She has a passion for music and also is deeply and blindly in love with a very famous, young and dashing singer: Angad Khanna (Iqbal Khan), from Mumbai. She travels to Mumbai to join the Soul Music Academy which belongs to the Khannas in the hope of seeing Angad. Kripa and Angad's families are old family friends; she stays in Angad's farmhouse but is unable to see or meet him and is treated like dirt by his rich and arrogant family members except for his grandmother. One night Angad lands up drunk in the outhouse, stumbles upon Kripa, at that very moment is caught in a media fiasco which later is sorted out by the Khannas.
Kripa is crestfallen by their first meeting. Another night she sees Angad having a fling with a random girl in the outhouse. She hears Angad saying that he thinks "Love is a commodity" and only pretends that love is beautiful to preserve his public reputation. Kripa is in despair, since Angad was poles apart to the image of him in her head. She now hates him, refuses to acknowledge him when she officially gets to meet him. Than one day Kripa gets an offer to tryout for a concert with Angad. While she is rehearsing, Angad misbehaves with her. Kripa slaps him in outrage. Angad is furious and treats her disdainfully. Kripa refuses to do the concert but is forced into a contract by the Khannas. Kripa and Angad deeply hated each other during rehearsals, while their concert was a huge hit. Kripa befriends the Khanna business partner Prithvi Bose (Amit Tandon) who reciprocates her love, but they get into a love triangle: Prithvi loves Kripa, Prithvi's younger sister, Mishti Bose, loves Angad, but Angad comes to love Kripa as they get to know each other during their other meetings after the concert, mostly in form of a hateful interaction but, as they say, 'opposites attract'.
One night, Kripa and Prithvi's parents arranges for their engagement, but after Angad confesses his love to Kripa, she tells Prithvi she cannot marry him as she does not love him. There starts a beautiful love story between Angad and Kripa, but many people are upset with their relationship, like Naina Khanna (Angad's mother) Mishti and Prithvi. Naina hates Kripa because she does not belong to their high status: She plots to break them up. Naina shows Angad some false evidences indicating that Kripa and Prithvi are having an affair. This angers Angad, and he comes to believe that Kripa is a conniving girl out to get his money. He breaks all ties with Kripa, insults her, and gets engaged to Mishti. Kripa, hurt and pregnant with Angad's child, is depressed and decides to stay away from Angad. Prithvi and Angad's grandmother are her only support. Alia (Angad's cousin) enters and shows Angad how he was presented with false evidences. He leaves Mishti on the day of his wedding to go to Kripa. Meanwhile, Kripa has a miscarriage and loses her baby. Kripa decides to strengthen herself, and is out to avenge Angad for all the pains he gave her. Kripa vows to destroy Angad, and Angad silently agrees as he is madly in love with her and wants to redeem himself. He asks his best friend Josh to help Kripa become successful by accompanying her in the concerts, who himself is a famous rock singer. Kripa does become successful, Angad becomes a flop singer, and is considered unprofessional which he deliberately caused to himself so that Kripa can rise. One day, Josh tells Kripa everything, how Angad was lied to, and how he destroyed himself after realizing his mistake. Kripa forgives Angad and decides to help him rise to fame once again. However, she is engaged to Prithvi, who helped her in all her troubled times. Hence, she decides to marry Prithvi.
Angad starts to regain his success after doing a show with Kripa who herself is successful. Prithvi and Kripa's wedding preparations begins, but Josh tries out everything to make Kripa realize she should marry Angad and not Prithvi. Prithvi sacrifices, and breaks his engagement with Kripa. Angad and Kripa reunite, and one of Angad's ex-girlfriends named Simone comes back into city, but is now shown as the love interest of Prithvi. Few days after, Angad narrowly escapes someone's several attempts to kill him. Kripa suspects Josh, due to some staged evidences by the real culprit, she goes on to tell Angad, which creates differences between Josh & Angad, but they are cleared up soon. Josh finds out Prithvi was the one trying to kill Angad in his obsession with Kripa. Josh confronts Prithvi, but is murdered by him, unable to tell anyone about Prithvi's evil shades. Angad is accused & arrested for Josh's murder. Initially Kripa believes Angad is innocent and hires a lawyer named Shabbir Allywaliya (Rohit Bakshi) for Angad, who becomes his best friend afterwards. But then, Simone lies her how she had a one night stand with Angad. Kripa then believes Angad is untrustworthy, a liar, and testifies against him in court. Angad is heart broken, and sentenced to jail.
One year later, in Dubai, Kripa is married to Prithvi but did not consummate their marriage. Kripa repeatedly gets haunted by an Angad lookalike in Dubai, but no one believes her. Prithvi finds out from Mumbai Police that Angad met with an accident while transferring him to another jail, and is dead. Kripa is shattered as she never stopped loving Angad. But soon, Zaib, a dashing new singer enters their lives, who is Angad's lookalike. Everyone believes & tries to prove that Zaib is actually Angad, but instead he succeeds in proving he is Zaib. Although Zaib admits to Kripa that he is none other than Angad, who escaped from the staged accident with the help of Shabbir. Angad/Zaib starts mentally torturing Kripa in revenge for sending him to jail, as he was more hurt by Kripa not trusting him, than by the murder charge. In Mumbai, Angad/Zaib gets engaged to Mishti, only so that he can stay close to the Bose family and ruin Kripa's married life. After a number of clashes with each other, when Angad seems to be succeeding in breaking her marriage, Kripa retaliates by sleeping with her husband Prithvi in front of Angad.
