Choti Bahu is the love saga of two soulmates Dev and Radhika.
Shastriji and Devki live in a Vrindavan, and they have two daughters, Radhika (Rubina Dilaik), who is an adopted child, and Vishakha Shashtri (Priyanka Tiwari). Radhika is simple and dutiful, whereas Vishakha wants to be an actress in Bollywood. She is headstrong and selfish. Vishakha and Radhika share a close bond. The Purohits are a well to do from Delhi and have their ancestral home in Vrindavan. They have two sons - Vivek and Dev (Avinash Sachdev). The Purohits have great expectations from Dev who falls in love with Radhika. But fate wills otherwise, and he thinks he marries Vishakha due to a confusion. The story takes a dramatic turn when Radhika enters Dev's house, and the stage is set for an unusual love triangle, with each character grappling with peculiar dilemmas.
Ruby Bhardwaj (Rubina Dilaik), a Brahmin by birth, was adopted and brought up by a family of weavers in a small town called Rawal. Dev (Avinash Sachdev), whose family has been in the service of Rajpurohits for generations, visits Rawal as a child on the occasion of Radhashtami.
