If you scanned through celebrity social media recently, you must have come across Sonali Bendre on Instagram and how she celebrated the Friendship Day with her friends Gayatri Oberoi and Sussanne Khan. Suffering from deadly cancer, Sonali is spending all the precious moments of her life with her friends and family and sharing them with her supportive fans.
This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime… basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture… You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan
This got us thinking that who says girls don’t make good friends? Especially the celebrities! They tend to fight, they are catty, they bicker, and they get jealous. But having your girl-friend by your side is the best kind of bonding you can wish for. There are some equations that are so treasured that you can’t in any way misunderstand them.
Celebrities have always been a hot topic to talk about. Be it the waging secret war rumours one hears about them or the unbreakable bonds of celeb BFFs, there are a lot of female celebrities who have no qualms in getting along with each other.
1. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora
Kareena and Amrita, childhood friends, have been BFFs for years. In fact, both of them have gone through a lot together in their careers and personal lives. The two actresses have stuck out for each other at all times. So, all those who say that two women can’t be friends will need to eat their words. Amrita despite being heavily pregnant attended all the functions of her best friend’s marriage. Both of them are often spotted partying together as a gang with their respective elder sisters, Malaika Arora and Karisma Kapoor which makes for a super hot girl gang and the real-life ‘veeres’ of Kareena.
2. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez
They became BFFs in 2008 and have considered each other ‘sisters’ ever since. ‘It’s been the longest [friendship] I think either of us had really. When your life changes and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is different from what other people think your life is. And your life is commented on and your life is written about and it’s fictionalized and all that. Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we’ve gone through. Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships.’ This statement by Taylor says it all.
3. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Jacqueline Fernandez
The bonding of these two actresses is not much known to the world. ‘Jack’ and ‘Sones’ as they often refer each other, are spotted hanging out and partying together. Needless to say, the hottest BFFs in B-town also exchange fitness and styling tips, probably because they both have been the fashion icons in the industry. Be it when Sonam was admitted for swine flu back in 2015 or after Jacqueline’s wardrobe malfunction on red carpet, both the divas rushed to be there for each other.
4. Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston
We were heartbroken when Friends ended, but a single solace is to know Rachel and Monica have been besties even today since they first met on the set of their hit TV series over 20 years ago. Jen is named Courtney’s child’s Godmother and Courtney was Jen’s Maid of Honour. For better or for worse, the duo is there for each other through thick and thin, be it their dinner parties, lunch dates, guest-room sleepovers, celebrations or private catch-ups. Well, now, that’s what friends are for.
In the famous movie Queen when Vijaylaxmi (Lisa Haydon) says ‘Vijay nahi to kya hua, Vijaylaxmi to hai’ is the moment when we, along with Rani (Kangana Ranaut), realized that men may come and go but girlfriends are forever. So all those who say that no two women can be friends, it is time to have a double take.
