While he is checking on Mala, the snake bites Raj's leg. Mala awakens and saves him, however she is poisoned in the process.

Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat is an Indian television series which aired on Star Plus between 2008 and 2010.[1][2] The show outlined the journey of Rani, who goes from being a servant of a palace to being the queen of Rajkumar Yudhistir.[3] The serial was produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms for M-Net Original Production.[4]


Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat is the journey of a Rani as she goes from a servant to the queen of the palace and how she manages the responsibilities of a queen and the elder daughter-in-law. After many obstacles, Rajkumar Yudhistir and Rani finally unite.

Rani gives birth to a daughter. Ira, a ghost, was in love with Rani's husband, Kuvar Yuddishter; she came as the baby's nanny. Rani comes in disguise of an old woman Bhoomi to find out about Ira. Bhoomi finds out that Ira's real name is Mohini and about how wicked she was in her past and her home, Bhavan-bitti-ki-kotri. Ira disables Bhoomi's speech so she can't tell anyone about her evilness. After a battle, Rani manages to win and Bhoomi gets back her speech.

Rani and Yudishter both die in a car accident, leaving their young daughter, Sandhya alone. At first, Sandhya was named Mohini but, upon realizing that Ira's real name was Mohini, they changed it. Mohini (Ira) curses Sandhiya as she dies, to seek revenge from Rani that her face becomes ugly at dusk. A new maid Sajili has come to their palace, only to steal. She has a thief son, Virendra/Viru. Viru along with his friend, Balma, pretends to be the prince Kuvar Veer to fool the royal family. Raja Sahib and Choti Rani plan a wedding with Viru and Sandhiya as they think her marriage with Virendra will break Mohini (Ira)'s spell. Rudra and Bhoomi are not shown. Kuvar Aryaman, Bhoomi and Rudhr's son, who is younger than Sandhiya, has put a man called Rajveer in Viru's place. Sandhiya has accepted her marriage with Rajveer. They both plan to seduce Sandhya.

Sandhya knows little that Aryaman and Rajveer are planning to ruin her life. They also created a duplicate Sandhya by cloning her by taking blood samples, hair, skin, nails etc. Later Aryaman and Rajveer apologise the royal family and Sandhya as well. The duplicate is said to be destroyed and Mohini's spell is recovered. Then the serial ends in a happy note as the whole cast re-assembles.
