The biggest 'shaadi' superhit till date, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi is best remembered for three very good looking actors coming together for a celebratory affair.

Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra laughed, danced, pulled each other's leg and generally had a lot of fun in this David Dhawan film.

Mujhse Shaadi Karogi was an enjoyable 'shaadi' entertainer, without getting into the Barjatya mode.

Box office collections: Rs 30 crore
