Plot

Maya (Kajol) is a perfect mother. Her life revolves around her three children, Aleya (Aanchal Munjal), Ankush (Nominath Ginsburg), and Anjali (Diya Sonecha). Despite being divorced from her husband, Aman (Arjun Rampal), Maya has ensured that everything runs smoothly in her house and that they continue to remain a happy family unit. However, when Aman introduces his girlfriend, Shreya (Kareena Kapoor) a career oriented woman, who has a lot to learn about children, to the family, the situation immediately takes an unexpected turn.

When Shreya comes with Aman to Anjali’s birthday party, she accidentally drops Anjali’s cake – this causes the kids to perceive Shreya as evil. The next day, Aman tells Shreya to babysit the three kids at his house because Maya is out of town. At a fashion show Anjali helps Shreya with the outfit. When Shreya goes to get ice cream for the kids, Aleya tells Anjali and Ankush that she is using them so she can take their dad away; soon after Anjali goes missing. At the police station, Shreya and the kids see Maya and Aman, and Shreya is told by Aman that she cannot go near the children unless she has Maya’s permission.

Several days later, Maya finds out that she has terminal cancer and tells Aman – this prompts him to move back in with the family. However, when Maya tells the kids that she has cancer, Aleya retaliates by going to one of her friend’s party with an older boy. After a few days later Maya tells Shreya that she has cancer. Shreya agrees to move in and leaves her career as a fashion designer. In the following days, all three kids develop an attachment towards Shreya. But when Maya and Shreya have a fight Aman tells Maya that they should not be competing with each other. At the same time Maya faints and ends up in the hospital and the doctor tells her that she has only few days left. Shreya has to take care of the kids while Aman is with Maya at the hospital. Maya comes home for Diwali and all the kids make a special event for her. When they take a family photograph, Maya asks Shreya to join them as she is now family. Ten years later we see Aleya getting married and Shreya gives her a bracelet which belonged to Maya. Aleya wishes that her mother was there. In the end, Shreya looks at the stars and remembers what Maya said to her.
