As her maiden project, Asmi decides to make a reality show on the marriage of a Joshi family in Mumbai. The Joshis are initially perplexed by Asmi’s proposal to cover the marriage of their daughter for a TV network. Though the bride's father is willing to go along with the idea, there are some people in the family who are thoroughly opposed to Asmi’s proposal. And there is Manoj Joshi (Irfaan Khan), the bride-to-be’s youngest uncle. He is a shy, gullible, good-for-nothing man who develops a soft corner for Asmi. Getting an inkling of Manoj’s feelings, Asmi decides to use him for the project. With lovesick Manoj’s help, she gets hidden cameras installed in the house.
