She stops him and asks him to keep his meagre statistics and asks him to come out of this mindset. She speaks of staying for 2 years and even they have become serious and used to pamper her by calling Malo.. instead of Mahalaxmi and now all of a sudden he forgot everything and cannot say goodbye to her. She speaks of becoming sentimental and suggests that she will convince his mother. Preet speaks of ignoring her for herself and not for his own. She doesn’t want to listen to him and wants him to see in her eyes and he has to say that he doesn’t love her. Preet looks at her eyes and shouts that he doesn’t love her and says goodbye and starts to leave. Mahalaxmi cries at that development and Preet also goes from there with a heavy heart.

He informs that they have not seen their feelings and love and they only saw the difference in their communities. He asks what’s wrong they did and calls love as the most innocent emotion in the world. He informs his mother that she loves her Dhaba a lot and wants her to take care of it and speaks of not coming again but informs her that he will take care of his sisters marriage responsibilities.
