Here's the Bollywood movies that redefined friendship and television celebrities who would celebrate friendship day watching them-
Kunal Kulbhushan Jaisingh
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, can be a watch for celebrating friendship day. The movie is all about three friends starring Hrithik Roshanas Arjun, Abhay Deolas Kabir and Farhan Akhtar as Imraan. The story is about how three friends meet for a bachelor trip and the journey changes their lives forever. The story make us miss our friends every time we watch this movie. Even my show Ishqbaaaz is all about 'sibling-friendship' every time we dare to give friendship goal.
For friendship day I would love enjoying either 3 Idiots, The story of Rancho, Raju and Farhan is so touching yet so funny, we can't help but watch this one again and again. The sheer simplicity of their friendship wins our hearts and makes us think of the friends we made in college and that one crazy friend who always thoughtout of the box. Or Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, the story of Kabir's friendship with Aditi and Avi and Naina. The movie shows how one is alone without friends and true happiness can be found only when one's true friends are around.

Cocktail which stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty showcased the friend-zone relationship. The trio gave a lot of friendship goal. And even Queen can be a better watch explaining how friendship is important in life. Kangana and Lisa rocked the screen. Even my last show Swaragini, set friendship goal on small screen.
For friendship day I would love to watch Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, it was an absolute contradiction to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It establishes howpyaarmight succeed dostibut not necessarily. It breaks the stereotype thatladka ladki kabhi dost nahi ban sakte, a refreshing take. Or will be Kangana's Queen, movie about how Rani travels to Paris for her honeymoon after her fiance deserts her and refuses to marry her. She finds a friend in Vijaya who builds her confidence and later in Amsterdam, the coy girl shares a room with three men in a hostel and the friendship she shares with them is liberating for her.
Rang De Basanti, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra succeeded in adapting the story of India's freedom fighters in contemporary time by telling the story of a group of friends who decide to raise their voice for the sake of their friend. They choose to die bravely for their friend which has brought tears in our eyes time and again. It's good to be motivated for doing something great among with your friends and enjoy friendship day.
For friendship day, I promise Akshay Kumar starrer 'Entertainment' would be the best watch. The way friendship between a Dog and Man has been framed is inspiring and amazing. Else as I share a strong friendship with my brother, as was shown in Aamir Khan's Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and if its about Hollywood movie, The Hangover will be the best watch for the celebration of friendship.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, staring Shahrukh Khan, Rani and Kajol is the perfect watch for celebrating friendship day. 'Pyar dosti hai', This movie popularized the ideas of Friendship's day and friendship bands in India. The bro-love between Anjali and Rahul which blossoms into love later tried to express how friendship is the first step towards falling in love. Even my show Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi set many friendship goal on the small screen.
Amar Prem's nok-jhok friendship in Andaz Apna Apna, would be the best watch to celebrate friendship day. We shall always remember how these do mastaane fought and later became amazing friends who helped each other through the difficult times.
