Because loving someone is always difficult !!
Virat ?!! Did he actually say that ?!! Is this even real ?!! Someone is playing around with us.
He doesn’t look burnt. And he seriously doesn’t look like a girl !! He is definitely not Anushka. What on earth is happening here ?!!
We look at each other, and look at him, clueless at what just happened.
“You’re Virat ?!! Isn’t this Anu…..I mean—this is your house ?!!” Naira asks him.
“Yes.” he says, a little taken aback.
“This is my house. Who are you guys ?!!” Virat further asks.
“But how can you be Virat ?!!” Naksh says.
“Excuse me ?!!” Virat asks.
“Virat Kohli ?!! Who studied at Imperial Academy, Dehradun ?!!” Naksh tries to confirm.
“Yes, I am. What do you mean ?!! I am really not getting you guys.” Virat says exhausted.
“But you’re Dead !! You are supposed to be dead , right ?!!”I say.
“What are you talking about ?!!” Virat says.
He is freaking out and so are we. He should be burnt and dead, and definitely not be in Anushka’s house.
“Yes, you are dead !!” Keerti shrieks.
“And this is not your house !! This is Anushka’s house !! What are you doing here ?!! Why aren’t you dead ?!!” Naksh asks.
“What ?!! Anushka ?!! How do you know her ?!!” Virat asks.
“We just know and this is her house, not yours !!’ Keerti shouts again.
“I am really not getting you. How do you know her ?!!” Virat asks again.
We can see that he is now a little angry and very confused. We are no better.
Naira says, “We have your diary. You were in that blast in Delhi sometime ago, and you are dead !!”
She takes out the diary from my backpack and hands it to him. His eyes look like they would pop out of his head. He is stunned.
“Here it is. It’s all burnt. How can you be alive ?!! We found it at the blast site. You should be dead. But you’re not !! How ?!!” I exclaim.
“Yes. I should be … I … I … should be dead.” Virat takes the diary and says.
Suddenly he is lost. His eyes go blank and vacant. He looks at the diary like he has never seen it.
The same ritual unfolds for the umpteenth time in front of our eyes. A few tears, the running of hands over the burnt pages, the pause, the flipping through the pages. He looks at it, teary-eyed for quite some time and looks at us, his eyes flooded with questions he needs answers to.
We look at him with the same expression. We have no answers for him.
“Where did you get it ?!!” he asks. His feet are staggering.
“Near the Taj blast site. I was there when the blast happened. The diary was all burnt. Are you sure it’s yours ?!!” I ask.
“Wait.” he says and opens the drawer next to the sofa.
“Look, I have copies of it. This is mine. But
how is it with you ?!! I sent it to Anushka a few weeks back … and …” His voice trails off.
He asked a terrible question and he answered the question himself. Keerti staggers and leans on the sofa. Naira clutches my hand. Naksh and I look at each other in sheer horror.
Our hearts beat out of our mouths. This can’t be. It was Anushka.
We look at him. The copies of his diary drop to the ground and his tears begin to flow in abundance. He stumbles and leans on the sofa. He sits there, puts the diary on the table in front of him and looks at it. He looks lost.
It looks like he would faint. My head’s in a mess. I have no idea what he must be going through.
Virat looks at us, his eyes filled with tears, and he asks, “Are you sure ?!!”
“I don’t know. I thought it was you.” I answer.
“Oh God.” he says, now looking very close to fainting.
“But let’s not assume that she is … she is Gone. I mean, when I got this diary, we assumed that you were dead. We assumed that the owner of the diary did not survive. When we did not even know if the diary was with its owner at that time. Maybe … maybe it was with someone else ?!! Maybe
it wasn’t … her ?!!” I suggest.
“But I sent it to her. Why would she give it to someone else ?!!” Virat asks, trying to make sense of the whole situation.
“Did you courier it ?!!” Naksh asks.
“Yes.” He answers.
“Then maybe it did not reach her ?!! Maybe it was with the courier guy ?!!” Naksh adds.
“Was it in an envelope when you found it ?!!” Virat turns to me and asks.
I shake my head. We don’t say anything else. We are all expecting the worst. He frantically gets his laptop and searches for helpline numbers for the victims.
He finds them and starts calling those hospitals like I had. I tell him that I have done that and the hospitals can’t tell him anything. He doesn’t listen to me and still calls all the numbers. We still don’t know what’s going on.
Or we do, but we don’t want to accept it. Keerti looks at me. She has tears in her eyes too. She passes on the envelope that Ranbir had given us. She asks me to check the writing on it. And it strikes me. It’s not Anushka’s handwriting. It’s the handwriting from the diary.
That’s why it has Virat’s address. The card with Ranbir wasn’t from Anushka, it was from Virat.
Meanwhile, he keeps calling these hospitals up and asking whether there is a patient by the name of Anushka in their list, dead or survived. There is no trace of her. He has written down the list of the
people who had been killed and Anushka is not one of them.
I tell him again that it will not help. But I
don’t argue. He looks frantic and is all over the place. Soon he starts to look like a maniac.
An hour passes by and he is still trying to trace Anushka through news articles, hospitals and YouTube clips of the news channels reporting the blast. We just sit there and watch him cry and frantically do everything to get to Anushka.
Though slowly, he starts to accept defeat and his face droops, his movements become more restricted and the flow of tears increases. Nothing comes through.
He holds his head and sits in the corner. He looks devastated. It’s not easy to know that one’s love is dead in such an unfortunate incident.
It’s probably a feeling that we can’t understand unless it happens to us.
Precap : When the world comes to a standstill !!
Another shocking surprise !!
Just now I saw some behind the scenes photos of Anushka and SRK being a part of Keesh’s wedding. I can’t believe that Anushka will be a part of Yrkkh. My favourite actress will be in my favourite show.
Its like a wish coming true. Can’t wait for the episode to be aired. Also I have read some spoilers that Anushka and SRK will help find Keesh’s engagement ring, which will be lost during the ceremony. The track is similar to their movie Jab Harry Met Sejal !!
Also the fact that filmstars being a part of Yrkkh for the promotions of their movies, just shows the popularity of Yrkkh. I hope the show keeps on wining the heart of their audiences.
Do comment. Keep smiling. Keep watching Yrkkh !!
