Another guy calls Reema for another stunt. Media asks Vinni and Toni about the movie. Reema looks on from far while Vinni talks highly about the hard work she is putting in in doing the stunts.
Reema’s mother tells Reema against going to the set. You are still hurt. Plus they wont even show your face. Reema doesn’t mind anything. Heroine’s face will be shown. Why would I be shown?

The Hollywood producer wants to meet Reema. This does not go down well with Vinni. She has her eyes on the Hollywood project.
John offers Reema a film as an actress. I will work on your expressions and acting. Reema accepts the offer after a little hesitation.
Later, Suman and Vinni talk about the offer. Vinni is over confident of herself and her position in bollywood. Suman intentionally talks to her about her body double (Reema) getting an offer from Hollywood.

Reema talks about all their dreams which will come true soon because of this project. Her mother is very proud of her.
Vinni makes Reema repeats the stunts again and again. She is fuming thinking about Suman’s words. She keeps scolding Reema for no reason and even talks rudely to her. Reema is made to repeat the stunts. Toni tries to calm Vinni. He gets a call so he sends Mr. Mehra to explain Vinni. Mr. Mehra instead fills Vinni’s ears against Reema. Who will talk about you if Reema goes to Hollywood tomorrow? Your acting is a little weak. You cannot take the position of other heroines and if you continue doing so then! She slaps him and walks off. Toni scolds Mr. Mehra for complicating the situation all the more. Reema too witnesses the situation.
This happened the very next day itself. Maybe it was an accident. I had jumped off right. I don’t know how I landed on the ground. Normally it never happens. It has never happened in the past. John had called me to apologize to me. Kabir takes his number.
Kabir meets Reema’s Master. Does it happen often? Even Master ji is confused about the entire situation.
Kabir is a little irked with Kavya being on his head all the time. Kabir calls John.
The guy meets Suman at her house. They enjoy drinks together. He proposes to make her the new face of his film. She is thrilled at the news. I knew it already which is why I engaged the best stunt trainer for the next 3 months. He says I was trying to take Vinni’s audition too. Suman says Vinni should actually be in jail at the moment. Who pushed Reema? He calls it an accident but she declines. Vinni pushed her. I met Vinni three days ago.
Vinni vows to take revenge from that stunt girl Reema. She grabbed that opportunity. I would have been doing debut in Hollywood. I wont spare her now. That night, Vinni was quite mad. Stunt assistant Ravi came in the van. Vinni pays him money. Ravi removed the safety net boxes. He hid the ground with boxes then. Whatever happened is known to everyone.
The director confirms it with Suman once again. He sends her to get some ice and meanwhile calls police team there. Flashback shows Kabir telling John everything. It was Kabir’s plan to make John meet Suman to find out the truth about Vinni.
Vinni, Suman and Ravi got arrested. They were charged under the respective crimes. John took responsibility of Reema’s expenses. He gave a guarantee that he will take Reema in his action film as soon as she gets well. There is no dearth of talent today. We only need to learn to appreciate the talent.
