Story & Synopsis:
The film opens by showing a large crowd waiting for Rahul Jaykar (Aditya Roy Kapur) – a successful musician whose career is waning because of his alcohol addiction – to perform at a stage show in Goa. After nearly completing a song(Sunn Raha Hain Na), he is unexpectedly interrupted by Aryan (Salil Acharya) during his performance, who throws bottles at him. Rahul fights him, stops his performance, and drives to a local bar where he nearly meets with an accident. He meets Aarohi (Shraddha Kapoor), a bar singer who idolizes Rahul. After noticing Aarohi looking at a photograph of Lata Mangeshkar in the bar, he assumes that she wants to become a singer. Impressed by her simplicity and voice, Rahul promises to transform her into a singing sensation, and asks her to never perform again in bars.
Aarohi leaves her job and returns to Mumbai with Rahul, who convinces record producer Saigal (Mahesh Thakur) to meet her. When Aarohi calls Rahul, he is attacked and injured by some unknown people, and is unable to receive her call. His friend and manager Vivek (Shaad Randhaawa) says that news of Rahul's accident should not be leaked to the media, and instead publicizes a false story that Rahul has left the country to participate in stage shows. When Aarohi attempts to contact Rahul again, Vivek ignores the calls. After two months of fruitlessly attempting to contact Rahul, a broken Aarohi is forced to sing in bars again because of her family's financial problems.
After recovering from his injuries, Rahul vows to search for Aarohi. He learns that Aarohi is working in a bar again and that Vivek had ignored her calls without informing him. Rahul apologizes to Aarohi and sacks Vivek, and they meet with Saigal for the recording agreement. Rahul begins to train Aarohi, who signs a music contract to sing in films and becomes a successful playback singer. Her family and Rahul are happy, but when people begin to gossip that Rahul is using her as a servant, he relapses into alcohol addiction. Aarohi, who loves Rahul more than her career, comforts him.

The next day he promises to change himself and drives off. He commits suicide by jumping off a bridge thereby freeing Aarohi from himself. Aarohi is angered and devastated by his suicide and decides to stop singing. Vivek reminds her it was for her career and success that Rahul killed himself.
