Once there was a King 31 January 2022: Once there was a King update Monday 31st January 2022 Jhumki is shocked to see that the veiled lady was Bari Rani maa. Bari Rani maa recalls everything she had done from replacing Gayatri’s dress. Jhumki asks why she did this all. Bari Rani maa tells from the bones that she was the second wife of Rana ji’s grandfather. It is just said that in Royal families both wives are given the same place, but it is all wrong. She gave a son to grandfather before his first wife but he couldn’t get the seat only because she is the second wife. She then decided that if Kali maa has forgotten to write crown in her fate, she will write it herself. She won’t let the heir come into this world after Indhravadhan. She let him and Sulakshna get away from each other, but his life didn’t stop there.
He married Gayatri, it is Gayatri’s fate that neither could this marriage stop nor her becoming Rani. She now, she has brought Sulakshna back to Rana ji’s life which was Rana ji’s, first love. Jhumki says that she has brought Sulakshna back not Bari Rani maa, had she not been here she couldn’t do anything.
Bari Raani maa holds Jhumki’s hand and slaps her hard. She says she is called with respect. The real game is because of that mask, not her, if she doesn’t stay by their side she won’t be able to get out of this palace. Jhumki leaves.
Bari Rani maa says to Kokilla that they have to keep Gayatri and Rana ji apart, so that there is no heir. Kunwar Ji tells her that now Swarna will give them an heir and they will get him brought up in some other way. Bari Rani maa curses Kunwar’s child Laksh, she says this time no one can stop her from becoming a Raaj Mata. In the room, Jhumki removes her mask. Gayatri gets milk for Jhumki thinking that she hurt Sulakshna. She knocks at the door, when Jhumki can’t put on the mask she lay in the bed with a blanket on. Gayatri comes inside, she says to Sulakshna that she is sorry, she doesn’t want her crown at all. When Sulakshna doesn’t get up, Gayatri tells her to take a rest. She drops a card, holds it up, and leaves the room but opens the heater panes with the rub of her arm. Jhumki locks the door, she thinks that everyone here is after her, she won’t always wear the mask of Sulakshna. The mask burns up during the night. In the morning, Jhumki wakes up with the heat in the room, she recalls the corn that she misses. She looks for the mask that was burnt altogether. Gayatri walked towards the room with a tray.
Jhumki is shocked to see the burnt mask. Gayatri knocks at the door, calls Sulakshna and wonders if she is fine. Jhumki turns around and covers her burnt side with her Pallu. She had her back towards Gayatri, she says curtly that she shouldn’t say now that she has come for forgiveness again. Gayatri asks her to eat something, she hasn’t eaten anything since last evening. Jhumki asks her not to do any more drama. Gayatri comes to her front explaining there is nothing like that. She turns away at once, Gayatri comes to her front again and asks what happened on her face. Sulakshna shouts at her to leave at once, Gayatri goes out of the room. Jhumki locks the door at once and says Gayatri is so after her. She thinks it is time to do something that Gayatri doesn’t open her mouth in front of Rana ji.
Rana ji stood with Bari Rani maa, he says he doesn’t want to hurt anyone but this hurts the three of them. Bari Rani maa says she didn’t know he would love Gayatri so soon, she always thought that he loves Sulakshna. Rana ji says the trouble is he doesn’t feel anything even being with Sulakshna, it seems she is some stranger. Bari Rani maa says the problem is with him, he never thought about living with two wives. Rana ji asks what he must do, he can’t let Gayatri go because she also has no mistake. A servant comes and says that Sulakshna wants to leave the palace. Both get worried at once.
In the hall, Sulakshna denies taking any help. Rana ji calls her, Sulakshna says she is leaving. Gayatri says she won’t let her go. Sulakshna says she isn’t needed in the palace, what will she do by staying. Gayatri says she is the Rani of Amirkot and love of Rana ji. She can’t go leaving the palace. Sulakshna bends down, her arm had been bandaged. Bari rani maa says she shouldn’t have come down with her luggage in her own hands, she should have called a servant. Sulakshna says that Bari Raani maa had said that this is her house, but it seems she has brought some curt memories for everyone. Rana ji doesn’t care if she lives or not. Gayatri says it isn’t Rana ji’s mistake, he lived with her memories but he had to marry her. Sulakshna was his first love and always will be, she has understood this too. She wipes her tears and says she is the real culprit that she came between them. She asks Sulakshna to give any punishment to her. Sulakshna turns and says she will be a maid of Rani Sulakshna from right now. Everyone including Gayatri is shocked to hear this.
