In the show Punar Vivah - Ek Nayi Umeed, with Raj saying NO to divorcing his wife, Sarita, the lives of these lead characters are taking a different turn altogether.
Aarti Sindhia from the previous Punar Vivah, played by Kratika Sengar, was on the show for a one hour long episode. She enters the second Punar Vivah as Sarita's friend. She then persuades the couple Raj and Sarita to participate in a contest for husband and wives.
The contest showed how compatible Raj and Sarita are. Though both of them brush this off by saying the reason for this is the 10 year old friendship they have had, Aarti would see through them. She realises they have love for each other and it is only in time they would have to accept the love they have for each other.
Raj and Sarita who had decided to get a divorce, so they can move forward to getting married again, seem to be thinking things through. Especially Raj, who thinks he is still in love with Divya, decides to get his wife married off first so he can move on with his life, married to Madhu. But when they set out to get a divorce first, Raj is the one who declares he does not want a divorce!
Sarita, on the other hand, is head over heals for her beloved husband. She decides to get married to another person so that he can marry his long lost love.
With Raj saying 'No' to the divorce, it shelved for the time being. But there seems to be something else altogether brewing below the friendship they have. After ten years of their loveless marriage, they are getting a lot closer to each other off late. Let's wait and watch how their lives change.
