Vijay is now married to Mamta, a divorcee mother with her son Rishabh. The two also have three children of their own: Reeva and twins, Shanaya and Shivam. A prolific man, Ritwik thinks women are gold diggers as Geeta abandoned Vijaypath in past.

Dr. Palak Sharma, a middle-class girl chose a medical career after losing her brother due to consumption of incorrect medicines given by hospital.

Ritwik's bestfriend Rohit is engaged to Palak's bestfriend, Shweta(Setu). Palak returns to Delhi. Ritwik is set to marry Ananya, Rohit's sister. After knowing Palak's innocence in their past fight, he confesses his love for her but Manjeet, Vijay and Rishabh disapprove. Misunderstandings created by Vijay between the couple make them break up. Manjeet fixes Palak's wedding to Naman Kapoor. Ritwik realises the truth, wanting her back. They get married as Naman steps back.

Palak begins working for Vikrant Raheja, in fact Geeta and her second husband's son. Vijay tells Ritwik that Palak and Vikrant have an affair. Later he understands he is wrong about Palak. She meets Mamta who asks her to leave Ritwik. Suppressing her desire, Palak performs a false affair with Vikrant, leaving Ritwik heartbroken. Palak faints and turns out pregnant in hospital. Sacrificing her love for Ritwik's family, she lies to be pregnant with Vikrant's child.

Season 2 edit

After six years Shivam and Shanaya return home from London due to their mother's insistence. Mamta reveals to Shivam what she had done and that she will die from cancer in six months and asks him to bring back Palak. Palak live with her six-year-old twins, Gia and Dia who resemble Ritwik in a number of ways, and is struggling financially and only Setu knows her whereabouts that she is in Mussoorie. The Noon family is split, Vijaypath is sick and does not know of Mamta's cancer, Rishabh and wife left to Australia, Reeva has married Aman and has a daughter Samaira from Angad but despises the former and Ritwik focuses only on business and avoids everyone in the family. Shivam manages to get information about Palak from Setu and offers her job as physiotherapist for his father disguising himself as Sahil Gandhi however she fails to recognize him. She returns to Delhi with her children only to be surprised by the revelation that she works for the Noons. Ritwik, still angry with her, taunts her about her deceit till she breaks down and reveals that the twins are his children and not Vikraant's. Ritwik then emotionally blackmails Palak into giving him custody of the children. Shanaya and Reeva forgive her and asks her forgiveness after she saves them from marrying men who were after them for their money. She also exposes Rishabh and Shanaya's fiancé to Vijaypath by faking Vijaypath's death and presenting herself as greedy to obtain the Noon Mansion. Vijaypath understands that he has misunderstood her for years. Mamta reveals to Ritwik and family that she had asked Palak to fake her relation with Vikraant so Ritwik is not separated from his family. Guilt-ridden Ritwik decides to leave for London after asking Palak and children for forgiveness but Palak and family stops him. While returning, their car meets with an accident.

Season 3 edit

Palak escapes unharmed from the accident but Ritwik goes into coma for two years. Palak married Vikrant who had helped the family escape bankruptcy and cared for the twins as a father while everyone was disoriented after the incident but maintains a distance from him as she still loves Ritwik but Vikrant loves her and promises to wait for her till she can forget Ritwik. The females of the house, Mamta and Vijaypath have accepted Vikrant as a family member for what he did for the Noons but Shivam and other men of the house are against him. Right before they remove the life support, Ritwik regains consciousness but has forgotten everything that has happened for previous eight years including Palak and kids and tries to revert to how he was before he married Palak but can't understand why so much has changed. Setu and Rohit have problems since they have no time for each other except for looking after their three kids and Mamta has survived cancer. Ananya and Shivam are dating. All female members want Palak to remain with Vikrant while the male members try to reunite Ritwik and Palak. Ritwik seems to have feelings for Palak but believes that she is his physiotherapist and is happily married to Vikrant with two twins while Palak fears that if he is suddenly reminded of his past, he might again become comatose. They avoid each other while Ritwik tries to bring Vikrant and Palak close as asked of him by Mamta. Meanwhile, between all the confusion caused by the two groups supporting different causes, Vikrant asks Vijaypath and prepares to divorce Palak as soon as possible. Shanaya finds herself a prospective groom and the family decides to test him. While preparing for a surprise party to celebrate Setu and Rohit's wedding anniversary in the hope of solving the problems between them, Setu meets with an accident while an angry Rohit gets drunk and sleeps with an unknown girl he met at the bar. The next morning Palak and Ritwik discover what Rohit did and while trying to cover up for him, Vikrant misunderstands that Palak was cheating on him with Ritvik and leaves angrily after giving her the divorce papers despite Ritvik and Palak trying to convince him while Rohit and Setu learn about each other and Setu decides to divorce as well even though others try to cover up Rohit's cheating. Setu tries to commit suicide but is saved by Palak and Vikrant while Ritwik has an attack and remembers some of his past. Vikrant decides not divorce Palak and Ritvik pretends as though he still does not remember Palak as he feels that she and his daughters will be happier with Vikrant and have moved on. Palak understands this and confronts Ritwik but he refuses to accept the truth even though she tells him that she does not love Vikrant. Shivam and Ananya accept their relation in front of the family and their marriage is fixed along with Shanaya's. Vikrant starts to feel insecure about Palak and Reeva, who needs him to help in business, advises him to fake having a brain tumor and take Palak along with him to London to separate her from Ritwik but later when she is informed that Ritwik remembers everything and he is sacrificing his love, she feels guilty.
