Sorry Nirvan, called you Kalapi. Not sure if it is not manipulative, you want some thing so badly you start telling people that in the hopes perhaps that being your friend the guy has no way out except to say yes, he does say no the first time. But her plan does work when he says yes the second time. I remember the conversation with Manav and DK after the first incident. Psychological manipulation is how I see it - he knows his best friend wants it, as do his dad and his hero, Manav uncle, he says no the first time around but the thought has already taken seed and the second time she tries to make him jealous and it misfires, he agrees. Delusional at least, manipulative at worst is how I see it.
Have you all noticed there is not one happy marriage in PR - Archana & Manav, Ajit and Vandu, Varsha and Satish, Vaishali & Dharmesh, Damo & Savita, even DK and Ashna had their set of problems and then she died. Only couple that fights always but at least has a modicum of normalcy is Manju and Vinod. What is with Ekta?
Everybody on the show has been manipulative, what Ovi did was nothing. Atleast Arjun had nothing to lose because he wasn't in love with anybody at that time, and if was to marry somebody, he would probably be happier with his best friend who loved him and was happy with his workaholic ways. Archana manipulated madhuri, dharmesh's first wife into telling the court that her marriage with dharmesh wasn't legal so that her sister vaishali could get a "legal divorce" whatever that meant. And madhuri, who nobody saw after that and her son varun both suffered for that, especially the latter who was a cancer patient and was ill-treated by Vaishali. Purvi manipulated the judge asking her to get archana and manav to stay together for 6 months. Sulochana, savita, sachin, pretty much everybody has manipulated in the show. Ovi's manipulation, if you can call it that, was probably the most harmless regardless of its consequences now!
Regarding your question about Vaishali, once she came to know about dharmesh's bigamy, she kept the secret and lived with archana and manav in their kholi. Manav the great was taunted about having a threesome while "mahaan" archana and "poor" vaishali cried silently and watched his humiliation. Savita who was passing by stepped in and defended her son. Then, as soon as everybody did come to know about her husband's bigamy, his family and her's; she insisted on getting a "legal" divorce from dharmesh when she wasn't even legally married. Archana, whose righteous spirit had been assuaged by then, wanted vaishali to go back and live with the bigamist dharmesh. Why they did the whole drama of knowing his secret, hiding it, revealing it and then doing nothing about it but going back to him beats me. Could have avoided manav a lot of humiliation and us viewers a lot of torture. Anyways, archana the "awesome" sister had to give vaishali her wish. So she made nice with madhuri who until then was scorned, and asked her nicely to announce in court that her marriage wasn't legal and her recovering son was illegitimate. I don't remember if vaishali got her divorce or not, but she did go back to dharmesh soon after that.
EDIT: I see Varsha and nirvan have already explained the backstory!
