She asks is this your son, he is so cute, you had child so soon. Kanika says I was troubled and could not say anything. Mihika asks her to come and talk. She asks how can your husband do this, men feel women is property, you should have left him before. Kanika asks how, my son was there, my husband threatened me to leave my son, I can’t leave my son with my husband, he is a Casanova, case was tough, I won custody case, now I m happy with my son.

She says one mistake makes others point on family, did we teach this to you, we were worried, we have bear what others say. Adi says we did not do anything wrong. Mani asks Dadi where did you get them. Dadi says railway station, station master called me. Mani asks where were they going. Dadi says nowhere, they were cancelling my Chennai ticket.
Adi says yes, Dadi was going because of me, as she got angry with Mani, I went to cancel ticket, but the man asked for ID, so maybe he called Dadi. Ishita says he is my son, and she is my daughter, I gave them these values, you doubt on my family and relations, culture, our relations are different, but not distant, marriage colors are different but meaning is not wrong, I m hurt, Dadi has blamed all of us, Mani is my childhood friend, we raised together, there can’t be anyone’s pure relation, you raised finger on us, I felt very hurt, you tell me what would you name this relation, two broken lives tried to manage two kids’ lives, tried to make them a family, we joined broken family, what would you try to name this relation, my husband did not point on me, he is not like that, no one has right to point on us, it hurts, we can’t get better children like Adi and Aaliya.
She says they have seen so much, they did not misbehave, our children did not cross limits, they tried to win your heart, Adi learnt this from us to win elder’s heart and not hurt them, you have blamed us, Raman and Mani got together, you told so much, Raman did not say anything as he cares for me, he loves me a lot, the family loves me, my father in law felt bad by your words, as I m his daughter, our family is made by love, we have no boundaries, its bonded by love, you can get confusion seeing us, there were complications, its beautiful thing that we completed our lives, you outsiders won’t understand this love and bond, we don’t do overacting to show love, we just love each other, children learnt this.
Adi asks her to sit. Ishita says its not okay, I felt bad, Dadi pointed finger on our family. Aaliya and Adi hug Dadi. Adi says Dadi, I won’t meet Aaliya till you accept me, I can’t lose you for Aaliya. Ishita asks Dadi did you see and hear. Dadi says yes, I m hearing since long, but people won’t listen, Bala’s mum created big issue, how many mouths will you shut. Raman asks what shall you do.
Dadi says you have to do something, I have no problem with Adi and Aaliya’s marriage. They get glad. Aaliya thanks Dadi. Dadi says wait, Raman and Ishita have to do something. Raman says we agree to everything. Mani says yes, whatever you want. Dadi says I don’t want Aaliya to go in such house where her Saas-Sasur are living together without marriage, so Ishita and Raman have to marry again with all rituals. Raman says our marriage happened. Dadi says you stayed with Shagun, Mani stayed with Ishita, you have to show people you are husband and wife. Raman asks why to prove. Dadi says I don’t want anyone to point on Aaliya, she is my pride, this is imp for me.
Mani asks Ishita and Raman to marry again, if this makes Dadi happy. Adi and Aaliya ask them to agree for their sake. Raman asks Ishita what do you want. Ishita says we will marry for everyone’s sake. Raman too agrees. Adi and Aaliya hug them. Yeh hai mohabbatein…..plays……………… They all smile.
Bhalla family talking happily about Raman and Ishita’s marriage. Raman says I thought Papa will refuse for this. Mr. Bhalla says no, we will do marriage grandly, we agree to Dadi. Dadi and Mani come and give sweets to Amma. Ishita asks what did you think of Aaliya and Adi. Dadi says I think they both are young, they should make their career, and become financially independent, then marry and settle, but we will get them engaged. Everyone like idea. Adi teases Raman for marrying again. Raman says I married 7 times till now, you will know when you marry, even yours is a Madrasan.
Ruhi says we decided it will be grand marriage, not a court marriage, we will keep all functions. Amma says I will dance well in all functions. Ishita asks why all this, we will keep
simple function. Raman agrees with Ishita. Dadi says Ruhi is right, marriage is an event, and rituals are imp. Raman jokes on the rituals. They laugh. Dadi says its ritual, you have to marry else… Raman says fine, we agree. Ishita asks Mani’s approval, can we hide this from Shagun, else she will get Pihu, don’t know how will Pihu react. Amma thinks to tell Ishita about Pihu’s hand burn.
Shagun comes home with Pihu. She sees Aaliya and hugs her. She asks where were you, I think aunty’s train missed, it was so much stress, we are feeling better. Dadi says you look fresh. Pihu says mumma had stress, so mumma went to spa to de-stress. Shagun sends Pihu. Dadi says I don’t want to know anything, I have to say something, I gave permission for Adi and Aaliya’s marriage. Shagun gets shocked and says I m so happy for Aaliya, I will call pandit and fix date. Dadi says no need, I will see that, come with me Aaliya. They go. Mani asks Shagun are you happy for Adi and Aaliya. Shagun says yes, I m really very happy.
Mihika says we should do something retro. Ruhi says no, retro is outdated, I think we should do bollywood theme. Simmi says Raman will need choreographer. Romi asks Raman to see the designer clothes. Raman says what will I do of sherwani, its Madrasi marriage, I won’t need clothes. Ishita says its Adi and Aaliya’s engagement too, select clothes for it. Simmi and Mihika tease Raman. Raman says you all are having fun and goes. Amma says I need to tell Ishita about Pihu. Simmi says I need to talk to you aunty, come with me. She takes Amma. Amma asks what happened. Simmi says I know why you came here, I know about Pihu. Amma says Mrs. Bhalla does not want me to tell Ishita about Pihu. Pihu is not safe with Shagun, Ishita has right to know, she is mum of Pihu.
Simmi says we will say after marriage, Raman and ishita can get tension, things can spoil. Mihika hears them and asks what happened, tell me, maybe I can help. Amma says nothing. Simmi says we will tell you, promise Mihika you won’t tell anyone. Mihika promises. Amma says we will go our home and talk. Raman looks for something. Ishita asks what happened. Raman gets a saree and says this saree…. She recalls her bridal saree and smiles. He says I have thrown everything, but did not have courage to throw this, Lord gives one chance to have seven vows, but Lord gave us second chance, lets see how you know. He covers her with saree and says you look even the same. She smiles and hugs him.
Mihir asks Mihika what’s the plan. Mihika asks do you know any lawyer named Kunal Sethi, I feel I heard this name by you. Mihir says he is my school friend, we chat in our school friends chat group, why do you ask. She says its about Pihu and tells the matter. He gets worried. She says I don’t think Pihu is safe with Shagun, shall we approach Kunal for Pihu’s custody. He says I will forward number, you can talk to me, let me know if you need help. She says thanks, think this can be best gift for Raman and Ishita’s marriage, Pihu’s custody…..
Aaliya asks Mani can’t we send Shagun anywhere. He asks how and where, I can’t send Shagun alone, I have to go with her. Dadi comes and says I spoke to pandit. Mani asks her to talk slowly. Dadi says I forgot, pandit gave Adi and Aaliya’s engagement time same as Raman and Ishita’s marriage. Mani asks how will we keep Shagun away, she will come for engagement. Dadi says don’t worry, marriage is in morning and engagement is in evening, what happened Aaliya. Mani says Aaliya is worried for Shagun, relax Aaliya, I will keep Shagun busy, all will be well. Aaliya hugs Mani and Dadi. She says love you Appa and Dadi.
Ruhi asks Adi what is he doing, I have put new songs. Adi says Ishita does not like new songs, she likes old songs, do you know to play your rock songs. Ruhi says yes. The elders ask why are they agreeing. Ruhi says people will sleep with slow songs. Mr. Bhalla says stop it now, and asks Simmi about Todna ritual. Simmi says literally Todna, like pulling each other’s leg. Ruhi says I like it, Adi and I will be in opposite teams. Mr. Bhalla, Romi, Simmi, Adi, Ruhi and Mihika join Ishita’s team. Raman says fine, I came in world alone and will go alone. Amma asks why are you saying this. Raman asks her to see. Amma says Bhallas are with Ishita, we are with you, no choice. Raman asks what, no choice, take Ishita, I won’t marry.
