Billu has mentioned to his family that he knows Sahir from the past but has never elaborated how he knows the star. When his children talk about their father's friendship with the star, word spreads throughout the village. Virtually overnight, Billu, who had previously been scorned by most due to his lowly state, becomes the center of attention. People who had spurned him only the week before now call him a close friend so that he will introduce them to Sahir. Billu refuses and downplays the friendship. Even so, the powerful businessman Sahukaar Daamchand (Om Puri) demands to see Sahir and offers Billu expensive gifts in order to gain such a meeting. When Billu consistently fails to introduce the people of the village to Sahir, his situation changes once again. He is accused of lying about his friendship and everyone — including his wife and children — begin to doubt his character and integrity. Rather than defend himself, Billu remains quiet about the nature of his and Sahir's friendship.
On Sahir's last day in the village, the star speaks at a local school. He tells the children about his own impoverished childhood when he had nothing but a special friendship with another young boy, named Billu. It was Billu who took care of Sahir and eventually helped him travel to Mumbai where Sahir became a star. Billu, who is standing at the back of the event, leaves during the talk without revealing to Sahir that he is there. Bu the townspeople, realizing their error, take Sahir to Billu's house. Billu's children come home and apologize to their father. Then, Sahir appears, and Billu and Sahir are reunited. In the end, Sahir must leave for another shoot but promises that his and Billu's friendship is reignited and will remain.
After a hasty wedding, Suri takes Taani to his ancestral home in Amritsar. While his good nature leads Suri to treat her with exceptional care and patience, he is too frightened to profess his love for her. However, Taani tells him that while she will try to be a good wife, she can never love him due to having no love left within her. Suri, though, continues to indulge her every desire. This includes frequent visits to the cinema to see song and dance films which appeal to Taani's fantasies about romance and her passion for dancing. She soon asks for Suri's permission, which he grants, to take an expensive dance class with the company Dancing Jodi to escape her mundane life at home.
During one visit to the cinema, Suri feels inadequate in comparison to the strong, masculine images that Taani admires and later asks his childhood friend Balwinder "Bobby" Khosla (Vinay Pathak), a hair-salon owner, for advice on how to win her love. Bobby is eager to help and suggests a complete makeover (shaving off his mustache, changing his hairstyle, outfitting him in casual Western-style clothing including aviator-style sunglasses with oversized pastel lenses). Suri is thus transformed into the swaggering, loud, rude, and fun-loving "Raj Kapoor", named by Suri after the hero in the movie that Taani had admired. He joins the dance class and by chance — or, as he believes, by divine intervention — becomes Taani's partner in the competition. Despite Raj's initial crudeness — a result of Surinder's inexperience with women and his attempt to emulate the "cool" images from movies — he and Taani become friends as they work together on their dance routine. Suri feels encouraged when Taani does not tie a rakhi (holy thread) on "Raj's" wrist during the festival of Raksha Bandhan (for to do so would indicate that she thought of him only as a brother). Thus, after a period of time, Raj declares his love for her. Suri's ruse poses a dilemma for both of them. Taani enters into a period of internal conflict, desperately wanting to escape from her despair-filled life through finding a new person to love. Despite wanting to escape what she believes is a loveless marriage, Taani feels compelled to stay with Suri due to the promise that she made to her father. Suri also faces an extraordinary paradox: Taani's sheer misery as his wife in contrast to her delight with his fabricated alter ego, Raj. He thus attempts to win Taani's love as Suri, an act which only alienates her further. She eventually runs away to find Raj in order to tell him the predicament she is in, hoping he will help her. He offers to elope with her, which she agrees to tearfully. They set the date for their elopement to the next night, the night of the competition.
On the day of the competition, Suri takes Taani to the Golden Temple in order to garner God's blessings for her competition that night—and internally, also for her life with Raj. While there Taani has an epiphany in which she believes God has shown her a sign that tells that her marriage to Suri is divinely inspired. For the first time she reflects on her husband and becomes aware of the strength and integrity of Suri's character. Taani thus tells Raj that she cannot run away with him. She leaves him in what appears to be a state of shock with tears in his eyes. When the time comes for their performance Taani is stunned to see Suri, rather than Raj, join her on stage. It is at that moment that Taani puts two and two together and through a series of flashbacks discovers that Suri is in fact Raj. Backstage she confronts Suri and when he confesses his love for her, she tearfully admits that she returns his feelings. The two win the competition and head off on a second honeymoon to Japan.
The film has Shah Rukh Khan playing Om Prakash Makhija, a junior artist in film industry in the 1970s. He harbors a dream of becoming a big superstar someday. More than this dream he harbors love for someone special.
Deepika Padukone plays Shantipriya, a superstar of the 70s. Although she has fame and adulation of her fans, she longs for love in her life. She longs for someone who would love her from the bottom of his heart.
Om is not just a fan of Shanti, he loves her deep within. She inspires him and instills him with love and hope. He watches her from afar. But then, one day...
A small incident brings them together. Call it luck, divine intervention or just plain coincidence. When it happened, Om was witnessing the beginning of his love story.
But for some love stories, one lifetime is not enough. Om and Shanti's story is one such. Life and love would betray them both. But they would meet again in another life.
The story of OSO apparently has a reincarnation angle.
The second part of the story is set in 2007. SRK plays actor Om Kapoor and Deepika Padukone plays Sandy.
The team is a rag-tag bunch of girls with their own agenda. A bunch of girls who have forgotten what it is like to play for the love of the game. Of playing because you want glory for your country. Not because you want a pensioned job or a government flat.
They have all forgotten the sharp thrill of just holding the hockey stick, keeping their eyes on the ball and playing for all they are worth. They have played every game of hockey to make sure they get selected every year in the Indian National team. But what does it really mean to play for the Indian National team? To play for India? The girls have never known the thrilling energy of being Team India. Of giving their all to see their country's name on a trophy. But Kabir Khan, once a captain, now forgotten, does.
Kabir Khan knows what it takes to get there. And what it means to return empty handed. This time, he wants to make sure that it's different. He knows there are no second chances.
Despite his past, Kabir Khan believes that if only the girls played as one, anything would be possible. Because Kabir believes that it is not that we can't win. It's just that we have never believed we can.
'Chak De India' is the story of a coach's fight of making his team, Team India, by overcoming their diverse backgrounds, by learning to use everything that life hurls on them as a secret weapon.
It's a story about honesty, sincerity and integrity. A story to remind the nation of its National sport.

Dev happens to meet Maya before her wedding and despite being strangers, they connect instantly. It could be that the two are unhappy with their partners, it could be that Dev was only too happy to talk of his uncomfortable marriage or it could be that Maya just could not love Rishi and so, found Dev attractive. Whatever the case, the connection between the two remains a glowing spark that re-ignites when they meet four years later.
During those four years, Maya has married Rishi and Dev has met with an accident that leaves him crippled and ends his football career. So when Maya meets Dev the next time, he is bitter - his failed career and failing marriage are festering wounds to which his wife Rhea's professional success is salt. In the Talwar home, things are no better - Maya still does not feel any love for Rishi and feels guilty for her inability to have children.
Dev and Maya realize that their situations are similar and decide to help each other repair their breaking marriages. Things don't work quite as expected however, and they become more and more drawn to each other. At the same time, Rishi and Rhea are working to keep their marriages afloat and are willing to see hope in even the smallest, most innocuous signs from their partners. However, their efforts are insignificant in the face of Maya and Dev's intense unhappiness in their marriages and their growing love for each other.
Dev and Maya give in to a dreamy, coffee-drenched romance and realize they have fallen in love. However, when Dev is about to give flowers to Maya, he sees Rhea and gives them to her so she doesn't see Maya. He saves one rose for Maya. She takes the rose home and Rishi sees it and Maya gives it to him. Rhea and Rishi now think that their partners really love them and are happy. But after an incident at the ballet that makes Dev intensely jealous, they realize they now feel like they are cheating on each other with their own spouses. This realization brings them to a dramatic point of no return. Shortly afterward, they are caught in an embrace outside the train station by Sam and Kamaljeet.
Sam, having lived the good life for a long, long time ultimately has to bear the punishment of all his excesses - he has a fatal heart attack and as he lies on his death bed, he gives Maya some unconventional advice: he tells her to leave his son Rishi since neither of them are happy in their marriage.
Things come to a head and Dev and Maya decide to leave each other and return to their partners. But this re-union will not be without honesty, so they come clean and confess their extra-marital affair. Rishi and Rhea decide that enough is enough and end their marriages - this doesn't mean that Maya and Dev come together however. They only speak to each other on the phone, and lie to each other, saying that all is well in their marriages.
Three years later, Rishi goes to meet Maya and invites her to his wedding. There Rhea sees Maya for the first time in three years and realizes that she and Rishi weren't together as she thought. The news that Dev is still alone, combined with some prodding from Rishi and Rhea convinces Maya to run after Dev. Dev is about to catch a train to Canada when he sees Maya. He hides from her because he has told Maya earlier than he was happy with Rhea and he thinks that she is happily married to Rishi. However, Maya finds him in his seat a few seconds before his train leaves the station. He uses the emergency brakes to get out to meet her. Realising how alone the two have been, Dev proposes to Maya and she accepts.

One fateful day Raja's eyes fall upon Guri (Madhuri Dixit) a simple village belle. Driven by lust to posses her, he conspires to marry her by sending a photograph of Shankar along with a marriage proposal. Gauri instantly falls in love with Shankar and fantasizes about being his bride. On the marriage day Gauri spots Shankar in the crowd and finds Raja as the groom. Shocked she faints, but Raja grabs her and completes the wedding ceremony. Gauri never submits to Raja and she is kept under guard at all times. One day she tries to hang herself, but Shankar breaks into her room and saves her. She comes to his hut that night and she lights a flame in front of the Gods. A flame of love which would envelope them both in fire. Gauri's brother (Mohnish Behl) returns from Dubai and comes to see her. Inspite of all the sufferings, Gauri puts a smiling face. But Shankar stops her brother and tells him everything. While attempting to rescue his sister, her brother is killed by Raja. While dying, he turns to Shankar and pleads him to protect his sister. Shankar grabs the hand of his beloved and escapes from the mansion to the jungles. Raja uses everything in his power - helicopter, army jeeps, armed gunmen - to hunt Shankar and Gauri out of the jungles. Finally they fall prey to Raja. The innocent Gauri is arrested and Shankar is brutally beaten and thrown off the cliff. Shankar and Gauri are separated. But does the tale end there? If yes, then who is eliminating all of Raja's men one by one? Has Shankar returned from the dead? Who is the person terrorizing Raja with his voice? If undying faith can move mountains, if true love can over come all obstacles... then Shankar is back! Back to his life. Back to his love. Back to finish an old forgotten story. A story that began with one single piece of coal.

Kishorilal comes to India to find a traditional 'Indian' girl for his 'American' son.
He discovers Kusum Ganga (Mahima Choudhary), the daughter of an old friend (Alok Nath) and sends Rajiv and his foster son Arjun (Shah Rukh Khan) to India to meet her. Rajiv and Ganga are engaged, after which Ganga, an Indian soul comes to America with stars in her eyes and rainbow hued dreams in her heart.
