Laagi Tujse Lagan is a love story set in a rural gangster background. The show starts with Nakusha, a dark girl who lives with her mother (Babi), father (Ganpat) and little brother (Sethji).
Nakusha is a beautiful, fair girl in reality but was forced to conceal her beauty to avoid any person taking undue advantage of her beauty as the same had happened with her older sister. Malmal More, the local corrupt police officer, learns the truth while chasing Nakusha and Sethji and arranges their engagement. On the day of the engagement, Babi learns the truth that Malmal More is going to sell Nakusha off in Dubai and she run aways with her family. Running away with Malmal More on their heels, they meet Dutta Bhau.
Dutta Bhau saves Nakusha's life but is injured. Nakusha refuses to leave Dutta in such a state (as he saved her life); she brings him to the hospital and donates blood to him. Under the debt of saving his life, Dutta brings Nakusha and her family to live with his family as their servant. There, we learn about the three sisters, Kalavati (Kala), Leelavati (Leela) and Roopwati (Roops), and their love for their brother. Kala keeps burning a lamp on her palm all night long, Leela ringing the temple bell continuously and Roops standing on one foot. We see Dutta coming to break their penance and learn the love Dutta has for his family and his childhood best friend, Bajirao. However, the same day we learn that the sisters had been doing a farce of love just for the sake of hatred and money. From there, Nakusha is seen as being a servant who does not have any fear with Dutta Bhau. She keeps advising and talking to him and encourages him to stop drinking.
The plot changes when Supriya enters the scene. Dutta's mother, worried about her son's marriage and life settlement, decides to engage Dutta to Supriya, taking the relationship ahead. Dutta, afraid of relationships due to previous betryal, is hesitant to fall in love again. He tells Nakusha the truth about how much he loved Seema and how his life changed. Deeply in love, Dutta works hard as a mechanic in a garage so as to be able to build his house and live with Seema after marriage. But One night after waiting for her in vain for hours at the lake, Dutta goes to the garage and discovers Seema in the arms of his employer. Enraged and insulted by Seema who says that she loves people who can provide her with luxury and disgraces Dutta's love, he starts killing and tries to punish Seema. She goes away from his life but Dutta is marked forever. He Changes from Dutta Shriram Patil, a simple & hard working guy, to Dutta Bhau, a local gangster along with Bajirao.
Nakusha encourages Dutta to give life a new chance and to accept Supriya. But she discovers with time that she has fallen in love with him. She conceals her love and continues to persuade Dutta who slowly starts seeing Supriya as a woman and takes a liking to her. Supriya is in love with another man, Ravi, who later comes to the house as Supriya's bodyguard. They plan to elope but, as there are security guards night and day, they are unable to get away. Ravi tells Supriya to act as if she is in love with Dutta and wish that they start a new life so that the security would gradually lessen and they could elope. Kala learns about the love affair between Ravi and Supriya. She promises them that she will help them escape on the eve of the wedding on one condition; that Supriya lie that Nakusha helped her escape. The eve of the wedding, all preparations are done for the escape. But just as Supriya and Ravi reach the door, Nakusha catches them red-handed and discovers their love story.
