I do update 22 December 2021: Just as humaira is about to put the ring on ayan’s finger, nikhat, shocked after seeing the video, looks at razia’s happy face asking humaiar to put the ring, stops ayan from extending her finger, much to everybody’s amazement.
Razia reprimands her for such audacity to stop the engagement. Haseena asks if everything is alright. Razia cites it as childish behaviour. Razia asks ayan to put the ring on humaira’s finger. rashid asks nikhat whats the matter and if she wants to say anything. She says if they could talk inside. Shirin and mamu say that its indecent to leave from here, in the middle of the ritual, and that they can talk about whatever she wants to in fron tof the family. Razia asks her to step back sternly.
Ayan too stands up saying that she shouldnt fear anything as he’s with her. Haseena says that her doubt was right that something is wrong, therefore the hasty engagement. Razia comes up saying that she’s very disappointed in her behaviour and takes her forcibly inside. Nikhat breaks down saying that she can prove that nothing happened between ayan and humaira. Eveerybody is shocked.
Rashid’s mother too breaks down the glass window to come out of the locked room.
Razia tries to forcibly take her inside, but nikhat continues that she’s absolutely fine and tries to show the video proving ayan and humaira’s innocenec. In the commotion, the phoen flies off from nikhat’s hand and rashid grabs it and sees the video, while razia tries to keep telling him to keep the video aside and start the engagement.
Rashid’s mother too comes out of the room.
Shirin and rashid are relieved to find that their children are pure after all, and nothing happened between them and asks razia if she isnt happy to find that. Razia says that they shouldnt create a drama in front of the guests as the video has nothing to do with this engagement. Rashid says that there indeed is a relation between them as they wewre forced to get into this relation due to this only, and that now it wouldnt happen. Razia tries to repimand rashid for making such a joke. Rashid’s mother says that not rashid, but she’s the one who played a joke on everyone int his family.
Mamu is angry as to whats happening in the house, which is making them the butt of jokes, when they used to be the most respected in the whole of bhopal. He reprimands nikhat for creating such a drama. But rashid’s mother says that nikhat is not the one to be blamed, but his own wife, razia. She says that this whole plan is by razia. Razia pretends to feign ignorance and horror to at her accusation, but rashid’s mother tries to put light on what had actually happened. unable to take it any longer, mamu asks rashid’s mother to tell them everything clearly. She tells mamu as to how razia had concocted this plan all along, and feigned to have saved her daughter’s respect by tainting it herself by her evil plan to get the engagement done, and she had locked her in the old storage so that she wouldnt try and interfere in what she wanted for humaira.
Location: Asad’s residence
Asad looks lost on the roof. zoya joins him to give him the paste. zoya says that she thanked but didnt get a chance to say sorry since mangalpur. When asad asks what is she sorry about, she says that she’s sorry for everything and most of all for the fact that he wanted to spend some time alone without her, but she didnt allow that too. She is also sorry for everything else that makes him irritated at her. She tells him that she’s got a paste for him for healing his wounds. Asad refuses for her paste.
They therefore spark off into a verbal arguement, again about who is orthodox and who is modern and what is the definition for the two terms. While zoya accuses him of being traditional, asad says that she’s modern in just her clothes. Asad and zoya again get into one of their petty fights, wherein asad asks her to leave his house as soon as possible and not think about making this her own.
Zoay retorts back saying that she only puts her name on things that are actually hers, and not like him, who goes around engraving her name on his hand, pointing out to the cut in his hand, that looks like a Z, the initial letter of Zoya. She says that she would leave the house as soon as she can, and till then she would try and stay away from him, asad too thanks her for that because for him, that meant he’s staying away from trouble. Zoay goes down in frustration.
zoya is being reprimanded for having lost her i card, cell phone , atm etc by her brother in law. She assures him that she owuld get them back soon. Just then, asad too enters and is given coffee by nazma. After the call, zoya tells naazma that she’s going out and that she should tell dilshad about this. Nazma is a bit worrie that she’s going out so late but zoya tells her that she would come home soon and that she shouldnt worry. After she leaves, asad is very worried.
Razia still preteneds to be ignorant, but rashid’s mother says that she wouldnt bear with her drama anymore like all the years that she has done already, since its the question of her grandson after all. Mamu says that though its clear that ayan and humaira are innocent but why does she resist this relation so much, when everybody agrees to it. Rashid’s mother says that only the two children dont agree to this relation.
Mamu says that now she’s crossing the line by mentioning that humaira doesnt agree to this relation, since she tried to give her life when ayan said no. rashid’s mother clears that she gave up her life because she coudlnt bear what her mother had done. Razia again pretends to be shocked to see that she’s being accused for leading her daughter to suicide.
Finally shirin interferes saying that they should ask humaira only as to whats her opinion on this and if she wants to get married to ayan. Humaira remembers ayan’s words to her and razia’s threats too. while the whole family waits for her to answer, she is highly tensed as to what to say. The screen freezes on her tensed face.
On receiving a call on the landline, asad gets up to take the call, but nzma intercepts in between. When asad asks who it was, she said it was for someone’s delivery. Asad is anxiously strutting around.
When zoya arrives, asad calls her and gives her the parcel for her cell phone that she hd reported stolen. As he goes away, zoya confronts asad saying that she knows he thinks that she’s helpless. He says that he doesnt but yes he does feel sorry for what happened at mangalpur to her for which he was partly to be blamed and that this act could lessen his guilt a little. As he leaves, zoya thinks to herself that asad can be really manipulative and insensitive to others feeling, and remembers how he had ridiculed her on several occassions. She thinks that asad wants everyone to just listen to him quietly.
She goes to his room and decides to refuse to accept the phone that he had given her. She is shocked to find that asad didnt put up a much of a fight against her, as is normally the case. While going out, she trips over and finds herself in asad’s arms who grabs her to stop her from falling. She composes herself and walks out, leaving asad thinking that he has to stay away from zoya to avoid any trouble.
Asad comes out of his room and is shocked to find mariam’s relatives but is relieved when he knows that they havent told dilshad anything. As she goes to attend to a call, mariam’s faather asks asad to look out for mariam, as she’s headed this way to bhopal. He also says that though he had saved zoya, and they dont have a problem with that but they are after mariam. He says that they have the faith that he wont help mariam but have a doubt that the foreign retruened zoya would. Telling asad to look out for maraiam and tell them anything that he knows, thy take asad’s and dilshads’ leave. Asad finds zoya coming out of the room, and having already told mariam’s relatives that she’s gone, he grbs her behind a pillar and puts a hand on zoya’s mouth to stop her from speaking. After they have left, while zoya continues to keep demanding for the reason for such behaviour, he goes in his room without answering.
Location: Asad’s residence
Razia tries to defend humaira saying that when ayan has profusely said no to the marriage, then how could humaira say no and what if she says yes, would the family agree for it then. Ayan asks razia to stop talking and let humaira speak for herself.
Razia demands to know that if humaira said yes to the relation, would ayan marry her. ayan is left speechless but finally manages to say that humaira would never say no. Mamu asks ayan to give a direct answer. Ayan agrees that if humaira says yes, then he too wont have a problem. Shirin asks humaira not to be scared and give her answer. humaira remembers ayan’s flirting with her, but razia confronts her to say yes, as that is what she always wanted and that this is the chance to grab it. Humaira finally says yes, much to ayan and rashid’s mother’s horror and razia’s pleasure, but then completes her statement that she doesnt want to marry ayan, relieving him and his granny of their misery and shocking razia.
In his room, ayan thanks nikhat for saving him from getting the punishment for a crime that he never committed. Rashid and his wife come in apologizing to him for their mistake and say that they would never prejudge him again. Rashid’s mother too comes in saying that it wont happen again since they would leave the house. Shirin asks her to forgive razia. But rashid’s mother is adamant that what razia did wasnt a mistake but a premeditated conspiracy, which made them doubt their own son and behave so badly to them. Ayan too says that they wouldnt suffer anymore due to mamujaan and leave the house definitely.
Zoya is shocked to find asad coming out of his room. As asad approaches zoya, she starts behaving crazily about falling stars in the sky. He leaves without saying anything. After he’s gone, she calls out to mariam, who says that she’s very hungry.
while mariam eats in the kitchen, zoya asks what would she do now. Mariam says that she has already talked to her brother who will take her to dubai. Zoya tells her that she should know that noone here knows mariam didnt get married or she was helped in running off by zoya. She also tells her that asad shouldnt know about this at all. When mariam asks for more food, zoya starts filling up her plate with rice. dilshad sees this and asks if she’s hungry. She says that yes she is, while mariam hides behind the fridge. dilshad is send off to her room by zoya in haste. After dilshad is gone, zoya gives mariam the food saying that she would have to hide in the store room till her brother comes to get her, and that asad shouldnt at all know that zoya’s helping her in this.
Asad cant get sleep remembering mariam’s dad’s words. As he stays awake, he finds the silhouette of two people from the curtains and is surprised.
Zoya hides mariam in the store room, apologizing that she doesnt have a better option for her to stay, since she just got a reminder from asad in the morning only. Mariam says that any place is better than the place her parents were sending her to. Zoya says that soon all this would be over and she would have a big house, where when zoya comes to meet her, would definitely come and stay in her store room.
Asad asks zoya, standing outside the store room about the noise but is warded off by her, engaging him in pointless arguements, to go and sleep as its getting late. Just then mariam, hiding in the store room steps on the radio which starts blaring out music and much to zoya’s horror, asad notices it and demands to know what and who is playing the music. Mariam stops the music. When asad asks about the song, zoya pretends that she didnt hear anything. he begins to go the store room but zoya stops him saying that she didnt hear anything, and he must have due to excess stress and asking him to take rest, tells him to go and sleep. After he’s gone, zoya too leaves. As she leaves, asad again comes back to the store room.
Location: Ayan’s residence
Nikhat says that she too feels very bad when rashid has to listen to mamu quietly with bowed heads. Shirin tries to explain that they too are a part of family. But rashid’s mother says that mamu has just done a compromise with them and not considered them as family. She tells rashid to go and tell their descision to mamu.
Rashid goes to razia’s room to talk to her. Razia says that she knows what he wants to taalk about and what would be her response at that. She says that he cant leave this house even if he wants to. Rashid says that he wants to just live with his family in peace. Razia says that a person may desire anything, but gets only whats in his fate, that which is written by himself as he has done. She says that now if he leaves, then he wouldnt live in peace but rot in jail and leaves it on him to decide. Rashid says that he has given 17 years of his life to them and their business, and asks her to free him now. Razia says that he’s free till he’s in the house. And that if he tries to leave, then she would also have to take the required step, saying that she hopes he understands. As rashid leaves disgusted, razia thinks that he’s trapped in her conspiracy, and she cant let him leave, since if he does, then the world will know that he may have committed the crime, but also that she herself was the mastermind behind the crime and she can never risk that.
Ayan says to humaira that they might be getting seperated due to his going from the house, but they would forever be together. he thanks her for what she did today by saying no. She asks what if she said yes. Ayan jokingly says that then he would have faced this punishment with her wholeheartedly. Humaira too says jokingly that she’s not an idiot to marry him. After he leaves, she is in tears and is surprised to find nikhat watching him. She tries to make stories about ayan’s flirty nature. But nikhat asks him point blank about her love for humaira saying taht she can lie to the whole world but not her as she knows that she loves him dearly, so much that she was willing to give her life for him. Humaira breaks down saying that she might, but he doesnt love her back. nikhat offers to talk to ayan, but humaira stops her saying that she can live like this, but never accept her love in front of ayan and that her first love would always be incomplete.
