Actresses of this age are going to prove the popular belief that ‘contemporaries cannot be friends’ wrong and how. Bollywood and even Television is filled with blooming friendships of two leading ladies who believe that supporting and motivating each other is the go-to rule while they do indulge in healthy competition.
One such pair of actresses in Telly world is Ulka Gupta and Sumbul Touqeer Khan. The duo bond like a house on fire and it’s heartwarming to see two leading ladies gel along so brilliantly. Both Sumbul and Ulka are quite young and are doing a phenomenal job in their respective shows. India Forums got in touch with Ulka Gupta and asked her about how she grew closer to Sumbul.
Ulka quipped, “We connected well with each other on the integration episode of ‘Banni Chow Home Delivery’ and ‘Imlie’, when it was just about to launch. I had recently come back from Delhi when I visited Imlie's set, and I was under the weather because of travel. They handed me a script and I was a bit nervous because of new actors, different set, and I started fumbling in the first two-three takes. Sumbul made me feel super-comfortable. I saw a friend and a supporter in her. I thought to myself, this girl is such a sweetheart, and Fahmaan was also cool. We started cracking jokes together ever since, and then we met again on the set of 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar'. We totally had the vibe of the girls who are inseparable in class and kept giggling along. We're both tomboyish and naughty, and we can't just sit idle. She has been my confidante and a supportive friend. We usually tend to surprise each other by visiting our respective sets out of the blue”.

She added, “When it's 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar', we know we've got a full day of chaos ahead of us. We try to maintain this friendship. I remember, one we went out and had a blast dancing together because we had the same energy and had memorized the dance steps. That's when I realized that she's my dance-soulmate. I hope this friendship just keeps growing. It's healthy and cute so far, and I really-really love Sumbul!"
No evil eyes on this bond, please!
