It was during the same meeting that Bhushan Kumar and Divya Khosla first met. Bhushan Kumar fell in love with Divya Khosla at first sight. During this film, there were talks between Bhushan and Divya.
Then Divya and Bhushan started talking on the messages. But in Divya’s mind, Bhushan Kumar, who is such a big name in the industry, may be from such a big family. So it will definitely not be good.
