Anxiety over Anupama's disappearance:
Tonight's Anupamaa episode begins with Anuj's (Gaurav Khanna) concern for Anupama (Rupali Ganguly), who has gone missing without informing anyone. Adhik questions Romil's (Viraj Kapoor) whereabouts, prompting suspicion. Barkha also notices something odd about Romil's behavior. Anupama confronts Romil, expressing her anger about his actions. She emphasizes the consequences their families faced due to his revenge prank.
Anupama confronts Romil:
Meanwhile, Toshu and Samar are searching for Pakhi (Muskan Bamne). Anupama pleads with Romil to reveal Pakhi's whereabouts, but Romil claims ignorance, blaming his friend for locking her up. Anupama blames Romil for frightening Pakhi and questions how he would feel if his own sister were in the same situation. She warns him of lifelong guilt if anything happens to Pakhi. Anuj notices that Anupama's phone isn't ringing, while Adhik remains suspicious of Romil's involvement in Pakhi's disappearance. Ankush and Barkha argue about accusing Romil without proof. Adhik insists they focus on the matter, promising to take action if Romil is guilty. Anupama calls Romil's friend and warns him to speak or face police involvement. The friend confesses to giving Pakhi sleeping pills and fleeing when the situation escalated. Anupama is shocked and informs Anuj.
Romil's arrest imminent:
Back at the Shah residence, Kavya (Madalsa Sharma) cares for Bapuji, while Baa prays for Pakhi's safety. Toshu and Samar continue their search for Pakhi. Anupama brings Romil home, and Adhik confronts him aggressively, demanding to know Pakhi's whereabouts. Romil claims ignorance, and Anupama reveals the friend's confession. Adhik and Barkha suggest involving the police, and Ankush agrees. Romil pleads not to be arrested. Anuj decides to deal with Romil later and prioritizes finding Pakhi. Anupama insists on informing Mr. Shah (Sudhanshu Pandey). Toshu and Samar receive a lead but no significant information.
Malti Devi's arrival:
Meanwhile, Pakhi loses consciousness, and three mysterious men approach her. She calls out to Anupama and Anuj. Just as they are about to approach her, Malti Devi arrives, and the men flee. Malti Devi recognizes Pakhi as Anupama's daughter.
In the precap of Anupamaa, Anuj questions why Anupama is looking outside, and she believes Pakhi is coming. She sees Pakhi with Malti Devi and rushes to hug her, while Malti Devi announces that they have found the girl, leaving Anupama stunned.
