Played by Kareen Kapoor, Geet in Jab We Met is a firecracker. No doubt that the bubbly and tallkative girl can make you go crazy with her unending blah and blahs, yet having the ‘Bhatinde ki Sikhni’ as your best friend can be awesome. Geet’s character emit unmatchable positivity that can uplift anyone instantly. Even you are sulking into something, she will pull you up from the pit, make you sit in front of her and listen to her non-stop tales. She will teach you how you can fall in love with yourself even when you hate your reflection in the mirror.
2. Circuit from Munna Bhai MBBS
USP: Exceptional ability to find solutions to your problem
Accept it, we all need a friend to tell us ‘tension nahi lene ka bhai’ in times of distress. Whether it is getting Munna into medical college or arranging a dead body for dissection, Circuit has always been there for Munna Bhai. Played by Arshad Warshi, Circuit’s character has been portrayed as an immensely dedicated friend who would go to any extend to help his buddy.
3. Chand Nawab from Bajrangi Bhaijan
USP: It’s good to have a friend in media
Probably, you didn’t see this one coming!
But we do need an unexpected friend like Chand Nawab who would lend his helping hand when you feel completely lost. It will be cool to embark on an adventure with an entertaining friend like him. (Also, having a friend in media is always useful). Played by Nawazuddin Siddique, Nawab is a Pakistani Journalist who helps the protagonist in uniting Munni with her family.
4. Kabir from Zindagi na Milegi Dobara
USP: Peacemaker between friends
When you have more than one BFF, clashes are bound to take place. That’s when friends like Kabir come to the rescue. Played exceptionally well by Abhay Deol, Kabir is a calm and composed friend who acts as a bridge to his other two friends who are often at loggerheads with each other. Hence, we all should have a pal like Kabir Dewan who would plan an adventurous road trip and also maintain his calm when others go crazy.
5. Vijaylakshmi from Queen
USP: Gives you the care and love you need after a great fall
Finding a friend at the worst moment of your life who would care for you like a mother and teach you to live life to the fullest is no less than a boon. Vijaylakshmi is that one friend you need when you are in a stage of self-loathing regretting your decisons. Played by Lisa Haydon, Vijaylakshmi can also be that cool friend beyond borders you can brag about in front of your other friends.
Feel lucky if you have someone who is like at least one of these characters. It’s a great opportunity to let them know that it’s truly awesome to have them and celebrate the beautiful bond of friendship. Don’t forget to put on your mask and maintain social distancing while expressing your gratitude to your friend.
