3. FAMILY DRAMA

IN MALHOTRA’S MANSION

A car stopped at the mansion’s gate.  Manik came out from the car and moved inside the mansion where his family was waiting for him .

He greets his family chirpily and takes their blessings.  He spends some quality time with them before going to his room for rest .

IN VISHAMBER AND YASHODA’S ROOM

A very heated argument going between the most loveable couple.

yashoda :- ji aap ek bari aur soch lijiye . ( Think once again )

Vishamber :- this is my final decision, yashoda .

Yashoda :- but , she is not right for our manu . You know her true colours then why do you want to make her our daughter in law?

Vishamber :- ( little angry ) don’t forget what pandit ji has said .

Yashoda :- so , that doesn’t mean we make her hitch with our manu . She is not the right choice for him . Why can’t you understand? I don’t want her in my family. Don’t know why I don’t get good vibes from her.

Vishamber :- (in an authoritative tone ) I already made a decision .

Yashoda :- ( little angrily ) and your this decision will cause manik’s whole life. Why don’t you say clearly that you promised Manish bhai to make his grand-daughter our manu’s wife?

Vishamber :- ( aggressively ) If that’s what you want to hear, then yes I promised him .

Yashoda :-  then hear me loud and clear too. You are doing wrong with manik and I am not supporting you in your wrong deeds .

Saying that she moves outside leaving her husband in guilt .

IN PARVEEN AND VARSHA’S BEDROOM

varsha :- finally my baby came . You know Parveen ji , I am so excited because tomorrow papa ji is going to talk about our manu’s marriage . I am so so happy that I can’t tell you .

Parveen :- ok, ok relax mrs.malhotra . But why are you so happy? Because Manik ne abhi tak shaadi ke liye haa nahi kaha hai . ( Because he hasn’t said yes, yet )

Varsha :- so what , I know him . He never denies papaji’s decision . 

Parveen :- don’t keep your hopes high. 

Varsha :- uffff……You don’t ever let me be happy. You destroyed my mood , now go and sleep in the guest room. 

Parveen :- ( shocked ) why???

Varsha :- because I don’t want you here  . Now go before I throw you out .

Parveen :- ( pleading ) please baby …..

After some manofy sessions both slept in each other’s arms .

Next morning, which is going to bring many changes in everyone’s lives.

Malhotras  is present in the living room after having love filled breakfast and chit chatting . They all are spending some family time . But Manik leaves to bring Nandini . Because he decided to introduce her to his family today itself .

After 10 minutes the DIXIT family arrived . They are family friends of the Malhotras .  They came here to fix Manik’s alliance with their daughter . After greeting, they settled down .

Mr. Ajay dixit

Mrs. Divya Dixit

Ajay is a head director of dixit’s enterprise whereas his wife is a social worker. They are the parents of 2 kids. Their one baby is dead because of their mistake for which they are paying till now. They are still a murderer in front of their son. Misses their baby a lot but knows that they can’t get their baby back.

Ajay:- ( looking around ) where is Manik ? Isn’t he home?

Varsha :- ji nahi bhaisab, he went for some work . He will be here soon. 

Innaya :- what is more important than this marriage? maa.

Miss. Innaya dixit

( Daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Dixit )

A hot diva. The pampered daughter of dixit’s. A total spoilt brat, cunning and self obsessed girl. Hates her brother and his wife because of some reason. Wants to be the single heiress of both malhotras and dixits. Wants to marry manik only because she wants a malhotra tag or she is kinda obsessed with manik’s body.

Varsha :- ( caressing her face ) don’t worry my baby , he will be here soon .

Innaya :- ji maa

Manish :- ( asked from vishamber ) have you talked to him about the alliance?

Mr. Manish Dixit

Mrs. Kiran Dixit

( Elder DIXIT’S )

The elder couple of dixit’s. The most supportive and joyful grandparents. 

Vishamber :- No , but you don’t worry he never disobeys my decision.  He will surely say yes for the wedding. 

Varsha :-  who would say no for marrying this beautiful girl. ( caressing innaya’s head with affection )

Divya :- My daughter is so lucky because she will get such a lovely in laws. 

When here this topic is ongoing , one couple is not interested in this shit . They are none other than son and daughter in law of dixit family .

Mr. Arjun dixit

Mrs. Asha dixit

( Elder son and daughter in law of dixit family )

The all time romantic couple. Close friend of manik. knows innaya’s true colour that is why they both hate her so much. Arjun is the CEO of the dixit’s enterprise whereas Asha is his secretary. He misses his baby sister everyday and believes that she is not dead. He is trying hard to solve the mystery with the help of his wife.

The two elder ladies are also not interested in this alliance but they can’t do anything because of their husbands.  Both are just giving pity looks to each other.  They know that Innaya is not the right girl for Manik. But they can’t oppose their husbands decision.  

Suddenly Arjun got up from his seat being frustrated. 

Arjun :-  ( frustrated ) I am going back home . I don’t have time for this shit. 

Ajay :-  ( angrily ) what’s this arjun ? We are here for your sister’s alliance , you can’t go from here like that . She will be hurt .

Arjun :- ( furiously ) she is not my sister . Why do you forget that she is your adopted daughter not your blood.  And I am not gonna give her the right which my princess deserves .

Saying that he goes out from the mansion . Asha too follows her husband .

Ajay :- ( tiredly ) what do I do with him? How will I make him understand that she is not alive.

Innaya :- ( fake concern ) don’t worry dad , bhai will understand soon. He loves her a lot that’s why he is not able to forget her. 

Divya :- I know he will understand soon and will love you too as he does to his princess. 

Innaya fake smile.  The elder ladies recognised her fake smile and glared at her for making a fool of their families.  But alas they can’t do anything because they don’t have strong proof against her. 

Kiran :- ( whispers in yashoda’s ear ) if I have the right to kill just like Priyanka Chopra has in saat khoon maaf then I will surely kill this lizard . ( Pointing towards innaya ) 

Yashoda :- ( too whispers ) And I will support you too .

Both of them shake hands with sheepish smiles . Their talks come to an halt when they hear manik’s car sound. 

Manik came inside holding Nandini’s hand who was damn nervous . Everyone stands from their seats seeing Manik entering inside while holding the girl ‘s hand .

Manik happily came inside holding Nandini and stood in front of his family .

Seeing him entering inside holding some girls hand vishamber got angry. Whereas Everyone is in a shocked state seeing him with a girl. Manik and girls are poles apart because he never gave a damn to any girls. He is a little introverted when it comes to girls. Seeing him anyone can get doubt about their relationship.

Vishamber :- ( angrily ) who is she Manik ?

The anger in his voice scared Nandini and her grip on manik’s hand got tighter.  Seeing her getting scared Manik holds her hand firmly . He is too shocked to see his dadu in anger. 

Manik :- dadu …. She is Nandini. And please calm down … why are you getting hyper? She is getting scared. She is already nervous in front of you and you are scaring her more.

Saying this he caresses Nandini’s hand to calm her. Seeing him caring about some random girl ( according to her ) innaya got jealous.

innaya :- ( angrily ) leave all this tell me, what is your relation with her, manik?

Manik :- one second……. Who are you to even ask this? 

Instead of Innaya, varsha speaks in support of her because she is head over heels in love with her. She always considered her as Manik’s wife. 

Varsha :- she has full rights on you. Because she is YOUR WOULD BE WIFE.

Hearing this the floor slips from Manik’s feet.  Nandini stiffend hearing her. Her hand unintentionaly slips from Manik’s hold. Before her hand slipped from his hold, manik gripped her hand more firmly and said with rage.

Manik :- what!!!!! WIFE? ( to his dadu ) what is maa saying, dadu? ( not getting any reply he said further ) I CAN’T MARRY HER. I LOVE NANDINI AND WANT TO MARRY HER. 

He stood beside nandini while holding her tightly in his arms without caring for anybody. Whereas Nandini is controlling her tears. Somewhere she got an idea about where this will lead them. 

On the other hand, everyone is too shocked to react . They never expect this from manik. He is always an obedient son who will follow everyone’s orders and never question or demand anything in return. But now he is making his own decisions. 

But there are two souls who are happy from inside but giving emotion less expressions from outside . They are dancing in mind and adoring their soon to be  daughter in law who is continuously looking at the floor while controlling her sobs.

Yashoda :- ( whispers in Kiran’s ear ) Look at her, she is so cute just like a baby . Her innocence is clearly visible on her face.  And this dress is perfectly fitting her curves. BEAUTIFULL…… OMG….. I have got such a cute granddaughter- in law. Thank you baba ji…….

Kiran :- ( too whispers ) yup!!! ( with fake jealousy ) LUCKY BITCH!!!! . But I must say manik’s choice is best . 

She said this while creasing her forehead as if she is trying hard to recognise her but is unable to do so.

Innaya came forward and tried to separate them. But Manik held nandini’s hand more firmly and pushed innaya away in anger .

Manik :- don’t you dare to come near me. I will forget my limit and will make your life hell.

There was some different aggression in his voice which scared all of them who are present in the hall currently. But innaya’s obsession for him took a troll on her.

Innaya :-  ( possessively ) you can’t marry her Manik . You are mine only mine . I love you. ( goes towards her dad )  Why are you not saying anything? He can’t marry her right . I love him . So, how can he marry her?

Manik :- what are…

Manik is going to say something but stops in mid listening to his dadu’s angry voice. 

vishamber :- she is saying right Manik . You can’t marry her . I fixed your marriage with innaya .

Yashoda :- but…

She stopped in mid after seeing her husband’s hand.

Vishamber:- don’t come in between us . Just don’t!! ( Turns towards Manik ) It’s my final decision Manik , you have to marry innaya for your or our’s benefit .

Manik is standing there in shock and Nandini is silently crying . Never in her dream she ever thought that one day someone will try to separate them.

Manik :-  ( crying ) dadu, what are you saying ? It’s a prank right ?  Please stop this prank here. I am fed-up with this.
