Sahara One. It airs at 10:30 p.m. on Monday to Friday.
The show focusses on the protagonist Zaara Khan, who at the beginning of the show, is on the verge of tying the knot with her long time boyfriend and love Samar. But her sister Zeenat approaches her and asks her to become the second wife of her husband Aamir, Zaara's brother-in-law, the reason being Aamir's family's insistence on getting him married a second time due to Zeenat's inability to conceive and give the family an heir. Zeenat wishes only Zaara to become Aamir's second wife for she feels any other girl will take her place in Aamir's life and separate the two of them. Zaara spurns Samar and marries Aamir for her sister's happiness. After some time Zaara and Aamir fall in love with each other, and both Zeenat and Zaara conceive. However Zeenat's innate insecurity causes her to turn green at the very sight of Zaara and Aamir together. Unable to stand sharing her husband with her sister, Zeenat plots and successfully creates a rift between Zaara and Aamir. She also convinces Aamir that Khushi, Zaara's daughter, is not even his child but someone else's, the fruit of Zaara's unfaithfulness to him. Aamir divorces Zaara and she is thrown out of the house. She then realizes that it was Zeenat who all along created problems for her and ultimately separated her and Aamir, aided and abetted by none other than her first love Samar, who instead of accepting the change in situations gracefully, turned into a jealous and vengeful lover. Zaara then changes from a simple and straightforward girl to a mature and intelligent woman bent on getting justice for herself and her innocent young daughter. How she manages to outwit and punish Zeenat and Samar form the rest of the story.

Zeenat manages to bring Zaara near some cliff and shoots her, Zaara falls down the cliff, it is believed that Zaara is dead. Zaara has plastic surgery and re-enters her home in order to get revenge. She soon makes friends with everyone in the house. With the help of Sagar, Khushi's boyfriend, Zaara makes up a plan to get Zeenat's identity revealed. Zeenat tries to kill Sagar and gets caught by the entire family. Zaara asks Zeenat why she brought her in the house as Aamir's second wife. Everyone realizes that the women is actually Zaara. Gul, Zeenat's partner in crime, confesses in front of everyone that Zeenat was jealous of Zaara so she gave Zaara a hard time, killed Aamir, and tried to kill Zaara several times.
