Shlok thinks how he got tensed when Swati left him and his search for her. He stopped Swati but she said I can’t stay with a selfish person like you and I? will go away from you so that you can’t find me. She finally left him. Astha comes to him and he turns to see her. She says I… He gets up and slaps her hard. Astha is shocked and puzzled.

(Sad Version song) Astha looks at him and leaves for her house. Shlok looks at her while she walks away from her. Astha thinks shall I ask him about Swati. Astha turns and looks at him. Shlok leaves. Astha says he said me sorry and I did not reply him, what is happening to me. She says today Shlok slapped me but I did not get angry, why. Kalindi is happy to see Astha and hugs her. She sees her in a saree. Astha says Shlok gave it to me. Kalindi says hwy did you wear it, you know his mum, when she comes to know then… Astha tells her that her clothes were bad, so Shlok offered me this saree. Kalindi tells her about Anjali.

He says don’t take her name else I will forget what relation we have and also that I m here because of my dad. He requests her not to interfere in his personal life. Anjali looks on annoyed. Astha is unable to sleep thinking about Shlok. She thinks how Shlok scolded her sweetly. She smiles. She looks at the saree and goes to it.
