Bollywood is a funny world. Relationships and equations change every Friday, and more often than not, we hear about fallouts between actors and people from the industry. But despite all of this, we also hear of some strong, long-lasting friendships that’ve stood the test of time. Remember when Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan had a rather public fight but soon mended things to go back to being the BFFs they were?
Shahid Kapoor is known to be quite an introvert and keeps to his set of close friends. In a recent chat with Hindustan Times, Shahid was asked if he he had made any true friends during the span of his career, to which he said,
I have some good friends in the industry. True friends or not that you get to know only by the end of your life. After 20 or 25 years, if there are people who still stand by your side then you know they are true, otherwise, they were good friends. Good friends come and go in life; one should be open to that. Every relationship starts somewhere and ends somewhere. And it might be beautiful while it lasted. I have good friends in the industry, but there are few friends, about three to four of them, with whom I might spend my entire life.
He then added that he doesn’t understand how people have the time to invest in making so many ‘true friends’.
I would think so. I don’t know how people get the time to make so many true friends. It takes so much time in understanding each other and investing even in those three to four people. I feel aise do teen log hee mil jaaye, jinke saath aap puri zindagi nikaal lo, toh wohi badi baat hai (If you find two to three people with whom you can share your life, itself is a big deal). Baaki good friends hote hai or friends in happy times or acquaintances hote hai (rest are friends in happy times or acquaintances).
Hmm… I can’t help but agree with this one! It takes a lot of time to make ‘good friends’.
