It premiered on 27 June 2016.[2][3] The show stars Nakuul Mehta, Kunal Jaisingh and Leenesh Mattoo, who portray Shivaay, Omkara, and Rudra.[4] The show completed 600 episodes in August 2018.[5] The show completed two years on 27 June 2018.[6] The show is set to take a leap on 17th December 2018 and will air a fresh season starring Nakuul Mehta as Shivaansh Singh Oberoi, son of Shivaay and Anika; opposite Manjiri Pupala.


The family consists of Kalyani Dadi, the matriarch of the family and is always there to give advice to her children and grandchildren. Dadi has two sons named Tej and Shakti. Tej is married to Jhanvi and has three children with her, Omkara, Rudra and Priyanka. Shakti is married to Pinky and has one son with her, Shivaay, the eldest grandson.

The show follows the bond between the brothers and then shifts to the bonds the brothers have with their significant others. Shivaay is a reputable businessman who does not believe in love and plans to get married to Tia Kapoor, on his mothers insistence. Shivaay gets married to Anika, an orphan who has been adopted by a family with a physically disabled brother, Sahil. Although Shivaay and Anika do not get married under the perfect circumstances, they eventually fall in love and constantly prove to be the perfect couple and example for their younger siblings.

Omkara is originally an artist who loved the concept of love, who also becomes a businessman after he goes through a tragic time in his life.He meets Ishana, a girl who wanted to marry Omkara to attain financial stability. For that, she acts as Bela, a docile girl, in front of Omkara and Mala, a mediatist in front of Omkara's girlfriend, Riddhima, to separate Omkara and Riddhima. Then, Ishana gets revealed to Om, by Shivaay and Rudra and Om throws her out of his life. Riddhima, then deceives Omkara, and Om breaks up with her. After his breakup with Riddhima, Omkara started to despise the idea of love. Then, He gets married to Gauri Kumari Sharma, a bubbly girl he meets in Bareilly. Initially Omkara hates Gauri and believes her to be a gold digger. Gauri brings out the artist in him once again and eventually wins his love. Gauri's inability to properly say Hindi and English words alike, is part of her charm.

Rudra is the youngest brother and practically the baby of the family. He has no ambitions or goals in life and only loves to work out and party. His initial love interest is Saumya Kapoor, a family friend of the Oberoi's. Rudra initially hates Saumya but later after Saumya saves Rudra from Romi, a mentally stunted woman who claims herself to be a devi, Rudra develops feelings for Saumya.In a drunken state, Rudra and Saumya get married, but Rudra constantly rejects Saumya's love and she exits the show. Then enters Bhavya Pratap Rathore, a police officer, who is undercover as a shy and simple girl and uses Rudra in one of her operations. Eventually Rudra and Bhavya fall in love, but their age difference proves to be their problem. Saumya comes back to get Rudra back, but Bhavya and Rudra get married.

Priyanka is shy, nervous and honest girl. She is Anika's friend. Priyanka gets married to Ranveer Randhawan, an ACP officer.Ranveer initially portrayed as a negative character and try to ruin the oberois with his foster mother Kamini Khurana, but later changes good seeing Priyanka's love and devotion.

The brothers constant enemy happens to be the Kapoor sisters, who reveal to be Svetlana, Tia, and Saumya. Svetlana reveals that her parents were killed in an accident at one of the Oberoi's factory and therefore the sisters seek revenge from their family. Svetlana initially is Omkara and Rudra's father, Tej's mistress. The entire family hates her and she is the reason for Tej and Jhanvi's rocky marriage. When Tej and Jhanvi get back together, she tries her talents with Omkara, but does not succeed. She is eventually jailed.

Tia, who initially does not reveal herself to be Svetlana and Saumya's sister, tries to marry Shivaay. It is later revealed that she used to date a man named Dushyant, whom she believes died because of Anika and Shivaay. She eventually turns good after Dushyant turns up alive, and not loving Shivaay.

Saumya, the last Kapoor sister, was initially introduced as a family friend, and was a good character. Even when she made her re-entry into the show, she is shown to only want Rudra's love and willing to go to any means for him. Right after Bhavya and Rudra's wedding, it is revealed she is the secret third sister of the Kapoor family and was used as their secret weapon. Both Svetlana and Saumya are sent to jail, while Tia is reunited with Dushyant and goes on to have a child with him.

Anika soon finds out who her parents were, Vardhan Trivedi and his wife, who also died in the Oberoi factory incident. It is also revealed that Gauri is Anika's long-lost sister, Chutki.


The story takes a different kind of leap, where an author and public speaker, takes them back to where the story started, anika and Shivays first meeting, and changes their life, by not having them meet there.

In this new story, Shivaay is a stoic, no-nonsense businessman who is still hurting after his parents death. It is revealed the incident that constantly haunts Shivaay is that Pinky killed Shakti after learning about his affair and then killed herself. Omkara is also a businessman, rather than an artist, who help Shivaay due to the lack of family members. Rudra is a supermodel who uses his fame and money as an excuse for everything he does. Priyanka is shown as Shivaay's own younger sister this time.

Anika and Gauri live with their aunt, Sahil's mother, who hates them both due to their mother, as she left their father for another man. Gauri knows nothing of the incident, and Anika struggles to make ends meet due to lack of job. She is constantly stressed about paying for Gauri's college tuition, Sahil's medications, and house rent, with no help from her aunt.

Although Shivaay and Anika meet, they are shown to have a rocky relationship due to Shivaay's lack of trust in women. Gauri and Omkara meet and instantly hit it off. Bhavya and Rudra also meet, but it is shown that Rudra likes to use his money and fame for wrong deeds, which irks Bhavya.

Shivaay and Anika get close when the latter is hired by Shivaay's sister Priyanka as a wedding planner. Shivaay is engaged to Tia, on the insistence of Dadi and Priyanka is engaged to Tia's brother Daksh. Both Tia and Daksh are bankrupt and are marrying the Oberoi siblings only for money. Anika almost gets molested by Daksh and she tries to bring his true colors in front of Shivaay, but in vain. Anika also gets to know that Daksh is having a relationship with another girl Payal and is going to be a father of her child. But Shivaay does not listen to her.

On the day of Daksh and Priyanka's marriage, Daksh runs away being blackmailed by Anika. Priyanka goes to look for him and meets with an accident and eventually leads to be in coma. Shivaay holds Anika responsible and marries her forcefully. He then denies to accept her his wife. After few incidents Shivaay realizes Daksh's truth and Priyanka also gets up from coma, Shivaay publicly exposes Daksh and asks forgiveness from Anika. Initially, Anika does not forgive him, but later after Shivaay work hards to earn Anika's forgiveness, Anika forgives Shivaay and befriends him. Then, Shivaay surprises Anika with his birthday surprise on Anika's birthday. He also returns Anika's reputation in society and gives her divorce papers as her karwachauth present.
