Set in Rajkot, the story follows the journey of Mishti Agarwal with Abir Rajvansh by her side as she questions age old concepts of arranged marriages and relationships.
Mishti is a kind, down-to-earth girl who believes in independence and the importance of compatibility in a relationship. Estranged from her parents Karishma and Naman, she was adopted by the Maheshwari family.
Kuhu falls in love with Kunal at first sight and is delighted when Meenakshi sends a proposal for Kunal's marriage. Due to a misunderstanding, Meenakshi chooses Mishti for Kunal, leaving Kuhu heartbroken. When Mishti asks for premarital courtship, Meenakshi gets angry. She asks Mishti to help in Abir's NGO, hoping to create differences and problems between Mishti and Kunal.
As Mishti and Abir work together, they form a bond of friendship and understanding, coming closer in the process. While Abir falls in love with Mishti, she breaks off her alliance with Kunal owing to his indifferent behaviour. Eventually, Mishti realises her feelings for Abir and the two confess about their love. Meanwhile, Kunal and Kuhu get married. Kuhu's happiness is short lived as Kunal reveals that he has no feelings for her.

In June 2018, there were rumours of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai getting a spin-off. However, producer Rajan Shahi denied it. But, the plan for a spin-off was announced in January 2019. Talking about it producer Rajan Shahi said, "We are working on a spin-off of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, which completed 10 years recently. Shaheer has been signed on to play the male lead. He will be seen in a dynamic role, which will be different from his previous outings. I realised that some characters from the original show deserve to be explored further."
The team had a havan on their sets on February 21 2019, for an auspicious beginning to their new journey.
In February 2019, Shivangi Joshi introduced Rhea Sharma as Mishti. Soon, in March 2019, a promo based on marriage and courtship featuring Rhea Sharma, Lata Sabharwal, Sanjeev Seth, Pooja Joshi Arora, Kshitee Jog and Medha Jambodhkar was released. Later, rapper and singer Badshah with some female characters of other shows of Star Plus promoted the show along with Rhea Sharma. The next promo featured Shaheer Sheikh and Rhea Sharma with the song sung by Badshah. Days before its premiere, another promo featuring both on a roof of a bus was released.
The show is set in Rajkot, Gujarat. The team had shot some initial scenes in Bhuj and Kutch of Gujarat. Stating about it Rajan Shahi says, “We wanted to extend the show beyond Rajasthan and decided to add the vibrancy of Gujarat. My entire creative team explored the region, including various markets of Kutch, to capture the region flawlessly in our show. We have included various artworks, handicrafts, handlooms and the aesthetics of Kutch. Just like Kartik and Naira, I am looking at creating Abir and Mishti as the next sought after couple on Hindi television!”
Rhea Sharma was selected to portray Mishti and Shaheer Sheikh to portray Abir. Lata Sabharwal, Sanjeev Seth, Pooja Joshi Arora, Akshaya Naik and Amardeep Jha reprise their respective roles from the parent series Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Jay Pathak, Sameer Sharma and Soniya Kaur were cast as Naman, Shaurya and Jasmeet which were earlier played by Anshul Pandey, Yash Gera and Shirin Sewani in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.
Earlier, Harshad Arora was in talks for playing Abir while Tushar Khanna was supposed to play Kunal. But Shaheer Sheikh and Ritvik Arora replaced them.
Palak Purswani was cast for a cameo to play Kunal's former girlfriend Swetha in July 2019. Sameer Dharmadhikari was roped to play Abir's father, Mehul in September 2019. In November 2019, Helly Shah was roped for a cameo as Neha. Vatsal Sheth entered soon after as Nishanth.
The Times Of India appreciated the chemistry of the leads Rhea Sharma and Shaheer Sheikh and also acclaimed the series as the best Hindi fiction launch of 2019.
India Today stated, "The authentic flavour of Gujarat, the dialect, costumes to fresh look of the characters-- telly buffs are rejoicing and relishing the spin-off series."
