Shanu Singh lives a middle-class lifestyle with his dad, Rahul, and mom, Shivani. Rahul is a magician and performs Houdini-like tricks.

Shanu and Pinky win Parle-G and Camlin Pencils contest and are enrolled in Aabra Ka Daabra — the school of magic, that was founded by Sage Adityanand, which is now run by a magician Rang Birangi, who has enormous magical powers.

Aabra Ka Daabra was met with extremely negative reviews, as it was considered to be a poor childish ripoff of Harry Potter and filled with too many unnecessary songs. However, it was praised for Tiara (now Nupur Mehta)'s negative performance, her costumes and Anupam Kher's comic role.


In the end of movie it was seen that there will be a sequel titled Aabra ka Daabra- Terror of RB, in which all the cast will reprise their roles. In 2020, Hansika Motwani said that now she has her acting career, she refused to join the film. Its plans are now shelved.
