Harsh stole from the company Rajeev worked for, and the blame went on Rajeev, Harsh whilst stealing, got shot and fell in the river, his body wasn't found but because he had Rajeev's identity card, the blame went on Rajeev and the police are after him. Rajeev's truth is out and Singh family have accepted him as he is a kind man and soon will marry Mahua.
Bua (Jaya Bhattacharya): Sagar's Bua. Entered the show as a messiah for Vidya and has helped Vidya fight her battle against Sindoora. Its all thanks to Bua that Vidya is educated. Bua has truly bought justice and helped Vidya in every possible way to win over Sindoora.
'.and now here's the story so far (Compiled by Ammu & Nabihah)'.
Banoo Main Teri Dulhann starts of in the holy city of Benares, with Vidya, who is strongly devoted to her god, and believes her happiness lies in the happiness of her mother. Simple-minded, devoted, patient and loving, Vidya's only curse is that she is illiterate. Her only family is her widowed mother Kaushalya, and her Chachi Hema, her Chacha and her cousin Shalu. Her Chachi and Chacha are money minded and treat Vidya and her mother like servants.
To add to her misery she is harassed by the town thug, Harsh. Vidya's life changes when Thakur Pratap Singh comes to Benares, with his wife, looking for a bride for his son, Saagar. Vidya's Aunt tries to parade Shalu as the perfect girl, and asks Vidya to stay out of sight, but fate has something else in mind, and the Singh's meet Vidya through Chinu, who helps her get away from Harsh. They find her the most suitable wife for Saagar. Vidya agrees to marry Saagar, upon urging from her best friend Radha, without knowing that the Saagar has the mentality of an eight year old.
The truth is revealed to her on the day of her marriage, she is devastated, but later on agrees to marry him. Their wedding is done against the wishes of the Thakur's elder daughters, Sindoora, Mahua, and Chandra. They refure to accept Vidya as a bride (Dulhann) of their house, and Sindoora fights to break the marriage. This results in an altercation between daughter and father, and the Thakur, who is ill, dies. Before his death he makes Vidya promise that she will always remain beside Sagar. Vidya promises but finds a strong adversary in Sindoora, and her two sisters, who leave her in Benaraes telling her that she isn't wanted.
Vidya follows her destiny to Delhi, at the Singh mansion, but is shunned. Sindoora drives Saagar against Vidya, by blaming her for their father's death. She plots against Vidya and gets her arrested, but Vidya is saved by Aniket, Sindoora's husband, the only person Sindoora fears, because he knows her secrets. With him is also his, son, Bharat who is attached to his uncle.
Even though met with resistance, Vidya slowly and steadily, much against Sindoora's liking makes a place in Saagar's heart, and they both fall in love with each other. The more time Vidya spends with the family the more she realizes about Saagar's past and that his current mental condition. She prays and works towards Saagar's recovery but is often deterred by Sindoora, who tries at all cost to make Saagar's health worse.
Viewing Vidya as a threat sindoora tries to discourage Vidya, and plot against her into getting removed from the house and the Singh family, but as of yet still remained unsuccessful. Vidya is always supported by Chinu and Bharat her loyal supporters who have full faith in her, and believe that her influence and devotion can help cure Saagar. In addition to Sindoora's constant schemes, Vidya faces tension through Harsh also, who to get close to her and looking to inherit some of the Singh Property elopes with Chandra.
Her Chachi pretending to be a well-wisher also moves in, hoping to take advantage of Vidya's marriage, and lap up the luxuries, by constantly trying to set her daughter, Shalu up with Sagar, or any available rich bachelor. Shalu ends up getting married to Chinu by tricking him into believing that she is pregnant. Chachi thinking that through Chinu she can hope to inherit some money, schemes up Shalu's pregnancy. After the marriage, she is devastated to know that Chinu has no part or share in the property.
Another person set against Vidya is Surili, an arrogant and temperamental actress, who identifies herself as Saagar's ex-girlfriend. She abandons Saagar due to his mental illness, but because of financial troubles schemes up an illegimate child of Saagar's and hers to inherit some money. She picks up a mute boy Sameer and plants him in the Singh family as Saagar's son. Saagar is miffed at the possibility of having a son, and doesn't accept Sameer, Vidya believing Sameer to be the heir to the Singh family convinces Saagar to be accept Sameer, but Surili takes all the credit for the patch in Saagar's and Sameer's relationship, with Sindoora's help. Sindoora uses Surili as an ally to get rid of Vidya, by trying to convince the family that Vidya is threatened by Sameer.
Vidya is helped by Tusshar, Saagar's college friend who sees through Surili. He along with Bharat and Chinu prove Vidya's innocence and Surili's plot. She is ousted from the family, and Saagar and Vidya adopt Sameer as their son. Tusshar also helps Sameer find his voice. Saagar seeing Tusshar ability as adult to be so helpful, and egged on by Harsh expresses the desire to be normal like everyone else.
During this time Sindoora and Aniket also go through a rough patch in their relationship as it is revealed that Sindoora is the one responsible for Saagar's accident. Sindoora tries to patch the relationship by pretending to turn over a new leaf, by showing care and concern for Saagar.
Saagar, on the other hand, expresses a strong desire to become normal. In his frustration at his condition he lashes out, and decides that because of his condition, he can't give Vidya the life he deserves, and pretends to be insane. He is admitted to the hospital where Sindoora gets the doctor to misdiagnose Saagar, and hinder his health.
During this period the family urges Vidya to get married to Tusshar, but she refuses. She is emotionally blackmailed into marrying him, and finally agrees. A messiah comes into the life of Saagar and Vidya, in the form of Shivani. An interning doctor, she examines Saagar's case and realized that that he is misdiagnosed and helps Saagar escape. Vidya attempts suicide as she is committed to Saagar and doesn't wish to marry Tusshar, as the family urges. The wedding doesn't take place and Vidya and Saagar are reunited in the hospital where Shivani tells a shocked Vidya that the person against Saagar is someone within the family. She also suggests an operation that can help in getting Saagar get cured in Singapore.
Saagar and Vidya with the help of Bharat plan a trip to Singapore, and meet many difficulties but are finally able to go with the help of D.J. a con artist. In Singapore he ditches them taking most of their money. With just enough money for Saagar's operation, his procedure is scheduled. Before his procedure Sindoora realizing the full gist of Vidya's and Saagar's plan, pays some thugs to kidnap Saagar to keep him from receiving his surgery. Saagar manages to escape, and undergoes the surgery.
Sindoora reaches Singapore alone, just after Saagar's surgery and manages to get him away while Vidya is visiting the temple, praying for Saagar's health. She also slips in drugs in Vidya's handbag.
Vidya follows them to the airport where a recovered Saagar gains consciousness, but is caught in the airport for trafficking drugs, and calls out to Saagar, hoping that he can clear the misunderstanding. Saagar now fully recovered, has no recollection of the past two years of his life, as a child, and fails to recognize Vidya, devastating her.
Sindoora brings Saagar back to India where he finds out about the two years of his life lost, and plans to start a life a new. Sindoora keeps Saagar from knowing about his marriage, and about Vidya, emotionally blackmailing the family, that any stress brought to Saagar could possibly reverse his mental health. She also lies to the family that Vidya had abandoned Saagar in Singapore and left with all the money. The family finds out that this is not true, through a news broadcast.
In Singapore, D.J. runs into Vidya in the jail, and seeing her condition develops a guilty conscience and vows to help her escape. He helps her escape, and returns her to India. When Vidya returns Saagar fails to recognize her, but Sindoora identifies Vidya as his attendant, who was in charge of taking care of him.
Vidya is crushed but agrees to live with the pretense hoping that she can make a place in Saagar's heart once again, and that he will soon remember her and their marriage.
While Vidya is staying on as his attendant, she faces many difficulties. Saagar treats her as a servant, and is confused by everyone treating Vidya as a family member. During this time Mahua expresses her wish to marry Lallan, Harsh's friend.
Vidya is also trying to find out based on a clues suplied to her by DJ that who is responsible for the attempt on Saagar's life in Singapore.
Sindoora frames Harsh, and with the help of Vidya, Harsh is thrown out of the house.
Saagar later on finds out that Vidya is actually his wife, and has to deal with the fact that Vidya is uneducated. He tries to work at forming a relationship with Vidya but finds it hard to do so.
In his attempt to send her away he emotionally connects with Vidya and consumates his marriage with Vidya. He feels guilty the morning after, and is unable to tell Vidya to leave.
Sindoora continues to plot to get Saagar & Vidya separated so that Vidya can not discover the truth about her.
Vidya finds out that Sindoora is the person behind the attacks behind Saagar, and is highly disturbed. She tries to gather proof but is outsmarted by Sindoora. Saagar gets mad when Vidya accuses Sindoora and refuses to listen.
In another attempt at Saagar's life, Aniket is injured, and Saagar blames Vidya. Aniket having found out the truth about Sindoora is unable to reveal anything as the accident leaves him paralysed.
Buaji of the Thakur household comes in, and is concerned about the happenings of the house. Sindoora tries to poison her against Vidya, by claiming that Vidya is only after Saagar's money.
Buaji is momentarily fooled, but realizes Vidya's goodness and soon joins forces with Vidya behind Sindoora's back.
Another character is introduced who claims to be Harsh, and claims to be Chandra's husband. Everyone is suspicious but Chandra confirms that it is Harsh, and he's got face surgery.
Buaji helps Saagar come close to Vidya, but Saagar has a problem with Vidya being uneducated. Behind his back Vidya takes lessons to improve her education.
Sindoora paints Vidya as having an affair, but her plan falls back on her as Saagar realizes that Vidya was only trying to educate herself. He starts falling for Vidya. He and Vidya grow closer to Sindoora's dismay.
The false Harsh also grows close to Mahua who is torn between the loyalty to her sister, and her own heart.
Sindoora tries another attempt at Saagar's life and he nearly dies. Vidya's prayers & the false Harsh's blood bring him back to life, and Vidya vows to go against Sindoora.
After Saagar recovers he's completely devoted to Vidya. The investigation to his accident continues, and Sindoora tries to frame the recovering Aniket.
During this period the truth is revealed on the truth of Harsh, and that he is actually Rajeev. He is in love with Mahua, and turns himself in to the police. He promises to come back to Mahua.
Buaji and Vidya plot to trap Sindoora, and to prevent Sindoora from transferring the property in her name invent that Vidya is pregnant. Vidya plays along hesitantly, while Saagar's happiness has no bounds.
Sindoora is successful in framing Aniket and everyone in the family is devastated. Aniket is arrested, and Sindoora next plots to take Buaji away.
She leads Buaji away in pretense of loosing her son, and has Buaji taken care of.
Chandra on the other hand unhappy with the turn out of Rajeev tries to sabotage Mahua. Rajeev comes back and declares his love for Mahua.
Vidya unaware of Buaji's fate tries to get Sindoora, but is unsucessful. Sindoora finds out that Vidya isn't pregnant, and uses it against her to break Saagar & Vidya apart.
Vidya tries to explain but a heartbroken Saagar is too numb to respond. Vidya is thrown out of the house by Sindoora, and Saagar and Vidya are both heartbroken.
In Benares Vidya runs into Harsh again who swears that he has changed and offers Vidya a home with his grandmother.
Saagar on the other hand sees Vidya everywhere, and decides to got to Benares to win his love back, much to Sindoora's dismay.
Saagar reaches Benares in the nick of time to save his wife from the goons that Harsh tries to sell Vidya to. He is also attacked by the goons sent by Sindoora to kill him.
Saagar is injured again, and Vidya prays for his recovery. Saagar's injury brings back all his memories and he remembers that Sindoora is behind his accident.
He apologizes to Vidya, and together they plan to get take revenge against Sindoora and have her arrested for her crime.
Saagar pretends to become mad again, and says that he doesn't have any recollection of Vidya. On the side he plots to get a confession from Sindoora.
He also enlists Chinu's help, and along with DJ and another police officer they are able to get a confession from Sindoora.
Sindoora finds out the truth that Saagar isn't really mad and plots to kill both Saagar & Vidya before they can submit the proof.
Saagar and Vidya run away but are unable to get away. They hide the proof in a box near a Shiv statue.
Sindoora confronts them and kills them. With Sagar dying first followed by Vidya, the two vow to return to take their revenge.
The show then takes a 20 years leap:
