She is a homely girl who loves her dad, and who is ambitious about her career. As life has it, her paths crossed with Jeetu, a magician’s path and life take a huge leap. In fact, I can actually relate with Disha because, just like her, in a flicker of a moment, with one just destined incident, my life took a major leap.”
