Movie: This song appeared in 2014 Dharma Productions’ hit romedy, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (The Bride of Humpty Sharma) produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shashank Khaitan. The movie starred Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sahil Vaid, Gaurav Pandey, Ashutosh Rana, Mahnaz Damania, etc.
The lead characters – Rakesh aka Humpty Sharma (Varun Dhawan) and Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia Bhatt) meet for the first time at Kavya’s maternal uncle’s place. Kavya, an Ambala resident, is at his place to earn enough money for buying a designer bridal dress for her wedding. Kavya’s uncle is Humpty’s exam paper corrector. Humpty bribes them and Kavya promises that he will get pass marks. Humpty falls in love with her and begins chasing her with his friends Poplu (Sahil Vaid) and Shonty (Gaurav Pandey). But, she just befriends them.
Soon, Humpty gets to know that Kavya’s friend Gurpreet (Guncha Narula) was being blackmailed by her ex-boyfriend Bhanu (Jimmy Varyani), after secretly filming the time they were intimate. Humpty victimizes Bhanu and recovers the money, which he had blackmailed Gurpreet into giving him. The total amount that he recovers from Bhanu is much more than the amount they needed to return to Gurpreet. Humpty decides to give the extra money to Kavya, which she rejects since she did not like the way they had earned the money.
Due to the adventures that they had, Kavya also falls in love with Humpty and they celebrate Gurpreet’s marriage with a good boy. Kavya and Humpty go to bed together the night before she is to leave for Ambala. Humpty wants to marry her. But, she tells him that she would not go against her father. Her father wants her to marry an NRI. Humpty’s father has also contributed toward the fund for buying Kavya’s dress. She accepts the money, without wanting to, and leaves Delhi. But, she buys Humpty’s father’s dream car as a gift for them with the money they had arranged. Humpty decides to find Kavya and marry her. He sets out for Ambala.
When Kavya comes back home, her sister Swati (Mahnaz Damania) and other ladies in her family realize that she has changed. Kavya’s father (Ashutosh Rana) believes in arranged marriages since his elder divorcee daughter Swati’s love marriage turned out to be a disaster. Kavya’s father immediately rejects Humpty’s proposal and gets him beaten up. He and his friends are thrown into a truck going back to Delhi. Humpty and his friends return to Ambala with more determination and give Kavya’s sister a call. She informs Kavya and picks her up from home. While traveling in her sister’s jeep, Kavya remembers the moments she had spent with Humpty, during her stay in Delhi. This song is heard in the background at that time.
