Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai

Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai (transl. It's my friend's wedding) is a 2002 Indian Hindi-language romantic drama film directed by Sanjay Gadhvi and produced by Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films. The film starred Uday Chopra, Jimmy Sheirgill, Bipasha Basu and Tulip Joshi. The film was said to be partly inspired by My Best Friend's Wedding (1997).[3] 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. The film did good business at the box office and was declared "Hit". The film was officially offered to Amisha Patel, however the actress refused to do the film because she did not want to work with less successful actors in the beginning of her career after starring in back to back blockbuster movies. Surprised and shocked by Amisha's attitude, Yash Raj banner decided not to work with her in any of the films produced under their banner.[4]
