The episode begins with Akshu inquiring about Kairav's destination and Neela's well-being. Kairav affirms he's headed for an important deal, adding that Manish is also upset. Akshu then wonders if Muskaan is accompanying him for the deal. Kairav reveals that Muskaan is going to Mumbai for a week due to important work. Akshu persistently asks why they're missing her wedding. Muskaan chimes in, mentioning Manjiri's concerns about her disrupting the ceremony due to her connection with Abhinav. Kairav reassures Akshu of his support, but Muskaan's explanation leaves Akshu determined to make her own decisions.
Later, Abhi expresses his concerns about Kairav's absence at the Sangeet, and Akshu arrives, requesting a private conversation with Manjiri. Abhi insists on being present, leading to a tense discussion. Akshu ultimately apologizes, refusing to accept the condition of excluding Muskaan from the wedding. Abhi confronts Manjiri about her decision, but she defends it by stating that a wedding requires everyone's goodwill, and Muskaan wishes ill upon Abhi. Akshu argues that Muskaan's presence is essential for Kairav's attendance, while Mahima also demands Parth's invitation.
Aarohi adds her concerns about Muskaan's actions causing harm to Abhinav, and Abhi and Akshu emphasize their desire for Abhir to receive love from both families. Manjiri pleads with them not to refuse the wedding, leading to a compromise. Meanwhile, Kairav eats sweets while stressed, prompting Akshu to intervene and encourage him.
The preparations for the wedding begin in earnest, with Manish proposing a Rajasthani-style celebration, including a Ganpati puja. Dadi explains the choice, and Abhir and Ruhi excitedly volunteer to fetch clay for the Ganpati idol. Kairav stops Muskaan and advises her to fulfill her responsibilities. Muskaan hesitates, but Akshu steps in, stating that they won't force her, and they respect her decision.
Later, Abhi discusses the situation with Parth, inviting him to the wedding to avoid further conflict with Mahima. Surekha mentions Muskaan's intention to create drama at the wedding, and Akshu suggests that Muskaan simply attend.
Precap: Abhi and Akshu unveil the Ganpati idol, only for everyone to be shocked when Manjiri points out an error: the trunk should be on the left side, leaving them unsure how to proceed
