Friends play an essential role in our lives, and the bond of friendship is cherished throughout the years, regardless of age. On this Friendship Day, &TV artists come together to celebrate their enduring friendships with a heartfelt toast. These include Geetanjali Mishra (Rajesh, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan), Neha Joshi (Yashoda, Doosri Maa), and Vidisha Srivastava (Anita Bhabi, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai). Geetanjali Mishra, the new Rajesh in Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, shares, “On Friendship Day, I want to dedicate my gratitude to my buddy Vineet Chaturvedi. He’s not just my best friend but also my manager, and I can confidently say he’s the only person who can inspire me to do anything without hesitation. He has constantly supported me, brightening my toughest days and making my happiest moments even brighter. Our friendship has grown stronger over time, and I appreciate how he respects and understands me, never resorting to manipulation like other managers. With his lively presence, I’m never bored, and he’s the one who stays with me through tough times, helping me rise again. Having Vineet in my life makes every day feel like a perpetual “Friendship Day.”
Neha Joshi, aka Yashoda from Doosri Maa, shares, “In 2006, when I moved to Mumbai, fate introduced me to the lovely actress Sarvari Lohokare. We crossed paths while searching for accommodation and became flatmates. Our friendship blossomed, becoming one of the most cherished moments in my life. For three years, we lived together, sharing struggles, joys, and secrets. Despite occasional fights and silent periods, we always resolved our differences. Our connection remains unchanged when we reunite, with endless topics to discuss. I am truly grateful to have her in my life—a very Happy Friendship Day to my dear friends and everyone. I celebrate our friendship on this special day and look forward to creating more beautiful memories together. Happy Friendship Day!”. Vidisha Srivastava, aka Anita Bhabi from Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, shares, “In life, we meet numerous people. Still, some leave a lasting impact, and my dear friend Shilpy is one of those special individuals. Despite my busy shooting schedule, she’s been by my side through thick and thin, and I cherish our close bond. Although I may not speak with her often, she remains understanding and always there when I need her. I value the quality of my friendships over quantity, and Shilpy is a like-minded and trustworthy companion. We’ve created beautiful memories, from taking shortcuts to school, crossing boundaries, and sharing secret crushes to playfully competing for the teachers’ favour. With Shilpy, I’ve learned the true essence of friendship – being honest with each other, which matters the most.”
On this Friendship Day, let’s celebrate the timeless bond of friendship, cherish memories, and raise a toast to lasting camaraderie!
