Once There was a King 22 May 2022: In the room, Bindu was restlessly waiting in the room. Raja comes in. Bindu was worried and says she packed all their bags. Raja says he has a lot in Amirkot, she shouldn’t worry; anything belonging to him would go with him.
In the room, Rani wears the necklace with the knife. Raja enters the room. Rani wonders if he is still in Amirkot and forbids him to come forward. Raja stuffs her mouth with a sticker, and carries her away from the palace; not ready to let her go with anyone else. They spot Iqbal coming to the palace. Raja drives away. Iqbal turns to see a car leaving the palace. He enters the room and watches the room messed up. Raaj Mata comes in and was worried looking around, Iqbal says he knows well where Rani is and furiously roars Angat!
Rani was still struggling in the car while Raja drove. She was at once successful in getting rid of her hands from robe, pulls the breaks of car and run out. Raja follows her, and holds her in a high speed run. Both fell over, Rani above Raja. Iqbal’s men bring Bindu outside, Iqbal clutches her mouth saying she would tell about Rani’s whereabouts. Bindu says Angat must have gone to bring tickets, she is unaware of Angat. She is unaware of Rani or Angat. Iqbal finds broken bangles in the doorway and recalls a car leaving the palace rashly. He leaves with Bindu instructing his men to keep an eye over Raaj Mata.
Rani gets up, while Raja clutches her. She wonders if he has gone crazy. Raja says he still thinks she loves him and not Iqbal, the way she was in his arms last night; how should he accept she loves Iqbal. Rani insists she still loves Iqbal. Raja wonders where her love was last night. Rani asks what he wants to hear, that she would have to live as a criminal’s wife all her life, in poverty and wandering around. She can see a good future with Iqbal, who will keep her in grace all his life. Raja shouts that she only belongs to him, he won’t let her be someone else’s. Rani looks away. Raja demands to look into his eyes, and prove she doesn’t love him. Rani joins her hands to Raja, requesting him to leave her life. She spots Iqbal’s car and was frightened at once, insisting on Raja to go away. Raja demands her to share the truth with her. Rani trembled in fright, she thinks if she tells him about the truth he would never leave her. She takes him aside, and hits the back of his head.
Raja faints at once. Rani holds his face saying she would always love him, she is going away just to return to him. The next time they meet, she won’t hide her love again. She gets into the car. Iqbal stops the car, just in front of Rani’s. He reminds about forbidding her to get out of the room. Rani says she wanted to go to the temple before getting married. Iqbal demands her about the bangles. Rani explains she fell off in the palace. Iqbal apologizes Bindu, and asks her to come in Rani’s car while he would take Rani in his. They drive away.
Raja comes out of bushes, with his head banging badly. Rani tries not to look at him in back view mirror. Iqbal says for a while he thought Angat kidnapped her away. He stops the car with a jerk. Rani spots the gun lying on the dashboard. Iqbal silently drives away.
Bindu runs to Raja’s help. Rani asks her about Rani. Bindu tells him she went with Iqbal. Raja hurries towards the car to go to palace. Bindu clutches the keys of car.
In the palace, Raaj Mata was restless when Iqbal and Rani come in. She hugs Rani. Iqbal asks Raaj Mata to have inquired Rani where she went, she could have got an interesting answer. Rani says she has a single reply, to marry at once. Iqbal taunts saying since her bangles were broken today, and it’s a bad omen for her; he won’t marry her today. He demands her to go and become that old Rani again. Raaj Mata looks quizzically.
Raja tells Bindu he has seen the old Rani again, he can’t let anyone be his way now. Bindu loosens her grip over the keys, Raja pushes her aside and drives towards the palace. Bindu was left crying.
Rani comes downstairs, Iqbal appreciates the old Rani and the same old hatred in her eyes. He points a gun toward her, Rani assures him she never betrayed him. Iqbal pointed the gun towards himself, ready to give his life for her. He pulls the trigger four times, but nothing happened. He says only a single chance left. He then asks if she loved him for a second, he would forgive her. He claps in a rage about Rani’s game, his love blinded him so badly he couldn’t recognize Raja in front of him. Raja enters the palace then. Iqbal smirks.
