Bhumi cannot stand the burning coal any longer and falls. Unimpressed, Isha causes the coals to burn even hotter. However, Vedika triumphs as she completes the ‘mantras’. Later, an emotional Sahil tends to Vedika and her charred feet. At night, Bhumi visits Vedika and, when she sees no burn injury, viciously accuses her of cheating and using Ved only to get back with Sahil. Sahil, who overhears this, demands Bhumi apologise to Vedika. Bhumi refuses, leaving Vedika weeping uncontrollably.
