They soon become friends and a chemistry sparks between the two. Suraj's old coach Om (Mamik Singh) calls him back to the club but Suraj tells him that he has stopped fighting. He reveals that three years ago, during a boxing match his opponent's wife begged him to lose as she needed the prize money for her daughter's treatment. In order to help, Suraj loses the fight intentionally but later discovers that it was all a plot set by the opponent boxer. After trashing him in a night club, Suraj loses his boxing license and also stops trusting or caring for anyone.
