The story follows Raj Kumar (played by Chiranjeevi) who is a wealthy audio company executive owning a modern dance school. His passion has been dance for all of his life. Then he meets the seductive Shanti (played by Simran), whom he marries. It would seem that he would do anything for his wife and their daughter, Akshaya (played by Aishwarya). However, his family takes advantage of his kindness and winds up destroying his wealth. Though happy in a not quite lavish lifestyle, Raj and family become shattered when their daughter becomes ill due to a heart condition.

Shanti is pregnant and leaves him as a result, blaming him for their daughter’s death. Raj is rich once again, six years later. His second child, Aishwarya, resembles his dead daughter, Akshaya. In her honor, he establishes a foundation to care for unhealthy and poor children and families. He manages to build a relationship with Shanti's daughter, Aish, though Shanti is unaware.
