As movie making enters India in the early decades of the twentieth century it comes up against a traditional, and deeply suspicious, society. No woman, not even one who makes her living on Aatvi Galli, will be seen dead in a film. Undeterred, Kapilraj gets Ganpat to play the film's heroine. But just as Ganpat comes to terms with his new identity and begins to enjoy success, the old suspicions disappear. Kapilraj gets the woman he wants for the movies. And Ganpat is left dealing with a deep sense of betrayal, in addition to the doubts about his own sexuality.
