Naina sits on the bench while everyone is practising. Sameer hands her food avoiding everyone’s eyes. She munches onto it while pretending to read her script. He smiles. Days pass by. Naina practises for her drama as Sameer sits beside her. He tries to write.
(Voiceover – Naina):
Those days were gold days. Those rehearsals, Sameer’s love and our never ending talks! Days were passing by so quickly. We dint realise when the day of the drama came. It was going to be a very important day of my life.
Tai ji calls Naina repeatedly. Anand wishes her good luck for tomorrow. Tai ji is unhappy but Bela is proud of Naina as always. Tai ji remarks that this is why she is so revolutionary. She is acting as Rani Leelavati after all! You may or may not agree but this is the
truth. Preeti points out that Rani Leelavati was famous for that only. Anand suggests that everyone should go to watch the play. Tai ji agrees. Rakesh enters and complains about everything that is going on around them. Tai ji says he lectured everyone just because he dint find place to park a scooter. They both get into an argument. Anand calms everyone. It is a good day. Naina and Bela share that it is Inter College Competition tomorrow. Anand asks him to accompany them too but he refuses. Bela tells Naina not to be sad. We will be there. I will whistle on your every dialogue. In her excitement, she ends up whistling. Tai ji looks at her. Naina and Bela hide a smile.
Next morning, the last minute preps are on. Principal Ma’am is worried what if they lose this time also. Poonawala is positive they will win this time. She is happy thinking about how beneficial it will be for VJN if they win. Poonawala tells Kartik that it is only he and Naina who are responsible for VJN’s victor. Kartik nods. Preeti wishes Poonawal (with dreamy eyes). Everyone is curious as to where Naina is.
Naina is pacing in the corridor. Sameer asks her why she is still here. Competition has already begun. She tells him that she wanted to meet him. How is your hand? He replies that he is fine and offers her Prasad. He went to temple for her. She is touched.
Bela, Anand and Tai ji are looking for the auditorium.
Sameer feeds Prasad to Naina. Remember that you are the best. She feeds him laddoo too. He asks her why she fed him. She says it is so you should love this best girl like this always.
Tai ji complains that she dint even eat well as they were in a rush. They see Sameer and stop in their tracks.
Principal Ma’am announces the start of the competition.
Tai ji, Anand and Bela are pleased to meet Sameer. He shares that he is handling backstage stuff. Bela notices Prasad in his hands. Did you go to temple? He nods. I went to temple as I had to wish for someone. Tai ji asks him about it. He ends up taking Naina’s name but then covers up saying that he went to pray for Naina and her team. Bela says I will go to temple to pray that we get a SIL like you only. Anand looks at Sameer. If God forbids, it will surely happen. Sameer smiles. Bela and Tai ji rush to take a seat. Anand tells Sameer that they are finally done fighting it seems. Sameer is surprised to know that he knows about it. How? Anand says her sad face told me everything. Fights are just a part of life. They add spice to life. He takes Prasad and goes to see the play.
Poonawala checks on Kartik if he has any last minute doubts. He has Made important changes in the script in the last minute. Kartik is hesitant but Poonawala does not budge. Kartik asks him if Naina is aware of these changes. Poonawala nods. I am outside. You should practise now.
Patel college is next to go on stage. A guy cheers aggressively for his college. Pundit tells him to be careful or he will have a sore throat. The guy tells him to shut up. Munna and Pundit say same to you to him.
Kartik smiles reading the script.
It is VJN’s turn now. Everyone claps excitedly. Sameer too takes a seat. The play starts. Naina is seated on a swing. Sameer does thumbs up in her direction. She smiles looking at him. The play starts with a dance. Sameer and Naina keep looking at each other sweetly throughout the dance. Poonawala and the guy (from Patel College) glance at each other. Bela is excited with Naina’s dance. First act begins.
(Voiceover – Sameer):
I was so happy for Naina, myself and my college that day. I had no idea that the next 5 minutes will burn me from inside. I go mad thinking about it even today!
Precap: Kartik has kept his hand over Naina’s head. Sameer and everyone are taken aback to witness something.
