Ishaan compliments Indira on her smile and asks how she and Rishi got wet. Indira blushes and lies that they got wet because of the rain. Ishaan wonders when it rained. Mandira enjoys a magazine in her room. As soon as she hears Indira coming, she fakes gloom and sits looking depressed. Indira comforts her and assures her that she would not get married till she married her off. Mandira immediately becomes happy. Vidit asks Indira why she was blushing and smiling so often. He calls Rishi a magician and states that he did what the Sharma family could not do in so many years make Indira smile. Indira blushes once again much to Vidit's surprise. On coaxing further, Indira reveals to Vidit that she and Rishi got married secretly. She tries to explain that the circumstances were unusual and that they did not mean to hurt anyone. Hearing this, Vidit angrily calls out to Rishi. When Rishi comes to the room, Vidit angrily questions him about the marriage. Rishi starts justifying when Vidit breaks down into laughter. He congratulates the two of them for taking the right decision. Later, Rishi tells the family that an alliance was interested in meeting them for Mandira's marriage proposal. After Mandira walks away blushing, Indira confirms with Rishi if he had told the alliance about the issue that happened with Mandira. Rishi lies that he had apprised the family about the issue. Kutumb notices that Sunaina had not applied sindoor and points it out to her. She says that it was inauspicious for a married woman to keep her forehead empty. Indira hears Kutumb's advice. Indira goes into her room and applies a pinch of sindoor on her forehead. Just then, Inder enters the room and is shocked to see Indira in sindoor.
Weighed down considerably by the enormous responsibility of single-handedly providing for her large family, young Indira Sharma (played by Rati Pandey) throws herself into the daunting task and the well-being of her family becomes her sole agenda in life. In facing the daily challenges thrown her way on both the home and work front, she loses her sense of humour, her ability to feel finer emotions and becomes a regimental disciplinarian, a workaholic and a perfectionist who is almost always on the verge of losing her cool. Enter then, Rishi (played by Sumit Vats), a tenant whose sunny smile, light-hearted wit and jovial spirit comes like a breath of fresh air for a family that is beginning to feel exasperated under the reign of their Hitler Didi. Will sparks fly when such sharply contrasting personalities cross paths under the same roof? Will Rishi be successful in getting Indira to smile, dream and love all over again? Only time will tell!
