As he turns to go, after saying why’s she doing this, and whats the use of doing this, rajji asks why does he feel that she’s having expecttaions, and she knows whats bani’s place in his heart, and she doesnt want to overpower it, and that she only feels what comes from the heart. she says that even if for the society, they are a couple, and hence there are certain obligations. Rajji tells soham that she knows that he would never give her the respect and status of his wife, but cant they be friends, if not husband-wife. She asks if she isnt even worthy to be her friend. Soham is tensed and speechless. Rajji moves past him, and soham calls her from behind, and tells her that she’s right, in assuming that they can be friends and thats the relation that they shall share. he says that would start a new relation, forgetting the past, that of friendship. she looks back happily at him, and thanks him for this. he says that he’s veru hungry, and invites her to come along and eat. rajji is all smiles, as she sees him.
