Kumkum Bhagya's March 23rd episode: Abhi loses all hope for living. He tells Pragya that he would like to take farewell like a rock star and no one should cry for him. He becomes unconscious. Pragya thinks she will not let Abhi die.
Pragya finds a knife and a lantern in the hut. She lights the lantern and holds the knife in the flame to sterilize it. She musters courage and operates Abhi’s chest to take the bullet out. Then she bandages his chest and becomes busy in massaging his hands and feet.
Punit calls Aaliya and scares her for the last time. He says that he will give all the proofs to police if she does not meet him with an amount of ten lakhs. Aaliya agrees to do it. Still she calls Bulbul to know whether the ‘unknown man’ has told anything to her. Bulbul replies that she has taken money from Purab and is waiting for the person’s call, as she is desperate to get the documents.
Bulbul thinks it is the perfect time to expose Aaliya. She understands that Aaliya has completely stepped into the trap set by Punit and her. She calls all of Abhi’s family members and shares how Punit and she have collected proof against Aaliya, to establish that she was involved in the kidnapping.
Bulbul says that Aaliya would have never been scared by Punit’s call, if she were innocent. She requests everyone to come with her and see that Aaliya is waiting for the ‘blackmailer’ with money. Abhi’s dadi insists on going with Bulbul.
