Ek Mutthi Aasmaan (International Title: Reach For The Stars) is an Indian family drama television show. This is a Hindi language show. Neha Pandey was in-charge of casting for this show. It aired on Zee TV from Monday to Friday in the evening.
The show was dubbed in English and aired on Zee World, DSTV channel: 166 and dubbed in Tamil as En Kanmani (My Lovely) on Polimer TV. It is currently still available in the original Hindi version for the audience on Zee5.com.
Ek Mutthi Aasmaan follows the story of Kalpana (Kalpi) Jadhav (Rachana Parulkar) and Raghav Singhania (Aashish Chaudhary), and how their paths cross in their journey of achieving their goals. The plot revolves around an ordinary girl who overcomes extraordinary hurdles in her life. Kalpana is the daughter of a domestic worker, Kamla Jadhav (Shilpa Shirodkar), and a mill worker, Vitthal Jadhav (Mohit Dagga). She struggles to fulfill her mother's dream, who works as a maid in a big Seth's(Kapoor) house, to become Memsahib. Kalpana selflessly loves her mother but is deprived of her love and attention because Kamla is always busy looking after Malik's Daughter; Pakhi Kapoor (Shirina Singh). However, she still wishes to fulfill her mother's dream by becoming successful.
On the other hand, Superman is a rich businessman whose mission is to take revenge on Kapoor, who murdered his father. Raghav has always been indebted to Kamla (Kalpi's mother) as she helped him to escape from Kapoor's, who had wanted to adopt him and take away all his wealth. He becomes attracted to Kalpi's sweet, simple and caring nature, and falls in love with her. Eventually, Kalpana recognizes Raghav's feelings and reciprocates. Raghav and Kalpana fall in love, and with the blessing of their parents, plan their wedding.
However, the story takes a major turn when, on the day of his wedding to Kalpi, Raghav gets married to Pakhi Kapoor. No marriage scene is shown much to the viewer's surprise. Eventually, Raghav realizes his mistake but cannot rectify it at that moment because of his long lost mother's (Gouri Singhania) pressure who wants revenge from Kapoor. In order to prove his love for Kalpi, he gets married to her by putting the sacred sindoor on her forehead in a temple with God's blessings.
Paakhi hired professionals to kidnap Kalpi and keep her in a remote location. Later, Raghav learns where Paakhi is hiding Kalpi and goes to save her. He escapes with Kalpi in an car chase. As with most car chases, they have minimal control over the car. The car drives off a cliff and blows up. Later, some fishermen find Kalpi in the river and take her to the hospital. Raghav is still missing. While in the hospital, Dhiraj Diwan (Siraj Mustafa) is depressed over his niece Suhana's (Asha Negi) death. When he hears how Kalpi's face has been burned and her memory has been lost, he requests the doctor to do plastic surgery on Kalpi to make her Suhana. The surgery is successful. Suhana gets flashbacks of her real family and the accident and doesn't believe she is really Suhana Diwan. Everyone convinces her she is nothing other than that. On the day Suhana is about to get married to Aryan (Kunal Varma), she realizes that she is Kalpi, and she gets married to Raghav instead.
