Imlie 23 June 2023: Chini refuses to marry Jatin. Everyone are shocked to hear that. Atharva who was about to leave stops hearing that. Anu smirks. At Rana house, Shivani tells Devika that she must be thinking that she is not supporting her with Atharva’s wedding, that’s because Atharva is going through the same situation which she went through years ago, Atharva doesn’t love Imlie and can’t be happy in a loveless marriage. Jatin’s parents asks Narmada what is happening. Chini cannot marry Jatin as she doesn’t love him. Jatin’s mother says she can love Jatin after marriage. Chini tells Jatin he should understand that their marriage will not continue when she doesn’t love him at all. Jatin’s father says she should have said that before and not at the wedding mandap. He confronts Sundar for humiliating him and his family in front of the whole world.
Rupali alleges Chini that she wanted to humiliate them in front of the whole world by breaking alliance just before wedding. Chini says she already informed Rupali, but she didn’t listen to her and is so selfish not to bother about her happiness. Rupali raises her hand in anger. Imlie stops Rupali and asks Chini if she really doesn’t want to marry Jatin. Chini says when she doesn’t have any feelings for Jatin, how can she be his partner; she knows Imlie agreed to marry Arto as she feels for him. She asks Atharva if he loves Imlie. Atharva stands speechless. Keya asks Akash to speak something. Akash asks Sundar and Arpita if this the sankars they gave to their daughters, his family would face humiliation if Imlie refuses to marry Atharva at the mandap, he needs to inform about it to Rudra. Arpita requests him to calm down and asks Imlie to convince Chini for marriage.
Imlie says Chini will not marry as its good Chini realized her mistake before a bigger disaster, its difficult to lead a loveless life, etc. She tells Jatin’s parents its better to break an alliance before marriage than leading a forceful marriage. Jatin’s parents criticize Narmada for her granddaughters’ wrong upbringing and say Imlie was acting silent till now and opened her mouth at the wrong time. Jatin requests his parents to stop and tells Chini that he had started loving her, but she did right by stopping the wedding at the right time and stopping their lives ruined in the future. He leaves with his parents.
Anu praises Chini for taking a right decision. Rupali confronts Chini and ays Jatin is the right match for her and she will not find a better match than Jatin. Chini says she doesn’t have to search as her soul mate will himself walk to her. Atharva walks to Chini while Akash tries to stop him and tries to hold Chini’s hand when Imlie takes Chini from there. He feels proud of Chini for taking a stand for herself and Imlie for openly supporting her sister. Keya and Akash return home and inform Rudra that Chini called off her wedding, now its difficult to control Atharva. Rudra gets angry hearing that. Akash says he thinks Chini did it purposefully sensing Atharva’s love for her as Atharva was looking at her emotionally during her wedding. Rudra says Chini is oversmart than he thought and would misuse Atharva for his wealth.
Narmada angrily breaks things to vent out her frustration after bearing humiliation because of Chini. Anu enjoying juice says what is wrong if Chini took a stand for herself. Rupali asks if she brainwashed Chini and says she shifted to Aryan’s house to protect Chini from Anu’s wrong upbringing, but she failed today after sacrificing her whole life for Chini. Anu yells and verbally abuses Rupali. Arpita warns Anu to stop abusing her family. Their argument ensues. Imlie requests them to stop for Chini’s sake as Chini is very upset. Anu stops. Arpita tells Imlie that its good that she took a stand for her sister, but she should now concentrate on her wedding and her in-laws forgetting all the worries about her maika.
Chini thtiinks what Arto wants. Arto throws a note in her room asking her to meet him tomorrow evening at a temple. Chini feels happy thinking Arto wants to marry her tomorrow itself. She signals thumbs up to Arto, and he feels happy. Imlie carries food towards Chini’s room worried for her and gets happy seeing Atharva standing outside and thinking he came to meet her. She enters room and looks at Atharva via window and gets disheartened seeing him looking at Chini instead.
Imlie notices Atharva outside her house and thinks he must have come to meet her, but its not good to go out at this time and hence she will go to her room and speak to him. She enters room and notices him leaving. She finds Atharva’s note asking to meet him at a temple tomorrow evening and feels happy thinking its for her. Chini feels happy thinking her fate is clear now, it would be brighter than Imlie after marrying Atharva. On the other side, Devika, Shivani, and Divya select jewelry to gift it to Imlie for her first karva chauth ritual. Keya says even a small chain would be good for Imlie as her dressing style is so down market and this class jewelry is too heavy for her. Devika says a diamond is a diamond whether its wrapped in a cotton or silk cloth. Shivani says Imlie is more precious than this jewelry. Keya says they used to treat her similarly when she got married, but now Imlie is their favorite and she feel being cheated.
Shivani says even they thought the brought a daughter home, but.. Devika stops her. Shivani says even they are cheated like her. Atharva passes by. Divya shows him jewelry they selected for Imlie. Atharva thinks everyone are happy, but every confusion will clear in a few hours.Next morning, Devika with Divya, Keya, and Shivani visit Rathore mansion and gift jewelry to Imlie. Imlie says their blessing was enough for her. Keya murmurs they wasted such a precious jewelry on Imlie. Chini walks in. Imlie asks her to come and check her jewelry. Chini says its her jewelry, so she herself should check it. Imlie says she can give suggestion to match the jewelry with her dresses as she has a better fashion sense. Anu enters and says Imlie should have a sense that Chini’s marriage was cancelled yesterday and she is in tears.
Keya says Chini herself canceled that wedding. Chini acting emotional asks Imlie to select her jewelry herself and not bother about her. She asks even Anu to worry about her, takes her to her room, and reveals that Arto expressed his love for her and hence she canceled her alliance with Jatin. Anu gets happy hearing that and says her in-laws are showering gifts and blessings on Imlie though and Imlie is flying high in her hopes. Chini says she needs only their money and not blessings and will make sure Atharva doesn’t back off. She messages Atharva to confirm their meeting in the evening.
Atharva gets Chini’s message and replies that they surely are meeting. Rudra bumps on him and his phone falls down. Atharva gets tensed and tries to pick phone hurriedly. Rudra picks phone and seeing Imlie’s call smiling says he should pick it. Atharva relaxes. Rudra tells Shivani that Atharva has reformed himself. Imlie speaks to Atharva and thanks him for sending her so many gifts. Atharva says its her mom’s gifts. Imlie says he would have given him gifts tonight also, but she would have fear accepting them in front of everyone. Atharva says a time to fear is gon now and they need not fear. He disconnects call and feels guilty for playing with Imlie’s feelings.
Chini tries Imlie’s jewelry. Imlie walks in and says she knows truth. Chini gets nervous and thinks if Atharva revealed truth to her. Imlie says she knows Chini cares a lot for her and is selecting jewelry and matching dress for her, forgetting her own sorrows. Chini selects her jewelry and derss and says she need not worry about her as she is different. Imlie says Chini is brave and offers her haar/necklace to keep. Imlie says she will win for sure and Imlie can keep the haar/defeat to herself. She returns necklace and walks away. Rupali walks in and says Chini is behaving weird. Imlie says Chini is normal. Rupali asks her to get ready and visit Atharva. Imlie gets nervous thinking Atharva must be waiting for her at a temple.
Atharva eagerly waits for Chini at a temple and hopes his hookline comes soon. Chini walks in. Tere Bin Ab Na Lenge Ek Bhi Dam.. song plays in the background. Atharva thanks god for listening to his prayers. Chini thinks Athrava is a ticket for her becoming super rich and leading a luxurious life. She greets him and starts acting emotional saying he must be thinking she is selfish to cancel her wedding for love going against her family. He says he liked her bold behavior and likes her. She acts and asks what about Imlie. He describes how many times he tried to express his love for her and finally says I love you. Chini acts more emotional. Imlie reaches temple with Arpita and slips.
