Nanhe (Dwij Yadav) is the self-proclaimed camel jockey in the whole of Jaisalmer. Only ten years old, he can speak a myrad of languages and has won the hearts of all the tourists who visit Jaisalmer. But in Nanhe's heart is his favorite actor Bobby Deol, who had worked with him in a film years ago when Nanhe was just a baby. In one of that film's scenes Bobby picks up the baby Nanhe and asks him 'Kaise ho mere dost?'(How are you my friend?). This memory alone leads Nanhe to believe that the actor is his long-lost best friend. No one believes that Bobby is Nanhe's friend. When it is announced that Bobby is finally coming to Jaisalmer on a 30-day movie shoot, Nanhe's wish is fulfilled, to finally meet his long-lost friend. Over the next few days Bobby and Nanhe spend lots of fun time together. Bobby teaches Nanhe how to use his most powerful utility, his brain and how to keep on learning new things in life. It is not long before Nanhe finds out that Bobby never came to Jaisalmer, he cancelled his shooting. Nanhe had been hallucinating Bobby the whole time. His subconscious had been healing him into learning good things and leaving bad habits such as taking tobacco. He realizes that each time he saw Bobby, he was in a get-up that came right out from all the posters in Nanhe's room.
Years later an adult Nanhe (Vatsal Sheth) changes his name to Vikram Singh and writes a book about his own life, and about how he thought he met Bobby and other events that happened in his earlier life, but he is shocked when he finds out that on his book's premiere, Bobby Deol actually shows up to congratulate him. Reminiscing all the past events they became good friends after all.

The film, though well received, failed at the boxoffice. It has done better in Home Video & T.V. reruns. The film was awarded Certificate of excellence at the California Children Film Festival. Also, another fact to be considered is that the basic storyline of "Billu Barber" or "Billu", released in 2009, is along the same story where Shahrukh Khan's childhood friend is a measly barber and no one believes his tall tale that Billu used to give Shahrukh Khan half his lunch because Shahrukh Khan was so poor.
