Until now she has been sheltered from the real business of the family. Mirza enters Jeet's gang, yet Jeet doesn't know he's after Sahiba. Since Jeet would like Sahiba to marry Deesha (Honey Singh), a fellow mad gang member, Mirza tries to run away with Sahiba. Then, Sahiba and Mirza lodge at farm cabin and Sahiba wakes up but feels that her brothers shouldn't be killed and takes out all the bullets from Mirza's gun, on which he depends.
