Many shots of the beautiful garden are shown. He holds her from behind. She again moves away from him. Though she is supposed not to show him her face, she is not very perfect in that. The director has allowed some imperfect shots. A couple of herons are shown playing with each other on a tree. She falls down covering her face. He pulls her up and tries to see her face.

She playfully pinches his nose and rapidly moves away. He moves closer to her and she turns to place her head on his chest. He lifts her face finally to look at it. She covers her face blushing. The video ends with Dharmendra pulling Nutan’s sari from her.
