She will be shown as Daddoo's (Sudhir Pandey) sister and will be insturmental in creating clashes in Shiv's (Siddharth Shukla) progressive family. She is vocal about her likes and dislikes and tries to impose her ideologies wherever she feels there's a hint of progression. Says Sushmita, "I play a strict regressive woman, but she has lot of shades to her.
She is the main antagonist and will represent a struggle between two idealogies." Sushmita who had taken a sabbatical from TV had done cameos in Madhubala and Housewife Hai Sab Janti Hai. This will be her major role.
