Abhimanyu Roy (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Bindu Shankaranarayanan (Parineeti Chopra) are best friends since their childhood. Abhimanyu has always been in love with Bindu much to the chagrin of his mother. He never conveys his real feelings to Bindu and is happy with just friendship. He helps her in her ambition to become a singer and they visit a club for an audition. Soon, Bindu’s mother (June Malia) expires in an accident. Bindu is heartbroken and blames her father for the tragedy since he was driving the car under the influence of alcohol. Her resentment toward her father grows and forces her to leave college and shift to her maternal aunt’s place in Melbourne, Australia.
At the same time, Abhimanyu completes his M.Sc. and joins MBA in Bangalore. When he goes to Goa for a vacation, he meets Bindu. She informs him that she is engaged. Abhimanyu is heartbroken and goes to Mumbai to work in a bank. Bindu calls him to a Mumbai restaurant to tell him that she cannot marry her fiancé since he ran away. Abhimanyu begins their friendship with newfound enthusiasm and helps her going out of his way. He sings this song during this time.
