This shocks Acchari and she demands an explanation from Aakarsh. Aakarsh reveals his past to Acchari. In the flashback, it is revealed that Aakarsh and Aditi were married. Aditi is an adamant woman who is also a "clean freak". She doesn't want to get closer to Aakarsh, this sparks differences between the couple and eventually Aditi leaves him.

However, Aditi later realizes her mistake and wants to get back together. This leaves Aakarsh in a fix. He has to decide between Acchari and Aditi. However, Aakarsh decides to surprise Aditi by taking her to a poet's house. But on their way Aditi meets with an accident. Acchari's mother confronts her to go away from the couple as Acchari's father too cheated her mother.
