No one can deny that MC Sher (Siddhant Chaturvedi) is definitely the kind of friend we all want in our life. The perfect friend who not only guides us, but also doesn’t let jealousy or competitiveness get in the way of friendship. After Murad (Ranveer Singh) fails at an instant rap battle, the kind and supportive McSher encourages him to fight for his dreams!

How Ram Shankar Nikumbh (Aamir Khan), through his kindness and support, helps a struggling child, Ishaan, to overcome dyslexia, shows the kind of teachers we need. He not only makes Ishaan’s parents see their son’s potential, but also helps him to build self-confidence.
