Junooniyat 21st July 2023 Written Episode Update

Ilahi and her family arrive at the engagement party, accompanied by Jordan. The crowd admires Ilahi's beauty as she enters the venue. Rasika notices Mahip playfully chasing Jordan around Ilahi, expressing his affection. Bebe comments on the genuine love between the couple. Meanwhile, Jahan also makes an appearance at the party and informs his father that he has arrived. The bride compliments Jordan on his wife's beauty, and Jahan exchanges pleasantries with his uncle, praising his elegant suit, a gift from his friend Mintu.

However, Jahan's uncle corrects him, mentioning that Mintu now goes by the name Nitin. Despite the warm interactions, Seerat teasingly questions Jahan about his admirers, to which he chuckles and dismisses the topic. The engagement ceremony commences, and a moment of surprise ensues when the ring slips from the girl's hand and lands near Jahan's feet. He retrieves the ring and returns it to the girl, attracting everyone's attention, including shock from the attendees and bewilderment from Jahan himself. Jordan wonders why Jahan is present in Chandigarh, while Ilahi appears uneasy, averting her gaze. Mahip, on the other hand, is concerned about Jahan's unexpected return, considering he thought he had put an end to him.

Amid the festivities, Dada ji warmly welcomes the guests, and the couple invites the Mehta family to join them on the stage for a photograph. Jordan, still feeling angered by Jahan's presence, insists on having a private conversation with Ilahi. Clasping her hand tightly, he pulls her aside. Jahan seizes the opportunity to greet Nitin, but Mahip interrupts and pulls him away. This sparks tension between Jordan and Ilahi, as he accuses her of being aware of Jahan's arrival in Chandigarh. The scene becomes increasingly dramatic, and the truth about their relationship unfolds.

Ilahi denies any prior knowledge of Jahan's return, claiming she hadn't seen him since their marriage. This revelation leads to a confrontation between Jahan and Mahip. Mahip taunts Jahan, suggesting he must have committed fraud like his father, a comment that hits a nerve with Jahan. He defends his father's innocence and warns Mahip not to mention his father's name disrespectfully. Jahan's uncle intervenes, admonishing Jahan for his behavior towards his wife and demanding respect for elders. In retaliation, Jahan accuses Ilahi of threatening him, leading to even more emotional tension among the guests.

As the situation becomes heated, Dada ji scolds Jordan for causing a scene and embarrassing the family. Ilahi tearfully pleads with Jordan to trust her and reiterates that she was unaware of Jahan's presence. Jordan leaves in anger, and Varun attempts to stop him. Jahan shares a few more words with his uncle, Inder, questioning his integrity and the broken promise to bring his father back to India.

Jahan eventually seeks blessings from Bebe and Dada ji, though they are hesitant due to the past actions of his father and the recent drama. Jahan remains steadfast, expressing hope that one day they will bless him. The episode ends with a tense moment as Jordan loses his temper, physically confronting Jahan. Ilahi intervenes to stop Jordan, but in the heat of the moment, she ends up slapping Jahan.
