Somehow as few incidents happened, both Rahul and Sue came close to each other and believed one another to be a perfect match. This finally led to Twinky`s wedding which was ultimately approved by Mrs. Seth. Later on in the long-run Rahul and Sue became more intimate. Sue had few ups and downs in her life and therefore her behavior was quite atrocious towards some people. Rahul`s driver was one among all her disliked people. Rahul`s romance with Sue got disrupted due to few reasons. Rahul was informed about her character by one of his drunken friend at the bachelor`s party thrown by Bobby. Rahul was then forced to confess the truth to his mother who shattered badly, though Twinky`s wedding was all over.
