Plot

The Beginning

Ram's younger step-sister, Natasha, and Priya's younger brother, Kartik, fall in love and wish to get married. But Kartik wants Priya to get married first and both of their families recommend that Ram should marry Priya. Nevertheless, after a series of miscommunications and misunderstandings, destiny contrives once again to get the two married. Ram and Priya slowly start developing feelings for each other through the small but significant & memorable moments they share together.

Priya and Ram finally realise that they have fallen in love and consummate their marriage and their relationship blossoms. Priya surprises Ram with a statue of his late father while Ram transfers his pharmaceutical business property in the name of Priya.

But Ram's step-mother Niharika has other plans to get Priya out of the house by creating misunderstandings between Ram and Priya, as Ram was favouring Priya before her. Priya, curious about Niharika's past, ultimately finds out that Niharika was earlier married to a doctor named Dr. Jayesh Karekar and they had kids, Siddhanth and Ishika. But, as she wanted more money she tricked Ram's father into marrying her and divorced Dr. Jayesh Karekar. Priya finds out Dr. Jayesh, who advises Priya to go away from Ram's life and his family, as only then she would be able to expose Niharika's dark ways and Priya heeds his advice.

Events force Niharika to bring Priya back home and she asks Priya to somehow get herself rid of Ram. Just before revealing the truth, Priya is falsely accused in a case of making poisonous medicines by Siddhanth. She is put behind bars for the next 14 years, after Ayesha gives a statement against her, as Ayesha has fallen in love with Siddhanth. Later, Ayesha gets to know that she has been cheated by him, but it was too late by then. Siddhanth plans to kill Ram by a car accident. Niharka, fearing about Ram's death turns emotional and saves Ram by getting in his car, meets with an accident and dies. Before her death she reveals every truth of her life, leaving Ram shocked.

Priya meets with a disaster in the coming days. During the mess she is given the responsibility of a young girl named Raina, by her dying mother, Jyoti Malhotra. Priya and Raina survive the disaster but Jyoti dies. The Kapoors and Sharmas unknown about Priya's survival assume her to be dead. Priya plans to leave Mumbai and go away from Ram's life, as this may put him out of all the worries and he may move on. Priya takes Raina to her family in Dubai, where she met Rajat Kapur. After that she becomes aware that she is pregnant. However Priya's parents came to know that she was pregnant after getting her medical check-up reports from Police. But they didn't reveal it to Ram as he was already in shock because of Priya's death. She finds a job for herself to support her coming baby and life and supports Rajat's step-daughter Kady.

Ek Nayi Shuruwat

The story takes a five year leap. In these years, Rajat Kapoor, the caretaker of Kady and Raina, gives Priya a bookshop in a mall on rent, where she sells books.Priya assumes a new identity as Pooja Sharma since she doesn't want to expose her past. Priya is happy with her five year old daughter, Peehu, who has the same qualities as her father, Ram. Priya thinks her life is as good as it used to be five years ago. After Priya's presumed-death, Priya's mother, Shipra, is sent to stay with Ayesha. Since then, she lives with her and her personality changes a lot. Ayesha lives in Ram's house and becomes a top model. After Priya's presumed-death Ram marries Ayesha to do her justice as Ayesha is left behind with her and Sid's son who is named Khush.

Ram says that he married Ayesha to make Priya happy wherever she would be and still loves Priya. While, Rishabh is married to a lady named Saumya, who cares about Ram, knowing that Ayesha will be unable to care about him much. Vikram and Neha's children are grown up. But unfortunately Vikram and Neha plan to get divorced. Lastly, Ram is Rajat's friend but Rajat is unaware of Priya's past. Rajat is also a writer with the pen name of Anjaan and Priya loves books authored by Anjaan. Rajat's past is very painful as his first love, Jyoti, leaves him behind with her own daughters, Kadambari(Kady) and Raina, from a different marriage.

Ram meets Peehu, unaware that he is her father while Peehu has no knowledge that who her father is. In a very short time they come close to each other. Priya becomes aware of this and regrets it. She plans to reunite with Ram but steps back after she gets to know about his marriage with Ayesha. However, Ayesha gets to know that Priya is alive but keeps her mouth shut for the sake of living a peaceful life with Ram. While, on the other hand, Rajat slowly develops feelings for Priya even though Priya has none for him.

Meanwhile, a skit competition is held in Peehu's school Annual Day Function, in which, she has to act for a minute. She acts well like her Golu Uncle (Ram). She gets the 1st Prize and is declared the Winner. Rajat gives a special surprise to Peehu by taking everyone for a dinner. Next day Priya finds out that Peehu has a high fever and takes her to the doctor. Rajat decides to give Pooja the whole book store and instructs his lawyer to prepare the legal documentation. At Mumbai, family comes to know about Natasha's abortion from Ayesha.

Priya comes to know that Rajat is Anjaan and Rajat also comes to know that Pooja's real name is Priya Sharma. Rajat tells Priya about his past which is overheard by Kady. Kady gets upset and angry and decides to leave the house. Meanwhile, Rajat finds that Kady is in Mumbai and requests Priya a.k.a. Pooja to explain to Kady that they all love her and convince her to come home. Kady comes to Rahul's home while Ram sends Vikram and Neha on a holiday to France and takes the responsibility of their 3 kids and Kady. Ram contacts Rajat to inform Kady is with him. Pooja explains Kady that they all love her very much and Kady realises her mistake in running away from home. Rajat decides to throw a party because both the Kapoor and Kapur families are in Mumbai and it is Ram & Priya's wedding anniversary.

On the other hand to celebrate her anniversary, Priya takes Peehu on Mumbai Darshan and eventually reaches that banquet hall where she and Ram got married. Ram also reaches the same banquet hall to attend the wedding of one of his employees, where Peehu sees Ram and walks over to him. Ram is surprised to see Peehu in the wedding hall. Priya searches for Peehu and eventually bumps into Ram. Ram is shocked to see Priya and Peehu introduces Ram and Priya to each other. Ram is shocked to see Priya alive and gets a heart attack. Ram is taken to the hospital by Priya and his associate.

Meanwhile, in the party, Natasha and Saumya tease Rajat and he admits that he loves Pooja (Priya). Rajat, Kady and Dai Jaa leave for the airport. Rajat calls to Ram's mobile which is answered by his associate, who informs him that Ram had a heart attack. While travelling to the hospital, Rajat tries to call Pooja's mobile which is unanswered. Rajat leaves a voice message on Pooja's mobile about his feelings towards Pooja (Priya) as she is busy filling the form in the hospital.

Rajat reaches the hospital and comes to know Pooja is Ram's wife, Priya Ram Kapoor. He deletes the voice message from Priya's phone while she is talking to the doctor. Doctor says that Ram's condition is critical as he had a major shock and is not responding. Peehu sits besides Ram and keeps her hand on Ram's heart and his condition starts improving. On the other hand, Natasha, Kartik and Saumya reach the hospital. Saumya sees Priya and is shocked. She stops Natasha and Kartik from going inside while Priya explains to Rajat the reason she left Ram.

Ayesha comes to the hospital and she finds that Priya is back and addresses the media in order to secure her position as Ram's wife. Then, leaves for her house to stop the family members from coming to the hospital only to find out that they are already at the hospital. The family members visit Ram in the hospital and find out that Priya is alive. Everybody especially Priya's father Sudhir is shocked and doesn't talk with Priya. He is happy to see Peehu, and Shipra asks Priya to come home.

When Ram wakes up he wants to talk to Priya alone. Ram is mad so he tells Priya to sign papers. Priya thinks it is divorce papers but Ram tells her that he is asking for Peehu's custody. He asks for the five years he lost when Peehu first came in this world, when she said her first word and when she first went to school. Priya can't say explain why she did everything because Ram is mad and doesn't want to listen. On the other side, Priya also wants to give some time to Ram as she knew that Ram was feeling betrayed by her. On other side Ram and Priya came to know that Vikram had an illegitimate son. Due to this Neha and Vikram are getting a divorce.
