The film also portrays the 60's during which Shahid portrays the character of a musician in Mumbai which was Bombay then. "The period was interesting and exciting. People were very cool right from the fashion point of view or from the music point of view. Govind is a normal guy who is a struggling musician and comes to Bombay. He meets Rukhsar (Priyanka) who is a big star by then. They meet for the first time and fall in love. Govind lives in a chawl and is in love with this big star. This concept was interesting."
