Vikram Jaisingh (Farhan Akhtar) is an aspiring actor who moves to Mumbai with the hope of making it big. He is helped by his small-time actor friend Abhimanyu (Arjun Mathur) in landing auditions for various roles, but has only faced rejection. Vikram befriends Sona Mishra (Konkona Sen Sharma), a young actress who has been in the entertainment business for quite some time, but has not yet acted in any big productions. When Sona is refused a big role of a heroine in an upcoming film by her beau, she hands Vikram’s photos to him for consideration. Impressed by Vikram’s heroic looks is Romy (Rishi Kapoor), a millionaire who immediately casts him in his new film. But when Neena (Dimple Kapadia), a former actress and mother of Nikki (Isha Sharvani), the actress cast in Romy’s film meets Vikram, she has double thoughts about his performance. But she soon falls for Vikram's charming ways. The film’s shooting begins anyway and the crew soon start to realize that Vikram is a tantrum-thrower. He starts an illicit relationship with Nikki, taking Sona for granted. When Neena finds out about her daughter’s affair with Vikram, she uses her influence to remove Vikram out of the picture forever, with the help of Ranjit (Sanjay Kapoor), the director of the film.
