He asks Maa-saheb to marry her son with a girl who he claims to have a good family background. But Maa-saaheb's younger son falls in love with Durga Mane (Ranjana) and marries her without consent of Maa-saaheb. Balasaheb thinks that Maa-saaheb will not allow her younger son and his wife in the house. But Durga insists that she has a right to stay in the house as any daughter-in-law has. Balasaheb is afraid that he won't be able to cheat Maa-saaheb in the presence of Durga who is morally good and has a strong personality. He convinces Maa-saaheb that Durga is her enemy and might even kill her to grab her property. Then he persuades Maa-saaheb to poison Durga. Accidentally the plan to kill Durga fails. Soon Maa-saaheb learns that the girl Balasaheb had tried to pass as a good one was actually not so good. This changes her opinion about Balasaheb.
