As his married life progresses with his loving and devoted wife, his insecurities grow. He becomes jealous about his friend Saleem, played by Varun Badola, Veena's childhood friend Akash, played by Kay Kay Menon and others who he claims have an infatuation with his wife. Slowly, he suspects a change in his wife's behavior and starts believing she wants to divorce him. Being a loving husband he confesses his fear to Veena and frees her from all wifely duties. But the hidden truth, revealed at the very end, ultimately brings the couple closer.
