In the last episode of the Telugu TV show Attarintlo Akka Chellellu, we saw that Aditya forced Dharani to meet him urgently at her tailoring shop. Shravani found out about their meeting and decided to meet Aditya, dressed up as Dharani. Her sister Dharani tells her to not to do it and suggests another plan to listen to her conversation with Aditya. By the end of it, Shravani sees Dharani in Aditya’s arms. But later, she is convinced that Dharani does not have any feelings for Aditya.
In today’s episode, Shravani is sure that Dharani isn’t the one who has feelings towards Aditya, it’s only him. But she wonders if he is really trying to forget her or just pretending to. Dharani sees Shravani at the corner and is scared thinking whether she has seen anything. Vikram asks Aditya what happened to his plan. Aditya responds positively and Vikram conveys his happiness and asks him to continue following the plan. Aditya goes into his room and continues to hurt himself by pulling the rubber band on his wrist because he has failed to forget Dharani.
Narayana returns home later than usual and his wife asks him about the delay. She figures out that he has been working extra hours to fill in for the loan instalments. She is worried that he will end up killing himself in order to pay back the loan. Narayana tells her that it’s the usual life of a poor household. They must continue working hard until the day they die. That’s their life. The next morning, Aditya comes down to the living room and asks his father why his mother did not wake him up with a cup of coffee. He replies by saying that she is following vratam today and so has been busy in the pooja.
Aditya asks his mother if she has eaten anything since last night. When she responds saying she hasn’t, he yells at her, saying it’s not a wise decision to starve and do everything else. Vedavati tells him that she is following the Vata Savitri vratam for his father’s long and happy life. She asks him to freshen up quickly and accompany her to the temple and Aditya agrees. His father tells Vedavati that she mustn’t take him along. But Vedavati says that he won’t do any wrong since she has asked him to behave. Aditya overhears this and decides to stay by his mothers’ side.
Shravani comes out yelling for coffee when Narayana informs her that she must fast today, along with her mother and Dharani. Shravani’s mother asks her to come along with them to the temple. Shravani insults them by saying that poojas and vratams are for jobless people. Dharani tells her that these vratams aren’t to ask something from the gods. Instead, it is to thank them for everything that they have given. Shravani calls it all a waste of time. Narayana takes pride in his daughter’s egoistic behaviour. They further debate about rituals, manners and the marriage of the twins. Narayana, too, talks disrespectfully to his wife and leaves.
She is upset, but Dharani gives her the confidence that everyone will be alright and happy soon. Everyone reaches the temple and Dharani starts with her pooja. She tries to concentrate on the pooja but keeps ‘seeing’ Aditya. She decides to stop it and goes to the temple for archanam. That’s when a young girl asks her mother about the vratam, Dharani steps in and tells her the entire story. People around them are impressed by Dharani’s knowledge and pray for a good husband for her. Just then, Aditya and Vedavati step out from their car.
