Anubhav (Sanjay Suri), Aadi (Anoop Menon) and Antara (Shruthi Seth) are products of the Bombay theatre academy. They all nurture dreams of making a mark in the motion picture Industry. But they do realize that those dreams are many a time unapproachable than they could ever imagine. Anubhav, in one of his aspirant journeys meets Meera (Gul Panag) who blatantly announces that she is a fan of his as she has seen many of his plays. An admiration that slips way to a novel love streak and ends up in a marriage facilitated with the help of theatre guru Ibrahim Vakil (Jackie Shroff) against the wishes of the very wealthy and affluent parents of Meera.
Meanwhile Aadi manages to get a producer for his film – an adaptation of Hamlet, casting Anubhav in the lead. The shooting begins but only to be stalled midway through, owing to the dramatic demise of their producer. At the same time Meera runs into some pregnancy complications. An extra ordinary turn of fortunes. Anubhav finds himself landing in the den of a royal pimp named Vanraj (Raj Zutshi). Before he realizes it he turns into a gigolo entangled by solitary widows and desperate house wives. But the stranger and more disturbing thing that happens to Anubhav is that the actor in him starts to justify his acts as being an extension of his work. “Life is a stage and each must play a part”. He is only playing another role and slowly he fails to differentiate between the actor, the role and the real him.
Anubhav, an actor’s tale and his destiny.
