Ashok Bansal (Jackie Shroff) has a traumatic childhood which teaches him that money matters most to people, even more than their kids. Ashok starts hating poor people and starts working hard to get out of poverty. In the process of acquiring wealth, he neglects his family consisting of his younger brother Anil (Shahrukh Khan) and sister Suneeta (Nivedita Saraf). He gets Suneeta married to a man who turns out to be a gold-digger whereas she is in love with Ashok's manager (Vivek Vaswani). Anil goes against his brother’s highhanded ways and marries Kavita (Nagma), opting to leave the house. In a serendipitous twist of fate, Ashok’s life changes forever when Munna (Pooja Ruparel) enters his life, having run away from an orphanage where the warden ill-treats the children. She initially creates havoc in Ashok’s life but when he returns her to the orphanage, but then, he realizes that he misses her. Realizing the importance of family, he decides to adopt her and mend fences with his own family, finally freeing his sister from her abusive husband and inviting Anil to return home. Ashok's change of heart, transforms his family from a fractured and bitter state, to one filled with love and unity!

In 1990, Rakesh Roshan was contemplating signing Kimi Katkar opposite Amitabh Bachchan for his new project. Later, he dropped the idea of signing Katkar and penciled Sangeeta Bijlani and Ashwini Bhave for the role. The film with Bachchan never got made, but Rakesh Roshan did go ahead with the project and signed Jackie Shroff instead. It was later titled 'King Uncle'.

Amitabh Bachchan was approached to play the lead.
