Plot summary[edit]

Shastri Sisters is the story of four sisters: Alka (Neha Pednekar), Anushka (Ishita Ganguly), Devyani (Sonal Vengurlekar), and Pia (Pragati Chourasiya), who live with their father Narayana Shastri (Rajesh Jais), in Kanpur. Alka is in love with a man from their neighborhood named Rajeev (Sumit Verma), but Narayana Shastri (father) gets a job transfer so the family has to move to Delhi. In Delhi, they live as tenants with the Sareen family of four: Surinder Sareen, his wife Minti Sareen, and their sons Rajat Sareen, an Indian Air Force Pilot, and the unemployed Neel Sareen.

Alka soon turns Rajeev away and marries a kind and supportive man named Rohan. Anushka is a simple girl who eventually falls in love with Rajat, who is taken by her simplicity at first sight. Meanwhile, Devyani, a self-obsessed diva, has also fallen in love with Rajat and turns bitter towards Anushka, while rejecting Neel, who loves her.

Karishma, Rajat's former friend, tries to create misunderstandings between Anushka and Rajat, but Neel and Devyani defeat her. Neel and Devyani are betrothed, but Neel is forced to marry Minti's friend's daughter Kajal, as planned by Minti, who does not approve of Devyani. Kajal, however, is revealed to be greedy and seeking the Sareen's money, and pushes Anushka off a cliff in order to benefit from her death. A lookalike of Rajat is shown at the venue, who ignores Anushka.

1 Year Later[edit]

An imposter, who is revealed to be a terrorist, is living with the Sareens as Rajat. Neel still loves Devyani. Anushka is rescued by Dr. Raghav, recovers, but is still kept as a patient. She manages to escape, but sees Devyani and the impostor married as Rajat. Anushka and Alka bring Rajat home and get the terrorist arrested.

The show ends after showing Anushka remarried to Rajat.
