Do you know who Deepika Padukone's best pal in Bollywood is? Its none other than Piggy Chops! A few seasons ago it was bonhomie between Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone that was making headlines with both extending solidarity to each other. Deepika made it a point to be present when Chopra's father Dr Ashok Chopra passed away last year. Here are the 'real' best friends of Bollywood whose bond have stood the test of time.
Anyone who has seen photos of actor Kangana Ranaut and model co-star Lisa Haydon at the screening of their film Queen, would imagine them to be the best buds in town. Smiles, bear hugs and warm embraces, a new friendship on the block. Shortly before there was dostana between newbies Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh and the roll-call goes on.
Deepika and Sahana Goswami are friends since the beginning of their careers. They scuba-dive together, hang out and share their innermost secrets. "Sahana Goswami is my best friend. I have always maintained that being in this industry we cannot plan when friends will come in our life and when they will move out. And she, happened to be a co-star in one of my beginner films. And before I knew it, we became good friends; she is the first person I call when I am back in Mumbai," Deepika said in an interview about Shahana.
Koffee with Karan is good for a quick update on the friend list, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan gave us an inkling of new ties, cemented over recent years. Fact is that every season a new friend circle comes into existence. Usually what follows is a strong show of support from all concerned on occasions big and small.
