A senior woman of the brothel calls a meeting and tells all the prostitutes to give their best performance in the palace and win prizes. She sees Anarkali in the morning and sympathizes. She questions who has brought the girl to the place. Another woman says that she has kept Anarkali as a captive, as per the order of prince Salim.
The first woman opines that whores have some principles too; they cannot compel someone to stay in the brothel. The second woman replies that she was ordered to keep Anarkali just for one night and release her, so that her reputation is permanently spoilt.
