I do 1 March 2022:Asad is shocked to hear about nikhat. In ayan’s family all are worried for nikhat and ayan blames himself for this. Zoya is scared that asad knows everything now.
The doctor assures the family that she’s out of danger, but she’s suffering from acute depression and that they have to be very careful, or else this might repeat. He asks mamu to take care of this next time around, so that he isnt compelled to report to the police. Ayan is highly tensed and guilty. Nikhat remembers haseena’s descision and is tensed. rashid and shirin are distraught to see her like that. they come by her bedside, while she barely controls her tears. rashid asks her whats was she about to do, as if anything happened to her, how would they have lived.
she says that she did this for them only, so that they dont have to bear insult anymore. Rashid says that escapism isnt the right way to deal with things and do them right. Hew says that she shall have to live, for herself and the society. She says that she is destined with a cursed fate. shirin asks her not to talk like this, as destiny can be changed and everything would be alright. Nikhat says that it isnt that easy to change destiny, or else why would this have happened, and that ayan wont be blamed for this. They agree that they wont blame ayan for this. Nikhat says that some people are destined to win and some to lose. they ask her to stop being so aggressive, but she breaks down saying that she lost. She asks them to leave. ayan, seeing all this, from the door is distraught. Ayan thinks that he wont let her go far from them, and that he would change what destiny has in store for them
Zoya asks what did ayan say. Asad says that he couldnt understand anything clearly as he was continuously crying and that nikhat tried to kill herself, and he was blaming himself for that. He wonders whats this big mistake that ayan has done. Zoya says that she knows what is ayan talking about. Asad asks how does she know and what does she know. Just then ayan comes through the window, and hugs asad. Asad asks how’s nikhat.
Ayan says that he’s out of danger but he’s scared that she might repeat it the first chance that she gets. asad asks him to tell clearly what happened. Ayan says that nikhat suffered a severe trauma, and thay have to act urgently or they shall lose her. Asad hugs ayan and composes him saying that nikhat would be safe and that he would give his life to have smile on nikhat’s face. He asks ayan what happened. Zoya and ayan are tensed. ayan finally says that he has come here to ask something from him. Asad asks what.
Ayan says that for saving nikhat, he would have to give his bride to ayan. Asad eyes zoya, who’s shell shocked. Asad is in a state of shock and disbelief. Aayan and zoya are inconsolable, while asad eyes him angrily. Asda asks ayan if he knows whats he saying, and how is zoya connected to this. He goes to zoya and says that she had said that she knows ayan’s mistake, and holds her tightly and asks her whats ayan talking about. Zoya is in tears, and unable to speak. Zoya says that its a big mistake, from ayan and herself too. Ayan is tensed. Ayan says that they both werent at fault in this. Asad loses his temper and asks whats this mistake then. Ayan talks to asad and zoya, and says that destiny has played a cruel game with them. He tells that he and zoya got married accidentally, without consent nd without knowledge of the same. asad is shocked and asks zoya if this is true. zoya confirms his worst fears. Ayan tries to speak, but asad, in his anger, pushes ayan and pins him against the wall. Zoya is crying incoherently.
Asad slams his hand against the window pane of glass, shocking zoya, and ayan collapses on the floor. Ayan says that he knows that he is guilty but asad is the only person who can save nikhat’s life, and tells about haseena’s descision. Asad is angered and is breaking around things. Ayan reminds him that he had told that he never distinguished between nikhat and nazma, and had nazma been there, what would he have done.
Asad says that he doesnt know whats he asking for, as had he asked for his life, he wouldnt have minded, but he’s asking for something that dearer to him than life. Ayan says that he understands and says that they shall only pretend to have this marriage, till nikhat gets married to farhan. ayan says that this isnt a true marriage, and that this was just a mistake and would forever be one, only for nikhat. He says that they have no other option left, and asks asad to consider only for nikhat.

Mamu tries to tell razia that they would have to agree to bear the consequences now, of ayan’s mistake, as the priest and the society accepts it. Razia says that they can accept as that ill mannered zoya, as ayan’s wife, and asks him to think about humaira. Mamu says that they would have to digest the bitter truth and so would humaira.

rashid is shocked to hear shirin’s proposal. she asks him not to forget, that what ayan has done a mistake, then zoya too has done the same. Rashid says that asad can go and talk sense into haseena, instead of torturing zoya.
She says thats not possible as its already gone out of limits, as even if haseena agrees, the society wont accept it, and they wouldnt be able to face the people. She says that all would say that the elder brother is marrying the younger’s bride. She says that they dont have any other option out, other than zoya coming here.
All are tensed. Shirin says that all important people are coming here, and what if zoya wasnt here to greet them. She also reminds how haseena would insult them, and nikhat wont ever be able to get married. She pleads rashid. Badi bi says that asad wont ever agree, but ayan says that he would, as asad can sacrifice not only his happiness but also his life for nikhat. All are shocked. Razia, hearing this from a distance, is tensed.

Zoya says that she doesnt want to leave this house, or him, as she cant imagine stayiing without them. Asad asks if she believes in their love. (MITWA)Zoya is speechless. He holds her hand, while remembering their past romantic moments and she asks him to let go of her hand. Asad takes her by the hand, and while’s she’s crying incoherently, he walks out their door, while remembering the moments shared and promises made to each other and comes amidst the guests and family, and walks out the main door with zoya.

The priest and other influential members of the society reprimand rashid that they have made a joke of marriage and the pious institution. rashid says that its their internal matter, and they would solve it. but he is countered by the fact, that the marriage that happened in the community center, amongst a huge crowd, isnt an internal matter anymore, and if they take it lightly, then this would be a communal matter. Haseena says that ayan did very wrong with asad, as a brother, and she cant associate herself with a house like this, as she wont be enemies with Rashid says that its not that big a deal.
haseena asks him to get asad and let him say that he agrees to this. chandbi asks why’s she so bothered. Haseena says that this is intentional, so that nikhat is insulted so badly, that none wants to marry her, and then her being the only prospective relation, she can take anything in return to marry farhan with her. Chandbi is amused. Rashid and ayan and mamujaan dont have answers to any questions posed by them. They reprimandingly ask ayan where’s his bride, zoya. All are tensed while ayan is speechless. Just then, asad barges in announcing that zoya’s here. All are shocked, while humaira is stunned. He brings a distraught zoya amongst them, and looks at ayan, who is standing helplessly.
Asad lets go of zoya’s hand, and makes her stand next to ayan. But as he turns away, zoya clutches tightly at asad’s hand, who loks at ayan, and lets go of zoya’s hand with a jerk. haseena asks whats he doing. asad says that she understod correctly, as she called off farhan’s relation due to ayan’s betrayal, as nothing of that sort happened, and that none should be blamed for this. Asad says that a wife’s rightful place is with her husband, and that the marriage has happened, and zoya is in her rightful place, with ayan. zoya is unbelievably sad and distraught, while asad tries hard to control his emotions, and maintains a strong stance.
Location: Ayan’s residence
The priest asks ayan if he agrees to the fact that zoya is his wife. While all are tensed, and humaira is distraught and waiting for his answer, ayan looks helplessly at asad. Shirin, rashid and razia look helplessly. The priest asks again. Ayan nods his head in a yes. All are shocked. Ayan turns to humaira, who is distraught and runs inside. Ayan goes after her, while razia looks angrily. She locks the door, after getting in the room, while ayan keeps asking her to open the door. Razia talks to him, and asks how many more times is he going to hurt her, and reminds him of humaira’s condition, but still he doesnt stop to hurt her. Ayan says that everything was right between them and that they were to get married, but something wrong
happened. Razia is surprised.
In her room, razia wonders how did all this happen, and asks mamujaan to do something and stop her. He says that he too feel bad but he is helpless. She asks him to talk to the priest. He says that he would have triede that had that helped. He informs that the priest has to come for the marriage certificate to be signed. Razia is shocked. Razia says that this matter is worsening, and if the signs are done, then this would be fatal. He says that they would have to accept this. She says that he may but not her, as that means spoiling her daughter’s marriage, and that she wontr do, as she would only be happy with ayan. She says that she wont let a roadside girl, take away humaira’s happiness. He tries to show her that there’s no other option, but she stops him. She says that the certificate isnt signed yet, and what if at the same time, the divorce papers are also signed, and then the marriage would be annulled. She says that they would wait for sometime, for the matter to fie down, and then they would get rid of the girl. she assures him that this is the only option. She asks him to inform that this marriage would only be for some weeks. The servant informs them that the priest has arrived. They are surprised and tensed too.
Nikhat wakes up dizzily and tries to harm herself, by taking off the bandage, which had stopped the bleeding. She eyes a knife, remembering hasena’s words and is in tears. She manages her way to the table, and picks up the knife. She is determined to slit her wrists.
The priest is greeted by the other members, while all are tensed. Razia sees them and thinks that mamujaan didnt get the time to swap papers. She says that this means that these papers are for marriage. She says that if zoya stays back, then god knows what might happen and that she would have to stop the papers from being signed…
