As per the latest reports, Deepa will find Monitha and Nirupam at the temple performing a special ritual. Much to her dismay, Soundarya will be seen presiding over the ritual. This will leave Deepa shattered. Deepa is already on the verge of concluding that Karthik and Soundarya are keeping a grave secret from her. She is afraid that Soundarya and Karthik are doing injustice to her. Karthik is already reluctant to participate in the ritual as it means he has accepted Monitha as his wife and her child as his baby. Even Anand Rao is against Soundarya's decision to drag Monitha to the ritual just to save Karthik.
