Shahid Kapoor as Jaidev Vardhan
His peak of conflict - to follow his father's values or GG's vices.
He's Simple and sincere till he falls into GG's trap and his dreams change. Drinking, smoking, gambling…he is sucked into a vortex of vaulting ambition and naked greed.
Bipasha Basu as Natasha
Her peak of deceit - to cast a seductive spell on Jai.
Hopelessly in love with GG, she will do whatever he says. She will bewitch the gullible Jai, knowing well that what she's doing is wrong and will forever put Jai at GG's mercy.
Amrita Rao as Madhavi
Her peak of devotion - to stand by her ideals and the man she loves.
Jai's childhood friend from the ashram tries to warn him but he refuses to listen and she has to watch helplessly as Jai gets tangled more and more in the deadly web spun by GG and Natasha.
How far can greed take a man? Can the 'greens' ever fight the money and might of the builders lobby? Can nature ever win over the bulldozer? These are the riveting issues raised by Shikhar. Pitted against each other in this battle of man v/s nature are two different but equally powerful protagonists.
Gaurav Gupta aka GG (Ajay Devgan) is the man who started with nothing and now believes that only money can fuel his ambitions. While Guruji (Jawed Sheikh), to the manor born, believes that wealth means nothing if not used for society. Caught in the tussle between the two is the unworldly Jaidev Vardhan (Shahid Kapoor), who while respecting his father's philosophy, falls hook, line and sinker for GG's gilt-edged dreams.
While Guruji hopes that Jai will return to his roots, GG uses the glamorous Natasha (Bipasha Basu) to bewitch Jai and the unscrupulous politician Amrit Patil, to exploit the tribal into selling their lands. Madhavi (Amrita Rao) watches the man she loves being carried away in to a world of wine, women and wealth.
If Shikhar is the Pinnacle of good deeds and thoughts, Shikhar is also the height of ambition and greed. Which peak will Jai choose to scale in this battle of man vs. nature?
