Ritu Arya and Priya Kansara play the sisters Lena and Ria Khan, but when Lena accuses Ria of meddling in her relationships — particularly her newly announced engagement — the argument can only be resolved through a good, old-fashioned brawl. “Khan vs. Khan,” bold yellow letters declare in Street Fighter fashion as the two sisters start begind fighting in their bedroom. “I told you to piss off,” Lena tells Ria, as she rhythmically bashes her head against a framed photo of the two of them. As the sisters fight upstairs, we cut to their parents looking quizzically at the ceiling.
Despite what the clip might suggest, Lena and Ria actually love each other deeply. The real reason behind Ria’s anger is that Lena has agreed to an arranged marriage with someone she doesn’t even know, and Ria worries she has thrown her life away. Lena was, after all, the only person who supported Ria in her dream of becoming a stunt woman. And now, she’s giving up on her own dreams of becoming an artist in favor of settling down and resigning herself to what society expects of young women like her. Ria isn’t having it.
