Eventually Rohit leaves and Tamanna settles back into her normal daily routine....
When her sister, Tanya (Kamalinee Mukherjee), has an accident she decides to give her own blood to replace the blood used to save Tanya. However her doctor, Dr. Raisingh (Revathi), tells her that she has been tested positive for HIV. Tamanna's world turns upside down and she desperately tries to get into contact with Rohit but in vain.
