Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 2, 18th March written episode: In the white salwar suit, Astha poses as Swati in front of Shlok. Shlok becomes angry with her. He tells her that she is inflicting pain upon him, by digging up his past. He calls her a sadist. Astha tells him that she feels his pain. His sufferings make her suffer too, claims Astha. She declares that she loves him deeply, in spite of his hatred towards her.
Astha gives different colours to Shlok, saying that each colour expresses some meaning, like love, happiness or trust. A fully intoxicated Astha carries on her confessions. She says that first time she loved Shlok, without knowing him; now she has started loving him for a second time, as she has understood his heart.
Shlok wants to give colours back to Astha. Aditi, who was noticing the couple with envy in her eyes, gives the plate of poisoned colour to Shlok. Before Shlok can give the colour to Astha, a man comes and takes a handful of colour from the plate. Within a moment he starts screaming as his hands burn. Niranjan sends him to hospital promptly. He rebukes Vinayak for not paying enough attention to the colour. Aditi is upset for not being able to harm Astha. She vows to make Astha suffer.
Niranjan is much upset to see that all the ladies of the family are intoxicated. He sends everyone inside the house. Astha and Shlok cannot stop laughing. Astha becomes crazy, crying and laughing alternatively. Niranjan bursts on Anjali, for having bhang. Anjali helplessly apologizes and says that it was a mistake. She wants to punish herself for this.
In the excitement of the festival, Jyoti loses the chance of talking to Astha. She leaves the house with her eyes full of helplessness.
