Once there was a king 9 February 2022: Gayatri tells Sartaj to run away from here as far as possible. Sartaj asks why she is doing so? Gayatri says she can suffer the accusation on herself, but not the sin of father’s murder on her husband. Sartaj blesses Gayatri and leaves. The guard watches this. Sartaj runs out of the palace, he confronts Bari Rani maa. Bari Rani Maa says if he wants to live, he must never return to Amirkot now. Sartaj asks for some other order from her. Bari Rani Maa says later, right now he must leave. Bari Rani Maa asks Mansen if they are ready?
The guard tells Rana ji that the prisoner has run away. Rana ji says not even air can go out without his permission, how can the prisoner run away. There is some betrayer in the palace, who has helped. The guard says that Rana ji is right. Rana ji asks who helped him. The guard says Gayatri herself helped Sartaj to run away. Everyone is shocked hearing this. Rana ji calls for Gayatri to be brought to palace.
He asks Gayatri if she helped Sartaj, a punished prisoner to run away. Bari Rani Maa comes there and says Gayatri won’t go against him ever. There can be Sartaj’s planning in this all. Gayatri says whatever she did, was with her own will. She says she made Sartaj run away, because his death in the hands of Rana ji must be a sin.
Rana ji says either God or a prince has the right to decide the sin. Bari Rani Maa says Gayatri must have a motive. Rana ji says no one will interfere between a Raja and a Rani, he says to Gayatri that she has broken his trust, she has betrayed the Amirkot. She has sent a wrong message to his subjects that he can’t give punishment to the criminals. Gayatri says she is doing this all for the wellbeing of Amirkot. Rana ji asks what is good for Amirkot in this. Gayatri thinks about Raaj Mata’s advice and says she can’t tell him about it. Rana ji shouts that she must tell him, he is Rana of Amirkot. Gayatri says she is the princess of Amirkot, she had no proof of Sartaj being the criminal.
Rajeshwari comes there clapping, she says she has seen the justice of Rana Indravadhan today, they have made a good drama of this all situation. Rana ji says Gayatri disappointed him today, has she forgotten the vows they had taken at the time of marriage. Gayatri’s tear fell off her eyes, she tries to hold his arm but he jerks her away. Rajeshwari runs away from the palace, Bari Rani Maa calls her dramatically. Rana ji goes behind Rajeshwari, she was about to jump out of the window. Rana ji stops her. She says she wants to die thinking her criminal is still alive. Rana ji says he won’t stay alive. Rajeshwari says she can’t trust anyone again, she takes the knife from his belt but he slaps her hard. Rajeshwari says he hasn’t slapped her but himself.
Had he been a true Rajput, he won’t have let that criminal leave the palace. Rana ji brings Rajeshwari to the hall back, Rana ji says he will fulfil her promise and will kill Sartaj with his own hands. He says either before sunset, Rana ji will bring Sartaj’s head or else there won’t be a sunset. Gayatri looks at Rajeshwari with hatred. Rana ji brings his gun, looks at Gayatri then leaves.Rana ji and his men went through the forests looking for Sartaj. He says Sartaj is nowhere to be found, but they won’t leave without him. He finds a man Sartaj running on a side, he calls him to stop but he doesn’t. They follow him. Rana ji calls him to stop.
Rajeshwari comes to Gayatri and asks if she is punishing Rajeshwari because of her brother. She says that her brother will mix poison in their lives, and she and Rana ji would also not live peacefully. Rana ji calls Sartaj to stop else they will open fire. He doesn’t stop. Rana ji pulls the trigger, the bullet hits a man who fell off on the ground. Rana ji comes to him, he says a man can be saved from the gun but not from justice.Rajeshwari waits restlessly in the palace. Swarana tells Gayatri not to worry, Rana ji must be back. Gayatri says if Rana ji does what he shouldn’t, everything will be spoilt.
Swarna asks what that means. Raaj Mata says nothing, Gayatri is just worried. Kokilla happily asks Kunwar ji if Rana ji will leave the throne if he is unable to kill that man. Kunwar ji tells her to shut up and see there is going to happen what never did in the past. Rajeshwari says there will be no justice done to her, she must give her life would be better. She goes to pick the knife again, Gayatri struggles with her to stop her. The door opens, Rana ji comes with a body in his arms. Rajeshwari is happy. Rana ji keeps the body on the floor, Rajeshwari says that Rana ji killed Sartaj with his own hands. She joins hands and says she suspected him and his justice, but today he proved he doesn’t heed anything in front of justice, neither family nor love. She orders the cloth removed from his face, he wants to see how her criminal look like, dead.
The body was of Avdesh, everyone is shocked. Tear fell off Rana ji’s eyes. Rajeshwari fell over the body in disbelief, she asks Rana ji what this is. She cries and complains that he went to bring Sartaj’s head. Rana ji says he had fired Sartaj but doesn’t know how… Rajeshwari asks what he wants to say, who his murderer is. Rana ji says he is the culprit, Avdesh lost his life from his gun’s bullet. Gayatri is left in shock.Rana ji says he is Rajeshwari’s culprit, Avdesh lost his life from the bullet fired from his gun. Gayatri watches Avdesh in shock. Rajeshwari gets hysteric at Rana ji saying he killed her brother. Bari Rani Maa says it all happened without a will.
Rajeshwari says Rana ji is a murderer and blood stains are washed by blood stain, there is life for life in the rule of justice. She says today a sister condemns Rana Indravadhan with death sentence. She takes the knife and attacks Rana ji. Gayatri runs in between them and holds Rajeshawari’s hand. Gayatri is hurt on shoulder. Rajeshwari runs towards Avdesh’s body crying. Rana ji and Raaj Mata take care of Gayatri. Rajeshwari says now, she won’t leave anyone in the palace now.Bari Rani Maa had told Mansen that Avdesh is there in the forest of Amirkot. He must kill Avdesh, and she will tell him later where he has to keep his body.
Bari Rani Maa says that if Rani has to move forward, players must die.Bari Rani Maa consoles Rajeshwari, she says her brother’s life was a small one. Rajeshwari says some people’s lives are made small, she says to Bari Rani Maa that she had been called once from God, did she go? Bari Rani Maa clutches Rajeshwari with head, saying she will make Rajeshwari understand. Raaj mata thinks how Rana ji can do such a mistake, she must know if this is a planning or an accident.Rajeshwari clutches Bari Rani Maa’s neck. She asks Bari Rani Maa why she brought her brother in between.
Bari Rani Maa thinks how she can tell her that it was impossible to break the bond between Gayatri and Rana ji. She thinks she told Sartaj that he will take Rana ji in the forest, when Rana ji fires on him it must appear that he has died. But at that time, there will be another body there hanging with the tree. Rana ji must see that body, which was already there. Bari Rani Maa says her brother was her companion, how she could have killed him.Rana ji clean the injury of Gayatri. Gayatri says this is a small bruise, it will fill. Rana ji asks what about the injury of Rajeshwari? He says there are two dead bodies, one of Avdesh and the second of his justice. He says that this blood stain will never wash away.
Rajeshwari says she won’t let her brother’s blood was away from Rana ji’s hand. She says she will take revenge from Rana ji of her brother’s blood. Bari Rani Maa says killing Rana ji isn’t that simple, but what she will get. Rajeshwari says revenge doesn’t see light or dark. Bari Rani Maa says justice does, she has to decide if she wants revenge or justice. Her brother was killed twice, once in the hand of Rana ji and once when Gayatri rejected his love. Rajeshwari says she will kill them both, but Bari Rani Maa stops her and says this will free them all. She has to put them in situation where they can neither drown, nor come out of the water.
Rajeshwari asks what that means. Bari Rani Maa says there is one way, she gets Rajeshwari a box. Rajeshwari is shocked to see it, throws it and breaks the glass over Rana ji and Gayatri’s photo.
Rana ji says to Gayatri that she is as responsible for Avdesh’s murder as he is, he will never forgive her for this. He leaves the room. Raaj Mata asks Gayatri if she is fine. Gayatri says she wanted Rana ji to save from a sin, she ruined her own shawl. Raaj Mata says that question is how it all happened, how did Avdesh lose his life with the bullet that Rana ji shoot at her.
In his room, Kunwar ji says he doesn’t know where that Avdesh came from in the palace. Rana ji sent him out of the palace, then Raaj Mata brought him back. Then his sister also came here. Kokilla says that Sartaj also came in the palace.
Then that Gayatri made Sartaj run away. Kokilla says that Avdesh was killed instead of Sartaj. Kunwar ji says Rana ji can’t do such a mistake, there is a thread that sews them all together. Laksh says Bari Rani Maa came before this all. Kunwar ji says she is the once, a dog’s tail can be made straight but his mother can never turn good.Rana ji says to Bari Rani maa that she doesn’t understand how he can make this mistake. Bari Rani maa says now they must only worry how they have to take care of Rajeshwari, she has no one. Avdesh had already killed all his relatives for throne. She says that now no one is there for Rajeshwari and her country. Rana ji says he committed a huge sin.
Bari Rani maa says he must pay for this all. He has to take the responsibility of Rajeshwari and her state. Raaj Mata comes there, Bari Rani maa says she will see the arrangements of Avdesh’s last rituals. She hears Raaj Mata says to Rana ji that this accident hurt him, but till how he will punish himself and Gayatri for something they haven’t done. Rana ji asks if she still side Gayatri knowing what she has done. Rana ji says that the truth that Avdesh has died won’t change by anything. He says that Gayatri isn’t always right. Bari Rani Maa thinks that Raaj Mata is a weak player, she doesn’t enjoy enemity against her.
In the palace, Gayatri sat on her chair when she hears a bell being rung. Everyone goes to see. It was Rajeshwari who cried with Avdesh’s body, she calls for the Raja and tell him that an orphan girl is here to ask for justice for her brother’s blood, she won’t leave until she gets justice. She cries hard. She shouts where that Rana Indravadhan Singh is. Kokilla says to Kunwar ji that she is afraid of her, Kunwar ji tells her to stay here, and maybe she gets Rana ji off throne. Rana ji comes downstairs. Rajeshwari says to Rana ji that when Rajas come people welcome them, her brother won’t be able to do that. She apologizes him for this misbehavior. She says she has again come here with the plea of justice. Her brother was leaving, but he brought him back here. Her brother had loved only. She says they made Sartaj run away.
Gayatri says Rajeshwari must consider first what they know about the respect of woman. Rana ji asks Gayatri to let Rajeshwari speak. Rajeshwari says that Gayatri helped Sartaj run away from the jail, and Rana ji killed her brother, until they both get punished her brother’s dead body will not be moved from here.
Rana ji says he accepts his mistake. Rajeshwari laughs hysterically, she claps and says the Raja of Amirkot who killed her innocent brother, will only punish himself with death. What will happen to her then, she will be left alone. She only had her respect and her brother in life, and Rana ji has snatched everything. Rana ji asks what she wants, he can’t return her brother but he is ready to give her anything she asks for. Rajeshwari brings out the sindoor box.
Rajeshwari says a girl’s respect is protected by three men, father, brother and husband. Her father left her, her brother was snatched, now she will get buyers. Rana ji says those who don’t have anyone, Raja’s take their responsibility. Rajeshwari says that Rana ji can only do a single thing for her now. She opens up the sindoor box, Gayatri and Rana ji are shocked, and so is everyone else. Bari rani maa remembers Rajeshwari had been crying, and she had handed her with the sindoor box. She told Rajeshwari that this will change her fate today. Rajeshwari says he he really wants to repent, and wants to do justice he must also go away from his love, the way he made her away from the one she loved the most.
Rana ji looks at Gayatri. Rajeshwari says she will never smile in life, he must also get away from his happiness. He must get away from Gayatri. Rajeshwari says if he really wants to do justice, he must fill in Sindoor in her head. This will be Rana ji’s repentance and her justice. Gayatri comes forward, throws the sindoor box with her hand on floor. She says like brother, like sister. She is doing with Rana ji what her brother did to her. How dare she thought about it? Rajeshwari says there is a huge difference, brother has died and sister is alive, and till this sister is alive she won’t let them live in peace. She rubs the sindoor on the floor on her hand and then on her face. She says the color on her face will be removed with her sindoor only. Gayatri says not one’s face but heart is blackened.
Rajeshwari says she must remember that this is stained the reputation of Rana ji now, these stories will go to every house in Amirkot. Gayatri says sindoor cannot be divided. Rajeshwari says she has come to snatch her sindoor. Rajeshwari says Gayatri is proud of her husband, if Rana ji wants to pay back he must make her a Rani. Gayatri says she won’t back off so easily, Rajeshwari wants to snatch off the right. Rana ji says Rajeshwari is asking something wrong, he won’t do this. He accepts his mistake, he had gone to kill Sartaj and he doesn’t know how…
Rajeshwari says he doesn’t know how her brother was killed. Rana ji asks Rajeshwari that he can never do unjust to Gayatri, the punishment must only be for him. Rajeshwari says he isn’t worth calling a Raja. He is a coward Rana. Gayatri asks Rajeshwari how dare she, who is she to call this to Rana ji. Gayatri says those who say this all in this palace… Rajeshwari asks if they are killed like her brother. She asks if she said wrong. Rana ji says this was an accident, he is ready to accept any punishment but never this sindoor.
Gayatri smiles at Rana ji. Rajeshwari says he would turn away from what he promised, she gets on the body of Avdesh and says that today she swears she will get justice, until he fills sindoor and accepts her as wife, her brother’s last rituals won’t be performed.
The royal family goes inside. Gayatri comes inside and was about to keep a hand on Rana ji’s shoulder when he says this had to happen. She has ignited the game by helping Sartaj run away, the fire had to get him now. He says to Gayatri that there is something she is hiding, there must be a reason that she went against him. Gayatri was crying. Rana ji asks what that reason is. He says he is her husband, what is such a thing that she can’t tell him. He says right now their relation is at stake, and he can’t lose it. He asks why she helped Sartaj, the day she was talking to Raaj Mata and when he came there she got silent. He asks why? Gayatri thinks she wish she could tell him. Rana ji asks what the secret that she is hiding is. Gayatri asks him to apologize her, she can’t tell him about it. Rana ji gets back, he says there is really a secret. Rana ji says ships don’t drown because of the water of the sea, but it drowns with the water that seeps through cracks. Today, her secret will bring cracks in their relation. He says she must not hide truth in their relation, he swears her of her sindoor. Rana ji says today she has let their relation fall to a very low level. Gayatri says she has her liabilities. Rana ji asks what they are. Gayatri denies. Rana ji says if till sun set she doesn’t tell him about this secret, she must consider their relationship has also set alng with the sun. He jerks her hand away and leaves.
Raaj Mata says that the bullet for Sartaj can’t get to Avdesh, she says that only Sartaj can answer her about it. She orders the guards to get Sartaj alive at any cost. Gayatri comes there crying. Raaj Mata sends everyone away, Gayatri says today she is here with her life’s biggest problem. Rana ji has asked her to decide, if their relation is bigger for her than this secret that she is hiding. She has to choose any one from this secret and relation. If she chooses secret, she will lose her husband and if she chooses the relationship then Amirkot will lose its Raja.
Rajeshwari sat with Avdesh. Bari Rani Maa and Rana ji watched this from upstairs. Bari Rani Maa says she has lost her right to interfere in his personal matters, still she knows that the death of Avdesh is a burden on him. He must walk with this burden, he can’t kneel down in front of it. Gayatri is his true love and it is always heavy. She says love line in there is only few people’s hands, there is nothing in this world above this love.
Raaj Mata says to Gayatri that responsibility is greater than relation. If relationship breaks, only two lives are destroyed but if this responsibility is let go of, the whole Amirkot will scatter. Gayatri says a wife can’t give her husband at the cost of anything. If their relation breaks today, Rana ji will also break. Raaj Mata says a thread can be knotted, but a chain can’t be. She says even if Rana ji marries Rajeshwari, she will still remain his first wife. If she tells the secret Rana ji himself will scatter. Raaj Mata says a sky can live without rain, but not without its heights. She pleads Gayatri to save this sky and says a mother is requesting her son’s life from her. Gayatri has to decide, if she will become a second wife or a widow? Raaj Mata kneels down and asks for her son’s life, crying. Gayatri looks towards sky.
Bari Rani Maa says that she knows that Rana ji’s life has the rule that promise comes before life. Bari Rani Maa says her repentance will be left alone if his life’s happiness goes away. She says she will go to Gayatri and ask what she is hiding. Rana ji says to Bari Rani Maa that Gayatri will never let their relation break, he knows she is complicated but in love people always find ways. He is sure Gayatri will also find a way. He says thanks to Bari Rani Maa who turns to leave. Bari Rani Maa thinks this time she has locked all the ways of Gayatri. She has now understood that good people want to give sacrifices, and with her sacrifices comes the first victory of Gayatri.
Pandit ji says to Rajeshwari that they must perform the last rituals by sunset tonight, else his soul wont be free. Rajeswari stands up and says no one will touch her brother. She goes to get the body ready, drags it herself. Kokilla says to Kunwar ji that she appears to be a witch. Kunwar ji says they can’t handle one wife of Rana ji, what they will do with two. Rajeshwari is so cunning, they must know what she is up to and how Bari Rani Maa met her.
Rana ji comes to the terrace thinking about him and Gayatri. Gayatri walks in the corridor, upset. There Rajeshwari dragged Avdesh’s body in the palace. Gayatri thinks about Rana ji’s warning. She takes her bangle off, that Rana ji had gifted her with. Rana ji walked the corridor, he comes to their wedding photo. There Gayatri also held a photo of theirs. Rana ji comes out of the palace and walks in the gallery. Gayatri comes out to him, both hug each other. Rana ji says she doesn’t need to say anything, he knows that Gayatri will never let down their relation. She can give her life away not promise. Gayatri thinks that either way he will get the pain.
