Many years later their paths cross once again when Barfi, now in love with Jhilmil, is on the run from the police. Barfi is desperately seeking Jhilmil, who has gone missing. Shruti's realization that Jhilmil is mentally-challenged makes her recognize that true love is really blind.

A heart-warming tale of selfless love and about finding happiness in the smallest things in life; that tells you no matter how tough your life may be, 'Don't Worry. Be Barfi!'
