Anaadi and Maithli meet each other knowing what their real relationship is. Anaadi's family thinks Maithli is Anaadi's wife and their daughter in-law.

Entire Show Summarized

The Setting

Do Saheliyaan is the story of friendship between two girls - Maithali and Bhavri. Despite their caste and class differences, the two girls are close friends defying all societal rules.

While Maithali hails from a high-caste rich Rajput family and is brought up by loving parents, Bhavri is the daughter of a man from a low-caste, the Rabari's.

Bhavri's mother killed
The problems start when Bhavri's chacha falls in love with Maithili's bua but are separated after they elope and marry. After the news about this incident spreads in the village a war begins between the Rajputs and the Rabari's and in this bloodshed Bhavri's mother (Tarol) accidentally dies while saving Maithili. The death ends the feud and Badri is exiled from the Village

The death also leaves a permanent mark on Tarol's sister Kalindi, who makes it her goal to avenge her sisters death from the Rajputs. To achieve this she marries Omkar (Bhavri's Dad).

12 Years Leap
Time passes by and a leap of 12 years is taken, both Bhavri and Maithli continue to meet secretly and carry on their friendship. Here Badri comes back, and both Maithli and Bhavri make it a point to unite him with Roop. Kalindi too helps them as doing so will ruin Rajput's image as she would make Roop run away with Badri. Eventually Maithli and Bhavri succeed in letting Badri and Roop escape, leaving Vasudhara (Maithli's daadi and head of Rajputs) angered.

Bhavri's and Maithli's marriage fixed..
They find out that it was Bhavri and Maithli who helped them escape. Vasundhara orders Bhavri to be killed but Maithli saves her as she tells everyone that it was Bahvri's mom who once saved her. Still in anger Vasdhara makes the decision to get Maithli married off in 7 days as she no longer wants to keep her in her house.

There Bhavri's dad too is angry over Bhavri's aid in getting Badri to escape, he too decides that Bhavri will be wed off in 7 days.

Anaadi picks Bhavri
Vasduhara in order to take revenge decides to malign Bhavri's name in the village so that no one marries her. People start picking, teasing on Bhavri, and a boy Anaadi who is staying at his mama's house in the village notices this. He sees that Bhavri is a decent girl and still the village people bad mouth her. Also Bhavri's ancestors have done some favors on Anaadi's family so he decides to marry her and goes with a proposal directly to her house. Bhavri has no idea about this, and nor has she seen Anaadi ever. The family accepts it and tells Bhavri about it and also tells her she has to follow the tradition and not see her groom before the marriage.

Kalindi plays her tricks, Shaurya too falls for Bhavri's picture

Kailindi in order to avenge Vasundhara's move finds out where the matchmaker is planning to get Maihtli married. She goes to the groom (Shauya's) army camp and replaces Maithli's picture which the matchmaker has left for him with Bhavri's. Kalindi's plan is that according to the Rajput traditions the boy and girl never see each other before marriage and if Shaurya sees Bhavri's picture now and finds Maithli sitting next to him during the wedding he will break the wedding as the girl will not be the one whom he saw in the picture. This will then ruin Rajput's image. Shaurya falls in love with Bhavri's picture and accepts the alliance. Maithli is shown Shaurya's picture.

Bhavri thinks her husband is Shaurya
And Bhavri wants to see her husband too, so she tries an old tradition, where she goes to a pond at night, and can see her husband's face there. Coincidentally Shaurya is at the pond as well. Once Bhavri reaches the pond and sees into it, she sees Shaurya's reflection, and she thinks this is her husband.

So the equation is this:
Shaurya and Maithli > Maithli has seen his picture, but Shaurya has seen Bhavri's, and thinks of her as his bride

Anaadi and Bhavri
> Anaadi has seen Bhavri. Bhavri hasn't seen him but instead seen Shaurya's picture and thinks he will her husband.

Wedding day and the drama
On the wedding day Bhavri overhears Kalindi saying that Maithli's marriage is going to be trouble and she will go to the Rajput's haveli to watch the drama. Bhavri get's tense and heads to the Rajputs haveli as well, in her wedding dress (marriages of both Bhavri and Maithli are on the same day). She goes into Maithli's room, but Maithli is in the washroom. Just then girls come to get the bride, Bhavri puts on her veil on goes with girls.
Meanwhile, Shaurya's grandmother arrives to attend the wedding as well (check the character sketch for details) and requests the priest to delay the wedding so that she can adorn her daughter-in-law with jewelery. .

Vasundhara Devi takes the bride back inside. However, she is surprised when she sees another bride in the house. Vasundhara Devi lifts the veil and is shocked to see Bhavri instead of Maithili.

The moment Kalindi had been waiting for arrives and she tells Shaurya's grandmother that the Rajputs were trying to fool her grandson marry another woman. Shaurya's grandmother asks Vasundhara Devi for an explanation.

However, Maithili steps in  and explains everything. Maithili says that the only reason behind the confusion is that her family does not appreciate her friendship with Bhavri. Maithili's courage and decision to fight for her friends honor impresses Shaurya's grandmother. She tells Maithili that she is proud to have such a courageous woman as her daughter-in-law and has no problems with her friendship with Bhavri.

Vasundhara Devi becomes very angry at Maithli and breaks all her relationship with her and asks her to never look forward to this house..

Bhavri and Kaliindi return home and the wedding rituals go on, Maithli get's married to Shaurya. Maithli is under the veil so Shaurya doesn't see Maithli's face.

While Bhavri too weds Anaadi without seeing his face once.

Train Accident
Right after the wedding takes place, both the couples board a train to Mount Abu as Annadi has to go to his parents house and Shauyra and Maithli on honeymoon. In the train Maithli and Anaadi manage to see each others faces and know the relation between them. Once in the train Shaurya still doesn't see see Maithli's face and nor Bhavri sees Anaadi's. And as they were going the train meets with a horrific accident.

The husbands swap
In the train crash the couples are displaced, Anaadi and Maithli go to the hospital to look for their spouses while Shaurya finds Bhavri and as he thinks she is his wife he takes her to their honeymoon hotel. It was night time so Anaadi takes Maithli home with him.
But at his home everyone thinks Maithli is Anaadi's wife and they welcome her as their daughter in-law..

Anaadi tries to tell the truth to his family but isn't able to as his dad is very sick. Maithli too tries to contact Shaurya but she isn't able to.

While Bhavri and Shaurya think they are husband and wife. They try to get intimate with each other, but Bhavri feels something is wrong, so Shaurya takes her to a sacred temple where a priest tells Bhavri that the person with whom she is right now is her distiny. Bhavri is relived and as a part of a ritual at the temple, they do a ritual wedding with all the tradaitions. Later on they get intimate with eachother, and consumate their marriage.

Maihtli and Anadi try hard to look for their partners but they are unable to, while Anadi's family keeps thinking of Maithli as their daughter in-law and they handle her many responsibilites.

Shaurya is called to his army base, and there at the train station Anadi sees Bhavri. He shows her their wedding pictures, and Bhavri is left speechless.
