Mumbai, Feb 8 : Jodha and Akbar, essayed by Paridhi Sharma and Rajat Tokas on television, will be seen as commoners in a coming episode which will require them to dress differently than what they usually wear in the period drama.
Akbar would want to take Jodha to a dargah to pray for her well being post her survival after the poisonous encounter with Benazir.
As a gesture of gratitude to the Almighty for the well being of Jodha, Akbar also wishes to build a palace for her in a town called 'Fatehpur Sikhri'. In order to reach the place, the two decide to dress as commoners and pass the town not as the rulers of the state but as common people, said a statement.
The actors are looking forward to this costume change.
"It was a welcome break for us to not wear our usual princely attire but to experiment with the look of a commoner. It's not half as heavy as the rich, ornate saris and jewellery that I generally wear as the queen," Paridhi said.
"In fact, it was a look I quite enjoyed getting into. Let's hope the audience enjoy and appreciate the simplicity of this avatar," she added.
