The camera cuts to Sushant’s face as he sits there with a look on confusion in his eyes. It’s only then that we realize, the choice he must make is not between the beautiful women from different parts of the world, but the new range of exotic pizzas from the Flavors of the world pizza festival. As we see each pizza looking equally delicious and irresistible, the song tells us “hoga har bar, naye wale se pyar!”
