Raaj Mata tells Rani that Raja didn’t study because he wanted to degrade his father. Raaj says when fate brings axe into a child’s hands, he can no more study. His father died at age of 10 years. Rani tells Raaj Mata she will instantly marry Raaj, she won’t make him suffer anymore. Suminda tells Rani to complete Raaj’s deal of next three months.
Raaj Mata asks about the deal, Rani tells Raaj Mata about the deal. Raaj Mata advocates to Suminda that they are made for each other. Rani was also in a hurry to marry, but Raaj says they should wait for at least three months. They need time to understand each other. Raaj Mata announces she is with Rani. Suminda tells Rani to give Raaj sometime to prove himself, he would be answerable to the world as well. Rani says she doesn’t care about the world, but Raaj says he does. He has to prove himself able for Rani, no matter what she says. He turns to leave. Raaj Mata was Rani’s side and says she can do anything if she wants to. At night, Raaj was studying. He opens the door to find a toy train outside. There was a note over it from Rani. She said love is old, the path is old but the life is new; there was an invitation from her to meet him. Rani stood at the balcony with gun held over her forehead. She deterred to kill herself if he doesn’t accept her marriage proposal.
Raaj agrees for marriage. Raaj Mata asks Suminda to accept the proposal. Rani announces this engagement would be done tomorrow before he denies.In the room, Raaj was curt over his condition, he says there isn’t any clothes or ring for him for any engagement. Rani brings clothes for him to select. Raaj says he isn’t ready to marry in rental clothes. Rani says these are his, Raaj corrects they are actually her mother’s. He insists that she must accept him with what he has.
Raaj Mata tells Suminda not to worry, Raaj has the same heart her Raja had. He loves Rani dearly and no one can keep Rani happier than him. Suminda says she has some worries even after knowing this, she was concerned that she knew Kundan since ages still he changed. Life won’t go on over love of last year. She understands her Rani well, she has a different point of view. What if they don’t understand each other and Rani gets a heart break.
Rani asks Raaj what when she was poor in the last life and he helped them? Only the conditions have changed, not their love. If Rani belongs to him, so does everything that she owns. Raaj hugs Rani apologizing for making her hurt, and calls himself stupid. Raaj was ready to do whatever she asks him for.
Raaj Mata says one only changes clothes, souls are infinite. These souls have broken all limits to get united. Every mother is worried if their daughter would live happy after marriage, but she must trust her.
Raaj Mata helps Rani get ready. Rani feels the jewelry heavy, but Raaj Mata says in Rajwaras they wear even heavier clothes. Raaj Mata leaves the room. Rani looks at a shadow in the window but Suminda arrives then.The guests ask Raja why Rani only selected a common man like him. Raaj says its love that erases all the difference. Rani arrives to the hall and compliments him, he taunts his clothes are rental. Rani says everything that’s hers belongs to him as well
Suminda gives the engagement ring to Rani. A lady there taunts Raaj must never have seen such a huge diamond. Raaj Mata asks Raaj to put the ring now, he brings out a wedding band from his pocket. The people there speaks false about Raaj. Raaj says he has nothing to give Rani, only memories like this silver band which belongs to his mother. He always felt an angel was his side, and today he found her as the anger. He is sure he would never fell weak anymore. Rani kiss the ring and says its his mother’s blessings which are the precious most thing for her.
