Middle FINGER

Uday is having a ball of time celebrating his birthday with his friends at a roof top restaurant. He appears more chirpier and self confident than usual, teasing all and to outsiders he may appear as a bit rude and overconfident. A stranger, strangely enough with his hand gloves on, comes to Uday's table and asks for a matchbox to light up his cigarette. Vicky, Udhay's friend gives him match box. Stranger tries to light cigarette with matchbox, but fails, as it would be very difficult to light the cigarette with a matchbox in the heavy wind that was blowing. Uday offers the stranger his lighter and asks him to use the lighter instead of matchbox. Vicky intervenes and asks Uday that how can his lighter withstand the onslaught of the wind . Uday, with some pride, replies that he can light the cigarette with his lighter in a single strike, immaterial of how strong the wind would be. Udhay takes up the challenge and lights the cigarette in a single strike and as an act of vindication, shows his middle finger to his friends and even to the stranger. The stranger feels snubbed big way. Stranger, though not showing on his face, gets deeply hurt, asks Uday whether if he can light up the lighter in a single roll at anytime and anywhere ?. Uday replies that he can. Stranger invites Uday and gang to his apartment near by where, he says, would not be any wind blowing either. Stranger challenges Uday to light up his lighter ten times in ten consecutive rolls, and offers his luxurious BMW sedan as a bet, if he can do it. In return, If he fails, to light up the lighter even once, out of ten consecutive rolls , the stranger would take away his middle finger. Uday and others who are with him get shocked and try to take Uday from there, telling him that he should not fall for his bait and this man definitely is a psychopath, but stranger keeps tempting Uday and finally Uday accepts the challenge. Uday drives everyone in stranger's BMW to stranger's apartment. What might have happened to Uday? Who is this stranger? Does Uday escape? Or stranger makes Uday pay price for showing him his(Uday's) middle finger?
