Champak Chaturved (Paresh Rawal) has a theatre group in India and he performs shows all over the country. Bunty (Akshay) and Babla (Govinda) along with others are actors in the group. Both are very naughty natured guys who never miss any chance to flirt with girls, even the girls in the group. At the completion of one show, an organizer offers Champak's group to perform 30 shows in England. They all get very excited but as per the contract they need to leave for England on the same day. Unfortunately the heroine of the play opts out due to Bunty's misbehavior.
They reach London and through Rajpal Yadav, a taxi driver, Babla and Bunty try to find out a girl for their play but it leads to many misunderstandings and a series of funny sequences. In this process, Babla and Bunty fall into trouble involving a drug baron and other mishaps.
Thereafter, the trio discovers a girl Lara Dutta, who suffers from amnesia to act in their drama and just as Bunty and Lara fall in love, her memory returns and it brings chaos into their lives, including a murdered husband!
From here the story leads to its climax in which a major conspiracy gets exposed.
