Being the most intelligent minister out of the nine jewels (navratna) in Akbar’s court, Birbal advises him.
3. Anita-Vibuti Mishra's funny fights
By quarrelling is how Anita and Vibuti Narayan Mishra pass their time. The couple is essayed by Saumya Tandon and Aasif Sheikh respectively.

He addresses Anita as “darling” time and again, to make her quit arguing.

Often, Birbal saves Akbar from losing face in front of Rani Saheba.

Extremely competitive with one another, they try to win the ladies’ hearts, but of their neighbour’s wife, not their own.
