Yash is a close associate at Shamsher’s empire and Sikander’s confidante and Raghuvendra or more commonly known as Raghu chahcha is the bodyguard and close confidate to Shamsher. In a flashback scene, it is revealed that Rana Vijay is Shamsher’s business rival and he creates problems for Shamsher’s family business. As both Sanjana and Sooraj age to 25 years, their family lawyer explains the will of their deceased mother. As per the will, the twins are entitled for the rest of 50% of property as joint partner (25% share each), and the rest 50% for Sikander. This visible disparity causes the twins to hate Sikander even more as Shamsher preferred Sikander more than the twins. Shamsher tells both of them that Sikander is the son of his elder brother Ranchor Singh.
In a flashback, that portrays the Handia village of the 1970s, the history of the Singh family is depicted. Both the Singh brothers used to supply weapons to Indian army. Local politicians of Handia asked them for illegal weapons to which Ranchor refused. His refusal caused rivalry with a local politician. One day, during an ambush on arms truck which was owned by Ranchor’s company, Vijendar Singh’s son was killed by Ranchor’s gunshot. One day, Ranchor died when his car was exploded by a bomb. The arm’s company owned by Singh family was then declared to be a legitimized anti-state and accused of supplying weapons to terrorists. Shamsher sends Sikander to Beijing for studies and takes Sikander’s widowed mother to Al-Shifa. After 1 year the twins are born.
Back to present day Al-Shifa, one night, Yash talks about his girlfriend. Sikander reveals that in Beijing he fell in love with a girl named Jessica who severed ties with him. Shamsher’s childhood friend Brijmohan tells him that his friend’s hotel was used by politicians for their lascivious motives where all the activity was captured on a spy video camera and stored on a hard disk. The hard disk was kept at a bank’s locker in Cambodia. Shamsher appoints Sikander for the recovery of the hard disk, and he promises him to get back the disk. The next day, during a party it is revealed that Jessica is actually Yash’s girlfriend. Sikander and Jessica meet privately in the security room. The very next day, Sooraj and Sanjana, who had recorded the Sikander-Jessica meet, screen the video to Yash. A furious Yash goes to Jessica’s apartment and finds Sikander present with her. Sikander later tells him that both of their past interactions with Jessica were planned by Sooraj and Sanjana, as part of their plan to destroy Sikander. Yash teams up with Sikander against the twins but pretends to be with the twins as well. Sikander, the twins, Yash and Jessica execute the mission to recover the hard disk.
After retrieving the hard disk, Shamsher eliminates Sikander by planting explosives in Sikander’s car and heads to a conference with the politicians whose objectionable videos were stored on the disk. Shamsher tells about Sikander’s death to the politicians, in the presence of the twins. He then plugs the hard disk and is shocked to find out that the disk was not the original one. Rather, it contained only one video of Sikander’s mother. Sikander’s mother self-filmed a video in which she reveals the truth that Ranchor was killed by Shamsher, and the twins were Ranchor’s kids. Sikander arrives, and reveals that he knew that is Shamsher killed his dad, but kept it a secret for ten years and had been pretending to be loyal to Shamsher. Shamsher revealed that Yash is his real son to the twins before beating them up and before Sikander’s arrival. After a fight scene in the desert between Sikander and Yash, Sikander demolishes the entire army of Shamsher and makes both Yash and Shamsher surrender to Jessica who happens to be an Interpol officer. The arrested father-son duo are flown to their native village Handia.
In the climax, Sikander reveals that he had been planning all the events along and revealed all the plans and secrets to the twins and Jessica. Shamsher is seen bribing a police officer during jail proceedings, while Yash is seen to be toning his body inside the prison cell.
