Strange Love 30 April 2021: starts with jaya and Sojal having a laugh seeing Astha work. Sojal says its great that Astha finished everything before I woke up. Anjali comes and asks Soja;l who has lighten the diya. Astha says I had. Anjali scolds her and says forget your home, till your father in law does the puja, don’t light the diya. She asks Sojal to leave Taai to the ashram and make the food for her journey. She asks Astha to wash the silver plates and keep it inside. jaya says I will do that. Anjali asks her when is she going back. jaya says very soon, maybe tomorrow, but Kavya will be alone when Sojal goes, so I will stay here for Kavya. Anjali leaves angrily.
Astha looks at them. Sojal leaves with jaya. jaya is having a splendid time having fruits and resting like she is the owner of the house. She says I should have not talk about work to Anjali. She thinks of some idea and pretends as if she is hurt infrint of Astha. Astha sees her and asks what happened, are you fine. jaya fools her and says do as Anjali said. Astha says I will take you to the doctor. jaya says no need and leaves. Astha thinks of finishing the work then find out Avdhoot’s file. Astha goes to her room and thinks she will find the papers as no one is at home. She searches for the papers. Astha looks around in the room. Shlok is coming to his room in full speed. Astha gets some files and she checks them. Shlok calls out Astha. Astha is still searching the file while he is coming to her. She think once she gets the papers, Shlok cannot blackmail her. He comes to his room and calls out Astha. She is not in the room. He sees the cupboard open and is shocked. He calls her but in vain. He looks out for here everywhere and thinks if she has run away from his house, it won’t be good for his dad, then he will not spare Astha’s dad.
Astha is sitting somewhere in the house itself. He hears her phone ringing nearby and finds her. He says what are you doing here. He says you should keep a smile on your face and welcome me. She says leave my hand else I will shout. He says don’t shout. Shlok sees someone looking at them and Shlok acts sweetly to her. Astha thinks till she gets the papers, she has to be with Shlok. jaya is looking at them. Shlok asks did you miss me. Astha says what happened to you today. He sweetly lifts her in his arms and leaves from the terrace. jaya thinks there is something fishy. The next morning, Astha talks to Shlok. She says I need to talk but he does not listen to her. She stops him and says I m saying I want to talk. Shlok says I m the one to talk and you are the one made to listen. She says you lied to me, I know you don’t have any proof against my dad and you are fooling me, I will leave. He says how do you know this. She says because I have checked the entire house and there is no file. He says you are dumb, what do you think, I will let you reach the file, go if you want, I will drop you home, come on.
He says what happened now, why did you stop, are you thinking about your dad, keep thinking, you have lots of time. He says I m getting late for jogging and leaves. Astha thinks she has to stay with him to save her dad’s pride.jyoti is working at her home and gets a phone. She calls Astha and wishes Astha picks her call. Abhay takes the phone from jyoti and sees who she was calling. jyoti is tensed seeing him. He scares her and stares at her angrily. He says you stayed there for so much time, so did you forget about this house, you have to take my permission even to breath. He says tell Astha that I m beating you and he hurts her saying I will not spare Astha. I will teach her a lesson that she will be shocked hearing my name. jyoti cries.
Astha is cooking in the kitchen thinking about Shlok. She says I did a mistake, and my family is into problems, I have to help my dad, I can’t be quiet like this. Shlok comes to Niranjan and says the food is ready, shall we. Niranjan says yes, but first come and sit with me. Shlok comes to him and sits near his feet. Niranjan praises him and says I m proud of you. Shlok says this happene dbecause of you, you are my idol. He says your dreams are my dreams. Niranjan says the way you took your marriage’s decision, I was shocked. Shlok says you are most important to me, Astha insulted you, I had to turn that insult into respect and I know Astha had to be on our side. Niranjan smiles.
Anjali puts the plates on the dining table. Kavya comes and asks for food. Anjali says you will get food after Niranjan eats. Kavya is upset. Astha goes to Kavya and feels bad for her. She takes Kavya with her to the kitchen and says are you hungry. Kavya says yes. Astha says have food whatever I give you. Astha gives her a roti roll and asks her to eat. Bharat sees them. Kavya says I always get hungry but Anjali stops me. Astha says eat this fast, I gave to go. Bharat smiles seeing Astha. Anjali tells Astha I asked you to make four dishes, where is the fourth one. Astha says its here. Anjali talks to her about food. Astha says i made the dishes according to everyone’s likes. Anjali sees the dish and scolds Astha. Bharat hears all this. Astha says what happened. Anjali says how dare you break my rules. She says you have to use potato in every dish, else its incomplete.
Astha talking to Anjali. Anjali says stop arguing, this is not your dad’s house, she says this food is not good, you need to have potatoes in it, don’t do this mistake again. She says give this dish to anyone poor and make the dish again. Astha takes it and leaves. Avdhoot says Kalindi, I m trapped in a big problem, they are doubting me of bribe and they are starting the enquiry on me. Kalindi says how can this happen, I don’t believe that they can do such thing. Ajju says don’t worry, you won’t be caught as you are honest. Avdhoot says I don’t understand how this happened, is someone after this? Kalindi says maybe we can ask Niranjan’s help. He says no, I don’t want Astha to hear some taunts because of me.jyoti’s mum in law is trying jyoti’s gold earrings. Abhay comes to her and says what did jyoti do. He says I stopped her from talking on phone, what should I do, keep an eye on jyoti or talk to her family. She says you take care of her family, I will see jyoti. She says find the weak person in that house and take him in your confidence.
Abhay thinks Sojal is the weak person in that house and thinks she is be his help from now on. He thinks of gifting Sojal something. She says I will buy this gold and buy something for her. His mum laughs.Astha serves food to everyone. Niranjan asks Anjali to serve him food. Astha looks at them and makes some food fall. Shlok is shocked. Everyone looks at her. Astha cleans it but Shlok holds her hand and does not leave. Bharat smiles.Shlok looks at Astha. Niranjan says Astha, the food is really good. Astha says thanks. Shlok says really, its very good, I did not know you are such a good cook. Astha is annoyed. Shlok says if everyone likes the food which you made, then you should make food daily. Niranjan says fine and leaves finishing the food. Shlok and Bharat also leave. Anjali sits for having food. Astha takes a fresh plate to have food and Anjali scolds her saying don’t you know love increases when you eat in your husband’s plate. Astha says how can someone eat like that. Anjali says like I m doing, we don’t throw the remaining food, if husband leaves over some food, a wife should finish it.
Astha feels this odd and takes Shlok’s plate and feels bad to eat it. She says sorry, I think love increases when we sit together and eat, not eating the left over food, I won’t eat this. Astha leaves from the table. Anjali says you have to eat this way if you want to have food, else be hungry, got it. Anjali looks at her with anger. Astha leaves. jyoti serves food to Abhay and his mum. Abhay smiles with his mum and speaks nicely to her. jyoti says I will have food later. He gets angry. His mum taunts jyoti and says don’t you know you will have to eat food in his plate with the left over food. Abhay washes his hand in the plate and says what will she eat now. His mum says don’t worry, I will make her eat food. He smiles. jyoti is tensed. Abhay says don’t know where is my sweet wife lost. She says you will get her back till tonight. Abhay’s mum scares jyoti with a stick and says you made me apologize to everyone, then how can you be fine. She says you insulted me infront of everyone, now see how I take revenge. (Two devils in human form- Abhay and his mum, poor jyoti!!)
Its night, Astha is crying in her room.
Niranjan sees Astha crying. He comes to her and says Astha…. She wipes her tears. She says you, I was…. He says I promised your dad that I won’t let tears come in your eyes, will you not tell me why are you sitting in darkness and crying, did Shlok tell you anything, tell me. Astha thinks how can I tell you whats Shlok’s reality. She says no one told me anything. Niranjan asks what is the matter, tell me. Astha says I was missing Ajju, as she did not come in my marriage. He says I will ask Shlok to take you tomorrow to your home to meet your parents. He says don’t worry about Anjali, she looks strict but is soft hearted. He says everything has a solution, goi and rest now. Astha leaves.Niranjan says Shlok…… He comes to Shlok and asks where is Astha. Shlok says she might be in her room, why.
Niranjan says sit. He says a husband should know what his wife is doing and where. Anjali comes there. Niranjan says take Astha to her house tomorrow, she is missing her family. Anjali says its our ritual that a bahu leaves after dying, I don’t like her going to her house so often. Shlok says fine, I will take her tomorrow as dad is saying. Shlok leaves. Anjali asks is it necessary for Astha to go. Niranjan says where were you when she was crying, it was me this time, next time it maybe anyone. Anjali says I will explain her. He says explain her how much value she should give to her parents and it would be good if Astha understands this soon. He says am I right. Anjali says you can never be wrong. Anjali thinks about Astha.
The next morning, Anjali is doing the puja at home. Astha comes to her and touches her feet. Anjali says I m letting you go home as Niranjan told, but if you cry infront of him again, I won’t leave you, stay with your family if you miss them so much, I don’t melt seeing your tears, come back till 12, as you have to make food before 1. Astha cries. Anjali says go now, Shlok is waiting for you outside. jaya sees this and smiles. jaya says Anjali, Sojal don’t come to my house like this, its been 7 years. Anjali says who is stopping me, you can take her with you now. jaya laughs and says I was joking. Anjali leaves. Shlok brings Astha to her house. He says stop, I brought you here as dad told me, if you do anything which I don’t want, it won’t be good for your dad.
He says where is your smile. She says I loved someone, and he away my smile. Shlok laughs and leaves. Avdhoot is worried at home. Ajju asks him not to worry and have trust in Bappa. She says talk to Astha, you will feel good. He says no, she will know everything if I talk to her and she will be worried. Astha comes home and Ajju is happy to see her. Astha smiles.Astha hugs Ajju. Astha says see how slim you are now, she jokes with her. Avdhoot and Kalindi are happy to see her. Ajju asks where is Shlok. Astha looks on.
