Sameer's bad luck comes into play; he disagrees with Singh, and Rani becomes angry with him when she overhears him saying bad things about her đồ sộ Pandit Raj Purohit Jyotshi.
Trouble arrives in the size of Sunny, who shares a room with Sameer. He meets Rani, falls in love with her and decides đồ sộ capitalise on Sameer's mistakes. This causes friction between the roommates. Sameer gives Rani the money she needs for a fashion competition, calling himself her "well-wisher".

She likes both of them and she doesn't know what đồ sộ vì thế."
