Friendship day is celebrated across the world to cherish the most special bond of all, the only relation that we get to choose for ourselves- our friends. This day is a tribute to the special bond of companionship which is celebrated by exchange of gifts, flowers, friendship bands and greeting cards.

Today on friendship day, let's find out what significance does this day hold for our favourite TV stars...

Shaan who is seen as a coach in The Voice India Kids:

I truly believe that friends are one's extended family. I have a lot of friends who make my life beautiful with their presence and bring a smile on my face when I am distraught. I have a lot of friends from the industry so naming only one would be unfair. I would like to wish all my fans a Happy Friendship day.  

Shefali Sharma seen as Vijaya from Tere Bin:

According to me, friendship means a beautiful bond between people that is not defined by expectations. Friendship is the most important thing in life to me, right now. It makes life so much more meaningful and more enjoyable. My best friend from the industry is Adhvik Mahajan who played my husband in my earlier show Bani-Ishq da Kalma. This friendships day I would be shooting for my show "Tere Bin" so I will miss meeting my friends. I hope I pack up early and catch up with them.

Ratan Rajpoot seen as Santoshi in from Santoshi Maa:

Back in school, we used to celebrate  friendship day by tying friendship bands. The multi-colored band and the best one used to be reserved for my best friend. Nowadays I don't get time to go and actually meet them but I believe it's a day to remember the friends who have helped you when you needed them and love you just the way you are. I take time to understand people, but now I can comfortably say that my co-star from my show 'Santoshi Maa' Ayaz Ahmed is a good friend of mine.

Akshay Dogra seen as Jagan from Waaris:

A day for friendship?? That's it? Being in Mumbai, away from family, your friends become your family. I've been lucky to have so many people in my life, whom I can call 'my best friends'. Although, Barun Sobti is on the top of my list, but Sanaya Irani, Mohit Sehgal, Daljeet Kaur, Abhaas Mehta (honestly, it goes on) are definitely in there as well. Personally, I wouldn't want to choose between them. I'm greedy like that. Interestingly, my character Jagan is seen fighting with Aarti Singh in my show 'Waaris' whereas in real we get along very well and are good friends.

Neeti Mohan who is seen as a coach in The Voice India Kids:

Every day is a friendships day for my good friends. I have a lot of friends who have guided me, given me honest feedback and stood through thick and thin. My best friend from the industry is Harshdeep Kaur. I have been with her through the phase of being a bachelorette to a married woman. I had the best time with her when I went for her wedding in Delhi for four days. I had organized her sangeet party. We sang, danced and had a lot of fun. Before we used to hang out together, now that she is married I go out with her and her husband. As she lives close to my home, I walk to her home and we have ice creams at night or have a chai party. I love pampering my friends so sometimes I send flowers or gifts.

Shubangi Atre seen as Angoori bhabi in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai:

I can say that I am blessed to have a lot of friends in my life who have guided me, helped me become the person that I am today. Even in my show 'Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai', I am surrounded with great people like Asif ji, Saumya and Rohit ji who have become good friends with me over time and I can call them even at 2 am in the night. I always would wish great things for them as they would for me. 

Khushboo Tawde seen as Dr. Nandini from Tere Bin:

I believe that having a true friend is a blessing. They know how crazy you are but still choose to be with you always. My best friend from the industry is Gauri Nalawade, who acts in Marathi serials.

Vishal Vashishth seen as Sagar in Gangaa:

I have friends who have been with me since the past 15-16 years and back in school, we used to celebrate friendship day in a big way. We all used to assemble in one friend's house like a ritual, one by one tie friendship band, it used to be really funny. Family is always there was us but friends are those who really stand by you and my friends are like my family. They have always supported me till date and never fail to understand me and I believe they are the best gift one can get. I don't have one best friend in the industry but Aneri Vajani and Hiba Nawab are my good friends with whom I did my first show on TV. Because I am shooting continuously, over time, Aditi Sharma from my show 'Gangaa' has also become a good friend.

Aarti Singh seen as Amba in Waaris:

Friends are the most important part of life. My friends are like my family. And touch wood my all friends are very good human beings. I believe If you are surrounded by good people you tend to make lesser mistakes. My best friend is Mahhi Vij from the industry and I have a childhood friend Sneha from Lucknow who is also one of my very close friends. Because we spend so much time on set, your co-stars become your friends ultimately. So, my good friend from my show 'Waaris' would be Akshay Dogra.

Saumya Tandon seen as Anita bhabhi in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai:

I made my best friend my life partner and I hope this friendship of ours will survive all ups and downs in our relationship. I value Friendship a lot. In any relationship if you are friends the relation lasts longer is happier and healthier be it with your partner, mother, father or sister.

India-Forums wishes a very Happy Friendship Day to all its readers!
