Omkara-Gauri "RiKara" love storyEdit

Circumstances forced Omkara Singh Oberoi to despise the idea of love and made him distant from the very relationships he once used to cherish, because of traumatic past experiences; due to his father, Tej's affair with his secretary, Svetlana and the betrayal of Om's mother, Jhanvi and due to his experience of being fooled easily by women who hurt his emotions. Then, Gauri Kumari Sharma enters his life, whom he looks down upon as an opportunistic, greedy and characterless girl while in reality, Gauri is a caring girl who values relationships and is devoted to Lord Shiva. Under unforeseen circumstances, both get married; but due to uncleared misunderstandings between them, Omkara develops a deep hatred for Gauri and leaves her right after marriage, subsequently, Gauri, in Chulbul's disguise enters Omkara's home - the Oberoi Mansion and during her time as a domestic help there, she grows very close to him and also plays an active role in making Omkara's mission to expose Svetlana and to get rid of her from their lives, a success, meanwhile, Kaali Thakur, the local landowner and don of Bareilly returns to Gauri's life seeking revenge as Gauri had left him at the altar. Kaali Thakur and Svetlana team up, and manipulate Tej against Jhanvi and Omkara. However, Gauri (as Chulbul) with help from Rudra and Bua Maa (Dolly Oberoi) saves the day.

After finally getting rid of Svetlana and Kaali, Gauri has to face Omkara's wrath as he gets to know her true identity, despite Omkara wanting to throw Gauri out of his life, Gauri still stands by his side, sacrificing her self-pride, to protect Omkara's life from Bua Maa (his aunt) whose sweet gestures were all pretend as she seeks vengeance for her son, Ratan's accidental death when he was a child and was trying to save Om from drowning, Gauri exposes Bua Maa. Gauri decides to leave Omkara who by now has developed a soft corner for Gauri and learning from his previous mistakes; decides to give their relationship another chance. This marks the end of Dil Boley Oberoi, and Omkara and Gauri's story continued in Ishqbaaaz, where they have to face more hurdles; due to misunderstandings and mistrust in their relationship before finally realizing their feelings for each other.

Rudra-Saumya "RuMya" love storyEdit

Dil Boley Oberoi also marks the continuation of Rudra and Saumya's relationship, initially seen in Ishqbaaaz, where it was seen that Rudra's antics, and his arrogance and ego towards Saumya had already put a dent in their relationship. Despite Saumya's repeated efforts to save their drowning relationship, Rudra (wrongfully) holds her responsible for the growing tension between his father, Tej and his older brother, Omkara and for the other problems of his family, leaving Saumya devastated. Their paths cross again when they are taking the same flight to a mutual friend's engagement. The flight's hijacking leads Saumya and Rudra to work together to save the plane from crashing, but their differences remain and Saumya realizes that it is high time they ended things. She visits him for the last time and tells him that they are better off as friends. She then leaves for Australia to pursue higher studies after parting on good terms with Rudra.but she returns to the oberoi mansion and is later discovered to be evil. The life story of rudra then takes a turn when he meets Bhavya pratab Rathore a police officer who came on a secret mission. While rudra takes interest in Bhavya she was planning to use rudra as her defender but eventually both started having feelings for each other. But the identity of Bhavya to be a police officer was not revealed to rudra yet and according to him bhavya was a shy, sweet, belonging to a low thinking society but as they started their mission and faced many herdels eventually bhavya's identity was revealed which leaves rudra shattered and started showing his anger and sadness with Bhavya.

Rest of their story is continued in ishqbaaz.

Speaking about introducing a spin-off of Ishqbaaaz, lead actor Kunal Jaisingh said, "Spin-offs" as a trend have come to India now. It has always been there in the west. "Ishqbaaaz" had three stories running together and just 20 minutes couldn't do justice to all three. That's how the idea of "Dil Boley Oberoi" came. The show came through beautifully. And it was of course amazing to have my own story and see my character grow.”[9]
