Kahe Naa Kahe was an Indian soap opera. It was telecast on channel 9X. Kahe Naa Kahe is the story of Kinjal, an ordinary small-town girl with extraordinary dreams. The engrossing drama series marked the launch of 9X’s prime time programming on November 12, 2007.
The story focuses on Kinjal, a girl with a conservative father from a small-town background. Like other girls her age, Kinjal dreams of love and marriage but also wants to prove herself as an individual. Above all, she lives for her family. Kinjal’s progressive mother Urmila is aware of her daughter’s views and gives her unending support. Kinjal has four brothers and a father who thinks that while his sons can do no good, his daughter can do no wrong. When faced with financial problems, Kinjal goes against her father's wishes and starts working. Her father is unaware of this. Kinjal's best friend is Neena, who is a fashion model. Despite having different dreams and ambitions, Kinjal and Neena are best friends and tightly hold on to their friendship.
Kanav is a young, dynamic, self-made businessman. He acts with a lot of arrogance. He hates his father because the latter betrayed his first wife, Kanav's mother, and married her younger sister. Neena meets Kanav and gets interested in him, though he doesn't like her.
Kinjal's father learns that she is working. He is angry, but his family convinces him to allow it. He agrees with much difficulty. Kanav and Kinjal meet. They have many unpleasant encounters and start to dislike each other. But destiny has marked Kinjal and Kanav for each other, and they accidentally go through the rituals of marriage, though they don't know about it. Kanav unknowingly throws vermilion on Kinjal's forehead and they take rounds of the bonfire on the festival of Lohri.
Later, Kanav decides to become a father. It is part of a complicated plan to defeat his step-mother and step-brother in a battle of succession. However, because of his bitter family history, he has no faith in love or marriage. So, he decides to hire a surrogate mother who will give birth to his child without coming in contact with him. In a strange twist of fate, through a mistake made at the hospital, it is Kinjal who is accidentally impregnated with Kanav's child. Kinjal's whole life turns upside down when her pregnancy is discovered. Neither her family members nor other people are willing to believe her protestations of innocence.
In the end, after many complications and conflicts, Kinjal and Kanav get married, to live happily ever after with their little daughter.
