Plot[edit]

The film is about Rahul (Shahrukh Khan), a middle class man, reveling in a job with extra earnings made by helping his boss deal with his multiple extra-marital affairs. His boss, Siddharth (Aditya Pancholi), is a lustful person who has deviously trapped a rich woman (Kashmira Shah) and married her to own her property.

Seema (Juhi Chawla) is an ambitious young woman and an aspiring model. Rahul and Seema meet but Siddharth is attracted to her and asks Rahul to help him trap her. A helpless Rahul does so. But deep somewhere, Rahul has a soft spot for Seema. Seema is impressed by Siddharth and is forced by him to act as Rahul's wife to fool Siddharth's wife. Seema slowly understands Rahul's purity of heart and begins liking him when they go to Switzerland for a shooting schedule.

But they face a problem. Rahul's mother (Reema Lagoo) is a heart patient and is sensitive to any shocking news. Bhushan (Gulshan Grover) uses Rahul and tells his mother that Rahul is married. To keep his mother happy, Rahul and Seema are forced to carry on the drama and they fall in love in the process.

When Siddharth learns the reality, he fires Rahul. True love triumphs as Seema decides to let a luxurious life go and spend her life with Rahul.
