On being wheedled by his mother and aunt , Nihaal heads to Canada to stay with Taari's uncle (B.N. Sharma) in order to find out the whereabouts of Jasneet, where he meets another girl, Simrat (Japji Khaira) who tells him that Jasneet belongs to one of the wealthiest family of Vancouver and it would be next to impossible for him to reach her.


Favoured by the luck, Nihaal ends up becoming body guard of Jasneet after saving her life twice from the goons who want to kill her.
