Kareena Kapoor to Taylor Swift These Celebrity Friendships Have Stood the Test of Time

#BFFGoals: This is how you stick together through thick and thin! 

Very often, when it comes to the two biggest entertainment industries all we hear about is what the rumour mill churns out. Scandals, breakups, who has a beef with whom. And while Hollywood and Bollywood drama and gossip is a guilty pleasure for a lot of us, there comes a time when we need to also celebrate and get inspired by the positive aspects of it all. Their friendships and the bonds they’ve nurtured over the years, for instance.

From Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow’s (literally) internet-breaking friendship to Helen, Waheeda Rehman and Asha Parekh’s adorable girl gang, the women on this list have shown us the beauty of female friendships time and time again. They are the only BFF goals you will need this friendships day!

Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow

What is a list of celebrity friendships without Jennifer, Courtney and Lisa? It’s incomplete. This trio has been giving us BFF goals since 1994 and we’re still as invested in their adorable friendship as we were all those years ago.

Just a few days ago, Jennifer and Courtney put up Instagram stories to wish Lisa a happy 59th birthday. While Courtney put up a video of herself and Lisa with the text “"Happy Birthday loot. You make everything better. And funnier!” Jennifer put up a series of images on her Instagram including a gif of their two characters jumping up and down in FRIENDS.

Their real-life equation is so similar to their FRIENDS characters, it’s heart-warming.

Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Arora, Karisma Kapoor and Malaika Arora

From brunch in London to video call nap dates (as Kareena rightly put it- “friends who nap together, stay forever”), this girl gang has been showing us how female friendships can enrich your life in every way. It’s more than shoes and boys. It’s about seeing each other through career highs and lows, marriage, motherhood and every other curveball the universe throughs at you. These women are each other’s support system and it shows!

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez

In 2008, Taylor and Selena found friendship in a hopeless situation (while they were both dating a Jonas brother). A few years ago, in an interview with KIIS FM UK, Selena said, "It was the best thing we got out of those relationships." Since then these two have shown up for each other time and time again. Be it heartbreaks or global scandals, these BFFs truly are ride-or-die for each other. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what friendship is all about?

Alia Bhatt and Akanksha Ranjan

Your quintessential ‘chudi buddies’, Alia and Akanksha met when they were just ‘days old’. A few years ago, the two made a ‘how well do you know your BFF’ video for Alia’s YouTube channel which showed just how adorable the two are. More recently, we saw just how relatable this BFF duo is when Akanksha shared images of herself weeping at Alia’s Mehendi

ceremony. Let’s be honest, are you BFFs if you don’t cry when your best friend is getting married?

Helen, Waheeda Rehman and Asha Parekh

Helen, Waheeda Rehman and Asha Parekh are the BFF trio we’d want to travel with. From Turkey to the Andaman Nicobar islands, these three veteran actors are showing us what a girl-gang vacation is supposed to look like. They are, in all senses of the term, goals!
