Rakesh from Furstaganj; and Vimmi from Pankhipur; hail from small towns but dream big.... Rakesh , son of a ticket-checker , dreams of building a big business of his own . Vimmi , a seemingly simple homely girl , in fact aspires of making it big in the fashion world . When the small-town sensibilities around them threaten to nip their aspirations in the bud , they leave their respective homes for Mumbai - the city of opportunity . Their paths collide , and their identical backgrounds and similar nature of their dreams draws them close . They form a conning duo with "Bunty" and "Babli" being their respective aliases . In the beginning they con people for money and later just for fun . They fall in love , get married , and resort to a lifetime of conmanship . However , ACP Dashrath Singh is hot on their trail and has sworn to nab them .
Hrithik Roshan was approached for the role of Bunty. However, recalling the disastrous Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002), he put a condition that he would do the film if it was directed by either Yash Chopra or Aditya Chopra. Abhishek Bachchan was approached next and he accepted the role.
