Once Again) is a Hindi television romantic drama television series that aired from 26 August 2013 to 13 June 2015 on Star Plus.[3][4] It starred Avinash Sachdev and Shrenu Parikh as Shlok Agnihotri and Aastha Kirloskar.


Aastha Kirloskar is a middle-class, free-minded girl who values relationships and stands up for what is right. Shlok Agnihotri, on the other hand, is the son of a rich business man and believes in wealth more than in relationships.[5] He has a miserable past which makes him hate women, his own mother in particular. Shlok mistakenly believes Aastha to be responsible for the insult of his father and his family and decides to take revenge from her.

Shlok fakes love to Aastha and they get married. On their first night, Shlok reveals to Aastha that he didn't love her and only wanted to take revenge. He threatens her that if she reveals this to anyone he'd have her father framed in a case of corruption, revealing his actually abusive nature. Meanwhile Shlok's mother, Anjali, is very strict and attempts to transform Aastha into the daughter-in-law she wants - one who does only what she's told. When Aastha's father is arrested, she blames Shlok, leaves his home, and files for divorce. Shlok's father, Niranjan Agnihotri bribes the judge and Aastha is ordered to stay with Shlok for six months during which she realizes that he is a good person whose past has made him so arrogant. Wanting to change him, she discovers that he was in love with a girl named Swati , but they broke up and this led to Shlok's hatred and mistrust of all women. Aastha asks Anjali and Shlok's brother, Varad about Swati but they ask her to leave it alone. Enter Aditi, the daughter of a close friend of Niranjan's.

Aditi abducts Aastha while Shlok looks for her, the rest of the Agnihotri family discovers Aditi is the culprit. Shlok rescues Aastha just as Aditi is about to shoot her. Aditi finally reveals that she is Swati's sister, Gayatri and came for taking Revenge from Shlok as he is the reason for her sister's paralysed condition. Aastha and Shlok are shocked to see Swati. Swati passes away as her health deteriorates. Shlok realizes his true feelings for Aastha. They happily consummate their marriage.
