Plot edit

Meera Dhingra is a free-spirited, young independent woman who loves to play Kabaddi and does not want to be well-groomed for her future husband. She believes that a woman loses her natural traits after enrolling in a grooming school. However, her mother persistently pressurizes her to marry and shape herself into an ideal, well-groomed, upper-class wife; to fulfil her desire to see her daughter get married after constant proposal rejections. She believes that Meera can only be socially acceptable by changing herself by going to Soni Kudi Academy. However, Meera is strongly against the idea and believes that she should only marry someone who loves her the way she is.

Vivaan is a rich business tycoon and an NRI from London. He comes back to India on his sister Amaya's wish and searching for his long-lost mother, Pammi Kapoor, who left them as a child. Although he has a hatred for his biological mother; he secretly yearns to meet her. Vivaan's trust issues stem from his abandonment, and he promises himself never to marry. Vivaan does not believe in marriage, whereas Meera believes that she wants her life partner to love and understand her imperfections.

Meera's alliance is fixed with Sumair (Paramvir Cheema), but in a comedy of errors, she ends up meeting Vivaan at the airport. Their opinionated personalities clash, and they argue. It is later revealed that Vivaan is the landlord of Kapoor Mansion, of which the Dhingras are caretakers. While Vivaan and Amaya live in the same house, Meera's wedding preparations begin. While Vivaan believes Meera to be a gold digger, Meera hates Vivaan's egoistic personality. Meera secretly harbours the desire to play a qualifying kabaddi match on her wedding day. Vivaan initially befriends Meera to extract information about a bangle in her possession, which resembles his mother's, but they start caring for each other over time, unbeknownst to themselves. Sumair, who initially understands Meera's stand, is slowly revealed to be a man who has his own expectations from his wife-to-be. Meera complies for the sake of her family and, finding no support from her fiance, decides to groom herself. Vivaan and Meera, on the other hand, constantly bicker, but Vivaan ends up saving her from the sticky situations that she lands in owing to her wedding preparations. While Sumair is gradually shown to be a shallow-minded person, Vivaan comes across as a liberal, open-minded individual, albeit with his own imperfections.

Sumair falls in love with Meera's cousin Silky. He has no regard for Meera, and to pull himself out of the wedding, he makes a fake MMS clip of Meera and Vivaan Romancing and airs it on the wedding day. He manipulates Meera into believing that it was Vivaan who made the video for which she slaps Vivaan. Meera is abused and bad mouthed by village goons, but Vivaan saves her. They marry to save Meera's dignity. But they decide to divorce after their wedding as they're not happy. However, they decide to hide their impending divorce from Meera's family till the situation cools down. Meanwhile, Vivaan's stepmother and business partner Roma Kapoor (Shilpa Saklani) comes to live in Kapoor Mansion with the agenda of breaking the couple's relationship. However, Meera and Vivaan become friends and gradually start falling in love, but this irks Roma. She creates many misunderstandings between the couple and manipulates Vivaan, who already has contempt for his birth mother, believing that Pammi Kapoor wants to kill Amaya and him. Meera refuses to believe this, which becomes the root cause of clashes and separation. The divorce keeps coming up between them. Eventually, Pammi Kapoor is revealed as Soni Kudi's owner Mrs Singh. Roma is exposed, and all allegations against Pammi are quelled, and they reunite as one happy family.

Vivaan and Meera decide to express their love for each other, but unfortunately, happy times do not last long, and Pammi and Amaya are kidnapped. Vivaan is blackmailed, and a series of events lead to Pammi's death and Amaya being in a coma. Vivaan misunderstands Meera and blames her for interfering in the kidnapping mess and thus causing Pammi's death. Meera tries very hard to prove her innocence to Vivaan but no avail, and he decides to divorce her. He starts hating on Meera when she refuses to divorce him and troubles her to no end with harsh words and actions. But a series of events lead Meera and Vivaan to the alleged kidnapper, where Meera saves Vivaan from being shot at by taking the bullet herself. Vivaan's misunderstandings are cleared, and he tries to win back her love, berating himself for believing a wrong and contrived version of events. Unfortunately, Meera's father gives Meera the ultimatum to choose between himself and Vivaan. Meera chooses her father forcefully and is also hurt by Vivaan's past actions, but this does not stop Vivaan. He enters the Dhingra household as a cook to prove he will do anything for Meera. Meera's father creates many problems for Vivaan and continuously insults him. However, he puts up with it for Meera's sake. Finally, Meera's father finds a good groom for her, also his best friend's son. This marks the entry of Sunny into their lives.
