Meanwhile, Ashish meets his friends and boasts on having good time with Megha. He cooks up a story and speaks of seeing the paradise (Jannat) and they hold hands first and then she didn’t stop. Shalini Aunty hears it and soon goes to Megha’s home and takes away her daughter Reema from there. She informs Geeta that Megha went with Gupta’s son Ashish and had much enjoyment which is a taunt, and also people are making fun of them. Megha tries that nothing such have happened and doesn’t know why Shalini Aunty is behaving in such a way. She then comes to meet Ashish who is at a party scene and informs why he is lying since knows nothing of any sort happened yesterday.
He cooks the story more and informs that she was showing him magazine’s phots with her short clothes. She asks him to tell nothing has happened between them. He drinks more and continues to speak to all in loud voice there on having lots of fun and drinks. Also, he makes a taunt “nothing happened between them” and asks whether she is happy now. His friends also repeat the same words. Megha comes back home and Megha’s dad receives a call and the guy wants to know how to come close to her. He gets agitated and threatens the guy/caller of police complaint. Soon, he breaks down and speaks of people poking fun and also the family’s respect built in many years got shaken and he doesn’t keep positivity and hope. Megha hears that conversation and recollects Shalini Aunty’s taunts, Ashish’s accusation and taunts to demean her, and also her father’s words of respect going away. She tears the magazine cover with her photos and cries more. Next day, her dad speaks that the talk has spread the entire city and there is only one solution and she needs to go back to Delhi and settle there permanently. She speaks of not going there in this situation and not leave her parents alone. She wants to do fightback and prove herself right. Shalini aunty comes to her home and informs that Ashish is getting married with his father’s business partner’s daughter in some days. She also reminds that girls need to be careful and the boys doesn’t care much.
After coming to know of Ashish’s marraige, she reaches his wedding place and asks how come he is going to marry someone else though the city knows about their relationship and makes a taunt. Ashish informs that she is speaking nonsense. She reminds him on what he said just while back that they hold hands and shared nice moments and have much fun. She reminds that he forgot to tell about his engagement to her that time. It was just 10 days back and makes another taunt that they went on a hot date. He speaks that nothing has happened and blurts out the truth of trying to touch her which resulted in her going away. She informs all whether everyone believes her now and speaks of going with him then as she regarded him as a friend. She admits on wearing short clothes for magazine and modeling but doesn’t want people to judge her. She speaks of not having any shame since she does hardwork and honest in her work. Megha points out that boys like him needs to be corrected who thinks girls in a bad way. She reminds them to forget the assumption on models and instead should know the truth. Megha’s mum Geeta calls her as the pride of her home, and calls her as the Tigress. She hugs her mum with emotions and gets teary eyed. Soon, Megha leaves from there with family and thus said Halla Bol to show that girls are not lesser than anyone [Ladkiyan kam Nahi]. The story ends on that note.
Karan speaks that modeling and acting is done by dedication and its like other profession with the person associated with it is also a person and an individual. He suggests passing comments and personal judgements on someone and calling them as characterless is wrong.
