The minister says their photos will send a positive message. Amrita joins them, Kaal calls Raja and hugs him. Raja reminds he is left with 12 days only to name the property after Rani, else he would call another press conference. They ask about Rani, one of the reporters share they have heard Rani left the palace two days after wedding, she came to palace for Teej but left without participating in the Pooja; how would Kaal keep a country united if he can’t handle his family well.

Jeewan comes to classroom and asks Rani what condition is she in. Rani replies she only wants to focus on studies during exams. Raja enters the class from behind, Rani looks towards him when he doesn’t, then he watches Rani when she isn’t. He then sketches Rani’s portrait. The exam begins, Raja mocks Rani calling her Champu. Rani forbids him to speak at this time, Raja keeps a finger over his mouth. Rani’s mouth drops, Raja holds it for her. She speaks to Raja complaining, the teacher comes to taunt Rani about doing their personal talk in the class, the class can wait.

When the teacher leaves, Rani complains Raja for not telling her that the teacher was there. After the class, Rani goes to hide somewhere no one can find her. She comes into library, Raja drags her behind a wall while she resists. He says watching her this way makes it more difficult to stay away from her. Rani says she doesn’t understand what he wants, he wanted her to leave the house first, and now wants to get close to her. Raja utters he has been close to her, as he removes her glasses, and undo her hair braid. He speaks, she looks beautiful in any condition.
There, Kaal comes to college, he asks Meenu about Rani.

Meenu tells him she went towards library. Raja tells Rani he would have to punish her if she teases him again, his punishment would be… he bends to kiss her. Jeewan drops some books nearby, withdrawing their attention. Raja curtly leaves Rani, then turns to see no one was there. Shashi comes to talk to Raja.Kaal enters the library, Rani touches his feet. Kaal says today it’s a father who came to meet his daughter in law, he feels no matter what the issues are but wives should stay at home and try to solve it. Rani apologizes as she can’t return. Kaal tells Rani that people are laughing over them, people use petty matters of royal families against them.

Raja comes from behind saying this would never happen. He walks towards him curtly asking what he is speaking to his wife about. Rani would return home only when her exams are over, and all the conditions of her return have been fulfilled. Rani reminds Raja that Kaal is his father, he must behave with respect. She complains that Raja doesn’t value any relation, not just the relation of wedding. Kaal asks Rani to return soon, but Raja tells him Rani won’t listen to someone who beats his wife. He announces in front of everyone that the bruises over Amrita’s body are actually gifts from him. Rani confirms if this is true, Kaal leaves without replying.

Rani holds Raja’s arm which he jerks to leave.Rani stops Raja outside asking if his childhood was so tough, he has witnessed so much pains when others were playing. Raja curtly replies she has nothing to do about it. Rani says she has to, because he is involved. He turns to leave, Rani assures he isn’t alone in this fight. Raja shouts she left him alone, she loves him when she wish for, then she moves away. Rani asks if it’s she or is he making her worried, he had promised to stay away but last night he came to trouble her… Raja asks trouble, when he moved close to her she didn’t back up.

Today, he also promises from today he won’t trouble her, hug her or come close to her, until she begs him for it. He leaves.Raja was working out in the room, thinking about everytime Kaal had beaten him.Rani dials the landline number, Raja was about to keep the phone down but Rani swears him not to put the phone back. Raja swears her not to discuss about Kaal. He sits on the bed, saying her silence speaks a lot, if she keeps on sitting like that she would fail. Rani minds as she never fails. Rani confirms after a while if everyone is asleep. Raja says yes, only he is awake; his newly married wife left him and comes in dreams only.

Rani says he came in her dreams, Raja laughs that he caught her. Rani regrets. Raja thinks for a while, Rani shares her concern with him but he slaps shut the phone. Raja says he doesn’t want to listen to what’s she saying now. She explains but he slaps the phone again. Rani wonders what this childishness is. Raja says he would only do this childishness with her, she is the fairy from his childhood one only dreams about. There, Rani smiles thinking about Raja.

Raja hears some clatters. Kaal was throwing chairs away in his room, cursing Amrita to have shared everything with Raja. He held a stick over Amrita but Raja comes in with a gun pointing towards Kaal. He pulls the trigger, but Amrita runs to distract his aim. Kaal looks curtly, the bullet had shot a photo on the wall. Amrita cries in front of Raja and sends him away, as not to interfere between her and her husband.
Raja was boxing, Bari Rani Maa comes to ask if he was hurt by someone he loves. Raja insists he has been hurt by the one he hates the most. Bari Rani Maa forbids him to hurt himself, but hurt the one he hates.

He must injure him at a position that shatter him into pieces. Raja was thankful to Bari Rani Maa for being with him.
The next morning, Rani comes to meet Amrita who cheers watching her. Amrita was sure Raja would be happy watching her here. Rani apologizes Amrita, as she is the best mother. She is the worst daughter who went away in her selfishness. Amrita wonders how her happiness would hurt a mother. Rani complains her about suffering everything, still her bruises speak out loud. She understood that day she wasn’t hurt by the door. She got to know yesterday who gave them.

Amrita wipes her tears assuring everything is fine. Rani insists it’s not right, no man has a right to beat his wife; women are prayed on as Goddess; she must raise her voice. Amrita asks who would listen to her. A woman marries to compromise with the relation, she tried to get along in the relation. Before entering the palace life wasn’t as bad, but after coming here Kaal turned to Maharaj. She was weak then. Kaal was walking down the corridor. Amrita shares with Rani she could have gone away but this would have taken a son away from his parents, she was helpless. She wipes her tears, as a women she believed everything would change one day. Now, everything has changed, no one heard her cries initially but now she has two children.

Raja hears a single cry and runs towards her, and Rani hears her unheard cries. She wants her children to get what she didn’t. Amrita sends Rani outside in the garden, Kaal had turned upstairs to get a file.
In the corridor, Bindu asks Raja for some help in a question. Rani comes from behind and watch them together. Jeewan cheers asking what is Rani doing here. Raja questions Rani why she came here. Jeewan wants Raja to behave. Rani replies Bindu she came to talk to her husband. Bindu wasn’t ready to leave until Raja asks her to.

Raja demands her to say please if meeting is so necessary. Rani finally requests Raja. Raja looks towards Bindu who leaves curtly. Raja complains Rani that she had asked him not to hide anything. Rani wants to speak to him about his childhood. Raja change the topic, and wants her to kiss him first. He wants reassurance from her that she would always be there, when she stares into his eyes he forgets his childhood and foresee his bright future. Rani moves forward to kiss but were distracted by some ladies protesting outside the palace against Kaal harassing his wife.

Kaal comes outside and orders his guards to push these women away. The ladies throw stones inside. Rani runs downstairs, while Raja only watches this. The ladies protest that he can’t be elected from this place, they will show him today what strength women own. They would blacken his face today, he has to be afraid of him today. They say he must pay for all he has done, as his daughter in law let home just in two days. Rani comes towards Kaal but Raja watches her getting hurt and takes her inside. They get the doors shut, Bari Rani Maa wonders who got this drama.
