I, Me aur Main (English: I, Me and Myself) is a Bollywood romance drama film directed by debut film director Kapil Sharma. It features John Abraham, Prachi Desai and Chitrangada Singh in lead roles. It was released on 1 March 2013 and flopped at the box office.
Ishaan (John Abraham) a charismatic, good-looking music producer from Mumbai, lives a sheltered existence as the apple of his mother's (Zarina Wahab) eye, always protected by his elder sister Shivani (Mini Mathur). He stays at his girlfriend Anushka's (Chitrangda Singh) house and takes them all for granted. One day Anushka sends him out of her house due to his irresponsibility about their marriage.
His new neighbour Gauri (Prachi Desai) comes into his life, and he begins to fall in love with her. Ishaan is forced out of his company, and Gauri encourages him to start his own music company. While Ishaan is working on his music, Anushka is pregnant with his child but decides not to tell him due to him being irresponsible. Gauri gets a scholarship to Paris, and Ishaan and Gauri decide to live there after his big launch.
On the day of the launch, Anushka starts having contractions and Ishaan, realizing his responsibilities, takes Anushka to the hospital where they have a baby girl. Gauri leaves for Paris understanding what is happening. Eight months later, Ishaan and his baby girl Diya are talking to Gauri who is returning soon, while Anushska is happily married to another guy.

I, Me aur Main received mixed reviews from critics. Alisha Coelho of in.com gave 3.5 stars out of 5 and said that the movie was "proof that a movie with John Abraham as the lead can be your time and money's worth and that Bollywood can (if it tried) make love stories that don't defy common sense and good taste." Nishi Tiwari for Rediff.com has given 2/5 stars and says I, Me Aur Main has its moments but falters badly with its plot.
I, Me, Aur Main opened to poor collections. The film had little growth on the weekend, but the collections were still low and was eventually declared a flop.
