While looking for Shyama, Nikhil and his brothers reach the ‘pandal’, where Shyama is singing from the backstage, and Radharani is pretending to sing on the stage by mouthing the lines. After the performance, Nikhil spots Radharani and Rukmini. He enquires Rukmini regarding Shyama’s whereabouts, and she lies to him. Meanwhile, Sujata feels humiliated as the neighbours chide her family for making them wait. When Shyama returns, Sujata rebukes her and asks her the reason for her absence.
