The plot

Prashant Kumar "Fanney Khan" (Anil Kapoor), a part-time vocalist in an orchestra, dreams of becoming a singer but circumstances prevent him from being one. He rushes to the hospital and holds his newborn daughter, whom he names Lata, which is the name of famous singer Lata Mangeshkar.

Lata has a really good voice but she is made fun of because she is overweight. She is a big fan of Baby Singh (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), a famous singer, who is fed up of her life and wants a break. Prashant's factory is closed and he starts working as a taxi driver.

One day, coincidentally, Baby Singh travels in Prashant's taxi. When she asks for water, Prashant mixes sleeping pills in the water bottle. He calls his best friend Adhir (Rajkummar Rao) and tells him that he is kidnapping Baby Singh to release an album of his daughter. With a lot of request, Adhir agrees to help him.

During this incident, Adhir and Baby Singh become really good friends. Adhir finally takes her out and she starts enjoying herself. She also thanks him for bringing her dog, Ustaad, who she considers to be her true friend but problems arise when Prashant watches the TV where police get to know that Baby Singh is kidnapped as the watchman of Baby Singh's house reveals that he saw a man(Adhir) kidnap her dog.

Prashant asks Baby's director to release an album of his daughter but wears a mask of Rajnikant. Lata is really excited about her own album and after recording, she talks about her experience from which, the director gets to know that her father is the kidnapper and he is famous with the name of Fanney Khan. He recognizes him in their next meeting. Prashant finally removes his mask and reveals that he can trust him and his friend Adhir.

Lata is replaced by Baby Singh to perform in Reality Show(India ki Awaaz). Meanwhile, Adhir and Baby are nowhere to be found. Police and TV reporters agree to cast him live with his daughter before she performs. Lata realizes that the song she is going to sing was written by her father. She sings and makes her parents feel proud.

Later, a video releases where Baby and Adhir are in a live-in relationship and are on vacation. They both admit that they are a big fan of Lata Sharma. The film ends with the society praising Lata and the hard work done by Prashant to make his daughter a singer.
