Mota Bha insists that she can, this is the result of her hard work. Gulaal says that nothing can be more honorable that she take the place of Mota Bha, everything she has done to date was for the good of the village, she has no desire to become the Head, someone else deserves to do this, she was just the guide, someone else walked that way and did the work, so that person deserves more than her to become Head.

Mota Bha supports Gulaal and says that she is right, Dushyant will continue to do good but by being the Head. Kesar looks at Gulaal and is fuming to see her support Dushyant, when Mota Bha announces that Dushyant will become Head, Kesar looks at him in shock, he turns to see Gulaal smiling and flashbacks to Durgesh's hinting at Gulaal's relationship with Dushyant her husband's killer.

He tells Durgesh that he has not changed his habit of putting others lives at risk for his own selfish motive, if Durgesh had any guts he would have come like a man instead of bringing cops. Durgesh says that he has not come to fight with anyone, he is upset with his behavior of insulting Mota Bha in the past, he has come here with Raman to repent for his actions.
