However, the Naag Mani can only be handled and touched by the Badshah (Prince Sangraam Singh). With revenge in her mind, Shivanya groups together with Shesha (cousin) and a pandit (priest). Rithik Raheja (foster son of Ankush Raheja/son of Prince Sangraam Singh) falls in love with Shivanya at the first sight. However, he was about to marry his childhood best friend, Tanvi Shailesh Mathur, who loved him deeply.
In order to take revenge, Shivanya manages to become a part of the Raheja family as she knows three of the five murderers of her parents. Rithik marries Shivanya when Tanvi is replaced by her.
However, Shivanya is accepted by the Raheja family as their daughter-in-law and the wife of Rithik. Unknown about Shivanya’s truth, Rithik comes closer to her.
