Today again was a hot and happening episode.
Armaan is perplexed at seeing the real balance sheets. He asks Jassi if she has forgotten that he had asked her to forge them. She replies that she does not forget anything. She says that it is necessary to first analyze the truth in order to convert it into lies. Armaan asks helplessly by when will the false ones be ready. She says she'll do it by tonight. Raj reminds her that the board meeting is the next day and that they need time to study the finances. (Armaan & Raj looked really helpless). Jassi says that she cannot help it, she needs that much time; haste may make her commit blunders. Raj quickly says that she can take her time as one small mistake can ruin everything. Raj then goes to Jassi and says cautiously that he hopes that she does not have a copy of the true balance sheets. She says she doesn't. Raj tells her that these true balance sheets are like dynamite; she needs to be very very careful that it doesn't blast. He asks her to store it on her computer using a secure password. She nods her head and goes into her cabin.
Armaan tells Raj that his is dead, he really is. Raj tells Armaan not to panic. Armaan tells him that these balance sheets indicate that they will need 6 months more to pull Gulmohur out of this financial crisis.
Just then Armaan's parents enter. Armaan jumps to see them. The file containing the true balance sheets is in his hands, which he quickly passes to Raj. Puru greets the young men. Armaan tells his dad that he's surprised to see them suddenly. Puru smiles and says that why does he need an appointment to visit his
own company. Armaan smiles and says they are welcome. Raj flips through the file as if it is a fashion magazine and says goofily that the models in it are really good.
He excuses himself. Raj runs to Jassi's cabin and begs her to hide the file. Jassi closes her eyes in disgust.
Meanwhile, Puru comments that his son is so busy that he couldn't even accompany them for dinner. He then excuses himself & heads towards Jassi's cabin. Armaan almost clutches Raj in fear.
Puru greets Jassi. She stands up & asks him how he is. He says that he is fit as usual and says that he knows everything has to be fine. He says that he trusts her and knows that the company is in good hands. He smiles and leaves with no more questions and Jassi sits down in relief.
Puru comes back and Armaan suggests that they go to the boardroom and talk. His mother says that today they have to talk of a lot of other things..of his wedding. Armaan can do nothing but smile. Jassi overhears this and looks upset.
Nandini asks Jassi how she is. She replies weakly that she is ok. She looks away and tries to avoid eye contact. Nandini asks her what the matter is. Jassi says that there are so many problems but no solutions. She tells Nandini that she cannot work here anymore and that she has decided to resign. Nandini asks her if she has asked Armaan about it. Jassi says that if she asks him, he will not let her leave. Nandini holds Jassi by her shoulders, forcing her to look at her and asks her if she
can leave. Jassi says that she will, after the board meeting. Nandini asks her what she has thought of doing after she leaves GM. Jassi says that she might look for some other job. Nandini tells her that her contract for GM ends after the collection. After that she will be leaving too and will be arranging a beauty pageant. She says that she is in need of an assistant to help her with that. She asks Jassi if she is interested in working with her. She tells her that a new place and new people can help in forgetting old things. She asks Jassi to think about it and let her know. Nandini leaves.
Nandini enters and tells Maddy that she has taken care of most of the things, the TV crew, the show venue, the lights etc. Maddy is cribbing big time. Mallika tells Nandini that he has just fires his new assistant. Maddy says that he could not help it, no one can take Ruby's place & that he is going insane without her. Mallika says that Maddy keeps thinking only of himself and says that he should talk to Armaan. Maddy snaps back that what is her problem? If she does not like his face then he will leave; and puhleeeez..did she say he talk to Armaan?? He says he is least interested in getting beaten up by Armaan, the way Jassi's boyfriend got. Mallika goes red with embarrassment as Nandini is present there and says "Maddy, please..." Maddy continues that did she notice the red marks on Armaan's face, courtesy the slap from Jassi? Mallika can't believe her ears and Nandini looks shocked too. Nandini quickly tries to engage Maddy in her talks to avoid any future sparks and Mallika looks like ferocious.
Mallika storms into Jassi's cabin, looking like a wounded lioness. She directly confronts Jassi that how dare she slapped Armaan. Jassi says that it was an "accident". Mallika says sarcastically that wow, what an accident, does she mean that she raised her hand and Armaan's cheek came in between?? Jassi explains that Armaan sir had drunk a bit too much and if she hadn't slapped him, he would have killed Nandu. Mallika says bitterly that this means that Jassi had slapped him when he was in her senses, purposefully and that this was a calculated move. She asks Jassi if she has thought of the consequences. She shouts that several times before, Jassi had crossed her limits, but the previous night, she had gone beyond that. She says that Armaan was the one who had given Jassi some respect in her life, and she was the one who took his respect away? She says bitterly that how selfish can she be, how cheap. She tells Jassi that if she even dares to do such a thing again, she will not find a worse enemy than her, Mallika. Jassi says that there was no other way to stop him. Mallika retorts that Jassi has solutions for all great problems, then why did she go to such extremes this time? She chides that the only reason for her behavior can be her class, low that it is. Jassi closes her eyes in pain. Mallika says harshly that does she remember what she was when she had entered GM? A girl in search of her job, who was lucky enough to have got to be the Chairman's secretary, and luckier that the Chairman himself promoted her from secretary to his assistant. Her words hit Jassi like bullets. She says that Jassi may think she is on top of the world, flaunting her rich boyfriend in her Mercedes, and visiting fancy restaurants; but to her
she was , is and will always remain: a secretary, a low-class secretary. Armaan may think she is great, but to her she will always be a mere employee of the company. She turns to leave but stops and says that Jassi better remember that Gulmohur belongs to the Suris and the Seths...(OH OH!!)and that she never ever dare to even reach out to Armaan.
Mallika leaves. Jassi sits down, the tears flowing from her eyes.
Armaan, Raj, Mallika, Ila and Puru are all in the boardroom, when Aryan enters. (Seen them all together after such a long time!!)
Aryan greets everyone, and a nerve on Armaan's forehead stiffens. Aryan says that he wants to discuss something important. Puru says that if it is to do with business, then they will discuss it tomorrow at the board meeting, in the presence of the Board Of Directors. Today they all will discuss something else: Mallika & Armaan's wedding preparations. Mallika smiles happily, Armaan quite fakely (or rather relieved?)
Aryan looks at Armaan and says that he has just one question, to which he would like to have a quick answer. He asks Armaan if he knows how much money his secretary has in her account. Armaan looks alarmed and says that he doesn't. Aryan suggests that well, if he doesn't, then he better find out, as he himself has done: Jassi owns a company by the name of Kohinoor. Armaan looks as if he'll throw up, Raj, as if he wants to run away. Mallika says that she thought that the company belonged to Jassi's boyfriend Nandan Verma. Aryans says that no, Kohinoor has a sole owner and that is Ms.Jasmeet Walia.
Raj covers his face with his hands. Armaan looks bad.
Puru says that so what? What's the big deal?
Armaan grabs the opportunity and accuses Aryan of always hating Jassi and finding ways & means of trying to drive her out of GM. Mallika starts getting angry with this. Armaan asks Aryan what his actual problem is, Jassi or Gulmohur. Puru asks them what all this means. Aryan comments that he really finds this strange & asks his sister if she does too. Mallika says that yes, first Jassi suddenly got a rich boyfriend, then a costly car, she started visiting posh restaurants and now even talks of her boyfriend's company: she finds this very strange too. Aryan looks glad to get this support, and Armaan and Raj glance at each other nervously. Aryan accuses Armaan of handing over the entire management of the company to his secretary. Armaan shouts back that he stop acting like a detective and that he has only put Jassi in charge of the finance...and not the.... entire company...he looks away. Aryan snaps back that the one who controls the finances also controls the company. Their voices continue to rise and Puru chides them to stop this. She says that the simple solution to all this is to go call Jassi. Raj jumps to go but Mallika stops him. She tells him that he need not go, she will go and call Jassi. Raj tries to argue bit eventually gives in to Mallika, lifting both his hands up. Mallika gets up to go and she and Armaan exchange a long, cold stare.
Jassi is talking on the phone to Nandu when Mallika comes and asks her sarcastically if she can take the trouble to come to the boardroom.
Armaan and Raj are walking back and forth helplessly.
Mallika comes back and Jassi follows. Puru says that there are certain questions and they all want the answers from her. Jassi looks around uncomfortably and Armaan clutches a chair. Aryan tells Jassi that they have found out everything..Armaan clutches the chair tighter Aryan says that they know all about....about Kohinoor.
Jassi is shocked and looks at Armaan. Armaan looks back at her...his eyes say everything to her....they look helpless and watery.
