In those letters, Lenin has spoken about his journey to find Nadira after she and her family shifted from Nagore. He describes his pain and grief over not knowing about her situation during those days, and also about his father who coaxed him to marry another girl (played by Anupama Kumar), who is now his wife and is very understanding. While on the way to the airport, Nadira requests Mahesh to let her talk to his mother.
