Tanuja (Kratika Sengar) asks Rishi (Ssharad Malhotra) to promise to her that he will never cry again. Rishi goes to talk to Raaj as Tanuja feels happy that she finally got her love. Malaika is desperately waiting for Shekhar and vents about the Bedi family to him. Since Tanuja’s room is right above the backyard, she overhears Malaika’s voice. She hears Malaika accept that Shekhar is her boyfriend. Malaika reveals her intentions and their plan to destroy Rishi. Raaj tells Rishi whatever he did was right and gives some gyaan about faith in relationships. Rishi thanks Raaj for getting them married before leaving the room.
Rishi sees Tanuja in a hurry and worried. He asks her what happened and she tells him that Malaika is not what she is. Tanuja drags him to their room to show the backyard but Malaika is missing from them. Tanuja tells him that she saw him with a guy just some time back and rushes to meet Malaika at the door. She questions Malaika about her ‘brother’ but she just acts like she doesn’t know anything. She keeps Malaika who the guy was and she says ‘boyfriend’.
Tanuja tells Rishi everything that she heard and Malaika lashes out at her saying that she just said what Tanuja wanted to hear. Malaika cribs to Rano but Tanuja stops her to give it back to her. Rano stops Tanuja and tells Rishi that if Tanuja had told them about Smiley’s pregnancy earlier, they could have done something in time. Tanuja tries to justify herself but Malaika butts in telling her that Rano will only listen to her. Tanuja swears to protect Rishi from everything including her.
Tanuja tries telling what she saw to Rano but she refuses to believe it. Rano asks Rishi to throw Tanuja out of the house and marry Malaika. She threatens to die if he doesn’t do so since she hates Tanuja a lot. She promises her that Raaj’s health won’t be affected by this and tells him that she had made a promise to Malaika.
