Alia Bhatt is truly the darling of Bollywood. She's young, she's vibrant and she always seems to be spreading happy vibes everywhere she goes. From her co-stars to her directors, everyone has something nice to say about Alia Bhatt. Alia started her career rather young with Karan Johar's 2012 film Student Of The Year - she was barely 20 then - but it didn't take long for her to make her place in the industry and in the hearts of millions of fans. Every interview Alia gives and every interaction she has either with her fans or the press seems real and yet never fails to entertain. That's perhaps what has made her stand out from the gamut of young actresses finding their way in Bollywood.
We know a lot about Alia Bhatt's career and the movies she's done or is currently shooting for; but what many of us might have missed is that Alia Bhatt is also a great friend. Her Instagram account is all the proof we need to make that statement. Alia's immense love for two of her closest friends, Ayan Mukherjee and Akansha Ranjan, is crystal clear from all the PDA she shows them on social media.
Alia has often claimed that director Ayan Mukherjee is her soulmate and confidante. Her posts with Ayan show us just that.
On Ayan's birthday Alia posted this super cute picture of them together, claiming that she doesn't know how she would even move a muscle without him.
If this picture doesn't show the pure love and friendship between Ayan and Alia, we don't know what will.
Ayan definitely seems to be part of Alia's A-team and "sunshine crew".
So much so that the two are now shooting a film together, also starring Ranbir Kapoor. Alia, Ayan and Ranbir were recently prepping for Brahmastra, as the film is titled, in Tel Aviv, Israel. We cannot wait to see what this crew will put up for us.
Akansha Ranjan Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's relationship seems like it's right out of a great novel about friendship. The two of them seem thick as thieves and always by each other's sides. Whether it's a trip to someplace new or an out of town movie shoot for the actress, Akansha and Alia seem to do it all together.
Alia recently posted this adorable picture with her BFF with the caption "I like me better when I'm with you" from a trip they took together to Bali.
Alia and Akansha sure know how to be their stylish best for a night out, even when on vacation, far away from the usual array of clothing choices available to them.
Along with friendship goals, these best friends are definitely setting the bar for beach dressing pretty high.
Alia's post wishing everyone a Happy New Year was also with Akansha. Alia posted a happy picture with her best friend and said, "Let this year be about love. Love for your friends, love for your family, love for your work,love for our planet, love for our animals, love for yourself & most of all love for LIFE Happy New Year"
Alia and Akansha's friendship isn't just limited to holidays. These two make it a point to chill together on their off days and also work out together.
Alia Bhatt is not the only one showering Akansha with all this affection on social media. Akansha makes sure she makes her BFF feel special and gives her plenty of love on social media too.
At a recent wedding, Alia and Akansha looked stunning and shared a little glimpse of their outfits with us through this picture posted by Akansha.
Akansha also posted this joyous picture of the two enjoying an evening in Kashmir, sipping on some kahwa. Akansha had accompanied her best friend there for the shoot of the film Raazi, directed by Meghna Gulzar.
Akansha and Alia also seem to enjoy some quality time with their girl gang often. This duo, along with their girls, definitely seem to know how to live life to the fullest.
Alia Bhatt may have won us over with her charm on screen, but her pictures with her friends just made her a little bit more endearing. Here's one more thing to look upto Alia for; no matter how busy she might be, she always makes time for her friends.
