Nanhe (Dwij Yadav) is the self-proclaimed best camel jockey in all of Jaisalmer. Only ten years old, he can speak a myrad of languages and has won the hearts of all the tourists who visit Jaisalmer. But who has won Nanhe's heart? His best friend, the actor Bobby Deol. No one believes that Bobby Deol is Nanhe's friend. When Nanhe's "sab se acha dost" (best friend) finally comes to Jaisalmer on a 30 day movie shoot, Nanhe's wish is fulfilled, to finally meet his long-lost friend and he learns a lesson on how to use his most powerful utility, his brain. Bobby teaches him how to fight with life, and do creative challenges but then he finds out at the end, it was all an illusion. Bobby never came to Jaisalmer, he cancelled his shooting, and only Nanhe could see him. As an adult Nanhe (Vatsal Sheth) changes his name to Vikram Singh and writes a book about his own life, how he thought he met Bobby Deol and the rest of stuff that happened in his earlier life, but is in big shock and excitement when he finds out that on his Book Premiere, Bobby Deol actually showed up, remembering they became good friends after all.

The film, though well received, failed at the boxoffice. It has done better in Home Video & T.V. reruns. The film was awarded Certificate of excellence at the California Children Film Festival. Also, another fact to be considered is that the basic storyline of "Billu Barber" or "Billu", released in 2009, is along the same story where Shahrukh Khan's childhood friend is a measly barber and no one believes his tall tale that Billu used to give Shahrukh Khan half his lunch because Shahrukh Khan was so poor.
