Dharampatni (English: Dutiful Wife) was an Indian soap opera on Imagine TV. This serial is jointly produced by DJ's Creative Unit and Endemol India. It replaced the slot of the show Looteri Dulhan and started on 16 August 2011 at 9.30pm (8:00pm uae time) Monday–Thursday. Extraordinarily charming and heart-throb of girls' worldwide Harshad Chopra and super sweet and adorable Aasiya Kazi are the main leads, portraying the characters of Mohan and Kastur. Even though the show is supposed to go off air soon, their real, simple, subtle yet undefinable and magical chemistry is loved by a huge number of people around the world.
The story is about Mohan who is sent abroad at a young age and returns after completing his studies. When he returns, he is completely changed, especially in the aspects of his behaviour and ideologies which will be different from the others. This change will make the character look grey. There will be situations when his thought process counters his family, but the character is not completely grey. Later, because of his personal financial issues and family pressure, he marries a Gujrati girl Kastur, who is totally opposite of him in case of ideologies, traditions and culture. Mohan respects her, appreciates her and tries to fulfill his responsibilities towards her. However he doesn't love her yet but slowly as the time passes by, he understands her value as his wife and begins to love her truly.
His wife, on the other hand, is very righteous towards him and always puts him first. She fulfills all her duties as his wife and cares for him immensely. She is a woman who will do anything for her husband's and family's well-being and happiness. Although he doesn't love her in the beginning, she is still very loyal and passionate about him and treats him like a god, and when she realizes that her husband has started to love her, she is expecting him to confess about it.
Kastoor's mother-in-law (as known as Saroj) did not want her son Mohan,to get married to her. Later on during the show, she starts to find out what a dutiful daughter-in-law (Kastoor) is.
