Bollywood's 10 ingenious ways of stopping a wedding - letting your pet dog loose to claiming you are pregnant with the groom's child
How do you stop a wedding in progress? Ask Bollywood!

The music is playing at 100 decibel and the 'baraat' is going crazy with two uncles intensely in character while doing the serpentine dance. Suddenly shots are fired and before you know the 'daakus' have taken the bride away. That's how Bollywood can effectively stop a wedding in progress. From a jilted lover to the groom's own brother, weddings in Bollywood movies have abruptly been halted for the silliest reasons. While some brides realise they cannot get married in the middle of the 'pheras' because they love their best friend, some others are willingly asked to go and live the life of their dreams by their own 'Babujis'. Here are some unique ways Bollywood has innovated to stop a Bollywood wedding.


‘Main tumhare bacche ki Maa banne wali hoon’: The hero is getting married with his ‘sehra’ in place when his girlfriend from the past arrives at the scene and halts the wedding because, ‘Main tumhare bacche ki Maa banne wali hoon.’

‘I love you, and I found your wedding the best place to ask you out’: The girl is forcefully marrying the boy her parents have chosen for her, when her boyfriend reaches the ceremony and proposes to her. A few punches and a 5-minute-action-scene later, he eventually gets the girl whom he hadn’t been able to get for over 3 years.

‘But, I love your brother’: And then one day, when you’re gearing up for your wedding, you realise your fiancée is actually in love with your brother! The wedding still happens though, only the groom has been replaced.

‘How about, I kill you?’: No chances of getting the girl in this lifetime? That’s okay; let’s just book each other for the next birth by getting rid of you. *Shoots*

‘You’re my best friend since birth. I love you!’: So you’ve known each other for 20 years, but you only realised you actually love your best friend when you’re about to take the ‘pheras’. Stop the wedding right there, and create drama.

You got fooled. The guy who claimed to be your fiancée is not your fiancee, but now you’re in love with him. Enter: real groom. Upset, disheartened, cheated, you decide to marry the real fiancee, but the fake one pops up and suddenly the wedding stops and you’re getting married to the fake one!

In your dreams: Or you could just dream you’ll stop her wedding by landing at the venue and announcing how you slept with her. The girl is immediately labelled ‘kalankini’ and that’s the end of the wedding.

‘Ladka dhokebaaz hai’: Just when everyone’s giggling and grinning with ‘shehnai’ playing in the background, the guy whom the girl ditched arrives with proof that the boy only wants to marry the girl to usurp her father’s property.

Tuffy knows whom you love. Not the groom, not the bride, it is the Tuffy the ‘homely’ dog who decides this wedding needs to stop!

Do the disappearing act: Make a rope out of a white bed sheet, slide down the balcony using it, and elope. ‘OMG, there’s no one in the room!’ That’s the end of the wedding, right there.
