Having a best friend is very important.
And when it comes to Bollywood, an industry that is known for temporary relationships, there are few exceptions who have actually stood by each other through thick and thin. They have either been friends since forever or have actually mended broken bonds
Let me ask you, do you know who is Deepika Padukone's confidante? Who is the one Salman Khan shares all his secrets with? Who makes Shah Rukh Khan happy or who is Jacqueline Fernandez's best pal in B-town?
Well, here is the rundown of such genuine closest companions of Bollywood who have stood the trial of time and give friendship goals to their fans.
Alia Bhatt's Instagram profile is flooded with photographs of her with best friend Akansha Ranjan Kapoor.
You will be surprised to know that while Alia Bhatt was busy shooting for Badrinath Ki Dulhania, she flew to Spain for a day just to give Akansha Ranjan Kapoor a birthday surprise.
Juhi Chawla and Shah Rukh Khan's friendship goes way back to when they worked together in numerous films. However, in a conversation with Hindustan Times, Juhi Chawla revealed that it was during the shoot of Duplicate that she got close to SRK.
"I lost my mother while shooting for Duplicate. I went through the mourning period, but then I realised that the only way to come back to life was to go back to work and I did go back for Duplicate and Yes Boss-both were with Shah Rukh."
"Soon, I would look forward to the day because I knew I'd see him (SRK) there, and somehow he'll be fun and I'll forget for that while what has happened and be okay with it as a bad dream."
Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan have been the talk of the town for days now. You must have observed that they are often clicked at different parties together.
Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Arora have been best friends for years now. They stood by each other through thick and thin. Recently, the duo was captured partying with their girl gang in Goa on the occasion of Amrita Rao's birthday.
Actors Shahana Goswami and Deepika Padukone's friendship was once the talk of the town when they worked together in the movie Break Ke Baad. But things turned sour when they got busy with their schedules. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Shahana said that they will surely "pick it from where they had left," if and when they meet.
When it comes to BFF goals in Bollywood, the most popular duo is of Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan. In November last year, Karan Johar tweeted to SRK saying, "Bhai please send us the pictures you took of us in Alibaug!"
Without waiting for too long, Shah Rukh Khan replied that he'll send the images in two days.
Jacqueline Fernandez has always appreciated Sonam Kapoor for her stylish looks. Though this duo is never seen partying together, they share styling tips and that is what bonds them together.
Jacqueline Fernandez also shared a photograph on her social media. She wrote, "Receiving the #stylediva award from @sonamkapoor my #styleicon.."

Arjun revealed, "Neither. My best friend is my stylist and school buddy, Kunal Rawal."
During the trailer launch of Sohail Khan's directorial venture Freaky Ali, Salman Khan finally came clean about his best friends in the industry. According to a report by The Times of India, he said, "Sanjay Dutt, Shah Rukh, Aamir and Katrina are my best friends in the industry".
According to Miss Malini, Ayan Mukerji's chum is none other than Kapoor clan's chirag, Ranbir Kapoor.
He said, "It means that when we worked together in our first film, there was this sort of childishness, and maybe the initial burst of excitement like the beginning of an affair – which is that everything you are doing with the actor feels new, but I think in some way our equation off-screen and even our working relationship is now much deeper."
Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty became best friends when the former made his directional debut with movie Zameen that starred Ajay Devgn. After this, the duo gave many blockbusters like All The Best, Singham series and the fantastic Golmaal series.
