In actuality, Yuvraj is faking love and wants to destroy Twinkle to take revenge on Leela for Anita and his sexual favours. Over Yuvraj, Twinkle chooses and marries Kunj. Yuvraj realises he is really in love with Twinkle now. Yuvraj tries to create problems in Twinkle's life and kill Kunj. Twinkle and Kunj fall in love and want a happy life. But Yuvraj remains a threat to them and keeps on interfering in their lives. Drawing strength from each other, Kunj and Twinkle fight Yuvraj's all intentions. Things take a turn when Twinkle saves his life when he falls into his own trap of killing her. Yuvraj changes the heart. Owing to hatred for Leela, Anita tries to ruin Twinkle's life by murdering Kunj. She gets him a shot. Kunj is missing and presumed dead. It later revealed that he never died and was saved by some fishermen. Presuming Kunj dead, Twinkle is shattered. After few months, she finds out she is pregnant with Kunj's child. Her family gets her married to Yuvraj fakely as he has changed, but Twinkle continues to love Kunj.

5 years laterEdit

Twinkle has suffered miscarriage and still lives with Yuvraj, unaware of his unconditional love for her. Kunj assumes the name Rocky Singh and is a successful boxer. Twinkle and Yuvraj suspect that Rocky might be Kunj. Kunj makes a fake MMS of Twinkle seducing him before she finally confronts him and narrates her sorrows after he presumably died. She tells him about her miscarriage, why she married Yuvraj, and their marriage is fake. Kunj breaks down and tries to win Twinkle's trust back. She is confused as she develops feelings for Yuvraj too and doesn’t want to leave him midway. She now spends some time alone, flees to Mussoorie and meets a carefree Sonia. Kunj and Yuvraj follow Twinkle, individually trying to win her heart. She decides to study further and demands some space. Yuvraj protectively keeps an eye on Twinkle so that she doesn’t get into any problem. Kunj gets admission into the college as a coach. Yuvraj disguises himself as Jassi and befriends Twinkle to stay close to her as he fears losing her more than ever because this time, his love was pure and more selfless than the previous time. As luck has it, Twinkle and Kunj get closer which Yuvraj and Pallavi unlike. Out of jealousy and his immense love for twinkle, Yuvraj begins plotting against Kunj and tries to instigate Twinkle against him. She professes her belief in Kunj, upsetting Yuvraj further. After many difficulties, Kunj and Twinkle decide to remarry, upsetting Pallavi and Yuvraj. Pallavi pretends to commit suicide to stop the wedding but is killed by her servants for money. Twinkle and Kunj are blamed for the murder, but Yuvraj and a girl named Simple Singh work to prove the couple's innocence and fall in love. The show ends with Kunj-Twinkle and Yuvraj-Simple's marriage and thus ends the saga of Yuvraj and Twinkle’s tashan-e-ishq though they end up with different people.
