Rakesh says now I will be the one who will do whatever is needed to be done! He turns and finds Anand staring at him in shock. Anand drops the suitcases. Bela rushes to his side. Thank God that you are here. Tai ji says it is good he is home. Your beloved daughter ran away with her lover! Bela tells her let to him breathe. Tai ji does not relent. I told you that girls are vulnerable. She ran away! Tau ji tells them to calm down. The door is open. Everyone’s words echo in Anand’s head. He passes out on the sofa. There are marks of tears on his face.
Sameer looks at the watch. It is 8:30 PM. Chacha ji will be home by 9 and so will we. They all pay their respects to Mata Rani and start for Agarwal House.
Anand has gained conscious. Preeti suggests visiting a doc. Bela cries
seeing his condition. Do not worry so much. Tai ji says only Anand fell now. See what all will happen because of your daughter! Rakesh asks his elder brother what will be fixed now. He is here. He thought Naina to be his daughter. Can he bring her back? Anand is quiet. Rakesh begins to go when they hear a bike honking. Preeti goes to the balcony to check. She tells her family that Naina is here. Tai ji holds her tightly. You don’t run away now. Preeti rushes back to the balcony followed by her family members. Society people get curious. Rakesh is about to throw a flower pot but Tau ji stops him.
All the kids head upstairs. Tau ji, Tai ji and Rakesh glare at them. Rakesh pulls Sameer by his collar. Naina tries to stop him but he pushes her away. Rakesh slaps Sameer. He picks a stick to hit him too but Tau ji stops him. He moves him aside. Tau ji walks up to the kids but Anand tells him that Naina is his responsibility. I will surely fulfil my responsibility. He steps forward. Naina tries to explain to Chacha ji that they dint elope. We were only waiting for you to return. Anand slaps her shocking everyone.
Voiceover – Naina:
I had been slapped by everyone many times in the past by Tau ji, Tai ji and Papa but I never felt bad before. With Chacha ji slapping me, I thought as if everything had come to an end. After all, Chacha ji was the only one who could pull Sameer and me out of this problem safely!
Vishakha and Mama ji have checked with Sameer’s friends and everywhere but there is no news. Bobby wants to go to police. Vishakha suggests waiting for another half an hour. Bobby taunts her for showering her love on her son like always. If it was up to me, I would have broken all my ties with him and would have made you do that too!
Sameer tries to say something but Anand asks him to leave. Take everyone and go. Sameer tries again but Anand tells him to leave or I don’t know what he will do. Sameer asks him if he will threaten them now. We wont be afraid as we dint commit any mistake. We thought you are with us! Rakesh questions him. Sameer says I am quiet as Naina is your daughter. If someone else had said this then! Tau ji scolds Sameer and Naina. You have called your lover here to insult your family members! Naina asks Sameer to go. Anand takes Naina with him. She tries to explain to him but in vain. Rakesh reprimands Sameer and Naina’s friends but Sameer tells him to talk to him directly. Rakesh tells him that police will talk to him. Tau ji tells Sameer that he stopped his brother once but he wont be able to do it again. Leave. Sameer refuses. I wont leave till the time I am sure Naina is in no problem. Rakesh raises his hand to slap him again but Naina calls out to him. Rakesh stops himself reluctantly. Leave! Naina again asks Sameer to go. Anand, Bela and Preeti head inside with Naina.
Anand starts scolding Naina. She insists she dint do anything wrong. He stops himself from slapping her. I came back so happy. It would have been better if I had died. Bela and Preeti request him not to say so. Anand says everyone kept saying that I have only one daughter. I always considered her to be our daughter too but she proved me wrong today! I trusted her but what did she do? Naina and Preeti cry. Please listen to Naina once. Anand does not relent. He keeps scolding Naina. I have heard you enough. I cannot hear anything else. Forgive me! Saying so, he walks out of the room followed by Bela. Naina breaks down. Preeti hugs her sister. Sameer honks yet again from downstairs. He looks miffed. Naina goes till the balcony. Preeti closes the bathroom door.
Sad song plays in the background as Naina and Sameer look at each other sadly. She murmurs at him to go. He shakes his head but Naina folds her hands in front of him. Preeti nods reassuringly at him. Sameer drives away. Naina cries.
Tai ji paces worriedly in the house. I couldn’t trust Anand today. He quietened her today. Tau ji too hasn’t seen him like that before. Tai ji says it is too late though or Naina wouldn’t have gained so much freedom. Tau ji adds that he thought Anand will support naina like every time. This time it is different. They go quiet as Anand comes there. Tau ji asks him what they should do next. Tai ji points out that now neither Sharad nor his family will agree. Rakesh tells them that Naina is his responsibility. No one has to worry about her. I hope you would have understood what a responsibility really means. You (Anand) are responsible for whatever has gone wrong. Bela tries to stop him but Anand admits he was wrong. I couldn’t fulfil my responsibilities. Forgive me if possible. Rakesh looks away.
Vishakha is praying. Bobby asks her to come to police station. He wouldn’t come by all this. Mama ji tells him it isn’t needed. I had a word with Commissioner. The matter will be taken care of subtly. Bobby tells him to understand the criticality of the situation. Mama ji notices Sameer by the door. They all rush to him. Sameer reaches Maheshwari House. Bobby asks him about what they have been hearing. Sameer replies that he wouldn’t know what they have been hearing about. Bobby tells him not to joke. You eloped with a girl? You aren’t even ashamed of it! Sameer declines. Vishakha asks him why Naina’s father had come here then.
Voiceover – Sameer:
If I was strong like the youngsters of today then I would have surely fought back or given them a piece of my mind. I too dint keep quiet that day though. I spoke too. It was about my and Naina’s marriage after all.
Precap: Tau ji tells Rakesh they need to talk to Anand before coming upon any decision. He has been raising her after all. Tai ji suggests that they leave for Rajasthan asap. We will find a groom for Naina and get her married to someone asap. Preeti is eavesdropping.
