The show is about an aspiring 17-year-old actor Rohan Shah whose role model is Karan Kundra. He goes to the Balaji office for an audition of Gumrah and gets selected. In the meantime he gets to go in Kundra's party (organised by Soumya Seth to reunite Kundra and Kittoo) with a friend and not knowing about Kundar's and Kittoo's (Kritika Kamra) breakup plays a cd having their past memories to wish them anniversary which angers Kundra. In the same party Sara Khan turns out in a bikini to grab media attention and plays a large part in helping Rohan play that cd. The next day Sara is shocked to see the newspapers filled with the breakup news rather than her bikini pics. The story then covers the life and struggles of various celebrities from Rohan's point of view.
