Shikhar (English: Pinnacle, Devnagari: शिखर) is an Bollywood drama film directed by John Matthew Matthan. The film stars Shahid Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, and Bipasha Basu in lead roles. The storyline is based on lands, villages, and how some businessmen can cross any line of greed to get what he desires, and go to any length. The film released on 30 December 2005.
The story is about Gaurav Gupta (Ajay Devgan), a successful rich businessman, who started with nothing and now believes that only money can fuel his ambitions. When he interests himself on building a tower at an abandoned social village place, he makes his mind up and agrees to build the tower at any cost. However, the owner of the village place, Shrikant Vardhan (Javed Sheikh) does not accept the tower to be built. Therefore, Gaurav tricks Shrikant's son Jaidev (Shahid Kapoor) who is infected by the get-rich-quick virus.
Jaidev, who while respecting his father's philosophy, falls hook, line and sinker for Gaurav's gilt-edged dreams. Gaurav uses his girlfriend Natasha (Bipasha Basu) to charm Jaidev by pretending to be in love with him so Jaidev could support them instead of his own father. However, Shrikant still hopes that Jaidev will return to his roots. Gaurav and Natasha together trick Jaidev all the way long by pretending to be an construction/Ad agency partnered with actor John Abraham.
