Laajo is a simpleton from a village, and Nikhil is a cool guy who is madly in love with his childhood sweetheart Ishana. Laajo becomes a second woman in Nikhil's life.[3]


Nikhil plans to celebrate his birthday in Sonbarsa where Nikhil's grandfather and aunt (bua) live. He plans to go with his childhood sweetheart Ishana but she refuses. There he meets a challenging but simple girl named Laajo who lives with her mother and sisters. Nikhil and Laajo clash playfully on several occasions. A number of circumstances lead Nikhil to unwillingly marry Laajo and bring her to the city with him.

Laajo struggles to fit in with Nikhil and his family, unaware of how things in a modern house work. Gradually, she tries to build an equation with him and his family.

Nikhil becomes annoyed with Laajo for not informing him about her trip to Sonbarsa. Kunal wishes to get engaged to Ishana. Nikhil reads Laajo's letter becoming dejected on learning that Laajo has left him so he can reunite with Ishana. He visits Sonbarsa and after many attempts, wins Laajo's heart. The two are deeply in love while Barkha has sworn to never let Laajo return to her house. Laajo becomes a star with the help of Sagar and Anjali. She takes up the stage name of Trishna. At last Barkha accepts Laajo. Ayesha marries Adhiraj.

The show ends on a happy note with Radha and LD coming to promote their show Mere Rang Mein Rangne Waali which replaced Gustakh Dil.
