Kumar...Kumar...chill out, bro.

Everything is on schedule.

All the girls have been selected.

I'll see you next week with all the details.

For now...we're working on the presentation.

Till then just chill out on your yacht, bro.

Okay, see you.

You know who that was?

Where are Kumar's Calendar Girls?

We're just waiting for your instructions, sir.

Well, then this is the instruction.

Call them.

I want all of them in Mumbai.

Tell them to take the next flight out, alright?

Come on, this is Showtime!

This is homemade pickle...

...and clarified butter. Don't forget to eat them.

I wonder what they will serve you in the name of food?

And...I'm packing this photo of Lord Hanuman as well.

Just because you're a model now..

..doesn't mean you stop fasting on Tuesdays.

Okay. - Hello, Mr. Mehta. How are you?

Mr. Mehta, my daughter Mayuri... flying to Mumbai tomorrow. - Oh my God...

Yes, yes, yes...

She's flying out to be a Calendar Girl.

Yes...yes... - Economy.

Mr. Mehta, you're posted at the airport.

And my daughter's ticket's been confirmed in the Economy class.

And...I was wondering if it could be upgraded to Business Class.. will be really nice... I mean...if you can do it...

That's was all, Mr. Mehta.


Thank you. - Thank you...thank you very much, sir.

Our daughter's been promoted to Business Class. - Very good.

She's got a strong luck.

After all she's my daughter...

Always takes a long jump.

She will make it really big. - Papa...

Just wait and watch...

Soon Mayuri will be Rohtak Queen.


Let's take a selfie. - Yes, please.


You're going to trot in front of the entire world.. such skimpy clothes.


This is the result of pampering her...

Calling her 'beautiful' all the time.

Now she's going to put her beauty on display..

..and the world's going to ogle.

How do you know, brother?

Did you ogle at these beautiful girls too?


Father, go inside.

I will talk to her. - I don't want to talk about anything.

Only five have been selected.

This is not some ordinary job.

I've decided...I want to go. - Fine. Go!

But don't ever come back.

I won't, father.

But one day...I will invite all of you to Mumbai.

You will feel proud of your Paroma.

Just wait and watch.

Paroma! Paroma! - Mom!

Congrats, Sharda.

By becoming the youngest Vice-President..

..of such a big company, you even outdid your mom and dad.

Thank you so much, Jayshri Aunty.

I hope I did the family proud. - Yes.

I don't see Nandita around.

Nandita... There she is.

Hello, Nandi dear. - Hello, aunty.

Being born in a family of over-achievers..

..has its own side-effects, right dear?


And your big sister broke all records.

Now everyone wants to know about your plans for the future.

I've been selected as well, aunty. - WOW!

IBM or Infosys?


Calendar? - Yeah!

Which bank? Dhanlaxmi?

Those calendars are only good for showing dates.

I am talking about the hottest Calendar in India.

Are you serious? - I know it sounds a bit strange..

..but trust me...

When this Calendar comes out, I'll be everywhere.

And anyway, every company has CEOs and VPs.

But you see Priyanka and Deepika on the hoardings promoting them.

Right, aunty?

Naazneen, you've made a lot of progress from Lahore to London.

So what is this obsession about...

..going to Mumbai and becoming a Calendar girl.

Inzamam, I haven't achieved anything big in life yet.

I still have many more heights of success to scale.

And Calendar girl can be means.. get into Bollywood. - No!

I don't want you to get into Bollywood.

You can do whatever you want right here in London.

Not possible, Inzamam.

This is a huge platform..

..and I cannot miss this opportunity.

This means you'll leave me.

Did you forget the day...I brought you here from those lanes of Pakistan?

Why don't you come along too?

Don't be crazy. I don't want to go to India.

I can't stay here either.

Inzamam, I've decided that I am going to India.



What kind of a joke is this?

I guess you've made up your mind.. give bread-n-breakfast service to the men in India.

I had my doubts earlier. But now it's confirmed.

You know what...

You're going to become a bloody cheapo.


Sharon, you've been selected for Calendar girls..

..but, are you sure you want to do this?

Janvi, you sound like I'm going to Iraq.

I've heard a lot about that industry.

There are no rules.

Booze, drugs, sex...orgies!

I really hope so.

By the way, that's what the world thinks about our Goa. girls walk around in bikinis.

And booze and babes are easily available here.. eggs and toast. Is it true?

No. - Exactly!

You know, only one thing matters for me.

And that's a good experience.

When I show these Calendar photos to my grandchildren..

..even they will think how hot their grandma was.

Sharon, you're crazy. - Not crazy, I am completely sorted.

Keep walking...and I'm gonna run.

You know I really don't understand what you people keep doing.

Behave like absolute dolts.

Excuse me, sir. - Yes!

Timmy's here.

Kumar. - Timmy, my man.

How are you doing? - How are you?

Very well.

All okay? - Absolutely.

Come, come, come. Sit. - Thanks.

Guys, setup. - Yeah.

So...what's up?

Timmy...this has been our joint venture for the last 15 years.

15 years!

You know...I have many businesses.

But no other business gives me as much kick as this one..

..because this is not a business.

This is my passion, my friend.

Look at the calendar.

It's a Hit!

Earlier only the high-society would wait for it.

Today all of India waits for it, you know why? - Why?

Because this Calendar has become a symbol for all of India.

It's the symbol of success, of aspirations..

Achievement... Power!

This year I've even doubled the copies.

Oh really. Wow!

Tell me what's in-store. - Right away.

Slides please.

So here are your Calendar girls.

First one is Paroma Ghosh.

Bong Bomb! - Stunning.

Naazneen Malik. Lahore, Pakistan.

Cute, huh!

And this is Nandita Menon, from Bangalore.

This one is Sharon Pinto.

Sassy lass from Goa.

And last but not the least.

Mayuri Chauhan. - Oh my, God.

Small town girl, Rohtak.

But big value.

Thank you.

So? - Superb. Superb!

Where do you get these girls from?

I'm not going to tell you my secret?

So tell me...what's the destination?

Where do you intend to shoot this year?

You know I'm thinking...

White Sands...Blue Seas...


Superb. I am very-very-very happy.

This is brilliant. - Thank you.

"Ah...Aah...Ohh... We're on a roll."

"Ah...Aah...Ohh... We're on a roll."

"Ah...Aah...Ohh... We're on a roll."

"Ah...Aah...Ohh... We're on a roll."

"This is the moment to fulfill our dreams."

"Fate has bestowed this opportunity."

"This is the moment to fulfill our dreams."

"Fate has bestowed this opportunity."

"We won't miss this chance."

"We're gonna pluck the stars."

"And go beyond the skies."
