He becomes a cheater, cheating everyone and enjoying his life like a king. He even approaches a goon for a redevelopment of his house and takes money from him. Meanwhile, he falls in love with Mrudula (Pooja Sawant) who is a daughter of a hotel owner in Mauritius name Bob (Hrishikesh Joshi). Bob has recently purchased an Old English Bungalow in Mauritius and calls his family for a celebration. When everyone Bob's daughter, Wife (Asawari Joshi) and his Mom (Suhas Joshi) goes to the house for the first time, Bob's mom (Suhas Joshi) feels there is a ghost of an English man in the house and faints. She is taken to the hospital. In the Hospital, she warns Bobs that unless an Agnihotri Pandit of Pune do not perform Housewarming rituals she will not enter the house. For his mom, Bob asks his daughter to connect with her friend to get one pandit to Mauritius. Mrudula contacts Abhay and asks him to arrange for a pandit. Rather than arranging a knowledgeable pandit he himself decides to go Mauritius as a pandit. When he reaches Mauritius he acts as a pandit and tells Bobs that there is a ghost and in 5 days he will make ghost run away.
When Mrudula returns home she is shocked to see Abhay as a pandit and thinks he has come for her love. Same night when everyone is sleeping, Abhay realizes that there is a true ghost in the house and the ghost is of a Marathi lady name "sarangi" (Vrushali Chavan). She challenges Abhay that in next 5 days if he is able to move her out of the house then she will quietly go away and never come back but if he fails she will make the entire family go crazy and imprison him in the same house. Day 2 of the challenge, Sarangi takes over the body of Bob's mother and ask Abhay to take her to a place where she used to live earlier. When they reach that place, she meets her father's ghost who has been killed by Sarangi's Boyfriends father. Sarangi is happy to meet her father and his soul gets released. Bob is worried as his mother and pandit are not seen at home and lodges a missing complaint. When Bob's mother and Abhay return to Home, Bob is surprised to see his mother dress in his wife dress and blames Abhay for such behavior. Mrudula realizes that Abhay is playing with her feeling and confesses her father that Abhay is a cheater. Abhay tries to convince them but they do not listen. Day 3 of the challenge, Sarangi takes over the body of Bob's wife and ask Abhay to take her to a place where her mother could be.
