An extra (Ranvir Shourie) in Bollywood (Indian Film Industry) gets caught up with the wrong people because his face is identical to the underworld don, 'Raje' bhai(a slang for underworld don in Mumbai). An opposing gang seeing the opportunity plans to murder the don and replace him with the actor, who will sit at the helm of the don's empire and act as their puppet to help them take over the empire. The plan falls apart when the actor suffers a head injury during an accident and experiences dementia. Amidst the turmoil he start believing the don's family and enemies to be his own and start eliminating the rival gang. Will the opposing gang reveal his secret and ruin their own plan or will he take over the business or keep believing the illusion that he was accidentally introduced to? Now the big question if our "Memory" stored in the "Hippocampus" part of the brain is our "Identity", WHO are We really?
