Maheshwari is surprised to see the hermitage heads come to see her. Mathadhish tells Maheshwari that it has been 12 years since Raj Purohit's illness and it is high time they announce the next royal priest. Viraat feels happy when Mathadhish tells Maheshwari that they have decided that the coronation of Viraat as the royal priest will be held during the upcoming religious ceremony. But before he can accept the proposal, Mohini tells them that Raj Purohit wished to make his youngest grandson the royal priest. Padma gets elated with the news and thanks Maheshwari. Later, Daima gets shocked when Barkha informs her that Dev will be coming to meet Raj Purohit. Dev manages to get in the room without being noticed, but Rohan gets suspicious when he sees Barkha closing the window pane of Raj Purohit's room. However, Barkha manages to keep Rohan at bay while Dev meets Raj Purohit. Dev and Daima get relieved when they see a slight movement in Raj Purohit's body. Dev then leaves but Rohan sees him running away. Rohan sports a vicious smile when he comes to know that Barkha is Radhika's best friend.
Choti Bahu is the love saga of two soul mates Dev and Radhika.
Radhika, a Brahmin by birth, was adopted and brought up by a family of weavers in a small town called Rawal. Dev, whose family has been in the service of Rajpurohits for generations, visits Rawal as a child on the occasion of Radhashtami. Dev and Radhika meet each other and become good friends. Radhika and Dev's families tie them in the bond of marriage in their tender age.
Maheshwari (played by Pragati Mehra), the eldest bahu of the Purohits, hopes to inherit Dadaji's property. However, her plans hit a snag when Maheshwari realizes that Dadji has willed all his property is in the name of Choti Bahu.
Undeterred, Maheshwari decides to find a docile girl for Rohan (played by Apurva Agnihotri). Maheshwari plans to own the property by controlling and manipulating the Choti Bahu and to this end chooses Radhika for Rohan. Destiny brings Dev and Radhika together after 15 years, when he returns to Rawal after 15 years to find out about Radhika, Rohan's bride.
Will Dev recognize Radhika? Will Radhika marry Dev or Rohan? Will Radhika become the Choti Bahu of Purohit House?
