Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna Hai was an Indian television series that aired on Sony Entertainment Television. The series premiered on 6 October 2009, concluded on 24 February 2010. Apparently, the TRPs of the show which were once skyrocketing then plunged to an all-time low. Thus the channel has decided to replace the show. The channel spent Rs. 50 million to promote the series on Indian news channels, such as Aaj Tak and STAR News. The series was created by Ekta Kapoor and was produced by her production company Balaji Telefilms.
Three sisters — Kanchan, Shamoli and Kakoon — arrive in Mumbai from their village in search of livelihood. They have to face terrible hardship. But they find help from Veeru, the chauffeur and protege of a powerful and wealthy lawyer named Kunal. Veeru gets jobs for Kanchan and Shamoli as maids in Kunal's home. Shamoli impresses Kunal with her presence of mind, and once saves him from a very difficult situation. The middle-aged Kunal, a confirmed bachelor for years, feels attracted to Shamoli and proposes to her. He does not realize that she and Veeru love each other. Unknown to them all, Kanchan also silently loves Veeru.
Kakoon has a major accident and needs expensive treatment at once. Only Kunal is in a position to help. Shamoli quickly decides to accept his proposal and marry him. This angers Veeru and Kanchan, who believe Shamoli has lost her head over Kunal's wealth. Rejected by her loved ones, Shamoli struggles to be accepted in her husband's elite social circle.
Shamoli's resolve is tested further when Veeru comes to live in Kunal's house, following a surprise revelation that the two men are long-lost cousins. Then, Kunal learns that Shamoli had married him only to save her little sister's life. He offers to set her free from their marriage. However, in the end, Shamoli chooses to stay with her husband. Kanchan and Shamoli reconcile with each other. Veeru accepts the fact that Shamoli is now Kunal's wife. Veeru then decides to get married to Kanchan.
