Kirti does an act. Everyone claps for her as she performs really well. Her boyfriend Sunny Kukreja is waiting for her. He is from a filmy background and his film is going to launch soon. She too wants to make it big. It is my only option. He is sure it will happen one day. It is her mother’s dream to see her on the golden screen one day.

Satish Kukreja is angry as Neha refuses to do film with a new comer, his son. I can make anyone a star. Find a pretty, beautiful girl. We will launch a new face. The auditions for the new girls start. Sunny comes to the studio with Kirti one day. Satish looks at her from top to toe. He has already shortlisted a girl but tells Sunny to send Kirti to his new bungalow. Kirti asks Sunny to accompany her. Sunny reasons her that she should go. It is a very rare chance.

Kirti comes to meet Satish at his new bungalow. He tells her to read the lines of the heroine from the script which is kept in the front. She is uncomfortable and fumbles. He tells her to read it properly if she wants to become a star. I will teach you. He offers her a seat. She tries to excuse herself. She calls Sunny. He tells her to go ahead for this small compromise. Your mother’s dream will come true. I promise you nothing will be repeated again. We will keep it amongst ourselves. This way we will be able to star in the same movie. She goes out again. Satish gets cosy with her.

Satish introduces Kirti to his team. Groom her well. She will be our heroine. Sunny takes Kirti aside. You are ignoring me. She is not happy about the whole situation but he is sure she wont regret it once she becomes a star. This will never come between us.

Kirti and Sunny pose for photos. Makarand tells Kirti that Satish has called her immediately. Satish and Mr. Gupta (investor) see the audition. Mr. Gupta is not happy with Kirti. Satish tries to convince him but in vain. He later tells Makarand to tell Mr. Gupta that there is a special party at my place tonight. Kirti reaches Satish’s bungalow but there is no one around except for Satish, Sunny. Satish says Gupta wants to meet you alone after seeing your audition. Just make him happy. He will make you a big heroine. Sunny yet again convinces Kirti to go ahead. This happens in our industry very often. Its pretty normal too. Just once for me. She goes upstairs reluctantly. Sunny and his Dad smile at each other. Gupta tells Kirti to close the door as soon as she is inside.

Next day, Kirti reaches studio. The guard tries to stop her but she walks inside. She notices a new girl in her place. Satish introduces her as the new heroine of his film. You are a third class struggling actress. She confronts Sunny but he doesn’t pay much heed. Sunny instead blames her. You chose to do it the wrong (compromising) way. You could have said no. Kirti refuses to give up so easily. I will expose you all in front of the media. Satish is unaffected.

Sunny, Satish and Gupta discuss the issue. Satish tells Sunny to explain to his good friend. We have only shot 2 scenes with Neha. We should bring Kirti back.

Sunny calls Kirti at night. I want to meet you. He insists upon meeting her in an hour in the studio. You are very important for me. I know I have made a mistake but please give me one chance.

Kirti reaches Studio. Sunny is already there. I have been waiting for you. I will help you in fulfilling your dream. I was wrong. I realised my mistake. I love you Kirti. I wont let you go anywhere. I had a word with Papa. I wont do this movie if you are not in it. She is pleasantly surprised. They share a hug. He takes her upstairs to show her something. This world is so different. These lights, this studio brings us to another world altogether. Sunny changes into something else when the camera is switched on. She nods. You get to experience something new every day. I too came here to fulfil my dreams. He switches on a light. They both look down. He makes her imagine them doing a scene together. this light will change our lives. We are going to be stars. A new life will start afterwards. Congratulations to you on your new life. He pushes her
