A Hindi film unit goes to Pahalgan to shoot an untitled movie. The stars are Naseeruddin shah, Amol Palekar, Sushma Seth, Shabana Azmi and Sadashiv Amrapurkar (actors playing themselves) These stars do not get along with each other in reality, which is completely contrary to the characters they portray. Their hatred for each other goes to such an extent that blows and fistcuffs are exchanged. Then one of them gets killed followed by the death of Dayal (Ajit Vachhani), the film producer and Sushma Seth. The police suspects Kuku (Pankaj kapoor) a mentally ill man, who was present at the crime location. He also possesses a gun. But Rajiv Bakshi (Naseeruddin) does not believe that Kuku is behind all these murders. He plots a plan to put Shabana as a bait to lure the killer out to open but will Shabana be ready to put her life in danger, to expose the real killer?
