Everyone asks Sitara to dance for Rani Sa who agrees to do it for Rani Sa’s sake. Hariyali too wants to dance for Rani Sa. Padmini says we will get to see the talent of both of you. There couldn’t be anything better! Everyone cheers for them. Hariyali and Sitara have a face off. Sitara brings cake in the end. Rani Sa loves the cake (appearance). Yamini shares that Sitara spent the entire day baking it. Rani Sa asks Sitara why she worked so hard. Viraj tells his mother to cut the cake. They sing Happy Birthday song as Rani Sa cuts the cake. Vishkanya’s smile. Viraj takes a piece and is about to feed it to his mother when the mystery guy hits at his hand shocking everyone including Vishkanya’s.
Sitara asks him why he did that. He shares that there is poison in the cake. Sitara says you must be mistaken. I made it myself. He takes a piece and crumples it in front of everyone. Ht throws it on the plant which burns down in seconds. Everyone’s eyes widen in shock. Mystery guy says I also know who did this! Vishkanya’s leave from there. Viraj asks him who is behind this. Mystery guy replies that this family has many enemies. You wont believe me if I take any name as sometimes your closed ones are the culprits. Viraj tells him to come clear if he knows anything. Mystery guy wants to bring the culprit with proof. Viraj says why should we trust it. You have already decided that we trust you? Mystery guy denies. I don’t want to point a finger at anyone without proof. It is a big day though. Why don’t we continue with the celebrations? Viraj agrees. Thank you for saving us. They shake as they share introductions.
Rani Sa thanks the mystery guy (Surya) for saving them. May God fulfil your every wish! Arjun and Yamini thank him for saving their family. Viraj asks Surya if he has come here for some work. You aren’t from here. Surya nods. I came here for work. Rani Sa asks him where he is staying. He shares that he is staying at a hotel nearby. Sitara invited me over. I was away from family for too long so I thought to come here. They tell him to stay with us from now onwards. Padmini addresses him as brother. Surya agrees. He thinks this is his first victory. Now they will lose one by one. This happened because of Vishkanya’s. I had been trying to get inside the house since so many days!
Vrinda wonders how Surya becomes Sitara’s shield every time she is in trouble. How did he know about the poison? Albeli nods. How come we are failing every time? Even Surili wonders how there are roadblocks in their every plan. I think Hariyali would have found out everything by now. Albeli is confused. Vrinda says Sitara wont add poison in the cake herself and Hariyali need not add poison in the cake. Everyone knows that we are the only enemies of this family. Hariyali wont take much time to figure out everything. Surili suggests disappearing for some time. Albeli seconds her but Vrinda reprimands them from backing out when they are so close to achieving what they have always wanted! Don’t try to use your brain. Just do as I say! I know how to handle Hariyali and that family!
Samrat holds a big box in front of his face and teases Rani Sa. She pulls his ears sweetly. Thank you for the gift. He asks for a return gift. Rani Sa asks him to say it. Samrat looks at his mother. Rani Sa tells him to ask her anything freely. I am your Badi Ma after all. Samrat confesses that he wants to marry Hariyali. Please speak to her on my behalf. Rani Sa stops Viraj from saying anything. I am talking to Samrat. She tells Samrat she cannot make this decision. It is up to Hariyali whether she wants to marry you or not. Hariyali walks up to them and looks at Samrat. She says no to Samrat. Rani Sa stops him from pursuing them matter any further. Hariyali has told us what she wants. I want you to respect her decision. He walks away sadly.
Viraj asks his mother why she dint accept his gift. I brought it with love. She says I don’t want it. It is my birthday so the gift has to be of my choice. He asks her what she wants to ask from him. Will I say no to you ever? She smiles. This is what I wanted to hear. She keeps his hand in Sitara’s and ties a holy thread over it. You both will be tied like this for the coming 24 hours starting from now. None of you will break it. They look at her in confusion. Hariyali is miffed. I got rid of Samrat with so much difficulty but this! Viraj asks his mother to ask for something else but she stays put. Surya thinks this house has so many dramas going on than he had imagined. There is still a lot of drama to unfold in this house!
Viraj and Sitara bicker cutely in their room. They end up refusing to talk to each other over a glass of water but the strings of her blouse open as they turn their backs to each other. He apologizes to her and fixes it. Baahon Ke Darmiyaan plays. Sitara smiles when she isn’t facing him. They look awkwardly at each other. She smiles recalling the night they came close. The situation is same today but everything has changed. He falls asleep and rests his head on her shoulder. Sitara caresses his head but shifts a little because of which he wakes up. He says sorry to her. She says it’s okay and pretends to be unhappy. She tries to remove her earrings but it is difficult with one hand. Viraj looks on as she manages somehow. He rests her head on the sofa. Viraj thinks to avoid drinking water or he might have to go to the loo. She asks him if he said something but he declines.
They are having trouble staying awake and look towards the bed. They decide to sleep on the bed. He is having trouble opening his Sherwani. They share an eye lock as she unbuttons it from the top. She also opens his wristwatch and keeps it on the side table. He keeps a pillow between them. She does the same. They pull the blanket together. Their heads touch as they try to lie down. They share another eye lock. He looks at her as she lies down. She switches off the lamp and looks at him.
Hariyali is trying Viraj’s number but he isn’t picking her call. Surya tells her that she will keep pacing angrily and Sitara will snatch everything from her. Hariyali asks him what he has come here to snatch. He says she doesn’t have anything to give to me. She is sure there is some evil intention behind his calm appearance. No one helps anyone without a reason. You will do the damage soon if you are pretending to help Sitara now. Did I say something wrong? He denies. I will get what I have come here for but you will lose Viraj very soon. She shouts after him as he walks away.
Windows open up because of strong wind. Viraj wakes up because of the noise. He has a smile on his face when he looks at Sitara but he is concerned about the windows at the same time. He tries to wake her up but she speaks in her dream in fear. He hugs her to calm her down. Hariyali peeks at Viraj from the window and notices him patting at Sitara’s head holding her close. She looks at the parrot and then at her cat.
Sitara wakes up and looks at Viraj. I am sorry. I saw a bad dream. He nods. It’s okay. We have to close the window. Hariyali is still standing behind the window. She sends her cat inside when Viraj and Sitara get up. The cat jumps on Sitara by mistake and runs out of the window. Viraj wonders how it came there but Sitara suggests closing the window first. Hariyali flees from there.
Vrinda tells Hariyali she is right. Even I am worried about the parrot. They all are curious about the parrot. Hariyali is certain there is something strange about that parrot. Vrinda decides to kill it asap.
Next morning, Sitara wakes up. She notices Viraj sleeping on the edge of the bed and worries that he might fall down while shifting in his sleep. She calls out to him but he is in deep sleep. She tries to pull him up but gets pulled towards him instead. She falls on top of him. He wakes up and they share an eye lock.
