S: then what is the matter. You know na.
Sonal: it’s not that shaurya. How can I make you understand?
M: sometimes it’s important to say it. Just feeling is not enough.
Shaurya looks at Mehak. Mehak looks into Shaurya’s eyes.
M: sometimes in a relationship it is necessary to say each other that we love each other or how we feel about each other, how important the other person is in our life.
Mehak and Shaurya share an eyelock.
Mehak and Shaurya came back to the real world.
S: so …. What were we saying….
Sonal: we have to make him say those words.
S: it’s simple na. Just go and ask him. Right? Say you love him. He will surely respond to it na?
Sonal: no-no… I can’t say. And after all girls don’t propose. It’s a boys thing right.
M: who says so?
M: girls don’t propose? There are no rules saying so.
Sonal: oho.. There may not be rule. But, normal girls don’t do.
M: what normal Sonal?
S: hey you two please… What’s all this. And Sonal, Mehak is right. If girls want, they can propose. And also, if Sonal want him to propose it’s also ok na.
M: yaa. Ok.
S: so what’s the plan? How can we make him say it?
M: Bollywood style na?
M: make him jealous and possessive. Force him to accept his love.
S: typical serial right.
M: it works na?
S: but it’s a bit dramatic right.
M: love is always dramatic.
Sonal: guys… I like the idea… Let’s get it done yar.
S: so.. who is going to be your fake boyfriend?
Mehak and Sonal looks at Shaurya.
Sonal: yeh bhi koi puchneka bath hai ka?
S: what? Me!!
M: yaa. Who else. So that’s fixed. Let’s do it…
Sonal and Mehak hugged each other.
