Kusum (aka Guddi) (Jaya Bachchan) is a spunky and carefree schoolgirl who lives with her father (Ak hangal), brother, and her brother's wife. Guddi has a crush on film star Dharmendra, who plays himself. Nobody knows the extent of her crush until she visits Bombay, where her sister-in-law's brother, Navin(samit bhanja), develops a crush on her. Guddi discloses to Navin that she is in love with Dharmendra. In an attempt to win Guddi's heart, Navin discusses the matter with his uncle (Uttpal Dutt), who just happens to know Dharmendra. With Dharmendra's help, they try to show Guddi the difference between the real world and the reel world.
For the next few weeks, Guddi visits film sets of Dharmendra's movies and finds that the world and the person fascinated her were not the same. She lets go of her crush and finds that she is really in love with Navin
