Back home, Dadi and the rest of the family are happy to see Kartik and Sirat back. She tells him they contacted the Pandit and he said they could do the rasam until late evening.
Kartik and Sirat find themselves in a fix. He is given the mangalsutra and just when he is about to tie it, it breaks. Dadi considers it inauspicious, but Kartik convinces her that it’s a good omen since Sirat didn’t wear it. Surekha says it’s difficult for the chain to break so easily but Kartik counters her.
The next day, Kairav and Krish return from school. Surekha finds them talking about Sirat. Kairav is about to tell Krish that Kartik and Sirat’s marriage is fake but Sirat comes there and diverts his attention.
Kartik thanks Sirat for picking up and dropping the kids from school. Manish tells Kartik this should not happen from tomorrow as he got a call from the head of the school for sending an under-trial murderer to school. Sirat promises not to go again. This also leads to a dispute between Manish and Kartik.
Later, former boxer Sikander Singh comes to the Goenka villa. He offers to be Sirat’s coach. Even though he was embroiled in the steroid controversy earlier, Sirat decides to give him a shot. They do a mock session which makes Sirat finalise him as her coach.
