Ashok Bansal (Jackie Shroff) has a traumatic childhood which teaches him that money matters most to people, even more than their kids. Ashok starts hating poor people and starts working hard to get out of poverty. In the process of acquiring wealth, he neglects his family consisting of his younger brother Anil (Shahrukh Khan) and sister Suneeta (Nivedita Saraf). He gets Suneeta married to a man who turns out to be a gold-digger whereas she is in love with Ashok's manager (Vivek Vaswani). Anil goes against his brother’s highhanded ways and marries Kavita (Nagma), opting to leave the house. In a serendipitous twist of fate, Ashok’s life changes forever when Munna (Pooja Ruparel) enters his life, having run away from an orphanage where the warden ill-treats the children. She initially creates havoc in Ashok’s life but when he returns her to the orphanage, but then, he realizes that he misses her. Realizing the importance of family, he decides to adopt her and mend fences with his own family, finally freeing his sister from her abusive husband and inviting Anil to return home. Ashok's change of heart, transforms his family from a fractured and bitter state, to one filled with love and unity!

The film is inspired from the American movie Annie (1982).

Amitabh Bachchan was the first choice for the lead role.

Shah Rukh Khan had signed the film because he was told that Amitabh Bachchan would be in it. When Rakesh Roshan could not sign Amitabh, Shah Rukh asked him if he could leave the film. Rakesh said yes he could but he would prefer to have him in the film. Shah Rukh decided to stay on.
