Shrimaan Shrimati (Overview)
Episode 1 (23/02/2009)
: Introduction to the main characters
Keshav Kulkarni is dreaming of travelling with a beautiful lady in a plane while Kokila interrupts and breaks his dreams and so ensues a big fight (today being their 10th anniversary) which begins to annoy their neighbour, Mr. Kutti. This annoyance finally leads to Mr. Kutti vacating the flat. This new twist to Keshav's life is that a new set of neighbours in the form of Prema Shalini and Dilruba arrive. Keshav Kulkarni is excited!
Episode 2 (24/02/2009)
: New neighbours shift to their new home
The new neighbours of Keshav have arrived, but not the items to be shifted. So Dil (Dilruba) for the very first time visits Keku's and Koki's (both names given by Dilruba) household to borrow milk while Keku offers him help of arranging a tempo for shifting the items. Meanwhile Doll (Prema) manages to arrange a tempo seperately. Chaos reigns supreme thereon when both tempos arrive and try to get the items shifted to the new flat. Somehow Gokhale's (Keku's colleague) tempo manages to get majority of the items into the tempo he arranged. Later Doll is annoyed that the fight which occured while shifting between the tempo guys damaged most of her "precious" items and avoids making the payment for either tempo. While tempers arise for non-settlement of payments Keku arrives at the scene and ensures that he'll settle the bills on behalf of Prema Shalini, and thus for the very first time generates a goodwill with Doll.
Episode 3 (25/02/2009)
: Keshav's boss eager to meet the new neighbour
Keku is extremely excited on the fact that Prema Shalini is his new neighbour, much to the annoyance of Koki. However, the news of the new neighbours reaches all the people in Keku's office and especially the boss Mr. Shetty (later known as Mr. Sharma). The boss drools over the fact and requests Keshav for a personal meeting with Prema Shalini immediately and threatens Keshav with his job if he fails to get an appointment. So Keshav brings home the boss promising to fulfil the desire of the boss. Keshav then takes the help of Dilruba since Prema is having a double-shift shoot for a vampire role who makes it clear that she would be unable to come for any personal meeting. Keshav gets restless since his job is on the line. Meanwhile in Keshav's house, the boss who is impatiently waiting unknowingly assumes Kokila Kulkarni as Prema Shalini. The boss then begins talking romantically with Koki which perplexes Koki. Then the boss is shocked to learn that Keshav is her husband and they have a child too, named Chintu. Things become chaotic as usual, and Keshav then comes back fearful of stating the truth to his boss and finds that the boss has learnt shocking facts of Keshav's and Prema's relationship. Eventually Keshav explains the misunderstanding that Prema Shalini is not her but Kokila Kulkarni who is his wife and Chintu, his and Koki's son. Suddenly, Prema Shalini enters the Kulkarni household in her vampire attire and chaos resumes supreme and everyone almost runs for their lives.
Episode 4 (26/02/2009)
: Keshav's and Dilruba's new-found-love!
When Dilruba annoys Prema with his "unwanted" remarks during a phone conversation with her hairdresser, a serious fight takes place between them while comparing their relationship with that of their neighbours' loyalty to each other. Meanwhile Keshav is restless to meet Premaji and finally finds an opportunity when Chintu mentions that Prema Aunty is out for a jog on the beach. So he accepts to drop Chintu to school (after initially arguing with Koki) and chance himself a one-on-one meeting with Premaji. So later Keshav finds Premaji jogging on the beach and immediately approaches her. What then happens is very much like a typical Indian movie when Premaji trips over Keshav and her chain gets stuck onto his button and their eyes meet. They soon resume their jogging and Keshav tries to get closer to her. Back in Keshav's house, Dilruba comes over to meet Koki and gives her some exercise tips in order to increase Koki's fitness. Unfortunately Keshav comes back home just in time to see Dilruba personally assisting Koki while exercising. However, they decide that both families have to get introduced properly and the Kulkarnis invite Dilruba (and Prema) to their home for tea. Later, Dil and Doll arrive to the Kulkarni household much to the excitement of Keshav and Dilruba of meeting their "new-found-love". They then sit to chit-chat and eventually end up blaming their wives on how their life is ruined after marriage. Things become risky for the husbands once the families take leave of each other. The wives catch hold of their husbands and begin to threaten them. Another big fights resumes, but for the first time, simultaneously in both the households.
Episode 5 (02/03/2009)
: Keshav visits Prema Shalini's shooting
Keshu is working overtime at office, atleast that's what he says Koki. But actually he is not. He is in the shooting set of Prema Shalini's movie. Prema is enacting a scene where she is busy convincing her dad to get her married to Raju (the hero), when Keshav steps in. He then finds himself as a 'special guest' nominated by Prema herself much to the disgust of Toto, the director, who feels trespassed on his property. Taking advantage of all the luck and comfort given to him, Keku further upsets Toto by passing random remarks loudly and thereby disturbing the shooting and Prema's concentration itself when she unintentionally replaces 'the hero' Raju with an unknown character called 'Keku'. Toto gets frustrated of all this. Keku then dreams that Prema is asking for his hand in marriage and starts breaking down openly that he is already married and has a child, when suddenly he realises that he is in the film set. Toto ultimately faints. Meanwhile Dilruba visits Koki's place on the reason to hand over his house keys. He then makes himself comfortable sitting beside Koki, hoping to have a nice long chat. Koki then starts asking Dilruba few 'private' questions of faith like whether he actually trusts his wife since she's a heroine, and heroines can have additional relationships. Dilruba answers very diplomatically for which Koki mentions that she would feel sympathetic towards Dilruba if ever Prema betrayed on her husband. Hearing this, Dilruba starts pouring out his feelings that he wished he had a wife like Koki, for which Koki gets wary and cautious of his intentions. Suddenly Prema enters into the house (after finsihing her shooting) and catches Dilruba red handed. After Dilruba takes leave, Prema mentions that she felt very special and found Kekuji very 'cute' since he complimented her a lot (especially about her figure) during the shooting. Koki is stunned at her husband's treachery. Finally Keku arrives very late pretending that he had a very tired day in the office doing overtime. Koki intentionally keeps bringing out his 'complimentary' nature and starts shooting sharp questions right at his face. Keku starts perspiring at this when suddenly the lights go out. Prema Shalini enters the house with a candle asking for electrical help for which Keku gladly proposes to help. In the darkness, he guides Prema back to her house by holding onto her shoulders firmly and relishing the journey. Everything seems fun to him until the lights come back. The shoulders he is "holding" turns out to be that of Koki's and he screams.
Episode 6 (03/03/2009)
: Keku's and Dilruba's birthday gifts to their neighbours' wives
Keshav is furious since Koki makes him clean the house using a broom and which their neighbours Prema and Dilruba spot him. So he sits back to read a newspaper when a magazine covering Prema Shalini arrives. In that magazine mentions that Prema Shalini's birthday falls on 15th July (wrongly printed, which should've actually been 15th December). Keshav is excited that his darling Premaji's birthday is on the next day and plans advance wishes. Unfortunately Koki overhears him and mistakes that Keshav was planning surprise wishes for her since Koki's birthday too falls on 15th July. In the presence of this misunderstanding, since Keshav too doesn't realise that it is Koki's birthday tomorrow, she asks him to gift her a pearl necklace. Keku begins to wonder that his luck was very bright since his own wife was giving him lavish plans to organise birthday surprises for his neighbour. However, he soon realises the fact that it was ALSO his wife's birthday on 15th July and Koki was mentioning the surprises all for herself. Later with the help of Gokhale he plans to gift Premaji a dog. Dilruba too learns about Koki's birthday through Chintu and finds out that she wanted a pearl necklace for her birthday and decides to get her that. Prema Shalini's big birthday bash begins at her place and Gokhale gets the dog wrapped up in a gift box. The box attracts unwanted attention from the crowd since it kept barking and also pisses on Toto (Prema's director). Meanwhile the cake doesn't arrive for the big occasion and Prema instructs Dil to go check up. Using this as an opportune moment he visits Koki and gifts her the pearl necklace and spends time with her forgetting about the cake. Doll back here is getting impatient that Dil and the cake both haven't arrived. However, Dil makes it before she loses her temper and in haste goofs up thinking that the big box in which the dog is packed would be the chocolate cake. They're both relieved and call in the people for cake cutting. They then open the box and suddenly a dog jumps out from it. Everything becomes chaotic after that and the owners of the gift make a neat escape after realising the chaos which their "special" birthday gift caused.
Episode 7 (04/03/2009)
: Curfew in view of the escaped criminal
A criminal called 'Sharif Lutera' had escaped from jail. He was known for robbery and kidnapping women especially. Hearing this Doll was panicky since her hubbu Dil was leaving to Delhi as his grandfather was in a serious condition and he was the sole hire of the property. So Dilruba concerned about her safety requests Koki (only, since Keku too is excited) to have an eye for Prema. During the shoot, Prema requests Toto to allow her home early today due to the unsafe neighbourhood. Toto agrees to drop her home himself. So in the evening Toto drops Prema at her place and she requests for his company till Dilruba returns which he accepts on being offered some drinks. Keshav's excitement to give Prema company is still sky-high. He then visits her house twice on two different occasions (one in midnight with the reason to return the duplicate house key given by Dilruba to Koki) to ensure that everything is under control and he is there to look after her safety. And then thrice, when he has a dream that a robber enters Prema's house, when he feels she needs him to protect her. So he has his monkey cap on and bravely faces the night's cold and enters her house to find a silhouette moving across. He then pounces on the unknown "robber" and starts beating him. Prema then hearing the commotion comes out from her bedroom and finds Keku taking it out on no one but her own drunken director, Toto. She then requests Keku to leave her house immediately. Dilruba then finally returns but visits Koki's house to take back the keys, and learns that Keshav has already given it back to Premaji. Now Keku outside is in a fix to get back into his house since he forgot his house key and now he had to climb the wall and enter through the window into get inside (he didn't want to ring the door bell fearing Koki). Suddenly Dilruba and Koki find a masked person entering the window and catch him and pin him. The unlucky "dacoit" frustrated with his uneventful journey removes his monkey cap to reveal his true identity: Keshav Kulkarni.
Episode 8 (05/03/2009)
: Keshav accepts Koki's challenge
Keshu is exercising with extra effort as a reason to feel fit and strong. But everyone in his house is aware that he's doing it to impress Prema Shalini. Once confronted with this statement he denies that he doesn't need to do anything to impress ladies as they themselves would fall in love with him if he desires. So Koki puts up an open challenge to him that he cannot lure Prema Shalini into love. Keshu gleefully accepts the challenge. Keshav then discusses this with his dear friend Gokhale. Gokhale then approaches his office ladies seperately for advice and as to what kind of men they prefer. Based on their inputs (Maria: handsome and attractive, Mrs. Mehta: money and Ms. Joshi: influential) he decides to make up a secret plan to help Keshav gain Prema Shalini's affection. Dilruba meanwhile visits Koki's house on the reason that he is not feeling well. He then proposes to help Koki with her household chores and ends up cooking dinner for them. After finishing cooking Koki suddenly breaks the news that she's on a fast that day and won't be eating anything. Dilruba is devastated over the fact that he cooked all the while to fill up Keshav's stomach! Now that he learns that his neighbour is going to relish his food, he decides to turn things around now by adding extra chilli powder into the food. Keshav returns from office and then sits for dinner and is offered Dilruba's food. After having a spoonful his mouth is set on fire and realises Dilruba's evil joke directed towards him. So he forces Dilruba to eat it too or suggests him that he'll let Prema know that he spent the whole day cooking for Koki rather than for his wife Prema. Dilruba is set on fire and flees from the place. Later Gokhale's secret plan is on the move. A person called TNKSIV Krishna Rao, a film producer in south, comes to sign her for his hit film for a signing amount of Rs. 10 lakhs. She is offered this much since Krishna Rao's so called friend Mr. Keshav had praised her so much that the producer was impressed and immediately wanted to get her signed. Prema is happy, extremely happy. Keshav's challenge is coming to a conclusion now. Premaji visits Keku's house. Prema is suddenly all love towards Keshav and thanks him profusely for what he did for her. She then surprises him (and Koki too who secretly watches from the kitchen) by planting a kiss on his cheek. Keku wins the challenge!
Episode 9 (09/03/2009)
: Prema excited about her fake cheque
Koki is angry with Keshu since last night she witnessed with her very own eyes a scene that would disturb any loyal Indian wife - her husband being kissed on the cheek by her neighbour. This neighbour is extremely happy about her good luck adoring her big cheque which she thinks was possible only through her wellwisher Keku. Meanwhile Keshav is extremely affected by Prema's previous day emotion towards him and creates lot of unwanted scenes in the office when he assumes Maria to be Prema. Later Gokhale reveals that he himself was the south producer TNKSIV Krishna Rao and that the cheque was a blunder. Dilruba later comes to Koki's place and finds her in distress and starts consoling her. Keshav yet again catches Dilruba in action. He then understands from Dilruba that Prema has gone to the shooting to show everyone her new cheque. He then decides to go and prevent her from doing this before its too late. At the shooting, Toto and Gogo (Toto's assistant) is frustrated that the new villain hasn't yet arrived for shooting. Prema has begun showing her cheque to all the people. Keshav arrives at the set and then finds her and tries to explain the true facts about the fake producer and the fake cheque, but Prema is busy and hardly listens. Toto then meets Keshav and strictly informs his spot boy to lock him up in a room and not allow him into the shooting arena lest he would destroy peace and calm again in Toto's life. Once inside, the makeup-man assumes Keshav to be the new villain and starts dressing him up. Keshav is happy with his new found luck that he can get closer to Prema on this pretext, and declares that his name is Jumreesh Puri. Gogo then explains the script to Jumreesh that he should pretend bashing up the hero and take away the heroine Prema. But what Jumreesh does is he gets onto the set and actually bashes up the hero and tries to escape with Prema. Finally Toto catches Jumreesh Puri and is upset over his behaviour and fires him from the film. Then Jumreesh Puri says it does not matter since he was not part of the movie itself. He then removes his beard and reveals to the world that he's Keshav Kulkarni. Keku immediately explains to Prema that the cheque was not real. Keku is again in luck because hearing this she falls into his arms again.
Episode 10 (10/03/2009)
: Keshav's 'love mantra' and 'hate mantra' backfires
Gokhale sends a mantrik to Keshav's house in order to assist Keshav getting closer to Prema Shalini. But the mantrik arrives before Keshav returns from office and gives his astrological guidance to the people in the apartment. Koki and Ganga Mausi (Koki's neighbour) are extremely pleased with the accuracy of the mantrik's predictions. The mantrik tells Koki that she is married to a guy who tortures her a lot and who always runs behind other women. This is suddenly overheard by Keshav who returns from office. Infuriated by the mantrik's statement to his wife, he chases him away rather roughly from the house. He then understands that the mantrik was sent to him by Gokhale and realises that what he did was hasty. Back in office, Gokhale then explains to Keshav that the mantrik was extremely powerful and had such a mantra that a man could capture any women's heart he desired. So Keshav excited about possessing this mantra visits the mantrik along with Gokhale. The mantrik is angry to see the person who humiliated him and who chased him away. However Keshav obtains his respect once again by offering him a whole packet of pakodas. So the mantrik whispers him the 'love mantra'. This mantra would work only when a person keeps his eyes closed after waking in the morning, chants the incantation and opening his eyes to see the person they want to strike love with. So next day Keshav attempts exactly that. He then reaches Prema's doorstep (after Chintu gives him a walking wheel stick to help guide his way and tells him that Dilruba uncle was not available at home) hoping that she would be all alone. He rings the bell and chants the 'love mantra' and then the door opens. He excitedly turns and opens his eyes to make the charm work on the person before him and unfortunately for Keshav it turns out to be Dilruba. Keshav is horror-struck at the turn of events. Dilruba is love struck. Keshav flees the scene. Since then Keshav's life becomes hell as Dilruba tries to call him everytime through phone and also tries to meet him as he's deeply in love with Keshav. Dilruba also visits his office in order to spend some time with him and starts hugging him before his colleagues come to his rescue. Keshav is frustrated, he asks Gokhale to help him out but learns that the mantrik had just left to Kashi. Later at night, Dilruba receives a call from Prema that she will be working overnight. Dilruba is now fearful of sleeping alone in the house and so goes to Keshav's house to spend the night with them. Keshav spends a horrible night because Dilruba keeps trying to get closer to Keshav and Keshav keeps trying to escape from him. Back in office, Keshav is happy to hear from Gokhale that the mantrik had cancelled his trip to Kashi and has returned. Comforted with the thought that the mantrik can sort out his problem, both of them rush to the mantrik. The mantrik now gives him an even more powerful 'hate mantra' which when told to a person will generate hatred beyond hate. Keshav hopes to attempt the same procedure once again as he spends a sleepless night. He goes to the neighbours' door and rings the bell and chants the 'hate mantra' hoping to open his eyes and find Dilruba and that things could return back to normal. But Keshav's luck turns even worse. When he opens his eyes he finds his darling Prema Shalini instead. Prema Shalini is struck by the power of the mantra. She takes out all hate and anger on the person standing outside the door and offers Keshav a tight slap!
Episode 11 (11/03/2009)
: Keshav visits a chinese restaurant
There is no gas in Keshav's house to prepare food. So Koki and Chintu requests Keshav to take them out for dinner that night. However Keshav is in no mood to spend money and finds eating food outside would be bad for the stomach. He leaves for office denying Chintu his wish for which Chintu starts crying. Dilruba then enters. Koki then explains the situation and about Keshav's refusal. So Dilruba then invites all of them for dinner along with him and Prema as they were planning to eat dinner outside too. To convince Keshav, he takes the help of Doll to invite Keshav. The main reason Dilruba takes all this trouble is because his Koki's wish would also be granted. Prema initially hesitates but finally calls Keshav up and invites him to a chinese restaurant called 'Tuk Tuk'. Keshav is extremely excited at the fact that he was invited for dinner by Premaji. So he goes to Mr. Sharma (his boss) for permission to leave early for the day and also for the month's salary. He gives a reason that his wife was seriously ill and hence the urgency. Sharma and Gokhale, however, very well know that he had been invited for dinner and that is the reason for the cooked up story. Keshav then reaches home and asks Koki to get dressed up quickly. Koki and Chintu then start questioning him about his comments in the morning about eating outside and why the sudden change in mind now! Keshav then explains the importance of Premaji's invitation and why they have to rush. So they reach Tuk Tuk and take a seat beside Prema and Dilruba who were already waiting for them. Sharma and Gokhale too enter the restaurant in a chinese disguise and spy on Keshav's date. Prema requests Keshav to order dinner on everyone's behalf. But since it was Keku's first visit to a chinese restaurant he wasn't aware of the cuisine available. But still, in order to keep his prestige in front of Prema Shalini he started goofing up by ordering indian dishes. So Dilruba finally orders food for everyone. Keshav gets himself drinks and gets boozed completely. This unfortunately makes him bitch about his boss unnecessarily, while Sharma closeby overhears everything. In a high, with being in conversation with Prema Shalini, he speaks rudely to all those who interrupt him. Later the bill comes. In a drunken state Keshav is adamant that he would pay the bill, against Prema's wishes. He then looks at the bill and is shocked! Koki tries to work a way out by ordering an ice cream for Chintu and requests for a fresh bill which would give them time to think a way out. But things are worse, Keshav does not have a rupee in his pocket as Koki had removed all the money from his coat. Koki curses Keshav for being hasty in offering to pay the bill. However, Prema and Dilruba take leave. The family is in dire straits as to how they would pay the bill when fortunately for them, the two chinese people come over to their table and reveal their identity. Keshav begs his boss to help him out. Sharma then mentions that he already has paid the bill for which Keshav becomes very happy. Then Sharma very cunningly, in order to seek sweet revenge on Keshav's earlier statements on him, mentions that the huge bill will be deducted from Keshav's salary.
Episode 12 (12/03/2009)
: Prema's duplicate
Everyone at office is busy preparing for the arrival of Sheikh al Bukhar who is expected to sign a huge contract with the company. Sharma is being pestered by the Sheikh to invite Prema Shalini to the grand party as he's a big fan of her. In turn Keshav now is in huge pressure as it becomes his duty to ensure Prema as the chief guest at the party. So he is told to invite Prema to the function without any delay. Back in the set, Toto is explaining a scene to Prema where she will have to enact as if jumping from the staircase but the act will be actually performed by her duplicate called Rooma. Ironically Rooma is so similar that Keshav mistakes her as the actual Prema Shalini and tries to save her when she jumps. He then learns that she wasn't the actual Prema and is wonderstruck! He then meets Prema and requests of her presence at the party but Prema is already scheduled to have a shoot on that day and regrets her unavailability. Keshav is in a fix since his job is on the line now. He then returns home dejected and narrates his situation to Koki. Koki promises to take the help of Dilruba to convince Prema. Dilruba and Koki together then visit the shooting set to find Prema but end up meeting Rooma. They too are shocked to know that she's a duplicate. They then meet Prema and personally request her but Prema is still adamant and expresses her apologies. So they scheme up to take Rooma herself to the party by offering to pay her money and free food at the function. Dilruba then escorts Rooma to the function. Everyone is pleased to see Prema Shalini (Rooma) arrive, especially Keshav, Sharma and Al Bukhar. The Sheikh is now very happy that he goes ahead and signs the contract. Later Sheikh and Rooma happily spend time together drinking and eating. He then is so impressed by her that he proposes Rooma in front of everyone and takes her back to his country to make her his wife. Back at the set everyone is waiting for Rooma's shot but no one knows of her whereabouts. The real Prema then learns that Dilruba took Rooma along with him and gets frustrated with her hubbu's actions.

Episode 13 (16/03/2009)
: Koki becomes blind
Ganga Mausi carefully explains to Koki about how her daughter obtained the love and affection of her husband by just pretending to be blind. Koki found this technique to be very useful and decided to try it out herself. She suddenly pretends to lose her eyesight and with the help of Ganga Mausi's neice, who is a doctor, she gets her permanent-blindness theory confirmed. Keshav is supposed to be saddened by this fact. But no, he actually is happy! Because he no more has to worry about Koki poking her nose into his 'business'. Meanwhile at Keshav's office the colleagues witness a sensational sight when Gloria (their colleague) gets healed by a healer through the experience of 'healing touch'. Back at home, listening to Koki's plight Dilruba sheds tears of pity and sorrow like as if his own eyesight were lost. But he is least bit worried about his own wife's plight. Prema Shalini had twisted her leg and had to remain in bed rest until it healed. This got her extremely frustrated as her opportunities in the movie industry were on the line. Meanwhile Ganga Mausi brings in the news about Prema's ill health. Listening to this Keshav is saddened. Gokhale comes out with yet another idea for Keshav to grab hold of this situation, an idea of 'healing by touch'. Keshav is excited! To ensure that he doesn't get caught while 'healing' Prema Shalini, both of them go to investigate the truth about Koki's blindness and get confirmed when Koki, in the process of investigation, almost takes away Gokhale's eyesight. Now with their path cleared of Koki they decide upon a plan. Dil is meanwhile massaging Doll's leg when a person calling himslf as Keshav Kulkarni's patient comes to their place in search of his magical healer Keshav when he suddenly falls down having seizures. Keshav pretending to be entering casually suddenly spots his patient and heals him within seconds through his 'healing touch'. Impressed by this Prema requests Keshav to heal her through his magical hands, much to the annoyance of Dilruba. Clearing out Dilruba too from the way he now chances his hands upon Prema's leg when Koki, still pretending blind, witnesses all the events unfold before her eyes. She becomes so mad with anger that she hits Keshav hard on the back and in the process Keshav falls on Prema's broken leg. Prema screams. During the melee that follows Prema experiences the miracle of the touch of Keshav and especially the initial push of Koki. Prema Shalini has been healed. Dilruba rushes back and is extremely pleased to learn of the fact that she is alright, that his darling Koki's eyesight is alright!
Episode 14 (17/03/2009)
: Chintu's teacher meets his fake parents
Chakraborty Dada is directing his very first film. So he's quite anxious that everything goes well. But luck does not favour his debut so well as Prema Shalini, his heroine for the film, is not yet present at the shooting set. However he isn't aware that Prema Shalini is about to be play a role in another act shortly: a motherly act. Ajay (Chintu's real name) was sent home from school by his teacher as he had not worn his uniform nor written his homework and had deliberately sent a rubber snake towards the teacher which had thus petrified the poor lady. So he was sitting outside his apartment crying while Prema sees him and rushes to help. She learns about his story and brings the boy to her place as both his parents were not at home. Chintu then tells her that he is in serious trouble as the teacher had said that she would be arriving shortly to meet his parents and understand the reason of his improper behaviour at school. Fearful of his parents' blastings he requests Prema to become his mom for just a short time until the teacher was there. Prema initially hesitates but later accepts when Chintu offers her a signing amount (of Rs. 5). Chintu then brings his new mom to his house and asks her to dress up like his original mom with a saree. The teacher arrives. Prema greets the teacher while being dressed in the saree rather shoddily. The teacher then begins questioning Ajay's mom with a few personal questions required to assess Chintu's upbringing qualities. Prema falters at the questions but somehow manages by saying that he is being musically trained by one 'Master Panditji'. The teacher then asks for a cup of tea so Prema goes to prepare it although she has no clue about how it has to be done. Nevertheless the so-called tea is prepared and immediately after sipping the tea the teacher feels like puking and rushes towards the restroom. In this distraction, Chakroborty arrives to learn about the whereabouts of Prema and finds her at Koki's place instead. Prema then explains the situation she is stuck up in and hence her delay. The teacher, after clearing up, comes back to find Prema along with another person whom she considers as Ajay's father Mr. Keshav Kulkarni. Chakraborty is now forced to act as Chintu's dad. But he goofs up even more.

: Koki's mom and Prema's dad meet each other
A letter arrives at Koki's place that her mother Bhaumati is shortly arriving to their place. Keshav is disgusted in hearing this news and leaves. Coincidentally Prema's father Captain Sher Singh is also arriving shortly. Even more conincidentally, both the parents arrive simultaneously at the gate. Their eyes meet each other and its love at first sight. Keshav later calls at Prema's place hoping to have a quick chat with her when a rough voice greets him over the phone. Carelessly considering the voice to be that of a gurkha he curses him for his adocity to answer the phone. The gurkha turns out to be the forest-officer-father of Prema Shalini and threatens Keshav. Keshav calls back again and this time Prema lifts the phone. He starts backbiting on the voice whom he considered as a gurkha when the forest officer snatches the receiver and overhears him and threatens him once again. He later visits Prema's house to be this time personally greeted by his gurkha. Sher Singh takes out his gun when he learns that this is the man who backbited on him and shoots at the ceiling while Keshav flees. Back at home, Keshav is annoyed that his mother-in-law is always behind his back. One of the biggest annoyances of Keshav is that his mother-in-law had occupied his position in the balcony. Bhanumati had occupied it since she found her love-at-first-sight stranger Captain Sher Singh in Prema Shalini's balcony conveying with her rather romantically. This balcony romance continues to the parks too. By this time Keshav is totally agitated by his mother-in-law's ruling nature. He and Gokhale think up an idea of creating a fake love story (they don't have any clue that the love story is actually for real) between the two elderly people and thus bringing peace in the balcony and his own life. Keshav starts enacting the plan by slowly feeding it into Koki's mind that her mother is in love with Prema's father. Koki is disgusted with Keshav's statement. Sher Singh later calls Bhanumati to his house (as Dilruba and Prema were not there) to spend a pleasant time viewing their past memories. The clock ticks by. Koki is frustrated that her mother is not found to be anywhere. Keshav starts questioning Chintu about information and learns about Sher Singh's call to Chintu's grandma. Keshav is excited that his plan is actually gathering truth. While both of the elders are enjoying their chat Prema and Dilruba arrive. Fearful of being caught together, Bhanumati hides behind the curtains. Keshav along with Koki arrive next searching for his mother-in-law. Chintu suddenly spots a pair of slippers at the bottom of the curtain. Keshav tiptoes to the curtain and flashes it open. The elders are caught red-handed!

: Prema Shalini plans to shift to the 'Bhooth Bungalow'
Keshav learns from Prema that one of Sharma's friends promised to show her a bungalow for her to shift. Mr. Sethia, Sharma's friend, visits Keshav's office and invites Prema Shalini over to the office while Keshav's rather small romantic dream-life was coming to an end. He was going to be parted from his darling Prema Shalini forever. In tears of sorrow he asks Gokhale to help him out. So both of them together go meet Sethia at the office lobby and try to dissuade him from selling the bungalow. Sethia tells them that he can do nothing since Prema is actually not paying for the house but his friend Mr. Sharma, who plans to give the bungalow to Prema as a present. Upset by this, Keshav personally goes to understand the reason for her leaving his neighbourhood when she tells him rather braggingly that after all a big star like her had to move on someday to big and better things. Keshav is deepened with sorrow. Gokhale thinks out an idea to help his dear friend. He tells Keshav to announce to Prema that the bungalow she was going to live in was haunted! However, Prema is hardly deterred by this 'ghost theory'. But Gokhale ensures Keshav that he will find means to make her flee from the bungalow when she goes to visit it. Raghu, the bungalow's creepy caretaker, meanwhile is being told by Sethia to stay locked inside without disturbing or intruding his new occupant's visit. Things become creepy as soon as Prema arrives near the gate. She is surprised that the person who opened the gate suddenly vanishes before her very own eyes. Keshav arrives just in time to warn her once again but instead remains adamant and asks Keshav to accompany her into the bungalow. She then meets Sethia and all of them start looking around the house. That is when wierd things begin to happen. A door opens silently and on its own. Keshav tries to instill fear into Prema but Sethia explains that it must be the wind which is playing around the house. Sethia then tries to get rid of Keshav for a while by sending him to fetch plates. On the way Keshav meets Gokhale, the mastermind behind the 'strange door'. Satisfied that everything is being controlled by his dear friend, he comes running out saying that he watched strange phenomena occur front of his very own eyes in the kitchen. Slowly things seem to prove Keshav's 'haunted theory' when they themselves witness things happen. Things like lights suddenly going out, a candle floating towards them, a potrait on the wall shaking vigorously and a chair moving around the house on its own, were enough to confirm an exitence of an evil spirit. Keshav happy with the way things were going meets Gokhale who was about to enact another role in a vampire's mask and before they could turn out more plans of petrifying Prema they themselves witness a statue moving on its own. Keshav asks Gokhale how was he doing it but Gokhale says this was not any of his doing. Suddenly a vampire appears in front of them and terrify them out of their wits. Another female vampire appears and picks a fight with the vampire and thus making these both extremely petrified who run for their lives towards Sethia and Prema. When they reach them under the staircase, vessels start rolling down and for the first time Prema Shalini begins to accept that there is something wrong with the house. She flees. Keshav and Gokhale too start running behind her when Raghu meets them. They warn him but he tells them that the evil spirits lurking are no one but his own relatives who are living in the bungalow and it was just an act to ensure that they continued to live peacefully without the owner Sethia interefering and bringing other people to occupy the bungalow. Keshav and Gokhale are happy to hear that their plan worked and also the vampires were fake.

Meanwhile Chakraborty Dada comes to her house and warns her that she would be playing heroine to the new hero Arun Kumar who was related to the producer of the film.

When the producer hears of this he does not accept her resignation and threatens of filing a case against her if ever she leaves. Prema is distressed. Dada offers Prema a plan. The plan was that she would pretend as if she's pregnant in real life and that way she would not be fit to play heroine in the film. The plan is set about.

Episode 18 (24/03/2009)
: Keshav's promotion and transfer
Keshav is excited about his interview where he is expected to receive a promotion. The excitement is in the air even at office. Everyone is waiting with bated breath. Interview goes well and Keshav successfully passes. He is promoted. Now here comes the catch which Sharma drops on Keshav. Along with the promotion Keshav is appointed as factory manager and as per rules of the company he would have to shift to the house opposite the factory meant for that designation and would have to leave his present flat. Actually Keshav is not yet aware that this was a plan designed by his boss to get Keshav away from the flat and occupy it himself and be the neighbour of Prema Shalini. Keshav is distraught. Now he is in a fix: if he accepts the promotion he will have to leave Prema Shalini forever and if he declines the promotion he will continue to remain the neighbour of Prema Shalini but that would mean losing the opportunity for a better life. Keshav is not the only person upset by this, even Dilruba is. He pleads to Koki to not leave the flat, but to no avail since Keshav himself is unable to do anything. Gokhale gives Keshav a plan. He tells him that he can reverse the situation if Keshav acted 'notoriously' at office. So Keshav first takes on his own colleagues where he teases Ms. Joshi, tries to lure Gloria and abuses Bombaywala and IBM Lakshmi. All upset with his new behaviour complain to their boss. The boss however knows why Keshav is doing this and remains silent. So Gokhale's plan was not successful. Sharma finally tells them why he is so keen to send Keshav away from the flat; because he was going to occupy it soon. Gokhale once more gives him an idea of where Keshav can benefit both ways: promotion along with same flat. Gokhale decides to hatch up a plan where Prema Shalini would be vacating the flat to a place opposite that of the factory just beside Keshav's new home. The plan is set into play. A real estate agent along with the house owner (Gokhale in disguise) come to Prema's place and invite her with a very reasonable offer of exchanging their present flat with that of a private bungalow. He convinces them of the rich deal. Sharma is meanwhile preparing for getting his stuff shifted to the flat when he suddenly learns of Prema's deal of exchanging the flat with that of the bungalow opposite the factory. He gets it confirmed from Dilruba too and immediately cancels the shifting to the flat and resumes shifting to the new bungalow where Keshav was supposed to go. The tables have turned here with Gokhale's fantastic idea! He calls on Keshav and hands over the flat keys back to Keshav. Keshav rather diplomatically questions the reason when Sharma tells him that he can remain in the same flat and have the promotion too. Later Prema gets a phone call from the estate agent and is shocked to know that the house owner was not genuine. Prema and Dilruba have to now remain in the same flat too. Keshav Kulkarni is a happy man.
