By Tricity News
Chandigarh 26th April:- It seems like the problems in the life of King Krishnadevraya are never ending. This time the King is trapped in a very tricky situation where everyone thinks he will get married for the third time.
In the upcoming episodes viewers will see that Sharda (Priyamvada Kant) and Rama (Krishna Bharadwaj) along with queen Chinnadevi (Sonia Sharma) go to the garden to invite Krishnadevraya (Manav Gohil) at their house. Saudamini is wandering in the same garden where Krishnadevraya is. Suddenly it gets very windy and dust gets into Saudamini’s eyes. On hearing her scream, Krishnadevraya finds her and decides to help her remove the dust particle from her eyes by blowing in them. Just then, Sharda and Rama enter the garden along with Chinnadevi, they see Krishnadevraya  and Saudamini (Heer Chopra) in close proximity and from their angle of vision it appears to them as if Saudamini and Krishnadevraya are kissing each other.
By seeing this Chinnadevi gets upset and walks away. Later, Rama warns Sharda to not discuss this incident with anyone and keep it a secret. Sharda who is never been able to keep secrets goes and reveals the incident to queen Tirumala (Priyanka Singh) adding more gossip to the entire incident. Tirumala also gets upset with the entire incident and tells the same to Tathacharya (Pankaj Berry) adding more drama to it. Tathacharya gets emotionally broken after hearing the entire incident. He decides to confront Saudamini, but in the series of incidents he misunderstands her which assures him that something has happened between her and the King. Further the news of Krishnadevraya getting married to Saudamini spreads like a wildfire. When Krishnadevraya comes to know about the same he gets angry and blames Rama for spreading the rumor, since he was present in the garden when the incident happened. When Rama denies spreading the rumour, he asks Rama to find the real culprit who has spread the false rumour.
Commenting on the track Manav Gohil who plays King Krishnadevraya said that now it’s really becoming tough for Krishnadevraya to lead a normal life due to the fake marriage rumour.  Since he always trusts Rama, he gives the task of finding the real culprit to Rama. The interesting part will be to see if Rama will be successful in finding the real culprit or not.
