While Friendship Day falls on August 5, the entire month is celebrated. In the past, it was the rage to tie friendship bands and the more the bands you collect, the more popular you are as a friend. Now, however, one band is equal to a social media post. These celebrities took the day as an opportunity to wish their BFFs and profess their love for their support for all these years.
Vignesh Shivn’s love and friendship for Nayanthara
While Vignesh Shivn took time out and thanked all his friends including composer Anirudh Ravichander, his post for lady love Nayanthara was the one that stood out. “There’s so much of friendship in this love and a lot more love in this friendship,” he wrote, eliciting a lot of ‘awwws’ and ‘<3’ on his timeline.
Sonali Bendre and her gal pals
This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime… basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture… You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan
Battling cancer isn’t easy but with support from her best friends, Sonali Bendre soldiers on. With her treatment happening in the USA and with her going bald owing to chemotherapy, Sonali’s friends ensured she still smiled and kept herself distracted. Her friends, Gayatri Oberoi and Suzanne Khan, flew down to USA and they all seem to be having a lovely time. Her post, too, was emotional and so much of love for her pals. “Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment’s notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this,” she wrote.

The actor wished his besties while also thanking them for teaching him a thing or two about friendship. But perhaps the best wish was to his wife, with whom he shared a picture of from Paris.

Thank you for keeping the 5 yr old alive in me, and thank you for being 5 along with me! You are the reason i function everyday with positivity and strength, and don’t collapse! Thank you for the laughter, the entertainment, the mentalness, and even the tears and grumpiness… I learn from you Rockstar’s everyday… and most most importantly, thank you for the love and understanding ❤️🤗😘
