Beintehaa is an Indian television drama show. The show launched on December 30, 2013. It airs on Colors TV and stars Preetika Rao, Harshad Arora, Naved Aslam, Rituraj Singh.  The show is a Muslim-based social background drama.
Beintehaa revolves around two cousins, Zain and Aaliya who get married. As kids, Zain and Aaliya constantly played pranks on each other. Now grown up, the story starts off with Aaliya mistaking Zain for her husband to-be, Zeeshan, whom she has yet to meet. Zain takes advantage of this to even the score of their childhood pranks. Set in the Muslim backdrop of Bhopal, the story follows their story through love, hate, and marriage.
Shabana's family, which consists of Aaliya, Ayat, and her husband, are Sufi Muslims living in Bhopal. Usmaan's (Shabana's older brother) family includes his wife Suraiya and their sons Fahad and Zain. Fahad has two wives Nafisa and Shazia. They live in Mumbai.
Aaliya is engaged to Zeeshan, a Saudi Arabian she hasn't met yet. Shabana asks Usmaan to send Zain to attend Aaliya's engagement in Usmaan's place. Zain comes to Bhopal and when Aaliya meets him, she doesn't know that he is her cousin because Zain and Aliya had not seen each other in long, and mistakes him for Zeeshan. Zain plays along, but once Aaliya discovers the truth, she calls fake police, where Zain confesses.
Seeking revenge at Aaliya's engagement for the police incident, Zain accidentally adds rat poison instead of laxative in the sweets given by in laws that are meant only for the bride. When Zeeshan is about to feed Aaliya the poisoned sweets, Zain saves Aaliya at the last minute by faking a faint. Later, Aaliya hears Zain's mistake and pranks Zain by adding laxative to his juice. Aaliya and Zain's bickering and pranks continue as Aaliya's wedding to Zeeshan nears.
The next day, Zain and Aaliya are returning from shopping where the police mistakes them for flirting in public. Zain convinces the inspector, who turns out to be Zeeshan's uncle, that Aaliya is his fiancee, to escape going to jail. The inspector then leaves, not knowing about Aaliya's engagement to Zeeshan.
Soon, Suraiya and family come to Bhopal. Zain puts his jacket around Aaliya since it is raining, which Suraiya notices, leading to an emotional scene later at Aaliya's home.
During a sangeet function where the theme is Mumbai versus Bhopal, Aaliya gets Zeeshan's permission to dance with Zain. During this performance the inspector (Zeeshan's uncle)sees this and tells Zeeshan's parents that they were couple he caught flirting in public earlier, which Suraiya overhears. During the performance, Aaliya's dupatta and Zain's kurta become tangled; they come closer in order to separate the clothing, which angers Suraiya and is photographed by many people. Zeeshan too feels annoyed, mistaking them to be in love.
During the day of the wedding, Zeeshan's family asks for dowry. Usmaan and Aliya's dad immediately refuse, leading to a drama. There Zeeshan's Uncle, the policeman, tells everyone that he caught Zain and Aliya flirting in public. Aliya refuses, and cancels the wedding. Zeeshan's family leaves the wedding hall.
Later Aliya tells Usmaan the whole story - how she had mistaken Zain as Zeeshan and Zain played along to play a prank. Usmaan, embarrassed of his son's behavior, announces that since it was Zain's mistake, he shall pay for it, and marry Aliya. Both, Zain and Aliya are not in favour of this, but had to say yes due to family pressure, but hate each other. The story continues as to how their emotions will change from hatred to love, since the story shows they are 'destined' to be together.
