Welcome to the PaNi week friends !!!!
Recap: Parth landed up at Niti’s place. Both of them start defending their friends in the discussion and end up in a nasty fight !
The next day when Niti comes to the set, Veebha unaware of what had happened the other night, reaches up to Niti with another fake incident about Ayaz to make her talk to Parth about it. As soon as she reaches up to Niti and is about to talk to her, she notices her dull face, swollen eyes and a lost in another world Niti. She suddenly becomes really concerned and asks her softly,
Veebha: (placing her hand softly on her shoulder) Niti, what happened darling ?
Niti: (coming out of her lost world slowly) Nothing. Come let’s get ready.
Just as Niti starts moving towards the vanity, Veebha stops her and drags her aside.
Veebha: Niti, look I can clearly see something big has happened. Please tell me. You’re making me worry !
Niti: (faking a smile) It’s nothing Veebha. I don’t know why are you worried.
Veebha: Niti, when you’re giving that fake smile, the swollen eyes get more highlighted. So now please don’t fake it in front of me. Just speak up !
Niti: I’m sorry Veebha. I could not help you. I tried talking to Parth about Ayaz but instead we ended up in a fight. He was not ready to accept that his friend is at fault. Instead, he was saying that it’s you who is after Ayaz.
Veebha: So, you’ve already talked to him ? I’m so sorry Niti, because of me you lost your friend.
Niti: Oh no not at all ! In fact I’m happy that he is no more a part of my life ! Because whatever he said yesterday, can’t be coming out of a good friend’s mouth. You know what Veebha ? I had started believing in him. I’m glad my illusion got broken before it was too late. All thanks to you ! But just one bad thing that I could not help you.
Veebha: It’s okay Niti. At least you tried. But seriously why are you fighting him for me ? I don’t want you to lose your friendship.
Niti: Oh no Veebha, in fact it’s good. So, don’t be disheartened. Come now let’s go get ready.
Parth goes to the boys vanity and on finding that there was no one apart from him and Ayaz, he speaks up,
Parth: Umm Ayaz, sorry bro ! I could not help you !
Ayaz: (confused) Help about what ?
Parth: About the Veebha thing. Actually last night I tried talking to her friend, Niti but it didn’t really work out.
Ayaz: why ?
Parth: She wasn’t ready to accept that her friend is a psycho ! Instead she was telling me that Ayaz is a psycho and he is after Veebha.
Ayaz: (laughing out loud in his mind) Let it be man ! You tried right ? Now just let go of it. Don’t spoil your mood and friendship with Niti.
Parth: What friendship ? If there was really friendship, she should have trusted what I was saying !
Ayaz: So, then even you should have trusted what she was saying ! It might be that she was correct ! You know like, me after that Madhubala ! Possible right ?
Parth: (irritated of his silly jokes) Stop it Ayaz !
Ayaz: Ha ha ha ! okay now let’s get ready ! We don’t get paid here for solving our problems and making and breaking friendships right ?
On reaching the shoot area, both Parth and Niti keep avoiding each other but it also pains them to be doing that. Their friendship had been beautiful while it lasted but this separation phase was not really tolerable. Veebha and Ayaz notice the differences and the sad faces of their friends and feel bad about what they had done ! They wanted to strengthen their friendship but it turned out bitter !
After pack up, Veebha and Ayaz meet up at a nearby cafe to talk about the mess they had created. Ayaz had been waiting for Veebha as he had left before her from the set. Veebha had left later in a cab and arrived 10 minutes late.
Veebha: (reaching to the table where Ayaz had been sitting) Hey ! I’m sorry I’m late !
Ayaz: (looking up at her) No, it’s okay..Come have a seat. Would you like to have something ?
Veebha: Umm…Coffee ?
Ayaz orders two cups of coffee and they start with their discussion. Over the cup of coffee extended through 1 hour of discussion both of them come to a conclusion that they would try and stop the drama they had started at their end and then try and resolve the differences between Parth and Niti.
The next morning first thing Veebha takes Niti for a talk and similarly Ayaz takes Parth aside for a talk !
Veebha: (to Niti) Niti, you won’t believe what happened yesterday !
Niti: (to Veebha) What ?
Ayaz: (To Parth) I don’t know how to say this, but I’m finally free ! Veebha apologized to me yesterday.
Parth: What ? Are you serious ?
Veebha: (to Niti) Yes he did ! He called me up last night and apologized for each and every thing stupid he had done till date !
Parth: (to Ayaz) I don’t believe this ! But how come suddenly she realized ?
Ayaz: I don’t know how ? But she did. And she has promised she won’t ever bother me again !
Niti: (to Veebha) That is great ! But I still can’t believe that happened !
Veebha: Oh but it did ! Now it’s all sorted ! So, I guess even you should resolve your differences with Parth.
Ayaz: (to Parth) Don’t you think you should resolve your differences with Niti ?
Niti: (to Veebha) No !
Parth: (to Ayaz) Never !
Veebha: But why Niti ? Now everything is sorted ! What’s the point in fighting now ?
Niti: I’m not fighting because I’m enjoying. I’m hurt ! The way he said things ! And now today, it’s Ayaz who apologized to you right ? So, I was correct ! But he just wouldn’t listen to me ! And the way he said few things ! I can never let go of those things out of my head !
Ayaz: (to Parth) C’mon man ! Just let it go now ! Why are you stretching this so much ?
Parth: I’m not stretching things ! What I’m doing is reasonable ! See now it’s Veebha who apologized to you right ? So, she should have also understood that I was correct and her friend was at fault ! But you won’t believe what attitude she had been showing ! I just couldn’t bear that !
So, Parth and Niti won’t patch up ! This made Veebha and Ayaz stress more and for the next few days they kept trying to sort things out but nothing worked. But one fine day both of them noticed something which got their original plan back ! They wanted both of them to fight and not talk to each other so that they miss each other. But things had turned bitter when they went rude with each other which seemed to be difficult to erase out of their memories. In that disturbed phase of their friends, they had completely forgotten their original plan to somehow make them miss each others company !
Now that things had started turning weird, one small conversation got back Veeyaz’s original plan back ! They had all been sitting together for lunch one day and Parth and Niti had to finish their lunch fast and resume shoot. After the two of them left, and all the others were still sitting together, Abhishek spoke up,
Abhishek: Why are these two behaving so weird since the past few days ? I mean yeah I know they are just professional and all but these days, they don’t even speak much with the others as well and Parth, whenever he is in the vanity with us, I’ve seen him go mad at small things and get irritated very soon !
Charlie: Yeah you are right ! Now that you pointed it out, I realize even Niti does not mix up with us anymore ! Earlier she used to be so happy and excited all the time but now it seems like she is here just for work and nothing else !
At this conversation, both Ayaz and Veebha together realize that their plan was on ! What they wanted was actually happening in front of their eyes but they could not realize it soon. Now they just had to push it forward a bit to get it going. Ayaz instantly texts Veebha,
Ayaz: Do you get it ?
Veebha: Oh yes! Our plan is on ! I’ll go talk to Niti.
Ayaz: And I’ll go and talk to Parth.
Both of them go to their friends and wait for their shot to get over. Once they get a small break in between, Veebha goes forward to talk to Niti,
Veebha: (cheerfully) Hey Niti !
Niti: (softly) Hi !
Veebha: Niti what’s wrong with you ?
Niti: What ?
Veebha: Since the past few days you are behaving so damn weird ! Earlier you used to be the bubbly and cheerful Niti. And now it seems like I’ve lost my friend somewhere.
Niti: It’s nothing like that veebha. I’m just tired !
Veebha: Don’t lie to me. It’s just after lunch and you’re tired already ? You know what ? It seems like the broken friendship with Parth is really affecting you !
Ayaz had been going on with a similar discussion with Parth,
Parth: What ? Why would that broken friendship affect me ?
Ayaz: I don’t know but I can see it happening.
Niti: (to Veebha) Please Veebha. It’s nothing like that.
Veebha: No Niti, seriously, look I wasn’t aware about yours and Parth’s friendship for a long time but even back then I used to think that you used to remain so happy and full of energy all the time. And now, you’re just an actor working here ! You come here just to get ready, give your shot and then leave. You have no life left after Parth ! He really seems to be affecting you a lot !
Niti keeps staring at Veebha and tries to digest in whatever she had been saying. Somewhere she found Veebha to be correct but she herself did not want to believe her to be correct.
Parth: (to Ayaz) What nonsense man ! You know me right ? I’m a very focused person when it comes to work. And that’s the reason I focus on my work. So, there’s nothing like she has been affecting me or anything like that ! Okay now I have to go. Shot is ready. See you later. Bye.
Back for the shoot after the conversation with their friends, both Parth and Niti again come face to face and keep thinking about what their friends had said to them a while ago. They keep staring into each others’ eyes and try to figure out whether the separation had actually been affecting them. Veebha and Ayaz notice the eye lock from a distance and get excited as their plan was nearing it’s climax !
Precap: Would Parth and Niti realize what Ayaz and Veebha are trying to explain to them ? Woul they resolve their differences and approve of their friendship once again ? How would the shower sequence turn up off screen being their first “too intimate” sequence ?
So, friends our valentine’s week is on ! The valentine’s episode is going to be special for both the ffs but for our PaNi ff which has been going through a sad phase for a long time, the PaNi week is also going to be exciting….And just hold on your breath because the excitement has just begun !
