Triloki is trapped in the centre of the earth under various layers, surrounded by molten lava. He wants to rule the world but the only way he can do so is by reclaiming the MANI, which is the ultimate source of energy available in the world. So to procure the MANI, Triloki sends his super villains Vishkanya, played by the svelte Reshmi Ghosh, Challa played by the popular Mishal Raheja and Kumbha played by acclaimed actor Deepak Bhatia amongst others to defeat the protector Aryan.
