Relationships form the core of all great stories and it is the intricacies and complexities of these relationships that touch our hearts. Bollywood has been reinventing itself with each passing year and has learned to build emotions based on such relations. The trend of male friendships in films is in use since times immemorial. All the bromance and great male camaraderie are evident in many films.

But what we rarely get to see is the portrayal of female friendships on screen. Well, they might never get along with each other in real life. But then acting is about portraying characters, whatever little resemblance they bear to the actual actors in real life. Let’s just keep aside the Jays and Virus for some time and take a look at these strong female friendships in Bollywood films.
