The story revolves around two characters, Siddharth and Aditya, who are poles apart from each other. Siddharth is a straightforward guy who lives life on his own terms and takes stand for the right things. On the other hand, Aditya is a ruthless businessman who doesn't care about anyone's feelings and is driven by his ambition to become a billionaire.

He is a man of few words and prefers action over words.
The focus then shifts to Aditya, who is a successful businessman with a murky past. He is currently in a relationship with Yamini (Malvika Sharma), who is the daughter of his business partner. However, his true love is Meghana (Amrita Aiyer), who he had met years ago and fell in love with. But due to financial issues, they couldn't be together. Now, Aditya comes up with a plan to reunite with Meghana by eliminating Yamini.
