Abhay, a scion of a cultured well to do Agnihotri family does cheating and is in contrast with all the other principles of his family and his acts are totally against the rules of his family. There is also the rich family of Bob Satam living in Mauritius and he is a big industrialist who is living with his family members and he has bought a grand villa in Mauritius a long time back. His mother is of the opinion that her granddaughter Mrudula should know Marathi culture and the lifestyle of a Maharashtrian family and so she is sent to Pune for studies where she meets Abhay and falls in love with him but Abhay is cheating her too and then there occur such events that Mrudula is forced to head back to Mauritius. Does Abhay fall in his own trap due to his habit of cheating? To find this, one has to see the film.
At the grand bash of the trailer launch, the director Ajay Phansekar revealed that almost 80% of the film was shot in Mauritius. And I got the full co-operation of the producers, cast and the crew in the making of the film. He added that we had to surmount severe natural hurdles during the shoot of the film and we did it successfully and the genre of this film is different from the other films that I have made and I hope the audiences like my film.
The hero of the film Vaibbhav Tatwawdi said, “I have played the role of Abhay Agnihotri in the film and this boy knows only one thing and that is to speak lie. My character has shades that have never been seen before in any of my characters.”
