Bodyguard is the story of conflict- between innocence and mischief, love and power and life and death!
When it comes to being punctual and doing his duties perfectly, Lovely Singh is unmatchable. Summoned for an assignment of guarding Divya, the daughter of Sartaj Rana, a business tycoon Lovely Singh accompanies her to her campus, but ends up rubbing her the wrong way with his over-protective nature and paranoia about security. She finds him to be a major obstacle in leading a regular campus life.
To throw him off-track and get him out of the way, she comes up with a ‘master-plan’- that of trapping him in a fake love affair. She becomes an anonymous admirer of his and starts hounding him, expressing her ‘feelings’ in no uncertain terms. Lovely Singh however proves to be a tough nut to crack. But once she succeeds in doing so, he transforms into a completely different person. But things take an unexpected turn when she learns a few things about Lovely Singh. And she soon finds herself trapped in a dilemma that she’s unable to resolve! And with her, soon enough, Lovely Singh finds himself ensnared in a web of lies, trickery and deceit!
