The show narrates the fresh love story of college students Anant Bajpai, and Navya Mishra.

Amidst riots on Valentine's Day in Mumbai, Anant saves Navya from a goon. They further befriend each other in college and mutually begin to develop feelings. Their romance is hidden and they have to constantly keep sneaking in and out to meet and spend time together.

Anant is the grandson of Shankar Dayal Bajpai, a man of renowned religious fame and power, while Navya hails from a middle-class family from Kanpur. When the families find out about Anant and Navya, they disapprove of the alliance but ultimately agree to Anant and Navya's love and determination.

The Bajpais, however, continue to plot against Navya and try to prove her unsuitable for Anant. Seeing this, Anant and Navya leave the Bajpai house, and settle in a small flat, working two jobs to make ends meet and struggling with each other's busy routines.

The Mishras support the couple, and try to make Anant's parents realise his grandfather's schemes. Navya finally manages to bring Shankar Dayal Bajpai and his sister Saraswati's truth out, and even Anant's strict father stands up for Navya and Anant. Shankar Dayal apologises, and Anant and Navya finally return home.
