The movie revolves around the story of Veer Singh (Shahrukh Khan), an Indian Air Force pilot and Zaara (Preity Zinta), a Pakistani girl, who happen to meet in India and fall in love. Unfortunately, Zaara gets engaged to a Pakistani man, Raza and is forced to return.
However, Veer travels to Pakistan to see if he can win Zaara over and what follows is a series of events which end with him in prison.
Actress Preity Zinta, who played Zaara in the movie, shared that working with Director Yash Chopra on this labour of love was an incredible privilege and a most beautiful cinematic experience.
