He asks her to sign divorce papers. Anu says he is so shameless to seek divorce from his pregnant wife. Adi says she shouldn’t talk about shame, Malini is pregnant but not his wife, he wants everyone to know who his wife is, their divorce should have happened long ago, he doesn’t want any doubt in his wife’s mind and hence he wants to say that only his wife has right on him and his love. Tripathis rejoice and say he took a right decision. Anu asks Malini not to sign on any papers. Malini walks to Adi and signs divorce papers. Adi thanks her.

Imlie enters Malini’s room and hearing her speaking to someone over phone about about crowd at home asks if she called a kidnapper. Malini says she called her personal mehandi designer for Imlie’s first karva chauth celebration. Imlie says when there is no hidden camera here, why she is acting. Malini says she is not acting, why can’t she trust her. Imlie says until she exposes her in front of Adi, she will not trust her. Malini asks how to gain her trust. Imlie says she knows why she signed divorce papers. Malini says it used to hurt whenever Adi used to call their relationship as on papers, so she signed them; Imlie is right that she was acting as good girl. Imlie says she knew she hasn’t changed. Malini says she has changed, Dev’s words were true that Adi will come closer to her via this baby. Imlie asks if she will betray Adi again.
Malini says her baby is Adi’s blood and if she is so worried about her and baby, she should get out of their and Adi’s lives. Imlie says she will not give her most precious thing to a dacoit and will expose her truth. Malini asks if she thinks Adi will trust her. Imlie says let us see and walks out seeing Anu entering room. Anu praises Malini and says now she understood her plan.Rupali forcefully takes Mithi and Imlie to apply mehandi by designers. Anu gets angry and asks Mithi if she will write her murderer husband’s name on her hand. Dulari and Imlie try to frighten her. Malini enters with mehandi. Aparna asks why is she straining herself. Malini says even she wants mehandi applied. Aparna asks designer to apply mehandi on Malini first.
Malini grins at Imlie. Imlie walks away. Adi in his room tries to write Imlie’s name on his hand. Sundar enters and starts his jokergiri. Adi requests not to inform anyone. Sundar brings Harish, Pankaj, and Nishant and after much drama asks them to write their wives’ name on their hand like Adi. They agree. Adi walks away and noticing Imlie walks to her. Imlie says he should believe that Mailni hasn’t changed. Adi says Malini already signed divorce papers. Imlie says Malini wants to reclaim him via her baby, so she acted as signing divorce papers. Adi says she started again. She tries to convince him, but he says he already told her that a mother cannot do wrong with her baby, he cannot believe Malini will do anything wrong after signing papers. She says he doesn’t trust her without a proof, so she will get him a proof.
Adi looking at Imlie’s name on his hand thinks whenever he tries to get closer to her, a new misunderstanding arises.Ladies continue applying mehandi. Dulari says its difficult to stay without a husband, she is happy for them all and prays for their happy married life forever. Radha thanks her and asks everyone to write down their husband’s names. Rupali cries hearing that. Imlie asks her not to cry and write down a person’s name whom she loves, she suggests to write down actor Sidharth Malhotra’s name as she is fond of him. Rupali shies. Dulari asks designer to write down her husband’s name on it. Imlie sits next o Malini. Malini says she should have informed Adi and he wouldn’t have trusted her. Rupali asks Imlie to write down Adi’s name on her hand.
Malini gets Adi’s name written on her hand and waving it at Imlie tries to leave. Imlie shouts stop. Whole family gathers. Malini asks if she wants same mehandi design. Imlie shows Malini’s hand to Adi and asks why is Adi’s name written on Malini’s hand.Imlie shows Adi’s name on Malini’s hand with mehandi and questions her. Aparna questions her next. Malini nervously says she doesn’t know how Adi’s name came on her hand without her knowledge. Rupali alleges that she purposefully did it. Malini asks mehandi designer if she asked her to write any name on her hand. Designers says she wrote a name she wrote during Malini’s wedding. Malini tells Adi that designer visits her since years and she must have remembered his name, its a genuine mistake. Anu gets angry on Malini next.
Malini stops her and apologizes Imlie saying she didn’t inform anyone about her divorce except family. Adi sys its a genuine mistake. Imlie argues that Malini is lying and purposefully got Adi’s name scribed on her hand. Adi asks if she means even mehandi designer is lying. Imlie continues shouting. Rupali supports her. Malini says she will wash her hands and clear mehandi. Ilie shouts at her to stop her drama. Adi shouts back to stop, he wanted to celebrate karva chauth with her peacefully and if she doesn’t want to, she shouldn’t spoil others’ festival. They both walk away in opposite direction while family watches in shock.
After sometime, Imlie with teary eyes inscribes Adi’s name as shahri langoor/city langoor with mehandi on her hand. Adi knocks door and brings her food. She says its his room. He says it belongs to her also now and shows her name on his hand. She says her last year’s mehandi was a curse on her as he didn’t want to marry her then and now its a blessing for her, their relationship is her pride, etc. He says even he respects their relationship. She asks what if his friend betrays him and is his enemy. Adi says she considers Malini as enemy and thinks Malini can separate them, she should change this perception or else their relationship will be ruined. She says he is not listening to her even now. He says even if Malini scribes his name on her hand, he won’t become Malini’s; she should forget everything and move on.
She asks how can she forget everything, she still remembers a morning when Malini opened his room door and spent night with him; she got him proof and he deleted it trusting Malini’s mother instead of her; she will forget that Malini is his baby’s child, but cannot forget that night; he should get alert and realize that Malini will betray her. He asks what shall he do when she trusts Malini more than him, he already divorced Malini and what else he can do. She asks him to send her to her parent’s house and continues. He says he cannot do that because of Imlie’s insecurities.
Malini walks in with her bag and says she herself will leave his house. Imlie asks if she was listening to them hiding. Malini says everyone can hear their discussion outside, she doesn’t want to them to fight and hence going from his house. He angrily walks away. She acts as stopping them, then changes her facial expression and greets bye to Imlie. Imlie says she will not visit her to bring her back and will celebrate karva chauth with her and not Imlie. Malini challenges her that Adi will himself bring her back to his house and walks away smirking. She reaches T house where Anu asks if she left Adi’s house and she says Imlie wanted to kick her out of house, so she herself walked out and will make sure Adi takes her back.
Imlie calls Mithi and asks if Malini reached there. Mithi says yes, she looks very happy. Imlie asks her to take care of Malini and her baby. Mithi asks who will take care of her. Imlie asks not to worry about her. Mithi reminds she needs to celebrate karva chauth with Adi tomorrow. Malini determines to spoil Imlie’s karva chauth celebration.Next morning, Imlie wakes up hearing alarm and thinks of having sargi/fasting food. She checks if Adi woke up hearing alarm and doesn’t find him on bed. She searches him and finds him sleeping on living room sofa, cries thinking he slept outside angry on her, she will start afresh tonight forgetting everything as Maliini is not here. Malini calls Adi’s number. Imlie walks into kitchen where Aparna, Radha, and Rupali are having sargi.
Rupali ask her to join them. Imlie says she will have it later. Aparna says they women need to fast whole day and should support each other. Imlie asks if they are not angry on her for yesterday’s drama. Aparna says its very difficult for a wife to stay with her sautan and if Imlie thinks her and Adi’s relationship is affected because of Malini’s presence, she will support her. Imlie starts crying seeing her support. Rupali says this is a first year where she is not crying remembering Pranav, thanks to her soul sister Imlie for that.Anu waits for breakfast. Dev asks where is her breakfast. She claps, and Mithi brings food. Dev says she wants to trouble Mithi. Mithi asks to call Malini for breakfast.
Dev asks if Malini is here. Anu says no and warns Mithi to stop her lies and concentrate on food as she didn’t add salt in dinner. Mithi says she is fasting. Dev asks Anu not to insult Mithi’s fasting. Anu asks if she is fasting for Dev who left her years ago or Dev whom she is married and not with her. Mithi says she and Satyakam are miles apart and will meet soon, but where thinking doesn’t match in a relationship, it doesn’t prosper.
