Anupama 3 November 2022: Anupama via landline informs Bapuji that she and Anuj are fine and are in some college students’ guest house. Anuj asks her to inform Bapuji that this house is near highway. Call disconnects and phone gets dead.
Anu says Bapuji would inform GK that they are fine. Bapuji informs GK same. Vanraj asks Baa to rest, but she with a frowning face denies and decides to wait till Anu returns. Anu and Anuj feel they shouldn’t disturb youngsters’ party. Their argument starts. Youngsters say they fight so cutely and ask them to join their party. They hesitate. Youngsters show their college reunion dance video and sends them to their parent’s room to change their clothes. Anuj returns, and they say he looks like a dude and its wrong to call him as uncle. Anuj says Anuj is fine.
Anu walks down in shalwar kameez. Anuj remembers the day he saw her first and its it was 23rd July 1995, 10:3:15 a.m. He recites shayari and enjoys Anu dancing with youngsters. Pehla Nasha Pehla Khumar.. song plays in the background. He further imagines sipping cool drinks from her bottle, etc.
Youngsters help their friend Rahul propose her girlfriend Isha. Rahul kneels down and says they were friends and he doesn’t know when he fell in her love, will she be his girlfriend. Isha scolds him and asks who takes so much time to propose, she accepts his proposal and hugs him. He reveals that he saw her first time a year ago and fell in her love. A friend says he was waiting to propose her since that day and hence they planned this party. Anuj remembers his days and thinks if he had shown this courage 26 years ago, his fate would have been something else.
He starts sneezing. He and Anu then dance on Pehli Baar Mohabbat Ki Hai.. song. He feels severe headache and stumbles. Everyone gets concerned and asks if he is fine. He says yes. She scolds him and asks youngsters to take him to room while she brings kadha/herbal decoction for him.
Vanraj continues waiting for Anu and notices its already 3 a.m. Anuj gets a high fever. Anu asks youngsters to call a doctor. They say no one will in this storm. Anu says she will feed him kadha and apply cold compresses. Anuj asks youngsters not to spoil thier party because of him and sends them away. Anu forcefully feeds him kadha and says she is here with him. Anuj’s fever raises. Anu asks him to try to sleep. Anuj says he wants to tell her something and says I.. Boy enters and says they are trying to call doctor continuously in vain. She asks to continue trying and turns to see Anuj asleep. Vanraj continues trying Anu’s number and then calls guest house’ landline and asks if he can speak to Anu as he is from his family. Boy says uncle fell ill. Vanraj unable to hear him asks to repeat. Boy says uncle and aunty are resting in a room. Vanraj burns in anger hearing that.
Next morning, Anuj wakes up and sees Anu sleeping on a couch nearby. Meri Dunya Hai Tujhme Kahin.. song plays in the background. Anu wakes up hearing sound and asks if he is fine. He says yes, he doesn’t know how he fell ill. She says he drenched in rain. He thanks her for taking care of her. She asks if he wouldn’t if she falls ill. He says he will never let anything happen to her. She remembers him trying to say something last night. He asks if he blabbered something subconsciously.
She says usually people speak truth subconsciously. He says he will book a cab and let company’s servicemen tow his car away. She agrees. At Shah house, Vanraj continues frowning remembering boy’s words that uncle aunty are in a room. Kavya taunts him that his ex-wife is returning after a big task, he should welcome her. He drags chair and sits near main door. Samar remembers similar incident earlier.
Anu returns home from her business trip. Vanraj waiting for her near door remembers her leaving home in a sari and returning in a shwalwar kameez. She silently walks in. Nandini asks how was temple darshan. Vanraj says not darshan, she should ask how was her raas leela/romance. Anu angrily shouts Mr. Shah. Baa shouts back at Anu. Samar and Prachi request them not to shout at mummy. Vanraj warns them not to interfere and says he will not listen to Anu’s explanation. Anu says she is tired of explanation and explains whole incident. Baa asks why is her clothes changed. Anu says its that boy’s mother’s clothes and she needs to return them, Anuj got high fever last night. Vanraj says his body must be burning, so she was comforting him alone in a room at 3 a.m.
Anu warns him to behave in front of her daughter and daughter-in-laws. Vanraj asks she shouldn’t say she was not in a room with him. Anu says she was and was taking care of ill Anuj. Kavya shows Anuj and Anu’s dancing video with youngsters. Baa yells if she is not ashamed to lie. Anu says she is not and there must be video of Anuj stumbling and falling down after that. Vanraj asks if his children’s mother is not ashamed of falling in everyone’s eyes. She asks if her children’s father falling in her eyes, he stooped too low and showed his cheapness.
Baa says when she has entered a black room, her clothes would have smeared black. Anu says one whose intentions are clean cannot smear their clothes black. All 3 continue to humiliate her and call her characterless. Samar warns them to dare not call his mother characterless. Toshu backs Vanraj and says his mother is characterless. Samar holds Toshu’s collar, and their fight starts. Nandini and Pakhi stop them. Kavya asks Vanraj to control them. Vanraj asks how can he when their mother is characterless. Baa says she made a sin. Anu says a burden of sin is very heavy, she didn’t do any sin and Baa knowing her well shouldn’t have alleged her character. Vanraj continues. Anu warns to stop or else. He asks what will she do.
Anuj in his house gets concerned for Anu and tells GK that a house where issues are created unnecessarily will create a big drama, Anu has to give agni pariksha again and he feels something wrong will happen this time. Back at Shah house, Anu asks Vanraj to let it go. Vanraj says why should he when she is not. Baa asks what is going on between her and Anuj. Anu asks why is she asking when she doesn’t want to trust her, she told her 100 times that she and Anuj are just friends, but Baa wants to continue questioning until she hears what she wants so. Vanraj asks to speak to her.
Anu says she doesn’t want to talk to him, even she will tell him one last time that she and Anuj are only friends, he can believe her or go to hell. She then starts crying vigorously. Vanraj asks not to cry after doing heinous act. Baa continues calling her characterless. Samar asks when she didn’t for 26 years, then why now. Baa says Anu’s character has changed seeing Anuj’s wealth. Anu says she feels she was staying with strangers for 26 years.
Mamaji warns Baa to stop her cheap talks in jijaji’s absence, she may apply perfume for a pleasant smell, but Anu’s character spreads pleasant smell. Baa warns him to shut up. Kavya starts next. Anu warns her to shut up. Vanraj shouts she has to respect Baa. Anu says enough of giving respect, they are questioning her character after doing so much for them, enough now and this is her last tears. Vanraj says she has to cry until she gives agni pariksha. Anu asks who is he to seek agni pariksha as its given to Ram and not Ravan.
Baa shouts Anupamaaaa. Anu signals her hand to stop and says even a stone breaks down with continuous hammering, she is a human though; she was afraid that a day will come when she will say she cannot tolerate anymore, today is that day; Draupadi was humiliated in a sabha, she was humiliated in front of her children; this house will not be same after so much happened, so she will leave this house. Kavya says she got a chance to shift with Anuj, shall she call Anuj to pick her up, will they have marriage first or honeymoon like they already did, etc. Anu says Kavya slept with a married man in this house on her bed already and is questioning her. She tells Baa that she should have questioned her son and bahu who did all that in real. Toshu tries to support Vanraj. Anu warns him to shut up or else she will slap him and he will fall in his pent house, now its time to leave this house with whatever precious this house has. Kavya says she will not get any jewelry or money. Anu says one who thinks jewelry and money is precious is the most poor person on earth, she will take away her self-respect and devotion.
