Twist Of Fate 1 December 2020: Tanu comes and starts packing pragya’s clothes in the suitcase. Pragya comes and asks whats she doing here, and how dare she touch her stuff. tanu taunts that she is merely helping her, as she would have to pack her stuff tomorrow, to leave the house. she asks if she has gone mad, as she shall not leave.
tanu says that she isnt sending, but after what happenes tomorrow, she herself wouldnt wish to stay. she says that tomorrow, after 12, she shall marry abhi. pragya is shocked. tanu thanks her for what she did, as had she not done it, then she wouldnt be getting married, as by sending purab and akash to the lawyer’s office, she gave her a brilliant idea. she says that when the papers are signed, divorce shall happen too. she says to pragya that she wanted to hide the divorce papers, so that the divorce isnt legal, and neither their marriagee, but unfortunately her lie was caught. pragya is shocked. tanu says that she wont give her another chance to think or act, and shall marry him tomorrow, and after that, she shall depart, while tanu herself rules the house. she says that once her divorce is finalised tomorrow, then they shall register and throw a reception too, as tomorrow abhi shall take away her vermillion and don it on her forehead. pragya is stunned. tanu says that he shall leave her company, and take the pious circles around the fire, with her. she says that since the sindoor and mangalsutra join a couple, hence she wouldnt be able to be with abhi anymore. she also says that she shall have her stuff shifted, as this shall be her room tomorrow onwards. pragya is shocked. tanu says that hence she was packing her stuff, and says that she cant stay in the guest room, if she so wishes, or in granny;s room, and asks her to decide with granny, as she shall stay with abhi in his room. pragya asks her to stop this nonsense. tanu says that this should have happened long back, but maybe she has a better fate, hence she remained in the house so far, but now she shall set her straight. then she asks her to see her face, as abhi wouldnt want a middle class wife like her, but he always wanted to be with a super model like her, to raise his standard. she says that money isnt everything, as she lacks class, by birth. she continues taunting her, while pragya is overwhelmed. she asks pragya to go to her mother, so that she can take care of her, as staying here would only give her pain and torment. praygya eyes her ragefully. tanu packs her suitcase, and talks about how middle class women only think about a fancy life with rich guys. to add insult to injury, she hands her a toy, and asks her to see it whenever she remembers abhi. his sister too comes, and taunts her along with tanu, that she should keep these dolls to herself, and live her life in solace now. tanu says that she wants pragya to stay alone, just like she had to for sometime. tanu says that she is relieved after a long time, not because she is marrying abhi, but because pragya is leaving. she says that the day she knows pragya has moved on, and has gotten over it, she would come to meet her, with abhi and maybe after seeing them, her wounds become fersh. she reprimands pragya for how she ruined her life. his sister asks her to calm down, as it isnt right in her condition, and then says that she along with her sister, bulbul ruined her life too. she says that she snatched abhi, and bulbul snatcehd purab, and reminds what all she had to go through due to her and bulbul. they taunt and tease her, while she is apalled. they remind her of her pitiful condition. she says that she is more happy for her marriage, than tanu herself. she counts the time down to 12 hours, and she can live as much as she wants, as she has to die every minute after that. she takes pragya and shows her face in front of the mirror, as this is the last day of her as a married woman, since she would neither be married nor have a husband tomorrow. she shows her the vermillion bottle, as neither is this hers, nor her husband, which means, her vermillion is in someone else’s fate now. she hands her the vermillion and asks her to look closely, as she came as hitler, to save abhi from enemies, but couldnt protect herself even and came married, but shall leave divorced. tanu then gives her the wedding pic, that she had torn, and abhi has cellotaped it back, to take it with her, so that she can put up her grand wedding pic with abhi. they start talking about how in depression, she might just commit suicide. tanu says that even if she dies, she would marry tomorrow, even if thats on her funeral pyre. they leave citing marriage preparations, but before going, tanu again reminds her the venue. they leave.
In granny’s room, purab and akash discuss with granny, as to what to about pragya now. granny says that she is very shrewd, as whenever she meets pragya alone, she does something drastic. Just then, abhi enters and granny asks whats the matter, as he seems hesitant. he says that he has done what she wanted him to do, and that he has been forgiven by pragya too. granny says that she too has forgiven him. he says that if noone has anything against him, then he should do that, for which he has divorced pragya, and announces that he shall marry tanu tomorrow, shocking them all. he says that he cant do this without them, and hence wants them to know first. they are apalled. he says that he is getting married tomorrow at ten in the temple, and asks them all to come. he leaves. they are distraught and wonder what to do now. akash says that they dont have time to think anymore. purab thinks that pragya would be devastated. granny laments that god is testing pragya badly.
In his studio, abhi is distraught, remembering his romantic times with pragya. Just then, purab comes and asks whats this, and how can he do this, as he got the divorce papers signed by a trap from pragya, and now even before its finalised, he is marrying tanu, and asks whats wrong, and if even he thinks that, he has to do the wrong thing. abhi asks him not to get into it, as its all become too complicated, and he cant explain it to anyone, and particularly not him. purab asks what does he mean, and asks if he has been isntructed by tanu not to speak to anyone, and asks how could he not even bother to ask him, before such a big decision, and today he proved them all wrong. he says that he found out accidentally today, or else he wouldnt have even told him. he continues to reprimand him for treating him like a stranger, after making him feel family, while abhi is frustrated and disturbed himself. he says that he reduced him to the status of a manager, and he is joining new relations on the funeral of old ones, and that he doesnt deserve to be in the house, and hence he is leaving. abhi apologises to purab and asks him to try and udnerstand, as he is like a brother, and he doesnt have anyone except him. he says that pragya isnt talking to him due to the divorce, and tanu doesnt talk of anything except marriage, granny doesnt talk, and alia is a gone case. he says that he needs him, and asks him not to desert him, even though he is angry, as his heart and mind are at cross roads. purab asks him to listen to the heart, when he knows what his heart wants. abhi says that his heart has been wanting this for a long time, but he took a long time to hear it, and now its too late, as the marriage is fixed tomorrow, and tanu’s parents are coming, and the divorce has happened, and he cant do anything even if he wants to. purab is apalled.
In her room, granny comes and finds pragya sitting tensed. granny tries to console her, but pragya stops her, saying that she is broken now, but doesnt need any consolation, sympathy or false hopes. she says that her story has ended, and she got defeated. she says that she had lost long back, but was clinging to the last hope, not able to bear any pain, and by the excuse of fighting, she was just amusing herself. Pragya tells granny that she wrongly taught her, to fight for the truth always, and that the vermillion has strong powers, as there is noone today beside her, and she is totally alone, and if there is anyone, then where is he, and the vermillion and mangalsutra. she says that there was a sister, who isnt here anymore, a mother who is so helpless, that she cant help even if she wants to, and if anyone wants to help, they land in trouble. she says that she hasnt been defeated by tanu, but by her fate, and who else would be so unfortunate, that her divorce isnt finalised yet, and the husband is marrying someone else, and whats a relation that ends by a mere signature. she says that if her vermillion isnt with her, then what does her fate behold. she says that granny was wrong as there is no place for the truth, in this world of lies, and talks about how everything is over now. Granny tells her that it isnt so. but pragya is depressed, saying that he is marrying tanu, and all is over now. granny says that she still has anger, which tells that she isnt broken from inside, and isnt defeated yet, and her anger says that she can still fight and win too. pragya eyes her tensedly. granny asks her to realise her anger within, which has kept her alive, and till this is there, she shall move on. she says that she isnt here to console or sympathise with her, but just to make her realise that just like the divorce isnt finalised, tanu isnt married yet, and till that doesnt happen, she shouldnt accept defeat. she reminds pragya that she still has time, and she can do a lot if she so wishes. pragya says that the papers are signed, and that marriage preparations are done, and tanu’s family is coming, and what can she do now. granny asks her not to think of what can happen, but what she wants to happen. she asks her to close her eyes, and remember her marriage, as this was what, tied them both together. she says that while hating and loving each other, they were always together. but they were together, and that abhi is his, and before marrying tanu, he shall be hers only. pragya is set to thinking.
Location: Abhi’s residence
Granny asks her not to give up so soon, as abhi hasnt married pragya yet, and that she would be defeated only when she accepts defeat. she says that tanu hasnt snatched abhi, but she is letting it be, and asks why is she giving up, before a loss, drawing an analogy to savitri, who brought back her husband from the dead. pragya is set to thinking. she says that abhi is still with her, and till tanu doesnt complete her marriage with him, till then, she should keep fighting, till she doesnt win or lose finally. pragya remembers her marriage with abhi, and is set to thinking.
Meanwhile, abhi walks listlessly in the corridor, he remembers purab’s advise, asking him to be with pragya tonight. he complies to purab’s statements, and decides to spend this last night with pragya. but just then, tanu meets him, and says that she wishes to talk to him rightnow. he tries to put her off till tomorrow, but she insistently takes him to her room, and shows herthe wedding dress, for the function, and asks him to see how she looks. he says that he can see tomorrow. she asks that it would just take five minutes. he screams frustratedly that he shall see tomorrow, startling her. he lashes out at her, while she gets tensed. he apologises immediately, and says that he is very tired, and there are lots of work tomorrow, and if he sleeps tonight, he shall be fersh, and he shall see her in the dress in the morning. he leaves, bidding her goodnight. she talks to the baby, as to how badly he talks, but tomorrow, his anger and her tensions would be over, as she would be married to him, and nikhil shall be in the past.
Abhi enters the room, and finds pragya sits tensedly. she gets to pretend to be busy in some work. he gets scared at the sight of a cockroach. he clutcehs at her, in the scare of the insect. an awkward romantic embrace follows. then they are aware of their proximity, and distance themselves. she says that the insect is gone. he asks her hesitantly, if they can sit and simply talk. she silently complies, still tensed. he gets up and sits in front of her, and then abhi asks pragya if she remembers their first meeting, when she was planning to commit suicide. she vehemently denies. he says that she didnt know swimming and would have drowned. he says that at that time, they didnt know each other, but there was a weird connection. he says that when he picked her up, and took her in his arms, he couldnt take his eyes away, and then asks her if he can carry her again in his arms. she is stunned. They remember their first meeting. She gets up and he complies, and hugs her, and carries her in the arms, while they keep eyeing each other, overwhlemed with a surge of emotions, remembering their past romantic moments. he places her back down, and then goes to the shelf, and comes back, and places her vermillion holder, saying that once he accidentally placed it on her by mistake. they remember that moment. she wishes to go, but he stops her one more time, and then brings the necklace, reminding her of the jewellery store where they had accidentally met. he places it in her hand, saying that the mangalsutra tied them together. she gets emotional and is about to cry, when he asks her if she can answer his one last question. she complies. he asks her if she can wear her wedding dress one last time. she is stunned hearing his request, and they continue eyeing each other, while she says that he shouldnt freshen the memories, that have faded away, as the heart shall keep demanding things, and he shall keep hurting her. she asks him to go and sleep, as its too late. he complies and leaves. she sits troubled, still remembering their marriage, and how he draped the dupatta over her. As they resignedly lie in their rooms, thyey are both upset remembering their moments with the other. they both dose off.
In pragya’s mother’s room, granny apologises to her, saying that she couldnt fulfill her promise one more time, as she had promised her that she would be by pragya to make her win, but she couldnt. purab and akash stand tensedly. granny sits beside her, and says that she cant imagine abhi’s wedding with tanu. purab says that there must be something to avert this. but granny says that there is no reason and way out, as tanu shall find some other way out, and that only one person can stop this marriage, thats abhi, and if he ignites one hope in pragya’s mind, then nothing can stop her from winning, as the willing do find a way.
The next morning, tanu wakes up to nikhil’s call, who taunts and congratulates her for her wedding, while she is frustrated. he says that pragya finally did accept, and he too is ready. he says that he is going to the airport, to receive his would be in laws. she is boggled and asks why, as they are her parents. he calms her down and says that she is getting married, and he too is planning in advance for his future. he cancels. she is frustrated at him, but then gets tensed, and eyes her wedding dress, and thinks that this day has come after a long time, and asks her to think of that only now.
Meanwhile, the butlers in the kitchen are indecisive as to what to prepare, since noone instructed them, like pragya always usually does. just then, akash’s mother comes and asks why isn the breakfast ready yet. they tell that they dont know what to make. they are told that pragya is nomore in control. the butlers say that he shall leave then, as they like the respect that pragya used to give him, instead of tanu, who used to behave with them like a slave. the members are shocked as to how they shall manage if the butlers leave. alia comes and taunts that they shall take over, as she being tanu’s friend wont work. they are smirking and hurriedly leave. alia eyes them resignedly.
In her room, pragya sits dressed as a bride, waiting for abhi to open his eyes. he wakes up to find, pragya dressed as a bride, and is plesantly surprised. he is amused and comes to her. he says that this is what he likes about her, that she always agrees to everything he says, and she is sitting in front of him, and still he cant have her in his life, since he doesnt have control over it, but its weird that she is the woman of his dreams, and he can do anything in them. she smiles. they eye each other romantically. he kisses her around the neck, and says that this is for what lecture she gave last night. she pinches her and says that this is reality. he is shocked and asks if she did agree, and she gets emotional, as he continues, saying that just like a dying man’s last wish is granted, and that he wont die, since he has a reason to live now. she tries to say something, but he pinches her nose and silences her. they both eye each other, full of tears. they both hug each other ardently, tears streaming down their cheeks. purab walks in, and finds them like that.
Purab comes down, begging for the lord to do something, a miracle to stop this marriage. tanu comes screaming for abhi, while he says that he isnt in the room. she asks if she would believe him, and that she shall go for herself and see. purab asks her if she wont listen to her brother in law now, and distracts her in conversation, so that abhi and pragya can bond. she is pleased, while he continues fooling her, and she says that she shall search for him elsewhere. after she leaves, he says that she is his bhabhi, as her child’s father, nikhil used to be his friend at one time. he asks hesitantly, if she would come with him to his marriage. she is aghast to hear this. he insists resquesting her. she eyes him stunned.
Abhi asking Pragya to attend his wedding. Pragya gets emotional. Abhi says I can’t forget that we were staying in the same room, and can’t move ahead in life. Pragya says we have shared a life and says once you move on, you will forget old ties. She says I will be with you like a friend, and will never leave you. She asks him to forget everything. Abhi asks can you forget if there is nothing between us except friendship. If you don’t attend my wedding, I will think that you have not forgiven me. He asks her to come atleast for the time which they have spent together. Pragya says I can’t share my feelings and pain with you, and that’s why I can’t come with you. Abhi says I told you not to leave me and go, and this is all happening because of you. Pragya says I am relieved that you have become matured and responsible. I can’t accept your invitation. Abhi says I will try to understand your helplessness. Pragya thinks how to tell you that I can’t see my kumkum in someone else’s maang. Abhi recalls her words and thinks I am finding a reason to stop this wedding. He says please Pragya, don’t leave me, please stay back and take care of me. Tanu gets ready as a bride, and talks to her mamma. She asks her to come directly to temple. Her mum says I am worried because of Pragya. Her dad takes the call and asks why did you send Nikhil. He is calling us sasur ji and sasu mom. Tanu says he is mad and asks them to ignore him.
Abhi gets ready for his marriage. Purab and Akash are sad. Abhi asks them to come. Pragya asks Dadi to leave her. Dadi asks her to come and says may be we can get a chance to stop the wedding. Pragya says I don’t want to come. Tanu comes there and asks how am I looking? Dadi says good and goes. Tanu asks Pragya if she liked the lehenga. Pragya says it is good, but you don’t have the glow as you have snatched someone’s love. Tanu says I can see fear of loss in your eyes, and says you too have snatched my Abhi from me. Pragya says you have waited not for him, but for his wealth. She asks her not to call her game as love. Tanu says I am happy. you have lost it and this marriage will happen. She says my 2 mins were wasted and says my mahurat is coming, and your suhaag is going far from you. She comes out and sees Abhi sad. Tanu asks Aaliya, why Abhi is upset. Aaliya says you have to marry Abhi and not his mood, so don’t worry and get photo shoot after marriage. Dadi tells Sarla that she is helpless and apologizes for failing to keep up her promise. Rachna asks Dadi, why she is losing strength. Dadi says I have been giving strength to Pragya, but now I am feeling as if it is too late. Sarla cries.
Tanu’s mum praises Tanu’s beauty. Dadi thinks Abhi is not happy with his decision. Abhi waits for Pragya and thinks she should come as it is getting difficult for him to marry Tanu. Tanu asks if she is looking good. Aaliya says yes, you are looking beautiful. Tanu says she has a glow of victory. Aaliya says it would have been fun if Pragya is watching her marriage. Tanu says she must be packing. Aaliya says I will drop that mum-daughter duo. Mitali comes and informs her that she is called outside. Tanu comes to mandap and sits beside him. Pandit ji asks Tanu’s parents to do kanyadaan. Abhi recalls his marriage with Pragya. Dadi and Purab look sad. Abhi feels he is doing wrong and thinks something should happen to stop the wedding. He thinks he has to accept this reality.
Pandit ji asks them to stand for varmala. Abhi and Tanu exchange garlands. Dadi looks upset. Abhi and Tanu start taking pheras/rounds. Dadi prays to God and asks what you are letting this happen. Purab also prays. Aaliya thinks her wish is fulfilled. Tanu thinks Pragya has lost and she has won. Abhi feels Pragya will come and stop his wedding. Tanu and Abhi continue to take pheras. Abhi feels bad and thinks I am doing wrong, but it is too late now. Pragya reaches there and asks them to stop the wedding. Everyone gives mixed reactions. Abhi moves his sehra and looks at Pragya. Tanu looks shocked. Pragya goes near them, opens the ghatbandhan and announces that this marriage can’t happen. Purab, Dadi and Akash are happy, while others are shocked.
