After Ruby's dream is achieved, Krishna (Prabhu Deva) and Devi (Tamannah) are peacefully living with their 2-year-old child. Krishna, who is scared that Ruby might possess Devi again, takes her to Mauritius after getting a transfer, leaving their daughter with Devi's parents. After arriving, Krishna feels super happy that he doesn't need to deal with ghosts. One day, Devi sees Krishna with his office mate. Devi asks him about it but he responds that he doesn't know anything. She then starts suspecting Krishna. Krishna is surprised as she starts confronting him, which he promises on his daughter that it's nothing. She gets angry and doesn't give lunch to him. When Lawyer Lalitha (Kovai Sarala), Devi's friend, advises her to make his favorite lunch. She is convinced and goes to the office, only to find out that he is not there. Upset with Lalitha's advice, they go back home only to find out that he is trying to woo a second girl. Thinking she is not enough for Krishna, she tries to impress him, but he thinks that she is Ruby. He then promises to Devi saying that the only woman he knows is Devi. The next day they go out, and Devi starts seeing more things. She finally concludes that Krishna is around to girls. She follows both of the girls and finds out that they both loved a man but both of them died in an accident. Thinking Krishna is possessed by 2 ghosts, she tests him and finds out that he is actually possessed by 2 ghosts. Devi tries to leave to India the next morning but her plan backfires. She is then held in the air with Lalitha at the house and is made to sign the same contract that ruby signed for Krishna in the previous film. Both of them try helping the ghosts woo their girlfriends. They lie to the girls that 'Krish' was in love with a girl who looked exactly like them before they tragically died in an accident. The girls sympathize Krishna and agree to say "I love you" to him so that he recovers from the misery. Due to some mishaps, both the girls arrive at the same time and are shocked to see each other come for the same purpose. They also find out that Krishna is married to Devi and storm out, refusing to help them. Devi couldn't tolerate this anymore as she wants her Krishna back again.
Some goons enter Devi's house and kidnap her and Krishna. Later, it is revealed that Sarah (Nandita Swetha)'s band mate Rudra (Ajmal Ameer) is behind those kidnappers. Before leaving he says to the kidnappers to check his full background details and don't do any stupidity like while killing Alex, Sarah's lover. When Krishna hears that he is possessed by both Ranga Reddy, Isha (Dimple Hayathi)'s lover and Alex, Sarah's lover, he goes after Rudra to take revenge. Devi tries to stop him but in vain. There she meets Raj Khanna (Sonu Sood)-in the previous movie Ruby's lover and an actor who is the chief guest of the concert in which Rudra's band is going to perform. Meanwhile Lalitha tries to request Isha to comeback and save Devi's life by saying 'I love you' to Krish. She becomes angry and says that she loves Ranga Reddy only. Hearing this Ranga Reddy's soul gets salvation. Now Alex is on the way to revenge and seeing Devi in a bad situation Raj Khanna is after Krishna. Meanwhile Rudra met up with Sarah and confesses his love for her. But she rejects and says that she only loved Alex. Hearing this Alex's soul also gets salvation. Now Krishna is in his normal state and got confused of what he was doing in the concert. Rudra tries to force himself on Sarah but she ran away from there and meets Krishna and he in his normal state doesn't know her. Then Raj Khanna comes and tries to kill him and Rudra misunderstands Raj Khanna as Krishna's boss who made him to do all this. Krishna runs away from both .Raj Khanna accidentally shoots Rudra while aiming for Krishna and the people who gathered their thought it was part of film shooting as he is an actor.
