They both go to Mumbai for the treatment, where they come across a rich businessman, Shiva Reddy (played by Rajiv Kanakala), who is also in need of a heart transplant. He had already arranged for one, but it was rejected by the doctors as it was not a perfect match. Arya volunteers to donate his heart to Shiva Reddy, as he was not interested in living anymore.
