Khanak (Yashashri Masurkar) is a simple, spirited young woman hailing from a small village named Dhulwad in Bhuj, (Gujarat), newly married to her sweetheart, Suraj (Harpreet Singh). In a tragic accident, Suraj is killed. The man who caused Suraj's death is Shantanu Khandelwal (Karan Tacker), the younger son of a business tycoon called Sunil Khandelwal (Aliraza Namdar). Under pressure from the village council (panchayat) of Dhulwadi, Shantanu marries Khanak and takes her to his home in the city. Khanak struggles to adjust to the unfamiliar environment, while Shantanu learns to accept his responsibilities. Meanwhile, Shantanu's arrogant mother Madhavi (Rushali Arora) and sister-in-law Khushboo (Khushboo Grewal) conspire to separate him from Khanak. They fail in their attempts as Shantanu and Khanak eventually fall in love with one another. How Khanak becomes a loved member of the family despite it all, and love blossoms between her and Shantanu form the crux of the story.
