Rana ji and Gayatri were coming from the corridor. Sulakshna was coming from the front and covers half her face and head watching Rana ji. He asks why she covered her face. She says she thought she is the Rani and should behave like this. He says she never did so before. She says she doesn’t know what she did before, she waited for him whole day but he has time for his friend’s wife and not his own.
Rana ji stops her saying she can’t go without listening to him, but SUlakshna says she isn’t a maid but wife. She waited to speak to him, not she isn’t in a mood so he must wait now. Gayatri also leaves thinking he is just trying not to break her heart.
Laksh, Kunwar ji and Kokilla ran after Swarna. Swarna comes to Cheetah for help. She asks him to help. He asks for the price. She says she will give him any amount of money he will ask for, even more than that. He hides Swarna. Laksh asks Cheetah if he has seen a girl running from here. Cheetah says girls run after him all day long, which one had he left. He misguides Luksh about the direction of the girl. Swarna thanks him for hiding her. He says that he can take her to a faraway place, she must think before that she will have to pay. Swarna says she will give him whatever he would ask for. He drives the tractor.
Rana ji was in his study, Bari Raani maa comes to him. She says that when two hands meet, a fist is made. If he has taken any decision about the crown ceremony of Sulakshna. Rana ji says he needs sometime. Bari Rani maa says time never stops for a price who awaits time, if he delays it now it will be late. Gayatri comes there. Bari Rani maa says she won’t leave him alone. Rana ji says this isn’t easy for him, he had given Gayatri the place of his wife and Rani. But he can’t even do injustice with Sulakshna. He turns to see Gayatri standing there. Bari Raani maa goes to Gayatri and says she apologizes, as she has made her life complex; but what she could do as she couldn’t hurt her. But she could also not do unjust to Sulakshna as well. She says that she knows what it feels to be a second wife, she was also the second wife of Baray Rana ji. She could never get love from him, as love is only for the first wife. Gayatri holds Bari Rani maa’s hands saying elder’s hands are just to be kept on head for blessings. She says that her luck is always an enemy of her. She goes to Rana ji and says she wants to make things easy for him, she never married him to be a Rani. If it gets solved, he can do the crowning of Sulakshna. She says she has taken a decision for a Raja but for a husband, he must take the decision himself.
At the stage, Sulakshna utters ‘wow’ watching a crown. Everyone is shocked. Raaj Mata says she was a princess already, who so excited. Bari Raani Maa qualifies that her memory is really weak. Gayatri watches this all. Rana ji thinks about Gayatri. He puts the crown on Sulakshna’s head. She bends to touch his feet. Rana ji watches Gayatri. The photographer comes to take photo with Rana ji, Sulakshna holds his arm to give a pose. Gayatri is hurt. Rana ji watches Gayatri only. Gayatri begins cry. Rana ji was about to leave, Wilkinsons says that finally Amirkot got its princess, the one who is eligible to be there, else they had made anyone a princess. Raaj Mata nods at Rana ji to get calm. Wilkinson’s asks Rana ji to say something about Sulakshna. Raaj Mata whispers that people are watching, he must say something. Rana ji says Sulakshna has returned to life for Amirkot’s people, she has all the abilities to be a Princess. She has got English education and hasn’t forgotten her principles. He looks at Gayatri who thinks that she will go away from his life.
In the room, Jhumki removes the crown and appreciates her acting saying she became Rani without any mistake. The veiled lady gets her a new mask. She removes the burnt one and changes it.
Rana ji thinks in the corridor that he must tell Sulakshna that though she has become the queen now, there will always be Gayatri in his heart.
Jhumki changed her mask.
Gayatri was crying in her room, Rana ji comes from behind. He notices Gayatri crying and leaves.
The veiled lady goes away at once hearing the footsteps of Rana ji. Sulakshna stands up. Rana ji asks why she didn’t cover her head. She says she thought that he has forgotten her face, so she will keep her face in front of him always. Rana ji played with his ring, she asks why he is worried. Rana ji sits down and says he has something important to tell him. She says that she is his wife, his Sona, who will he speak his mind to if not her. Rana ji drops his rings, Sulakshna spots the mask on the floor and is worried.
