‘Bro-mance’ is more than just a cool term for a guy best friend duo. It’s not even a term, it’s a feeling. The feeling you have when you know this one person would always be there for you. This said person will laugh with you, cry with you, get angry at you, but never leave your side. Here’s to our favourite bromances of Bollywood!
1. Dream Girl (2019)
Ayushmann Khurrana’s sidekick and best friend Smiley, played by Manjot Singh was an icing to the cake that the film was. Cracking us up with his hilarious one-liners, Manjot and Ayushmann’s friendship was rock solid!
2. Gully Boy (2019)
Friend, mentor, life coach – Siddhant Chaturvedi was all this to Ranveer Singh and more. The rapper paved the way for Ranveer’s stellar hip-hop career, and stayed on as his guiding light.
Vicky Kaushal’s guidance to Ranbir Kapoor wasn’t limited to his career or life choices. If Sanju was a tree, Kamli was the very root from which he thrived – Sanju was nothing without his best friend and life mate. And all this was based on Sanjay Dutt’s real life bromance with Kamlesh Kanhaiya Kapasi.
4. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018)
Sometimes our brothers and friends get an inkling of things we wouldn’t even have a clue about! That is exactly what Sonu and Teetu‘s friendship stood for – standing the test of everything that would try to come in between.
5. Gunday (2014)
People may come, and people may go – but real friendships stay on forever. The two Gunday had their share of ups and downs but they stuck together nevertheless!
6. Kai Po Che (2013)
Who says a bromance needs to be between two people alone? We might think that friendship requires a lot of time and effort, but Kai Po Che proved that not every bromance is that complicated. Material things and possessions may wither over with time, but friendship stays forever!
7. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013)
Their friendship saw as many highs as it saw lows, but Ranbir Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur came out stronger and how! Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani taught a very important lesson – that friendship is also about forgiving.
8. Desi Boyz (2011)
Some of the best business ideas often sprout from among the best friendships – and that’s exactly what Akshay Kumar and John Abraham did in the film Desi Boyz.
9. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)
Rediscovering friendship while travelling on the adventure of a lifetime was what Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was about. They danced, partied, fought and made up all in a single trip!
10. 3 Idiots (2009)
Not all friendships are easy – and they often do require an extra effort to reconcile or reach out to that long-lost friend. After all, what would the 3 Idiots be without their third idiot?
11. Rock On (2008)
Friendships often blossom into the inception of something beautiful – which includes great music! Farhan Akhtar and Arjun Rampal’s friendship had its differences, but they reconciled and made it through.
12. Munnabhai (2003)
This friendship went to the extent of believing the other’s hallucinations too! In spite of slaps, punches, drinks and everything in between – Circuit and Munnabhai were literally inseparable since childhood.
13. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
Dil Chahta Hai… Hum Na Rahe Kabhi Yaaron Ke Bin – this song represents ‘bromance’ at its very best and the film as well.
14. Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan (1998)
The classic jodi of Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan – they made us roll with laughter and shed happy tears at the same time.
15. Ishq (1997)
Ishq is testimony to what ‘bromance’ essentially stood for – understanding one’s love for whoever we did, backing up each other on the most silly of plans and just generally being there for each other!
16. Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994)
Hum dono hain alag alag, hum dono hain juda juda! This very line is the essence of every bromance, Akshay and Saif’s included.
17. Andaaz Apna Apna (1994)
Andaaz Apna Apna was the bromance that took off for very different reasons, but ended up going slightly off course!
18. Sholay (1975)
The OG’s of brotherhood – Jai and Veeru are the very epitome of bromance! As the song rightly said, and which summarizes the entire gist of the article, yeh dosti hum nahi todenge.
