N.B. The character of Shyam essayed by Dharmesh Vyas is introduced from this episode. Satish's mother Malati spots Savitri emerge from Govind's car at a safe distance from their home & her fertile imagination concludes they must be having an affair. In fact, such is her conviction that she rings up Madhavi especially to inform her of the fresh storm brewing. Govind is naturally worried about Savitri spilling the beans of his amorous advances last night & though she confesses she was stunned as she has always regarded him on par with her father, she will keep quiet till he treated Madhavi with the respect she merits instead of referring to her as a 'frigid woman'. Elated, on being allowed to enroll in college, she rushes to complete the formalities of admission running into Shyam Varma (Dharmesh Vyas), one of the most popular lecturers of P.C. College whom she mistakes for a student. Shyam's colleague Mishra (Vijay Mishra) can't help but notice the rather obvious attraction generated in him by Savitri who phones up Madhavi in desperation as she's falling short of cash required for admission & threatens to approach Govind if she fails to part with it as well as a passport size photograph.
