For far too long, people have pitted women against each other, and Bollywood is no different! However, thanks to the positive camaraderie that’s shared between actresses, there has been a colossal change. From sticking up for a fellow co-star during movie releases to admiring their work on global platforms–here are 5 times Bollywood actresses have extended their love to their colleagues.
These two style icons are applauded for more than their acting expertise! Recently, Tamannaah Bhatia attended the 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, where she expressed her love for Sonam and her fashion sense. Talking to a leading daily, she said, “I have always loved watching Sonam (Kapoor Ahuja) on the red carpet. She is someone who has had a strong voice in fashion every time she was there. I have always admired her.” You go, girl! We love when accomplished women shower each other with compliments.
With Kangana Ranaut‘s Dhaakad and Kiara’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 releasing on the same date, the media drew heavy comparisons between the actresses. But our lady Kirara was quick to shut the competition down. She shared a loving selfie with Kangana days before their release at Arpita Khan Sharma’s Eid party. Kiara also said to a leading daily, “There is nothing better than women supporting women. It uplifts one’s morale.”
Kareena and Amrita have always been #BFFgoals! Recently when an Instagram page shared a picture of besties Kareena Kapoor Khan, Malaika Arora, and Amrita Arora, they were body-shamed by trolls. One troll even commented, “3 buddi”. Giving it back to trolls, Amrita Arora reposted the picture on her story with a fitting caption. “I keep seeing this on comments! If n when I bother to check unless it’s the one that comes up on top! So …buddhi is meant to be an insult ?? Cos for me it’s just a word …a word that means old?! Yes, we are older ..n wiser …but you, are nameless, faceless, ageless? And so are your folks?!” Kareen Kapoor reshared Amrita’s reply on her Insta story and said, “Way to go Amuuu”! These two definitely stick up for each other and we’re here for all the love!
Aishwarya and Rekha Ji have always shared a pleasant bond. This bond was further cemented when Rekha penned a sweet note for Aishwarya on completing two decades in the industry. The note reads, “You are a living example that courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently! Your deep strength and pure energy introduces you even before you speak!”. Don’t you just love it when two strong women share this much adoration?
Shraddha Kapoor has never shied away from celebrating women of the industry. Whether it is Alia, Parineeti, or even Kangana, she has always appreciated their work out loud. When Kangana’s Manikarnika trailer was out, Shraddha had nothing but good things to say. On Twitter, she wrote, “I really admire Kangana’s journey in cinema. Clearly, she is making her own rules & is dancing to her own tunes. Fingers & toes are crossed for Manikarnika ♥️”
There’s nothing better when an actress sings praises for another. Empowered women empower women and we couldn’t agree more!
