Plot

The series revolves around two people who are madly in love with each other and how their lives change when a daayan enters their lives and creates havoc. The young Janhvi Maurya, a well-educated and family-oriented girl hailing from Ujjain, stumbles upon a dangerous ploy by an evil force as many unusual and mysterious happenings occur in her hometown. With a threat to her life, she must unmask the identity of a daayan who is someone close to her. Accompanying her in this mission is her childhood friend and love interest, the wealthy and chivalrous Aakarsh Chaudhary. Jahnvi and Aakarsh marry with an intent to finish the daayan.

Later it is revealed that Asha, the maid, is Aakarsh's real mother and Aakarsh is a daayan. Due to her son's love, Asha is unable to kill Jahnvi. She joins hands with Saptroopa who erases Aakarsh's memory so that he forgets Jahnvi, his love, and marries Saptroopa instead. The daayan uses this opportunity to kill Jahnvi and offer her as a sacrifice to make herself immortal.
