Raj Purohit tells Padma that after Harilal married her, he never met Chhaya. Raj Purohit further tells Padma that he was taken aback when Harilal had told him on his deathbed about Chhaya's pregnancy. Since the situation was not appropriate for Padma to know anything about Harilal and Chhaya's relation, he had kept it a secret. Raj Purohit further adds that he had not seen or heard of Chhaya after she gave birth to Dev. Padma, who is crying profoundly, does not say anything. Later, Raj Purohit asks Mathadhish whether he still has any objection with his decision of making Dev the royal priest. Mathadhish tells Raj Purohit that even he feels that Dev is the best person for the post. Finally, Raj Purohit announces that once Dev turns 23, he will be names as the royal priest. Viraat is very furious as he feels that all their efforts have gone in vain. On the other hand, Maheshwari is feeling worried as she fears that sooner or later, Raj Purohit will reprimand her.
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?
