Premise[edit]

The storyline revolves around a girl named Bokul, who is tomboyish in nature but a brave, honest and free-spirited soul. Under unforeseen circumstances, she gets married to Rishi. Initially, Rishi doesn't accept Bokul as his wife due to her appearance and mannerisms, but after getting to know her closely they develop a strong bond with each other, which develops into a unique relationship with their friendship being the base. Bokul too carves a special place for herself in the hearts of Rishi's family members with her loving and caring nature. Rishi also stands by Bokul in her fight against her late father's culprits and supports her to reprise her studies and become an IPS officer.
