She says Anupama will surely clear the audition as there is no better dancer than her in whole Ahmedabad. Hasmukh says Anupama is blessed with Lord Natraj himself. Dolly says there is no such dance audition, that Anupama can’t clear. Leela asks Anupama if she would be able to give an audition.

Vanraj reads Ritika’s (Vanraj’s first and college girlfriend) message, informing him that she is coming to India and asks Vanraj to meet her tomorrow.
Vanraj takes out his college photographs and recalls how Ritika broke up with him and left him for her bright future in the USA.
