On the 16th episode of Beg, Borrow Steal, it’s the Independence wave that has gripped our contestant Aaliyah. After successfully completing her task at Rohar, Aaliyah is headed on the roof of a bus to Jalander when she gets an SMS form the crew. Her task now is to go to a place called “haveli” and perform the Gidda – a traditional Punjabi dance form. Receiving a lot of appreciation for the task from the crowd, the crew rewards Aaliyah with a 25km free ride whenever she might want to use it.

Pride and Patriotism come alive this Independence day on 'Beg Borrow Steal'
It’s the morning of the last day of her journey, Aaliyah is in Amritsar and she decides to visit one of the most revered places of worship, the Golden Temple. Completely moved by her experience, Aaliyah then decides to use the free ride in the crew’s car which she earned to visit the Wagah border. On reaching the Wagah border Aaliyah is overwhelmed with the patriotic spirit and joins the chorus of about 5000 in singing patriotic songs for the country. Aaliyah’s only wish there is to run to the edge of Pakistan with the Indian flag, something that no woman is allowed to do.

Would Aaliyah’s wish come true??? Will she be the only woman there allowed to run with the Indian flag?
