Devki is a contemporary woman with aspirations but at the same time she has her roots intact. She is highly respected in the business circles and touted to be the next big thing, but she does not let this affect her virtues and principles. She is the exact opposite of the very powerful I.M. Virani. She threatens to overtake him with her business acumen and grounded nature. She married Vaibhav Virani to fulfill her grandfather's wishes but started falling in love with him after marriage. Her husband's love for the actress Sabina led her to sign the divorce papers. She was the one who broke the fake pride of I.M. Virani and made him a true man.
