The TV show’s plot had Renuka’s elder brother, disapproving of their relationship, and ended up arranging her marriage with someone else, emotionally blackmailing her to comply. When the former lovers meet after a few years, both are married to other people. Their love for each other is as strong as ever, and they start seeing each other often, though in a platonic way. The show’s music was composed by Talat Aziz and sung by late ghazal singer Jagjit Singh.
Renuka is known for sharing her viewpoint on several issues. She was last in news when she wrote a strong post in support of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, after he was attacked on the sets of Padmavati by the Rajput Karni Sena.
