Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon EK Baar Phir - Written Update - 27th September 2013

The episode starts with Aastha speaking to her dad. He asks her to pass the phone to Shlok. Shlok is slightly surprised when she tells him that her dad wants to speak to him and he takes the call. Avthoodji tells him that he is not worried because Aastha is staying with him but still dad's heart is always full of worries for his daughter. He also asks him to forgive Aastha for her mistakes that she might end up doing. But again tells him that she is a quick learner. Shlok tells him that he had to take Aastha for a reason and that he will take care of her. With that he passes the call to her. She bits him a goodbye and tells him to take care of her mother and that she will speak to her in the morning. Shlok watches Aastha finishing her call with interest.
 
The scene shifts to Aastha's mum discussing about Anjali's call with her husband. He tells her not to worry and that Shlok had forgotton the previous incident and he himself had dropped Aastha home yesterday after helping her. He further adds that Niranjan Sahib has high regards for Aastha. His wife tells him that Aastha works for him all day and hence she is worried. Her husband tells her that Aastha's current work is related to Shlok and hence they had to meet. Kalindi is still not convined and is worrried that people might talk about her daughter.
 
Shlok tries to open the door and his room door gets jammed too. Aastha is panicky and is also worried about being locked in the same room and runs towards the door forgetting her dupatta. She pulls the lock and screams for help. Shlok tells her that the door is jammed and hence she might not be able to do anything. But she keeps puling the handle. At one point the handle gives way and she falls back and Shlok catches her. She holds on to his shirt. She then straightens herself and bangs the door for help. Shlok notices the time and tires to call the reception for help. At that moment the electricity shuts down. Aastha tells him that she is afraid of the dark and that she found some candels on the table and to light them. Shlok lights it and notices her dupatta on the floor. He picks it and takes it to her and puts it around her shoulders.
 
He then tells her not to panic but to give her mobile and that he will call the hotel manager and will speak to him. He calls from her mobile and then tells her that the electricity will be out till the morning. Aastha panicks and tells him that she wants to go home and cannot stay in darkness and that too in the same room. He asks her to calm but she tells him that she wants to go home but quietens a bit at the end. He fondly looks at her. He sits with the candle and she sits next to him. She is uncomfortable because of the torn salwar. He notices her inconvenience and gives her the saree that was bought to offer for Devi ma. She tells him that the saree is for the Goddess. He tells her that no God had asked for something that was of utmost need to human beings. Hence she can use this saree and that he will buy another one in the morning. She takes the saree from him and also the candle and leaves for the bathroom to change. He finds some more candles and lights it on. He opens the curtains to let the moon light come in.
 
He notices her reflection on the window and turns around to find her standing. He walks to her bound by her beauty. She notices the hot wax that had dropped on his fingers, quickly takes the candle from him and places it on the table and tends to his fingers. She blows his fingers to ease the pain. He comes out of his trance and pulls her roughly and asks her as to why she comes close to him when he doesn't want her to be. He catches hold of her wrist and breaks her bangles. Finally to cool himself he turns around and grabs a bottle of water and drinks it. Aastha picks up the broken pieces of bangels and tells him that its easy to break the bangles but very difficult to fix it back. He gets flashback of a girl calling him and  her bangles. He again roughly pulls Aastha closer to him and shouts at her asking why she does things that makes him angry and why she stays closer to him. She tells him that she would want to stay away even from his shadows. She further adds that his thinking about females is always very low and that's why his character is low and further adds that he cannot think of anyone except for himself. Shlok looks at her unable to contol his temper.
 
Precap: He tries to break the door and when it doesn't happen he breaks the window and tells her that she can leave now as she never wanted to be near him nor his shadows. Aastha in tears and looks at him.

At aastha's home ..Kalindi is upset that anjali had spoken so lowly about Aastha ...

She is worried about her closeness with shlok .. Niranjan tries to put her mind to rest ... But she is worried that aastha has to spend long hours with Shlok and people would would talk about their daughter ...

Niranjan says she was working with Shlok so it is but natural they would meet .. However he promises to talk  it over  Niranjan

In their room shlok finds ..... Their door lock gets jammed and Aastha gets panicky bangs the  door ...
Aastha screams for help ....
Shlok stares at Aastha .... She trips and he prevents her fall by taking her in his arms ... Shaastha eyelock .. Both have some unknown attraction to each other .. They are aware of each other ... Slowly move away ....

Aastha continues to bang the door .. Shlok tries to call the reception but the lights go out and the phone is dead ...

Shlok lights a candle ... He stares at Aastha  in candle light  .. She feels his eyes on herself and feels conscious .. .. As she does not have her dupatta on her ...

Shlok picks up her dupatta and gives it to her ....
Heart Heart

Aastha gets scared in the dark and tells shlok that she wanted to go home right then ...
Shlok tells her to sit down ... And relax ..


Both are shown sitting close together on the floor with shlok holding a candle ....

Then shlok recalls he had a saree for devi maa ...and as Aastha's kurta was torn he gives it to her and tells her to change ....

Starry Love

New BG song ..."Dill sambhal je zara ... Dill ruk jaa zara phir muhobbat karney chala hai tu ...."

Song plays as shlok looks at aastha ... Aash too looks into his eyes ... Both become aware of unknown attraction between them ....
Aastha takes the candle from him and goes to change ...

Awareness dawns on shlok .. He looks at the bangles on her wrist .....and he recalls his flash back  .. Where he sees a lady calling him .. And putting on some bangles .... He grabs Aastha by her shoulders .. Shakes her violently ... Aastha iscompletely bewildered by his behaviour ....

 He screams at her .. Why did she come close to him all the time .. Angered him .. Forced him to lose control all the time ....he tells her to get out ..he wrings her wrist and breaks all the bangles .... Andthey scatter on the floor ..
Broken Heart Broken Heart 
Aastha pics up the bangles and asks him could he put them together once again .. If he could not .. Why did  he break them !!
No No

Aastha tells him she hated him and would love to stay away .. Keep long distance between them .....would go out only if the wretched door of the room opened ...he tells her to shut up .. and pushes her away 

Precap ... Aastha covers  her ears as Shlok bashes his shoulder on the window pane and shatters it .. Then yells at her .. She wanted to stay away from his shadow ... She she could get out  now .. Aastha looks at him in stunned disbelief

Thanks for the update...n shlok is unreasonable, why the hell he has to take her?? Is it bcuz he dnt hv ny access to any other gal n he needs a gal for puja?
Why r co-incidences hurled upon forcefully to show shastha face off? At least it shud look a lil bit real...they stil lack scripting and execution...
I had guessed it right, haunted-haseena came in betn...missed Ninjali

Aasudi because the kul devi pooje required a certain offferings to be made by a female .. So just to teach her a lesson and take his revenge he takes her along .. He could have taken Mangala or his bhaabhi or mom too ...
If it was Arnav he would have taken one of the aashram's old ladies ...
Arnav was very respectful of elders and mote polite ...

anu, might b 'this gal spent night wid me' like someone said earlier in another post...first, the door of another room wasnt opening, then the sole room is also locked with no lights n no room service...al staffs gone...it hints conspiracy n i doubt it has started with job offer...i tell u anu, there's high chances the writer wil fail to impress audience with opening the suspense bottle if script n execution is going to b like this light...i m losing interest in shastha more n more

Absolutely right analysis Uma... He didnt have the heart to carry out his evil plan... Whatever it was.... He still scares me when he grabs her by the mouth...
