Krishna is a bundle of contradictions. We see her as a woman madly in love. We see her as an object of desire. We see her as a vision of purity. We see her engaging herself in a lustful bout with another man. (Photo: NDTV)

He is a bit of an odd cookie in the world of crime. Sure, he has a sharp mind and body and has been toughened up over the years living in the world of guns and gangsters; yet, he is very emotional and tender at the core. (Photo: NDTV)

Arshad Warsi plays Babban, who is in more ways than one, the antithesis of the kind of man his uncle is. If Khalujan is all heart and soul, Babban is all flesh and blood. He is hot-blooded, lustful and scoffs at the idea of true romantic love. (Photo: NDTV)

It makes the dormant softer side of him come alive. Perhaps for the first time in his life, Babban cares...for Krishna. (Photo: NDTV)
