Lies of the heart 7 September 2020: Damini is shocked and outraged at urmi’s announcement, as she confronts damini defiantly. Urmi comes to diya and tells her that she shall become her daughter in law. Shaurya is upset. urmi says that not out of disgust, but with happiness, with dignity and full self esteem and respect, she shall marry diya with shaurya.
the ladies are embarassed but dont say anything. All are out of theirt wits at this sudden announcement. Diya says that she spoke highly a little too soon, and she respects it, but she doesnt believe that a marriage shall bring up her self respect, and she doesnt need a character certificate in the form of marriage, and there are lots of girls, who are single mothers and successful, and that marriage isnt the deciding factor for her, and she doesnt need to marry just to prove a point to the society. urmi asks her not to take it wrong, but what she said today was out of her heartfelt emotions.
Diya says that she understands, but shaurya stops her, saying that urmi knows it most of all, that for marriage, love is needed. Shaurya tells urmi that they both dont love each other, then how can she even think of marrying them both to each other. urmi doesnt know what to tell shaurya. Damini is amused as she eyes them evilly, having a tiff. Sandhya and anirudh are tensed. diya is apalled. the ladies comment that she got rejected yet again. Shaurya says that its their internal matter, and he doesnt need to marry to prove them wrong. He says that diya is an independant woman, and can do far better than settling for marriage. The ladies say that its just a disguised way of rejection. urmi asks her not to deliberately twist his words, as they dotn have to prove her or damini anything. all stand tensed.
In her room, diya is apalled thinking what happened. sandhya comes in with dessert for her, and cheers her up, but finds that she is upset. She tries to give diya a taste of the dessert that svhe made for her and in celebration of her victory. She asks what happened. diya says that she remembers her mother, as she used to share her happiness and sorrows with mother, but cant today. Sandhya asks her to call her up, diya says that she tried but noone received. sandhya asks her to try once more, as mothers cant be angry for too long.
she makes diya dial once again. She complies, knowing that she wont pick up. But this time around, diya’s mother does, and is unperturbed that its diya.Diya happily says that she won the case, and they wont be embarassed due to her anymore, as the criminals got punished. Her mother says that she doesnt know hwr. diya asks her if she is still angry with her. She says that she isnt their daughter and discnnects. diya is apalled and breaks bitterly into tears. sandhya consoles her saying that she is her mother and wont be angry for long, and tells her that she isnt alone, as they are all here for her.
Shaurya in his room, tells urmi that he doesnt want to marry. He asks her why is she forcing this. Urmi comes to him and asks for how long, he shall continue running from his past and asks him to move on, as the past is gone and asks him to forget. He says that he didnt forget anything, even if he wants to. she says that she knows, as a mother, but asks him to let bygones be so, and asks him to focus on his future, as diya is a nice girl. He says that she is, but not his love. she asks him who is the love of his life, and what kind of girl would he like. she insists, and he starts explaining exactly diya, but oblivious about it, as he draws a literal character sketch of diya, and ends that she shopuld have all the qualities that urmi herself has. urmi is set to thinking, and then says that the girl that he just described matches their diya perfectly. shaurya is shocked. She leaves asking him to think about it, while he is boggled. he remembers what he said, and how everey character trait matches diya’s personality perfectly.
The next morning, diya comes down on being summoned by damini, as she talks to a real estate agent, as he draws up housing options for damini. She introduces diya tauntingly to the person. The person says that everyone knows her, as she is in the news. Anirudh asks her who is this, and damini says that she is finding hosue options for diya. the person says that such a famous girl wont be put on rent so easily. damini taunts and says that the girl might be anything, but they need a place for her. he says that it shall cost more.
she complies. Diya tries to talk, but she is shut. Damini tells diya that she doesnt have the right to ask questions here. she asks diya to go and pack her bags without questions, as she should have come herself, saying thanks for their help, and now she is leaving. but since she didnt, hence she herself is doing it now, and hasa also arranged for a wonderful house for her. She then gives money to the person, while anirudh intervens.
Anirudh shouts at her, asking whats going on, and then sends the person away. damini asks whats he doing, while he says that diya is home and shall not go anywhere. Shaurya comes asking whats happening. Damini says that she too wants to know exactly the same. Anirudh says that diya is at home, and she shall not go. damini says that had it been someone else, she would have thrown her out, but due to diya, she is giving respect, but asks them not to try her patience. He asks what happiness she gets out of insulting diya, as yesterday with her friends wasnt enough, today she is doing it with a stranger. She says that she has some respect in the society and diya has tarnished it completely. he asks if she even knows what respect is, as it isnt materialistic, which is got only by giving it to others. he asks if she doesnt feel ashamed.
She points that diya should be ashamed, and then asks what rigth is she staying here still, as she is noone to anyone in the house. shaurya tries to speak, but damini shuts her asking who is he to the house, as he too is a stranger, and how can he vouch for another stranger in front of her. Anirudh asks her to shut up, while shaurya is distraught. urmi asks whats her problem. damini says that she has a problem, but she wont answer to urmi, as she doesnt consider her too that relevant to her life. Urmi asks why is she making an issue. damini says that her whole family is an issue, and that she doesnt have a right to say anythingm as this is her house, and she is just an unwelcome guest. She asks urmi to get lost, and take the girl also with her, if she has that much of a problem.
Damini shoves diya and urmi catches her, asking has she gone mad, and damini says that indeed she has. Anirudh says that she wont send diya anywhere else to live, at a stranger’s place, as noone would let her live, and that diya shall stay here. damini taunts him for being so noble, and that he doesnt care for what happens in the society. He says that he cares for diya more. She asks about ishaani. He asks her not to change the topic. diya asks them both to stop fighting for her, as damini is right, addressing her as badi Maa, saying that she should go. damini turns around and screams at her, asking her not to draw any relation to herself, as she isnt her mother. damini says that her own boyfriend left, and now she is trapping men of her family.
she tells that diya has some magioc spell, that has caught two men in her trap, one’s shaurya and now even her husband, anirudh is talking for her. he asks her to shut up, for the lord’s sake. Damini comments that if diya is so interested in males, then she should go and sit and start to present herself in a brothel, as that shall fulfill the hobby too and shall earn good money too. He gets furious and slaps her tight across the face, shocking them all, while damini is utterly humiliated.

For the next dress trial, ishaani herself makes him wear it, and they both feel the electric sprak, while he is amused, as she blushes. she then retreats aftre having done the trials. He says that he is done for the day and is about to leave, when he comes to ishaani, and then untangles her hair free and loose from the clutcher in her hair, and says that he likes it like this, referring to her as Ishi. she is in a romantic dream world, that she imagines for herself and akash.
Location: Urmi’s residence
Diya says that damini is right as she has a social circle, and that after the case is over, she can fend for hsrelf now. urmi refuses saying that anirudh is right, as she cant be left alone in a situation like this. Just then, ishaani comes bacl extremely happy. shaurya picks on it and asks her whats the matter. She asks him to call a better nick name, like Ishi. he understands that akash kumar’s blind love is getting on ishaani, and she blushes and goes inside.
A person called Sumit Prajapati comes with his family, while all are tensed as they dont know him. He introduces himself, while anirudh says that he didnt recognise them. he says that he has come here to accept diya’s hand in marriage, as he wants to marry her. they are all shocked, while diya is boggled herself. Shaurya says that they dont know him, and why this request all of a sudden. urmi stops and then asks them herself. Sumit’s father introduces themselves, and then they are seated. sumit says that he wants to explain. he says that diya isnt a stranger, and he has been following her case closely, and he has been vastly impressed by her confidence and determination.
Anirudh says that they look good and genuine, and they felt nice with the simplicity of the offer, and that the fact is they dont know about them much, and cant decide on marriage in a second. urmi says that diya is the daughter of this house. sumit’s father says that he understands the severity of the situation, and then asks them to enquire to their satisfaction about them, their family and their background and only then come to a decision. the mother says that they need diya asap, as sumit has selected a person with much difficulty. He gives anirudh his business card, saying that they shall wait for their response, after they confirm everything about him and the family. damini eyes them curtly.
on the roof, shaurya finds diya lost in thoughts, and comes to her. He asks whats she thinking, if such a stranger can come and ask for marriage. she complies, saying that she feels weird. he says that its right, and she can refuse if she wantss to, as it isnt a compromise or helplessness that she has to, as her happiness is paramount, and hence she always do that which makes her happy. she says that the biggest pain in life, is not heartbreak, but breaking of trust, and since thats done once, she doesnt want to take hasty decisions like this, and then finds him lost. She then asks him that she can see something in his eyes. he is taken aback, whether she sees feelings for her in his eyes. she asks if he has a wish. He is boggled. she shows him that his one of the hairs of the eyelashes has come out, and he shall be granted a wish for that. he is relieved and asks if she believes in this stuff.
she draws it out of the eyelid, and then gives it to him, while he takes in a stance, while she instructs him what to do next. he stares at her, while she excitedly tells him what to do. he says that he shall do it just for her, and then makes a wish. She asks him what he wished for. he addresses her as diya, and she is surprised. then he composes himself, saying that this is immature. She says that she hopes his wish comes true. He eyes her lovingly, while she smiels, and goes inside. He smiles to himself, wondering if whether he is in love.
Later, in the night, ishaani is torn between whether to send a message or not, and then decides against it. But just then, she gets his messagem, wishing her goodnight, calling her nickname. She is overjoyed and goes into a dream sequence with akash kumar.
The next morning, all settle down for breakfast. anirudh says that he enquired about the prajapatis and then found everything clean and that they are a nice and respectable family. sandhya and urmi are happy. They are all tensed, as suddenly damini’s voice calling out to diya, alarms them all. in front of everyone, damini apologises to diya for having said whatver she did the night earlier.
They are boggled and still unconvinced, while diya is tensed. shaurya is shocked at this sudden change. Diya asks her not to say all this, while damini is utterly apologetic about what she said, and says that she doesnt know what came over her. Diya says that its okay as she is elder. damini says that age dont make a person senior, but by the ideas, just like hers and her heart. and thanks diya for forgiving her. She has tears in her eyes, as she then addresses urmi and anirudh and apologises to them too. urmi says that seniors look good nto apologising but blessing the juniors.
Damini caresses diya and says that diya too is like ishaani for her, as the house, this family and the relations are hers too. Alok says that she got the permanent visa to stay here from now on. damini excitedly says that she should be very clear if she wants to marty this suitor or not, as noe her badi maa, shall see to it, that she goes with much pomp. She says that if she doesnt like it, then she should stay here, with them, as she belongs to them now, and can stay as long as she wants. Damini goes inside, while diya gets emotionally overwhelmed.
Location: Akash’s residence
Hurriedly ishaani reports to her job late, and akash’s designer gives her a thrashing that this isnt her college project that she can afford to be casual and frivolous. he then asks simran to be polite, as she must have been stuck in traffic. ishaani says that she reported late, since she couldnt sleep the whole night, not due to traffic. he interrupts the designer commenting that she is so cute and then asks her why she got so late. he addresses her as ishi, while she fumbles to say something. Just then, a married woman hollers out to Akash Kumar, and all look at her surprised.
the lady rudely talks to akash and asks him to come aside for sometime as she wants to talk right now. he asks her to wait while he wraps this up. but she rudely insiasts that its either right now, or else she shall talk right now, in front of all of them.
he is frustrated but keeps a composed face. He asks simran and ishaani to wait and then goes to the adjacent room with the lady. ishaani asks hesitatingly who is this, and simran answers that its his wife. She is shocked. they both hear sounds, of the wife being bossy and demanding to know every single detail of his time and money spent. simran sighs outside, narrting everything to ishaani, as to how he earns and yet she bosses him around, and ho its actually pathetic. Ishaani is severely disturbed, as she hears akash trying to mend things and asks her to calm down, from behind the room.
Location: Urmi’s residence
While diya is unpacking and arranging her wardrobe, she finds damini standing at the door. She asks her to come in. damini sys that she shall when she goes out. diya is boggled. damini comes and asks her when its time for her to leave, then why is she unpacking now. Diya asks confused. damini hollers at her saying that she is an idiot to even think that she could get an apology out of Damini Sinha, as what she saw down there was just a pretense. she says that if one urmi wasnt enough, now she has to deal with two noble characters in the house.
She tells diya that she is worse than urmi, as due to urmi, anirudh atleast never raised his hand on her, in front of everyone. Diya apologises, and she says that she doesnt need her apology, but needs her to get out of the house. She tells diya that she shall have to, as anirudh and urmi might have taken this as a tragedy victims’ shelter, but she wont do that, and definitely not with her. She says that diya shall have to ay for the slap that she got. Diya is tensed and distraught. damini tells diya evilly that anirudh and urmi wont let her go anywhere and she herself wont be willing to leave the house, hence she has other plans now. She asks diya to get ready to pack her bags and leave, as her marriage prospects are coming, and she should just accept the offer and leave.
Diya says that she shall go, but she wont marry hastily. damini says that she doesnt care but wants her out at any cost. damini also threatens that this should be between the two of them or else there shall be dire consequences and says that if diya doesnt act according to her, then she would harm her precious urmi and shaurya sir so badly, that she can even barely begin to imagine. Diya is apalled and asks how can she do that. damini says that she is indeed threatening her. She also warns diya not to even dare talk about this to anyone else, as she only wanted to earn points with urmi and anirudh and impress them, so that she wins their trust and after that she can go ahead with their plan.she asks her to be tight lipped about it, and then say yes when asked for marriage. she says that she has no idea to what level
she can stoop down, and asks diya tauntingly if she remembers the rape. Diya is distraught. damini leaves in a hush.
Meanwhile, shaurya is humming romantic numbers, when ishaani comes in teasing him about his change of behaviour and how it all indicates that he is in love. he is taken aback, as thats exactly what he has been deliberately denying. he is flustered as he asks her not to imagine things. She says that she is sure. he asks if she is an expert on love and then changes the topic asking her about her work. She says that the work is fine, and then points out what she heard earlier in the day. he wards it off not taking it seriously while she is pretty disturbed and advocates vehemently about akash’s torturous condition. he brands her as naive and blindly in love with akash. she gets angry and he teases her furthermore. deliberately pronouncing the actor’s name wrong.
Downstairs, as diya comes and joins them, anirudh, diya and sandhya are discussing about diya’s prospective suitor when he says that he did a thorough checkup, and found them highly respectable, and then to get a closer view first hand, he went to meet them. urmi is surprised. he says that they seem like the perfect family. damini comes pretending to be very concerned and lovable towards diya, saying that she shall agree to the marriage only when diya gives her consent, as otherwise it shall be rejected. diya is shaken.
Anirudh complies. He asks diya what is her decision. damini waits and then asks diya to be carefree and tell what she thought. She signals her to say yes, or else the consequences wont be good. Diya addresses her saying that its a big step and she needs a little time. damini is irritated but doesnt show. urmi says that she can take all the time she needs, as she should meet the guy and get to understand him, and then take a decision. Dita sits tensedly.
