So, when their first son was just a toddler they used him in emotional blackmail and brought back old Ganga Ram and his wife Laxmi to their rich house. They handed the child to old grand parents and demolished their ancestral home "Ganga Laxmi" to make a skyscrapper. When Vijay and Sapna noticed a vicious growth of affection between their son Ravi and the grand parents, they scored a grand slam f lies by ousting Ganga Ram and Laxmi from their house and by telling Ravi - that the grand parents are dead. This shock made the child Ravi and adult. And then whatever happened was inevitable. Ravi one day discovered that his beloved grand parents were alive and were leading a life of penuary and utter misery. Ravi, thus came to know the story of torture, humiliation and betrayal which his parents had given to his grand parents.
