Plot edit

Pankhuri Gupta is a small town simple girl from Kullu. Aditya Kumar, a rich boy in Mumbai, has grown cynical about relationships, having seen his parents Avantika and Harish separated for 20 years. Purushottam Deewan (Aditya's maternal grandfather), a wealthy business tycoon, visits the Guptas in Kullu, determined to get Pankhuri married to Aditya.

Instead, Avantika fixes Aditya's engagement with the Mumbai-based Latika Bafna, who only wants the Deewans' money. Latika frames Aditya for taking advantage of her, but Pankhuri proves his innocence & rebukes Latika for her lies against Aditya. Aditya and Pankhuri become best friends. Pankhuri's parents fix Pankhuri's marriage to Shivam Mehta. Latika tries to ruin the wedding, prompting Shivam to leave. Aditya steps in and marries Pankhuri, and Avantika eventually accepts her as her daughter-in-law wholeheartedly after seeing her unconditional efforts to reunite her with her husband Harish. Rubel (Anuj's son) comes to India. He is a spoiled brat and despises Aditya as he believes he is too good and more emotionally attached to Purushottam and gets more things whatever he wants more than him and wants the family business and property. Rubel marries Latika in a contract marriage for the property. Sheela and Latika plan and successfully brainwash Anuj for property and make him acquire a power of attorney. They plot against Aditya and Pankhuri and get them ousted out of the Deewan mansion. They later fire Shanky. Kaira (Anuj's daughter) fears and lives in a misconception that Purushottam killed his wife Kaushalya. This misunderstanding is cleared after many complicated truths. At a young age, Aditya was accidentally responsible for the death of Kaushalya, who was in a coma. After learning the truth, Kaira apologises to Purushottam. The Deewans are reunited after many ups and downs.

Aditya is jailed, framed for possessing fake notes and illegal drugs, and is proven innocent after some time as Aditya relentlessly sticks to the truth that he didn't do anything unethical nor did he ever possess fake notes and illegal drugs. The wicked Manorama compels him to divorce Pankhuri to save Rubel, Aditya-Pankhuri gets divorced for a few days till the true colours of Manik, Manorama & Kapil are out, Manik and Manorama reform after Manorama becomes paralyzed due to an accident and realize all the wrongdoings they caused to everyone in the family, feels sorry for their wrongdoings Rubel divorces Latika, and falls in love with, and marries Payal.
