The story follows arpimd Lakshmi Mathur (Nikita Dutta) a small town young woman from Jodhpur, who nurtures the dream of being India's next Dreamgirl and becoming the main heroine of Navrang Studios.
Navrang is owned by The Sareens, a prestigious film family residing in the plush Pali hill, Mumbai. Lakshmi comes to Mumbai to fulfil her dreams. During the process she(Lakshmi) finds herself in love with Samar Sareen (Mohsin Khan) who is the second son of the Sareens in disguise of (Raj Samosewala). They both confess their love to each other. On the other hand, the current Dreamgirl, Ayesha Sareen (Shraddha Arya) who is a very cunning and ambitious woman, is overprotective of her power and title.
She wants to be India's one and only dreamgirl. She doesn't want anyone else to replace her. All these years, she was safe because no other girl has the talent and spark like her. But when Lakshmi comes, she gets to know that her time as the Dreamgirl is over.
Lakshmi tries to prove her acting skills to Ayesha time and time again, but this only angers Ayesha. She does everything she can, to keep Lakshmi away from the Dreamgirl title and Samar Sareen who is Ayesha's brother-in-law (younger) as she gets to know that Samar and Lakshmi love each other. Samar has a lot of faith in his so-called 'Bhabhi' (Sister-in-law). Ayesha throws a lot of challenges in Lakshmi's life. Lakshmi overcomes all of them and also sees that Ayesha is insecure of her. Ayesha in the process to keep Lakshmi away from her Sareen house tells her brother Karan (who doesn't know her real face and also loves Lakshmi secretly) that Lakshmi loves him. All these misunderstandings take place and finally both Samar and Lakshmi clear all them and prepare for their wedding. And in this process finds out the "Real Ayesha" who is a cunning girl.
Ayesha then transfers all the rights on the property of Navarang to her name and eventually succeeds. After Lakshmi's and Samar's wedding, their set property is set on fire and Manav, Samar and Karan(Ayesha's brother who was always good) go to the set to extinguish the fire. However, Samar and Manav supposedly die due to a car crash, while Samar' body is recovered, Manav's body is not found.
The Sareen family come to know that the majority of the shares of Navrang are in Ayesha's name. Then they find out Ayesha 'dark secret' who in fact is her twin sister, Aarti. They use Aarti (Aarti willingly helps) to fight back against Ayesha for their studio (Navarang). Aarti impersonates Ayesha and tells all the investors that she will pay all their money along with interest to them.
There is a new entry in the show, Raghu. The story progresses and shows Ayesha trying to impress Raghu (Similar to season 1 where a poor character named Lakshmi (Played by Shraddha Arya) dreams of marrying a rich and wealthy businessman named Arjun Agnihotri (Played by Sudeep Sahir)).
Aarti tries to get Navrang back to its former glory.
Ayesha marries Raghu by deceiving everyone, pretending to be Aarti as Aarti and Raghu fall in love after many meetings where Raghu thinks that Aarti is Ayesha and then he finds out that it is Aarti instead. Aarti's face is burned and no one can tell which one is Ayesha or Aarti.
Aarti is planning to take revenge on Ayesha. Ayesha has always caused Aarti pain and harm, yet Aarti kept forgiving her. Now, Aarti has a new face (Megha Gupta) and she appears as a strong character and fights against Aarti (who in real is Ayesha) to reveal her truth to everyone.
After a few upturns and twists, Ayesha's truth is revealed to everyone by Aarti as 'Shikha' and Raghu(who helped Aarti with her face transplant and advice).But, Ayesha cunningly starts pretending as if she's lost her 4-5 year's memory and as a result, the police can't arrest her until her recovery. So, she is allowed to stay in the Sareen House till she remembers everything. In the meanwhile, Aarti and Raghu get married and soon have a girl child.
Ayesha has her own intentions and as she gets the opportunity, she steals Aarti and Raghu's daughter and escapes with the child, leaving her career, stardom and dreamgirl title (which were by then ruined due to her evilness) for one single motive-to make the baby girl her own daughter and, to train the child,as the next DREAMGIRL.
