With some initial hesitation Mimi gets ready for it and also gets pregnant. Mimi tells family that she is going to Mumbai for 9 months film shoot and shifts in her friend Shama’s house. Things looks to be settled.

In one of the routine pregnancy checkup, Doctor informs that unbron kid is showing some syndrome related with disability. American couple gets disheartned and fearful with this news and refuses to take this baby further. Bhanu tries to convince them but couple just ask him to get rid of it and flew back to America. Mimi has to return to her family. To calm his family she misinforms that Bhanu is her husband and that brings lots of comical twist in this story. Slowly family gets settled with this with lots of laughable incidents.
