He says I accepted her no also and now I request you all to accept this decision and forgive Shlok for announcing infront of everyone. Kalindi asks Astha is she under any pressure.

Niranjan stops Anjali and calms her down. Anjali stops. Sojal is angry on Shlok and still tells her husband that her family got insulted. He says you are still telling me the same thing. She says its because I got insulted, you won’t understand. He says I think that happened whats was going to be. He says Shlok should marry the one whom he loves. He says not everyone are lucky to select their life partner. Sojal looks at him. She says she won’t Astha succeed in this house. Atul tells Niranjan that I know your family has everything, we are lucky to have a relation with your family, but the situation is making me afraid. He says its about my daughter’s life. He says I only want my Astha’s happiness. He says so I request you to… Niranjan says there is no need to request, we also wanted Astha for Shlok, don’t worry, we will keep Astha as our daughter. Ajju is happy and says whatever happens is for the good, now forget everything and make a new start. She says I will bring sweets. Atul sends Astha to Kalindi. Atul welcomes Niranjan. Shlok goes to Anjali and congratulates her. Anjali is angry and looks on.
Kalindi is worried. Astha comes to her and hugs her. Astha says I m sorry mum, but I m saying the truth, I did not know this would happen, why would I lie to you, but till you say yes, my happiness will be incomplete, please agree to this. Kalindi says we are worried about your happiness, how will you be happy in that house. Atul calls Astha. Astha tells Kalindi lets go. Kalindi wipes her tears.

Niranjan says now we will leave, I will find the mahurat for marriage and will let you know. Atul says yes. Niranjan and Anjali leave and Shlok is alone with Astha. Khuda… plays…. He looks at her and Astha starts going. Shlok holds her hand and stops her and says I said what you wanted to hear, but you still not tell anything.
He says I m waiting and eats the sweets. He leaves. Astha smiles. Ajju says Niranjan is right, the matter is out in the society, its better if we say yes to it, and Astha also wants this. Kalindi says Astha does not know whats better for her. Atul says we can’t avoid Astha’s happiness and change the fate, maybe this is her fate. Niranjan tells Shlok I m very happy today as you have moved ahead of your past forgetting Swati. He says this step is really good. Shlok says whatever happened with Swati was wrong and I can’t forget that.
He says I told before that no one can repeat anything with Astha as I won’t let anything happen. He says every thing has to go through me before reaching Astha.
He warns Anjali. Astha is in her room and thinks of Shlok’s announcement and his lovely words. Her phone rings. Ajju asks Kalindi to see Astha’s face and realize as she is very happy. Kalindi says I m worried because of Anjali as Anjali reminds me of that woman, you know who. Ajju says stop thinking about Anjali, think about Shlok, he is a nice man. Kalindi says he might never be with Astha always. Ajju says don’t worry, you are overthinking. Kalindi says that woman made my life hell. Ajju says you don’t worry, we all are with Astha. Kalindi says where will we be with Astha, how can we save her from Anjali, I will talk to Astha and explain her. Shlok is talking to Astha and says let me guess, you are thinking about me. Astha says no way. He says then why did you hold your locket. She turns and sees around. He says you are not keeping your promise. She says I did not make any promise to you. He says now its your turn, say it. Astha says no, not now. He says you will meet me, hold my hands and then tell me whats in your heart. Shlok says I…
Astha says Aai…. is coming, bye. Shlok smiles. Kalindi asks Astha did you think before taking this decision. She says wedding means a life long relation not only with huisband but also with the family, do you think you will be happy in that house. Astha says you don’t worry, I will manage. Kalindi says are you sure and gets emotional. Astha says why are you worried, I m sure I will be happy with Shlok.
Kalindi says Shlok won’t be with you always, if anyone does anything with you then… Astha says everyhting will be fine, you see. Astha says don’t you trust your values, my values are solid and won’t amend. She says I will manage Anjali. The next morning, Shlok’s brother congratulates Shlok.

Astha hears them and cries. Everyone looks at Astha. Kalindi hugs Astha. Astha says I don’t want to go leaving you, dad and Ajju. Ajju says ok, I will say no to Shlok and tell him Astha don’t want to marry. Astha says no. Everyone laughs. Astha is shy and leaves.Anjali asks Sojal how long will she take to make food. Sojal says I was thinking Astha will come here in ten days, will she be able to learn our house rules. Anjali says I will make her as I want, I will make all difficulties for her in this house. She says its not easy to become Agnihotri’s house. Sojal smiles. Shlok brings Astha somewhere. She asks tell me where you brought me. Astha has a cloth on her eyes, Shlok opens it and disappears. Astha calls him out and asks where are you. He says you won’t get a better chance and a better place than this to speak your heart out, I want to hear it from you, I m waiting. Astha looks on.
Shlok comes to her and says tell it. They get closer. Astha looks at him and music plays….. They have an eyelock. Shlok smiles. Chupke se Ahista…. Ho raha hoon lapata…. uljha sawalon me, ab tere hi khayaalo mein, kaisi ye chahat hai, roke ye na ruke, ek pal na rahat hai, dhadkan gawa chuke… iss pyaar ko kya naam doon………….. plays…… Astha is shy. Astha hugs him. She looks at him and runs.Astha stops. Mann ki munder pe…. plays… (Female version of Iss pyaar ko song) Shlok comes to her and gets closer. He says tell it. Astha smiles and hugs him. He insists. Astha says I love you. Shlok smiles. Hum tere bin ab reh nahi sakte…. Tum hi ho… plays… Shlok stops her and looks at her. He says tell it once again looking in my eyes. Astha is shy and looks somewhere else. He holds her face and says tell me. Astha says I love you and hugs him being shy. Astha tells it many times. Her phone rings. Anjali calls her.
Shlok cuts the call. Astha says why did you cut the call, it was Anjali’s call, she will think I have cut the call. He says you have to choose any one, either me or my mum. She says I will choose you, but I have to stay in your house and I can’t disrespect Anjali. Shlok says don’t spoil my mood taking her name. He says these moments are mine, even if I die. Astha keeps her hand on his mouth and says don’t say like this, we will be together for the entire life. Anjali calls her again. Astha talks to her. Anjali asks her to come home before 3pm. Astha says I will come soon. Anjali says I want to explain our house rules before marriage, you are going to be Agnihotri’s bahu, you have to amend. Shlok cuts the call. Astha says whats this, she will feel I m disconnecting the call. Astha hugs Shlok and asks him not to be angry. Shlok holds her hand and says you have to promise me that you won’t let anyone come in between us. Astha promises. Shlok takes her phone.
Astha takes it back and smiles. She says I should leave now, I have to reach your house before 3. Shlok says there is one more surprise, come on. He covers her eyes with his hands and says I m taking to meet you with much more love. He shows her photos. Astha is surprised and cries with happiness. Astha hugs him. She says I love you and thank you for coming in my life and making it special. He says this is the beginning. She sees something and says one more surprise. She says its a house model and thanks him. He says don’t thank me because I will be giving your surprises the whole life as I will ne getting extra hugs. She says is this our house. He says yes. They talk about the house and Astha is shy when Shlok tells her about their bedroom. They look at each other.

He says last surprise, and its better than this. She looks at the house. He says I will fulfill your dreams. The house is about to fall and Astha holds it. Anjali is waiting for Astha.

He asks her to wait for him and he will come after parking the car. Astha calls Sojal. Sojal says where are you, we are waiting for you. Astha says I will come late, say sorry to Anjali from my side. Sojal says we have some rules. Astha says I m stuck somewhere, I will come soon. Sojal says fine, I will talk to Anjali. Astha thinks Sojal will inform Anjali that she will be late.
