Audio/Video Mismatch
In the last scene Akshay's lips are not matching the words he is heard saying.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Katrina visits the second prospective groom in India, in her last dialogue her lips do not match when she says "I like him, I like him".

Character Error
When Akshaya Kumar, speaking in Hindi, says "Teen Hazaar Panchson" magazines, Katrina Kaif wrongly translates it to "Thirty Five Thousand" instead of "Three Thousand Five Hundred" in English.

Character Error
When Charlie and Jazz are at the altar the priest says, "Do you Jasmeet Singh take Charles Brown to be your lawfully wedded husband" when Jazz's surname is Malhotra.

When you first see Akshay Kumar riding down the dirt road on his motorbike, he has iPod earphones in his ears. In the next scene of him stopping his bike and approaching the car, the earphones have disappeared, as well as the sight of any iPod or mp3 player.

In the scene where Jasmeet is changing clothes inside the cab, she tells the cab driver to stop staring at her. In that shot she has her hair down. However, in the next shot when Jasmeet tells the driver to pay attention to driving, her hair is again tied back, while in the next shot after that her hair is down again.

In the disco where Jasmeet and her friends are partying, she goes to the entrance and splashes her martini on Charlie. Yet in the next shot Charlie's face as well as clothes show no signs of being wet.

In the first scene where Katrina meets Ritesh her hair is styled in a straight fashion, yet in the next shot in the cab her curls are back.

In the scene where ghee is being rubbed into Katrina's mother's hair, the pallu on the old lady's head keeps shifting between shots.
A scene was shot where Katrina Kaif wears a short skirt in a mosque, but it was removed for religious reasons.

The film is based on real events from the life of one of Akshay Kumar's friends.
