Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 2, 28th April written episode: A shattered Astha behaves like a puppet in the puja rituals, after the shock. She feels more uncomfortable when Niranjan comes and stands beside her. Shortly, she sees Anjali, coming to the hall with a smiling face. Astha’s face reflects the sign of empathy, that she feels for Anjali.
Fortunately, Sojal arrives within time and the rituals are perfectly completed. The priest tells Shlok and Astha to take blessings from the elders. Shlok declines to take blessings from Anjali. Astha feels utter disgust when she has to touch Niranjan’s feet.
Astha insists on touching Anjali’s feet. She tells Shlok only to stand beside her. She touches Anjali’s feet and Anjali blesses her with her bangles. Shlok feels irritated at Astha’s sympathy for Anjali.
Anjali wants to expel Sojal, who cries and apologizes helplessly. Niranjan stops Anjali saying exactly the opposite of what he said in his bedroom. He pretends to be a sensible human being. Astha sees how Niranjan again poses as a hero and makes his wife a villain. Sojal misunderstands Astha thinking that she sent her to the hospital deliberately, so that she can be expelled from the family.
Astha tries to comfort Anjali’s pain, who keeps refusing her saying that women should have the capability of bearing pain. At dinner Astha sees her eating Niranjan’s leftover. But when she offers fresh plate, Anjali rebukes her, saying that she should learn the culture and tradition of the family, where a wife’s duty is to eat her husband’s leftover. Astha vows to change this patriarchal tradition.
During the puja, Kalindi wishes that Jyoti finds the same happiness like Astha in her life. When she shows the video recording of the program, Jyoti’s eyes become wet. Siddarth joins them at dinner. He is overwhelmed to see a sumptuous meal, which is cooked by Jyoti.
