Having voiced her disapproval over her sister Mishti's search for an arranged marriage, will Dipi accept Mishti's new man Parvan?
When Dipi first discovered her sister Mishti was searching for a husband through an arranged marriage website, she strongly disapproved.
And when Dipi hears Mishti's new man Parvan wants to meet the rest of the Sharma-Rebecchi family, she's worried things are getting serious too quickly and the pair are about to make a mistake by rushing into marriage.
Secretly hoping to put her sister off Parvan, crafty Dipi arranges improv comedy session at The Waterhole, thinking it won't be Parvan's scene at all. But both Mishti and Dipi are pleasantly surprised when Parvan steals the show with a rap about arranged marriage. Just as Dipi is starting to like Parvan, however, he publicly proposes to Mishti! Will she accept his whirlwind offer of marriage?
