SYNOPSIS
Rahul, a gifted musician whose career is on a downward spiral, takes it upon himself to groom small-time singer Aarohi into a rising star. Romance eventually blossoms between the two, but Rahul's chronic alcoholism nearly jeopardises both their careers and personal lives. With things taking a further turn for the worse, their final attempt at redemption may come at a heavy price for the star-crossed lovers.

He sings. She sings. He, for his stardom. She, for her supper. And the twain meet. In a restrobar, where she croons and he swoons. And Aashiqui is born. Again!
