Strange Love 21 May 2021: starts with Astha travelling in an auto. The auto stops midway. She gets down and thinks how will I reach home now. Sojal brings the saree and the jewellery to Astha’s room. Sojal is annoyed as she is the elder bahu who does much for everyone but no one cares about her. She says Shlok and Anjali does not like her, but today Astha will fall in Niranjan’s sight that he won’t keep her in the house even for six minutes. The party starts. Astha reaches home and faces Shlok at the entrance. He says great, you came on time, did you finish your work in office. She says go and check yourself.
He says don’t forget you are talking to your boss. I feel like firing you from the job but I m not, as I don’t want to leave you so easily. Astha says all the best Mr. Shlok Agnihotri. He smiles and she goes inside. She asks everyone shall we play a game. She announces that we have kept a competition in the party today, you all have to gift pack, the one who does the most will win a prize. Everyone smiles. Astha says lets make teams.

Astha gives a special prize to Kavya and tells Shlok that your Kavya won, atleast clap for her. Shlok claps and smiles. Astha gives a chocolate to Kavya. The gift packing work is done. Astha says so Mr. Shlok Agnihotri, you can send the gifts before office time tomorrow, now you know what can girls do.
Shlok signs yes and leaves. Anjali asks Astha why is she not ready and to wear the clothes which is there in her room. Astha says yes.

He says you might be happy that you have changed Astha, but I have to break your realm, this change is only external, you won’t be able to change Astha as I feel changing clothes does not change heart. Anjali says I won’t stop trying. Kaka smiles and says great, but a person’s heart and mentality can’t change. Astha is a smart girl, she won’t lose easily, you won’t be able to change her. Anjali says its Niranjan’s wish to see me in Astha. She says it won’t be easy for Astha but I will try to make Niranjan happy. She leaves.
