Bollywood Films That Serve Friendship Goals

Friends are the family you choose. As profound as it sounds, it's actually true. A friend is someone who is your biggest cheerleader and most honest critic. Someone who understands your silences and rejoices in your laughter. Bollywood is adept at the portrayal of life-long friendships between characters that have inspired our real-life genuine relationships with our friends over the years. Today we bring you a list of such beautiful Bollywood friendships

2.Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar

Sanju rises to the challenge with commendable bravery and grit, only to bag the first position for a coveted cycling contest. The climax of this movie kept everyone glued to the big screen and how!  

3.Andaz Apna Apna

A modern tale under Farhan Akhtar’s stellar direction, this is the story of friendship between three college students and what happens once they part ways, only to meet again. Bollywood truly defined friendship goals with this one.

6.Rang De Basanti

A story that very poignantly portrays what happens when a group of friends lose one of them to an accident due to corrupt higher authorities. What unfolds in the movie is truly heart-touching to see. A fun-loving and cheerful squad turns sombre but sticks to each other's side, when life throws a challenge.

A fun and witty ride of love and friendship. This movie established the notion of friendship with a modern perspective in our hearts and minds.
