Bachpan Ki Mitrata Sabse Bemisaal!
Friends are an integral part of our lives, and friendship is a bond that people cherish forever, no matter how old they get. On this Friendship Day, &TV artists talk about their childhood friends who are still their best buddies. These include Mouli Ganguly (Mahasati Anusuya, Baal Shiv), Kamna Pathak (Rajesh Singh, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan), and Vidisha Srivastava (Anita Bhabi, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai).
Mouli Ganguly, Mahasati Anusuya in &TV’s Baal Shiv, shares, “This friendship day is dedicated to my buddy Rinku, who has been my closest friend since kindergarten. We have an unbreakable link, and I cannot picture life without her. Although she is now married and lives in Cuttack, we remain in contact and frequently speak over the phone and video calls. I have some crazy memories with her, like I remember how during our school times we used to walk home from school in the rain together. We loved splashing through flooded streets and arriving home late, covered in mud. We used to purposefully choose the longer route and then go back, pretending we had forgotten something. We used to share all our secrets, and nothing has changed till now. I am grateful to have her in my life. A very happy friendship day to my dear friend and everyone out here”.
Kamna Pathak, Rajesh in &TV’s Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, shares, “My childhood friend who is still the closest to me is Komal. She resides in Indore, which is also my hometown. Due to my hectic shooting schedule, I hardly get a chance to speak with or keep a check on her, but I make sure to stay in touch and do everything possible to make me feel good. For instance, she always bakes and sends me my favourite brownie cake on my birthday. She has always supported me greatly, brightened my dullest days and toughest times, and made my liveliest moments even happier and brighter. I remember each moment of our life and how we enjoyed Indore’s street food at Sarafa Bazar. She is so lively that one can never get bored around her. She is my most wonderful friend. I find it hard to find someone who will stay with you in your hard times and help you rise again after falling. Fortunately for me, I have Komal, who makes me feel like every day is a “Friendship Day”..”
Vidisha Srivastava, Anita Bhabi in &TV’s Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, shares, “You meet many people along the way of life. Still, only some stay with you forever, and my friend Shilpy is the one. She is one of my closest friends who has always stayed by my side through thick and thin. Shilpy knows I do not have too many friends, but those I do have are like-minded and trustworthy. Shilpy is my partner in crime. She is non-judgmental and my stress buster. It is hard to imagine my life without her. I have made beautiful memories with her, like taking shortcuts to reach school, which included crossing a big boundary wall, bunking classes together, passing letters to each other’s crushes, fighting over being the teachers’ favourite, and many more. “I realised being with her that true friendship means being honest with each other, and this matters the most.”
