NK is wandering in his room thinking what to do
NK : Maa won’t agree.. Never.. Nani..? Will she accept my truth.. I can’t take chance.. Haan.. Di.. Only she can help him.. She’ll understand & convince everyone..
Arnav stealthily enter & rush to his room.. Hoping no one sees him.. After changing he go to Anjali’s room.. He knock & step in.. They look at him furiously
Arnav : huh.. It was important meeting in Mumbai..
Aman is assisting Arnav through Bluetooth..
Aman : man.. Not Mumbai.. They got to know you went no where
Arnav : uh.. It was in Mumbai.. But got cancelled..
Anj shyam look on..
Arnav : that priest in Lucknow.. I had invited him but..
Aman : did they ask about priest.. ASR you will get trapped for sure
Shyam : so the panditji lied..
Arnav : yes..
Aman : are you out of your mind.. You’re accusing him for a lie.. Cover up
Arnav : I mean.. No no. I had given invitation card to his disciple may be he didn’t give..
Shyam : which disciple ? The one who came her as a priest..
Arnav : yes..
Aman : No.. ASR say no..
Arnav : No.. Na I me.. ( pat..!!)
He jerked a bit & looked at his di.. Who just slapped him you can say a pat but with bit more force..
( Now don’t think she’s very angry so slapped him.. Its not like the slap they show in serials.. Like people are slapped only for serious situation & that slap will be very loud & paining. Nothing like that happens in real life.. Mom & sisters will be like all the time ready to slap or pat for silly things we do which doesn’t hurt at all.. & we don’t even mind it & are used to it)
NK who came to tell Anjali his secret jerk seeing it..
Nk : ( to himself) God.. Di is furious.. If great Arnav is not spared how will she spare me.. Its not good idea to tell her
(he hide behind pillar what’s happening)
Anjali was still looking angrily at him.. He knew she was not done yet..
Aman : why did you stop.. Tell her you didn’t mean it & have no idea why priest gave that date & you don’t even know that priest..
Arnav : di.. I don’t know that priest..& have no idea why priest gav.. ( pat..!!)
She slapped again..
Arnav zip his lips.. He got to know all this is not working & she knows he’s lying
Anjali rise her hand Arnav close his eyes.. She take his Bluetooth off & take his phone
Aman : arre why are you stopping in middle she will get doubt that..
Anjali : shut upaman.. Come to our room now..
Aman : di.. Woh.. Huh.. I’ve meeting now..
Anjali : I know you’re in chote’s room better you come fast..
Shyam : now will you tell truth chote.. Or you want your di to continue her session..
Arnav : I lied about priest & I didn’t invite him..
Shyam : so you don’t want this marriage
Arnav : I didn’t mean that..
Anjali : then what do you mean chote I’m getting nothing except your lies
Arnav : huh..
Anjali : don’t you dare lie again.. Warna khoob pitayi hogi
Aman too hide behind another pillar..
Arnav : di.. I needed time to know lavanya better.. I mean I knew she’s nice girl & you all like her but I wanted to ( he see at aman who gestures love.. & provokes to tell ) I wanted to love.. ( pat..!!)
He got another one..
Arnav : I’m not lying di…
Anjali : you wanted to fall in love.. & you want me to believe it.. Tum na aise nahi bologe.. ( you want tell like this..)
She search for something to hit him but he stop her..
Arnav : ok ok sorry di lmarriageI just wanted her to understand my schedule & nature & you know I can’t give much time to her.. If she adjust & know me better then there would be no problems in future so I postponed wedding for 6 months & if I tell you both directly.. Definitely you wouldn’t have believed me & you would’ve thought its my another reason to escape so..
Shyam : so you lied..
Anjali : I won’t believe you even now..
Arnav : why di.. If you want I’ll marry her along with Akash payal ok..
Aman : what are you telling yaar.. Only 15 days left for marriage.. He’ll trap us.. ( murmur)
Shyam : ok done.. That’s the deal..
Anjali is still looking at him suspiciously…
Arnav : di.. Now drop that look.. I mean it..
She again slap him..
Arnav : what now.. ( rubbing his cheek)
Anjali : for lying since so many days..
Arnav : di didn’t you promise me that you won’t beat me on last raksha bandhan
Anjali : you too promised you won’t lie on last raksha bandhan
Arnav : what if anyone see you doing that..
Shyam : already someone saw it..
NK run from there thinking its him.
Shyam : Aman.. You can come in…
He give one innocent smile to Anjali.. She twist his ear..
Anjali : what were you saying ah. ? Teaching him to lie ah..?
Aman : no di.. I.. ( she twist more)
Aman : ouch.. Yes.. Sorry..
Arnav : how can you say yes for a marriage
Kushi : aapko kya faraq padta hai..
