Will Amita be able to stop Amit?

"Amita Ka Amit", the show about a couple and their respective families, will take an unexpected turn as the male lead Amit is headed to the US.

In the show, Amit, essayed by Nishad Vaidya, and Amita, played by Chandni Bhagwanani, had an arranged marriage and eventually they fell in love with each other. But they are unable to express their feelings and now Amit's US trip complicates the situation.

Amit will be seen heading towards the airport hoping that Amita will come after him and stop him from going. He starts imagining how romantic it would have been, if Amita was by his side.

On the other hand, circumstances do not allow Amita to get in touch with Amit and let him know how much she wants him to stay back.

The show airs on Sony TV on week days at 8:30 p.m.
