Story:
Dulha Mil Gaya is a heart warming tale of four individuals each of whom have different takes on relationships in their lives. Donsai (Fardeen Khan), a young commitment phobic debonair, is petrified with the idea of terms like 'marriage' and 'long term relationships'. Samarpreet (Ishita Sharma), a quintessential Punjabi girl, for whom relationships are to be cherished and lived by. Shimmer (Sushmita Sen), a diva from the world of glamour, for whom love and relationships aren't quite half as important in life as independence and 'success' are.
And lastly, Pawan Raj Gandhi (Shahrukh Khan), P.R.G., for short, a suave multi millionaire whose heart still remains larger than his bank balance and for whom winning love is the only victory there is. When paths cross for these four characters, fireworks go off and they not only land up influencing each other with their outlook on relationships but also get influenced themselves and learn a whole new meaning of the term.
