She smiles that he doesn’t know how to wear Dhoti. He says she is saying as if she knows how to put it on. She asks him for it, unwraps it from his body and puts it on in the right way. Bhabi watches this and laughs outside the door, Rana ji also smiles. Gayatri gives the shirt to Rana ji and asks him to wear it. He tells him to put it on as well, she keeps the shirt on his shoulder and leaves. He smiles.
