Jyoti apologises to Renuka .
At Kirloskar house Avdyoot shares his grief with his sis Pratibha about his missing daughter and Kalindi's depression
He is helpless about both situations Pratibha assures her brother Avdyoot all would be OK soon , Avdyoot tells her how much he had searched for her all over the town , He refuses to believe shlok's words that he had found Aastha but Shlok could not make Aastha appear before them. He was so disappointed
Pratibha assures her bro , everything will be OK soon.
Somewhere in the jungles , tired, hungry and thirsty the trio choksi, rekha, sojal sit down for some snax of vada pao ,Khakra etc
They assure one another that shlok would surely locate Aastha and rescue her .
At kirloskar house avdyoot assures a depressed aastha while pratibha leaves for her sasuraal , avdyoot misses his daughter and gets emotional.
In the jungle tired and thirsty aastha locates a water tap in the jungle ,Aastha splashes water on her face. Shlok stares at her snow white face splattered with droplets of water
The BG song plays .."Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon ..."
long moments pass as shlok stares at aastha splashing water on her face but next moment the tap bursts and aastha is splashed with uncontrolled fountain of water She is all wet. Her saree sticks to her form making her look very sexy
He stares at her
Aastha wants to change , shlok refuses to give her anything
Asks her to follow him , aastha has no option but to follow his orders reluctantly
Ashlok reach an abandoned house in the jungles , Shlok notices Aastha shivering with cold and in wet clothes , Shlok gets her an old blanket. But aastha makes face and sniggers at the dirty thing , She asks him if he was sharing this room , Shlok jokes about his luxury suite next door hotel .
Aastha refuses to share the room and is about to walk out harping about shlok not being chivalrous enough to give up the room for a lady
But next moments some roars of wild animals are heard. Aastha gets scared and says on second thoughts she did not mind sharing the room ,shlok smiles
Shlok then breaks an old furniture (?chair) and lights up a bonfire
Ashlok sit next to it , Shlok asks her to leave her attitude and sit closer to the fire
At sarkar's house apsara hands over a pen drive to Indra saying some unknown person had asked her to give to him saying it was important
Indra plays the pendrive to hear shlok's voice informing him about his barkha who was not with him any more Aastha been taken away by shlok , her husband. she was no more Indra's barkha but was shlok's aastha now Indra is in fit of fury
Apsara watches indra's reaction secretly and mutters that aastha had escaped from indra's "soney ka pinjra "
At the jungle house ashlok sit near the fire , shlok stares at aastha as they warm themselves. He moves too close to the fire absentmindedly, aastha is shocked and pulls back shlok's hand , She asks if he was lost in thoughts of his wife aastha ??, He says his existence was because of aastha, with out her he had no existence , But she should not be bothered .
Aastha thinks that shlok was right She should not be bothered about his wife whom she had never met. But she was unable to understand why shlok's pain was affecting her so much ??
Indra gets some information and he rushes out
Indra confronts Ashlok
Aastha is shocked to see indra in furious mood
Shlok returns Indra's glare challengingly ...
