On every street, in every home somewhere in India, there is a nobody who wants to be a somebody. Jashn is the story of one such nobody. Akash Verma is a twenty year old Indian lad who thirsts to become a singing icon who can blaze a trail for himself among the galaxy of existing stars. But though he has dreams in his heart he has not been able to find that distinctive voice that he can call his own, that will propel him to the top. Only when he s shattered by life and unflinchingly looks the sordid truth in the face that he is freeloading off his elder sister Nisha, who, in order to offer him a decent life style, has become the mistress of a rich businessman, Aman Bajaj; is he is able to touch his inner core. Call it irony or twist of fate, but the person who sees him through this dark night and mentors him when he s down and out is none other than the sister of the person who he hates most in the world... Aman Bajaj. It is Sara, Aman s sister, who makes him realize that he is a talented man who is just going through a bad phase and that the biggest crime that a human being can commit is to give up on himself. Spurred by life s bitter sweet lessons, and Sara s love and support, Akash, in the harshest winter of his life discovers the invincible summer within himself. And having done so also discovers his own voice. With this very special tune which has been soaked with the passion of his lived life, he not only touches his inexhaustible potential and becomes a star but he also brings dignity to his beleagured sister, humbling his biggest detractor Aman Bajaj and in the process, thereby living up to the faith that Sara had in him all along.
