While drinking away his sorrows at a bar, he meets Nisha Sengupta (Sara Loren) and they have a relationship where Nisha moves into the house that Vikram was sharing with Roshni. Vikram becomes a suspect in the disappearance of Roshni, however, the investigators can find no evidence of Vikram’s involvement in Roshni’s disappearance.
It is revealed that the house is owned by a British lady who shows Roshni a secret room built to hide her husband just in case someone came to look for him because he was in British Army at the time of 1947. The room is self-contained
In a flashback, it is also shown that Roshni, jealous of Vikram’s relationship with one of his colleague, decided to pretend she is leaving him. She creates the video saying she is leaving as she hides in the secret room. The room has some one way mirrors where she can observe Vikram’s reaction. When she decides he has had enough she looks for the key and realises she lost the key and is now trapped in the room with no way to contact him.
