In the series Abhilasha (born 19 November 1992) lives in the small town of Sagar and is married to Manan (born 2 April 1989) who was raised in Bhopal. A naïve, emotionally-dependent woman, she desires love and a simple life. An ambitious Manan soon receives an offer of a job in Mumbai and the couple move.
In the city, Abhilasha and Manan find it hard to adjust, especially Abhilasha who has to start out living with Manan's friend Siddharth. The couple move house and Manan gets a promotion.
When Manan's sister Riddhi's wedding is called off due to dowry demands, his mother and sister move to Mumbai. Manan's father helps him buy a house in Mumbai.
Manan's family travel to Mumbai for Holi to surprise the couple. The next morning, his mother, Seema, catches her intoxicated son trying to kiss his wife in public and slaps him. Disappointed in her son and daughter-in-law, she takes over the household.
The new managing director of Manan's company is Ria Oberoi, a woman Manan had helped after she got drunk at a club. She mistakes Manan for being the man who assaulted her at the hotel. He tries to clear the misunderstanding. Unaware that Manan is married, Ria gradually becomes attracted to him and woos him with gifts and a promotion. When she proposes to him and he indirectly refuses, she vows to force him to marry her.
While Seema advises Abhilasha on winning her husband back, Manan begins an affair with Ria. When Ria visits Manan, he introduces Abhilasha as his sister-in-law. After he leaves for work, Siddharth visits Abhilasha and tells her that Manan and Ria have left for Pune.
