- Greetings.

Four plates of special Biryani.


Here you are.

I've seen 'Anand' seven times.

- Really?

That too at the theatres.

I remember every

dialogue from that film.

Wow... bless you my 'Mureed'.

- Who is 'Mureed.' My name is Neerja.

Oho! Mureed means fan. Fan.

Just like I am a fan of Dilip Kumar.

And I am Rajesh Khanna's.

May God bless you with a long life.

Life should be big, not long.

Well said! Goodbye.



- Will you have some?

Sister's here!

Sister's here!

- Go get ready.

Hi Laado (Darling)!

- Hi brother.

Thank God you are here.

It's a very boring party.

Hi My 3D.

- So sorry I'm late.

Daddy's darling daughter!

Hi daddy!

Why are you so late?

Everyone has been

asking "Where is Neerja?"

Why are you eating samosas?

Are you hungry?

Did you eat the fruit

I packed for you?


- I had packed flat bread for you.

She must have eaten nothing!

See! She didn't eat?

Look at her.


Good evening everybody!

Today, the boys and

girls of Navjeevan society...

...are going to dance... our favourite superstar

Rajesh Khanna's song!

Everyone's favorite superstar

or YOUR favorite superstar!

Mine too.

- Mama not fair!

My favorite! Everyone's favorite!

Rajesh Khanna the super star's song!

Look at your son!




"Bye-bye miss, goodnight.

We'll meet again tomorrow."

"Bye-bye miss, goodnight.

We'll meet again tomorrow."

"The day was colourful,

the dazzling night has arrived."

"The day was colourful,

the dazzling night has arrived."

"Bye-bye miss, goodnight.

We'll meet again tomorrow."

"Bye-bye miss, goodnight.

We'll meet again tomorrow."

Those were the kids!

For Navjeevan society!

That was amazing!

And now a special

performance by my parents!

They are going to sing!

They want you to sing, not me!

You haven't clicked

a single good snap of me!

Click their snap!

"My heart has been crazy since childhood."

"Love is the reason for |ife."

"The flowers didn't impress me,

I never enjoyed a nap in a hammock."

"The flowers didn't impress me,

I never enjoyed a nap in a hammock."

"I found solace

in the softness of your tresses."

"Bye-bye miss, goodnight."

- Ok, dad. That's it! Enough flirting!

And now...

...a special act!

Our society's Robot-boy!

"Bye-bye miss, goodnight.

We'll meet again tomorrow."


- Bye-bye!"


- Bye-bye!"

He is here.

- He is here.

Go down.


- Hello!


Put it on the table.

Good evening.

Good evening.

She loves posing for snaps!

Don't bother.

Everyone kept waiting

for you to liven up the party.

Hold it carefully.


Did you see Mama dancing today?

She was having great fun!

- You mimic!

I had to compete with you, right?

She's perfected the dance step.

Go to bed now.

Please wake me up in a while.

- Go get some sleep. Don't you get tired?

Oh, Nikki!

Why don't you take sick leave?


Shanti is also on sick leave...

...and this is my first

flight as Head Purser.


I'm not giving you this.

I'll read it on the flight.

Read it when you come back.

You won't die if you don't read it.

You're so mean.

Papa, I never got back

the last magazine I gave her.

Look Laado,

they're showing your commercial.

Which one?

You look like an aunty!

These are 4 AK47s,

8 grenades and bullets.

Safarini will wear the explosives belt.

Fahad and Mansoor,

be careful with the grenades.

And these clothes are for you.


It's 1 o'clock.

If you let her sleep some

more then she'll get late.

I have to complete this article.

You wake her up.
