It just two of them in the house so their relationship was really close. Chander's father helped him to find out who was the "dream girl" by tricking her to come to a venue.

When Pooja learned the truth she wanted to make it up to Chander. She asked his childhood friend Jai to bring her to Chander. Jai sold her to a brothel instead. Pooja was missing and the police asked Chander where he's hiding Pooja. Chander didn't know anything and tried to find Pooja until he learned that Jai sold her to a brothel.
