Karan loves Sweety (Ileana) but she gets engaged to Charan and Charan loves Binkle(Athiya), who Karan is supposed to marry.

This is the first time uncle Anil Kapoor has worked with nephew Arjun Kapoor in a film. Interestingly, they portray the same relationship in the film.
Asked if it’s fun to work with a family member on screen, Arjun said in an interview, “It’s a blast (to work with a family member). Before the film began I was also keen to see how this pans out because I have not experienced this before. But it turned out to be a blast because you get to hang out with your family. Learn, work and watch a man who’s iconic and a legend do his work.”
