Ganapati pooja starts at Chavan nivas. Panditji asks Bhavani who will perform pooja. Bhavani says Virat and Sai will perform Ganapati Bappa’s uttar aarti. Pakhi stands jealous. Vaishali asks Pakhi when she and Samrat perform beginning aarti, why are they not performing ending aarti. Pakhi says Sai is habituated to snatch her right, she purposefully got discharged from hospital today to get pooja rights. Vaishali says this is wrong. Pakhi says she needs to do something to get back her right. She brings chair for Sai and asks her to sit as she must be feel weak. Shivani tells Mohit that something is wrong, there is something cooking in Pakhi’s mind or else why would Pakhi worry for Sai.
Mohit says she is right. Sai thanks Pakhi for thinking about her and asks her to take back chair as she can stand and doesn’t want to insult Baa and elders by sitting during pooja. Vaishali says instead of thinking so much, they should get pooja by Pakhi and Samrat as Sai is weak and shouldn’t strain herself. Bhavani says she can understand her concern as a mother who wants her daughter to get more attention, but this is their family issue and they will decide who will perform pooja.
Ashwini says Sai defeated death and won life with Bappa’s blessings and hence she should perform aarti. Samrat says Ashwini is right, they consider everyone as equal in this house. Omkar murmurs that they don’t consider everyone equal in this house. Panditji asks Sai and Virat to come forward and perform pooja.
After pooja, Chavan family bring Ganpati idol out singing and dancing for visarjan. Nind asks Virat to seek whatever he wants in Bappa’s ears. Omkar taunts to seek some intelligence for his wife. Everyone frown hearing that. Sai says he is right, she is becoming a doctor and hence requires a lot of intelligence. Everyone smile hearing Sai’s answer.
Virat prays Bappa to fulfill Sai’s demands and if Sai wants to go away from him, he should fulfill her demand without hurting her as he cannot see her in trouble. Sai prays Bappa to fulfill Virat’s demand as she got a caring aayi/Ashwini because of Virat, he should fulfill Virat’s request if he wants to separate from her. Pakhi prays Bappa to make Virat realize that she is a best choice for him and he made a mistake by choosing Sai. Samrat prays Bappa to not prove his decision of giving his marriage second change and make it successful for his family’s sake. Virat then lifts idol and immerses in water, performing visarjan.
Chavan family then serves prasad to brahmins. Pakhi brings prasad. Bhavani takes prasad from her and tells Sai that according to family rule, all bahus prepare prasad, but since Sai didn’t help this year, she should serve prasad. Sai serves prasad to brahmins and takes their blessings.
Pakhi burns in jealousy and tries to leave. Vaishali stops her and says he can understand her feelings, Sai took her right. Pakhi says Sai has become everyone’s favorite as she is Virat’s wife, its surprising to know that Ashwini is keeping Virat and Sai in separate rooms. Vaishali asks how can a husband and wife stay separately. Pakhi says they can when there isn’t a husband and wife’s relationship between them.
Virat returns to his room and freshens up. He imagines Sai smiling behind him and thinks he is missing Sai so much that he is imagining her everywhere. He then tries to read book. Sai walks to him and waves. He thinks he is day dreaming.
Sai asks why he is behaving weirdly with her. He asks not to a bore him as he knows she is not here. Sai asks what happened to him. He says he is imagining him like a real person and asks her to leave before he opens his eyes. She pulls his nose. He asks if she is real. She says yes, why is he behaving weird, she knows he cannot tolerate her. He says he didn’t mean that. She thinks he doesn’t want her to be in his room. He asks what is she doing here. She says she will go if he has a problem with her. He says she can visit this room whenever she wants to, he meant she should rest after straining herself whole day. She says she feels happy in his room. He thinks if aayi changed her decision and permitted Sai to come here. Sai asks where is he lost. He makes her sit and says he wasn’t lost but was thinking if she will stay again in his room.
Precap: Sai tells Virat that Bhavani asked them to stay in separate rooms, but husband and wife stay in same room as per his bestfriend Pakhi. She asks how are they related now. Pakhi sprinkles pooja water on them uninformed.
