I Do 24 August 2022: Ahil gets the new bride’s phone, whi calls him insistently, and he cancels it, and throws the phone away, in the hills of dharamshala. the taxi fella with him, asks why he threw the expensive phone, and ahil responds that it wasnt a phone but someone’s life trapped in it, and he didnt need it. The punjabi fella tells him that he knows the perfect place to find rest and peace of mind, and ahil has come to the exact right place. Meanwhile, the new bride thinks that she wont lament and ahil is mistaken if he thinks that she shall, and instead she shall spend away all of ahil’s money, while he is on the run from her. she then calls saif, and lures him seductively into coming over, for a dinner outside. saif is reluctant andf angry at her, but tensedly complies nevertheless.

Saif arrives and finds a gift, an expensive Rolex watch, along with a letter, saying that these gifts shall trail his way to her room, and she wants him to discard one piece of clothing with every gift, so that when he meets her, he is just the way she wants him to be. He finds a limited edition French perfume next, then a nother gift. when he reaches her, he is in a vest, and romanticises her with poetry. she says that she has one last gift and asks him to open his hand. She presents him with a key of his new imported car. He hugs her overwhelmingly. she then closes the door, and asks if he remembers the rules of the game. She then comes close to him, and throws him on the bed, as they eye each other luringly. Just then, the doorbell rings, and when it does insistently, she begins to leave, saying that she would be back in a minute. She leaves. He eyes her evilly.

Shaad and sanam check in a hotel, and as they proceed towards their room, ahil checkes in just then, along with the punjabi fella. he looks around, and he too is given the same traditional drink, that sanam and shaad were offered. Obliviously, he places his glass right next to sanam’s glass. He is about to fill the details, when he thinks that he cant give his real name. he then fills out a fake name, Sahil Qureshi. He takes a sip, from sanam’s glass accidentally. Its pointed out that its someone else’s glass. The punjabi fella says that its a ritual, that if the same two people drink from one glass, they get married. But ahil wards it away saying that he already is, and the manager says that the lady too was. he then asks the attendant, to take ahil to the adjacent room. He pauses for a moment, and then walks in, just when sanam too walks out instinctively. She too eyes the adjacent ahil’s room, and is curious to see who is there, but isnt able to see him, as the attendant stands in the way. Then before she can see further, shaad comes and asks why is she standing outside, and then takes her in. Ahil meanwhile closes the door. she tells shaad that she feels her past is around her in the present, and that someone close to her is very near to her. Ghe gets tensed, and then says that when one is restless for their loved ones, they start hallucinating, but they have to be real, and the reality is him. he asks her not to think much. She says that she is okay, and then expreses the request to go to the market. he asks her to change and then they shall leave. She complies, but is still tensed.
