Synopsis of AAJI-AAJOBA:
Akshay and Tanvi live in the city. Their parents are so engrossed in their own lives and careers that they don’t have time for the kids. The lonely children don’t know where to clarify their doubts. One day they come across an elderly couple who not only have the time to listen to them, but also understand their dilemmas. The kids want to take this couple home, but social barriers and rules don’t seem to allow that. The kids however refuse to give up so easily.
