Aarthi (Ileana D'Cruz) a maid’s daughter studies in the same class, and she has a secret admiration towards Raghu. Seeing the way in which Priyanka treats him, Aarthi gives moral support and motivates Raghu to come above Priyanka, who is an all-rounder and best student in the university. This infuriates Priyanka who slowly wants Raghu at any cost. Aarthi is blackmailed by a boy who takes her vulgar photos in a toilet and he saves her from it. Priyanka decides to separate them and creates photos with him.
