WHEN HUMAIRA “HANI” KHAN comes out to her friends as bisexual, they immediately doubt her. Apparently, she can’t be bi if she’s only dated guys. Cornered into proving her sexuality, she tells them she’s dating someone — Ishita “Ishu” Dey, the straight A student who seems more concerned with studying than relationships.
When Hani approaches Ishu about fake ating, she agrees on one condition — that Hani help her become more popular so she can win the school’s Head Girl election. It’s the perfect plan to help them achieve their goals, until Hani’s friends become jealous that she’s spending more time with Ishu. They’ll do everything they can to drive a wedge between them and ruin Ishu’s chances of becoming Head Girl.
Now, Hani has a decision to make: Does she break off her relationship with Ishu for the sake of her friends? Or does she tell Ishu how she really feels and turn their “fake” relationship into something real?
