Amarkant "Amar" Verma (Shahrukh Khan) is a radio jockey (or presenter, in the earlier radio days there was no jockey term) & journalist in All India Radio, Delhi. He is very romantic in nature and his programmes reflect that. He is been sent to North-East region to know about people views about the upcoming 50th year of Independence. He goes on to interview a terrorist group fearlessly. He also meets Meghna (Manisha Koirala) and fells for her. He keeps chasing her and she keeps avoiding him. She ends up telling him that she is married, and then when he wents to apologise to her, she brings two men who beats him. This excites him again to follow her and he reaches Ladakh in her quest.
