Chnadra looking for Nandini in the market, he taps a woman but it isn’t nandini,Chandra apologies and is disheartened. Dharma hiding in mahal,guards all around the mahal,she tires escaping them,she is caught by guards.nandini sees guards and hides,and hears we have to catch her and thinks if they find I’m not from Magad they will arrest me,and runs away.nandini goes hides in a house.
Guards asks her who are you and what you want,dharma says I’m from Champa,guards says we shall arrest you tell us what you want,dharma says ok arrest me take me to the king,nandini hiding in a house,she sees Chandras sketch in that house and thinks why do I find him so recognisable. She hears husband wife talk,we use to worship maharaj Chandragupta as god and now we don’t have even food
and it’s all because of mukhyarani,nandini thinks why is this sketch making me so uncomfortable.
Guards say maharaj we didn’t find anyone,the vendor says maharaj I’m sorry may be she wasn’t queen nandini, Chandra says don’t apologies you gave me a ray of new hope thank you and leaves. Guards say dharma maharaj doesn’t see anyone only mukhyarani deals with these issues,dharma says no I shall talk to maharaj, guards discuss may be she has some news about Queen Nandini let’s take her to maharaj.
Chandra near the house Nandini isnhdidng and asks is anyone here,he feels uneasy and gets in,Nandini feels restless and scared and hides,Chandra asks anyone in,the owner says maharaj you here,Chandra says I need some water,he says a common mans water,Chandra says water has no status,thank you,owner says king we hope your wishes are fulfilled and we miss to be under the rule of king like you,Chandra says thank you and leaves.
Adornus forces himself on madhumita,and says you should be happy that a prince eyed on you,bindusara steps in and slaps him,madhumita says please save me he abducted me,bindusara says why adornus,adornus says what should I do now,you have everything even my mother,even I want to enjoy,bindusara leaves.
Guard says maharaj we have a teen here and she has confidence similar to queen Nandini and she insists on seeing you,may be she has some news about Queen Nandini,Chandra says I would like to see her. Everyone is informed Chandra has arranged a Sabha.Apma says Helina always you take decisions after Nandini left why has Chandra called this Sabha,Helina says every Sabha has benefited us and so let’s see what this has brought us now.
Chandra takes his seat on the throne,and says get that teen here soon,dharma is brought in,everyone is confused,Chandra asks what is it,dharma says a king is like god to his people,but today a prince of this mahal your son has abducted my friend,I beg of you please help me,release my friend,Chandra says this is not possible,dharma says I’m very sure my friend is here,Chandra says guards search the mahal for her friend and if it’s true she will be given justice.helina thinks god adornus,how many times I have told you to stop this nonsense.
Guards get madhumita in,madhumita hugs Nandini and starts crying,Chandra asks who did this to you,bindusara walks in and says I did,all are shocked.Chandra walks to bindusara and asks madhumita is he the one are you sure,dharma says say something,she says yes maharaj it’s him.
(Madhumita says please don’t leave me alone,bindusara says don’t worry you are safe just remember if anyone questions you it’s me who did this to you and not adornus.)
Chandra says bindusara what all is this,you are crowned Yuvraj,you soon will be married,bindusara says yes I got her,dharma says you are the reason behind the destruction behind this state,and because of yuvrajs like you,bindusara says don’t you dare talk to me,Chandra says bindusara,I guess you have forgotten what I have taught you,you have forgotten the basic principles you need to stand by and now since bindusara is the culprit,dharma and madhumita shall be let free safely into their state and madhumita shall announce the punishment,madhumita says no nothing,dharma says why no,he should be punished,I shall stand on behalf of her and all women,he insulted a woman,Chandra says sure dharma go ahead,dharma says he tried snatching a woman’s self respect and so he should go through the same and so he should be dethroned from the title of Yuvraj.
Pre cap : Chandra sees Nandini,she has covered her face and entered mahal,Chandra chases her.
