Chotti Bahu was a daily soap that was aired on Zee TV. This story is a stereo typical drama (and somewhat slow moving). Chotti Bahu - Sindoor Bin Suhagan’s 1st episode was telecasted on December 8, 2008. The story of Chotti Bahu is about a simple girl Radhika (Rubina Dilaik), who lives in the holy city of Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh, India. She is an obedient daughter and a devoted sister. She was adopted by the respected Pandit Brijmohan Shastri. Radhika (who is adopted) and Vishaka are the two daughters of Shashtriji and Devki in Vrindavan.
Radhika is a dutiful and unselfish girl. On the other hand, Vishaka wants to become an actress, she is self-willed and selfish. Dev (Avinash Sachdev), and Radhika fall in love and get married. The story takes a turn when he thinks it was an illusion and fate has something else waiting for him. Vishaka goes into Dev's house as the Chotti Bahu, in place of Radhika. To complete her goal of becoming an actress, she wants to use the money of the Dev's family.
The story is about Radhika's sacrifices to make her family please, rotating her from one difficult situation to another and the Lord Krishna is her only pal and sympathizer.
