Om Prakash Makhija (Shahrukh Khan) is a junior artist aspiring to become a superstar one day and live life of luxury and comfort. He is a die-hard fan and a secret lover of popular actress Shanti Priya (Deepika Padukone). His mother and Papu (Shreyas Talpade) are the only true believers of his talent. A fire accident on one of the shooting sets introduces Shanti to Om.
As Om finds happiness and satisfaction in coming to Shanti's rescue, he is shattered upon discovering that Shanti is secretly married to film producer Mukesh Mehra (Arjun Rampal), a heartless opportunist, who kills her after she admits her pregnancy to him. As a witness to this crime, Om gets killed in a fight with Mehra's men.
Om Prakash is reborn now as Om Kapoor, a star-kid. When flashes of his past-life are revealed to him in visions, Om Kapoor focuses all his energies on taking revenge on Mehra for killing his love, Shanti. He plans a conspiracy with Shanti's clone Sandy, his mother and friend, Papu to make Mehra (who is now a big producer in Hollywood) confess about his deadly crime.
Will the purpose of Om's rebirth be fulfilled? Will Mukesh Mehra confess his crime? What is the future of Om and Sandy?
