"Let me go home, beloved.

Let me go home."

"Let me go home, beloved.

Let me go home."

Dreams are sold differently

in different cities.

Because the city and it's monotonous

life needs the vision and color...

...of a beautiful dream to make itself big.

A city like this, where a dream of...

...becoming an international super model...

I, Meghna Mathur dreamt and lived.

The only difference was that

my dream was bigger than the city.

Since you were tired of eating

the potato pancakes for breakfast...

...so I made radish pancakes today.

- Mother, this has a lot of butter.

- Have it.

I told you I am on a diet.

Having one won't make a difference.

Of course, it will.

I am trying to lose two kilos.

I got my portfolio done.

I was thinking of leaving

for Mumbai on Monday.

Monday reminds me, I have

spoken to Mehra Associates.

They have agreed on an

internship with them...

...while you finish your chartered

accountants course.

In fact, you can start with

them from Monday.

Papa, you didn't hear me.

I want to go to Mumbai...

to become a model.

I don't want to do an internship.

Meghna, I've told you earlier also.

Never mind.

Listen, dreaming isn't bad but...

But what father?

Fulfill only your dreams?

Can't I have my own dream?

I have decided...

I am going to Mumbai.

In that case there is

nothing left to discuss.

Do as you wish...

...but don't expect anything from me.

A little encouragement perhaps...

Encouragement for what?

You have lost your mind after

winning a small beauty pageant.

It was my fault.

Wants to be a model!

Though I have spoken to

your uncle Baldev...

...call me as soon as you reach.

Father...

Don't worry.

Everything will be alright

Love you...

You were much younger during

cousin Kuldeep's wedding.

Divya is very happy ever since

she learnt you were coming.

Sister...

Mother was mentioning

that you want to model.

It will be great to watch

her on television.

Divya...

Come Meghna, I will show

you to your room.

Of course and be comfortable.

Thank you.

This is Divya's room...

You will have to share it with her.

Sure.

It's a little small...

...but you won't be here for long.

Maybe a month, until I get work.

Alright, freshen up,

till then I will serve breakfast.

Thank you.

Okay, not today. Alright,

I'll talk to you later.

- Hi.

- Hello gorgeous, welcome to Mumbai.

No, no, darling.

Lesson number one...

...never kiss the cheeks, okay?

Sit.

I'm sorry I'm late

but what could I do.

Vinay wouldn't let me go.

Now before you jump into any conclusions,

Vinay Khosla is my boss.

You know the famous

Bollywood designer.

This evening we have to

do fittings for Duggu...

- You know last minute changes.

- Duggu?

Duggu... Hrithik.

Anyway, enough of blabbering.

You tell me how you are.

I'm okay.

When I saw you in that silly

beauty contest in Chandigarh...

I just knew that you

are going to be a star.

Thank you, Rohit.

I'm here because you

showed confidence in me.

Now everything is in your hands.

Don't worry, darling.

I am your man.

- Do you have your pictures?

- Yes, of course!

Okay, let me have a look.

What's the matter?

Nothing. Nothing. Fine.

Interesting, I'll handle it, okay?

Who are you looking for?

Your casting agent.

Here?

Shomu, hot shot co-ordinator,

a Godmother to the newcomers.

Don't be too fussy.

Have you ever travelled by

plane before?

I'm sending you to a foreign location.

So what if the role is small?

You will suffer one day.

And Shweta, you have a two dayjob.

No one gives more than 25,000 rupees

for a Punjabi dance number.

I would have done it,

if I were taller.

Ma'am, you are being called inside.

Who is it?

Are you new?

- Are you from the north?

- Yes.

What size are you?

Small, medium, large?

Listen, I am not interested.

It's the client who wants to know.

I wasjust about to call you.

I'm sending a girl for the catalogue.

Check her out.

What? What is your name?

Meghna... Meghna Mathur.

Her name is Meghna Mathur.

Bye.

Okay, listen, You have

an audition tomorrow.

B 409, Adarsh Nagar.

Be there at eleven o'clock.

Take the number from this chick.

Chick?

An audition? Tomorrow?

Yes, and listen if it works...

...I take a twenty per cent cut.

Is that clear?

Okay.

Stop here, I think this is the place.

How much is it?

Fifteen rupees.

Take this.

I recently did two advertisements.

What about you?

I'm an airhostess.

I got bored of serving people...

...so now I want to be a model.

Do you have a problem with that?

- No.

- Then stop bothering me.

It is a soap commercial, isn't it?

Alright, I will be there.

I am at Adarsh Nagar right now.

I will be at Famous studios in an hour.

Okay, pal, I'll be there, bye.

New?

Yes.

Auditioning for the first time?

How did you guess?

Only novices walk around

with their portfolio.

Seasoned models, like us,

send it in earlier or email it to them.

- By the way, I'm Manav... Manav Bhasin.

- Hello.

A veteran struggler.

Since nine months.

- And you?

- Who is Meghna Mathur?

That's me.

- Please, come in.

- Yes.

- All the best.

- Thank you.

Saira Khan...

Right profile...

Hi, I am Saira Khan. Age 22...

Hi... my name is Meghna Mathur.

just three orfour auditions.

It takes up to three
