Badshah Begum Episode 3 Written Update and Review

Bakhtiyar has proposed to Jahan Ara, and Roshan Ara doesn’t like it one bit. I like how the two sisters confronted.

That khadma who had a “quiet” conversation with Qaisar, tries to kill Hakim Bi, but Hakim Bi attacks back, and even survives. Bhai waah!

We learn that Jahan Ara and Roshan Ara are Shah Alam’s daughters from the second “city” wife, and that the first Badshah Begum wasn’t too thrilled about this. And that’s when Pir Shahzeb started hating Shah Alam’s second family.
Jahan Ara suggests that Shah Alam should go back to Piranpur, and take back what’s rightfully theirs. Shaha Alam agrees.

Performances
