Sonia lives with her five younger sisters and runs a fancy dress store. After their parents died, Sonia took the responsibility of her sisters. As a result, she has decided to first marry off her sisters and then find someone for herself. The dress store receives an order from leading textile designer Ratna Roy to decorate her house for a festival. Ratna has a son Raghav. A series of misunderstandings leads Sonia's sisters to think that Raghav is Sonia's boyfriend. Pestered by her sisters, Sonia gives in and tells them that his name is Bobby ji even though Raghav and Sonia don't know each other.
Weeks later, Raghav becomes an apprentice to Khan Chacha, who is an old friend of his lost father and also the owner of the restaurant adjacent to Sonia's store. The sisters soon run into Raghav and assume him to be Bobby ji and strike up a friendship with him. Eventually, Sonia reveals the truth to Raghav who promises to help her. With time, they fall in love and are married.
Sonia wins the hearts of Raghav's family members with her sense of duty and love towards everyone in his family. She promises his mother that she will go to any lengths to reunite the family with Raghav's estranged brother, Abhiman. Abhiman and Deepika, Sonia's younger sister, fall in love. On a day when Abhiman is confronted with the truth of his mother's sacrifices for the family, he becomes upset and leaves home but is chased by Sonia and Deepika. Lost in thought, when he is about to be hit by a car, Sonia sacrifices herself to save him and is killed in the accident leaving Raghav, his family, and her sisters heartbroken. Her death leads to Deepika breaking up with Abhiman and Raghav deciding to leave his own home and devote himself to caring for Sonia's sisters.
