Yaraana is a 1995 Bollywood romantic thriller film directed by David Dhawan and starring Rishi Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Raj Babbar, Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor. It is loosely based on the American film Sleeping with the Enemy, starring Julia Roberts.
Plot: The story centers on Lalita (Madhuri Dixit), a beautiful performer who catches the eye of JB (Raj Babbar). JB is a borderline psychopath who uses his wealth to get Lalita's uncles to consent to their marriage. When Lalita refuses, JB kidnaps her and imprisons her in his house till the wedding. However, she manages to escape by feigning unconsciousness on the day of the wedding.
Lalita runs into Banke (Shakti Kapoor), who is a theater master and starts working with him. Banke's friend Raj (Rishi Kapoor) needs a girl to act as his fake would-be-wife to soothe his grandfather Rai Saheb (Kader Khan), who insists that he settle down soon. Banke sends Lalita to Raj's house where she tells everyone that her name is Shikha. Over time, Raj and Lalita fall in love.
Unfortunately, JB is still looking for Lalita. He finds her blind aunt at a nursing home and kills her when she refuses to reveal Lalita's whereabouts. A chance encounter reveals that Lalita is working with Banke. JB kills Banke and proceeds to Raj's house with Lalita's father. He tells Raj and his grandfather that he is Lalita's husband and that she ran away from him on the day of their wedding. JB and her uncle drag Lalita away. Back at JB's house, Lalita, frustrated and angry at JB, stabs him. Meanwhile, Raj discovers Banke's dead body and realizes that something is amiss. He goes to JB's house just in time to stop a dying JB from killing Lalita. In the ensuing fight, JB is killed. Finally, Raj and Lalita get married.
