Abhishek Hegde (Upendra) had first fallen in love with a young lady Anjali (Daisy Bopanna) who was a model. As a struggling model, Anjali finds herself in a fortunate position where she is mistaken to be the girlfriend of Abhishek and gets many new offers. Abhishek tries to confront her on seeing the news about his affair with her, but falls in love with her instead. Abhishek’s car hits a lorry and Anjali dies in the accident while Abhishek is injured. As Anjali’s family were not in favour of her decision of marrying Abhishek, he is informed that Anjali has married the person she has been engaged to and is not informed of her death.
