On every street in every home, somewhere in India, there is a 'nobody' who wants desperately to be a 'somebody'. Jashnn is the story of one such nobody.
Akash is a struggling musician who lives on his singular dream of stardom. Supporting him in his quest for fame and success are three band members. An orphan, Akash is supported (financially) by his sister, who bears the ignominy of being mistress to a very wealthy and powerful man.
Anjana Sukhani as Sara
Full of spunk, Sara wears a don't-care attitude on her sleeve and easily makes Akash fall in love with her. But before you can dismiss her as a frivolous eye candy, Sara takes in the screen by storm, supporting Akash through his struggles, keeping his faith alive himself amid all hopelessness.
Shahana Goswami as Nisha
She can easily be summed up as a pitiable whore, who survives on the largesse doled out by her benefactor. Pity, however, begins to give way to compassion for the character of Nisha, as one discovers her love for the man in her life to be greater that the need for him.
Humayun Saeed as Aman Bajaj
Dashing and charismatic, this is one negative character you find to hate! Playing Nisha's man and Akash's enemy on screen, Aman's character seeks to explore a whole new way in which we view the bad guy in Bollywood! Aman's character exudes shades of grey, where the thin line between right and wrong often seems blurred.
Akash Verma (Adhyayan), a twenty-year-old Indian lad, thirsts to become a singing icon that can blaze a trail for him among the galaxy of existing stars. But though he has dreams in his heart, he has been unable to find that distinctive voice that he can call his own, that will propel him to the top. Only when he's shattered by life and unflinchingly looks at the sordid truth straight in the face - that he is freeloading off his elder sister Nisha (Shahana), who, in order to offer him a decent life style, has become the mistress of a rich businessman, Aman Bajaj (Humayun Saeed) , is he is able to touch his inner core.
Call it irony or a twist of fate, but the person who sees him through this dark night and mentors him when he's down and out is none other than the sister of the person who he hates most in the world...Aman Bajaj. It is Sara (Anjana Sukhani), Aman's sister, who makes him realize that he is an extremely talented man who is simply going through a bad phase and that the biggest crime a human being can commit, is to give up on himself.
Spurred by life's bittersweet lessons, and Sara's genuine love and support, Akash, in the harshest winter of his life discovers an invincible summer within himself...thereby discovering his own voice. With this very special tune which has been soaked with the passion of his lived life, he not only touches his inexhaustible potential and becomes an overnight star but also brings dignity it his beleaguered sister, humbles his biggest detractor Aman Bajaj and in the process, lives up to the faith that Sara had in him all along.
