Momina is very happy as she is getting the biggest breakthrough of her life, she is selected for a Hollywood film but she is worried that why her family is not picking up her call. Well, actually her brother is critically ill and her family does not want to disturb her as she is very sensitive about her brother so they are afraid that she will leave this opportunity and will come back. So they hide the news of her brother’s condition from her. She signs the contract of 11 Lacs Rupees and gets 1 lac advance cheque.


Momin’s dada has gone back to Turkey without even meeting him and Momin is fearing that he might get angry as he said to him that he is disturbing him so go back to Turkey but he did not mean that. He is reflecting on all the conversations he had with his Dada and it is still disturbing him.

Momin loves Neha but Neha is not loyal to him, she is using him. Neha is kind of a girl with no moral character as her loyalty is not attached to one person. She is expressing her love to her current boyfriend Zulfi saying that she loves him so much and when Zulfi says that she will marry her once he will become a star she says marriage does not matter love does. While on the other hand, she is also expressing love to Momin using endearing words for him. It seems like Momin is going to get badly hurt by this girl. Well, apparently it seems that Momin is fulfilling her demand and he is going to cast Neha’s boyfriend in his upcoming flick but for that, we have to wait for the next episode.
