Lies of the heart 5 September 2020: In her room, while ishaani is relaxing, damini comes and asks whats wrong with her, and why she intervened to stop diya from tying the rakhi to shaurya. ishaani asks whats wrong with her, as diya and shaurya are just friends. damini says that they would have have known for sure then.
Just then, ishaani’s phone rings, and she finds that its Akash Kumar on the line, who asks her to come to the offce at eleven, if she isnt busy. she is all gaga and in a state of starstruck bliss. he says that he has had a talk with the designer and she too is coming tomorrow. he says that since she had been promised by him, hence decided to call her himself. she is over the moon, as she tells this to damini and gets engrossed in preparing for her tomorrow’s meeting.
Downstairs, Diya wonders how wrong damini assumed about her. she says that the reason all of this is happening is because she has stayed here too long, and maybe now its time, for her to talk about karan with urmi and shaurya. shaurya comes in asking where is she lost, and asks what did she want to say. diya hesitates. urmi asks her to speak, up along with shaurya. Diya tells them what karan told her, that he agrees to marry her. damini comes jubiliantly saying that this is a wonderful news. she asks diya why is she so upset, and if she wants to marry someone else.
urmi asks the reason of her tension. Diya talks about karan’s condition to marry. shaurya and urmi are shocked. He says that marriage arent on bets. urmi asks how can she even consider this and fall weak now. she says that now that they are so close to victory and she wants to buckle under pressure.
She reminds diya that she was gangraped, and even after that, she decided to use her own identity, so as to set an example. She says that she is fighting for the society, herself and for everyone, to set an example. she asks how could she waiver in her decision just due to karan’s condition. she asks her to stop compromising as millions of women have, and asks her now not to fall weak. diya is extremely upset. damini taunts that she gave a wonderful lecture, and asks who is she to decide whats right and wrong, and what gave her the license to decide decisions in others’ life, intervening in everyone’s life.
She says that karan isnt wrong, as noone wants their bahu to be in the news for fighting a rape case, as people want to keep the women’s respect intact in the indian society. shaurya asks if karan’s mother herself told this to her. She denies. he asks what did she tell karan. Diya says that she said she would think and decide. karan comes in saying that she did get sometime from him. He says that he wants to marry her, and doesnt want to be implicated in court hearings forever, and that they should move on and start afresh. damini totally agrees.
he asks diya to take back her complaint, and then they can get married. Shaurya asks if he can get his mother here so that they can convince her. diya too asks karan to do that, as they are this close to victory. He asks whats bigger than marriage, as his mother has agreed with much problems, and now they want to get her here and bother her more. urmi asks whats the problem, if she comes here and they talk to her, as they are really close to victory and cant step back now.
Karan tells them that its enough now. diya asks him to mind his language. He asks how can she fight with him, for people who arent even related to her. Diya says that noone was there with her, when family and even he had deserted her, they were there by her side, and that the right is by the heart not due to relations, and hence they are her people. karan asks her to explain clearly if she shall go to the police station, as she shall have to decide if its him or the case. Diya says that first he had placed the condition and now he is giving the solution too. Diya says that she has decided what she wants to do, and that he should go away from here. karan is shocked, as she says that she wont take this case back. karan leaves angrily.
Later in the night, diya sits with shaurya and urmi, she gets Karan’s call. he asks diya how can she be so selfish, that to bring happiness into her life, she can manage to douse the life of others. Karan emotionally blackmails, that due to her decision, his mother is at the death bed, and had a fatal heart attack, due to her, her decision, her case and her arrogance. He asks her how can she do this. She asks whats he saying. he says that to give punishment to her rapists, she punished his mother too. she says that she shall just come to see his mother. He says that he cant let her see his mother, as she shall die then.
He tells her that if anything happens to his mother, neither he nor the lord, shall ever spare or forgive her. He cancels the call. Diya is extremely upset and apalled. they ask her what happened. She tells them everything and then blurts that she shall take back the case. She says that she doesnt want to cause anyone any kind of trouble or probable death to anyone, due to her motives. she says that she doesnt need anything, no justice, or punishment to the culprit. she begins to break down on her resolve, and urmi and shaurya are shocked and horrified.
Anirudh asks urmi, while they sit in the drawing room, if she is all set for the court’s hearing tomorrow. She says that it wont do much help, since diya has decided to take back the case. Anirudh is shocked, and then urmi explains everything, as to why diya decdied on this.
Damini pretends to be outraged, that after she had to bear diya for all this time, and the way she disrupted their family, and for all that urmi and shaurya did for her, diya became utterl selfish in the end, and put their efforts and hard work in vain, by easily agreeing that she wont fight anymore, and asks what happened to the revplution that she planned to bring in the society by getting jutsice. urmi says that its complicated as diya isnt happy with this decision too. Damini however continues to poke. urmi suddenly realises that shaurya isnt seen anywhere and wonders where he went.
Meanwhile shaurya comes to karan’s house, to verify his statements, whether his mother is hospitalised and finds it locked. he wonders whether karan was saying the truth, and his mother indeed is serious. he comes t the car, and apssing woman asks if he is looking around for someone. He immediately talks about karan’s mother and she says that they must have just gone around somewhere and then says that this is generally the time she goes to the temple. shaurya smiles and then asks which temple, and gets the address. he then calls up diya and tells her that if she wants to meet karan’s mother, then she should meet him at the said temple, where he would be waiting. diya is worried and immediately complies and rushes out.
Location: Akash’s residence
Ishaani is escorted inside, and asks to sit by the poolside as per Akash’s instructions while he joins her shortly, and after that the butler goes inside. She anxiously waits. Akash meanwhile comes to her from the pool, and comments that she is looking hot. she starts blushing. he asks her to stop, and wait for him, while he comes. He comes out of the pool, draoes a towel, while she blushingly looks away.
he goes to get changed. just then, simran enters, akash’s designer and greets ishaani, knowing her by name. Dressed in a bathrobe, Akash comes and introduces simran, his designer and ishaani. he starts praising ishaani, as being talented and hardworking, and says that she deserves a break, and should get a chance to work. simran is excited and hires her. ishaani thanks him. he says that its okay, and instead of being flattered, he instead flatters her, saying that he loves women, and talent is the icing on the cake. He shakes hands with her and congratulates her. simran too congratulates her and asks her to join tomorrow. she complies and then leaves, starry eyed. Simran and akash eye her.
Location: At the temple
Diya arrives at the temple, asking how is karan’s mother and shaurya asks her to just wait and watch. diya is shocked to find karan’s mother, descendng down the steps, having offered the prayers. she overwhelmingly is about to rush out to her, when he stops her, asking her how is karan’s mother here if she had a fatal heart attack. He asks her to now understand the lies that karan told her. she is outraged.
Location: Shaurya’s residence
Diya confronts karan about his lie. He defiantly says that he did lie, but only to get her, as she had left him with no other option. he says that he tried to convince her but when she remained adamant, he had no other option but to concoct this lie, to get her to buckle to what she wants. He says that he loves her and didnt want to lose her, and hence after his mother agreed with much difficulty, he didnt want her adamancy to spoil it for their love. She says that those who love dont lie.
Shaurya thinks that had they not needed karan for diya’s case, he would have taught karan a lesson. karan asks her not to be emotional. She says that her entire identity stands as a crisis. he asks her to let go of this arrogance and take back this case. she asks how can he suggest it, as she cant forget what happened to her, all her life, ans id dying inside. she says that tragedy ruined her, her family, her life, her work and her very existence. She says that she is being identified as the raped girl, from what she was before, a happy go lucky girl with aims and aspirations, and asks what was her fault in all this.
she asks why should a woman suffer always, and this time she wont, as if she does today, thousands of girls shall be silenced like her. she says that now she is stuck on her resolve, and shall get them punished, at any cost. Karan eyes her tensedly. Diya says that since he has come along with her so far, then a little more steps, as they are this close to victroy. she stands wiping her tears determinedly. Shaurya wonders why is karan wanting her to take back the case all of a sudden, and marry diya, and understands that there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Location: The sponsor’s residence
When karan shares this news with his sponsor, he gets angry. karan is worried of his reaction, and vehemently says that he tried everything in his power to convince her, but in vain. he says that it seems impossible now, as diya is very arrogant and shall stop at nothing now. The sponsor meanwhile is firing bullets in the air, and finally, he draws it at karan, who is shit scared asking him to calm down.
Location: Court room
Nigam asks for Karan to be called in the witness box. While karan takes his place in the witness box, Nigam comes to him and asks him how much he loves diya. Karan asks what question is this. urmi says that this is irrelevant. Nigam says that it is relevant. The judge overrules the objection and asks him to get to the point. He grills karan so much so, that he confesses to him, that he might even kill someone for diya’s sake.
Nigam says that if he can kill someone for diya’s love, he can definitely implicate innocent people, if pressurised by diya. urmi says that this isnt an accusation but a fact. nigam says that this isnt proven yet. The judge overrules urmi’s objection and nigam continues. urmi says that if karan has given testimony then why again. but nigam insists one more time. Nigam is allowed by the judge.
He goes to karan and asks him to identify if these people, the rapists were the people who he got into a scuffle with that night, who then went on to rape diya. urmi stands up and says that karan has testified many a times, then why again. Nigam says that if he testifies one more time, then whats urmi’s problem, since karan has always said the truth, and this time too he shall say it. the judge again overrules and asks urmi to settle down and let the interrogation be.
Nigam continues and asks him to not let innocent people be implicated and convicted. karan hesitates, while diya waits for him to testify. Karan says that the goons he had fought, he isnt very sure if it were the same people. urmi and diya are unable to believe his statement. Nigam asks what does he mean, and if the goons werent his clients then who were they. He says that he doesnt know but its definitely not these people. urmi, shaurya and diya are apalled and shocked. urmi asks whats he saying, and diys asks why is he lying, and begs him to say the truth.
They along with shaurya ask karan to speak the truth, while he says that he is doing so. urmi points out when he has always said the truth, then why is he refraining now. She gives the example of Krishna standing by draupadi when she was taken advantage of, and asks him to man up. karan says that he isnt godly. urmi asks him to be human first and testify the truth. Nigam says that she is trying to bring mythological facts to mislead karan.
She says that infact he is trying to distract the case. she asks karan to say the truth and not lie. Nigam says that he had been lying all this time, due to their pressure and has today spoken the truth. She asks whats the guarantee that he is saying the truth now, if they dont believe the earlier statements. the judge tells karan that misleading the court by varying statements is a crime and he can face legal implications.
karan apologises with folded hands, and says that till now he was lying and today he spoke the truth, as he cant lie anymore, and continues the charade with urmi too. urmi and diya are shocked, while shaurya thinks that he knew this would happen. the judge asks him to clearly speak up. karan says that these people arent the rapists. Karan says that since the time diya has been raped, she has been mentally disturbed, and has not been the normal self that she is, and has developed psychological problems.
Diya stands up in disgust and screams at him. shaurya composes her. urmi is apalled. Anirudh is furious. karan asks the judge to look at diya to find how distraught she is, and for her sake, he had to take their names, but not anymore. urmi asks and begs him not to lie, as diya would break down, and asks karan not to become like them. Karan tells the judge that these are the things that forced him to lie in the first place. Diya screams why is he saving the rapists.
Karan says that diya is so mentally imbalanced that she finds her rapists in everyone, and tomorrow might accuse him too. She asks and breaks incoherently whats he saying. he continues with his pretense that he held her ground for so long, but not anymore. Shaurya says that karan is lying. nigam asks them to stop the drama. urmi says that they are doing so, as overnight karan cant change his statement like this. Karan continues with the pretense, and asks urmi to let the innocent be scot free. nigam says that they are trying to pressurise him yet again, and since there is no case, he asks the judge to acquit the accused.
urmi asks the judge not to, as this would make the people lose their faith on the indian judicial System. nigam says that they dont have any evidence and their eye witness too turned against them. urmi pleads and asks for one chance. The judge says that prosecution doesnt have evidence nor any strong facts, but considering the severity of the case, he shall hear it one more time. The judge says that having finalised the date for the last hearing of the case, the court releases the accused, on bail, due to lack of supportive evidentiary facts. He adjourns the case. Diya is apalled, while urmi and aanirudh are angry.
Location: Outside the court room
Outside the court, diya asks karan how could he brand her as mentally insane, in the court, when he supposedly loves her. karan shoves her away with a jerk, saying that she isnt left worthy to be loved anymore, after her rape. she is outraged and slaps him tight on the face. karan is shocked. urmi, shaurya and anirudh are apalled. he again points out how she is a used commodity now, and is useless to him, and that he had presented her with the offer of marriage, which would have been a profitable deal for her too, along with him, but she had to choose the righteous and justified path.
she asks that this means he never had any intention of marrying her, and the entire love was just a farce. he mocks her and she slaps him yet again. He gets angry and is about to slap her back, when shaurya holds his hand midway, askng him not to even think about it. karan taunst shaurya too. urmi tries to speak in between saying that they shall find a way to the prove the facts. karan insults her and asks her to stay shut as he has had enough of her lecture.
Then she asks him to atleast think about his moral character. he taunts her that he doesnt need to hear about character from a characterless woman. diya and shaurya are shocked. karan walks past them, and then drives off in his car. diya and urmi are angry. shaurya is surprised as it suddenly strikes him that he used to come on a bike, then how did karan manage a car so soon.
Location: Urmi’s residence
Shaurya sits by diya’s side, as she sits apalled, that karan never loved her and was only there with her for his selfish motives. He complies. She asks if its possible that he is under some kind of pressure to behave like that. he denies. She asks how did he know beforehand about karan’s true face. shaurya narrates everything. She says that she cant believe this at all, as she loved him immensely, and he never reciprocated truly.
he asks her to man up and not shed tears for that person, who doesnt deserve it at all. he asks her to move on and look ahead now.She asks why he didnt tell about karan before. he says that he didnt want her to go through another tragic shock, after her rape, and hence didnt reveal it, but he surely didnt want her to find out this way. He asks her to hope for the best, as its good she got to know about karan. She is disturbed still.
Location: Karan’s residence
While karan’s mother comes to know what her son did, by media coverage, she is ashamed. urmi and shaurya along with diya come to their house. karan’s mother is highly apologetic of what he did.

She apologises that she couldnt help them much. urmi signals shaurya. Shaurya tells karan’s mother that there’s something that she can do. she is interested.
In the evning, he asks her if she understood what she has to do. she complies. then the doorbell rings. Shaurya sets up the recorder indiscreetly beside the flower vases to record karan’s confession. They both hide. She opens the door to find karan standing. As karan tries to enter his house, his mother slaps him tight across his face and says that he cant enter in her house. He casually asks what happened to her. She asks if he isnt ashamed that he gave the wrong testimony for diya, when he should have stood by her side.
he says that he hugely benefitted from this whole scenario. Diya and shaurya, hiding inside, listen intently. He continues shamelessly, about his deal with her, and that he is happy that she didnt say yes. He says that he has got a better deal. she asks what possible motive could he have had to do this to diya, and shaming her as being his mother, aking if this is why he gave wrong testimony. He whispers into her ear, that he had a huge gain in this. Karan says that he got huge money, to do what he did. his mother is surprised.
Diya and shaurya are outraged. She asks him who is giving him this money, but he doesnt spill the truth. She asks him to name the person and he becomes adamant that he shall not. he tries to enter but she doesnt let him. She asks him to get lost, as she doesnt need a son like him. he shamelessly asks her to rot in loneliness then. she slams the door shut. Diya and shaurya come out fromhiding, when she apologises that she couldnt get the name out. Shaurya thanks her for what she did, and then says that he knows what to do now.
Shaurya calls up karan, who approaches towards his car. karan taunts him, for still pursuing him. he too taunts him back saying that he runs free even after being an accomplice in a crime. Shaurya says that when bad time comes, then he along with his sponsor shall be behind bars. but karan shoves off his threats. Shaurya asks him to think before speaking, as every conversation of his is being tapped, and then cancels the call. diya asks if this is true. shaurya says that he lied. He than greets karan’s mother and they both leave.
In the car, Karan is extremely tensed and furious at shaurya. He drives amd shaurya notes the number, and then follows him, assuming that he would go straight to the sponsor, in their car.
Location: The sponsor’s residence
karan arrives at the sponsor’s house, and diya and shaurya too in their car come, determined to find out where he went. They rush after him maintaining a safe distance. the same fellow comes, but they arent unable to see his face, due to him being in shadows. Kaeran says that he had to tell him. He says that he could have talked on phone, and refrain from being here, till the case is over. karan says that he cant talk about this on phone. shaurya wonders who is this, and that they cant see it. Diya prays to the godfdess, that just like she comes everytime evil crosses its limit, she asks her to do something miraculous, so that this fellow’s face comes in front.
A sudden lightning, reflects on the sponsor’s face, and diya and shaurya as they recognise him as Jaamdaar. they both come clapping in front of karan and jaamdaar, who are shocked to see them both. shaurya comments how poorly they paid. karan asks how they reached here, and shaurya says that he got them here. karan vehemently denies. shaurya says that he sent him here instead, and then taunts jaamdaar that he relied on a bad player. Diya asks how could she play such a dirty game on her life. he says that he did, after what she did wwith his son, as he wont forgive her.
She says that even the lord wont forgive him. shaurya reminds him that they shall win, as he stands by diya as a rock, and shall determinedly win this case. They begin to leave. he asks them to wait and tells that they are fortunate that his BP is normal, or else he shall have taught them a lesson today. he reminds them of their last hearing the next day. he tells diya and shaurya that they shall lose, as jamdaar has never seen loss in his life, and whoever has tried to defeat him, has been ruined completely.
She says that the wrong people regret, and she hasnt, does not, and never will regret as she is right. Shauray too says that they shall win, as they are right. jaamdaar asks him to pray to the lord then, to fight with him.
