We are all too aware of the popular notion in tinsel town that ‘no two actresses can be friends.’ As over abused as this may be, that never stopped our movie makers from exploring female friendships on the big screen. And we couldn’t have been happier. After all why should boys have all the fun? Enough of your bromances already. Read more
Here’s presenting our top favourite Bollywood movies that celebrate the truly amazing relationship between gal-pals!
*Off to connect with my girl squad right now!
Aisha (Sonam Kapoor) and Pinky (Ira Dubey) may have had their moments of disagreement but they showed us that real friendship is all about loving till the end. And we could relate so much to all their shopping sprees and make up sessions with each other it was beyond aww-dorable!
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Even though Naina (Deepika Padukone) and Aditi (Kalki Koechin) were poles apart in terms of their nature, they chose to stick to each other for a lifetime. As they say, opposites attract! Who knew a spontaneous trip with a bunch of people could give you friends for life.
You have got to agree that Dor showed us the most mature portrayals of a female bond. It subtly taught us that women can be each other’s lighthouse when the patriarchy has joined forces to restrain them. Zeenat and Meera (Gul Panag and Ayesha Takia) left a lingering impression in our hearts and continue to do so years after the movie released.
The camaraderie that Rani (Kangana Ranaut) and Vijaylaxmi (Lisa Haydon) shared in the movie was so heart-warming. When the love of her life left her to fend for herself, Rani found solace in Vijaylaxmi and what developed was the most beautiful friendship EVAAR!
P.S. Thank you ‘Queen’ for giving us Lisa Haydon.
Diana Penty and Deepika Padukone (Meera and Veronica) may have ended up pining for the same guy, but it was endearing to watch their friendship unfold on the big screen. It also conveyed a message that boys may come and go but you got to be there for your pal forever and always.
Veere Di Wedding
This movie showed us that real friends are those who may or may not be present in your happy times but they always have your back. Avni (Sonam Kapoor), Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar), Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and Meera (Shikha Talsania) gave us the feeling that they were family first and friends later. What more could we possibly ask for, if not ‘besties’ like these?
Keep ‘em movies coming Bollywood! We’d love to see more such female bonding on the silver screen!
