Once there was a king 19 March 2022: Lakhan blames Raaj Mata for only calling her a son but not accepting him, else she wouldn’t have turn away his happiness behind. He tells Raaj Mata they have a daughter, of Rani’s age. Raaj Mata was shocked to hear.Rani was ready to do anything but can not do this, Jeewan is a rude and spoilt child. She can’t be friends with him. Bari Rani Maa says that she had given Raja the courage, she can teach Jeewan to behave. Rani was worried.
Bari Rani Maa says if Jeewan finds a good friend, he would also get better. Rani was worried that Raja would dislike her friendship with Jeewan. Bari Rani Maa says if she became their friend, both brother would live happily. Rani says she won’t do this for her but for Raja, if Jeewan gets better Raja would really be happy and nothing is important for her than this. She shakes the golden hand of Bari Rani Maa.
Jeewan was chilling in his room with finger in his nose. She comes to scold him for that. Jeewan asks why she came in his room? Rani calls herself his friend. Jeewan disgust says she is a maid and he a prince, he watches Bari Rani Maa on the window and says if she can teach him riddles they can be friend. Rani cheers and assures she would turn his turtle like mind into a rabbit. He forwards to shake his hand with her, she avoids.
Bari Rani Maa comes to Raja who had been restlessly waiting for Rani. Bari Rani Maa heavily tell Raja that Rani is with Jeewan. Raja wonders if Jeewan is teasing Rani. Bari Rani Maa says they are now friends. Raja couldn’t accept this. Bari Rani Maa says Rani is a good girl, he could have given Rani more money till yesterday but since Kaal loves Jeewan more he might be able to pay her more money. Raja doesn’t accept Rani can betray him ever. Raja runs up, Bari Rani Maa says his eyes would betray him.Rani tells Jeewan counting about a few samosa, she asks if he has five samosa and Raja takes two how much is left.
Jeewan says he doesn’t give samosa to anyone. Rani heads to teach him with fruits nearby, Jeewan drops a mango and bend to pick mango up. His pants torn, both laugh. Raja comes to question Rani why she came to be friends with Jeewan? Rani remembers she promised Bari Rani Maa not to tell Raja who asked her do so. Rani was speechless. Raja calls all the girls to be alike, selfish. Bari Rani maa thinks she spent a whole seven years after Raja, she can’t let her ruin that. Rani demands what he means by selfish. Raja tells Rani that he proved to be her friend and gave her money. Rani argues that Raja didn’t buy her like a doll. She can’t always abide by him, she isn’t a servant of Raja.
Raja twists Rani’s hand, both leave the room and part ways. Bari Rani Maa laughs victoriously. She was determined not to let this crack ever fill in. She walks into Jeewan’s room, he says he can’t bear that girl anymore. Bari Rani Maa brings him table full of eatables. Jeewan gets crazy, Bari Rani Maa caresses him to do what she asks for.Swarna stops Lakhan, he says he lived without her and his daughter for seven years. He thought she wasn’t in this world, and she awaited him. Swarna says she didn’t shed tears for last seven years, but now they have betrayed. Lakhan was determined not to let Swarna stay in palace anymore, he won’t even let Raaj Mata alone.
He asks her to go home and get ready. Swarna tells him that in the evening, Kaal and Bari Rani Maa go out for club. Lakhan promise to come on the back wall of palace in the evening, he would pick her here.Rani comes to school and laughs watching the teacher snoring. Raja and Bindu mind. Rani slaps the tray on the table, teacher wakes up at once. He asks Jeewan for homework, and appreciates Jeewan has written all the answers. Rani boasts. Raja shows his work. The teacher appreciates Jeewan’s over Raja’s, and leaves for lunch break. Raja asks Rani if she helped him. Rani says friends help each other. Raja teases Rani by giving her mask to Bindu as birthday present.
Bindu goes to show it to everyone, Rani was upset.Raaj Mata comes out where Lakhan sat on floor, annoyed. She gives him tea and sits beside him. Lakhan says whatever she did won’t change what she did already. Raaj Mata tells him she was worried for Rani. Lakhan calls Rani as his daughter. He tells Raaj Mata they are going out of Amirkot, but this time five of them would leave. Raaj Mata wonders how she would bring Swarna and Bindu. Lakhan says no one in the palace know about Rani, he will save Rani from that Bari Rani Maa but his wife and daughter as well.
Raja complains Rani why she gave his food to Jeewan.
Rani says if Raja can give her mask to someone else, can’t she give a sandwich to Jeewan. She forbids him be jealous in every matter. Jeewan was happy at this fight.Swarna comes palace happily.Lakhan jumps the palace’s wall, he spots her car and thinks Bari Rani Maa hasn’t left yet, still he can’t leave without meeting his Bindu. Rani comes to Bari Rani Maa then, telling her about Jeewan’s progress in studies. Lakhan was shocked. Bari Rani Maa appreciates her and promises a gift for this. Rani asks her to remember her promise about helping her grandmother. Lakhan thinks about his promise to Raaj Mata. Bari Rani Maa leaves, Swarna comes to the door awaiting Lakhan and calls Bindu. Lakhan holds Rani and runs outside.
Swarna was worried why Lakhan didn’t come to meet her, she must inquire if everything is fine at his home. She wonders how she should leave Bindu alone.Lakhan scolds Rani for lying to them. Rani tells Lakhan she doesn’t want to lose her grandmother. She narrates him everything, from Swarna’s promise to her confrontations with Kaal and Bari Rani Maa’s challenges. Lakhan holds her head. Rani says Bari Rani Maa came out to be a real witch, she took all her money. Lakhan shouts who asked her to go to palace, she must never go there again. Rani argues what about her money. Lakhan slaps Rani, forbidding her talk about it again.
Raaj Mata comes to defend Rani and asks how dare he held a hand over Rani. Lakhan thinks Raaj Mata won’t be able to bear the truth that Rani was so close to Bari Rani Maa. Raaj Mata asks Rani, Lakhan forbids Rani say a word. They would leave this place in next four days, and in these days she won’t leave this house. Rani runs inside. Lakhan thinks Swarna kept on looking his way today, how he will meet them now. Raaj Mata thinks Lakhan is hiding something, she would ask Rani about it tomorrow.The next morning, Rani asks Lakhan why he is upset when the mistake was hers. Lakhan says her was not deliberate, but he held hand over her deliberately.
He joins hands to her not to ask questions, but she can’t go to palace no matter what happens. There is a knock at the door, Lakhan asks her to open the door. The guards come home with a doctor. The doctor asks Rani about her grandmother, Bari Rani Maa sent them for her treatment. Lakhan hides himself and tells Rani to send them away. Rani makes up that she is away for three to four days. Lakhan asks Rani why these guards came. Rani tells him the whole story about Bari Rani Maa’s promise. Lakhan says Bari Rani Maa is again trying to be nice, she wants to repeat the story.
Lakhan asks Rani what will happen if she doesn’t go to palace. Rani qualifies she would come here searching for him. Lakhan thinks Bari Rani Maa is still unaware whose daughter Rani is, if someone from palace comes here they would know. He can’t let Rani’s truth disclose at them. Rani calls him and demands what he is thinking about. Lakhan says Rani would go to palace, until they get a chance to leave this place, she must not say anything from anyone in the palace. Rani demands how she can be silent. Rani asks why? Lakhan orders her, and takes her promise over his head not to answer anyone or argue; else her Baba would die just the way her mom did. Rani swears not to speak to anyone there. Rani now takes his hands over her head, not to leave anywhere.
Raja tells the guard he won’t eat anything until Rani comes. The guard asks if a prince would leave food for a servant, what if Bari Rani Maa comes to know about it. Amrita stands in window. Raja breaks the glass on floor and asks the guard to go and complain Bari Rani Maa, he doesn’t care. He come out and confronts Rani. He says if she has accepted her defeat that is why she is speechless. Rani doesn’t say a word, but thinks she can’t bear standing in front of him. He calls her stubborn. Bindu asks whom is he calling stubborn. Raja says there is one, why talk about her. Raja asks Bindu about her birthday party, he calls friends to be betrayer. Rani turns around to look at Raja.
Raja says betrays are when people look towards others leaving their friends. Rani was cooking bread in kitchen, she burns her hand and thinks she wants to cry but can’t go to anyone. Raja is angry pointlessly, but she can’t get a chance to turn him and Jeewan into friends.
Amrita drags Raja into a room. Raja asks why she is doing this to him? Amrita says he has proven today that he is Kaal’s son, then why is she doing this to Rani, her friend? Raja tells Amrita that Rani made friends with Jeewan. Amrita explains to Raja that Rani only became friend with Jeewan but didn’t tease him at all, then why he teased Rani by making her upset. Raja hugs Amrita saying he doesn’t want to be like Kaal. Amrita asks him to go and apologize Rani.
He runs away to apologize. Bari Rani Maa comes inside saying Kaal is right, she can’t turn Raja to a prince. Amrita says she can make him a good man, its more important for her than her son becoming a prince.
