Indira tries to explain to Inspector Sumer that if Lalan can attack her, he could easily get Rishi kidnapped. Inspector Sumer considers Indira's justifications and threatens to hit Lalan if he does not reveal the truth. To save himself, Lalan tells Inspector Sumer that Jhumpa had compelled him to murder Indira. Inder and Indira are left shocked on hearing the truth. Inspector Sumer orders the female constables to nab Jhumpa. Jhumpa creates commotion as she enters the police station. She is unaware of the reason behind her arrest. On noticing Lalan in the police station, Jhumpa realizes that he revealed her plot. In frustration, Jhumpa attacks Lalan. To maintain order in the police station, Inspector Sumer locks Jhumpa and Lalan in custody. Indira enquires with Inspector Sumer what step he would take to save Rishi. Inspector Sumer points out that Rishi was missing and Indira could lodge a missing complaint after 24 hours. In order to find Rishi, Indira takes printouts of Rishi's photo and mentions her contact details. She sticks the posters on every street in Chandni Chowk. Later, a certain person calls up Indira and tells her that he would inform about Rishi only if she pays him Rs. 5,000. Indira requests her caller to inform her about Rishi's whereabouts. She adds that she does not have enough money to give him. The caller warns Indira that if she does not come to a certain street along with the money within an hour, she would never know where Rishi was. Concerned about Rishi, Indira goes home to get the money. She recollects that she had kept Rs. 6,000 in the tiffin. On opening the tiffin, Indira finds only Rs. 2,000 in it. On enquiring with Kutumb, Indira learns that her mother had donated Rs. 4,000. Indira is left apprehensive as she does not know how she would arrange the money.
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!
