It is the official remake of Zee Tamil's TV series Yaaradi Nee Mohini. It stars Shabir Ahluwalia as Mohan, Neeharika Roy as Radha and Manit Joura as Yug.[2]


Mohan's first wife, Tulsi, dies and their daughter, Gungun, considers him to be Tulsi's murderer. Meanwhile Radha is in love with Mohan and considers him as her inspiration. Tulsi's soul has not gotten salvation and she is wandering in the Trivedi house as a ghost; and she protects Gungun at every turn.

Mohan's stepmother, Kadambari, wants Moharn to remarry and she chooses her niece, Damini. Mohan agrees to marry Damini for the sake of Kadambari. Meanwhile, Radha saves Gungun's life and Radha stays at the Trivedi house as a guest.

Radha and Mohan start coming closer which makes Damini jealous. Kadambari and Damini learn about Tulsi's soul and they both try to imprison her with the help of Gurumaa, but all their efforts go in vain. Later, Gungun and Radha become good friends. In order to get Radha out of the Trivedi house, Damini accuses her of theft but Radha proves herself innocent. Later on, Radha's grandmother sets Radha's marriage to Hriday who plans to sell Radha after they get married. Mohan and Gungun grow closer while trying to stop Hriday and Radha's marriage. Gungun learns about Hriday's truth, he throws her into a borewell. Gungun is rescued by Radha and Mohan. Hriday is exposed but he manages to escape with the help of Damini, who continues to try to kill Radha and Gungun.

Kadambari notices that Radha has feelings for Mohan and tries to tell him, but Damini threatens her and tries to instigate her against Radha. Radha then begins to suspect Damini and tries to expose her but fails. On Mohan and Damini's wedding day, Damini causes misunderstandings between Radha and Mohan, causing Mohan to ask Radha to go back to her home. Tulsi then arrives and encourages her to stop the wedding. She dresses Radha as a bride. Radha then forcefully marries Mohan who promises to make her life hell. Slowly Mohan begins to fall for Radha. Radha then begins going to Mohan's office where she learns that Damini is responsible for Tulsi's death. She tries to expose Damini but fails causing another rift between her and Mohan.

Damini locks Radha in a freezer which nearly kills her. Mohan then manages to rescue her realising his feelings for her. After Radha recovers she does not reveal that it was Damini's doing, however Damini decides to now punish Mohan for falling for Radha. Meanwhile, Radha's estranged mother Gargi/Mandira visits Barsana and she reveals to Mohan why she abandoned Radha and Rameshwar. Gargi wanted to live a lavish life, so she built a new identity by fraudulently marrying another man. Radha overhears her conversation.

Damini tries to kill Gungun but fails as Radha protects her. Gungun then calls Radha her mother, Ramaa. Damini reminds Mohan of his planned divorce with Radha to which Mohan refuses and breaks his promise of marrying her. Mohan then plans to confess his feelings to Radha. Gungun finds Tulsi's letters, which were planted by Damini, blaming Radha for her death. Gungun stays away from Radha and together with Rahul and Tulsi's mother they file a case against Radha. Despite other family members believing these allegations, Mohan reveals to Radha that he believes she did not kill Tulsi. Mohan learns that Damini is working with Tulsi's brother. He then manages to make Gungun realise that Radha is innocent and Gungun apologises to her. In order to stop Mohan from saving Radha, Damini kidnaps him and the judge sentences Radha to death. With the help of Shakti and Dua, Radha is able to escape her execution and briefly reunites with her family. She then sets out to find Mohan. Damini then tries to kill Radha again but she outsmarts her and finds Mohan. Radha and Mohan briefly reunite and run away together before being intercepted by Damini. Mohan takes a bullet for Radha and asks her to run away.

After a period of events, Radha's innocence is revealed and she is dropped from the death sentence, which angers Damini and Kaveri. Radha returns to the Trivedi house with Mohan. Radha and Mohan decide to get married again, while Damini and her mother try to stop it, but they fail.

In order to forget the troubles that happened with Radha, Mohan and the family, they decide to go on vacation to the Maldives. Damini comes to know about this and decides to go with them. After two days of Radha and Mohan spending in the Maldives, Damini tries to kill Radha and causes her some problems, but also this time she fails to kill her thanks to Mohan.

Mohan and Radha decide with the family to return home, and when they board the plane and take off, they are surprised by the presence of a criminal gang trying to kill the passengers. Amid the passengers' fear, a gang member plants a bomb on the plane, which sparks news and media. But the police were able to arrest the criminals and dismantle the bomb in time.

Upon returning home, Tulsi's soul takes possession of Mohan's body, making Mohan do unnatural things. The family calls a priest to free Tulsi's soul from Mohan's body, but they are surprised when the priest tells them that Tulsi's soul will not leave Mohan's soul until she eliminates her killer, who is a member of the house.

Damini and her mother contact Gurumaa in order to eliminate Tulsi's spirit. She tells them that Tulsi's spirit possesses Mohan from time to time. Mohan sees Damini in a state of extreme fatigue and decides to take her to the hospital. Damini is surprised that Tulsi's spirit has taken over Mohan's body in order to kill her in the burning house where she was killed, but she manages to escape. Radha learns of Damini's communication with Gurumaa and decides to expose them. Radha begins to suspect that Gurumaa is Kadambari. The family decides to celebrate Damini's birthday, but in the middle of the party, Tulsi takes over Mohan and threatens her to confess that she was the one who killed her. Damini confesses that she was the one who killed Tulsi in front of the police and family. At the same time, Mohan and Radha admit that this was their plan to reveal the truth about Damini and that Tulsi never possessed Mohan. Before being arrested, Damini manages to escape and kidnap Gungun. Damini threatens Radha, but Radha summons Tulsi's spirit to help her save Gungun's life from Damini. Tulsi's spirit responds to her on the condition that she appears with the intention of killing her killer, who is Damini. Damini takes Gungun to the valley in order to kill her there, and Radha and Mohan follow her. During the attempt to kill her, the spirit of Tulsi appears and kills Damini and throws her from the valley and saves Gungun.

Tulsi feels that her real killer is still alive and is a family member. She tells Radha this before she disappears and asks Radha to be aware of her surroundings. Radha suspects that Tulsi's real killer is Gurumaa, so she goes to Tulsi's burned-out house in order to search for any clues. She finds Kadambari there and confesses to her that she herself is Gurumaa and the real killer of Tulsi. Kadambari decides to kill Radha by locking her in the burnt house and burning her. While Kadambari thinks that she has gotten rid of Radha, Radha discovers there that the bones of Tulsi's body are still there and have not been cremated in all these years. Kadambari is surprised when Radha returns home with the bones of Tulsi's body and threatens her.

Surprisingly, Tulsi walks in with Mohan at that moment. The family decide to hide the fact that Radha is married to Mohan. Tulsi makes outrageous demands to Mohan, even going as far as asking for Mohan to take Radha's mangalsutra off. However Gungun tells Mohan that he need to give Radha back the mangalsutra. Tulsi tries to commit suicide, but Radha believes that she is bluffing and dares her to jump. Tulsi ends up jumping off, which results in Gungun becomings angry with Radha. Radha tries to warn the family against the fake Tulsi, but they believe she is mentally ill and suggest she gets a checkup. It is revealed that Tulsi really had disappeared and the Tulsi in their house was none other than Damini, who is in cahoots with Kadambari. Vishwanath finds out about this and tries to warn the others, but Kadambari manipulates them into thinking Vishwanath was lying in behest of Radha.

Damini and Kadambari decide to oust Radha from Mohan's life. They make it seem like Radha threw Vishwanath off the balcony. Mohan finally believes that Radha is mentally ill and sends Radha to mental asylum. Damini and Kadambari then plan to get rid of Gungun by bringing her to wildlife sanctuary. However, Radha becomes aware of the plan and runs away to save Gungun. Damini tries to kill Gungun by throwing Gungun in front of the lion, but Radha manages to save her. Mohan also arrives there, but refuses to believe Radha, as Radha had slapped Kadambari. Mohan blames Radha for destroying his and his daughter's life. At her wit's end, Radha breaks her nupital chain and cuts all ties with Mohan. Radha leaves with the mental asylum workers.

7 years later[edit]

Radha is revealed to be living as Radhika Kohli in South Delhi as a radio host and is very successful. She is now married to a businessman named Yug Kohli, and Manan, her and Mohan’s son, considers Yug as his own father. Mohan and his family have also moved into the same city and live in Meera’s house. Gungun is a teenager now and she feels that irrespective of Radha and Mohan's personal issues, Radha should not have abandoned her, so she hates Radha. Gungun is now being taken care of by Meera, who is also Mohan’s businesses partner. Meera likes Mohan and Gungun also wishes that Mohan would marry Meera.

Mohan, however, still lives with Radha's memories, as 7 years ago, after Gungun got consciousness, she revealed that Tulsi is Damini. Damini is then arrested for her crimes. Kadambari's truth is still hidden, and she is paralyzed now. It is revealed that Kadambari had strangulated Vishwanath to death, but before he died he threw a vase at Kadambari, which resulted in her current condition.

Mohan and his family move to Yug's neighboring house where Mohan and Gungun meet Manan, with whom they develop a close bond. Meanwhile, it's revealed that Radha is still affected from Mohan's ill behavior towards her. She misses Mohan, but at the same time has vowed to keep herself and Manan away from him.
