During Roopa's pregnancy, her younger sister Gunja (Sadhana Singh) comes to live with her. While there, she falls in love with Omkar's younger brother Chandan (Sachin).
Learning of their love, Roopa promises to help them marry. But, she dies in an accident; and nobody else knows about the love affair.
