The clients say no need to give explanation, just Agnihotri name is enough for us. Varad asks when will you sign the deal. They say whenever Niranjan and Shlok say us, and praise Shlok a lot. They leave. Varad gets angry.
Riya gets ready. Jyoti asks her to wear any saree and jewelry. Sid comes and asks Riya to get ready fast. Riya says she needs time to get ready. Sid says Jyoti gets ready fast. He says he likes the guy and Riya will be happy with him. Renuka comes and asks Jyoti not to say about her family, else they will reject Riya, and goes to welcome the guests. Varad comes home and is angry and frustrated. He says everyone feels I m nothing, family does not value me and even outsiders, no one thinks I m also qualified like Shlok, what should I do to prove myself.Sojal comes and asks him to share things. He says nothing can be fine now and tells her how everyone compares him with Niranjan and Shlok. He says they feel I m not like Shlok, and yes, I m not Shlok, I m Varad. Varad says he loves Shlok, he is his brother, it does not mean everyone ignores me, I m not getting my rights of being an elder son, whatever I do, no one gets happy, not even Niranjan, what should I do to make Baba proud of me and say I m his son. He says he always thinks about Shlok, I m here to help and support him and he can’t see this, Shlok is everywhere, I will get mad if I hear his name again.
Sojal calms him and says Baba loves you too. He says yes, he loves me, but not like he loves Shlok. He says if Shlok comes back, I will get back to square one and no one will worry for me.She says I know, and says he will win Niranjan’s heart soon, by his hardwork. She says Niranjan used to have foot pain and Shlok used to sense it without anyone knowing it, he used to clean his feet by his hanky and he earned that place. She says even I had this problem with Astha, Astha always worked by heart and I lagged behind and you told me to become like Astha. She says Astha used to work for others, which I could not do, so I accepted I m different from Astha, you also accept it that you and Shlok are different, maybe Shlok senses Niranjan’s pain more than you. He understands and says yes, I hae managed home and office. Varad says I have to become Shlok and I promise I will do this some day, Niranjan will love me and he will have only Varad in his heart.
Riya meets the guy and Renuka is glad as his mum accepts Riya. She asks Riya does she like the guy. Riya smiles. Renuka says congrats and gives sweets. She says say thanks to Jyoti for whom we are happy and saying yes. She says they are lucky to get a good bahu like Jyoti. They like Renuka’s mentality for giving a chance to Jyoti and accepting her as bahu. Renuka smiles. Varad comes to Niranjan. Niranjan sees Shlok in his tab and the video has Shlok and Niranjan coming from jogging. Shlok calls him his ideal and he can’t fail him, this failure is his victory. Niranjan smiles. Shlok says he will massage his feet and get haldi milk. Niranjan says you are every medicine of my pain and smiles. Varad looks on.
Niranjan hugs the tab and misses Shlok. Varad leaves. Astha sits and waits for the customers, as no one has come till now. Apsara comes and taunts Astha. She then asks her to give a roti roll and offers Rs 10. She says she is doing a favor by starting her business. Astha says she will give roti roll and not take money as she is family. Rekha gives Rs 500 and says she is starting her business. She says she is making it a good start and gives a big order.

Niranjan is glad and thinks about Shlok. He says you have magic in your hands and you are the medicine of my pain Shlok. Varad is shocked and gets angry.
He says its me, Varad. Niranjan opens eyes and looks at him. He says I m sorry son, Shlok used to do this always so… Varad asks is he not getting relieved. Niranjan says he is, but real relieve will be when Shlok gets back home. Shlok makes the presentation and the manager likes it.
