Recap: Ardhika reaches Rads village and Meets their family. Dilip ignores Arjun but others likes him and his behavior. Dadaji thinks to convince Dilip where in Ardhika thinks to execute their plan.
Ardhika and others spend a good quality time but to disturb their happiness, but it is not lasting for long, they all goes out hearing a noise and it is none other than Riddhima’s husband Saral. All the family members goes out and looks at him angrily.
Even Riddhima did not allow her daughter also to go to him. Saral smirks seeing her and next his vision stops at Radhika who stands beside Arjun. Ankush angrily walks to him and shouts, “Who asked you to come here? Get the hell out of here right now”
Saral rubs his chest, “Cool down my dear brother in law. Why are you shouting? Unnecessarily your BP will be increased. I came here to meet the new Slave..Oops sorry new damaad…your beautiful daughter Radhika’s husband” he looks at Radhika lustly which is not like by anyone there including Arjun. Arjun finds his stare on radhika comes forward hiding her and gives his hand to him saying, “I am Arjun, Radhika’s husband”
Saral glares him and moves his head behind him to his left to look Radhika, but Arjun also moves on the same side and blocks his vision. Saral smirks seeing him gives his hand saying, “Saral, this house’s damaad..Riddhima’s husband”
He takes his hand from Arjun and tries to walk further, but Arjun again blocks his way but Saral stops him by keeping his hand on Arjun’s chest saying, “I am gonna meet MY WIFE. Do you have any problem?”
Arjun couldn’t do or say anything after that and Saral steps ahead but stops by Ankush saying, “She is not your wife and just leave from here”
Saral pushes him back but Ankush holds his collar and both indulges in a fight beating each other. Arjun tries to calm down them and seperates them but nothing is working.
Dilip shouts, “Ankush”
Both stops fighting and looks at Dilip who looks furiously at Saral and tells, “Is this a home or what? Ankush, don’t make your hand dirty by touching him. Come here”
Saral becomes silent seeing Dilip and glares Ridhima then to Radhika and leaves from there. Ridhima cries and runs to her room, Radhika also goes behind her to console her.
Arjun goes to Ankush and calms him down, Dilip and other went inside. Arjun, “What is the problem?”
Ankush hesitates and Arjun continues, “It’s ok, if you don’t feel to say, then leave it”
Ankush, “No No…nothing like that. The problem is Radhika”
Ankush, “Saral and Ridhi married two years ago, that time Radhika was in city for her education and work. She did not come to their engagement also. But on the day of their marriage, Saral first time saw her and started liking her it seems. He felt dejected leaving Radhika and marrying Riddhi, but he acted to be good to all of us and we too believed him. But soon he shown his true colors and started torturing Ridhi to make him get Radhika. Ridhi was shocked and did not accept for his wish and in the verge of angry, he tried to kill her and her unborn child, Aradhana was in Ridhi’s womb. Ridhi got scared and ran from their house and told us all his tortures. We made a police complaint, but he came out easily using his influence and again started roaming behind Ridhi but the good thing is Radhika did not come here after that and she married you. Now he got to know this and came here again to torture Ridhi and us. But now i am all happy that you are with Choti, nothing bad will happen till you are with her” he hugs Arjun happily, but Arjun did not reciprocate the hug and ankush’s lasts words echoes in his mind.
Radhika calls Arjun, “Arjun, you haven’t been in this kind of atmosphere na. Come lets go out. I will show you my school and other places”
Arjun excites, “Wow, super yar. Chalo will go”
Meanwhile, they look at Ridhi sitting sadly having two years Aradhana in her hand. Arjun goes to her taking the baby in his hands asking her to come with us for a change. Ridhi hesitates but Arjun says, “Till i am here with you both, no one will harm you. Come with me…it will be good for you na..instead of being in home always”
Ridhi finally agrees and Arjun takes the baby with him and the sisters joins their hands and walks out happily. Mala, Ankush and Dadaji witness this and smiles seeing them, Ankush says, “Dadaji, i am so proud of Choti, she just select a perfect husband for her and the best damaad for us”
Dadaji with proud, “Haan Haan, she is my kid na. That’s she is intelligent in finding the person’s character”
Mala looks at him and laughs. All this are heard by Dilip who is in stairs watching them going out.
Radhika shows Arjun their lands, her school and on the way she meets her old school friends and she introduced them to Arjun. They all started drooling on him which isn’t liked by Radhika.
A girl in the group, “Hey Radhika, your husband is so handsome. Where you got him?”
Arjun jerks and Ridhi bursts out in laughter and Radhika in shock with wide open eyes, “WHAT?”
Arjun feels embarrasing seeing all the girls drooling on him, he turns to other side showing them his back. Radhika scolds them saying, “Hey, don’t eye on my husband. I will take ur eyes out” she holds Arjun’s hand and drags him from there.
Ridhi watching all this with a smile and murmurs in her ears while walking, “I did not expect that you will get jealous and angry seeing them eyeing ur husband”
Radhika unwittingly says, “Then what di? How can they eye on my husband?” she gives a force on the word husband.
Ridhi stares her sister still having grudge thinking about the incident and smiles seeing her possessiveness on her husband.
Soon they are going the way where Saral and his friends are sitting and chatting. Saral looks at them and smirks watching them going silently.
Arjun also noticed it but composes them and guards them. But Saral and his friends did not leave them so easily and started teasing them.
Arjun initially kept quiet but when they badmouth about Radhika, he did not keep quiet and started beating them all black and blue.
Radhika and Ridhi gets scared seeing so many of them surrounding Arjun, but Arjun is not less than them, he beats them badly, and soon Ankush came in his car after getting call from Radhika, he too beats them and makes them run from there.
Finally all gets upset and goes back to home in the car itself.
In home, Mala and Dadaji gets worry seeing Arjun’s wounds. Dilip murmurs, “Already we have one rowdy in our family in the name of damaad and now one more got added into list. What’s the need to fight with him, to spoil my name in the village is it?” he sounds little high to make him hear Arjun about his annoyance.
Arjun silently leaves from there to his room and Radhika gets upset seeing him like this. She goes to Dilip accusing, “Papa, Arjun is not at fault. Will you keep quiet if any one badmouths about your daughters? They said bad about me and di, tht’s y he fought with them. Pls don’t hurt him by your words. He has no intention to spoil your name instead he saved your respect infront of many people. Now they will say to you that your new damaad is such a kind hearted and gentle man who respects the ladies unlike the other. He just saved his wife’s respect Papa and there is nothing wrong in that”
She finishes it without any break and leaves from there to look for Arjun. All are shocked and numb hearing her arguement with Dilip supporting Arjun. Dadaji smiles widely and proudly says, “This is called Love. Dilip, atleast by now understand your daughter’s love on her husband”
All goes from there leaving Dilip alone. Radhika goes to her room and finds Arjun winces in pain silently and tries to apply the medicine. She takes it in her hand and makes him sit and Arjun tries to protest, “It’s ok Radhi..leave it. I will manage it”
Radhika glares him, “Sssshhhhhh. No more words. Just sit silent”
Arjun obeys her and she does the first aid for him and puts the bandage on his head where the wound is little deep.
She worries seeing him says, “I am sorry Arjun. I think i am hurting you more just for my sake. I am taking advantage of you right”
Arjun smiles at her cups her face saying, “My dear friend, nothing like that. It’s my duty to protect you not as a husband but atleast as a friend, i should object them right.”
SHe too smiles and nods her head and he is about to get down but she stops him saying, “You rest in the bed. I will get milk for you”
SHe makes him sleep comfortable and goes to kitchen. When she comes back, she only finds him sleeping peacefully. She goes out of thinking not to disturb him.
Next day, Mala calls Radhika alone and hesitates to ask something. Rads finds wierd and looks for Ridhi..even she too hesitates.
Finally mala only asks her, “Radhi, i know you married for two years now…i want to ask you is…is..”
Rads gets irriated, “Maa, just ask what you want to know. Why are you covering?”
Mala, “Actually, i want to know..whether you both get into…get into…physical relation” she abruptly stops and looks for Rads answer.
Rads is numb and did not expect this at all and thinks what to answer.
Ridhi shakes her asking, “Hey, what are you thinking? Say yes or no?”
Rads blinks and says, “No”
Rads, “Woh..Maa..actually. We both are..are not..settled well…so…we..both..discussed and postponed everything later once we gets good lifestyle” she somehow manages to lie.
Mala hugs her happily says, “Good that you postponed Radhika. You know na, it is our family ritual that we have to pray in our temple first after marriage and then only we have to make the couple get into the relation. I was worried for you and now i am happy. So we are going to temple tomorrow only and finish the ritual. Then we will arrange the First night for you both in our home”
Rads choked saying, “FIRST NIGHT? Maa?” she atmost screamed.
Mala and Ridhi gets shocked, “What happened? Why u screaming?”
Rads composes, “Maa, Arjun don’t believe all this and moreover it’s we decided not to have physical relation. If you say this suddenly then he will get angry”
Mala pulls her cheeks saying,”I got to know my damaad very well in these days. You no need to tell me anything and you are not saying anything to him also. We will give a surprise to him”
Mala and Ridhi chuckles and leaves from there leaving Radhika tensed. She comes home and looks for Arjun.
Arjun comes behind her saying, “Are you searching for me?”
Rads jerks and drags him at the backyard and saying, “Arjun, we are into a big problem”
Arjun, “More than this?” he points both of them
Rads makes face saying, “Yes. Maa and di arranges for the pooja in our temple and it is a ritual”
Arjun, “So what?”
Rads, “After that…” she stops of unable to tell him what they planned.
Arjun, “After that what?”
Rads, “Maa told…they will arrange…First Night…”
Arjun screams, “WHAT?”
Rads, “Don’t shout. I actually told them that we both are seperated till we get settled in our life and now they want to keep that here. I even told that you are not believing all this”
Arjun, “Then what?”
Rads, “They are not listening. Arjun..we have to do something. It is going serious day by day”
Arjun, “What you want me to do?”
Rads, “Arjun, till now all likes you in my home except Papa. So we have to create a situation where all should hate you, so that we can gain their hatredness on you easily and you too can go from here leaving me. I will stay here with my parents”
Arjun somehow gets upset listening it and says, “Are you sure, you want to stay alone for life long?”
Rads looks at him saying, “That’s what we planned right. Arjun, i can’t say them about Neil. They will force me for sure and make me marry to some one else. Love after marriage is like duty in other way it is forced also. I don’t want to have that life. I want to live alone having his memories with me”
Arjun sighs out, “Ok, then let’s start our drama from tomorrow in the temple”
Arjun, “I don’t know. We will start according to the situation occurs there”
Rads looks worried still and he says, “Atleast you can laugh now. I am with you na”
Rads smiles and he says, “You look good now. Keep smiling” and he goes inside leaving her in some thought.
Next day, all gets ready and reaches their temple. The pooja starts and all the normal rituals everything is going on. Radhika happily enjoys with her family. Arjun stands at one corner and stares Radhika who is smiling with the baby Aradhana. Dadaji stands beside him, “Ahem..ahem…admiring your wife’s activities huh?”
Arjun gets embarrased saying, “No dadaji, i was just looking at the happy family. I never get chance to be in this kind of family atmosphere. This is the first time i am with these many people. I got little emotional”
Dadaji too gets emotional and says, “Why are you saying like this? Now we all are one family. If anyone asks you then you can proudly says that you are Misra family’s damaad. Come we go and join with them”
The final pooja also got over and Mala gives him the sindoor box to Arjun saying, “Arjun beta, fill Radhika’s maang with this sindoor”
Ardhika gets shocked and both looks each other shockingly.
Precap: Arjun burns the Saree which Dilip got for Radhika and Dilip fumes in anger and shouts at him.
