Vanraj Fears Becoming a Joke
Vanraj tells Anupama a man is criticized for losing his wife and job, but becomes a joke if his wife cheats. He says the air he breathes turns poisonous, yet a husband must hide his and his wife’s infidelity. So Anupama shouldn’t reveal Kavya’s secret. Anupama agrees and advises remembering Kavya’s love too before deciding anything.
After Vanraj leaves, Anupama feels weak and dizzy but composes herself before Anuj sees her. Anuj asks about Vanraj’s late visit. Anupama says it’s a parental home issue she can’t discuss. Anuj understands and offers Shah’s help if needed.
Vanraj Rejects Kavya
Vanraj returns home. Kavya tries talking to him, but Vanraj ignores her, warns her not to touch him, and declares there’s nothing left to discuss. When Kavya apologizes, Vanraj asks if he should celebrate her pregnancy.
He says he truly loved her but she betrayed him. Kavya claims she didn’t betray him and listened calmly. Vanraj says nothing will change – she hid the truth and would have continued hiding it. Though he bears punishment for his own sins, he can’t forgive or accept her and the baby now.
Anupama recalls Vanraj’s words. Pakhi hugs her while sleeping. Anupama sings her a lullaby. Anuj watches them and leaves.
