Once there was a king Monday 27 December 2021 update: Kokilla shouts that her feet are burning. Gayatri watches Raaj Mata’s hands burn and caresses them for which she smiles. Maa and Bhabis wonder how turmeric can burn the feet. Raaj Mata says that this is because of plannings of enemy. Bhabi says that the turmeric has ruined, this is a bad omen. Gayatri says there can be no bad omen in their weedding.
Kunwar ji tells the killer to hang this man now. Rana ji says he will decide this and it is his order that he must leave Amirkot. Kunwar ji asks what if he returns. Rana ji says this man will not spare the life of the one he was working with, Kunwar asks what if he attacks Rana ji again. Rana ji says now he has kept an eye on the one this man was working for. They leave.
Maa says that the haldi of her daughter will take place today and brings the turmeric to Raaj Mata. Kokilla cries, Bhabis ask why she is crying. Kokilla says she is really feeling bad as Gayatri will leave her parent’s house tomorrow.
Gayatri reads a letter that was there on the floor, it read that this letter is a beginning of bad omens, if this wedding keeps on going she will have to watch many such ones.
Kokilla shows her burnt foot to Kunwar ji and cries. She tells Kunwar that the turmeric she mixed fell on her own self. Kunwar tells her that even the plan he laid has failed and Rana ji suspects him now. Kokilla says that this time she will win, she has dug a hole and has thrown Gayatri into it even. She whispers to him that Gayatri has even read the letter.
At Seth ji’s home, the ladies prepared henna leaves. Gayatri read the letter inside. Maa prayed that there is no bad omen now. Bhabis talk about the attempt of murder on Rana ji yesterday and even today. Gayatri comes there and asks another attempt getting worried. Maa tells Gayatri nothing happened, but Bhabis talk that there were arms in the hole implanted to kill him. Maa tells Gayatri not to worry, Rana ji is fine. Gayatri reads the letter again and is worried. The letter further read that she must come to Kaali Maa’s temple to know more about it. Gayatri determines to go there.
Kunwar asks Kokilla if she thinks her plan would work. Kokilla says not only on the temple but in the way there something will happen to Gayatri that she will never forget. Both spouses celebrate.
Maa asks about Gayatri from everyone, as Gayatri leaves the house. She arrives at the temple alone in dark and prays that if there is some bad eye on her Rana ji, it must be removes. Kokilla calls from behind that this wouldn’t be as easy. She looks behind to see an old lady in torn clothes. Gayatri asks who is she. Kokilla says that she is a mirror to show her the truth that if she marries Rana ji, it will be a bad symbol for Rana ji’s life. If this wedding takes place, the trumpets of this wedding will be beaten by Yamraj. Gayatri tells her to stop it, there will be no bad omen. Our fates are written by what we do in life, not by the lines in our hands. She says she loves Rana ji utterly, when there is unbreakable belief in love. She will know soon that there is nothing better than unbreakable belief and nothing strong than love. She forwards towards Kokilla to bring her truth to the world. Kokilla pushes Gayatri back and leaves. Gayatri notices some men running to get her as Kokilla calls them. Gayatri runs in the opposite direction, the men follows her. On the dark road, Gayatri fell down and the men gets her. She pushes some of the men and runs again, but loses her breath and fell on the ground. A cart was coming towards her from the front. The men stop at the distance while Gayatri runs towards the cart and knocks at the door calling for help. The doors of the cart opens, when Gayatri was about to faint. One of the man had brought his knife out. The dog appears from inside the door of the cart and runs towards the men, the men run away saving their lives. Feet of a lady appears from the cart, it was Bari Rani Maa. Gayatri who was about to faint hugs her, she keeps her hand on Gayatri’s head.Bari Raani Maa says that they must take this girl to palace.
Maa looks for Gayatri and is worried about her. Seth ji tells her that Gayatri is not a child. Maa says she is young and what if this news gets to Palace. Seth ji is speechless.
In the palace, Yashoda tells Raaj Mata that all the foreign gifts are ready for the bride. Bari Raani Maa calls that her mother in law is also foreigner. Everyone is shocked to see Bari Raani maa standing on the door. Raaj Mata tells everyone to leave. Bari Rani maa says that the traditions of the royal palce have changed, the daughter in laws didn’t use to meet their mother in laws like this. Raaj Mata bends to touch the feet of Bari Raani maa. Bari Raani maa asks if she has a spinal problem that she can’t touch her feet. Raaj Mata says she knows that she doesn’t like to bend. Bari Raani maa asks Raaj Mata to bend for the tradition of the palace. Kokilla touches the feet of Bari Raani maa. Kunwar calls her maa, she corrects him to be Bari Raani Maa. Kunwar complains if she has forgotten him. Kokilla complains she even doesn’t remember her grandson Lakshraaj, she takes more care about her step son. Bari Raani Maa says she doesn’t take relations as steps but only counts them on eligibility. She complains that they took a great decision about marrying Indravadhan and didn’t ask her. Raaj mata says she was about to tell her. Bari Raani maa complains if she thought about telling her after the wedding. Raaj Mata says that she knew her answer would be no. Bari Raani Maa says that even today her answer is no, a normal girl can never be married in the royal family. Raaj Mata says she isnt a normal girl, she belongs to the richest family. They have gold equal to all the gold in Amirkot. A guard announces that her order has been abided by. Bari Raani maa says that she found a girl on road, she was conciousless so she brought her here. The girl must not belong to a respectable family. Raaj Mata tells Bari Raani Maa to meet Gayatri once, she is a good natured girl. The servants bring Gayatri inside, Kokilla asks Raaj Mata to see who the girl actually is. Bari Raani Maa asks Kokilla to take this girl in the room, she questions Raaj Mata if this is the girl who her Indhravadhan will marry, who wanders on the streets at night. She firmly says that she is the Bari Raani Maa of Amirkot, and she says that this wedding will not take place.
Kokilla follows Gayatri being carried by maids to room. She is curt that Gayatri always gets saved. She says that this injury will get better but the next injury will not get healed. She asks the guard to open the door, the guard says that this is the order of Rana ji not to open this door. Kokilla tells him to open the door as this is the new princess to be, and if he doesn’t open the door for her then he will lose his life. He opens the door, Kokilla sends the guard away. The maids lay Gayatri on the bed, Kokilla enters the room. She smiles and thinks that when she has come into this closed room, she will get all the truth by herself. She dances in elation, and says that she is crazy in love of Rani ji, she will now knows she isnt Radha but Meera who can be Rana ji’s but Rana ji can’t be hers. Rana ji always loved Surakshna, she says that Gayatri will have to say no to this marriage. She will leave a few marks that will tell her how much Rana ji loves Surakshna. She looks into the drawers to find something, then gets a paper and is awed to read the love letter. It said that he will not marry anyone other than Surakshna, Kokilla keeps the letter on the table and leaves the room, singing.
Bari Raani maa says to Raaj Mata that she is different from her in all the matters. She hasn’t forgotten her traditions and Raaj Mata follows the British. She says they are doing the same mistake, she also was wrong in choosing a daughter in law. Raaj Mata says that it is also about luck that is different, she herself wasn’t lucky in getting a mother in law but her daughter in law will be. Bari Raani maa says luck is determined by the decisions, a girl who wanders around at night she can’t be given a big responsibility of the palace. Raaj Mata says that she will get sensible with responsibility, engagement has been done and it will not break. Bari Raani Maa says she is determined not to let this wedding take place.
