Anupama 5 January 2023: Bapuji asks Samar about Anupama. Samar says mummy is waiting for Anuj. Anu thinks Mr Shah will not give up easily and must be waiting for her outside, so she thinks if she should get out of house via ladder like last time. Mamaji waits for Rakhi outside house. Bapuji asks whom he is waiting for. Mamaji says he forgot. Bapuji signals he must be waiting for Rakhi. Mamaji says he is right. Samar says they haven’t invited Rakhi. Mamaji feels sad hearing that. Anupama walks down hiding and covers herself with curtains. Anuj waits for her. Samar feels disheartened looking at Nandini’s house and remembering their last holi. A girl wishes him happy holi and invites him for holi party. He agrees but remembering Nandini denies.
Anu covers herself with a curtain walks out of house. Anuj rejoices seeing her. Anu calls him. An energetic song plays n the background. They both uncover themselves and run towards each other and finally meet. He applies color on her cheek and wishes her happy holi. Yeh Laal Ishq.. plays in the background. She applies him color back. He says they were running behind him to throw colors on him, now he will show what holi means. They both throw color on Vanraj. Vanraj shouts who dared to throw color on him. Anu says who else than her. Anuj taunts Vanraj. Anu tells Vanraj that he can throw color on her now as she and Anuj are already colored in each other’s colors. She applies him tilak and wishing him happy holi suggests him to stop his childish acts. He walks away frowning.Anu wishes happy holi to Kanhaji and prays Kanhaji for helping them. Anuj prays to keep his blessings on their love always. Kumkum falls on Anu’s hair. Anuj says even god now blessed and hinted her. She walks away shying. Vanraj vents out his frustration on a chair and thinks how can Anu and Anuj win always and he loses always.
Rakhi visits Shahs. Mamaji happily rushes to apply holi to her. She shoos him away like usual and then applying color on Baa wishes her happy holi. Baa says it was happy before her arrival. Mamaji jokes on Baa. Dolly asks Samar about Anu. Anu enters with Anu, wishes them happy holi, and applies color to them all. Baa asks who applied color to her. Anu looks at Anuj. Bapuji says Kanhaji used to apply color on Radhaji first. Baa frowns. Pakhi asks her to stop eyerolling and have fun. Her and Samar’s nok jhok starts. Girls join Pakhi and form a team and boys join Samar. They both compete with a dance on Soni Soni Ankhiyonwali.. song.Vanraj feels more jealous seeing Anu and Anuj enjoying. Kavya notices him and asks if he hates holi. He says he hates Anu and Anupama more. She says he is obsessed with them; she is really fed up now; he always thinks about them, especially Anu. Bapuji joins Anu and sings with her. Samar joins them. Vanraj stands aside seeing family enjoying holi and grins getting a plan.
Anuj in an intoxicated state continues describing each Shah family member’s nature. Anuj asks him to stop. Anuj says in this whole house, Vanraj, Baa, and Kavya are very toxic and hence he doesn’t want her to stay in this house. Rakhi taunts Baa that she calls her naagin, but her would be damad/SIL is calling her toxic. Bapuji tries to feed lemon juice to Anuj and asks everyone to go their rooms. Rakhi says she will freshen up in a hotel and return to watch this drama. Everyone walk away. Anu sits next to Anuj and asks if he is fine. Anuj says he doesn’t like this house as it snatched her identity and now snatching her from him, he misses her. Anu says let us talk about it after going home and tries to feed him lemon juice. Anuj says these people are using saam, daam, and, bhed and snatching her happiness; when she left this house already, why they are not leaving her. She says she called GK and he should go home with him. Anuj insists to go home only with her. She says she will come after changing her clothes. He insists. She asks him not to get adamant. He says he will go but will not leave his adamancy to make her his dear one.
After some time, Rakhi returns after freshening up and sees Shah family sitting silently. She asks if the drama is over. Dolly stops her. Anu walks in. Rakhi thinks drama will start now and asks Anu where is her sanskar when she teaches sansakr at least 10 times a day, is it an age to romance when she is getting her grandson, a grandmother cannot marry.
Anuj feels hangout. GK offers him tea silently. Anuj asks if he created a big problem. GK asks how does he know as he wasn’t present there. Anuj asks if Anu didn’t say anything, did he blast a bomb. GK says its a bomb for a middle class family and describes what he did. Anuj gets worried for Anu. GK asks why did he drink bhang. Anuj says he doesn’t know. GK says Anu has to face the burnt now.Baa does garbha around Anu. Anu stops her and says she will get short of breath. Baa says she will be breathless because of her and says people taunt a mother if she marries again, she is becoming a grandmother and people will not spare her. Bapuji says she didn’t have any issue with Anu and Anuj’s wedding and herself asked Anuj to fill Anu’s hairline. Baa says Anu was a mother then and now is becoming a grandmother; people will point at her. Bapuji says people marry even after becoming grandparents. Baa says only men marry as they can do anything and gives a long lecture why a grandmother shouldn’t marry. Anu stands stunned while Rahi smirks seeing the drama.
GK tells Anuj that he expressed his words in a wrong way but said right. Anuj asks what does he mean. GK says he is right and Anupama will support him. Anuj says he knows, but whenever its a question of family Anu. GK interrupts and says family is bonded by love and Anupama will stand up for love, she lives for relationship and his and Anu’s relationship very strong, he always supported her and hence even she will support her. Anuj says he will go there right now to support Anu as he cannot let her bear the wrath alone silently.Baa continues her justification and says she will ask when Vanraj can marry 1 year ago why can’t she, the world will not spare her. Samar says they are not bothered about the world. Baa says if he stays in the world or Himalaya, world has progressed only for men and women still live a deprived life since generations, men are made with attitude and women are made with sacrifice, etc. Dolly says she has reply to her every question. Rakhi stops her and says customs are made for a reason. Baa asks to put themselves in this situation and realize that daadi and shaadi cannot go along. Bapuji says she cannot force Anupama. Baa gets admant and orders Anu to inform Anuj that she cannot marry him. Anu stands speechless. Baa and her supporters walk away. Rakhi says entertainment is over and even she leaves.
Kavya insists Vanraj that Anu should marry Anuj to end her connection completely with Vanraj. Vanraj says it will never happen as Anu is his children’s mother and whenever there is a question of children, they both will stand together; he is sure Anu will not marry Anuj as she is a grandmother now and in their society, grandmothers don’t marry. Anuj gets restless and says its his mistake that he gave Baa one more reason to taunt Anu, what if Baa insists Anu to cancel her marriage, he needs to speak to Anu. GK prays god not to test their love more. Bapuji, Dolly, and Samar support Anu and ask her not to bother about Leela’s words and go ahead with marriage.
