Once there was a king 30 January 2022: Rana ji comes to Gayatri, he keeps a hand on hers silently and says he had listened in the stories that lovers come to each other crossing even seven seas. And here, they haven’t been able to be near to each other.
Gayatri says what if it is someone else, and says she doesn’t like that Avdesh. Rana ji asks why she doubts him, Gayatri thinks about all that happened to her. Rana ji asks if he did something. Gayatri says he is strange, she is always afraid whenever he is around. Rana ji says he is just a bit different, why would he put on the fire. Had he wanted to kill him, he would have done this before. He asks her not to over think and both go towards the room.
The next morning, Gayatri stops Rana ji in the corridor and says he forgot something again. Rana ji smiles and heads to give her a kiss, she stops him and hands his handkerchief to him. He holds her hand and keeps it on his chest. Gayatri says someone would see them, Rana ji says he doesn’t care. Gayatri says he is being mischievous with the Rani of Amirkot. She watches Kunwar ji going to Avdesh’s room secretly.Avdesh was lying on his bed watching his bracelet and talked to Gayatri. He says he wants to apologize Gayatri. Kunwar ji comes inside and asks if he can come in.
Kunwar ji says he came to apologize him for hurt he gave yesterday. Avdesh says he is forgiven and asks Kunwar ji to be straight forward. Rana ji and Gayatri come at the door to listen what they speak about. Kunwar ji offers Avdesh a chance to win the lost war. Avdesh asks him to be clear. Kunwar ji says he can still win Amirkot, but his help. Kunwar ji forwards his friendship hand towards Avdesh. Avdesh smiles.Kunwar ji forwards the hand of friendship to Avdesh. Gayatri and Rana ji await his reply. Avdesh shouts at Kunwar ji to go out now. He can never think about it. Rana ji smiles victoriously.
Avdesh takes his sword out. Kunwar ji is frightened at once and says he is leaving. Avdesh says nothing should happen to Rana ji. Avdesh thinks that to win the trust, one has to win it first. Now the game would be fun.Gayatri makes Swarna drink soup with her own hands, she complains that Swarna didn’t tell her about her illness. Swarna hugs Gayatri and says she already has so many tensions. Gayatri asks Swarna if Laksh takes care of her? Swarna thinks about Cheetah and says yes, he takes care of her. Gayatri says Kunwar ji keeps good care of her, she had never thought he would be so caring.
Swarna thinks about Cheetah and says she took him really wrong. Gayatri says to Swarna that her mother says one must smoke the house with kappoor when someone is ill. She heads to leave. Swarna wonders how she must tell Gayatri that she is thinking not about Laksh but a stranger.In the palace hall, Avdesh gets a gift happily. Rana ji asks what this is. Avdesh says it must be from Raajeshwari. She remembers his birthday always that is today. He brings about a little bottle. Gayatri asks what this is. He says this must contain Rajeshwari’s blood just to remind they are bind with a relation.
Rana ji asks where his sister is. Avdesh says she is like a free wind breeze that is nowhere but is everywhere. Raaj Mata greets him. Avdesh touches her feet, she blesses him. Avdesh asks her permission to call her Maa as a gift. Raaj Mata nods. Rana ji asks Avdesh if he wouldn’t ask him for a gift. Avdesh says he won’t be able to give that to him. Rana ji promises he will give that to him. Avdesh cheers, and says he wants to defeat Rana ji once. Rana ji says winning and losing matter when they weren’t friends and today is the day of celebration. Today, his birthday will be celebrated in the palace.
Avdesh cheers and says for the first time, he is going to celebrate his birthday with his owns. He had a lot of money in life, but he is witnessing love for the first time. Kokilla and Kunwar ji hear this, Kokilla curses him for asking a chance while he denied Kunwar ji’s help then. Kunwar ji says he isn’t any simple person, but promises Kokilla to win him tonight.Swarna gets ready, she looks behind to find Cheetah looking at her. He says he came to tell her that guests are here.
Swarna nods, and holds Cheetah’s hand. She says thank you to him for everything. Laksh comes and watches them. He says that function is only for royal people. Swarna leaves Cheetah’s hand. Laksh says beggars like him aren’t required there, it is a sitting company not a bed. He holds Swarna’s hand and takes her out of the room.Rana ji plays piano in the party. Gayatri enjoys it watching him. Avdesh looks at her. Kunwar ji appreciates Rana ji. Rana ji says today Avdesh called Raaj Mata as Maa, their relation isn’t only friendship but brotherhood.
A brother is never denied of anything, he will give Avdesh a chance for what he wants. Avdesh says there is no liability to fulfil his wish. Rana ji asks in which game Avdesh wants him to either defeat him or get defeated. Avdesh gives Rana ji a gun, he goes backward and says they must now see who takes a good aim among them. He keeps a glass over his head. Rana ji takes the aim. Raaj Mata says game is a way to make oneself happy. Gayatri says they won’t play this game, what if any of them get hit.
Avdesh says he has no worry now, he will welcome death even. He would think that the world’s most beautiful woman stopped his husband for him. Gayatri says this is no game, they don’t need to stake his life for celebration. Avdesh comes to Gayatri and apologizes her, he says he never had relations and bonding, then how he would understand it. He says he and his sister has always played such games, he understands for them this is a strange one. Gayatri asks him not to apologize again and again. Avdesh says to Rana ji that not everyone gets everything in life. Rana ji says he had promised Avdesh that he would get a chance, it isn’t necessary that one stake life in every game.
Avdesh says he doesn’t want to make Rana ji lose. Rana ji asks he himself also doesn’t want to lose, then who will lose? Avdesh says luck. Rana ji wonders what is that game. Avdesh says it is Choker.
Avdesh says to Rana ji that they will play Choker, where fate determines what is right and what is wrong. Rana ji says he won’t play it. Kunwar ji says this game is played since the time of Mahabharat. At that time, timids used to back up only from it. Rana ji says they can play something else as well. Kunwar ji says this is the safest game, his game will be there in his hands. Avdesh challenge Rana ji to prove that not only his sword, his fate is also better than Avdesh.
If he loses, his soul will get peace. Kokilla bucks Rana ji to say yes. Gayatri was worried, Rana ji thinks for a while. He says he is ready. Avdesh thinks he knew Rana ji would give him a chance, and he will take full advantage of this chance.Kunwar ji tells the rules of the game and calls to begin the game. Avdesh says he wants to make a bid. Rana ji says they are here to play Choker here. Avdesh says there will be fun. Kunwar ji says they must fulfil the conditions. Gayatri thinks about Rana ji’s annoyance when she didn’t trust him last time. Rana ji looks at Gayatri to listen to her consent. Avdesh says he has heard that mothers hand has great taste, if he wins Raaj Mata will cook for him for a week.
He says the one who will lose will have to take a drink. He says seven. Rana ji says he is sorry that Raaj Mata will have to cook for one week. Raaj Mata says she will love to cook for her son. Rana ji asks for Avdesh’s horse. He says ten, and throws the dice saying he met Gayatri on tenth for the first time. Avdesh says he is playing with Lakshmi by his side, he can’t lose. The game goes on. Raaj Mata and Gayatri get worried. Gayatri tells Rana ji that he has drunk too much. Avdesh says he already told him that the one who can’t control his drink can’t control his wife also. Rana ji says he can control both. Kunwar ji says now Rana ji has begun to win. Raaj Mata asks Kunwar ji not to interfere.
Avdesh says Raaj Mata is right, he needs to see what is left with the royalty of Amirkot to stake. Rana ji stands up and goes out of the hall. Gayatri goes behind him.In the room, Rana ji was taking out all the money and jewelry from the locker. Gayatri says Kunwar ji wants to trap him, and what he is doing. Rana ji says Kunwar ji couldn’t do anything wrong to him. Rana ji says that this time it is the respect of Amirkot, he will stake it all and win it all this time. Gayatri says he isn’t in his senses. Rana ji says he is in his full senses, she must bring this all downstairs. Gayatri comes behind him stopping Rana ji, her dress get stuck with a nail. Avdesh holds it and says he freed her.
He asks Gayatri if she is angry at him, if she asks him he will lose. Gayatri says if he wants to do something for her he must try to win, this victory or loss may affect him not her and Rana ji. She says until she and Rana ji are together, nothing can affect him. Had she been trapped in something wrong, she would have got rid of it herself
