Anshuman Rathore and Paakhi are family friends who are married to each other by their families in their childhood. Tension between the two families results in them growing up in different cities. When he comes of age, Anshuman (Mohammed Iqbal Khan), now the owner of the Rathore Mansion in Shimla, marries a girl of his choice who dies in a car accident leaving him with a son, Ayaan. Time passes and Anshuman decides to marry Tanya (Madhura Naik), the daughter of a rich businessman. But when the news of his childhood marriage is exposed, he unwillingly has to take Paakhi in to save his public image.
With his plans thwarted, he and his sister, Lavanya (Rukhsar Rehman), try to bully Paakhi into agreeing to a divorce, but Paakhi, brought up with traditional values, refuses. With time, Anshuman begins falling in love with her. Realising Anshuman also wanted the divorce, Paakhi announces at a press conference that she is the one filing for a divorce. As she prepares to leave, her brother-in-law Girish (Sachin Shroff) convinces her that Anshuman is in love with her. Tanya, who has been staying at the Rathore Mansion waiting to marry Anshuman, is then challenged by Paakhi to manage the house on a budget if she wants Paakhi to leave.
Tanya wins the challenge but Anshuman says that he cannot ask Paakhi to leave as Ayaan sees her as a mother. It is then revealed that Tanya cheated in the challenge and that she brainwashed Ayaan to believe that Anshuman had killed his first wife. Exposed, Tanya tries to kill Paakhi in her desperation but fails. Anshuman drives Tanya out of the house and declares his love for Paakhi.
Tanya creates circumstances leading Anshuman to believe that Paakhi is cheating on him. He confronts and humiliates Paakhi which causes her to leave. Anshuman realises his mistake and asks her to come back but Paakhi refuses saying she can't live with a man who doesn't trust and respect her. She moves to Delhi where she meets Devki (Anita Raj), Anshuman's long-lost mother who was banished by his father and falsely accused of cheating. She reunites her with her son and Devki helps Anshuman atone and ask forgiveness from Paakhi again. Paakhi forgives him and agrees to return to Shimla.
Unfortunately, Anshuman is soon killed by his younger, look-alike brother, Aryaman. A broken Paakhi realises she has to look after her husband's business and Ayaan. Anshuman's cousin, Veer (Varun Badola), helps Paakhi and she later marries him under pressure from her family. Paakhi also adopts a troubled teenaged girl named Priya (Jasmine Avasia) who has been thrown out by her father. Veer and Paakhi realise that she will never be able to move on from Anshuman and get a divorce. Paakhi lives with Anshuman's memories and her kids hereon.
