Maya agrees to do the photo-shoot. Rudra asks her how she changed her mind since she didn’t like to get clicked before. Maya says that she didn’t have him before and hugs him telling him that she isn’t scared of the world anymore now. Rudra plants a kiss on her forehead. MJ glares at them and then says that they should click the pictures then.
Photographer starts clicking Rudra, Maya, Antara and MJ’s pictures and asks MJ to stand between Maya and Antara. Rudra gets a call and goes away. Also Antara leaves. Maya and MJ are left alone and Maya feels a bit scared. MJ whispers to Maya that he is aware of her fear. Photographer asks Maya to stand close to MJ. The latter puts his hand on her shoulder. Maya feels uncomfortable and recalls him touching her in the past. Rudra comes and Maya immediately hugs him.
After the photo-shoot is done, Maya rushes in her room and washes herself with hot water to wipe off MJ’s touch. She comes out calling out Rudra’s name and he comes suddenly scaring her. They share a laughter when Rudra jokes about Maya making a room in the bathroom. Rudra adores Maya when she laughs and says that her laughter will take his life one day.
