The female and male protagonists were played by Nikita Dutta and Namik Paul, respectively. The plot revolves around two childhood friends and follows their struggles to unite as lovers once they grow up. The series title track was composed by the duo Sachin-Jigar and sung by Jubin Nautiyal.
The show was dubbed into Tamil as Nee Varuvai Ena (English: I'm Waiting for You) in 2017 and aired on Polimer TV. The production is followed by a rebooted sequel, Ek Duje Ke Vaaste 2, where Shravan and Suman are recharacterized as teenagers attending school, with a military background.
The show is set in Delhi and revolves around Shravan Malhotra and Suman Tiwari.
Suman comes from a close-knit family and has been brought up by her grandfather as a strong, independent, and self-respecting girl after her parents died in an accident. Shravan is a Malhotra, an elite family of two brothers – Ramnath and Lala ji, as well as their wives and sons – Shravan, Varun, and Pushkar. Suman's grandfather was a mentor to Shravan's father Ramnath and the two share a strong bond.
Growing up together, Shravan and Suman are separated when Shravan leaves for London to practice law after his parents, Nirmala and Ramnath, separate. He returns 10 years later and Suman discovers he has changed. She apologises to him for not being there for him but he rejects her. At a school reunion, he insults Suman, after which they part ways until Suman's house is in danger of being sold. Shravan fights the court case and wins and the two rekindle their friendship. Suman tries to reunite Shravan with his mother but he believes his father's side of the story. A possessive Ramnath becomes upset with Suman and successfully drives a wedge between Shravan and her.
Suman's cousin Preeti falls in love with Pushkar and they are able to convince their reluctant families to accept the union. Suman's grandfather suffers a heart attack and makes Suman promise him that she will marry Aditya, a family friend. Aditya, Shravan's foster brother who was brought up by Shravan's mother, becomes suspicious of Suman and Shravan's relationship after being incited by Shravan's aunt Kamini.
Following an instance of Aditya misbehaving with Suman, their wedding is called off. Sensing Suman's grandfather's condition, Shravan marries Suman. Over time, Ramnath realises how his lies have made Shravan a misogynist who mistreats the women in his life. Guilt-ridden, he comes clean to Shravan, who asks Suman for forgiveness. The two happily confess their love for each other and unite.
