Kareena Kapoor plays Dia Sharma
Dia is a passionate, strong-headed, young activist from Delhi. She is unconcerned towards her own safety, to her parents' dismay, in order to assist and uplift the socially repressed. The unwavering and outspoken Punjabi strongly believes in her principles and never thinks twice before punishing someone in the wrong. But it is this exceedingly upright almost neurotic behaviour that comes in between her relationship with Sriram. She finally decides to discard her safety net and take a life-changing step to move to a remote rural village and save the inhabitants from hardship. She successfully gains a respectful and influential position in the hearts of the villagers. Once betrayed by Sriram, she stubbornly refuses to forgive him when he lands up there. She is certain that her love for him comes second to her goal in helping the villagers till she realizes his true potential.
Dia is thus the power-bomb strong Indian girl that finds it hard to find the correct mix of what her brain tells her to do and what her heart really wants.
