Rajnesh Mathur, a wealthy businessman has two daughters. Roma, the elder one is very competitive and has always been spoiled. Beautiful and shy, Reema is quite reserved and usually lets Roma take the spotlight. Both grow up to be entirely different, and fall in love with Ravi Saxena. Always the centre of attention, Roma catches his eye first. Reema is heartbroken but puts on a brave face.

Ravi and Roma's wedding is fixed. Unfortunately, Roma is ambitious to be star in a film and gets an offer on the marriage day. She accepts and leaves Ravi before their wedding. Furious, he marries Reema to save the honour of Mathurs. At first, they're quite uncomfortable. But Ravi eventually falls in love with Reema. Roma returns home in a rage and tells them they'll never be happy as she has been betrayed.

Determined to get Ravi back, Roma is willing to do anything including ruining Reema's life. She creates a lot of trouble like pretending to commit suicide etc. In the end, Reema gives in and leaves her house. Ravi furiously makes Roma understand what the difference is between her and Reema. Roma realises her mistake and reunites Ravi and Reema.
