The real twist in the tale comes when Kabir’s look-alike Rasiya Bihari (Ali Fazal), who works for a land mafia Carlos Rehbar Pasha (Razzak Khan), also gives his heart away to Rachna. And Rachna and her family mistake him for Kabir. Kabir, on the other hand, is confused as people are mistaking him for Rasiya.
