thought of me. He says I came to tell you that you should start counting your days. I will find Sultana and free her. I will help her get her rights back. When she is here she will certainly punish you.
By helping Sultana maybe God will forgive my sins. Rukn-ud-din scolds him. I knew one day you will cheat us. His mother stops him from getting into a fight with Yakut. Shah Tukran appreciates his idea. Love changes people. Do you know what Razia will think of you when she finds out that you had killed Mirza’s Ammi huzur? Will she forgive you? Will she come into your arms if she finds out that it was you who insulted her and Mirza’s love in front of the whole world? She will hate you! Yakut affirms it. You are forgetting it that it is only you who knows this other than me. No one else but you can tell her of all the people. You both are not going to live for long anyways. If death does not come automatically to you then I promise you, I will make it easy for you.
This secret will bury for forever then. I am leaving for now. I had come to alert you not to act smart or they will lose their life soon. Shah Turkan begs for apology but he walks away.Mirza comes to confirm with Razia if she was speaking the truth when she spoke about Yakut or if she said all that in anger. Razia replies that it doesn’t matter now what truth or lie is. You have already accepted what you want to. I don’t want to keep any relation with a man like you. He wants to punish her for her sins. I promise you I will not even think before giving you the worst punishment. Razia suggests him to get her killed. I will keep reminding you of my cheating till I am alive. Mirza wants to make sure she does not die slow death. Your cheating will not let you live and I will not let you die. He announces his wedding with Razia.
She refuses it but he is in no mood to consider it. She insists that she has cheated him. He wants to punish her by marrying her. You will curse yourself whenever you will see me. This relation, which is based on hatred, will always give you hatred. What can be the worst punishment for you than this? You will get hatred and insult from the man whom you hate most! Congratulations on the wedding Razia Sultana!
