What happens when a delusional man who believes that he is a superstar comes face-to-face with a blind ghost?
Pratham is a superstar who has never seen failure in his life. His success goes straight to his head, and he acts as he wishes on film sets, which doesn't go down well with his directors and producers.
Pratham's streak of good luck is thanks to his zodiac sign. His stars lead him to an isolated bunglow for the shoot of a film, where he goes along with his film crew. There, he encounters a vengeful ghost who lives there and is after a man who has wronged her.
Will Pratham, who finds himself embroiled with the ghost and all the drama that ensues, be able to help the ghost seek the justice she seeks?
