Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai (Hindi: मेरे यार की शादी है, English: My Friend is Getting Married) is a 2002 Indian Bollywood film directed by Sanjay Gadhvi and produced by Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films. The film starred Uday Chopra, Jimmy Shergill, Bipasha Basu and Tulip Joshi. The film was said to be partly inspired by My Best Friend's Wedding (1997).[1] The director Gadhvi, however, claims that he mainly drew from earlier Hindi films and that My Best Friend's Wedding only provided less than 1% of the inspiration for his film.[2]It was declared a "semi-hit" by Box Office India.

Jealous and frustrated Sanjay makes his way to Anjali with one intention - to stop her marriage.

Sanjay goes to Anjali's home and soon meets her groom- Rohit Khanna (Jimmy Shergill). Sanjay then begins to scheme. He organises a bachelor party for Rohit and all the men in the family. Rohit ends up completely drunk. He picks up on the fact that Sanjay is out to stop his marriage and vows to make sure that Sanjay fails in this.
