Gate-crashing Amrita's sister Preethi's hen night, Abdulla is introduced as Amrita's new boyfriend and Preethi is beyond excited to welcome him to the family. So much so that she invites, in fact insists, that he comes to the wedding. Franck is less than pleased that he isn't on the list, but he is determined to make an appearance too, in a bid to woo the family. Meanwhile Kathy, on notice from the coven to do away with her Abdulla problem, seeks out an old friend, yoga-loving Hindu vampire Rishi. When Abdulla realises what Franck is planning, he makes a mad dash to the wedding to try and intercept him before it's too late. Little does he know that Shafi's also turned up to sabotage what he thinks are Abdulla's nuptials, and everything goes haywire at a wedding.
