If you haven’t gotten your copy yet of the Kurbaan CD, you are in for a real treat. Not only because the songs are excellent and it includes some fabulous pictures of stars Saif Ali Khan, Vivek Oberoi and Kareena Kapoor, but they have given fans a glimpse into the story. On one panel of the CD booklet there is a small nugget of information about the story arc of Kareena’s character, who is named Avantika.
Here is what is written inside the CD booklet:
“Avantika is a teacher in a university in Delhi. She has come back from New York where she teaches, because her father has suffered a heart attack. During this period, she meets a temporary Professor called Ehsaan Khan. Soon they begin seeing each other and love blossoms. A few months later, Avantika receives a call from her university in New York, asking her to come back for the Fall Semester. Avanitka breaks the news to Ehsaan. He in turn, tells he doesn’t mind coming to the states with her, to find a job. But first they need to get married.
“Soon after the marriage, they leave to start a new life in New York. They buy a house in an Indian neighborhood and move in. Just as they are setting up home, their conservative Muslim neighbors, Hamid and Anjum, invite them over for dinner. The next morning, Salma, one of the women Avantika met the night before at the dinner, visits her under the pretext of gifting her sweets. When Avantika invites her in, Salma tells her that she is in grave danger. Nothing is what it seems. Salma pleads with Avantika to help her. What follows next, is a series of incidents that suck Avantika into a vortex of danger and intrigue. As her life spirals out of control, Avantika realizes that she is a pawn in a huge game. And no one is to be trusted.”
