Auro (Amitabh Bachchan) is an intelligent and witty 12-year-old boy with an extremely rare genetic disorder called progeria. Mentally he is twelve and very normal, but physically he looks five times older. In spite of his condition, Auro is a very happy boy. He lives with his mother Vidya (Vidya Balan), who is a gynaecologist. Amol Arte (Abhishek Bachchan) is a young, cold-blooded politician.

He is out to prove to the world that politics is not a bad word. He is a man with a mission. Auro is Amols son; however, Vidya conceals this from him. Amol meets Auro when he visits the boys school as a chief guest. He comes on the occasion of a competition on the visionary of India.

Amol decides Auro as the winner, impressed by the white globe he made. But being with such a big politician Auro was found by the media. The next day the media tries to enter his school. Auro, annoyed at this, sends him an e-mail, which says I hate you. Amol reads it and takes a restraining order from High Court stating that nobody can disturb him without permission.

Auro, relieved, tells him of his desire to visit the presidents house. But due Amols political issues he fails to make it on the decided day. Auro, however, loses confidence in him but later agrees to go to Delhi with him although he now knows that Amol is his father. Though Amol does not know that Auro is his son, he takes him to Delhi to see the presidents house. Auro says that he still needs to forgive Amol for his first mistake (not accepting him) , but he doesnt tell him what it is.

When on his 13 birthday he is in hospital he tells his mistake. Auro, tries to get his mother and father back together, but Vidya resists, still hurt by the fact that Amol wanted her to have an abortion when they first found out she was pregnant. Amol realises his mistake though, and proposes to Vidya, as he is still in love with her. He stays by Auros side when he finds out that Auro is his son. Auros health begins to deteriorate as he reaches his 13th birthday, his physical defects catching up.

However, he is finally able to reunite his mother and father once again as Vidya gives in to her feelings for Amol and her motherly love for Auro.They get married in the hospital a fake one, so they can do the real one later. Auro, succumbing to his disease, says his last words Maa to Vidya and Paa to Amol before dying with a satisfied smile.
