In the presence of the film crew

In London, a girl likes a boy a little too much. And, in a parallel universe, there’s a boy who likes a girl. These two unrequited love stories, burdened by social status, caste, religion and inequality, are breathlessly headed towards each other… two tragic love stories, one musical and an uncanny coincidence as told by the Guru of Love: DJ Mohabbat.
