My Identity starlife: Full story, plot summary, casts, teasers


My Identity starlife series is about Avni Ayesha who was born out of wedlock but determined to lose the illegitimate identity the society and her grandmother has forced upon her. The show then takes 15 years leap where the story shifts to an adult Avni and her complicated relationship with Neil.

My Identity starlife Full story:

Avni Ayesha is an illegitimate child who lives with her mother, Ayesha Haider. Avni’s father is the famous film director Ashish Mehta who meets them in secret due to his mother, Dayawanti Mehta; a deeply religious Hindu woman who disapproves of his relationship with Ayesha who is a Muslim. Dayawanti rejects Avni at every step determined for her son to break his relations with his “illegitimate” family.

Ashish is forced to marry Neela Parikh, a kind-hearted lady. Avni becomes friends with Neela who helps Avni in her battle for justice by fighting against Dayawanti for Avni’s rights.

Avni in my Identity starlife series

Ayesha gives birth to her and Ashish’s son, Aman. Dayawanti suffocates and murders Ayesha and takes Aman away renaming him Amol. She also manipulates an emotionally distraught Ashish into believing that Avni killed Ayesha. Ashish, blindly believing Dayawanti, sends Avni behind bars. Neela gets her out of prison and decides to leave with Avni. Dayawanti tricks Avni into meeting her alone and shoots her but Neela saves her.

15 years later
Avni is now a grown woman and uses the name Ananya Verma. She steals money from rich people and donates it to hospitals. ACP Neil Khanna is recruited to find out her identity. Avni’s childhood friend, Ali is shown to be Neil’s best friend.

A series of events bring Avni and Neil closer. Meanwhile, Aman is shown to have grown into a spoilt brat. Neil starts developing a soft corner for Avni after Neela tells him about her childhood. After a series of investigations, it is revealed that Ashish was murdered by Dayawanti after he had discovered that she was Ayesha’s murderer. Dayawanti is arrested. Neil gets critically injured in a bomb blast but is saved by Avni. It is revealed that the blast was planned by Aman, who is working for Dayawanti.

Avni and Neil

Neil falls in love with Avni. Aman realises Dayawanti has been using him and turns over a new leaf. Circumstances end in Aman burning Dayawanti alive, which results in her death and him being sentenced. Avni forgives Aman and feels proud of him for getting justice for their mother Ayesha.

Juhi tells Neil about “their” illegitimate daughter, Mishti who is being held captive by Vidyut. Avni rescues Mishti and they bond. It is then revealed that Mishti is in fact Vidyut’s daughter. Avni and Neil find out Juhi’s truth and get her to confess. Vidyut makes it look like Avni shot Juhi forcing Neil to put Avni behind bars.

6 months later.
Heartbroken by the accusation of killing Juhi and the lack of trust between her and Neil, Avni learns fighting skills in prison to fight against the crimes she didn’t commit. Neil manages to get Vidyut to confess that Avni is innocent. Neela gets shot during a black out at the Khanna house. Avni mourns over Neela’s death. Eventually, Avni and Neil consummate their relationship.

Avni, Misti and Neil

Vidyut threatens Avni to marry him in order to save Prakash. Avni decides to burn Vidyut’s house. The fire fighters find two dead bodies in the house leaving Avni’s fate unknown.

10 years later.
Neil quits his job as a police officer and becomes a radio jockey. Avni dedicates her life to the well-being of illegitimate children in an orphanage. She takes care of Sayesha, who is actually Mishti, along with other orphaned children. Sayesha is shown to be an aspiring singer and an ardent fan of actor Karan Kapoor.

Avni decides to leave the city with her and Neil’s son Mowgli so that Neil can start a new life with Mitali while Mitali asks Neil to return to Avni as he can only be happy with her. Thus, Avni and Neil reunite.

  1. Hie i am from zimbabwe i am one of the biggest fans of your programme especially my identinty but the thing is why would ayesha died she was suppoe to die so that she could takes her revenge with avni and neela where is that identity comes from because avani will grow up and do good things so that the mehta’s will be known by avni’s good deeds and at the end daywanti would accept her thats my opinion on my side i am seeing some error and avni’s movie was suppose to be out published so she will be known

  2. Exactly Cynthia this move doesn’t have a direction now and 💯 boring … the first part was so excited but the conclusion now is something else..

  3. honest truth – I think the Indians in India portray a very ugly image of cruelty/ religion
    which is very sensitive and a very jealous character of the lives people lived -it’s mostly about seeking vengeance
    very little character of being forgiving & kind – really – gives one a very poor image of
    what people have endured – thus this saddens me – which once we have found to be very interesting & a whole lot of monotonous repeats especially murder & kidnapping scenes which makes me sick –

  4. Indians… Such a nice movie… Started so we’ll… But was rubbish, the script writer wrote nonsense… What was he thinking… And the producers and everything… This is not reality… How can u write such soap opera and ppl really loved it… This is just another nonsense like that game of love… Trash soap operas. You people need to change and stop portraying Indians as bad people and people always seeking for revenge.

  5. am surprise as well, but now we dont even know where they are going, why is it that all the movies they show these days is revenge. why is it so?

  6. This film is the most exciting film I ever loved on starlife that I will cry if I missed it. I loved the cast too especially Arsheen Namdaar, Aditi Rathore and Zain Iman. They really impress me the way they acted and this is my best Indian movie and will continue to be the best. Please don’t end the movie soon so you don’t depress the people who watches it. If it is an app I will have rate it a good five star. I loves this film so much and I will always support it 💯💯💯

  7. I totally love my identity and all the actors are just awesome but sorry guys Avni and Neil is my favourite and small Avni wow she is such a good actor all the best u guys hope to see more of you guys in other movies..

  8. You guys should make a movie first before criticizing someone else’s I know it did not turn out the way you expected but that is how they want it and it is not boring I even love watching the show

  9. I totally love my identity it makes me happy …..most especially anvi and neil I love you guys❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💋💋💋

  10. I really love the movie,the casts are super amazing, especially, my aditi rathore, small avin, zain imam, aman , alandin and my ali, infact all of you did well, I will miss u guys once the series is over, I’m a big fan of india movies but u guys need to improve more in u scripts writing, and the way u guys interprete roles, and the approach, very acting or writing a scripts consider ur audience, most time u guys interprete a role or portray a scene as if ur intended audience are not human beings with common sense, but animals. by adding some certain things or scene that is so boring , annoying, time consuming, things that are not required, which actually doesnt add up or relatable in reality, we are human created with common sense , so stop writing or portraying things that is not required, I must say the truth is super annoying , if the fault is from the writers, pls retrieve, because not everyone will be at patient to sit and watch unnecessary scene and it can make ur audience lose interest or focus in the movie, like where I come from Nigeria in Africa to be precise, we don’t like anything that consume our time no matter how interesting it appears to be, because we believe ‘time is money’ there is no need to waste it, on something u know, u will not get paid for.sometime is good to hit the hammer at the nails head, so that the intended message will passed across ur audience, So on this note, I will love u guys to look into it and make the necessary correction and improvement for the betterment of everyone, its my humble suggestion, love u all
    Keep rocking💗❤❤❤❤

  11. Am certain sure enough to congratulate this great mind.He is not only bold enough to bring out the evil that happens in society not only in India but also across the globe.He truly identifies such cruelty among people who lack humanity in the society but eventually when justice is called upon they have no other option but to pay for they inhumane and unkind behavior.
    Another important role that the script writer has developed quite well is the them of the millennial women who has a voice in both the community as to herself this has been illustrated well by the characters Avni and Neela.
    This is incredibly awesome. I dont take this as a soap opera as many viewers do..this are lessons meant to be learnt by each one of us..
    I totally love it
    My identity
    Thumbs up 👍👍👍

  12. I love love love Neil so handsome – the movie – I cannot wait to watch every evening – have learnt a great deal of the culture and has been very entertaining

  13. My Identity is a good soapie. But please writers it seems you are portraying a very bad image about India as a country. There is a lot of bribes (palm greasing) to police officers by Dayawanti Metha to the extent that her businesses are crippled. Let it not be a norm in your soapies because we might end up thinking one can not survive in that country without money. Otherwise the movie is excellent and I wish you well in your future writings.

  14. My identity started so well, in fact a day wouldn’t pass without me watching it but I stopped when it became so clumsy and over crowded. Too much drama that has made the soap opera loose the message it had intended to pass. I recall little Avni saying that one day, the Methas will be known only by her name but I wonder why the writer didn’t take it from there… As someone commented, Dayavati should have finally come to accept Avni because of her achievements in the society, she would have brought them out of the bankruptcy they were facing. Her brother Amol would finally have acknowledged her instead he wanted to kill his own sister even after knowing his grandma orphaned him!

    All the later drama is uncalled for, hating and revenge, now the focus is on Misthi… The writer could have done better.

  15. I really agree with you guys sumtyms they show scenes which you’d wonder kut does this really happen in real lyf or they think kut we aren’t able to read inbtwn the lines. I just wish that they would bring the show back and it’s ending so soon, although they sumtyms show us complete total fiction, I really enjoy the show. When I am watching it, I would sumtyms cry due to some scenes especially the ones they are showing nowadays but things always turn out lekker. So to the producers and directors👏🏼👏👏🏼👏💖💖Welldone. As for the script writer ummmmm

  16. I love the story so so much but the end of the story is boring I m so disappointed its seems as if the writer was no ideal how to end it in its twist its suppose to be
    so surprising and short,

  17. Comment:I loved it. plssss repeat again such an awesome series. I loved all characters but especially Avni(the small child)
