Age is Just a Number 26 October 2020: Update on Age is Just a Number Saturday 26th October 2020, Sahil’s mother, Rekha was worried at home about whatever Pandit said. Her husband finds her tensed and inquires about the matter. She replies she was only thinking about whatever Pandit said. He tells Rekha these Pandit make such predictions to get money. She has seen Prem Pratab’s daughter is extremely civilized, they will be lucky to bring her as a daughter in law. Dheeraj and Mina, (Sahil’s paternal uncle and aunt) come home after Mina’s sister’s engagement. Rekha tells them about Avantika, Prem’s daughter. Mina says she will take a gold chain as gift now.
Sahil comes home all wet from rain. Rekha was concerned that he might get cold. She brings a towel to wipe the water off. Mina congratulates Sahil. Sahil’s father strictly tells him to get responsible now on. Sahil thinks about Vaidika and says he isn’t ready for this marriage.
Vaidika’s mother asks what she did today. Vaidika doesn’t stop by and respond. Her mother says Chetna found a man for her proposal, and Vaidika said a lot to him. Vaidika says that man is a father of two daughters, still he didn’t respect women. Chetna must have supported her instead of complaining. She says she doesn’t want to marry at all and can spend her life all alone. Her mother asks what about Avantika, her father started a proposal with Shashi Kashab’s son for Avantika; what about that. Vaidika says she won’t be a hurdle in Avantika’s life. She doesn’t need to marry herself. She tells her mother to go and sleep, she has to prepare for exhibition tomorrow. They will need huge amount of money for Avantika’s wedding.
The next morning, Vaidika was busy in her exhibition. Rekha comes to the exhibition with her friends. She was tensed because Sahil wasn’t ready for marriage. They arrive at Vaidika’s stall. A lady comes there and slaps Vaidika, she was the sister of the man Vaidika had met yesterday. She insults Vaidika as she was a rejected one. She advices Vaidika one must not go to buy diamonds when you have no money. Vaidika now questions if it’s a sin to be a divorcee. The lady recognizes Rekha and asks if she would marry her young son to this divorcee. Rekha says never, her son is young and can get one in a million. The lady continue her insult. Sahil comes from the other side and says he will marry her. Everyone was shocked to hear this. Rekha was furious and asks if Sahil knows she is a divorcee. Sahil says she married but it couldn’t work, she took a divorce; what’s the problem. It could be man’s mistake as well, then why only point a woman. Did they try to know what the real problem was? Instead, they all came over to blame her. They must stop interfering in someone else’s life, instead focus on their own. Rekha’s friend asks what Sahil has to do with this girl. Vaidika leaves. Rekha stops Sahil and says this girl is a shrewd lady. Sahil was in a disbelief about his mother’s thinking. He says girl’s suicide only because of societal pressures, they must be given enough freedom to choose their life partner.
A crying Vaidika hurries into the male washroom of the exhibition hall.
There, Rekha forbids Sahil to even go close to that unlucky lady. He must only focus on Avantika. Avantika come there and greets Rekha. Rekha asks Sahil to go for a cup of coffee with Avantika. Sahil makes up his phone is ringing. His mother stops him anyway. Sahil takes Avantika for coffee. Rekha was worried if that Pandit’s future prediction comes out right, what face they will take into the society.
In the coffee shop, Avantika asks if he met his love. She asks about the name. Sahil says he met one, he doesn’t know the name but it feels he has a relation of ages. Avantika says he must trust, she is the one worth him. She tries to place her hand over Sahil’s, he resists and the coffee spills over his clothes. Sahil runs towards the washroom
Vaidika cries in the washroom that she can’t do anything on her will because she is a woman. She wonders how long a woman will continue to suffer in the society. She decides not to be a weak woman, she wants to live for her own-self sometime as well. She can’t live on directions of others. She wonders where someone is like that guy, he comes to fight for her and respects her. She wonders why he came over in her life, and always reaches in the moments of problem.
Sahil enters the male washroom and was shocked to see Vaidika inside. He asks what she is doing in men’s washroom. Vaidika feels uncomfortable and turns to leave, but slips over the water. Sahil holds her into his arms. They share a close eye lock. She asks him to leave her. Sahil says he can’t let her fell down. He asks why she faces her repeatedly, if they are connected somehow. Vaidika backs up but her dupatta was stuck with his watch. Both look towards each other in shock. Vaidika now hurries to leave the washroom but it seemed locked. There, Sahil pulls the tap but it got broken. The shower of water bathes both Sahil and Vaidika. Later, Sahil pulls open the door for Vaidika. Before she could leave, Sahil says it feels they know each other from some past life. He met an old woman, she said Vaidika was his lover in his past life, and that they shared a strange love story which couldn’t complete. He wonders why the woman said so, but he feels like believing her words. He feels to be falling in love with her. He holds his heartbeat, and says he is sure this is love. He wish Vaidika believes him. Someone calls from outside. Sahil asks Vaidika to think about what he said, and they will surely meet again. Sahil opens the door to find Rekha and other woman. Sahil explains first it was a W but then it turned to M. The women didn’t believe the story. Rekha takes Sahil along.
In the car, Rekha was still tensed. She warns Sahil not to get involved in any affair, his proposal has been fixed. Sahil says he already clarified he didn’t want to marry. Why force him. Rekha says she feels fearful, what if he falls prey to a stranger and brings her home. She asks Sahil to vow he won’t ever meet that girl. She doesn’t want him to get into a trap of divorcee. Sahil says what’s the problem, divorcees are extremely sensible and he wants to live happy. Rekha was weepy that Sahil doesn’t care for her at all.
It was night, Vaidika was at home and thinks about Sahil’s words. Her mother comes to her and says nothing will be fine if she stays silent. It will continue to happen, for how long she is going to bear taunts of people. She says she is a mother, it hurts when people point towards her. They did everything for Vaidika because she is dear to them. But society holds her as a woman left by her husband. It will continue to hurt them all. They want to protect Vaidika from all this blame. Vaidika asks how an encaged person can be happy. It was her fate that her marriage couldn’t work. It must have been her bad luck, had she suffered all that harassment. Vaidika’s mother agrees, and convince her to marry someone. She requests Vaidika to agree, it’s about two children only. Vaidika says she will live alone, but won’t connect a relation because of someone. Vaidika’s mother says God has made everyone in couples; there must surely be someone made for her. They prey Vaidika finds a companion. Vaidika claims it to be bookish. She doesn’t hold any more courage to work on any relation. She was happy for Avantika, Avantika found a good house and will stay happy.
At Kashab house, Pandit ji counts the good time of wedding after two days. Rekha says she will do the preparations, and want the marriage within two days. Shashi tells Sahil he is now getting married, and wasn’t ready to accept any argument from Sahil.
