Kangana’s love interest is Priyam, her sweetheart from her childhood, who returns from America. Even though Kangana marries him, her beauty still causes some issues in their marriage. Priyam becomes insecure since Kangana is more successful than him in life. He also becomes paranoid and accuses her of engaging in affairs with other men. He goes so far as to raise his hand on her and gives her a scar that mars her beauty. In the last episode of the serial, Kangana commits suicide. Priyam also kills himself out of frustration.
The serial was forced to a sudden end because of the poor health of the lead actress, Sudeepa Singh, who got chickenpox. She was in such a bad state that she could not even stand.
