Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 2, 16th May written episode: Sid badly misses Jyoti and calls her. Jyoti tells him that she was expecting his call and wanted to thank him. He proposes a meeting. Jyoti argues that it would look bad as a man-woman relationship cannot be taken as an innocent friendship in the Indian society. Moreover she should be extra cautious, as she is married. Sid is hurt by her logic and controls his desire.
He calls Jyoti again and tells her that he is not able to find out a file. Jyoti tells him to search in a particular place. After he gets the file, he tells Jyoti to come back to his life, to set it in order again. Jyoti cannot answer.
He is not able to forget Jyoti so easily. While Jyoti is concerned about society and about her family, he is concerned about her only. He feels that he is dying to see her once. He gets a chance when Varad asks for a file over phone. Sid tells the peon that he will drop the file at Varad's place.
