The truth, though, is quite different. In the hopes that someone may read it, he distributes complimentary copies to customers at his friend’s salon. Madhusudan (Ashish Vidyarthi) and Saraswati (Rohini), Padmabhushan’s parents, have a strong faith in their son’s potential. While his mother is a stay-at-home mom, Madhusudan works as a clerk in a registrar’s office  In an unexpected turn of events, Padmabhushan finds himself overnight renowned thanks to a new book that appears to have been authored anonymously and bears his name.
