Dhruv changes Sonam’s bandage and asks how was mummy’s pampering today. She asks his mummy or her mummy and starts commentary. He drapes bandage around her mouth and laughs that is looking like mummy. Their nok jhok starts. She covers him with clothes. Sonia walks in and laughs seeing that. Dhruv and Sonam get engrasped into each other’s eyes. Serial’s title track plays in the background…
Shashikant gets romantic with Nutan and says he is very happy with her today and will buy whatever jewelry or clothes she likes after lockdown. She says she doesn’t need anything, he blackmailed her with video; if video had been out, Sheetal Bua would have been in trouble, she just saved this family’s dignity and is worried for her family and not like him; she hates Sonam and will never accept her as bahu. Shashikant warns her to mend her ways and don’t try to break Sonam and Dhruv’s bonding, he can go to any extent for this family’s dignity, etc. Bua walks in. He warns even her to stop brainwashing Nutan, else he will not spare even her and walks away. Bua asks Nutan what happened to bhaiya. Nutan says her bhaiya came to know that she crosslegged Sonam and made her fall. Bua gets tensed and says that is why he is angry. She brainwashes Nutan to take control in her hands for the betterment of this house and not bother about bhaiya, she should somehow make sure that Sonam and her family leave this house after lockdown. Nutan agrees.
Shashikant is busy getting head masage from Batasa when Subhadra walks in and says she needs to talk regarding Nutan. Shashikant sends Batasa away. Subhadra says she knows he convinced Nutan to pamper Sonam today, but she wants Nutan to accept Sonam by heart. Shashikant says he knows Pratham doesn’t like Dhruv, even he wants Pratham to accept Dhruv by heart. He says we both know that children’s happiness is important, so we are trying our best for this marriage, he will manage Nutan and she need not worry.
Dhruv enjoys cigarette on terrace. Sonam walks to him. He hides cigarette and controls smoke in his mouth. She senses smell and hits his stomach, he blows out smoke and says he was craving for cig, so he had a few puffs. Sonam asks if she should inform his parents about his cravings. He requests not to. She jokes that his amma came. He nervously blabbers that Bablu left cig. She laughs. He says after marriage, they both will be one, so he will take all her good hobbies and share his bad hobbies; she should cig with him now. She calls amma. Dhruv gets afraid and says no. She laughs.
Nutan angrily walks into kitchen. Ankita asks her what to prepare today. Nutan yells that they are servants and have to serve 25 people daily. Ankita says she doesn’t mind cooking. Nutan continues yelling. Pratham hears their conversation and in lieu of picking water bottle says he knows Nutan doesn’t like Sonam and is pointing that she doesn’t know to cook, he will order food from outside hereon. Nutan starts arguing. She reminisces Bua’s words and changing bottle cork says bottle and cork are like husband and wife, both should match, else they won’t fit; similarly Dhruv and Sonam don’t match, so he should take Sonam back home.
Nutan gives Pratham an example that every bottle has a cork made for it and each cork has a bottle made for it and if even by mistake, they are interchanged, they won’t fit. Pratham says he didn’t understand what she is saying, hope she is not saying his daughter as bottle or cork. Nutan says he is bottle and Subhadra is cork. Pratham says just like Shashikant is bottle and she is cork. Nutan says her son is very innocent and simple boy while Sonam is advanced and loves working in office, so she will not work in kitchen or take care of house; her son since the beginning is habituated to get things on his table without effort, but if he marries Sonam, he has to wash his clothes and cook for himself, so his and Sonam’s Jodi won’t match, it is better he takes back his daughter from here. Sonam hears their conversation. Pratham notices her and says she doesn’t have to listen to Nutan and get disheartened. Sonam gifts her handmade bag from old clothes and says she thought she has changed after morning’s event. Sonam says it is not a question of changing or not, it’s a question of her family’s unity and compatibility, she doesn’t fit in her family. Sonam walks away disheartened. Bua walks in and praises Nutan for her act.
Nutan sees Sonam sad and ask if someone told her anything. Pratham says Nutan called her cork. Whole family gathers. Dhruv says amma must have told something in Prayagraj language and they misunderstood. Sonam says it is clear now that Nutan doesn’t like her and is not happy with this alliance. Shashikant scolds Nutan. Pratham says Nutan clearly told that she doesn’t like Sonam and wants this alliance cancelled. Dhruv says he will speak to Sonam. Shashikant says he is right, he should speak to Sonam while he speaks to his Zohra jabeen Nutan. Sonam says there is nothing to speak now, Nutan clearly expressed her feelings and she is not hurt as she called Dhruv also bottle, she is angry with Dhruv that he told his parents have agreed for this marriage and she came here, but she sees that his mother is not happy with his marriage. Dheeraj says hurdles come in marriages and asks Shashikant to describe his experience. Shashikant describes hurdles faced during his wedding and laughs.
Subhadra says only thing important here is Sonam and Dhruv love each other. Dhruv says 3 parents have accepted this wedding, so soon all 4 will. Pratham says only 2 as even he is against wedding, he doesn’t want Nutan to mentally and physically torture his daughter. Sonam says if he is not convinced, let us end this alliance. She walks to her room. Dhruv tries to walk behind trying to speak, but Pratham holds him and says he cares for his daughter more than Dhruv and will not let his family hurt his daughter. Subhadra frees Dhruvs’ hand and warns Pratham that he doesn’t care for anyone, else he wouldn’t have created this drama. She asks Dhruv to go and convince Sonam. Dhruv goes and knocks Sonam’s door. Dheeraj scolds Nutan for creating this drama. Shashikant says even he doesn’t want this wedding like this and his son convincing his wife whole life, he has to find some solution. Dhruv continues convincing Sonam and says he will break the door with the count of 3. He counts 3 and pushes door. Sonam opens door just then and they both fall on floor. Sonam says she is tired of all this drama and they both tried their best to convince their parents, but his mother will not accept her.
