Once there was a king 31 January 2022: Avdesh says to Rana ji that they will play Choker, where fate determines what is right and what is wrong. Rana ji says he won’t play it. Kunwar ji says this game is played since the time of Mahabharat. At that time, timids used to back up only from it. Rana ji says they can play something else as well. Kunwar ji says this is the safest game, his game will be there in his hands. Avdesh challenge Rana ji to prove that not only his sword, his fate is also better than Avdesh.
If he loses, his soul will get peace. Kokilla bucks Rana ji to say yes. Gayatri was worried, Rana ji thinks for a while. He says he is ready. Avdesh thinks he knew Rana ji would give him a chance, and he will take full advantage of this chance.Kunwar ji tells the rules of the game and calls to begin the game. Avdesh says he wants to make a bid. Rana ji says they are here to play Choker here. Avdesh says there will be fun. Kunwar ji says they must fulfil the conditions. Gayatri thinks about Rana ji’s annoyance when she didn’t trust him last time. Rana ji looks at Gayatri to listen to her consent. Avdesh says he has heard that mothers hand has great taste, if he wins Raaj Mata will cook for him for a week.
He says the one who will lose will have to take a drink. He says seven. Rana ji says he is sorry that Raaj Mata will have to cook for one week. Raaj Mata says she will love to cook for her son. Rana ji asks for Avdesh’s horse. He says ten, and throws the dice saying he met Gayatri on tenth for the first time. Avdesh says he is playing with Lakshmi by his side, he can’t lose. The game goes on. Raaj Mata and Gayatri get worried. Gayatri tells Rana ji that he has drunk too much. Avdesh says he already told him that the one who can’t control his drink can’t control his wife also. Rana ji says he can control both. Kunwar ji says now Rana ji has begun to win. Raaj Mata asks Kunwar ji not to interfere.
Avdesh says Raaj Mata is right, he needs to see what is left with the royalty of Amirkot to stake. Rana ji stands up and goes out of the hall. Gayatri goes behind him.In the room, Rana ji was taking out all the money and jewelry from the locker. Gayatri says Kunwar ji wants to trap him, and what he is doing. Rana ji says Kunwar ji couldn’t do anything wrong to him. Rana ji says that this time it is the respect of Amirkot, he will stake it all and win it all this time. Gayatri says he isn’t in his senses. Rana ji says he is in his full senses, she must bring this all downstairs. Gayatri comes behind him stopping Rana ji, her dress get stuck with a nail. Avdesh holds it and says he freed her.
He asks Gayatri if she is angry at him, if she asks him he will lose. Gayatri says if he wants to do something for her he must try to win, this victory or loss may affect him not her and Rana ji. She says until she and Rana ji are together, nothing can affect him. Had she been trapped in something wrong, she would have got rid of it herself. Avdesh says they will now see how turns this game. Avdesh says this is the last stake, either there will be a whole victory or a whole loss. But he must only play if he would want to. Rana ji accepts. Avdesh says in the game of fate, everything will be at stake. Money, land, and lady. Rana ji straightens up at once. Everyone else is also shocked. Raaj Mata stands up, shouts that’s it. He says that Avdesh is crossing his limits now.
Avdesh says this is the principle in Choker. Rana ji says this isn’t Mahabharat. He says that Avdesh has shown his position. Avdesh says Rana ji is leaving the ground, his head is available to him. Rana ji says hadn’t Raaj Mata called him her son, his head won’t be on his neck. Avdesh says Rana ji had promised him to give a chance, now he is running away when it is time to fulfil promise. Rana ji returns, Gayatri says he won’t play. Rana ji stops her, and says Avdesh wants a chance because he knows already that he isn’t equal to Rana ji. Avdesh says atleast he isn’t running away from the ground.
Avdesh says to Rana ji that whatever Rana ji may call him, atleast he isnt running away from the fight. Rana ji says he will play, money, land would be at stake but not his wife. A person can only stake the things that belongs to husband and a husband isnt an owner of a wife, but a partner. A woman isnt anything that can be staked, she is a mother, wife and a sister. She has her recognition, she is respected. He is ready to play if only land and money have to be staked, else no. Kunwar ji thinks what is he thinking so much, when land and money are here he will also get the wife. Avdesh accepts. Rana ji looks at Gayatri and thinks he promises she will never get the tears again in her eyes.
Avdesh also thinks he won’t let her eyes drop these pearls again, Rana ji will lose this game and she will have no problem.
Kokilla wonders whom she should pray for Choker.The game begins. Rana ji stake jewels. He wins the game. Avdesh goes to the bar to have a drink. Gayatri heads to leave, Rana ji stops her. He thinks how he behaved with her and apologize, he says he has taken the decision and he isnt going to back up. He requests her to stay with him in victory. Gayatri says it doesnt matter to her, those who play with fire can’t live for long. Rana ji says that there is no chance that Avdesh can win this game. Gayatri says if he can present Amirkot to its enemies anything is possible in this world.
Kunwar ji comes to Avdesh, he asks him to hold his hand and hands him a note about helping him cheat. Avdesh takes the seat, thinking hate is the first step of love. Gayatri has taken the first step. The game continues. Kunwar ji says the one who plays the right number… Avdesh says money and land will belong to him. Avdesh rubs the dice on floor, he drops his dice. Kunwar ji comes to hand him the dice and replace them. Avdesh smiles watching his numbers, Kunwar ji says it was a sixer and Avdesh would get another chance. There is a rule, if there are three consecutive sixers Avdesh would take the lead.
Avdesh throws again and there is another sixer. At the third turn, there is again a sixer. Raaj Mata and Gayatri are taken aback along with Rana ji who feels broken. Avdesh shouts Mahabharat! Avdesh shouts that he has lost Indravadhan! Rana ji takes his sword standing up and hands it to Avdesh. He says Amirkot is his now! Avdesh victoriously looks at him. Kunwar ji wonders who says dreams arent fulfilled, he had always wanted to see Rana ji this way. Avdesh takes the sword. Rana ji is shattered. Avdesh takes the sword out, keeps it on Rana ji’s chest and says he has taken everything but not his life. Afterall he served him so well.
He says if they want, they can stay in his palace as guests. Rana ji turns to face Gayatri and with a crying face leaves the hall.Avdesh wishes Gayatri turns once. Gayatri turns and comes to him, she asks if he thought he is the richest? He has lost his family. He might think he got rich, she hasnt seen someone poorer than her. She and Raaj Mata leave.Kunwar ji tells Avdesh that fox’s cleverness is always needed, did he like shaking hands with him. Avdesh leaves curtly. Kokilla says it was good he didnt keep the sword on his neck. Kunwar ji says someone else played this game. This Avdesh is a newly made Raja, he will show some pride.Avdesh comes to the hall where all the family photos of Rana ji’s ancestors were there. His elder said his revenge is done. Avdesh says his revenge hasnt completed yet, they turned his ancestor’s faces black. His revenge isnt complete now.
He comes to turn all the faces in the photos black. He says now this slap will also go to Indravadhan’s father’s face. Raaj Mata holds his arm from behind. Avdesh asks how she stopped him, Indravadhan has lost and she is no more a Raaj Mata. Raaj Mata says Indravadhan has lost, but Rana ji is still on the throne. She says he called her mother, this relation is purest than anything and nothing is stronger than the prayer of a mother. But there is no catastrophe in the world than the curse of a mother.
Avdesh says this all won’t effect him, she must save this drama for her son and let him rule. Raaj Mata laugh loud, and asks if he wants to rule and be a ruler. No ruler becomes ruler by sitting on throne, Rajas are made by ruling the hearts. The people of Amirkot and its land recognize the difference between a Raja and a robber. She leaves. Avdesh still blackens everything.
Rana ji regrets his decisions, Gayatri’s warnings, Avdesh’s words and throws things in his room in agony. Gayatri comes to him and holds his arm. He jerks her away crying. He tells Gayatri to leave him, he isn’t worth her pity even. He says he handed Amirkot to his enemy, he has fallen in the eyes of his subjects, people and even himself. Gayatri says he hasn’t lost, he was defeated with cheating. She says she can’t prove but Avdesh cheated. She says those who accept defeat only lose, but he is Indravadhan who can even turn death. Rana ji says he is upset about his mother, Gayatri says she will take care of her. He must not accept defeat so easily. Rana ji cries hugging Gayatri, she helps him on a seat and goes to see Raaj Mata.
In the corridor, Gayatri watches a ribboned note. She reads it, there is no problem in this world without a solution. If he wants the solution he must come behind the palace. Gayatri wonders who this well-wisher is, she must meet him.
Avdesh lights the candles and says he kept the letter, she must come before the candles go off. Gayatri comes there. Avdesh welcomes Rani. Gayatri says when Rana ji isn’t Raja, how come she be Rani. Avdesh says she was born to be Rani. He says this all didn’t belong to him but he won this all, just for her. Gayatri asks what he means to say. Avdesh says she is too good and he is sure leaving Indravadhan is really difficult for her right now. But he has an offer for her, if she leaves Indravadhan and become his Rani, he will hand everything back to Indravadhan. Gayatri slaps Avdesh, she says she was silent till now but he isn’t worth calling an animal because animals are loyal to their owners. He cheated someone who trusted him. She says he has only won this palace with cheating, there wasn’t and won’t be any love in his life ever. She heads to leave, Avdesh holds her. Gayatri is shocked and throws him away. He fell on floor, Gayatri hold the candle stand over him and says he will now even burn in fire. Doesn’t he know Raavan also died for putting a bad eye on a lady? He must be afraid of the day when Indravadhan will question him for this. Candle wax melted on Avdesh’s jacket.
A servant brings something for Raaj Mata. She says she doesn’t want it now. He doesn’t leave and instead show her a doll. Raaj Mata takes it and asks who gave it. The servant says it was a man with the letter. The letter said she must meet him in forest just now. Raaj Mata hurries. Avdesh takes the candle stand from her hand, he tells her to make someone afraid of death who is alive. He had died and vanished when he saw her. Gayatri was afraid saying he is crazy. Avdesh says the one who is crazy only loves. Gayatri is afraid and calls Rana ji. Avdesh holds her, he shouts what Rana ji has that Avdesh doesn’t have. Neither Rana ji has name, nor money. He leaves her at once, calms himself down and says Indravadhan has nothing worth her. Had he been in place of him, he wouldn’t have allowed anyone touch her even. Gayatri says if he even takes hundred births, he can’t be the dust of his shoes. She pushes him away and runs inside. Avdesh keeps crying for Gayatri.
Kokilla and Kunwar ji enjoyed fruits. Kokilla says she is happy to have stealth some food, else what that crazy Raja would do to them. Kunwar ji says he owes them something, he won because of their help. He says they wouldn’t have to leave the palace, they will stick to him so much that won’t leave until they get the throne. Swarna comes to their room, she says she is no more a Rajkumari and there is no questions of heir now. Kunwar ji comes to her and says they haven’t lost the game, they will win the throne and a throne needs an heir that she will give them. He says if she is in doubt, he can get her a gift from her father. Swarna remembers a finger gifted to her from his father. Kunwar ji said this was her father’s finger and next time she will get her father’s head. Kunwar ji tells Swarna that she will tell them a good news, and that soon. A servant comes to call them all into the hall.
Rana ji apologizes them all saying their family had to lose everything because of him. He says he will lose tomorrow morning. Swarna spots Gayatri coming inside. Rana ji is worried and runs towards her asking what happened. Gayatri was crying, lost. Rana ji asks where Raaj mata is. Gayatri says she had told him that Avdesh… he… Rana ji asks what he did. Gayatri begins crying. Avdesh comes in saying he will tell him what he has done. He says to find Indravadan’s difficulties solution, Gayatri came to meet him. Gayatri says he is lying, he sent her a letter without any name. Gayatri says he wants to break their relation and trap Rana ji. She watches Rana ji staring Avdesh who stood innocently.
