One day his boss tells him to improve himself and hands him a multi-million rupee client, Veena Sanghvi (Kamal Sidhu) and asks him to maintain and strengthen the relationship with this client. Shekhar meets with Veena, seduces her and marries her, while having an affair with her personal secretary, Anu Chauhan (Deepa Sahi).
