The town turns against Billu after businessman Daamchand (Om Puri) demands a meeting with Billu and Billu fails to arrange
it. Billu becomes a celebrity overnight after it is rumored that Sahir is his close friend. Having a successful shop as well as a loyal clientele, the school decides to educate its children free of charge.
Despite Billu’s efforts, the townspeople want to meet with Sahir(Shahrukh Khan) but he is unable to contact him. While Billu is trying to shoot just outside of the village, he makes several unsuccessful attempts to contact the star because he is embarrassed by his poverty.
The principal of the school, however, has a change of heart when Billu gets the star to attend a school function and speak to the children after threatening expulsion due to non-payment of fees.
The two friends’ friendship is reignited, and Sahir promises they will never let go of their friendship. He leaves for his next shoot. This was the end of the film.
