Jeet Saluja (Mudit Nayar) starts encountering a mysterious woman, always surrounded with fog and strange incidents begin to happen with him. Once his car breaks down and he gets a lift from this mysterious woman, whose face is hidden in the dark. He tries to talk to her but she remains mum. Odd occurrences begin to happen parallel to his meetings with her. Her identity is later revealed. Her name is Anamika (Simran Kaur) and she is an extremely beautiful lady who lives alone in a large bungalow, in the forests. Ever since Jeet met Anamika, she makes all those who do wrong to him encounter very bad circumstances. She is also shown to be an expert guitar player, being the owner of an old but expensive. She loves Jeet and Jeet is strangely attracted to her. He starts falling for Anamika. But when Jeet gets to know that a negative energy is trying to win him over he stops meeting Anamika and after a lot of confusions and conflicts realises his true love for Rano (Annie Gill), who is Jeet's best friend since childhood, and Rano and Jeet finally agree to marry. Soon, it is revealed that Anamika is a witch.
A heartbroken Anamika proceeds to seduce Jeet and then after hypnotising him, marries him on a lunar eclipse and takes him to her home. Rano tries to save Jeet from Anamika, but in vain. Jeet finally gets to know Anamika's truth and tries to escape and succeeds. He reaches his house but Anamika teleports him to her house but after a lot of struggle Jeet is finally reunited with his family. On the other hand Anamika committs suicide.
Finally after great difficulties Jeet and Rano get married. But strange incidents once again begin to happen as Anamika’s spirit returns and begins to haunt Rano and others. In the process to permanently remove Anamika's existence from the earth Rano herself dies, but her spirit has still not attained salvation and there is only one girl, Chhavi Gupta, who can see Rano’s spirit.
The story takes a leap. Jeet, who used to be a very good boxer, leaves boxing and starts working at his father's company and Chhavi is Jeet's secretary. Anamika on the other hand has returned as a human and has changed her name to Anamika Malhotra. As days pass Chhavi and Jeet come close to each other. But at the same time Jeet also comes close to Anamika. Jeet's family members realise that Chhavi and Jeet are getting closer and begin to get fond of having her around. Soon, Rano’s spirit informs Chhavi that the time has came for her to marry Jeet and after this Rano’s soul attains salvation. Jeet’s family finally decides to get Jeet and Chhavi married, unaware of the fact that Anamika and Jeet are slowly falling in love. Nevertheless, Jeet and Chhavi get married, much to Anamika's discontent. And soon after the wedding, Anamika starts living with Jeet and Chhavi and starts tormenting their lives, unbeknownst to the either of them. Her living with the family sparks conflicts between Jeet and Chhavi. To prevent her truth from getting revealed, Anamika even kills the family's watchman, a priest and Chhavi's brother, Abhay. She would also call Jeet every night to her room. Finally one day Chhavi comes to know about the relationship between Jeet and Anamika and she ousts Anamika. After this, Anamika deploys many tricks which make all family members to lose trust in Chhavi. They start believing that Chhavi performs black magic and they finally oust Chhavi and Anamika once again starts living with the family.
Chhavi finally succeeds in bringing out Anamika's truth in front of Jeet and his entire family. But Jeet is forced to go to Anamika's house after she abducts his mother, Pushpa. Pushpa is saved but with the price of Jeet's soul. Anamika with her powers makes her house disappear and buries Jeet, but later the family succeeds in finding Jeet's body, with the help of their pet dog. On the other hand Anamika manages to take Jeet to the netherworld. Chhavi, desperate to save Jeet, gives up her soul and goes to the netherworld. Meanwhile in netherworld Anamika puts Jeet in a trance and they copulate. Later Anamika's wish comes true, as she gets pregnant by Jeet. Chhavi also arrives in netherworld, and after facing many obstacles, she manages to get her hands on a trident, the only thing which could destroy Anamika. Anamika wishes to keep Jeet with her forever and to make this happen Jeet has to be transformed into one of them but Chhavi somehow confronts Anamika before she can transform Jeet. After a lot of struggle Jeet's trance finally ends. Anamika is tormented to see all this and Jeet stabs Anamika with the trident, taking away all her power and energy, thus she dies. And finally, the souls of Jeet and Chhavi return to their respective bodies. The duo regains consciousness and is reunited with their families. Later that night, Jeet and Chhavi consummate.
The story takes a leap of few months and it is revealed that Chhavi is two months pregnant. But suddenly the doorbell rings and on opening the door the family finds a baby girl on the doorstep. They look for the baby's parents but in vain. So they finally decide to keep the baby with them until they find her parents. Later it is revealed that the baby is none other than Anamika and Jeet’s baby, whose spirit was saved before Anamika died. But the family is oblivious to this fact and thus, Anamika's existence is not erased from this world, as Anamika's supernatural powers now reside in her baby. Thus the story ends on a scary note.
