they suggest a duel to find out. Meanwhile, at the temple, ila tells the entire truth to gayatri, and laments that had she only asked her about it, she would have told. she walks off. gayatri is tensed about the doubt that she has raised in rita’s min unnecessarily.
In her room, rita is worried about gayatri’s statements, when niranjan comes and talks about the duel. she resignedly complies, but is still lost whether or not to believe gayatri or niranjan. niranjan goes out. sameer and rahul make him exercise enough. when parimal doesnt return back, niranjan decides to take use of the advantage, and then decides to declare himself the winner by parimal’s forfeit. in his glaoting, he doesnt realise parimal is descending and starts talking about how parimal got scared, while rahul and sameer are amused, as he stands right behind niranjan, who is petrified when he sees parimal, while others are amused. the duel of pushups begin amidst much cheering and animated talkls. gayatri and ila watch from the balcony, and are happy to see them all united, as they have a good brotherly time.
In her room, rita is extremely upset and decides to go and ask ila everything clearly.

rita wonders why is she behaving diabolical in front of ila, and wonders whether what niranjan tells about gayatri, being b*t*hy is actually true. she goes to her room. in her room, she is torn thinking what to believe and what not. she decides to look up rohan’s numbver, but doesnt find it in niranjan’s cell. she realsies that they again lied to her. niranjan returns talking about how stressed out he is, and she suggests him to take a steam bath to relax. he complies, and is about to go in, when she is unable to resist herself and asks about rohan. he says that he has no such friend.
Rita clears to niranjan, about the lie that gayatri and ila told to her about rohan having given her maya’s number, whereas he says that he had no such friend. he is tensed as to what to answer. he thinks that before things worsen up, he clarifies that he forgot about this friend, and indeed there was a guy rohan, who name he forgot since its been so long. when seeing that she is unconvinced, he tries to nudge her and remind her about how she had promised that she wouldnt doubt. she complies. he goes to freshen up.
