In a land where the Emperor reigned supreme, only the selected few would have the power to influence his decisions. Prince Salim was first in line to inherit his father, Akbar’s throne. Already married to his first wife, Man Bai, Salim was on his way to strengthening the Mughal relations with Rajputana with his second marriage to Jagat Gosini.

But amidst the lavish palaces and plush lives of the Mughal royalty, a war was being fought from within. While the kings charted the political climate for the country, the queens ruled that throne at home. Mehrunissa, bright and charismatic, always dreamt of becoming queen and when the invitation came from the pasha begum herself, Mehrunissa joined her team of ladies in waiting.

Hereon begins the love story of Salim and Mehrunissa from their first meeting until their coronations as Jehangir and Nur-Jahan. The series interweaves various plot lines from the lives of many historical characters including Akbar, Ruqaiyya Begum, Abul Fazal and many others.

Based on the popular book ‘The Twentieth Wife’ by author Indu Sundaresan, Siyaasat is a story of politics, inter-personal conflicts, sabotage, grandeur, power and above all else, the love between Salim and Mehrunissa, who was Salim’s twentieth and final wife.
