The story starts when Muskaan goes to city college and falls in love with Suraj, played by Salman Khan, and how Suraj tries to impress ‘the hard nut to crack’ Vishal and win his lady love.
Josh (2000): This flick had Shahrukh Khan playing the ‘Good Brat’ (yeah, we probably have heard this term somewhere) and also the over-protective “Big Bro” to none other than Aishwarya Rai.
