Plot summary[edit]

Nisha (Raakhee), accomplished in advertising industry, becomes a recluse after the tragic death of her boyfriend, Shashi Saigal (Shashi Kapoor). Years later, Karan Saxena (Rishi Kapoor) offers her employment with his advertising agency and she accepts. She realises that Karan, recently married to Timsy (Neetu Singh), reminds her of Shashi.

Trivia[edit]

The movie that Karan and Nisha watch at the cinema, when Timsy is spying on them, is "40 Carats".

Shashi Kapoor, who played Shashi Sehgal in this movie, is in real life the youngest paternal uncle of Rishi Kapoor, who played Karan Saxena (Kannu). That was used as the plot point for their similar looks.
