At Friendships’ Day, we take a look at some of the most popular pals in Bollywood

“I believe actors can never be friends,” stated Karan Johar once on the popular dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.


But stars like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have clearly gone ahead to prove him wrong with their “bromantic” moments. Here’s a dekko at the most popular pals in Bollywood:

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor

Jab they met: The two hunks met during the shoot of their film Gunday.

Friendship factor: The two apparently bonded at a party over dancing and shared their liking for old Anil Kapoor songs. The two Gundas often have a gala time doing the signature style Govinda steps as well. What makes their friendship more evident is their showcase of PDA moments!

Yeh dosti…nahin todenge? Deepika Padukone is a common thread between the two lads. Where dippy is Ranveer’s rumoured love interest, she will be seen playing Arjun’s ladylove in Finding Fanny. We believe the beauty might be the glue that would stick Arjun and Ranveer forever. After all it’s “bros before…” well you know the saying.

Sonam Kapoor- Jacqueline Fernandez

Jab they met: The two beauties met during Jacqueline Fernandez’ shooting with Anil Kapoor in Race 2 and reportedly got along like a house on fire!

Friendship factor: Both Jacqueline and Sonam are awestruck by Salman Khan! Where Jacqueline Fernandez was seen sharing screen space with the superstar in Kick, Sonam Kapoor will be seen with him in Suraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo.

Yeh dosti…nahin todenge? Though both the stars share a special bond, B-town, nonetheless, is a vicious world. With Sonam and Jacqueline being leading Fashionistas on the block, we believe the two will have a red carpet showdown very soon!

Sidharth Malhotra-Varun Dhawan

 Jab they met: They both met at the sets of Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan where the two worked as his assistant directors.

Friendship factor: Alia Bhatt keeps the two bros glued. Both the lads have worked with the hottie in Student Of The Year and share a close friendship with her. The trio is often spotted hanging out together.

Yeh dosti…nahin todenge? The actors apparently had a fall out at Karan Johar’s party, following a heated argument. No surprises there, given the competition the two lads face with each other in the industry. If both the celebs continue having words, Alia would have to play the devil’s advocate and that won’t be pretty to watch! What say?

Deepika Padukone-Priyanka Chopra

Jab they met: Both the hotties have apparently known each other before entering the industry and have shared a close bond ever since.

Friendship factor: The B-town queens are close to the king of Bollywood, Mr Shah Rukh Khan. Apart from the Happy New Year actor, the divas have another factor in common which they like to bond over; their hush-hush relationships. Where Priyanka has forever maintained her silence on her affair with Shahid Kapoor, Dippy floats in the same boat by keeping mum about loverboy Ranveer. Well aren’t the two pretty little liars or what!

Yeh dosti…nahin todenge? PeeCee and Dippy have been cast for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. Uh oh. We believe the gal pals wouldn’t stay besties for long, given their next major motion venture. The two might just be caught up with their “mein heroine hoon” hoopla. Don’t believe us? Look at what happened with Rani Mukerji-Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra.

Salman Khan-Aamir Khan

Jab they met: The two Khans met on the sets of their iconic comedy film Andaaz Apna Apna

Friendship factor: Apart from the fact that the two superstars have been close friends since years, the Khan duo is incomplete without a third one; Shah Rukh Khan. We believe Aamir and Salman have certainly bonded over their “issues” with SRK. Well all is well between Salman and Shah Rukh now, courtesy their warm hug at Baba Siddique’s Iftar party. We wonder if Aamir will pull off a similar stint with him soon…

Yeh dosti…nahin todenge? We believe this Andaz Apna Apna jodi will remain BFFs, given their iconic friendship since several years. They certainly make the Jai and Veeru of B-town with no Basantis or Gabbars to end their friendship saga!

The other popular celeb friendships on the block are Alia Bhatt-Parineeti Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan-Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan-Amrita Arora and Ranbir Kapoor- Ayan Mukerji. View pics to get a sneak peak at their bestie moments!
