Ahil points out two stars, as Dilshad and Rashid, sanam’s pareents, and she sys in surprise, that she too sees these two stars everyday.Ahil and sanam look at the moonlit sky, while she is tensed where shaad went. just then, ahil spots a shooting star, and then points it to her excitedly, and holds her hand instinctively, asking her to make a wish. She wishes that true love is rare to find, and asks the lord not to keep him away from his true love for long, and that she wishes he finds his sanam soon. He opens his eyes, to find sanam praying with closed eyes. he prays that sanam brought happiness in his life, and nothing matters to him now more than her happiness, and hopes his prayers are accepted. Shaad comes back and notices them together hand in hand and is upset. They both open their eyes, and then she notices their hands together, and takes it off. She says that she wanted to see this bful moment with her husband. She says that she wanted to see this with shaad, and Shaad smiles. Ahil thinks that she is actually seeing this with his wife. he leaves from there without turning, and hence doesnt see shaad standing behind them. Shaad thinks that the reason he is so insecure about jannat is because he has himself formed the relation on a lie, and hence his insecurities reflect in the relation. he decides that he would have to tell jannat the truth. He progresses towards her, while recapitulating how his relation with jannat was. he takes the taveez in his hand as he comes in closer.

Just then, the new bride arrives there and comes face to face with ahil, who is shocked. They both are oblivious that sanam is standing behind them only at a distance. She asks him whats he doing here. he says that he came just like that. she taunts that she doesnt believe it, as habit would have it, even though she wants to believe. He says that its her problem entirely. Ahil turns away and leaves, with the new bride in tow.

Shaad taps on her shoulder. She reprimands shaad for having missed the bful view, of shooting stars, and that he should have been there, and frustratedly asks where was he. he sternly tells her that there’s something that he wants to say. She hears intently, saying that they can talk, but first they should inform ahil, as he is searching for him, and she wasnt even polite. she moves ahead. he apologises to himself for not being able to bare out his heart today and that he shall do it the first thing tomorrow. The screen freezes on his face.
