Vanjhali refuses to be his wife as she does not like this institution of marriage. Since Vanjhali liked his work, she offers him another deal for a pre wedding shoot in Rajasthan. He agreed for that and went ahead.

During that wedding, Chadta tells Vanjhali to give him a chance and pretend to be his wife until the wedding is over, and he will try his best to impress her. But the plan didn’t do as planned by Chadta as on the last day Vanjhali told him that she is still against the institute of marriage and gave her own reasons for that. Chadta also agreed to that and decides to be single forever. After some time Chadta goes for a pre-wedding shoot and finds out that Vanjhali is the bride and she is getting married to Bagh Singh. Chadta didn’t like this and tries to convince Vanjhali to not marry that guy but she didn’t agree. He then targeted Bagh Singh and tries to discourage him for the wedding, by stating about their relationship during the Rajasthan wedding. Hearing this Bagh Singh ends his marriage with Vanjhali. Vanjhali’s family decided to get Chadta and Vanjhali married to save the family name but Chadta pretends to be uninterested.

Both of them confessed their feelings at the end.
