Friendship Day: Alia Bhatt and Masaba Gupta

The duo’s friendship seems to have a very strong foundation — a shared passion for fashion. Though they have been friends since childhood, carrying forward their mothers’ friendship, they have remained inseparable after gaining fame as well. Bhatt can often be seen donning Masaba prints and the duo pop up often on each other’s Instagram feed. The BFFs also appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Bride last year, nestled in the backdrop of a jungle. Needless to say, the ladies looked absolutely stunning.

Friendship Day: Janhvi Kapoor and Manish Malhotra

This is again a second generation friendship, with Malhotra and Sridevi being besties before. Not only has Malhotra been hugely supportive of the young debutante, but also traced her special sartorial moments in his Instagram feed. Rarely has the actor made a red carpet appearance without a Manish Malhotra outfit to complement her look.

Rani and Sabyasachi’s friendship goes a long way. The designer was one of the few guests invited to Rani’s wedding with Aditya Chopra and he also designed her bridal outfit, shockingly, in just three hours. Not just that, the designer gifted his first ever designed jewellery to the Hichki actor, leaving her in tears. Rani is often seen wearing Sabya designs.

The Bachchan clan has a special fondness for the designer duo, and from Big B to Shweta Nanda, the family often sports their designs. While one mostly sees Nanda dressed in iconic designs from the label, Amitabh Bachchan has also walked the ramp for the designers.
