Originally set in Rishikesh, the story moves to Chandigarh after Jeevika's marriage to Viren. Maanvi and Jeevika were raised by their parents in the upscale city of Delhi. However, they are orphaned in childhood. After they lose their parents, they settle into a middle class, traditional family of Rishikesh, which is a stark contrast to their lives earlier.
