Rupy urges Aparna to make kheer.
Imlie is frustrated when people say they didn’t see Aditya. She falls apart. Malini weeps and asks Anu why. Everything went wrong. Satyakam wanted to take Imlie with them, but he chose Aditya. Meethi arrives and tells Malini that she should at least realize her mistake. Because of her husband, Imlie is in danger. Malini claims Aditya is also my husband. Meethi said that if he were your husband, he would be with you. Meethi says that she once loved Dev, but never asked for his rights or snatched Anu’s rights. Malini, however, is a weak individual who placed Aditya’s safety at risk to fulfill her own agenda. Meethi believes that Imlie will save Aditya, and will bring him home.
