Ever wondered who are Salman Khan`s closest friends in the industry? Who is Kareena Kapoor Khan`s BFF? Or who is close to Ajay Devgn? Well, on this Friendship`s Day, let`s look at the old and strong friendships in Bollywood that have lasted over the years and are still going strong.
Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt
Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt`s friendship is one example of strong solidarity. They have been known to be friends for a very long time now. Both have been there for each other through thick and thin and have had no qualms in showing off their mutual affection and admiration. They share a lovely bond both on-and-off screen. Sanju baba has always been protective of Sallu bhai and he has even admitted in an interview that he wanted Salman to learn from his good side and not repeat his mistakes.
In an interview with a leading daily, Salman revealed that Sanju baba had almost convinced him to get married. One can gauge the amount of confidence and amicable ties that the two have.
Both shared a great chemistry as hosts in `Bigg Boss 5` and Salman even got infuriated with one of the contestants who was disrespectful towards his dear old friend.
Karan Johar, Kajol and Shah Rukh
Speaking of long lasting friendships, one can`t miss out the unmatchable bond that filmmaker Karan Johar shares with Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan. The trio have worked together in several hit movies - `Kuch Kuch Hota Hai`, `Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham` , `My Name is Khan` and Kajol was even seen in special appearances in his films `Kal Ho Na Ho` and `Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna`. She has been Karan`s muse for a very long time and even now their friendship remains strong.
As for SRK, Karan had admitted few months back that Shah Rukh and Aditya Chopra are his two weaknesses. We all know of the close bond that the two share even beyond work. Karan is also known to share a great connection with Shah Rukh`s wife, Gauri Khan.
The noted director rubbished all rumours which claimed that things had turned sour between him and SRK after the actor was not seen in the current season of `Koffee With Karan`.
In an interview to a leading daily, Karan also mentioned that he and King Khan share the best actor-director chemistry and he can`t wait to direct him again. So, now we all can be assured that there is no bad blood between the two friends and hopefully both will come together for a movie pretty soon.
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora
They are best of friends and have remained so for quite some time now. Bebo shares a great rapport with Amrita and both have a mutual admiration for each other. Whoever said that two girls cannot be the best of friends in Bollywood certainly didn`t know about them!
The two had first worked together in `Golmaal Returns` and Kareena was even one of the bridesmaids at Amrita`s wedding in 2009. Amrita was pregnant when Bebo tied the knot with Saif, despite that she was there for her. In an industry, where in a blink of an eye friends turn foes, Bebo has proved that two actresses can be BFFs!
Salman and Ajay Devgn
Not many are aware of their friendship, but it is true. Ajay and Sallu bhai have been friends since a long time. Ajay is among one of the few actors in Salman`s good books and as we know bhai jaan has always gone out of his way for his friends.
While Ajay did a small cameo in Salman`s hit movie `Ready`, the `Dabangg` actor was seen shaking a leg with Devgn in a song from `Son of Sardaar`. Ajay and Salman have worked together in the blockbuster hit `Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam` and also in `London Dreams`.
Salman Khan and Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan is another of Salman`s close ties. The two most influential Khans worked together in `Andaaz Apna Apna`. And even though they have not worked together, Salman and Aamir came close during Aamir`s divorce. They have remained good friends thereafter.
Their friendship can be summed up to `Friends who pee together, stay together`. While promoting Salman`s `Jai Ho` on social media, Aamir had posted a picture of the two peeing together and captioned it as `Do dost ek jhaad pe susu kartein hain toh dosti badti hai" 1 day to go...Jai Ho!!!
The two certainly do not miss out any chance to praise each other. Few days back, Mr Perfectionist took to micro-blogging site Twitter to wish good luck to his best buddy. This is what the tweet read:
Dil khol ke rakhna doston, kal Salman ek bar phir Dil mein uttrega! All the best Salman! Love. a.

The `Dhoom 3` actor has always been there for Sallu Bhai, while the other Khan too was spotted at the celebrity charity football match organised by Aamir`s daughter, Ira Khan.
Let`s raise a toast to these stars who have proved their loyalty and friendship over time!
