In Kumkum Bhagya, Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) is behind Pragya (Sriti Jha), and forces her to accept his love, while Pragya doubts Abhi's strange behaviour. To get the property back, Abhi plans to trap Pragya with the help of his wicked sister Alia and girlfriend Tanu.
On the other hand, Pragya doubts whether Nikhil associated with Tanu (Leena Jumani) or Alia (Shikha Singh). To set things right, Pragya traps Nikhil (Nikhil Arya) in such a way that he will have to accept Tanu or Alia, if he is in love with either of them.
When Abhi puts forth the proposal of Alia's marriage to Nikhil, he straight away denies it and leaves the house. Abhi feels guilty of asking in front of family, instead of talking to Nikhil, alone.
Tanu and Alia shout at Nikhil for directly rejecting the proposal. Also, Alia tries to threaten Nikhil, who retorts by saying that he will answer Abhi, the next day.
Alia and Tanu fear that if Nikhil tells the truth, their plan would be a failure and Tanu's marriage with Abhi would never happen.
The next day, Nikhil apologises to Abhi saying he should not have directly rejected the proposal. Upon insistence, Nikhil tells Abhi that he is in love with a girl and that's the reason he can't marry someone else.
On asking who the girl is, Nikhil tells Tanu's name, and immediately changes the answer by telling that Tanu knows the girl whom he is in love with. Nikhil even calls the girl, Sonali, home and introduces her to Abhi's family.
To escape from the situation, Tanu acts innocent and greets Sonali. We doubt whether Sonali knows some secret that could put Tanu in trouble! Through Sonali, Nikhil is indirectly threatening Tanu and Alia to be cautious about him!
Abhi tries to impress Pragya by getting flower. He tells Pragya that he will wait for her to accept his love.
Payal gets bed coffee for Pragya on Abhi's order. She tells Pragya that Abhi has asked her to take care of Pragya as Ronnie cannot do many work that ladies want! Ronnie and Payal, later, get into argument.
Pragya is adamant on her stand and doesn't bend to Abhi's love. She is also surprised with the changed behaviour of Abhi.
On the other hand, Nikhil gets call from Tanu, who asks her why he didn't accept Abhi's proposal for time being. Nikhil argues with Tanu, while Alia starts threatening him.
As said by Nikhil, he comes home with a reply. He tells Abhi that since he loves someone, he is not ready to marry Alia. Tanu is shocked as she is scared that Nikhil would reveal her name.
Nikhil Introduces Tanu’s Friend As His GF!
Finally, Nikhil tells Tanu's name as the girl he loves and later changes his tone by introducing Tanu's friend Sonali as his girlfriend.
