These friends are the ones who come to our rescue when we are in dire need of them and they make sure they stick by our side when we need them.
Bollywood is a massive industry with raging dynamics between people. Everyone pretends to love every second person they meet and be friends with them but in reality, we know whose bond is tight and who would end up in a fight!
