Kavya goes to give his marriage invitation to Anjalis' house but he finds out that Anjali was getting married that day. Kavya reads the letter left for him by Anjali. Anjali wanted to share her feelings with him what she feels about him. Kavya understands that Anjali loves him. Kavya goes to stop Anjali's marriage but Anjali refuses to betray her fiancé's trust. Anjali's fiancé tells them that he is not marrying her because he knows Anjali does not love him but Kavya. Kavya and Anjali get married.

Kkavyanjali has completed its successful run for 1.5 years and got off-aired because of some conflict between Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms and Star Plus due to its change in time slot. The show had recorded the fifth highest TRP of Indian television i-e 19.7. The show ran almost one year but won many awards. The show got the awards in both categories i-e Technical and Programming for both Jury and Popularity. Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii has dropped in ratings in 2005, so Ekta Kapoor (producer) crossovered Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Kkavyanjali after which Kahaani saw a spike in its ratings. Anita Hassanandani charged 40 thousand per day at that time. The show was also shot in Hong Kong due to its popularity and high budget. Pritam charged 20 lakhs for its unique music composition.
