Movie: This song appeared in 2017 Dharma Productions’ romedy Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya (Badrinath’s Bride) produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shashank Khaitan. The movie starred Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sukhmani Lamba, etc.
Badrinath Bansal Aka Badri (Varun Dhawan), the younger scion of a Jhansi-based affluent family, remembers how his brother Alok (Yash Sinha) was compelled to give up his love for a girl and marry the girl Urmila (Swetha Basu Prasad) their father selected. Urmila is not allowed to work despite the presence of intelligence, talent and professional training with her. Her education is more than her husband. Alok is depressed and spends a lot of time drinking alcohol. Badri often worries that he might have the same fate waiting for him. Thus, when he sees Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia Bhatt) during a friend’s wedding, he falls in love with her and decides to go to any extreme to marry her with his father’s permission.
Badri keeps chasing Vaidehi, a Kota-resident. When she rejects him, he puts pressure on her through her father, who wants to get both her and her elder sister married as soon as possible. Finally, Vaidehi agrees because Badri finds a ‘good’ groom for her sister Kritika (Sukhmani Lamba), all with a lot of comic diversions. He also gets his father convinced through other sources, without the older man’s knowledge.
Vaidehi runs away on the day of marriage. It is a shameful situation for all. After one month she calls home and tells her mother that she is in Mumbai training to become an air hostess. She had also bagged a job. Her father does not talk to her, so she does not tell them about her new job. Her father contacts Badri’s father and informs him of it. He sends Badri to bring her back and teach her a lesson for running away.
Badri goes to Mumbai with his friend Somdev Mishra (Sahil Vaid) and is told that she had left for Singapore for her further on-job training. He catches up with her and kidnaps her from her apartment block. He confronts her and she tells him that she did not leave because of him. He is caught by the police as he seems to be strangling her and Vaidehi talks her way out of the awkward situation for his benefit. He is warned and let off by the police. Still, he begins to stalk her. He gets drunk and creates a nuisance in front of Vaidehi’s apartment block. Vaidehi insists that she was ready to come back home with him provided he would tell his father that she would be working after marriage. He is incapable of doing that. He is arrested by the police and Somdev’s and his passports are retained by them. They are let out under the guarantee of Gurmeet (Gaurav Pandey), Vaidehi’s friend Kiran’s (Aakanksha Singh) boyfriend. Also, they have to stay with Vaidehi in her apartment until their passports are returned to them.
All the friends enjoy the time together. Badri’s father finds out that his son has gone to Singapore and insists that he return home immediately. He also tells his son that he has begun looking for another bride for him in India. Simultaneously, Badri and Somdev’s passports are returned to them by the police. Vaidehi suggests that all of them have some nice party-time together that evening. They go to a club where Gurmeet is a DJ and he plays a remix of an old song. This is the song that is played at this time and all the friends perform on it.
