Once there was a King 14 February 2022: Once there was a King update Monday 14th February 2022 Rana ji says that they all know he has decided to go abroad. Gayatri’s death has broken him, he can no longer live in Amirkot. He announces that he is leaving behind him Kunwar Chandarvadhan as the Rana to Amirkot. Kunwar ji stops Rana ji saying he feels lucky that he has been considered eligible to sit on this throne, but someone else is even more eligible for this throne. Rana ji asks who can be more eligible for this post. Kunwar ji points at Bari Rani maa.
Bari Rani maa is happy at her name, she remembers that she told Kunwar ji that in tomorrow’s crowning the world would see a sacrifice that none had seen before. She says he will give the sacrifice, he will leave this throne and crown for her. Kunwar ji was shocked, she asks why he is so shocked. Kunwar ji asks how she can get the throne. Bari Rani maa says if she can fight for the throne, she can win it too. She takes Kunwar Ji’s hand, he stands up and Bari Rani maa herself sit on the chair saying she won the game, she will take the seat. She says Kunwar ji will become Raja but after her, then Laksh and then his son if it comes. Kunwar ji says but… Bari Rani maa says if he doesn’t give this sacrifice, she will get no time to change Rana ji’s decision. Raaj Mata asks how a woman can sit on the throne.
Cheetah brings food for Swarna, she was crying. He says he understands her pain. Swarna says now she understands this palace is so big and she is so alone, she only had one friend. She calls Gayatri, crying. Cheetah tells her to get hold of herself, Swarna hugs him and cries for Gayatri.
Kunwar Ji says to Raaj Mata that the past is evident that women have taken thrones and managed them well. In British times as well, and also in their own country, a lot of women have done big things for countries. Bari Rani maa denies taking the responsibility, Rana Ji says Kunwar Ji is right, no one can take care of the throne as she can. He tells her to come and sit on the throne, he owes her his life. Bari Rani maa says she can no longer deny him. She goes to sit on the chair, Rana Ji calls the crown and puts it on Bari Rani maa’ head. Mr. Wilkinson congratulates and accepts Bari Rani maa as the princess of Amirkot. Rana ji calls Bari Rani maa as Maharani and asks her the permission to leave. Bari Rani maa says this responsibility is so tough, she has to separate her breathes from herself. She stands up saying she understands his pain, she won’t stop him. She can give her life for this throne, and she can take it as well. She hugs Rana Ji who looks around at the palace for one last time, then leaves the palace.
Bari Rani maa keeps a hand on Raaj Mata’s shoulder, she asks if she has seen that her son and daughter-in-law have left, she must also leave this palace. When there is a storm, leaves have to whither. She was never more than dried leave for her. Raaj Mata leaves. Bari Rani maa comes to sit on the throne of the palace. Mr. Wilkinsons hands her the sword of honor. Bari Rani maa says that Amirkot’s throne got its true heir today, she calls to begin the celebrations.
Laksh holds Swarna’s hand and drags her closer, saying she must have forgotten she is his wife and must remain near to him. Swarna asks really, she thought he wanted to stay away from her, he calls her near whenever he wants to but let her go away whenever he isn’t in a mood. He considered her a toy only but she has a tongue in her mouth. She jerks his hand away and leaves. Kunwar Ji stops Laksh from going behind her saying once Swarna gives them the heir, he must do whatever he wants to with her.
A dancing group enters the palace dancing. They all wore masks and performs. A girl from them comes to take Bari Rani maa along with her. Bari Rani maa goes with her, she swirls her fast in the center, then gives her a tight jerk. As she removes the mask off her face, Bari Rani maa is shocked to see Gayatri. Bari Rani maa remembers Gayatri’s coronation. Gayatri smiles at her, wears her mask again, and vanishes in between the group of dancers. Bari Rani maa runs to Kunwar ji and tells him that she saw Gayatri. She was afraid. Kunwar Ji says to Bari Rani maa when a person gets happy more than her expectations, this happens. Gayatri is dead. Bari Rani maa watches Gayatri standing behind a pillar in the hall.
