Despite Dev tries to marry her, Roop and Zafar are in love with each other. Besides all of these secrets in their life, Zafar and Dev Chaudhry joined their hands with the prostitutes against the British government. Balraj Chaudhry (Sanjay Dutt) who also fell in love with Bahaar Begum (Madhuri Dixit), was bounded in his position as a king and with social issues to express his love for Begum publically because of their names.
