I've applied for opt on OCT 25, 2014. And presently I have an internship till April 2015. Considering all this, would there be a problem for me at the immigration. Please help me out here.

You have not indicated whether or not you have a visa. If you have a visa but you are just worried about Customs, then there really should be no worry. You should have a recently dated letter from your internship supervisor or manager confirming that you are working/interning for them and will have the position until at least April 2015 (as long as long as you have work authorization). You should also remember to check with your DSO to see if you need a new I-20.
If you need to get a visa in India- be careful. It’s harder to prove that you have no immigrant intent once you are done with the studies and are in OPT period. They are more likely to refuse a visa during OPT period than during period of studying.
