Intelligence officers listening in on the Goldman's conversation report it to the Research and Analysis Wing director Ashwini Rao (Naseer), who in turn gets the implicit approval of the PMO for a covert operation on enemy soil.The wedding is being organised at Karachi's Baituz Zahab hotel, with the full participation of ISI officers and a Pakistani general (K.K. Raina) and who feels that Iqbal (Rishi Kapoor) will be targeted and should avoid attending the wedding. But Iqbal is adamant, and his nephew approves.
