PlotEdit

It is the story of a woman who will go to any lengths to fight for her rights. Krishna (Arhaan Behll) belongs to the Thakur family known for their power in Allahabad. The Thakurs, headed by Krishna's father Sajjan Singh, are rooted deep in tradition and superstition. The Saxena family, however, are traditional but believe in progressive thinking and educating their daughters Pratigya (Pooja Gor) and Arushi (Avantika Hundal).[2] Krishna Thakur and Pratigya Saxena eventually fall in love despite seeming incompatible in the beginning.

Krishna is Pratigya's secret admirer and he forces her to marry him. To protect Pratigya, her brother Adarsh (Ankit Gera) marries Komal ( Parvati Sehgal), Krishna's sister. Pratigya is not satisfied with her marriage but over time she realizes Krishna's genuine love for her.

Krishna's brother, Shakti, causes his wife Kesar to lose her mental stability. As a result, Pratigya starts caring for Shakti and Kesar's son, Samar. Shakti marries Menka (Soni Singh) who wants to usurp the property of the Thakur family. Abhimanyu Singh Yadav (Mohit Malik), Sajjan Singh's illegitimate son, emerges and stakes claim to his rights and start planning against the family.

Meanwhile, in the Saxena household, Tanmay (Abhishek Rawat), Arushi's ex-husband, plans to kill Adarsh.

The show takes a leap when Pratigya and Krishna officially adopt Samar. The show ends with Pratigya gets pregnant and give birth to a baby girl and the whole family celebrates.
