Smitten after a chance encounter with the charming Nikhil Rao at a food conference, Pushpavalli Parasuraman moves from Bhopal to Bangalore to pursue him. Now desperate to figure out his whereabouts, Pushpavalli tries bribing a local chaiwalla with stolen data from her workplace in an attempt to to find Nikhil.
Vasu threatens to throw Pushpavalli out of the PG if she doesn’t pay her deposit by the end of the day. An ornithologist that was scheduled to conduct a bird workshop at the library cancels after being attacked by an eagle. Pushpavalli steps in to host the workshop in the hope of earning some extra money, until she hears that Nikhil is outside T-boi's shop.
Vasu agrees to let Pushpavalli cook breakfast for the PG after not being able to pay her deposit. Pankaj has a date with a girl he met at a cycling group. Pushpavalli finds out about a wine tasting event that Nikhil is attending. Not wanting to go alone, Pushpavalli tries sabotaging Pankaj’s date plans in the hope that he will then accompany her.
Pushpavalli is coerced into meeting her mother’s Guruji who has made a trip to Bangalore. She bumps into Nikhil at the Guruji’s Ashram and is still embarrassed after their last meeting. Meanwhile at the library, Pankaj who now thinks Nikhil is the one stalking Pushpavalli, thinks she might be in danger.
Pushpavalli still has strong feelings for Nikhil but isn’t sure what he thinks. She decides to take him to a stand up comedy show where she hopes that a comedian will tease them as a couple and elicit a response from Nikhil. At the library, Pushpavalli receives a special package from her mother.
With all their cycles synchronized, it’s that time of the month for everyone at the PG. As a result, Pushpavalli has exiled herself from the PG kitchen, much to Vasu’s annoyance. Pushpavalli learns that Nikhil and Swati know each other. After hearing that Nikhil’s mother is unwell, Pushpavalli decides to use it as an excuse to turn up at his house.
Vasu is furious at the girls after she finds someone has ‘done kaka’ on the terrace. Nikhil tells Pushpavalli that Dukie is missing. After helping search for his dog, Pushpavalli begins to panic when Nikhil tells her that Dukie is diabetic and hasn’t eaten since the previous day. At the library, Pankaj is greeted by a large German Shepherd.
After getting fired from the children’s library and having Swati take credit for finding Dukie, Pushpavalli makes a last ditch attempt to get Nikhil’s attention: Breaking her leg. After all, Nikhil did help Swati’s son Arhaan when he broke his leg. Things don’t quite go according to plan and Pushpavalli goes further past the point of no return.
After spending time regrouping in Bhopal, Pushpavalli is back in Bangalore... for her engagement? But who is getting engaged to? Does this mean the Nikhil Rao chapter is over?
Pushpavalli tries to get her old job back at the library from Pankaj and tries to get Nikhil's Bhindi consignment date using T-Boi. Pankaj deals with reptile week as she stealthily gets her job back. But looks like she has no place to stay. Does she go back?
Pushpavalli lives in the PG but secretly. With Nikhil planning to cancel his Bhindi consignment, Pushpavalli makes complicated travel plans for Arhaan at the library. Meanwhile Pankaj and T-Boi discover the thrill of marble competition.
Vasu's suspicion continues to grow as Pushpavalli's presence begins to leave clues. Nikhil has trouble with his okra consignment and the water at his packhouse. He turns to Pushpavalli for help, which she orchestrated?
Pankaj begrudgingly takes Nikhil to the Municipal corporation to help him with his Land Ownership Document, to seem confident and cool to Swati. Vidyuth is back in town and eager to meet Pushpavalli. But Pushpavalli ditches him to help Nikhil. Is revenge no longer on her mind?
Pushpavalli is finally forced to visit her in-laws and Vidyuth. Things get confusing and uncomfortable for her when Vidyuth tries to get close to her, physically. Meanwhile Swati's return from China town brings up complicated feelings for Pankaj that end well?
Pankaj tries to break up Pushpavalli's marriage by facing down Vidyuth and her parents. Pushpavalli spends time with Nikhil at the packhouse only to face a hard truth with him and at the PG.
