    Naamkaran starts off about the painful life of 10 year old Avni Ayesha, an illegitimate child who lives alone with her mother Ayesha Haider, and maternal grandmother Nanno. Her father is the famous film director Ashish Mehta who lives separately from them and meets them in secret due to society and his mother, Dayawanti Mehta – a deeply religious Hindu woman who disapproves of his relationship with the Muslim Ayesha. The story revolves around Dayawanti rejecting Avni at every step determined for her son to break his relations with his “illegitimate” family. Ashish is forced to marry Neela, the kind-hearted daughter of a rich businessman. Neela finds out his truth only later. Meanwhile, Avni becomes best friends with Neela who helps Avni in her battle for justice.

    Avni at one point tries to make her heartbreaking story public, thinking it would help her in some way, by making a movie out of her life. Just after the movie’s launch, Ayesha is injured in an accident arranged by Dayawanti. Ayesha gives birth to Aman,she ragains conscious after Avni playing the Azaan and as Avni went to tell the doctors, in her absence, Dayawanti suffocated and murdered Ayesha and takes baby Aman in as her family heir, renaming him Amol. With help from Neela and her best friend Ali, Avni proves Dayawanti killed Ayesha but Dayawanti manipulates an emotionally distraught Ashish into believing that Avni killed her own mother. Ashish, blindly believing his mother, sends Avni behind bars. Neela gets her out of prison and gets ready to leave with Avni. Dayawanti tricks Avni into meeting her alone at a clifftop and shoots her. Avni falls into the water below.
