Reliance Big Pictures and Kunal Kohli Productions’ Break Ke Baad is the story of a young boy and a young girl, who love each other, but then comes a break in their relationship, which leads to a break-up. What happens thereafter?
Abhay Gulati (Imran Khan) and Aaliya (Deepika Padukone) are childhood friends. Their friendship blossoms into love. Aaliya’s life is defined by her burning desire to become an actress and she is so consumed by this that she is unmindful of what or who comes in her way. Abhay, working in his father’s cinema, is unsure about what he wants to do in life. He loves Aaliya very much and is prepared to overlook all her faults and childish qualities.
One day, Aaliya decides to go to Australia for a year for further studies. Abhay is against the idea for fear of losing Aaliya but he gives in when she proposes that they both take a break from one another. Abhay soon finds himself in Australia by his girlfriend’s side because he senses, he might lose her. This angers Aaliya so much that she decides to break up the relationship completely. She asks him to return to India but he stays on, hoping to get Aaliya back into his life. Helping Abhay are their new friends in Australia – Nadia (Shahana Goswami) whose house Abhay and Aaliya have rented, and Cyrus (Yudhishtir Urs).
Abhay returns to India when, after trying hard, he is unable to convince Aaliya to revive their relationship. To win her over while in Australia, Abhay also starts his own little business in Australia. However, Aaliya, who had promised to only complete a course in mass communication there, also takes up an acting assignment that comes her way.
Back in India, does Abhay decide to forget Aaliya? Is Aaliya able to erase Abhay out of her thoughts while in Australia? What eventually happens after the break and break-up?
