Pandit ji says to Raaj Mata that without watching the face of a bride the rituals aren’t complete.Rana ji watches Gayatri’s face in the mirror and is angry at her. He removes the veil off her face, she was the one he had met in the library, Kaka said that she is his daughter. Rana ji thinks that this father and daughter have played a big game with her, he thinks he will never forgive her.
The killer takes aim and thinks that Raaj Mata is coming in his way, how to finish Rana ji.Rana ji’s hands shiver in rage, he drops the ring. Everyone looks for the ring on the floor, the killer takes an aim as Raaj Mata leaves her place. The killer is worried that everyone is moving so much that he has been unable to take aim. He changes his position and then takes the aim. Gayatri spots the ring and calls there it is.She looks at Rana ji who was staring at her, then takes her veil on. Yashoda picks the ring, Raaj Mata asks Rana ji to put the ring on. He must stop looking at Raaj Mata for everything, he is going to get married now.
Rana ji holds Gayatri’s arm and presses it hard, Gayatri is disturbed. Rana ji puts the ring on her hand, she smiles while Rana ji leaves her arm curtly. Gayatri watches her ring happily.Raaj Mata asks the bride to put on the ring on grooms hand. Seth ji brings the ring to her, Rana ji shuts his eyes thinking about Surakshna as he raises his fist. Gayatri awaits him to open his hand which he finally opens to wear the ring. The killer had taken aim.Kunwar awaited his fire. Everyone claps as the engagement takes place. Pandit ji asks the bride and groom to put in sweet into each other’s mouth. Gaytari thinks that she will never forgive how Rana ji took care of her wish.
Rana ji thinks that this ring is a mark of her and her father’s betrayal to him. Rana ji leaves the stage, Kunwar points at the killer and stops Rana ji. He says that though Rana ji doesn’t think of him as a well-wisher, but today he wants to hug him and get rid of all their past difference. He hugs Rana ji, Rana ji was about to leave but Kunwar offers him a drink. Rana ji takes the drink and leaves, the killer couldn’t shoot. Kunwar thinks of him to be useless.Raaj Mata announces for the celebrations to begin, she announces that she called the dancers from Punjab. Gayatri gets an idol as gift, she thinks that all her dreams have been fulfilled and prays that all her dreams are taken care of.
Bhabis dance at the function. Rana ji stands up and walks past the stage. Gayatri begins to clap on the stage, Raaj Mata thinks that they will need to teach a normal girl about all the ways of palace. Rana ji goes to have drinks after drink. The killer drops his gun, Kunwar spots it under a chair. The killer comes downstairs, Kunwar says that a wooden sword is just for the children to play. He asks the killer if he ever watched one, he says no. Kunwar asks him to see mirror.Raaj Mata comes to Gayatri to fulfil the rituals. Kunwar comes besides Seth ji and asks why is he sentimental.
He tells Seth ji not to worry, they will take care of his daughter and make her worthy of royal palace. Seth ji says that royal palace must change itself to get worthy of his daughter’s brought up.Kokilla notices Kunwar coming and comes to ask if his aim still get to goal. Now he must see how she ruins everything by her speech.Rana ji thinks that truth always comes to front. He comes to Gayatri and asks her to meet him outside in the garden.Kokilla blows the aarti candle herself, then creates an issue that this isn’t good omen. Raaj Mata says it isnt a bad omen, it was just a blow of wind. She asks her to light a candle again. Laksh’s wife lights it again. Raaj Mata asks Kokilla to do the aarti and distribute the sweet and be careful that there is no bad omen again.
Laksh’s wife says to Gayatri that no one must have offered her water. Gayatri laughs. She forbids her saying it is against the traditions of royal palace’s life. They both laugh then. She asks Gayatri to come to her whenever she needs a friend. Gayatri asks for Kunwar Laksh saying she didn’t meet him, she replies that she herself didn’t meet her husband till now.Pandit ji was worried and says to Raaj Mata that on the day of engagement there was a bad omen. Raaj Mata asks him either to find a solution or keep quiet. She then comes to Gayatri and tells Laksh’s wife to teach Gayatri all the rules and traditions of royal palace as they seem to be good friends.
Seth ji takes a leave, Raaj Mata asks why he didn’t eat something. Seth ji says that according to their traditions they can’t even drink water from daughter’s house. Rana ji comes drunk over there, he says to Seth ji that everything here is his, isnt it. He says that even he (Rana ji) is also his. Raaj Mata takes Seth ji inside to talk about marriage and stares at Rana ji.Gayatri thinks that since no one is around she must go out as Rana ji wanted to say something to her. Outside the palace, the killer was breaking the leg of a statue on the roof to drop it on Rana ji.
Rana ji asks Gayatri why she lied to him. Gayatri says she was afraid. Rana ji tells her that this marriage will take place but…. Gayatri watches the statue coming down and pulls the sleeve of Gayatri. Both roll on each other but the statue breaks behind them. Rana ji is hurt at forehead, Gayatri tries to touch it but he jerks her hand curtly.Everyone comes out, Kokilla asks who broke the statue, then stares at Kunwar and gets her reply. She qualifies that they must take care of the palace. Raaj Mata asks Rana ji if he is alright. Gayatri is worried why Rana ji held her hand so firmly, is he angry at her for that little lie.
Raaj Mata apologizes Seth ji for all what has happened, she asks them to forgive everything that happened today and announces that tomorrow there will be Haldi of Gayatri at Govind Seth’s house. Gayatri keeps on looking at Rana ji who didn’t look at her. Kunwar curtly looks into the direction of statue on the roof. Rana ji tells everyone to go inside, he will just come in. Rana ji moves behind to look at the statue, he thinks there is someome who threw this statue down.Kunwar ji says to the killer that he has broken promise with him, he asks if he himself will do the honours or shall he. The killer takes the knife and cuts his finger himself.
Kunwar tells him to plan something else tomorrow else cutting of neck if more painful than cutting the finger. Kokilla who shut closed eye asks Kunwar if it is done. He says she must come here now,She says that couldn’t he get it done without the spill of the blood. She tells Kunwar that she will now do something about stopping the wedding. Kunwar asks how will she do this? She says she will do it with bad omen plan.Kunwar ji says that if something could happen with good or bad omen he must be there on the seat of Rana ji. Kunwar leaves but Kokilla says that the politics of men and women differ.
21: Kokilla says that as she will mix this acid in the haldi Gayatri will have such a burning that she will forget Rana ji. Raaj Mata goes to put on Haldi to Gayatri.Kunwar ji prepares for a deep dug hole in ground where one of his men fell down and die. He orders his men to cover it.The guests arrive at Seth ji’s house.Kunwar comes to the place where Rana ji’s pooja was going on. He awaits the killer to attempt the murder. Rana ji gives the royal jewellery to the princess to be of Amarkot. She announces that the dress has been designed by the special designer and is only 1 lac 25 thousand.
Pandit ji tells Rana ji about a ritual that the groom has to get annoyed and the family members come to make him up.

Everyone was worried, Raaj mata asks why such shouts?Rana ji asks Kunwar why is he so worried, what is there in the hole they must also see. As the men removes the cover, there were sharp arms under it. Rana ji says to Kunwar that he has failed again. Kunwar asks what does he mean? Rana ji says that his protection is also a responsibility of Kunwar, he has failed again.Seth ji says this is God’s blessings that he is saved, he says that firstly the bomb, then the statue and now this hole; who can be involved in all this.
