Heroines in Bollywood can share open media in-genuine smiles, but can never be friends; this is a very old saying. Women in general, are always at competition with each other, and when two ladies are in the same profession and holds similar grandeur and celebration, then they will be psychologically conditioned to fight for the top position; to prove who is the best among them, hence they can never be friends. Traditionally, this has come down to be quite true. Rekha and Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan have been logger heads with each other, in spite of their great screen sharing in epics like Silsila, professional or personal life.
We aren’t unaware of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle tiffs, where Lata ji never allowed any growing singer to make a place in Bollywood when she was the reigning singer; Asha ji became a star though, because she was the sister of the former, but a subdued competition remained.
Later in the century we have come across gross statements by leading ladies of Bollywood, when Kareena Kapoor Khan called Bengal beauty Bipasha Basu ‘Kali Billi’ referring to her dusky complexion, and this created a huge controversy for the portrayal of racism, and Rani Mukherjee showed her disregard for Preity Zinta because ‘she spoke too much’.
However, time brings progression is proving to be true. These days, news do not always erupt out of controversy, but spread of love and compassion too. We want peace around us. And we have some iconic besties pairs in Bollywood these days who can break the stigma of this myth, that ‘two leading ladies can never be friends’.
5 such pairs who will change the environment of relationships in Bollywood.
Sonam and Jacqeline
Sonam Kapoor and Jacqeline Fernandes have never shared screen space together, however, we are completely aware of their BFF pairing and that they make up a lovely couple together, wherever they go. Award ceremonies and other social events are ignited with positivity by their smiles. Sonam’s lovely message on Jacqeline’s birthday was an inspiration for their Instagram fans-
“Happy happy birthday my stunning friend @jacquelinejf2 you bring light to all our lives. Love you a lot and miss you.. Wish we could have celebrated the fantastic existence of Jacqueline Fernandez together!! ❤️❤️❤️always!!”
Priyanka and Kangana
None of us have been able to forget the two diva’s unusual friendship and chemistry in Fashion, but hardly we knew that these two leading ladies will make the companionship a reality. It is a motivation to find one reigning queen celebrating the success of another, who is officially titled the ‘Queen of Bollywood’ with the National award conferred. Congrats, Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut! Keep up the power and spirit of your friendship and positivity in this bad Man’s world.
Kareena and Amrita
Probably, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora will be the iconic besties ever in Bollywood, who have always been with each other through thick and thins. Taste of success has not affected their relationship or personal life.
Kalki and Huma
Both the gorgeous beauties and power houses of talent are foundations by director/producer Anurag Kashyap, and both have been friends since the time they did Ek Thi Daayan. The two have been seen together always, happy and bouncy. Even when Human Qureshi was being linked for the divorce conflicts between Kalki Koechlin and Anurag Kashyap, the two ladies of artistic cinema remained friends as always, and Kalki came in protest- “Jesus Christ can we please leave Huma alone?! My problems with Anurag have nothing to do with her!”
Priyanka and Deepika
Probably one of the most unusual friendships in B-Town, where both are the names marked for the uno spot. Their closeness started with Koffee with Karan episode and continued to feature in ‘Pinga’ for Bajirao Mastaani. Their glorifying pictures will speak their minds.
Actresses are human beings, and when like minds meet, they share a lot of lovely time and leave a mark of their positivity in the environment. It has nothing to do with success or position. Love is all about compassion and understanding. There is no competition in a relationship, and these powerful ladies have proven it. Hope to see more such pairs breaking the stigma of ‘Unfriendly’ for Bollywood beauties.
