Thapki Pyar Ki (lit. A light touch of love) is an Indian television series that began airing on Colors TV from 25 May 2015. It is a story of a young woman, Thapki Chaturvedi, who has a stutter. It starred Jigyasa Singh and Manish Goplani besides Ankit Bathla, Sheena Bajaj, Monica Khanna and others. The series ended on 14 July 2017, having completed 698 episodes.
Vaani Chaturvedi has a stutter but is a cheerful and intelligent woman. She never loses hope and doesn't let her speech impairment become an obstacle in her life. However, her stutter prevents her from receiving any marriage proposals including that of Diwakar Mishra, a short unattractive and superficial man who rejects her. She always speak with a pat so people named her - Thapki.
Thapki finds employment at a television channel called News365 which is owned by Dhruv Pandey. Dhruv is a well educated and gentle man. Dhruv gets impressed by Thapki's work and soon they fall in love.
Dhruv's mother, Vasundhara "Vasu" Pandey, disapproves of Thapki as a suitable match for her golden boy because of her stutter. On the wedding day, Vasu asks her adopted son, Bihaan, to poison Dhruv's food making him unconscious and then gets Bihaan married to Thapki. Vasu wants Dhruv to marry Shraddha.
Thapki takes her place in the Pandey House as a daughter-in-law and one day, saves Vasu from a falling deity. Vasu regrets her attitude to Thapki. Bihaan starts falling in love with Thapki. Dhruv becomes jealous of Thapki and Bihaan and tries to break up their marriage before realising the error of his ways.
Bihaan's biological family consisting of his mother Kosi Jaiswal and stepfather Naman arrive. They want a kidney from Bihaan for their son, Janardhan "John" Jaiswal. They discover that Bihaan was born with one kidney. Thapki tells Bihaan that his family want the kidney anyway but Bihaan does not believe her. Thapki is pregnant and writes to tell Bihaan but the letter is intercepted by Bihaan's family. Thapki has an accident and loses the baby.

Thapki returns as a business tycoon called Vaani Oberoi. With the help of Dhruv, she exposes Kosi Devi who is thrown out of the house. Kabir takes revenge on Bihaan for setting alight the house of his sister, Neha. Thapki believes that Bihaan is innocent and soon Kabir does too. Thapki, Vasu and Neha expose Sankar as the true arsonist. Sankar escapes the police and Dhruv divorces Shraddha and marries Aditi, Thapki's sister. In a drunken state, he impregnates Aditi as well as Shraddha.
Thapki becomes pregnant. Sankar fakes her death and Bihaan is arrested for her murder. Sankar blackmails Thapki saying he will save Bihaan if Thapki leaves him. Thapki leaves and later gives birth to twin daughters who are named Tina and Bani. Sankar tries to kill one of the daughters but she is saved by Bihaan who adopts her (not knowing she is his own daughter). Everyone thinks that one of the twin daughters is dead. Thapki leaves with Kabir. Bihaan tries to stop her. Shraddha tells Sankar that she knows that she had blackmailed Thapki and they form an alliance. Aditi overhears them and tells Bihaan. They go to Thapki but on the way are injured when Sharddha runs them over.

Thapki is living with Bani. Thapki and Bihaan meet at their daughters' school. Thapki returns in order to help Bihaan's amnesia. Shraddha blackmails Tina into pressuring Bihaan and Sankar to marry. Bihaan's memory returns when Thapki reminds him of Sankar's behaviour. Sankar implicates Shraddha.
When Vasu takes Bihaan and his family to a famous temple, a gangster called Amma Mai kidnaps Bani. Amma Mai wants Bani to marry her son Prince. Shraddha tries to make an alliance with Amma Mai. Shraddha's plan is revealed by Thapki. When Bihaan tries to save Bani, Bihaan is shot by Amma Mai and dies. Amma Mai and Monty are arrested. Bani blames her mother Thapki for Bihaan's death and leaves home. Kosi takes Bani in. Thapki is then kidnapped by Shraddha. Vasu rescues Thapki and defeats Shraddha.

Tina is to marry Samar. Bani and Kosi arrive to take revenge on Thapki. Thapki asks Aryan, who looks like Bihaan, to impersonate Bihaan. Aryan is the older brother of Bani's fiancé, Manav. On the day of marriage, Kosi creates mayhem in which Tina marries Manav and Bani marries Samar. Bani apologises to Thapki and Kosi is arrested.
Aryan is told that Bani has died in an accident and Thapki's face has been completely changed by surgery after the accident. In fact, Thapki and Bani have been kidnapped by "Lovely", a bar dancer, who is impersonating Thapki. Thapki escapes but is blackmailed into silence by Lovely, who threatens to kill Bani. Lovely is Thapki's long lost twin sister who was separated from her family when Thapki pushed her. Lovely disguises Thapki with a veil and introduces her as Rajjo. However, the family are not fooled. Samar rescues Bani. Lovely apologises for her actions.
Tina and Vasu have not yet forgiven Thapki for messing up her daughter's life. Vasu learns of Aryan and her husband Balvinder tries to kill him. Before he does, Bani explains all. Thapki is forgiven. Aryan is invited to stay with the family to take Bihaan's place. Aryan marries Thapki and everyone lives happily ever after.
