Dil Hai Tumhaara is the story of an influential widow who has everything - wealth, power, political acumen, and two lovely daughters, both dramatically different from each other, yet totally devoted to each other. While Shalu is spirited and full of mischief, Nimmi is feminine and gentle. Shalu makes friends wherever she goes and nobody is immune to her spontaneous vivacity. Yet for Saritaji, this lovely child is a thorn embedded in her heart. She smothers the quiet Nimmi with her love, while ignoring & undermining poor Shalu.
