It’s a tug of war 

Jennifer Winget After the smashing and clashing at the basketball court, Dill Mill Gayye produced by Cinevistaas, continues with a new twist. Dr Siddhant Modi (Karan Wahi) and Dr Riddhima Gupta (Jennifer Winget) have devised new plans to make the other’s life miserable.

Siddhant disobeys Riddhima’s orders and takes his patient Tamana out of Sanjeevani. Riddhima does not approve and just when she is about to take action, Siddhant kidnaps her. This leads to a series of accusations and misunderstandings; finally Riddhima has no choice but to get the police involved.

Siddhant finds the humiliation unbearable so he clicks Riddhima’s pictures with him when she is asleep and blackmails her. Everyone in Sanjeevani Hospital is confused and scandalised seeing the pictures. Riddhima files a complaint against Siddhant for his act but eventually withdraws the case because she has something else in mind to make him repent his actions. Tune into Dill Mill Gayye from Monday to Friday at 8 pm on Star One.
