Theirs is a love story that has passed multiple tests of time and situation but there came a point when they decided for themselves to never meet again. However, true love triumphed and they broke their promises for good, eventually getting married again.
In this period drama about politics and revenge, there was a love story blooming that the kingdom could not accept. The love story was between Kala, a handmaiden, and the prince of Paurashpur, Ranveer. When Queen Meerawati finds out that her son is in love with her handmaiden, she can not accept it and tricks her into marrying the king.

Ranveer fails to rescue Kala, which eventually breaks up their love, relationship, and hence, Ranveer’s promise.
In Nail Polish, after Veer Singh gets mentally transformed into Charu Raina, a psychiatrist hypnotises him to know who Charu is. We hear Charu’s story that when she was in Kashmir, stuck in a failed marriage, Veer had come to her as a ray of hope. They had both fallen for each other and Charu was seriously in love with Veer. Veer had then promised Charu that he would take her away with him, which was also incident in the song that plays at the moment, “Le chal mujhe, door tu kahin.” However, Veer breaks the promise, as he was only faking the love for the sake of his duty. To make it worse, he also kills Charu after revealing his lies.
