The house is taken care of by Mirza. But Mirza is waiting for his wife Fatima’s death so that he can become the rightful owner of the mansion. However, Baankey Rastogi (Ayushmann Khurrana) is one poor tenant who lives in the mansion but is unable to pay appropriate rent. He lives with his mother and three little sisters. His rent has been overdue for months.
So, whenever Mirza finds a chance, he nags Baankey for rent. This leads to frustration in Baankey and one day he kicks the wall of one of the bathrooms in the mansion, leading the bathroom to collapse.
