’, the producers of the show recreated the character of ‘Ishi ma’ aka Divyanka Tripathi as a selfless and devoted mother.
Ishita manages to locate her missing children – Ruhi and Aditya – who were under Shagun’s (Anita Hassanandani) care at her hotel.

Even when the earthquake
struck the city and the entire hotel was reduced into mere pieces of rocks, Shagun was seen running here and there to save her life while Ishita was struggling to save her children’s lives.
While protecting her children from the danger that lay ahead, she sacrificed her life and got stuck under the rubble.
