She says I forgot to brush today and leaves. Niranjan tells Anjali that men always win over women, teach Kavya that Patni Dharm is important. He asks did Astha go to concert. Anjali says no, she said Shlok went to Mumbai. He says yes, my son has many works to do, he is not a wife’s puppet to fulfill all her wishes, you are wearing costly sarees and jewellery, as I gave my time to work, the man who fulfills her wife’s wishes and wastes his time, his wife can’t get all this. I worked hard to give you all this.
He says I know very well how to explain Astha. Its night, Astha is angry on Shlok and unable to sleep. She says don’t know what happened to me after marriage, I used to sleep peacefully alone before marriage, but now I can’t sleep when he is not near me. She says idea and gets up. She takes Shlok’s shirt and fills some pillows. She says now Shlok is with me and keeps beside her. Shlok comes and sees her sleeping. He smiles. Mere Mahiya……………plays…………..He sees her hugging the shirt. She wakes up and says Shlok, you came. He says yes. She says the concert was today, you forgot. He says come with me. She says now. He says yes, and takes her. He brings her to the terrace which he has decorated beautifully. Astha is stunned seeing it. She sees the roses and looks at him smiling. He holds her and says I promised a candle light dinner, so here is it, I will sing today for my lovely wife. She says what, you will sing. He plays guitar and she laughs as he does not play well. He smiles seeing her. He then plays well and Astha looks at him surprised. He sings Te amo…………She thinks of their love moments and smiles. She holds his hand and they dance. Astha too sings the same song. They have their dinner and drinks. They have a talk and laugh.
