After marriage, Renu finds out that her husband has a previous wife. This led to a deterioration in their relationship and Renu divorced her husband and moved in with her mother. After that, when the relationship is normal again, Renu and Mukul start living together. At one stage Renu goes to Gazipur for work. There she fell in love with a man named Al Amin. When Renu’s husband Mukul came to know about the matter, the relationship between the two deteriorated. Recently, Renu Al Amin visited his mother’s house. After knowing the matter, Mukul came to Chinta Rishi’s house to catch them red-handed. Meanwhile, Chinta Rishi divided Renu and Al Amin by a trick before Mukul arrived.
