“Behen Hogi Teri” means, she must be your sister. This is an Indian Romantic Comedy Film.

However, unfortunately for Gattu beautiful  Binny  is the girl of his dreams.

He is in love with Binny and not in a familial way. He has loved her ever since they were little. He has been after her since then even though she has never reciprocated even in the slightest. She toys with him and his emotions. She knows very well what she is doing to him.

Binny is beautiful, smart, and a very independent girl. So, it’s no wonder that everyone is infatuated by her. Since she is single many guys are wanting to marry her. So, there is a love triangle between her and three guys.

Everyone is looking for a good match and a groom for Binny. All of the eligible bachelors and their families are involved.

Gattu, since he knows Binny so well is entrusted with things to do for Binny. However, these are expected to be done by a male in the family like a brother. Poor Gattu, he views these tasks as a way to please Binny, do things for her. He is ultimately trying to get closer to her by doing these things.
