Who was that girl? That girl's name was Heera Bai. Aurangzeb fell in love with her at first sight.

Where did the two meet? Aurangzeb saw Hira Bai for the first time in Burhanpur, when he had gone to his aunt's house.

Heerabai, a Hindu, was given the title Zainabadi Mahal after being brought to his royal palace by Aurangzeb, despite objections from the people.

Aurangzeb's harem, Zainabadi Mahal, was renamed after his love for it, causing concern for his father Shah Jahan.

Aurangzeb was instructed by his father to take charge of the Mughal court in Deccan. However, upon reaching Aurangabad, a messenger informed him of Hirabai's death.
