Sheela puts in the idea of bringing together Rubal and her niece, Payal to which Pankhuri responds enthusiastically. She decides to walk up to Rubal and know his view on the idea.
Rubal, on the other hand is already lost in Payal's dreams. His dream is broken off when Kiara pulls him to check the marriage photographs. He pulls out all Payal's pictures and hides them under a cushion in a play way style which Pankhuri overlooks. She tries to derive the truth from Rubal's mouth in which Pankhuri succeeds.
Preeti is still under the trauma of her kidney damage and turns extremely negative and breaks down in Sameer's arms. Sheela along with her husband try to convince Payal's father to move to Mumbai to bring Rubal and Payal closer to which he agrees.
Sameer tried to console Preeti by telling her that they'd treat her in the best way possible. Their conversation is broken when Avantika calls in. Preeti hides the truth from her sister and informs of her well-being. Pankhuri rings Adi to share the news of bringing Rubal and Payal together as a couple.
Adi is excited and his excitement doubles when he sees Payal, his cousin in his office who brings in lunch for Adi. He routes her to his cabin. He notices Rubal's ex-girlfriend in his office and asks her to leave immediately. Payal serves Rubal shyly, however, he is unaware of the fact that she dreams of becoming his life partner.
Preeti's mother-in-law hands over medicines to Preeti and asks her to stay calm and composed.
Rubal helps Payal in collecting the fallen utensils and praises his smile and cooking. Payal smiles shyly.
