This is a story about a rich man Raj (Salman Khan), who meets and marries Priya (Rani Mukherjee), and they intend to have a child right away. Raj's grandfather (Amrish Puri) is anxious to see an heir be born to the family before he dies someday. Priya gets pregnant and the family floods them with loving attention. Then, while the family plays cricket, the ball lands near Priya who is watching the game. As she gets up to retrieve their ball, she trips and falls and injures herself badly. The doctor says that she will be fine, but they lose the baby. What's more, Priya will never be able to get pregnant again. Knowing that this will devastate Raj's grandfather because there will not be an heir to the family, Raj and Priya decide to keep this a secret from the family. Raj and Priya decide to hire a surrogate mother to bare a child with Raj. Raj heads out to the red light district and finds a willing "lady of the night" named Madhoo (Preity Zinta), and offers to pay her a small fortune to have his child. So Raj and Priya tell their family that they are going to move to Switzerland for a year because Raj (says he) has a business prospect he wants to explore. These two take Madhoo with them and so the three will live together. Priya stays at a bus depot throughout a rainy cold night so that Raj and Madhoo can "do the deed" so that Madhoo can become pregnant. As Raj and Priya take care of Madhoo, Raj tries to teach Madhoo how to walk, talk, and be more like a respectable lady, and not the "no class" bar girl that she has always been. As Madhoo grows into becoming a respectable, loving, woman, she also starts to fall in love with Raj. Priya begans to feel the threat of Madhoo's yearnings nearing the final stages of Madhoo's pregnancy. And to make matters worse, Raj's family decided to show up in Switzerland in an unannounced surprise visit, to be with Raj and Priya when the baby is born.
