The English title of the serial is Evicted Lord and it was broadcast on ARY TV. It is a story of a family that is divided through contradictions, expectations and traditions.
Sarkar Sahab (Asif Raza Mir) is very positive and soft-spoken noble Lord living in a palace in cholistan with his wife Shahi (Deeba) and two sons, Habeel (Kashif Mehmood) and Balaaj (Imran Abbas). Sarkar Sahab's younger brother Lord Meer Alam (Nayyar Ejaz) and his wife Surayya (Fariha Akbar) have two daughters and don't have any son.
Qudsia, elder daughter of Meer Alam, is married to Habeel. Doctor tells her that she will not be able to become a mother. Now Shahi wants Habeel to do second marriage for child. Zena (Madiha Iftikhar), younger daughter of Mir Alam, is an energetic and lively girl. She loves Balaaj since her childhood. Balaaj is studying abroad and there he falls in love with another girl Salina (Zainab Qayyum).
Gul Ara (Nirma) was a professional dancer who was invited from Karachi to perform in a Sarkar's family event and her mother traps Sarkar Sahab in a situation that he has to marry Gul Ara. Shahi asks him to leave the palace and Habeel with the help of Meer Alam takes over all the business affairs.
Balaaj marries Salina in Dubai and here Shahi fixes his wedding date in Bahawalpur. He is called a day before wedding to give him surprise by showing an emergency over the phone that his mother is critically ill. On arrival Balaaj refuses to marry and informs Zena that he is already married. Zena begs him to do it as a paper marriage, just to show people and make the family happy.
Salena gets pregnant and gives birth to a baby boy. She phones Bhawalpur to let Balaj know this happy news when Gul Ara answers and helps her financially in the absence of Balaj and also helps to come to Bahawalpur. Meer Habeel and Balaaj malign Gul Ara and convince Sarkar Sahab by showing documents that she is doing fraud by slowly selling all the property to get her thrown out of home.
Shahi accepts Sarkar Sahab back in palace. Salina goes to palace and entire family gets shocked. Salina's son is accepted as heir. Shahi brings Gul Ara in palace to live together after proving her innocence by Sarkar's trustworthy staff member Saim Ali (Faiq Khan).
