Vikrant parks his car as he answers his phone.
“Hello Vikrant, Harsh bol raha hun” Harsh’s tensed voice spoke from the other end.
“Kya hua Harsh pareshan kyun hai”
“Bhaai kal teri gaadi chahiye”
“Hatt saaley, girlfriend ko chamkane ke liye meri gaadi mili tere ko?”
“Chamkana nahin hai bhaai, bhagaana hai”
Harsh explains his situation to Vikrant. His helpless condition compels Vikrant to help. He pauses for a moment and asks, “Plan kya hai?”
“Kal raat ko kareeb 11 baje, Mai Riya ko Ram Mandir ke saamne se pick karunga. Phir raat ko hi hum Kalkatta nikal lenge. Jahan mera Chachera bhaai rehta hai. Uske yahan teri gaadi rakhwa kar hum subah ki flight pakad kar Bhopal chale jaayenge. Wahan se phir Kareli”
Vikrant thinks for a moment and says “Plan to thik hai, par Riya ke baap ko bhanak bhi lagi to tu kat jaayega”
“Ghabra mat tere aur mere alawa yeh baat sirf Riya aur Neha jaante hai.” Harsh assures him.
