Strange Love 18 August 2021: The Episode starts with Patel asking Shlok and Astha to place the idol. Niranjan says Shlok……… Shlok says Ji Baba. Anjali gives the idol to Astha and asks her to put it in the cradle. Anjali thinks in FB, how Sojal takes Kavya and says Anjali and Astha will not come, we will go before. She saw Sojal going without Baal Gopaal idol. Sita says she said you take every year, so this year too you will take it. Shlok and Astha place the idol in the cradle. Everyone smile. They pray. Patel asks Shlok and Astha to move the cradle to swing the idol. Shlok looks at Astha. Astha touches it and a lady stops her, saying not by hand, but by thread, and place haldi and Kumkum first. Astha does the rituals as told to her. The lady says this girl does not know anything, do Lord’s work by right hand, not left.
Shlok scolds the lady and says you are also human, what if Astha made a mistake, you are saying as if she made the idol fall, you elders should explain us, why are you making it an issue, she came here for first time, what if she does any small mistake. Varad and Anjali smile seeing Shlok defending Astha. Astha and Niranjan looks shocked. Shlok realizes his words and stops.Shlok holds the thread with right hand and Astha holds it too, to swing the cradle and idol. Anjali tells Niranjan that even Lord can’t separate lovers, I request you to leave them, and not risk their happiness for your benefit, see they are looking so good together. He says I did not think you will give me advice one day. He looks at her angrily. He asks her not to test her patience. Anjali says fine, if you feel peace by beating me, fine beat me, but forgive our kids, I have seen Shlok breaking because of Swati, I can’t see him again like that, you love Shlok a lot, why are you spoiling his life. He says he is making his life better, where is it written that love can’t change to hatred. He says he loves Shlok a lot, that’s why he will kick out Astha this time. She asks her to wipe her tears.
Sid works in the office and his colleague wishes him Happy Janmashtami. He says Varad is giving half day. Sid gets glad and says he wants to see few flats. Varad hears him. He says he has his parents, sister too with his wife, he will talk to Varad or get any freelance work. Sid comes to talk to Varad and asks did you call me. Varad says yes and gives him sweets.

Sid’s dad does hmmmm and he moves away. Riya smiles. Sid says you are lucky for me Jyoti. Riya says now we won’t go anywhere and smiles. Sid’s dad says congrats Renuka, Sid got promoted. She is annoyed that Sid shared happiness with Jyoti’s first. Jyoti gives her the letter and says its happening because of your blessings. She signs Sid. Sid says really Maa, I m here because of your blessings. He makes her eat sweets and she smiles.

Astha says the same and says this will happen when Baba changes or when everyone knows his truth. Astha goes to get water.
Niranjan comes to Anjali. He talks to Anjali what Astha was saying that she wants to change me, tell her you are the reason of problems in this house, not me, what should I tell you. You have gone over that side of the rope, and left all duties not thinking about anyone, for Astha, you should be ashamed. He scolds her. Anjali argues with him and says about her rights. Niranjan asks her not to have her happiness fly high. She cries and argues. He says congrats, your tongue became sharp, that girl taught you this. Anjali says yes, Astha taught me. She says Astha made me learn living, I had the habit to bear all your tortures, you did not respect me anytime. She says Astha gave me small happiness and made me realize whats the happiness. Niranjan gets angry.
He raises his hand on her and she stops him, saying now his anger won’t work on her, she won’t bear it now, Astha is right, you will be left alone if you don’t keep your ego and pride down, else you will regret later. He says in two days, I will show your place. He says he will see her and leaves with his file. Astha comes and pacifies Anjali.

Jyoti talks to Renuka. Renuka says if you decided everything, why am I needed here. Jyoti takes her to the room. Its very spacious. Renuka likes it and Jyoti says you keep this. Renuka thinks she can’t be so nice to give me this, maybe other room is more nice. She says no, I don’t want big room and gets angry.
