When she comes home for holidays, she gets jealous of Sandhya for loving Ganesh and she wanted to grab him from her. Sireesha assures Sandhya that she will liaison the love of Sandhya between Ganesh and her and plays a double game by playing tricks on Ganesh to attract him. Meantime, the father of Sandhya and Sireesha gets transferred to Vizag. Sandhya asks Sireesha to tell Sandhya's love to Ganesh. Sireesha proposes to Ganesh and gets rejected.
