Strange Love 9 April 2021: starts with Shlok asking Astha to get ready as they have to go to the site. She says I have work pending, I can’t come. Shlok stops Astha and says I m not asking you, I m telling you that we have to go. He asks what happened to you as you are not giving proper replies. She says nothing. He says look at me and says your face is showing… She says nothing. He says fine, as you say, lets go now. Astha nods yes. He smiles seeing her and leaves from the cabin. Astha goes after him. They come to the site and check the area space. Astha is silent. He notices her behavior and shows her the site area.
He says note it what I m saying, She starts noting down. He says we need to take care of hygiene. Astha is lost. He says hello?, Did you hear? He says we need store room too, lets check it. Astha does not move. He says shall we go? Astha goes with him. Astha is nervous as she is alone with Shlok. Shlok looks at her. Astha and Shlok come upstairs. Her dupatta gets stuck in the fan. Shlok helps her and asks her to take care of herself as he won’t be with her always. He says don’t think I m touching you purposely. She says its not like that, I have to go office after this work ends. Shlok brings her to the mandap and says right here my dad and mum will be married again. He says it will also be their anniversary celebrations. Shlok asks Astha did you like this, I think the space for pheras would be less, lets check it. Astha looks on. He goes to Astha and holds her hand. Astha is puzzled.
Shlok says lets go. She thinks I can’t take pheras with him. The mantras plays in the background as Shlok walks the rounds with Astha holding her hand. He tells her that I want my dad to have what he wants. Astha looks at him. Shlok leaves her hand and says I want my dad does not have any problem. Astha leaves. Shlok looks at her and goes after her. She gets hurt by him. Her wound starts bleeding. He says I m sorry, look at Astha, trust me, I was taking the pheras only for trial. He says this wound, how? Astha cries. He says how did you get hurt. She says its fine. He says its a wound and should not be left without care. He says show me. Saiyyan Ve… plays…..
Shlok cares for Astha’s hurt hand and blows on her wound. Iss pyaar ko…. plays…. in the background. Astha closes her eyes and Shlok looks at her and he does the dressing. He says its done, now you can open your eyes. Khuda……. plays……. Astha runs and leaves. Shlok looks for her. Astha runs somewhere and is stunned.
She smiles and could not believe what Shlok did. She thinks of Shlok and how they came closer day by day. Their love moments are shown and the song Iss pyaar ko…. plays…. She thinks why is my heratbeat looking different today, am I in love with Mr. Shlok. Shlok calls Astha and she hides. Niranjan is angry and says I won’t talk to Atul now. Anjali comes to him with tea. He does not like the tea and throws it. He scolds Anjali and leaves. Anjali picks the tea cup pieces and cries. Kalindi is waiting for Astha and thinks of calling her. Astha reaches home and Shlok calls Astha. Her phone rings and Astha cuts the call. Shlok says how dare you, pick up my call. Shlok calls again, and she rejects. Shlok gets angry and says Astha you will surely be in a big problem, I promise.
Astha tries to behave normal. Kalindi asks whats the matter, did anything happen in office. Astha says no, I m tired. She says shall I go and rest. She leaves. Kalindi talks to Ajju adn says maybe something happened with Shlok, maybe a fight. Ajju says let her take rest, she will be fine and then have food. Astha thinks whatever I m feeling for Shlok is wrong. Her phone rings again. Astha cuts the call again. Her phone rings and she keeps disconnecting. Shlok is calling from a landline this time. Kalindi asks Astha why are you not talking to Shlok. Astha says its a call from office, I will talk to them later. Astha switches off her phone. Shlok is angry. Shlok says you have disconnected my call, I can’t tolerate this. Kalindi applies oil to Astha’s hair and talks to her. She says if you don’t like this work, you can leave it, we don’t have any problem. The door bell rings, Astha thinks did Shlok come here. She goes to see who is it. She wishes its not Shlok. She sees Shlok outside her house.
Astha seeing Shlok outside the house. She thinks why did he come to her house. She wishes he leaves soon. Kalindi comes and asks who is it. Astha says its Shlok, as I forgot some papers and he came to give me. Kalindi is surprised. Astha makes excuses and goes to meet him. Kalindi wants to call him inside the house. Shlok scolds Astha and says how dare you cut my call, I can’t bear this. Atha asks him to calm down as everyone will hear it. Shlok shouts. He says I did not had any intentions when I took the pheras with you. Astha shuts his mouth. Kalindi says Shlok and his mum are after us. His mum wants us to keep Astha away from Shlok and look now, Shlok came to our house to meet Astha.
Kalindi says Astha should have called him inside the house. Shlok looks at Astha and Khuda… plays… Shlok holds her towards him. Astha is shocked. He says I did not finish yet. She says I have forgiven you, now please go from here. Kalindi is watching them. Shlok leaves her and says next time don’t cut my call. Shlok leaves. Astha goes inside the house and Kalindi confronts her. Astha says I m going to sleep and leaves. Kalindi is worried. Her mum asks her what happened. Kalindi says yes I m worried because I saw them talking, it did not look they were talking about any office work. Her mum says I will talk to Astha and will know whats going on.
The next morning, Anjali talks to Niranjan and says I don’t think Astha can take care of the event well. Niranjan does not listen to her. Shlok comes and greets Niranjan.
He says Astha will take good care of the event and talks to Niranjan that we have only few days left as we can’t any new event management company at this time. Shlok says Astha is doing good work. Anjali is angry. Shlok leaves.Astha comes to office and sees chocolates, teddy and flowers. She sees a letter that has her name on it. The card reads I m sorry, for everything which I should have not told, but I can’t help it, I m like this, I hope you understand that this is not easy for me, you are the first girl to whom I m saying sorry. Shlok comes to her. Astha turns and looks at him. Shlok comes close to her and Khuda ….. plays…… He walks by her side. Astha smiles and accepts those things. She hears someone speaking against Shlok. The girl says bad words to Shlok and says he fired me, I would have killed him. Astha stops her from saying and takes Shlok’s side. The girl says you spent a night with him and you changed. Astha says shut up.
The girl says something is going on in between you and Shlok. She says everyone knows seeing your eyes and face. She says do you have any love affair with Shlok. Astha says listen, its none of your business, its my personal life. She says you are no one to ask me. The girl leaves saying don’t get into love with him else you will regret. Astha says thanks, but you don’t need to think about us. The peon comes and says Shlok is calling Astha. Anjali gives a list to Sojal and asks her to start working. Niranjan calls Anjali.
Niranjan says we will call Astha and her family too. Anjali says why. Niranjan favours Astha and says we should skip seeing their mistakes and accept them. Kaka comes and says what are you saying, who will understand if Anjali does not understand you. He taunts Anjali.
Niranjan asks Kaka to be in limits and speak with respect. Kaka says you look good when you scold because you look true. Anjali asks Niranjan not to worry as she will send the invitation to Astha’s family. Kaka smiles.
Astha comes to Shlok’s cabin. He says whats this kiddish thing, why were you arguing with that girl. She says she was speaking against you. Shlok gets close to her and Astha moves backward. Shlok says so what. Astha says I was explaining her. Shlok asks but why, what was the need. Astha says she was saying about us. Shlok asks what about us, what did she say exactly. Astha says she was saying that I …. Shlok asks what…. Astha says I will …
she says if you know everything then why do you want to know from me. Shlok looks at her. Astha leaves. Shlok smiles picking the flowers. Astha comes to her cabin and says like you want Shlok, it won’t happen. You won’t know what I feel, if you are rude, then I m too rude, you will be the first to admit your feelings, not me. She says everything is on the Lord. Mangesh comes with the file and says it has questions from Anjali and we need to work on it. Shlok thinks Astha has to bend infront of him, what to do. She says you have faces Shlok, you think you are adamant Astha, but you did not see me. He says by hook or by crook, you have to bend infront of me.
