She says Pankti was here, where is she now, tell me. She says I know Manav made her leave the house. JD thinks Anita came at right time. He scolds her for coming. Manav says yes, I have made Pankti leave, you can do anything, I m not scared, what could I do, how would I let Ahaan marry Pankti after knowing everything.

Sheetal recalls Anita’s words. She gets angry and holds Anita’s hair to drag her. Everyone gets shocked. Sheetal says this should be done with people like you, else families break, now tell me a word and show, I will murder you and hire that lawyer to defend me, you are blaming everyone, you don’t have a status to stand here. She scolds Anita. Anita says fine, tell me what will you call Pankti when Ahaan marries her, bahu or Sautan. She says what respect does this family have, where a son is marrying his uncle’s mistress, what respect does that wife has, whose husband keeps a mistress. Sheetal rages and slaps her.
Anita threatening to ruin everyone. She says I won’t move till I get Pankti. She sits there. Sheetal fumes. The men ask Pankti not to try to run, be comfortable, they are just following their boss’ order. She asks who is their boss. He says you will find when the time comes. Ahaan looks for Pankti. Uday says Pankti is gone, you have to understand this. Ahaan says no, she can’t leave me. He asks more people about her. He says she has to come back hearing my voice. He shouts Pankti. Pankti cries.

Aparna says no, this can’t happen. JD says Pankti might have Manav’s words seriously, till she comes back, we should let Anita stay here. Anita cries aloud. Sheetal says I don’t know anything, I don’t want to see her face, throw her out, your turn will come soon. They all leave. JD calls someone. Anita says sorry JD. He asks what are you doing here, go and sit there. She says what could I do, Sheetal was beating me. He says you will have to tolerate when Sheetal gives me divorce. He says you did good to kidnap Pankti, don’t let her come in front of Sheetal till matter is resolved. He asks did I kidnap Pankti…. He asks her to sit there. Kaira shows Ahaan’s video to Aparna. Ahaan calls Aparna and says I didn’t get Pankti anywhere, don’t know my voice will reach her or not.

He says you are the best mom, you always show me the way to come out of the problem, thanks. He says my voice will reach Pankti.Pankti asks why did you do this. Poorva says I did this to save you from JD and mum, I didn’t had any other way to get you here, you would have not come if I called you, this is for your betterment, sit. She asks Pankti to have food. Pankti says no. Poorva says its your fav dish, I will have it if you don’t. Pankti says no, I m tired of fighting, seeing my loved one fighting for me, what’s the use to fight when I know my fate has defeat, I feel I should go in mum and JD’s team, so that their bad time also starts. Poorva and Pankti feed each other. Poorva says Kaira called, she told me what all happened at home, thank God I got you. Pankti hugs her. Monty looks on.
Pankti says there is no use to get scared of all this, Lord finds new ways to upset people, don’t worry. She apologizes to Monty. He says its fine, my personality is such, girls get violent seeing me, I got beaten up too, chill, Ahaan is so lucky. Pankti says don’t know, how is Ahaan. He gives her phone. He signs Poorva to come. They leave. Pankti sees Ahaan’s video and cries. She says I can never get annoyed with you.
