Rich and wealthy Akash Verma (Salman Khan) befriends poor, orphaned, crippled Aman (Sanjay Dutt). Akash introduces Aman to his parents, and they adopt him and give him their family name. Akash and Aman grow up as brothers. While Akash is a womanizer, Aman gets to writing poems under the name of Sagar, which gets published, and he becomes very popular. One of his fans is a young woman by the name of Pooja Saxena (Madhuri Dixit), and they correspond through letters with each other over the next few months. Gradually, Aman falls in love with her. However, when Akash meets Pooja, he falls head over heels in love with her. When Aman comes to know of this, he asks Akash to pose as Saagar, which he does, and both Pooja and Akash fall in love with each other, while a heartbroken Aman looks on, as he knows that although women may like his poems, no girl will love him when they see his handicapped condition.
