Lies of the heart 23 August 2020: Urmi comes and eyes ishaani who’s asleep in her room, still haunted by her words’ bitterness last night. she sits by her side, and caresses her face, thinking that fate is playing a cruel game on her, that she cant even hug her tight or kiss her, and wonders why god punisjhed her so badly, that she cant even love her own daughter.
she says that she years for a little love on her side, and a small rendition of mother, and wonders how to assure herself that things will reverse. She thinks that she resigns herself, to thinking that ishaani is happy, but she cant stand this anymore, and her patience is breaking now. She wonders how long would this continue and then leaves.

She just cares for him and doesn’t want to upset him about anything. But they wouldn’t know as they have no connection with love whatsoever. Cheeku tells her to say that to Shaurya only, but not him. She knows he has a girlfriend. She tells him that he changes girlfriends every week or two and that’s not called love. Shaurya tells her to bring Karan in party as well which they kept for Diya.

First she thinks he’s just her another client. Urmi tells her to behave and says he will keep her at home as a daughter. She laughs and says all want to lift her in their lap, not adopt her. Urmi asks her to decide what she wants. Go with Gaurav and make her future or stay where she is currently.
At home, Asha is upset that she has to do all work alone and there is no one to talk with as Gaurav and Cheeku are always busy. Just then Urmi and Gaurav come there with Nupur.

Shaurya shows everyone Diya getting praised on a news channel and all clap for her. Cheeku praises her for showing courage and bringing the truth out. She says it wouldn’t have been possible without his help. They hug. Then Diya’s colleagues take her to take photographs and he again gets insecure seeing Diya close with everyone. Karan doesn’t like either. When he gets a chance, he tells Diya thank you, wishing is fine, but does she have to hug like that? She says come on they are colleagues, this much is fine. Karan says it’s all just show off…there’s something called simplicity too. Diya diverts his mind and says she’s thirsty. What he will drink. They go and sit on a table.
Cheeku sees them and asks Shaurya..doesn’t he think that Karan is showing too much authority on her? What’s the need to show so much love publicly? Shaurya says what does it matter to him? It’s their life. Let them live. And anyhow they love each other. Cheeku says he loves his girlfriend too, but they don’t do such a showoff. Cheeku then says leave that and asks him what his scene? He’s not a lover type, so he must have thought about arranged marriage. Shaurya says his marriage will be love marriage only. Cheeku gets shocked. Shaurya says until he doesn’t fall in love, he won’t get married. Cheeku asks if he had any girlfriend. Shaurya asks has he seen anyone ever? He says no. Shaurya says then answer is no. Cheeku shows few girls to him saying they are his type, but Shaurya says neh. Cheeku asks him he likes Diya then or what? Shaurya becomes thoughtful.
Chiku teases shaurya about diya, and is amused when he gets to know that there arent any feelings involved. While karan and diya are sitting, her friends(male) come and forcibly coax her to dance in a friendly manner, holding her hands, which sends karan into a frenzy, and unable to control his anger, he hits out at the person. diya takes him away, while shaurya picks the guy up, and assures and comforts him.
