Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots

When old college friends show up at one’s wedding, it is generally to add to the merriment of the bride and groom, but that was not the case with Priya’s (Kareena Kapoor) wedding from 3 Idiots. Her two old friends showed up at her wedding, dressed as her groom, and convinced her that her old flame might still be burning for her, and runs away with her right in the middle of the wedding. Priya running away from her wedding with the help of Farhan (R Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi) probably is one of the funniest runaway bride scenes in Bollywood.
