You need to make a backup before you alter anything. To be honest, you should just apologize to your buyer and cancel this order. This could take you buyer a lot of time, work, and stress to put right. Personally, I can’t see them being able to trust you going forward.

First, check on CPanel if your client has a scheduled backup of the site.
If there isn’t any you have still some chance to fix the damage.
If you replaced only the php files of the WordPress directory, you have lost only the theme and the site settings (wp-config.php). You should still have the database that contains the actual data of the site. It could also be that the wp-content/uploads directory (with its content) is still there.

It could mean that the theme and possibly some plugings are broken because some files are missing. My suggestion is to download the database, the whole site directory as it is and then investigate locally using xampp. You will need to take a look to the database with phpmyadmin to find out what was the theme and the plugins in use and so on. Inform the buyer.

We all make mistakes, @parthjuneja - take a breath, focus - and fix this. Only customer service can help you. Get their details, call them, ask them to roll the site back. They won’t even be surprised.
