PlotEdit

Jeevika and Manvi are two sisters who live in Rishikesh with their great-grandmother, grandmother, Beeji, uncle, aunt and their cousin, Dabbu. Jeevika is a simple schoolteacher, whose marriage has been arranged to Viren Vadhera, the son of a reputed family of lawyers in Chandigarh.

Manvi struggles with separating from her sister, when she is diagnosed with leukemia - a form of blood cancer, which the entire Vadhera family finds out about when she refuses to donate blood to Jeevika after an accident. Ultimately, a pregnant Jeevika aborts her child and donates her bone marrow to Manvi and saves her.

Viren's brother, an aspiring singer, Virat falls in love with Manvi, supports her through her cancer treatment and eventually marries her. Manvi also supports him through his developing independent career away from the Vadhera legacy.

The Vadheras, along with the sisters, are involved with a lot of antagonists due to their legal stature. A man poses as an imposter for their divorced aunt's deceased son. The sisters eventually expose his real identity and it is revealed that the whole fiasco was conspired by Viren's long time court nemesis, Jaiswal.

Manvi soon gets pregnant, while Jeevika and Viren opt for surrogacy through an estranged wife Vidhi. They are also shocked by their father's sudden entry as he is revealed to be alive and also terminally sick.

In the end, they accept him into their family and, the Chaudharys and Vadheras welcome Jeevika and Viren's daughter Mansi, and Manvi and Virat's daughter Jahnvi. Jeevika finds out she is pregnant and the sisters happily get together again.
