Location: Meher’s residence
Ranvir gets the newspapers and asks meher why was this needed to be done, as he was handling things in his own style. Meher says that this was needed, as what if shanti’s family didnt accept the marriage, and then their plan would fail, or what if survi talked shanti out of this marriage. she says that now survi wont be able to do anything and would have to sign the divorce papers. he leaves tensedly. meher comments that she doesnt know whats wrong with ranvir suddenly. she then tells tai that this too was a brilliant one. tai says that she wants her benefit only, as her mother would have done the same too. meher says that she isnt her mother, and that she is thankful for what she is doing for her. she then leaves. tai meanwhile eyes the newspapers. bindu comes, and says that her ideas, voiced by meher are enacted by ranvir, but it can prove very dangerous, as ranvir is beginning to resent it. Bindu asks tai if she even realises how kartik would go after her, if he as much as gets to know, that its was tai’s plan to marry shanti and then leave her stranded. tai says thats why she is impressing meher, as she shall save her from kartik’s ire. tai says that she is just waiting for meher to give her the place of a mother, then she shall set everything to its place. the screen freezes on tai’s face.
Precap: Kartik and survi come to meher’s place and in front of her and ranvir, he burns all the newspapers, and then says that his plan has failed. He asks what does he think, whether he would be able to connivingly deceive the innocent shanti, and get his way, but actually its not true, and that she has seen through his deception, and understood his real game, oblivious to the fact, that on the road, shanti takes out the vermillion and dons her forehead with it. he says that he has gone to the exam center and taken a grip back on her life. but he doesnt realise that shanti is actually still lured by his deception, and is walking listlessly on the road, without seeing that a truck is approaching, dangerously close.
