Unfortunately, the situation gets intense when she comes face to face with the evil maidens, who are related to her by blood. Vrinda, one of the evil maidens chained in the palace happens to be her mother.

Love or Poison full story
Love or Poison, an Indian drama, is based on Sitara’s story, who does not know that she is a Vish Kanya, poisoned girl until she reaches 20 years old. Sitara’s journey to find her true identity leads her on a dangerous mission, putting the lives of her loved ones at risk.
Care and curiosity
The story begins after the abduction of Chanda, Sitara’s ally. Once she realises Chanda is missing, she becomes nervous and restless fearing that she might be in danger. Without a doubt, she is convinced that she might be in the palace.
Sitara storms the palace to begin her search. However, her father does not approve of her decision. She vows to go deeper into the forbidden areas of the palace. On the other hand, Kuldeep becomes increasingly worried that she might discover the long-kept secret.
Freedom at last
The Love or Poison soapie becomes more interesting when Sitara finds a secret door in the palace. Due to curiosity, she opens the door setting the Vish Kanyas free. Generally, Vish Kanyas are girl assassins. They are fed poison from a young age until they become poison immune. In ancient times, they were used as weapons.
First things first, Vrinda, the queen Vish Kanya, vows to avenge. She is bitter for being shackled for a long time in the secret room. However, her freedom is threatened by a few supernatural individuals, Rajguru and Sitara. Once he realises Vrinda has been set free, Rajguru embarks on a mission to confine her again. Will Vrinda give in easily to be confined again?
Vrinda is not ready to give in without a fight. To escape captivity forever, she strategises to control Sitara’s mind using her powers. At first, villagers brand Sitara a Vish Kanya. So, they join forces to bury her alive. However, that does not happen.
Later, Vrinda notices something different about Sitara. Using her powers, she discovers that Sitara is her biological daughter. Similarly, Rajguru is aware of Sitara’s identity, and so he forbids her from attending Viraj’s wedding ceremony.
Earlier, prince Viraj helped Sitara to save her friend, Chanda. Their first meeting was an interesting one. Maybe with time, they may become closer than they are now. Later, Rajguru gives his servants strict orders to abduct and bury Sitara alive because of her association with the Vish Kanyas. The incident causes suspicion in the Singh family, who embarks on a mission to rescue her before she passes on.
Jealousy, vengeance, and deception
Trouble befalls the palace when Viraj disappears mysteriously. Early, Netra, the newlywed wife of Viraj, was uncomfortable about Sitara’s presence in the palace. She is against the idea of her being around Viraj all the time. However, they later discover that he has been abducted by the Vish Kanyas.
The Vish Kanyas led by Vrinda tries to poison Viraj’s mind by telling him secrets about the royal family. At the same time, Rajguru goes after Vrinda and wants her dead. In an attempt to save their leader, the three Vish Kanyas combines their forces to stop Rajguru.
On the other hand, Netra becomes increasingly uneasy about Sitara’s presence. As a result, he starts to manipulate Viraj to hate Sitara, who has been assigned to be his bodyguard. Worse, she plans to murder her because she is afraid Sitara might win her fiancée’s heart.
Vrinda is almost losing her patience. Her several attempts to kill Viraj become unsuccessful. Also, Viraj starts to lose trust in Sitara slowly, something Netra has been praying for to happen. However, for how long will that last?
At last, Sitara learns the bitter truth about his mother and the Singh family. It pains her to the extent she agrees to revenge against Viraj. However, her attempt to kill him through a poisoned flower becomes futile. Further, Vrinda fakes her death to win Sitara over her side to help her kill Viraj.
At last, Viraj asks Sitara to marry him. However, Sitara turns him down for the first time. With time, she realises her mother’s plan, forcing her to confess her love for him. Desperate Vrinda becomes furious because her plan has been shattered by her daughter.
She forcefully wants her sister, Surili, to marry Viraj so that their bloodline does not become extinct. So, she drugs her daughter and abducts her. Later, her sister transforms into Sitara and marries Viraj unknowingly.
Again, Vrinda’s plan becomes unfruitful. Furious and desperate, Vrinda launches a deadly attack on the Singh family. She kills Raj Ratan, Viraj’s father and ensures the family blames it on Sitara. Unfortunately, she is arrested but Viraj discovers she is not behind the murder. So, he takes her side.
Tired of her mother's tricks, Sitara comes back determined to eliminate her for good. First, she heals Viraj who has a strange disease. Second, she overpowers Mahamata, saving her loved ones from any impending attacks from her evil mother.
