Ishq Mai Tere is about two friends, Ayeza (played by Mehwish Hayat and Laiba (Mediha Imam). Ayeza is a senior of Laiba’s in university and also the latter’s tutor. Even though their lifestyles are totally different, this does not stop them from enjoying each others company.
Ayeza lives with her brother and his wife as well as their two kids. By tutoring, Ayeza helps with the household expenses but her brother’s wife is desperate to get her married off and is always finding faults in Ayeza. Her brother is not much of a responsible person and constantly gets into fights with his wife. Ayeza’s main focus is to get her family out of their miserable situation and to improve their standard of living. Hence, Ayeza is shown as a very mature and selfless person.
Laiba on the other hand comes from a rich but broken home. She lives with her father, her taijan who is a widow and her cousin Saad. Despite having everything, Laiba does not have the love and presence of her mother who is shown as a woman who cared only about her own life and her social commitments instead of her daughter.
Because of their bond, Laiba confides in Ayeza about her feelings for Saad who seems oblivious to the fact that she is in love with him. The story gets interesting as Saad spots Ayeza in his home when she accompanies Laiba to pick up a file. He instantly falls for her and her beauty. Hence a love triangle is formed at that moment.
