Mehek Zee World
The telenovela features Mehek, a timid stay-at-home woman with social anxiety and passion for preparing food. Her life changes upon meeting with Shaurya, a top chef. As fate would have it, Mehek and Shaurya fall in love when their cooking styles clash.
Mehek full story
The story of Mehek Sharma unfolds in Delhi, where she meets Shaurya Khanna, a wealthy restaurateur. The two chefs engage in a strong romantic relationship, which suffers several struggles soon after. Their misunderstandings escalate when Mehek’s workmate, Saurabh, falls in love with her.
Unlike Shaurya, Mehek comes from a humble background and is without enough confidence. She enjoys cooking for a hobby, a skill she acquired from her deceased mother. She meets Shaurya at a cooking competition over which he was presiding as judge.
Her skill with the pot impresses Ajay, her future husband, and gains the attention of his materialistic family. Meanwhile, Shaurya insistently puts her down with insults during the shooting. Mehek reaches a point where she can no longer hold in the humiliation and retaliates by slapping Shaurya. The chief chef immediately realizes his mistake, prompting Mehek to accept his apology.
Mehek accepts a hand of marriage from Saurabh. Nehal, a cousin to Mehek, is secretly in a relationship with Ajay, who rejects her. In response, Nehal attempts suicide, but Shaurya arrives in time to her rescue. Shaurya plays a trick on Ajay, shattering the wedding in the process. The bond between Mehek and Shaurya strengthens. His mother, Karuna (who fixes marriage between the two) remains supportive, even as Shaurya goes ahead to prove himself to the family of Mehek.

Mehek must deal with a strange turn of events on her wedding day! It turns out that Shaurya will not show up because he is abroad to promote his new restaurant. Sadly, he has taken with him her recipes as well as their patents. It occurs to her that Shaurya has been tactfully plotting his revenge on her.
Mehek makes up her mind to stay with the family of Shaurya to awaken his love for her. Shaurya masterminds the eloping of Mehek’s best friend, Sonal, and her brother, Mohit. Shaurya must shoulder all the blames when Mohit and Mehek's grandmother suffers a severe heart attack. This, in turn, triggers Mehek’s uncle to revenge by vandalizing Shaurya’s restaurants. Shaurya responds by bringing down their shops with a bulldozer.
Mehek finally leaves after losing her hope on Shaurya. Ajay and Rohit, Sonal’s ex, abducts Mehek in an attempt to rape her. After sustaining severe injuries, Shaurya shows up in time and saves her from their hands. The Sharmas take Mehek and blame Shaurya following the incident. They, however, accept him later after learning what happened.
Who will Mehek marry? Shaurya arranges for Mehek’s security ahead of their wedding day. The chief officer handling Mehek’s security reveals a secret that breaks Shaurya’s heart. He informed Shaurya that Mehek was a surviving orphan after losing her two parents in a grisly accident that Shaurya caused twelve years earlier. Even in his state of shock, Shaurya proceeds to marry Mehek.
Their union gets rocky when Mehek finally discovers Shaurya’s deception. She is deeply hurt but fakes her happiness for the sake of her family. The displeased Sharmas reopens the case after knowing the truth, resulting in Karuna’s arrest. The incident clears up the misunderstanding between the two families.
In other developments, Mehek witnesses as Archie murders, while on her honeymoon at Rishikesh. Archie attempts to kill Mehek in a drowning incident, and Shaurya's wife is believed to be dead. One year later when Shaurya returns to Rishikesh, he runs into Vandana who looks exactly like Mehek. He manages to restore Vandana's memory, and Archie faces an attack that ends with his life lost. Shaurya and Mehek return home with an adopted kid, Neev.
Will Mehek get pregnant for Shaurya? Anjali, an illegitimate daughter to Karuna, ends up creating misunderstandings between Karuna and her daughter-in-law. She causes Karuna to send Shaurya and Mehek out of her house. Karuna goes ahead to declare Anjali as her sole heir. However, Karuna accepts Mehek back into her house when she learns of her pregnancy. Anjali’s evil plan surfaces leading to her imprisonment.
While under incarceration, Anjali meets Svetlana, an aunt to Shaurya and they plan to break from jail. However, the plot backfires with the killing of Anjali, and Svetlana protects herself by arguing that she was preventing the escape. She regains her freedom in the process and returns home, pretending to be blind. She plots massive revenge targeting the Sharmas and Khannas. She succeeds in taking away the lives of several members of these families in a bomb attack and even succeeds in shooting Shaurya and Mehek.
In an unforeseen turn of events, the season begins with the rebirth of Shaurya in an affluent homestead, and Mehek in a poor family where she faces rejection from her father for being a girl. Mehek grows to become a courageous and bold tomboy, who easily picks fights. Shaurya, on the other hand, trains to become a boxer, and his father is determined for him to win a gold medal someday.
Shaurya and Mehek see petrifying visions of their past realities. They both join a similar centre for boxing training. Svetlana turns to the assistance of a superstitious baba in an attempt to separate Mehek and Shaurya through death. She kills Swati, a sister to Mehek, for trying to shield her sister.
What happened at the end of Mehek? Will Mehek and Shaurya die? After killing Swati, Svetlana proceeds to shoot at Mehek, who survives and scares her back in the appearance of a ghost. Shaurya and Mehek plot to scare Svetlana to the point of revealing all her secrets. Svetlana does not succeed in her mission to kill the couple but instead faces her death. Finally, the two marry and live happily as a couple.
