The series is a restructuring of Pehredaar Piya Ki,  which received negative social media response for depicting its two central characters, Diya, an 18-year-old princess and Ratan, a 9-year-old prince, as married. The Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) asked SET India to move the series to a later 10pm time slot and the network complied. After a drop in viewership resulting from the move, series producers opted to restructure the series for prime time, in part by removing the child marriage theme by advancing Ratan's age to adulthood and recasting the character.
It follows the life of a 30-year-old girl Diya, who sacrificed 12 years of her life by fulfilling a dying man's wish on his deathbed by becoming the caretaker of his heir and son, Ratan Maan Singh. She shares no relationship with Ratan or his family and there is no greed which drives her to do this. Set against the royal canvas of Rajasthan, the show challenges the conventional perception of men being the protector of women. Ratan is constantly being targeted by attackers, and it is up to Diya to find the person behind the attacks who might as well be part of the family.
The show revolves around a Rajput Shatrani, Diya Sajjan Singh, who gave up 12 years of her life to protect the heir to the Rajput throne, Ratan Maan Singh. Ratan is 21 and lives in London after his parents, Harshwardan and Padma, were killed in an accident. He returns to Surajgarh to become the king.
Several attempts to kill Ratan occur shortly after his arrival. Diya suspects it to be someone from the family. Padma's sister, Sushma (Choti Thakuranisa) is married to Bhuvan Singh (Chote Thakursa) and has 2 children Sakshi and Raghu. Sakshi is married to Mohak and Raghu to Priya who has borne him a son, Yash. Bhuvan has a sister, Nithya, whose son, Ayush, is married to Diya's sister, Isha.
Ratan and Diya devise a plot that could bring out the attacker by faking their love towards each other. Diya meets with a serious accident. While in the hospital, Priya tries to harm Diya, and the culprit is found. It turns out that Priya, Raghu, and Sushma were working together in trying to assassinate Ratan. Priya is put in jail and Raghu is killed; Sushma realizes her mistake and begs forgiveness.
Since Diya's duties are over, she decides to get married to her fiancee, Abhay Rathore Singh. But Abhay's sister, Arpita, makes Abhay realize his 12-year wait for Diya and they leave her stranded at the wedding mandap. Ratan then finds out that his late father wanted him to marry Diya, so he reluctantly marries her. Ratan finds it hard to fulfill his responsibilities to Diya, also due to the 9-year age gap between them. More problems arise when Yash marries Mohana, Arpita's daughter. Ratan decides to divorce Diya, only after helping her win a case against Abhay and Arpita. Diya then realizes her love for Ratan. Another problem arises when a man claims that he is the real Ratan Maan Singh and tries to influence the entire family against Ratan. His truth is revealed, as he tries to assassinate the entire family. Ratan then realizes his love for Diya, and they work together with their family to eliminate the terrorist. The show ends revealing that Diya is pregnant with Ratan's child and Mohana is pregnant with Yash's child.
