A parallel story is that of Zain (Imran Abbas), the son of a wealthy business man. Zain is a carefree man who is obsessed with beauty. He once sees Nishaal and falls madly in love with her beauty and tries to approach her. A misunderstanding leads him to believe that the name of the girl he loves is Rabail. He thinks that Nishaal is Rabail. He meets Nishaal on numerous occasions, first Nishaal ignores him but then grows a liking for him too. Zain discovers that the girl he loves is the daughter of his father’s friend Asad Niazi, and sends a proposal for “Rabail”. Rabail, under pressure from Nishal, tricks Umair into going college to study and promises that she’d wait for him and would not marry anyone else. Umair is satisfied and he happily leaves. But the original plan of Rabail, Nafeesa and Nishaal is to get Rabail married.
Nishaal finally finds out that the proposal that has come for Rabail is of Zain. Both Zain and Nishaal are heartbroken because they had fallen in love, even though they had not spent much time together. Nishaal tells Zain about her newly developed feelings for him because she had come to see him as her “ideal” man, but Zain refuses because for the first time in his life, he had made his father proud and happy and Zain does not want to spoil this new, sweet relationship with his father, so he sacifices his love and gets married to Rabail. Umair gets to know about the betrayal and he reaches the Nikkaah ceremony, but Rabail is already married to Zain. Umair has a nervous breakdown
