A complex love story set during India's Partition era, where the young Roop is torn between respect for husband Dev and her newfound love for Zafar. While their back stories and heart-breaking love saga unfolds, the history of India takes an epic turn, from where there is no coming back.
The story is based in a town called Husnabad, near Lahore, a few years before the Partition of India and Pakistan. It's a town populated by blacksmiths and a majority of them are Muslims. Husnabad's most affluent family is the Chaudhrys - Dev and his father Balraj (Sanjay Dutt), who also run a liberal newspaper called The Daily News. Satya (Sonakshi Sinha) is dying because of a fatal disease and wants Roop (Alia Bhatt) to marry her husband Dev (Aditya Roy Kapur). Dev's life takes a sudden turn when he gets married to Roop. Roop also has some demands to stay in Dev's castle after getting married to him and being his second wife - she wants to learn singing from a brothel owner Bahar Begum (Madhuri Dixit). During a visit to Bahaar Begum's chamber Roop meets Zafar, the local blacksmith and after several meetings they develop strong feelings for each other.
