Piali, listen to me!

What did you do, Piali!

You broke my new LED TV!

It was so expensive.

I haven't even paid

the full amount yet.

Are you insane?

- I'm not insane, you are!

We've been together for five years...

...but you still can't

be on time for a date.

I was waiting at King's Cross for

the past one hour, Luv. Grow up!

Look, what's the big deal?

Everyone's got some

weakness or the other.

My weakness is that I'm a little lax

when it comes to matters of time... what's the big deal?

Screw you. What's the big deal?

You can't bloody wash

the dishes after you eat.

You can't keep your

side of the bed tidy.

You can't empty out the

ashtray into the dustbin.

You bloody dirty pig!

You know, Luv. Mum was always right.

You will never understand me.

I changed for you. I've

become a proper Indian girl.

Even the way I dress.

I've even learnt how to make

rice and beans, just for you.

Hey, thanks a lot!

But I don't want all this.

I don't like

traditionally dressed Indian girls.

Why can't you

understand this? Listen...

when we first met... had this spark in you.

You were charming, you were wild... were open about things.

You had this really good energy.

But now... you've become a British cow!

And rice and beans?

David on Oxford Street makes

better rice and beans than you.

Mum's right.

Indian guys like you only

come to London for money.

Not love.

You Indians have no

respect for anything.

You are classless and cheap.


Hey coconut!

If I continue to be with you, I'll need

to pop a few pills of Disprin everyday!

Do you think if you're born in

Britain, you're automatically British?

You know what you actually are.

You're a British Born Confused Desi...

...a 'BBCD.'

Enough okay. That's it!

Enough! I just can't take it.

It's finished. Over.






Mum was right.

You are classless and cheap.

You and your mum can go to hell,

Reshmaben Patel from Surat...

...come here with high

hopes to become a Brit.

You are a dog, Luv!

Still better than being a

Gujju Patel from London!



Sh*t! Sh*t! Sh*t!



That was John who just arrived at

the success party of 'lshq Kamina'.

Today was the first day

of the film's release...

...and producers declared it a hit

based on just the Friday collections.

If there's any truth

behind this celebration...

...we'll only get to know at the

box office report in a week from now.


Oh damn! Sorry, sorry madam.

You aren't hurt I hope?

You're live on air.


You're live on air.

Oh, okay! Sorry.

Get out of here.

- Oh, okay. Sorry.

Let's take one more.

Sir, it's a private party tonight.

You can't go in.

We're guests for that very party.

Check the guest list.

Akash Chopra, Raghav Dhawan and Kush.

Just Kush.

Assistant directors of Ishq Kamina!

Okay sir. You may go in.

Guys, we're going to

drink like dogs tonight!



- How are you doing, Kush?


How you doing, baby?

- Good, good.

Hey, I think you're ready now.

Ready for?

Ready to direct your movie!

Hey, the thing is my phone's ringing.

One second.

Sir, excuse me.

Hello Bhaisahab (Elder brother).

Hello Kush, where are you?

What's all that noise in the back?

I'm at a party. Hold on.

I'll step outside.

You are always partying.

Bhaisahab, my film is a hit.

It's a success party for that.

Oh, so it's a hit. Good, good.

Listen, when are you going home?

I'm leaving on Tuesday.

Is everything alright?

You know Piali, don't you?

- Not at all!

You're finding this funny?

She's actually gone this time.

I broke up with her.


- Again!

No, this time it's serious.

She is mad.

She says guys like me come

to London only to make money...

...but deep down inside will

always remain classless, cheap.

You think I'm cheap?

Bhaisahab, relax.

When did this happen?

Some 15 minutes back.

It's okay. It happens.

Have fun for a few days now.

No, enough is enough.

It's time now.

Time for what?

Time to get married.


Bhaisahab. Marriage?

It's not some game.

I know.

But I am very sure.

I just want to get married.

But where's the girl?

That's the reason why I've called you.


Look, you know that

when it comes to women... track record has been a disaster.

I'm always barking up the wrong tree.

And I have made up my mind.

I don't want to

marry a girl from London.

That's why there's ajob for you.


- Look, Kush.

I am a little emotionally

broken because of the breakup.

And to be very honest. It

gets a little lonely here.


I've had enough of this bachelorhood.

I want to settle down.

I want to have a family.

I was thinking I would get

married this year to Piali.

But even that's not

going to happen anymore.

I understand.

Do one thing.

Go to mum and dad.

And find a nice girl for me with them.

Look, they're old school people...

...but you and I are alike.

We both loved Madhuri

Dixit as kids, remember?

I'm absolutely certain,

that the girl you like...

...I would like for sure.

This Christmas, I want

to be a married man.

Oh, Bhaisahab, hold on to your horses!

Girls don't just grow on trees.


Don't worry. I'll do something, okay?

I love my brother!

Love you, brother!

What happened?

Who called?

It was Bhaisahab.

Tell me. What kind of

name is 'Bhaisahab'?

My name is Police Kush. What is yours?

My name?

My name is, Bhaisahab!

A girl for Bhaisahab!

It's a big responsibility, man.

He's trusted me.

I have to do it.

I will find her... brother's bride.
