Plot[edit]

The story narrates the journey of a young woman who has to find a way to her dreams and who unexpectedly finds a constant companion in the person she least expected it from: her traditional husband and his family.

Sandhya Kothari (Deepika Singh) is an ambitious, educated young woman, who pursues her dream of becoming an IPS officer. Sooraj Rathi (Anas Rashid) is a partially-educated, simple young master-confectioner, who's also the perfect son of the middle-class Rathi Family.

Sandhya's dreams and aspirations are destroyed when she loses her parents Arvind Kothari (Rakesh Kukreti) and Kanchan Kothari (Surbhi Tiwari) in a terrorist attack and her elder brother Ankur Kothari (Varun Khandelwal), planning to move abroad, fixes her marriage to Sooraj, a person, raised in a completely different environment and with different manners.

But Sooraj's strict and conservative mother, Santosh Rathi aka Bhabho (Neelu Vaghela) wants Sooraj's spouse and her daughter-in-law to be simple, not well-educated, with the excellent skills of a housewife. As it is not accepted for a woman to live alone in Indian society, Ankur has to lie about Sandhya's education level to ensure her settlement.

Sandhya has to give her college education and dreams of personal growth and independence up and accustom herself to a whole new family of strangers, while accepting her roles as a wife and a daughter-in-law of a traditional provincial Rajasthani joint family.

After Sandhya's truth of being educated and not knowing how to cook is revealed, Bhabho banishes her. However, Sooraj stands up for his wife and vows to teach her everything she has to know to establish herself as the daughter-in-law that Bhabho expects her to be.

Sandhya also starts caring for Sooraj and helps him in various situations, including an international confection competition in Singapore. Later, he helps her complete her studies and eventually convinces his mother to accept Sandhya for who she is and turns her into one of Sandhya's greatest supporters.

Sandhya faces great challenges in the IPS Academy, including a terrorist occupation, but with the help of the rest of the students, manages to stop the criminals, establishing herself as an extraordinary police officer. The story then focuses on Sandhya's career as a police officer, as she fights various criminals, including terrorist leader Rajkumar (Gaurav Sharma), while in the meantime, solving her various family problems as she struggles to balance between her professional duties and domestic responsibilities.

Together with Sooraj, she forms a deep relationship with underlying love, until a misunderstanding tears the couple apart. Sandhya moves to the United Kingdom to live with Ankur and his family, but with Bhabho's help, the misunderstanding is cleared up between her and Sooraj and they get back together.

Ankur also returns to India with his wife Ankita Kothari (Urmila Nimbalkar/Shubha Uplopwar) and little daughter, Bulbul Kothari, who is greatly eager of having a sibling. Ankita is pregnant for a 2nd time but suffers a miscarriage and is unable to conceive again. Sandhya and Sooraj, who are expecting twins, decide to give 1 baby away to Ankita but are hesitant.

Sandhya delivers twin sons, named Ved and Vansh. The infants are kidnapped in order to be sold out of Rajasthan. In the ensuing rescue actions, Ved is saved but Vansh succumbs to his death, leaving everybody shattered.

7 years later[edit]

Sandhya and Sooraj are living happily with their son Ved Rathi (Devyansh Tapuriah). After some twists and turns, the Rathis find out that Sandhya and Sooraj's other twin son Vansh Rathi (Ricky Patel) never died, but was raised by Ankur, who plotted the whole kidnapping fiasco, and Ankita. Sandhya cuts all ties with her brother, but lets him keep the child for the sake of her son Vansh's happiness.

Sandhya is appointed for an extremely jepardious mission, titled Mahabhali, to track a dangerous terrorist and defeat him on his own territory. Therefore, she has to leave her family and enact her own death in a train accident for the sake of the country's safety.

3 months later[edit]

Everybody in the family believe that Sandhya is dead. Sooraj (who was present at Sandhya's accident) has lost his mental stability due to the shock of witnessing his wife's death and refuses to believe she's gone. Bhabho now hates Sandhya as she holds her responsible for Sooraj's condition.

Now, Bhabho wants Sooraj to remarry to a girl, named Laalima Agarwal (Shefali Sharma), for whom she believes, is able to help him get better. Meanwhile, Sandhya is shown to be alive, struggling with the difficulties of Mahabhali Mission in an outlying Bengali village, under the name of Segarika Taas.

Later, Sandhya discovers that the terrorists are planning to force the government to capitulate, using nuclear weapons. She eventually manages to sabotage their plan but her true identity is exposed and the terrorists capture and almost torture her to death.

By the accident, Sooraj finds out Sandhya is indeed alive which restores his sanity. After lots of insisting, the police agrees to send Sooraj on the mision and help Sandhya. After many challenges, he rescues her, the leader of the terrorists is killed and the others arrested, and after successfully completing the mission, Sandhya and Sooraj return home safe and sound. However, Bhabho refuses to forgive Sandhya, who also faces a stiff competition in the face of Laalima, who falls in love with Sooraj, but Sooraj and Sandhya's love wins and Bhabho forgives her.

Later, Sooraj's youngest brother Mohit Rathi (Varun Jain) is shot to death after attempting to molest Laalima. The police suspect Laalima's brother Lokesh Agarwal (Akshay Batchu) but Bhabho confesses to the crime. With the help of women's rights activists, Sandhya bails her out which strengthens their mother-in-law and daughter-in-law bond.

The story later focuses on the latest addition to the Rathi Family: a Pakistani girl named Arzoo Khan (Prachi Tehlan). Bhabho hates Pakistan because of a tragic accident on the border which took her younger brother's life when they were children.

Not knowing Arzoo is from Pakistan, Bhabho fixes her alliance with her foster son, Aryan Rathi aka Chotu (Randeep Rai/Kunal Khosla). Initially, Sandhya suspects Arzoo of being a terrorist but later not only saves her from the terrible misunderstanding, but also helps her get accepted by Bhabho as her daughter-in-law.

Sooraj meets with an accident and is stuck in a wheelchair. Thus, he is unable to run his confectionary shop anymore and Sandhya decides to take it over, leaving her dreamed and hardly-achieved job in the police aside, much to Sooraj and the family's displeasure. She gets to know about her 2nd pregnancy and delivers a daughter. Overjoyed Sooraj overcomes his disability and is able to walk and run his shop again. The daughter is named Kanak which means "gold". Sandhya gets a proposal from the commissioner and decides to join the police again. There she meets IPS Arpita Khanna (Rishina Kandhari), who considers Sandhya as her rival at 1-st, but later becomes 1 of her best allies.

After many theme changes in the show (including the return of Rajkumar and Sandhya and Ankur's reconciliation), as well as challenges and adventures of Sandhya and her family, the story finally comes to the long-expected denouement. Vansh discovers the truth of his birth parents but hates them for giving him away.

4 terrorists take the residents of the Rathis' neighbourhood hostage, including them. Sandhya and Sooraj bravely rescue the civilians. Upon seeing his parents' selflesness and courage, Vansh forgives them and the family is reunited, but not for long. Sandhya and Sooraj unsuccessfully try to set a trap for the terrorists and to punish them, they kidnap Ved and Kanak.

The terrorist's leader makes Sandhya and Sooraj eat bomb pills to save Kanak. Eventually, the terrorists are arrested by Arpita, the police and the army but Sandhya and Sooraj are informed that the pills cannot be removed from their bodies and that they have 30 minutes before they explode.

They bid their farewell to their family and jump into the river before exploding. The show ends with Sandhya's mangalsutra and Sooraj's chain becoming entangled in the water before the setting Sun, highlighting that even death cannot separate them.
