Kumkum Bhagya February 18th episode: Neel calls in Bulbul’s mobile when she is absent in the room. Purab picks up the call seeing unknown number. Neel thinks it is Bulbul and says that he has kidnapped Pragya and will release her only after Bulbul comes to him. Otherwise he will kill Pragya, says Neel. He does not mention his name. Pragya keeps shouting that Bulbul should not come. Purab hears her voice and understands that the kidnapper is not lying.
Purab becomes extremely nervous and comes to Abhi. He tells him that there was a call from the kidnapper who demanded Bulbul in return of Pragya. Bulbul hears this and becomes emotional. She becomes desperate to go for Pragya’s rescue, while Purab does not want her to go.
Neel calls for the second time and Bulbul herself receives the call. She tells him that she will come. Neel gives her the address. Again he does not mention his name. Purab argues that there is no guarantee that the kidnapper will keep his word and release Pragya after Bulbul goes there. But Bulbul is not ready to accept any logic of Purab.
Abhi supports Bulbul. Pragya keeps thinking that Bulbul should not step into the trap. She wishes that Purab or Abhi should know about Neel’s plan. Aaliya hears the discussion of Purab, Abhi and Bulbul and appreciates Neel’s plan. She thinks that finally Bulbul will be out of Purab’s life.
Sarala remembers that Pragya told her to take care of Abhi’s Dadi in case she is absent. She decides to visit Abhi’s house. Abhi and Purab argue over Neel’s demand. Abhi gives a glass of water to Bulbul who is over-stressed. She faints soon.
