Avni's father is that the famous director Ashish Mehta who meets them secretly thanks to his mother, Dayawanti Mehta; a deeply religious Hindu woman who disapproves of his relationship with Ayesha who may be a Muslim. Dayawanti rejects Avni at every step determined for her son to interrupt his relations together with his "illegitimate" family. Ashish is forced to marry Neela Parikh, a kind-hearted lady. Avni becomes friends with Neela who helps Avni in her battle for justice by fighting against Dayawanti for Avni's rights.
Ayesha gives birth to her and Ashish's son, Aman. Dayawanti suffocates and murders Ayesha and takes Aman away renaming him Amol.

Neela gets her out of prison and decides to go away with Avni. Dayawanti tricks Avni into meeting her alone and shoots her but Neela saves her.
