Plot

Arora sisters Preeta and Srishti leave their hometown Nasik after the death of their father, Raghuveer Arora, who before dying asked his daughters to go to Mumbai and reunite with their mother, Sarla. In the past, Raghuveer and Sarla separated, Sarla took charge of Pragya and Bulbul while Raghuveer took Preeta and Srishti with him.

Preeta meets the Luthra family and becomes a physiotherapist to their matriarch, Bani Luthra whose younger grandson Karan, a popular cricket star, shares an adversarial relationship with her while the elder grandson Rishabh, a successful business tycoon, shares a rather cordial relationship with her and slowly develops one-sided feelings for her.

After Rishabh and Sherlyn get engaged, Preeta realizes Sherlyn isn't the girl everyone thinks. She discovers that Sherlyn has a boyfriend and confides her doubts to Karan. Karan and Preeta join forces to save Rishabh from Sherlyn and their alliance slowly blossoms into friendship and then love. In the meantime, Preeta's engagement is fixed with Sherlyn's boyfriend, Prithvi Malhotra. Karan and Rishabh are both uneasy with Prithvi and soon realize that he isn't right for her. Karan and Preeta at the same time repeatedly attempt to expose Sherlyn while Karan and Rishabh try to convince Preeta and her family about Prithvi.

Despite all the efforts by Preeta to stop Rishabh and Sherlyn's wedding, they marry and a fuming Karan vows to take revenge on Preeta for ruining his brother's life. A few weeks later at Preeta's wedding with Prithvi, Karan orchestrates a groom swap and marries her without her knowledge. He convinces her and her family that he married Preeta out of love when it was all for revenge. That same night after their wedding, a hurt and angry Karan confronts Preeta confessing how much he hates her and leaves her on the road in the middle of the night. Later Karan reveals to his family that he married Preeta for revenge.

Karan's childhood friend Mahira Khanna arrives at the Luthra house since she is studying in the area. It is then shown that she has always loved Karan and wants to marry him. The Luthra family convince Karan to get engaged to Mahira. On Karan's wedding day, Preeta overhears Sherlyn and Mahira planning to kill Mahesh after the wedding as he knows their truth. She takes the same step as Karan and orchestrates a bride swap and marries Karan for a second time. Luthras are then angry and drag her out of the house. A stronger Preeta returns with a women's rights NGO and police, who side with Preeta and push the Luthras to accept her. Karan finally accepts Preeta as his wife. Gradually, they again develop feelings and trust for each other.

Akshay decides to marry Kritika for the sake of money for his failing business. Preeta suspects Akshay and plans to break the marriage, but in turn of events, Akshay cancels his marriage with Kritika and the Luthra family believes Preeta to be responsible. Kritika leaves the house. Later, Prithvi reaches the Luthra house with Kritika expressing her as his bride. Sherlyn breaks down learning the fact that Prithvi married Kritika, but he consoles Sherlyn by telling her that he just came to the Luthra house to destroy them. During all this drama, Akshay blackmails Kritika for some money in exchange for the intimate pics he gets off them. Preeta helps Kritika, however, during a struggle Akshay falls unconscious. The police arrest Preeta believing she killed Akshay. After much effort to prove Preeta innocent, Karan decides to take the blame and is arrested. The real killer is revealed to be Sherlyn. The judge releases Karan from jail as all allegations against him are proven false, however Sherlyn is still not found guilty and is not caught.

Sherlyn and Mahira decide to kill Preeta via a road accident through truck. However, Mahira mistakenly pushes a pregnant Sherlyn instead of Preeta onto the road and Sherlyn becomes the victim of that road accident. Doctors are able to save Sherlyn but the baby is aborted. Luthras, on learning the truth, expel Mahira from the house. A few days later, Kritika and Prithvi get married.

3 months later

The family rejoices upon learning that Preeta is expecting twins. Then Karan's college friend Sonakshi arrives to invite Luthra's for her wedding in Lonavala and Preeta visits the hospital but ends up finding out that she is not pregnant and is infertile. A heartbroken Preeta decides to hide the truth till Sonakshi's wedding ends. Preeta confesses to Karan that she isn't pregnant and can never conceive, which leaves Karan shocked and traumatized but he still supports and consoles Preeta. Sonakshi overhears their conversation, she assures them she'll not tell the truth to anyone and later takes them to a skilled gynaecologist who assures Preeta that there are chances of her conceiving and asks Preeta to start with the treatment after Sonakshi's wedding is over. As Sonakshi's wedding rituals commence, Rajat (Sonakshi's fiancé), breaks the wedding just a moment before filling her hairline. Rajat's uncle shows proof of Sonakshi delivering a daughter a few years earlier. Later Sonakshi confesses that Karan is the father of her child and reveals even more. Years earlier, while they were intoxicated after a party, Karan impregnated Sonakshi. While Karan forgot this, Sonakshi remembered. Sonakshi's father exclaims that the baby died soon after birth. After the family reaches Mumbai, Karan and Preeta resolve the situation and reconcile.

After knowing the truth that Preeta isn't pregnant, Kareena asks Preeta and Karan to adopt a child, to which they agree. They adopt a girl named Pihu. The next day, Sonakshi returns to the Luthra house and says she wants to meet her child who is in the Luthra house. Everyone learns that Pihu is Karan and Sonakshi's daughter. She was alive and was brought to an orphanage by Sonakshi's father, who had been lying to Sonakshi. The Luthra family allow her in the house due to her medical illness. Later Sonakshi and Sherlyn collaborate to spoil Preeta's life.

Rishabh is been told by Preeta that Sherlyn and Prithvi are having an extramarital affair. He confronts them and asks them to reveal the truth where they both deny the allegations on them. The next morning Rishabh finds Sherlyn's earring in Prithvi's blazer and confronts Sherlyn. Rishabh decides to end his relation with Sherlyn. Rishabh goes outside and gets drunk at a restaurant. He returns next morning and police suddenly arrives and arrests Rishabh for attempt to murder. Preeta, Karan, Srishti and Sameer team up to prove Rishabh innocent. Sandeep, who charged allegations on Rishabh for attempt of murder now collaborates with Prithvi to destroy Rishabh. Soon Preeta learns the truth and tries to convince Sandeep to utter the truth in court. Sandeep learns that Prithvi is just using him and won't give money in terms of consideration and then he agrees to speak the truth in court. Prithvi tries to kill Sandeep but fails and is exposed to the entire Luthra family. Prithvi is arrested for cheating and attempt to murder case. Prithvi now hates Preeta and wants to take a revenge from her in near future. Rishabh is proven innocent and is back home on Diwali.

Sonakshi again plots against Preeta and Pihu is hurt due to her planning but everyone, except Karan, blame Preeta for being irresponsible towards Pihu. Sonakshi reveals to Sherlyn that she gave fake reports to Preeta and made her realise that it is not possible for her to conceive. She always knew that Preeta could conceive so she decided to stay in the Luthra house so that she could give Preeta the medicine which will unknowingly stop Preeta from conceiving. Rishabh ends his relation with Sherlyn and leaves the house without his family knowing the truth. The next day, Sonakshi plans a trap for Preeta and Luthra family. She kidnaps Pihu through her personal hired goons and instigates all the family members against Preeta. Preeta somehow manages to save Pihu and takes her to a hospital where she gets to know from a doctor that Pihu is an orphan child whose mother died while giving birth to her. Preeta is shocked to know that Sonakshi was lying all along, and that Pihu is not Karan and Sonakshi's real daughter. Sonakshi hires a goon to kill Preeta and Pihu. He creates an accident, in which Pihu dies, and the entire Luthra family members blame Preeta for it and she is thrown out of house. Later, Sonakshi is kicked out of the house by Karan for forcing him to marry her. Preeta leaves for Bangalore with her grandmother.

2 years later

Preeta comes back home and starts working as a physiotherapist at a clinic and soon learns about what happened in the past two years in Mumbai. Prithvi, who was released from the jail has captured the Luthras' property and business, and Mahesh is suffering from mental illness. Now, Preeta is all set to oust Prithvi from the house and business, and decides to play a negative character in front of the Luthras.

Development

Talking about introducing a spinoff of a popular show on a primetime, Deepak Rajadhyaksha, the Deputy Business Head of Zee TV, says, "Zee TV has always strived to experiment with formats and bring its viewers unique and fresh content. After the success of Kasamh Se, Pavitra Rishta, Jodha Akbar, Kumkum Bhagya and Brahmarakshas, we are extremely happy to associate yet again with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms to bring an innovative narrative Kundali Bhagya. It introduces a new set of characters in an all-new world and will replace our hit primetime show, Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani, which was not only a strong differentiator but met with an overwhelming response and has had a glorious run of two years."[1]

On this, Kapoor said, "Over the last two decades, Balaji Telefilms in collaboration with Zee TV has created some great content. With our new show, Kundali Bhagya, we present a first-of-its-kind concept, an all-new interesting and engrossing show that emerges from the sub-plots of an already existing show. We will introduce Pragya's sisters Preeta and Shrishti and the Luthra brothers Karan and Rishabh. We’re hopeful that the audience will fall in love with each of these endearing characters as we have gone through hundreds of auditions before locking the impressive young talent. The writing for this show is extremely strong in terms of characterisation and the engaging screenplay should leave audiences hooked at the end of every episode."[1]

The production and airing of the show was halted indefinitely in late March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2] Because of the outbreak, the filming of television series and films was halted on 19 March 2020 and expected to resume on 1 April 2020 but could not and the series was last broadcast on 24 March 2020 when the remaining episodes were aired.[3][4][5] After three months, the production and filming of the series resumed on 29 June 2020 and broadcast to resume from 13 July 2020.[6][7][8]
