She taunts Dinesh and says Rangoli is also addicted to phone, she used to call Ahaan so much. Rangoli says I used to call normally. Aparna says Rangoli called Ahaan 34 times and then 76 times too. Rangoli says Ahaan also called me. Aparna says he would have called you 8 times maximum, what’s the reason for her calls. Rangoli says I thought he is my good friend. Aparna says such a good friend that you called him home at night.
Rangoli says I didn’t call him home, he used to come himself, I called him as I was afraid.Aparna asks afraid of whom. Dinesh says what’s the relation with this case. Aparna says you said a lawyer’s work is to present the case and judge will decide. Pankti goes to call Uday. Aparna says Ahaan’s marriage was fixed, you convinced Ahaan to come for shoot. Rangoli says yes, it was right for his career. Dinesh asks what’s this blame. Aparna says I can prove, Rangoli had planned this before, she used to call him at odd hours, she acted scared to get his attention.
She shows some pics and says look at this carefully, you can see Rangoli, she was normal when she left from room, when she reached lobby, she acted scared, why, Ahaan was in room, what happened with her.She questions Rangoli. Dinesh says Ahaan was sure that his mum will prove him right, there was CCTV camera there, is this a classroom or court, we are presenting proof and she is presenting stories. Pankti says it isn’t a story, but the truth, we have a witness to prove that Rangoli manipulated Ahaan to come to her room. Rangoli recalls the man and gets shocked.
