The gist of the song is, “He is 100% trouble. Don’t believe him. He is a big liar.”

Video: Cinematography is by Neha Parti Matiyani. Dance choreography is by Ahmad Khan-Remo-Adil Sheikh.

The video opens with Varun Dhawan arguing with an invigilator of his college exams and then leaving. The Sikh invigilator shakes his head. Varun Dhawan turns back and winks at the older man. In the next shot, Alia Bhatt is seen stealing diesel from a truck with a boy and selling it, on the sly. She pays the boy some amount of money and keeps the rest with herself.

The song has already begun in a male voice. Next shots are from Varun Dhawan’s college, mostly routine activities of the last bencher. He bribes a professor with some whiskey and gets some yet-to-be-given exam papers from the examiner’s home. Alia Bhatt buys some tea for the ladies of her family.

Varun Dhawan supplies the exam questions to a girl in return for a kiss on his cheek. She does not entertain more kisses after she gets the papers. Varun Dhawan and his friends are watching Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995) and gets emotional, during the climax. His friends celebrate his birthday with a cake.

The song rises to a crescendo and ends. The video also ends with the night turning to day.
