Mishal, feeling upset about the constant scolding, apologizes and proceeds to record the segment again.

Recording Critique

During Mishal’s interview recording, she’s advised to loosen her scarf, with a reminder that it’s not the olden days. Upon completing the recording, she’s informed that it’s good but she mispronounced the word corrected by Hussain. Despite pronouncing it as instructed, she asserts this, only to be pressured by the person who insists they know better.

Controversy Surrounding Zambeel Shahid

Meanwhile, a new controversy swirls across social media involving actress Zambeel Shahid, whose intimate scenes from an international movie have been leaked. Headlines address this issue as the anchor questions Naved Khan, a senior anchor, seeking his opinions. On television, Naved Khan openly criticizes Zambeel Shahid, expressing his personal disapproval.

Naved Khan’s Opportunistic Move

Subsequently, Naved wears a sly smile, and when questioned about it, he reveals that breaking the news is for those who take action, while others simply follow. He implies that he’s the source of the news and declares that Zambeel Shahid’s case is now in his hands, presenting an opportunity for him to gain unlimited benefits.

Mishal’s Mother and TV Dreams

Mishal’s mother spends the entire day watching the news. When her husband inquires about the reason, she casually mentions it’s because she has free time. He insists that he knows her well and believes she watches the news to see her daughter fulfill her childhood dream of being on TV. He adds that it’s unlikely to happen and suggests she should have pursued LLB and gotten married by now.

Financial Struggles and Borrowing from Hussain

Following the recording, Hussain drives Mishal to her solo residence. Struggling with overdue rent due to a delayed salary, she requests to borrow money from Hussain. Initially, he mentions she should have informed him earlier, stating he doesn’t have cash. However, he returns to her place later, having visited the ATM, and provides her with the needed money.

Teenage Neighbor’s Gossip and Mother’s Advice

Mishal’s peculiar teenage neighbor, who also happens to be her landlord’s son, has an odd interest in her and questions why Hussain drops her off. Annoyed by his audacity, Mishal dismisses him. The young man then goes to his mother, sharing details about Hussain dropping Mishal late at night and the neighborhood gossip. His upright mother scolds him, advising him not to meddle in others’ affairs and to focus on his studies. Irritated by his mother’s reprimand, he storms out of the room.
