Anupama 22 June 2022: Vanraj tells Kavya that she should have asked him once before taking a decision. He says he was angry on her, but that doesn’t mean he wants to stay with Anupama; even earlier, he used to stay with family and sleep in same room with Anupama; she used to handle him when he used to have problem with Anupama; he saw his death, so he was very afraid and in that situation any person would like to be in a comfort zone with family. He lies that Kavya was right the other day in cab, Anu is really trying to come closer to her. Anu notices them via kitchen window. Kinjal walks to her and seeing Vanraj in Kavya’s house if papa went to meet Kavya or stay with her. Anu says only he can say that. Vanraj continues that he loves his family and parents, so he tolerated Anu because of them; he knows what she is doing, but he cannot react as he cannot lose his family again; he has become a laundryman’s dog and can’t stay at either place; Bapuji scolds him there taking Anu’s side and now Kinjal also taunts her like Rakhi; he is at the verge of losing job, now Kavya also is against her; he should have died in accident instead of facing all this. Kavya hugs him asking not to say that. He smirks. Anu and Kinjal notice that, Kinjal comments as expected.
Vanraj says he wsa angry on her when she created drama at Toshu’s wedding, but he forgve her but couldn’t speak as he was helpless; like she said, there is no use of these words as life gave him one shock and Kavya gave another; he doesn’t know if he can manage himself or not, but not to worry he will bear the pain and would not come in her way; if she has moved on, he will not stop her and he now knows that her happiness is not with him, he didn’t know their love story would end this way, he is very sorry.He walks slowly towards door thinking why she is not stopping him. He slowly gets out of house and seeing Anu in kitchen reminisces her words that their relationship has ended and she is no more his wife. Kavya stops him and says he is right, their love story cannot end this way; love story should end when love ends, they love each other so much, that is why she gets jealous seeing him with Anu and he gets jealous seeing her with Anirudh; she thinks she had to use Anirudh to make Vanraj realize his love for her and every mistake and sin is forgiven in love.
She reminisces Rakhi’s advice that she should make Vanraj jealous instead to get him back and she shows how to do that. Vanraj smirks at Anu. Kavya says she needs complete freedom from Anupama’s related insecurity, he has to choose between her and Anupama, now either he would be completely hers or not; if he has to be with her, he has to end all relationships with Anupama, mentally, physically, and legally.Toshu sees Kinjal engrasped in thoughts and asks what is she thinking. Kinjal says when he was helping mummy in kitchen, she saw papa in Kavya’s house; its so easy for a man to go to his girlfriend’s house in front of his children, wife, and parents; she feels very weird and remembers her mom’s words that extramarital affair is allowed in this house. Toshu says sometimes we don’t react the way we should Kinjal says if this should be sorted out or not. He says let us get back to studies. She says she is not in a mood to study. He says there was no need to study if she had accepted her mom’s offer. She asks what. He says he was joking. She says he wasn’t and shouldn’t joke like this again.
Baa yells at Anu that her son is out of house without phone and nobody is worried for him. Bapuji says he is not a kid and will return home. Baa says he is ill and she is worried for him. Door bell rings and Baa yells at Anu to open it as Vanraj came. Anu opens door and sees Vanraj standing. Baa asks him to come in and asks everyone to start dinner. Kavya comes from behind Vanraj. Vanraj thinks Anu was showing arrogance, but he knows how to break it. Kavya thinks she challenged Anu to snatch Vanraj from her and she did it now. Baa asks Vanraj what is maide ki katori Kavya doing here. Vanraj says he is going with Kavya forever. She asks not to take a decision in haste and to wait for sometime, she blames Kavya for hypnotizing her son and making him run behind her. Pakhi also pleads Vanraj not to go. Vanraj says he has made his decision and now he wants to completely separate from Anu. Kavya goes to get Vanraj’s bags. Baa asks why is he doing this. He says because of Anu, she saw he tried his best to convince Anu, but she is undeterred, he apologized her but cannot fall on her feet. Kavya dances with Vanraj’s suits and throws away Anu’s sari. He thanks Anu for taking care of him and keeping him in her house. She says welcome, she knows why he is doing this and why he took this decision after their chat in temple; she would tell again that whatever he did with her should do with Kavya as Kavya doesn’t know that the man she madly loves loves only himself. Kavya brings Vanraj’s bag.
Anu walks to her room thinking he took a decision and now she will also take one decision. She calls Sanjay and asks if they can meet his lawyer friend to discuss about divorce tomorrow.Anu confronts Vanraj that she waited a lot thinking that he would marry Kavya and end their relationship, but he doesn’t want to be either of Kavya or her, hence she took a decision of divorcing him. Baa says a wife sacrifices her life for husband and is nothing without husband’s name. Anu says she is right that a woman is nothing without her husband’s name, but should be; she will try be a mother, daughter, and DIL without being a wife and will even die trying it; there won’t be anything half in her life. Vanraj asks Toshu, Baa, and Pakhi that everyone does mistakes and even he did, he just wanted to return to them as his family is important to him, but Anu’s arrogance and ego is important to her; he apologized Anu in temple and requested to punish him, but she doesn’t want to forgive him.
Anu shouts to stop and says he wanted to return home and she never stop him from returning home and follow his duty of a son and a father, she will never stop him from meeting them as only 1 relationship ended and rests are intact; he can allege her anything but not say that anything is important to her than family; he always alleged others for his mistakes; he went to Kavya as he had problems with her and said she was unfit for him, illiterate, uncultured, and smell masalas; he returned here alleging Kavya that she didn’t take care of him and now he wants becomes my husband again and alleging me for not letting him become one; either gharwali/insider or baharwali/outside, man thinks only woman is at mistake and even woman accepts it as she is taught to become great, but she doesn’t want to become great and just wants to be a human; she doesn’t need his money or anything; they lied for 25 years and she has good memories along with bad, so he shouldn’t spoil them and reply to his divorce notice soon.
Vanraj says his lawyer will reply to her legal notice and he will break her arrogance soon, she made a mistake by challenging Vanraj Shah and he will show her want he can.Pakhi says she doesn’t care who made a mistake, but she wants her always; by filing for a divorce, mummy forced her to choose between him and her, she chooses him and wants to go with him. Vanraj walks away holding her hand. Baa cries pleading him not to go. Bapuji stops her. Anu runs behind Pakhi and stops her. Vanraj says when she broke the house, people will shatter for sure. Pakhi says she wants to go with papa. Anu says she needs her mother’s blessings when she is going out of house. Pakhi says she doesn’t hate her, but she is not understanding what she means. Anu says papa loves her and he will never stop her from doing anything, she should take care of herself, she is worried as she is going away from her for the first time, she shouldn’t trouble papa. Vanraj says if her chatting is finished, they will leave as they are getting late.
Anu stands asking Pakhi to take care of herself while car leaves. Serial’s title track plays in the background. Anu returns home. Baa yells first she kicked her son out of house and now her granddaughter.Anu enters Pakhi’s room and cries looking at her stuff. Ek Chidaiya..song.. plays in the background. She cries profusely holding Pakhi’s school bag. Baa walks to her and throwing threads towards her says Pakhi united these threads thinking her parents will stay together; she broke the house and should break these threads also; she saw other women breaking others house, but not herself breaking her own house; if she has a heart or stone in her chest, her husband and daughter left home, even then her heart didn’t melt; her son did so much for her, apologized her so many times, fought with Rakhi, etc., even god would have melted with this, but she didn’t; she is not the first woman to bear all this, but she is acting so much. She continues yelling and alleging her.
Vanraj returns to Kavya’s home. She asks where was he. He says Anupama sent him divorce notice, so he had gone home. Pakhi walks behind him. He says he hopes she doesn’t mind. Kavya reminiscing Vanraj telling that his family and children are most important to her says Pakhi is her bestie and she doesn’t mind. She asks Pakhi if she should order pizza and sits with her chatting. Vanraj looking at divorce notice thinks Anu spoke a lot today, but they say sau sunar ki ek lohar ki, she should wait for his attack.Baa continues that there is an age to fight, she became Niruprai and didn’t fight when she had to and is fighting now in Niruparai’s age; she has become saas now, people speak when couple divorce, pity when parents divorce, and laugh when saas and sasur divorce; this age is of going to pilgrimage and not going to court; she burnt her own relationship; she will realize when Pakhi won’t be married and blamed saying she must be like her mother, she didn’t even think once and broke her house.
Anu asks if she betrayed or him. Baa says he. Anu says he betrayed and made mistake, then why she is teaching her; she is repeating same words to accept betrayal as she is a woman and ruin her self-respect for her husband. Baa yells what will she do with her self-respect, she should forget it and concentrate on her family. Anu says woman lives on love and self-respect, love is gone and she will be gone if her self-respect is gone. Baa yells to stop these words, people will laugh on them. Anu says people laughed even when Vanraj left with Kavya. Baa says she slapped Vanraj and ended the issue. Anu asks to slap her also and end the issue; the society she is talking about didn’t come to share her pain, wipe her tears or encourage her, then why would it come to question her; when the society doesn’t care about her, even she doesn’t care about society; she wants to live with dignity and breathe freely, rather than being referred as left by husband, she wants to be referred as she left her husband; Pakhi’s parents won’t be divorce, she is divorcing her husband, woman is taught to suffocate always, but she has to learn to breathe freely and she is learning same. She returns her Pakhi’s threads and walks away.
Vanraj, Pakhi, and Kavya enjoy pizzas. Pakhi goes to bring cold drinks. Vanraj says its a matter of 2 days and Pakhi may return tomorrow itself. Kavya says its okay, she doesn’t mind with Pakhi’s presence. Vanraj says she and Pakhi can sleep on bed and he will sleep on couch. She says she has rolling bed and Pakhi can sleep on that. He says it would be awkward. She says there is nothing to feel awkward, Pakhi knows we are together and even at home he and Anu had separate room. He hopes so. Pakhi thinks Anu must have sent Pakhi here so that she and Vanraj shouldn’t spend time together, but Vanraj returned to her after a lot of difficulty and she will not let him a reason to go.
Samar meets Nandini and says its not easy to accept mummy and papa’s divorce. Nandini says if 2 people are not compatible with each other, its better they divorce. Samar hopes mummy stays happy after divorce. Nandini says society cannot see a woman happy. His friends standing nearby taunt that they can’t see Samar’s happiness. Samar warns to be in limits. They say he should have taught his father and laugh that his father left with a babe leaving his illiterate mother, etc. Samar angrily trashes them. Neighbors gather. Mamaji noticing that calls family out. Toshu and Kinjal join them and trash goons. Goons run away. Neighbors discuss this family has drama each day, earlier father and now son. Samar angrily walks home. Rakhi watches drama and smirks. Family rushes behind Samar and asks why he lost his calm, he didn’t even fight when Pakhi was bullied, what happened now. Anu asks Nandini what happened there. Samar reminisces goons insulting Anu and says if they insult his mother, he will trash them repeatedly. Anu says people are habituated to taunt, they can’t shut everyone’s mouth.
He says he can break their mouth then and walks to his room. Kinjal tells Anu that Samar’s anger is valid, she will speak to him and everything will be alright. Rakhi enters saying really? Toshu checks Samar’s injiuries and thanks god that nothing serious happened, he will handle goons. Samar says he will accompany him. Tosu says his elder brother is enough to handle them and hugging him consoles him. Rakhi comments that after father left home, son became a goon and may murder some day. Kinjal says nothing of that sort will happen, its those goons’ mistake as they were rubbishing about mummy and papa. Rakhi says oh is it. Baa asks if she will not feel bad if someone insults her father. Rakhi says her father didn’t have an affair, his girlfriend didn’t come to her house, or her parents didn’t divorce; if drama happens, people will laugh, clap, and whishle. B aa says she will slap her. Rakhi says she can understand Anu’s pain, her business head informed that Vanraj returned to Kavya’s house with Pakhi, now Samar fought, how can Anu tolerate so much; she even heard Anu sent divorce notice to Vanraj; she is really great; if she didn’t have back pain or Anu’s feet are not dirty, she would have touched her feet. Kinjal says she told this sarcastically, but mummy is really great.
Rakhi asks if greatness is bigger than family, divorce in this age, society will not let her or her family live in peace. Kinjal stops her, but she warns to let elders speak. She continues that she thought this family just does drama, but found today that this family even does goondagiri; she accepted alliance unwillingly, now she is ashamed to call Vanraj as her samdhi and soon she may have to visit police station seeing what happened outside today. Rakhi yells at Kinjal that they way Kinjal got involved in a fight with family, she wouldn’t be surprised to get a call from police station to pay bail money as Shahs cant afford it. Anu says she should stop coming here to stop hearing people’s taunts; Samar is a kid and will understand that people are habituated to taunt, she will not back off from her decision and will be stick to it.
