Story:

The show begins on Haider and Dua’s third anniversary. Each anniversary, Haider adds another diamond to Dua’s pendant to signify their years together. Dua is shown to be the perfect and ideal wife and daughter-in-law. She takes care of everyone’s needs and is happy in her life. Later on, it’s revealed that Haider doesn’t get along with his father, Rahaat, because he got married a second time and hurt his mother, Heena. Ruhaan, Haider’s half-brother, was left at their door as a 6-month-old baby when Haider was 10 years old. Haider’s mother decided to raise Ruhaan like her own son. Eventually, Rahat marries Ruhaan’s mother and brings her home, which creates a barrier in his relationship with Haider’s mother. Since then, Haider has despised his father and is bitter about Rahaat’s second relationship. Haider’s father tells him that Haider will understand him someday when Haider falls in love, which angers Haider even more. Ruhaan’s mother wishes that a “dusri aurat” (second woman) enters Dua and Haider’s relationship so that Heena’s pride in her son breaks.
