Anarkali comes to the market to sell her mother’s earrings. The jeweler gives her a very little amount against the jewelry and insults her as a ‘traitor’s daughter’. Anarkali quickly leaves the shop and buys chapattis for her mother.
The announcers of the palace come to the market and announce Qutub’s marriage. Anarkali becomes shocked. A girl comes to her to pick the chapattis that have fallen on the ground. She is none other than Anarkali’s childhood friend Sakina.
Anarkali shares her problem with Sakina. She says that she has to stop Qutub’s marriage. Sakina says that Anarkali has no right to do that as Qutub never confessed his love, neither did Anarkali. Still Anarkali is hopeful.
Qutub tells Salim that he should have shared his feelings with Anarkali instead of suffering from her memories. Salim says that he hates Nadira more than he loves Anarkali. He will thrash the girl if she again comes in front of him.
