Mumbai-based Tanvi Sharma, married to financier, Nikhil, for 3 years, is thrilled when she is not only promoted as Assistant Vice-President with her employer, ICBI Bank, but also tests positive for motherhood. Her joy surrounding her pregnancy is short-lived when she realizes that motherhood will not only negatively impact her marriage but her promotion as well. After her abortion, she and Nikhil decide to have a child through a surrogate, who will live with them during the pregnancy period. A broker, Shukla, arranges a surrogate, Gauri, an impoverished village-based mother of two children, and the wife of an unemployed idol-artist, Mohan. While dealing with pressures of the stigma attached of nursing a child sired through another woman from family and friends, she must also deal with the fact that a naive Gauri may decide to keep the child.
