Plot summary[edit]

The show revolves around the protagonist Tulsi Virani (Smriti Irani), the ideal daughter of her father who falls in love with the grandson of Govardhan Virani rich business tycoon Mihir Virani (Amar Upadhyay/Ronit Roy) and marries him and becomes the ideal daughter-in-law of the family. The show also focuses on how she deals with daily life and with her mother-in-law Savita Virani (Apara Mehta). At first the family chooses Payal (Jaya Bhattacharya) for Mihir but then Mihir gets married to Tulsi when he realises that Payal is a gold digger and he actually loves Tulsi. Tulsi has a sister Kesar. Tulsi is nearest and loved to the grandmother of Mihir, Amba Virani (Sudha Shivpuri) affectionately called "Baa" by all family members. Tulsi gives birth to their first child Gautam. While she was pregnant with her second child it is revealed that her sister - in - law, wife of Mihir's real brother Kiran can never bear child. She decides to give them Gautam but in the turn of events Kiran and his wife escape with Gautam without letting anyone know about it and hence Tulsi loses her child. Subsequently she goes into labour and gives birth to a girl Shobha. Meanwhile Mihir's four cousins move ahead with their lives. Chirag (Hussain Kuwajerwala) who is in T.V. industry marries Prajakta much to his mother Daksha's(Ketki Dave) dislike but who remains to be Tulsi's confidante. While Sejal and Suhani get married and go to their matrimonial home. The other cousin Hemant (Shakti Anand) marries his assistant Pooja (Prachi Shah).

The show then takes a 20 years leap. It is shown that Tulsi and Mihir are now proud parents of a daughter Shobha and of a son Harsh. Sahil (Sandeep Baswana) and Tarun are sons of Hemant and Pooja. Sejal has divorced her husband and living in Virani mansion with her daughter Indu. Chirag is father of twin daughters Saavri and Baavri. Tulsi is still waiting for her eldest son Gautam. Meanwhile after some time Hemant and Pooja along with their son Tarun move to Australia while Sahil lives in Mumbai to take care of the family business. Chirag too shifted with his family to U.S.A when he gets a big offer. Suhani is happy in her matrimonial home. Thereafter Gautam returns while it is shown that Kiran has a daughter Kairshma. Gautam (Sumeet Sachdev) comes to know about his real parents and thus moves to Virani mansion but he is quite spoiled and always remained in conflict over business issues with his cousin Sahil. There after he pretends to love his family and having a change of heart but that was not so. Tulsi gets him engaged with a shy sweet girl Ganga (Shilpa Saklani) who is indebted to Virani family as they helped her a lot in raising her brother and being a support of her widow mother. Unknown to Tulsi, Gautam loves Teesha and Sahil and Ganga are in love, but for Tulsi's wish Sahil and Ganga decide to sacrifice their love and Gautam becomes more resentful of his mother. After some time he divorces her and gets her married to Sahil and he himself marries Teesha. The whole family is happy. Shobha is also married by then. As fate has it pregnant Teesha and Gautam meet with an accident and thus Teesha dies. Gautam is distraught and he again becomes violent and obstinate as opposed to being calm when Teesha was around. Then he marries Damini (Riva Bubber) just to irritate her but gradually falls in love with her. Then a time comes when Damini and Ganga both are pregnant but on janmashtami Ganga suffers a miscarriage and Damini gives one of her twin boys, Nakul to Ganga much to Gautam's dislike. Then it is revealed that Mayank suffers from some psychological disorder. Here Shobha is widowed while she is mother of a baby boy. Then it is revealed by Tulsi's sister Kesar that Harsh is her son not Tulsi's. She was pregnant with Harsh at the same time when Tulsi was expecting her third child. Kesar was bearing an illegitimate child who was not fathered by her husband. The father of the child was a criminal with whom she came in contact when her husband was out on his touring job. When both the ladies gave birth to baby boys at the very same time and when Kesar was holding Tulsi's baby in the nursery the father of her child Raj Malhotra came and misunderstood the baby in Kesar's arms to be his and fled with it . Thus helpless Kesar put her own baby as Tulsi's and told her that she had a miscarriage. Then she went on living life with her husband and two daughters. Thus hunt for Tulsi's son started and ended in Aditya Gujaral's house. Tulsi's son was now Ansh Gujaral (Akashdeep Saigal); son of famous business tycoon and criminal Aditya Gujaral who was an accomplice of Raj Malhotra. He before dying gave his son to Gujaral and he brought him as his son; his pride. Ansh was a spoiled brat who knows nothing but evil. Aditya Gujaral on coming to know abouth the truth agrees to give in Ansh but in the back stage he has conspired with Ansh to get hold of Virani's wealth and property. When Ansh comes he becomes obsessed with Nandini (Gauri Pradhan Tejwani) who is a friend of Karan (Hiten Tejwani). Karan is Mihir's son but not from Tulsi. His mother is Mandira Kapadia (Mandira Bedi/Achint Kaur) with whom Mihir had an extramarital affair while he lost his memory in Australia 20 years ago. Tulsi comes to know about this step son of hers but bravely decides to give him the name of his father and accepts him as her own son. Though reluctant at first Karan becomes devoted to Tulsi and values her more than his own mother. They share a precious bond that is rarely even seen between real mother and son. Thus though Nandini and Karan were in love, Karan sacrifices her for Tulsi's real son as a token of gratitude towards her. Ansh left no stone unturned in wooing her but could not turn her heart towards him. She married him as a duty to her lover and now in severe pain. Ansh on the other hand in eagerness to consummate the marriage raped Nandini brutally. Karan and Tulsi could not save her. Ansh gets framed in marital rape case with the help of a lawyer Meera Singhania (Subhaavi K.) who becomes friend of Tulsi. She develops feelings for Mihir but decided not to do anything about that. Ansh thus absconds and tries to kill Nandini in a fit of rage. Tulsi shoots him to save Nandini. Ansh dies and Tulsi goes on to suffer imprisonment of three years. Nandini meets with an accident while she was pregnant with Ansh's child. She delivers a girl, Bhoomi and herself goes into coma. Karan marries Nandini's friend Tanya (Rakshanda Khan) to take care of Bhoomi. Meanwhile Ganga delivers a baby boy; Lakshya. Three years pass. When Tanya comes to know of her pregnancy with Karan's child, Nandini comes out of coma. Karan and Nandini start living as couple and the truth of his marriage with Tanya is not revealed to her. Subsequently she comes to know about that and accepts Tanya and her child Manthan. However in a mysterious turn of events Aditya Gujaral dies and Karan takes the blame on him. Nandini comes forward and reveals that she is the actual murderer as he was trying to snatch Bhoomi from her. She goes on to serve life sentence while she was pregnant with Karan's child. It was revealed meanwhile that Ansh prior to coming in Viranis' life had a wife Shraddha and a son Eklavya. Shradha has died and Gautam adopts Eklavya. He is commanded all respect as the eldest son of the family. Meanwhile Ganga is ousted from house as Sahil engages in affair with Tripti (Suvarna Jha), his colleague and marries her and due to Meera's conspiracy. Meera is now madly in love with Mihir and joins hands with Mandira to throw Tulsi out from Mihir's life. Their conspiracy is overheard by Mihir's mother Savita. Mandira causes Savita's accident in which she is severely injured. She is taken to hospital by Tulsi where she urges Tulsi for her own mercy killing as she is unable to bear the pain of her injuries. Left with no choice, Tulsi switches off Savita's life support machine and Savita dies. Mihir and the entire family are away to attend a marriage. When they return, they find Savita dead. Meera puts the blame on Tulsi and instigates Mihir against her with fake proofs. Holding Tulsi responsible for his mother's death, Mihir throws Tulsi out of Virani House despite the protests of his family members. Tulsi decides to go to Haridwar but her bus meets with an accident in the way and she is believed to be dead. The Virani family members are shattered and hate Mihir holding him responsible for Tulsi's so death. Mihir falls into depression and becomes an alcoholic.

Show takes 20 years leap. Tulsi's grandchildren are now grown up. Meera has been living with Viranis for these years as Mihir's friend. Karan and Tanya are living as husband and wife all these years bringing up Bhoomi and Manthan. Nandini is missing from the prison and presumed to be dead. Ganga has strained all ties from the family and nobody has heard from her. Tulsi in fact is alive and is living in Haridwar taking care of her adopted daughter Krishna Tulsi ; her replica. Tulsi comes to Mumbai with Krishna Tulsi where she accidentally meets Mihir during community riots. Later, Meera's truth is exposed by Sahil and Ganga's son Lakshya (Pulkit Samrat) and she is arrested by Police. The guilt ridden Mihir apologizes Tulsi for his deeds and somehow convinces Tulsi to return back to Virani house. Bhoomi falls in love with Abir, a rich guy and their marriage is fixed. But Abir leaves Bhoomi on the day of marriage. Tulsi gets Bhoomi married to Joydeep, an orphan who has been adopted by Virani family much to Bhoomi's disapproval. Nandini is revealed to be alive. Karan is overjoyed to see Nandini alive which makes Tanya insecure. Nandini assures Tanya and sacrifices her love and happiness for the sake of Tanya who had brought up Nandini's daughter Bhoomi like her own. Krishna Tulsi aka KT and Lakshya fall in love with each other. Eklavya whose appearance resembles his father Ansh, is also in love with KT. Meanwhile KT is raped by someone. Tulsi suspects Manthan because of his adversity with KT but eventually it is revealed that mentally unstable Mayank (Gautam and Damini's son) had raped KT. Tulsi sends Mayank to mental asylum which earns her the hatred of her daughter-in-laws Damini and Tanya. Tripti instigates Damini and Tanya against Tulsi and the trio along with Eklavya plot to destroy Tulsi. Meanwhile the day of wedding of KT and Lakshya arrives. Eklavya takes Lakshya's place as groom and deceitfully marries KT locking Lakshya up in room. Damini, Tanya and Tripti falsely accuse Tulsi of planning this marriage and succeed in proving that Tulsi is insane. Tulsi is sent to mental asylum by Mihir where she is tormented by the doctors. Tulsi escapes from the asylum and boards a goods truck to return back but the truck meets with a fatal accident in which Tulsi is presumed dead much to the shock of Baa and Mihir. After six months,it is revealed that Tulsi had survived the accident but burnt her face and hence acquired a new apperance by Plastic Surgery. She (Gautami Kapoor) returns to Virani house but nobody believes that she is Tulsi. Slowly she proves her identity to her family members. Damini and Tanya realise their mistakes and apologize Tulsi. But then Tripti conspires to get hold of Virani's property and throws out the Viranis from their house. The entire Virani family unites to defeat Tripti and she is sent to jail on charges of fraud. The Viranis get their property back. Ganga and Sahil are reunited. After this Tanya move out of Karan and Nandini's lives for good and they are also reunited. Just when everything seems to be alright, Mandira reenters into Viranis' lives. It is now revealed that the woman living as Tulsi in Virani house is not the actual Tulsi but she is Juhi Thakral. She had been impersonating as Tulsi for sake of money and property. The real Tulsi (Smriti Irani) had lost her memory after the truck accident and had been living in an ashram for the previous one year. All this is revealed to be the game plan of Mandira who wants Mihir and his property. She had used Juhi as a ploy to get Mihir. Mihir finds it out and exposes Mandira and Juhi in front of the Viranis. An accident causes Tulsi to regain her memory. Mihir and Karan bring Tulsi back in house and reunites her with the family. The entire family is happy to see Tulsi back. Even after this, Tulsi deals with many trials and tribulations which she does successfully by not losing her faith in God and herself.

In the final episode, Parvati (Sakshi Tanwar) from Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii makes a special appearance and tells Tulsi that she has Tulsi's grandson "Parth" who is Karan and Nandini's long-lost son. She states that she has raised him and that she had told Baa to name the entire wealth after him.[10]
