she can’t understand what she is asking and she leaves. Suddenly the house bell
rings and Sunaina thinks who would have come at this time? She asks if it could
be her family members? Sunaina leaves to see who it is. Sona says to herself
that her mother in-law is so worried about her family and thinks that she
forgot to tell that Daadi had advised her saying her husband is her pride.

police station at his Marriage night. He reaches the police station leaving all
the constables wondering. Kanhaiya asks who is the criminal who ruined his
Kanhaiya in police station asks his juniors who
is it that is spoiling his suhaagraat (wedding night). Just then a constable
drags a topless guy out and brings him in front of Kanhaiya who touches him
with his stick and the guy starts feeling tickling and laughs. Kanhaiya asks
what he did. One of the constables says they have got the wrong guy by mistake
as they went to catch a gang leader and instead caught this maalishwala.
Kanhaiya starts to smile and the massagewala also smiles. Seeing this, Kanhaiya
slaps and thrashes the goon at his police station. The fellow asks why he was
slapped when a constable says because he spoiled Kanhaiya sir’s suhaagraat (wedding
night). Kanhaiya warns them not to call and disturb him and leaves.
At home a lot of trunks come for Sona and all are
excited especially Sunaina Devi while the other daughter in-laws start
comparing as to how much they had brought during their wedding. Sunaina asks if
all the things have come while the guy who brought the trunks say that it’s all
for Sona. The daughter in-laws talk among themselves that nothing has come for
them or for their mother in-law. Suhnaina gives the trunk keys to Neelam and
asks her to have the trunks kept in Sona’s room.
Suhnaina is in deep thoughts and get disturbed on
gaining; nothing from Sona’s family when her Devar comes and asks what’s wrong.
Sunaina says Sona’s parents haven’t given anything to them and asks what they
will tell the neighbours. She also wonders if they were fooled because Sona’s
Granny has sent things only for Sona. Dever says Sona is like a blank cheque
which she can cash every month as Sona earns 40,000 every month which will come
to her hand. Sunaina gets excited hearing this.
Kanhaiya returns home in a romantic mood when he
finds Chiku and his other 2 sister in-laws come and start to tease him about
suhaagraat. Kanhaiya is feeling shy when his sister in-laws ask how will he
lift Sona’s ghoonghat and continue to tease him. Kanhaiya finally reaches the
room and finds the empty bed. He wonders where Sona is when she comes out of
bathroom in a night gown and Kanhaiya is lost looking at her. Sona says the
wedding dress was too heavy so she changed. Kanhaiya replied that she made his
job easy as he was confused how to lift her ghoonghat. Sona says she removed
her makeup too when Kanhaiya says he likes simplicity a lot and she is looking
extremely beautiful. Kanhaiya and Sona recall their memories at their first
meet and how they were impressed with each other.
Kanhaiya comes behind her and gifts her small
necklace. Sona says she doesn’t like jewelleries much. Kanhaiya feels bad seeing
which Sona says it’s beautiful and asks him to make her wear it. Kanhaiya says
she is more beautiful and puts it around her neck while a background song ‘Tune
jo pal bhar mein chori kiya re jiya” is play. Sona blushes as Kanhaiya says she
is gorgeous. He hesitates to touch her while Sona smiles. Slowly they sit on
the bed and come close to each other and are lost in each other’s eyes.
Kanhaiya puts his handkerchief on Sona’s head as ghoonghat and then removes it.
She holds his hand and Kanhaiya blushes.
Just then Sona hears someone calling her when her
Granny’s image comes in front of her and further recalls the advice of her
grandmother cautioning her not to surrender herself to her husband before
understanding him knowing him properly and not to do the mistakes her mom did
and hereby tackles the situation regarding Kanhaiya, in her favour.
Kanhaiya comes and Sona says she has got a sudden
headache. Kanhaiya says he will drive away the headache then it will be their
suhaagraat. Sona lies on the bed while he presses her head and finally sleeps
