Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai starts with Naira (Shivangi Joshi) seeing the gifts sent from Kartik’s (Mohsin Khan) family. Everyone tease her. Naira says none will take my gifts. Gayu and Mishti ask her to see the change; Naira does not like to share gifts. Gayu (Kanchi Singh) says we will call Kartik as Naira listens to him. Naira gets shy and runs. Naitik smiles. Bhabhimaa says we should send Shaurya to get Naksh (Rohan Mehra), so that he can explain him. Devyaani agrees. Kartik talks to his mum are painting and tell about Naira. He sees the frame different and gets angry. Suwarna comes and says Dadi has sent puja items, touch this, I will send to pandit. Kartik asks her to keep it. She says I got this frame made. He asks why you touched this, I don’t want you to interfere in my matters, stay away from all this. She says frame broke by wind, you were busy and I did not get chance to tell you, sorry. She goes. He fixes frame back. Kartik thinks of Naira and takes selfie to send her. He sees Manish behind and goes. Manish looks on. Dadi asks Manish not to worry, I will not let Kartik go, let Kartik’s love win, but I promise, I will not let our relations fail.
Lav and Kush ask Kartik to get Naira home, they will play games. Kartik says Naira is marrying me, so she will be in my team. Surekha asks when are you going to give sherwani order, I shortlisted all the lists, I know Dadi will ask me, I fit in her standards. Mansi says all the best Kartik. Kartik says I m not interested in parties, menu and clothes, just get me married, I have car, I will race it and get Naira. Mansi says no. Akhilesh says Kartik is joking; groom will go on horse in baraat. Kartik says it’s time for Dadi’s medicine. Lav says I feel Dadi is fine. Kush asks is she doing acting to be ill. Kartik says no, she was seriously ill, doctor said she has stress because of me, I feel guilty, I will give her medicine. Naira sees clothes and jewelry. She dresses up a bit to see. She sees Akshara’s pic and cries. Naitik comes there. Naira removes the bindi and dupatta. Naitik makes her wear bindi and chunri again.
He says you used to do this in childhood also, you used to tell about doll’s marriage, I used to be glad with your games, see you have grown up today, I wish this was just a game. She says sorry Papa, mumma used to say daughters’ can’t stay with Papa always, but you have first right on me. He hugs her. Kartik gives medicine to Dadi. She says I will have later. Kartik goes to get more medicines. Lav and Kush come to make song. They ask Suwarna to make video, we will dance. Dadi dances with them and gets tired. Manish asks what happened, I will call doctor. Dadi stops him. He says if you faint like that day then… She says I m fine, I got tired, doctor said my heart is weak, as I told doctor to tell Kartik, I love Kartik a lot and can’t stay away, I lied of heart disease to him. Manish gets shocked. Dadi asks Manish to try this, do anything to keep Kartik with us. Kartik hears this and gets shocked.
He goes to room and says I did not wish to come here and stayed here for Dadi, I trusted her the most. I thought Naira will be happy coming here, but not anymore, I will not get her here where all relations are fake. He gets angry. Kartik goes and meets Naira. She asks whose house is this. He asks her to open door, its couple’s house, I know them. She asks do I know, who is it. He asks her to open door. She sees the house. He says the guy is seeing this flat for that girl, how is it. She says its cute, but small. He says fine, the guy has to see budget, he is not big businessman and does job. She says I did not mean that, sorry, but kitchen is very small. He says you did not like it. She says no, I said its cute. He says then showed many flaws. She says I will say good things also, that window corner is romantic, and the couple can have tea coffee there. Kartik imagines them. She says good use is they can be infront of each other always. He imagines her dancing and he is sitting working and seeing her. She says kitchen is cute; they can cook together and romance. He imagines romancing. She says there will be much small happiness in small world. He imagines sleeping together. She says its perfect house to stay for a couple, their private world, it will be romantic one. He smiles.
Manish asks manager what it is. Manager says my brother went to see house for rent, he saw Kartik, he also came to find flat on rent, I did not believe it but my brother showed me picture. He shows pic to Manish. Manish gets shocked. Naira says your friend will be happy. Kartik asks sure, shall I say who it is. She says yes. He holds her hand. He shows Naira and Kartik’s home sweet home board. He says it’s our house. She gets shocked and drops the keys. She asks why, what are you saying, we will stay with family. He says I know family is imp for you, but…. family was imp for me also, I mean its imp even now, but we can’t stay with them. She looks on.
