Anupama 23 December 2022: Anupama expresses her feelings for Anuj. She says she had feelings for him long ago and realized it much later, remembering Bapuji’s advice. She says she started seeing him with a different view and used to feel shy in her heart, remembering Bapuji and Samar’s insistence to accept Anuj in her life. She says Mr Shah did only 1 good thing in his life of freeing her, whether someone accepts or not. She describes all the incidents where she felt for him, imagining them. Kinjal returns home angry tired after waiting for Toshu at a restaurant and gets more angry when she sees Toshu busy on phone and a cluc stamp on his wrist. Toshu asks if she is crazy. Kinjal says she is crazy that she tries to revive their love repeatedly and walks to her room. Toshu asks what is the use of creating drama repeatedly. Kinjal says she was madly waiting for him at a restaurant, but he didn’t come. He says he got busy in business meeting. Kinjal says if he gets success by sacrificing their happiness, its the worst deal. Toshu says Malvika is not interested in business and hence he was assisting papa in a meeting. She says he was not at office and shows club stamp. He says he was entertaining client. She says she doubts he was doing something else. He says he is being honest to her and would have easily erased the stamp and lied to her; she has problem if he informs her everything and even if he doesn’t. She says she wants time from him and wants him to equally responsible in their relationship. He says he was busy at office.
She says he should learn work life balance as people work to better their lives and not end it. He gets a call again.Anu tells Anuj that their relationship is of respect as it has friendship, expectation, and pride; they don’t need anything else except each other’s company. Anuj nods yes. She recites a long poem/shayari comparing him to Kanhaji and herself to Radhika. She finally says she wants to spend the rest of her life with him. Anuj smiles happily. She says there is something between them, she will not say him I love you but 7 magical words and wants assurance of 7 lives from him. She says I want to grow old with you. Anuj with a stammering voice asks her to repeat those 7 magical words. She repeats I want to grow old with you; they met in the afternoon of life and she wants to walk with him till the evening of life, wants to attend her children’s wedding with him, live in a small house with him, do gardening with him, share a beautiful flower with him, prepare tea for him and have his prepared tea, hold his hand when she walks bending due to old age.
He asks her to repeat 7 magical words again. She repeats. He says he spent his life waiting to hear 3 magical words from her, but she said 7 magical words instead and asks her to repeat it again again. She repeats. He thanks her. She asks if he wants to grow old with her or not. She says of course, they are not old though. She says one day they will grow old though one day. He says he wants to spend his old age with him and asks why did she take so much time. She says if he wanted her to lie on ICU bed with him after many years and say those words. He asks her again again to repeat those words and laughs out loudly with her. Aaye Ho Meri Zindagi Me Tum Bahar Banke.. song plays in the background. They hold each other’s hands experiencing each other’s love, cut cake, and feed each other.Anuj and Anupama walk holding each other’s hands. Anuj says they would have spent whole night on terrace. She says they would have caught cold. He says they would have set bonfire. She says it would have created smoke and alerted people. He says even people are celebrating valentine’s day. She asks him to go home. He says she should. They both walk to their house and continue their you go in first game and finally close doors feeling shy. Toshu apologizes Kinjal and says he works in office. Kinjal asks if he heard of a word called work life balance, people work to better their life and not end it. He gets a call. She asks him to pick as it must be an important call.
Toshu picks call, says he will call back later, and disconnects it. He says she is not understanding. She says she was alone waiting at a restaurant table and alone even in life even with husband’s presence; girls don’t need gifts but husband’s time and love, they expect a husband’s smile after returning from office and small message between office, etc.; mummy used to say that she and baa used to wait for papa and he never used to come on time, now characters have changed, he is in papa’s place and she is in mummy’s place. He shouts enough now. She says he is right and goes to bed weeping and thinks she need to talk something important with him.Next morning, Anupama wakes up when she heard door bell and hurriedly opens it to find Anuj out. Anuj asks if last night’s valentine celebration was a dream or reality. She nods it was reality, pinches him and asks if she should put his finger in hot tea and prove its reality. Shahs sit silently in living room. Samar reminisces Nandini breaking up with him, Pakhi messages someone not to do that to her. Kavya tells Vanraj that she will help him and together they will takeover Kapadia empire. Bapuji feels shocked hearing that. Kinjal says she is missing mummy. Samar backs her.Anuj sits staring at Anu. Anu says they need to go to work. He says he cannot concentrate, then apologizes and says Mukku had called. Anu asks what did she say, how is she. Anuj says not much, she still is angry. Anu says she will calm down. Anuj reminds she has a promotional dance shoot with Samar. Anu asks what about his job. He says he will think something, she need not worry. She says when he is helping her, even she has to. He says he cannot even breathe without her now. She says feels she got everything, but they need to work to run their house. He says she is right, he wants a job in which he can watch her all the time. She says there is no job like that, so he should find some other job or a business; she needs to finish work and visit Shah house. Yaara O Yaara Milna Hamara.. song plays on FM. They both dance and laugh out loudly. She performs nazar and prays Kanhaji to protect their love.
Kavya serves tea to Baa and Bapuji. Baa asks if she will work with Vanraj. Kavya says yes. Baa asks what did she mix in chutney that he agreed. She says love. Vanraj says work pressure has increased and Kavya will help him. Bapuji says is it necessary that Kavya works in same company, he doesn’t have any problem with Kavya working but why in same company, it looks like Vanraj wants to take over Kapadia empire after Anuj and Anu’s exit. Vanraj gets angry. Bapuji says he doesn’t want to accept his sin, but shouldn’t try to prove himself as innocent. Baa says he is behind her son again. Bapuji says he is even her son. Vanraj says he was his son before, but after Anupama entered this house only she is his daughter. Anu excitedly enters Shah house with sweet box and seeing everyone serious takes Baa and Bapuji’s blessings and asks if something happened. Vanraj taunts she will nothing has happened her, he has seen people distributing sweets after getting job, she is distributing sweets after her livin-in relationship; she brings revolution in everything, be it divorce, boyfriend, or live-in. Samar says sweet is of dance academy, mummy is revamping it. Vanraj says she is back to her old profession and is reversing her gear. Anu says whether she reverses gear or breaks gear box, its none of his business. He says she can do whatever she wants to, but stay away from his house as in India children’s head bends down in shame if mother is shameless. She asks what if father is shameless from the beginning. He says her words will not change the truth that she lives with Anuj alone. She says there is modesty between them which he lacks and shamelessly has an affair even with his parents and children’s presence; there will be modesty between her and Anuj always and for his kind information Anuj stays in opposite house. He says with change of address, humiliation will not change. Baa says he is right.
