Zubeidaaa (Karisma Kapoor) is the only child of a studio magnate (Amrish Puri)
whose passion for dancing is undeniable. With a little help from her father's
friend, she lands a role in a film. Her joy is short lived as her father
discovers this and puts an end to her acting career. To ensure that a stunt like
this is not repeated again, he gets her married at a very young age. Tragedy
strikes yet again when her hubby divorces her and moves to Pakistan, leaving her
with a young child.
