The bond of friendship is being celebrated across the world in the past week. After International Friendship Day a few days ago, the day to honour the strong relations with friends was also celebrated in India on Sunday. Even the celebrities of the film industry shared their special moments on social media.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s post was dedicated to his friends, who were also his co-actors, much before he made it big in the film industry. One of them is a known face, Rochak Kohli, who the actor has collaborated on numerous songs like Pani Da Rang, Saddi Gali, and more.
The Gulabo Sitabo star recalled how the duo were a part of a group called Aagaaz and had gone bald for a college play Kumaraswami, that too during the ‘peak winters of Chandigarh.’ Ayushmann wrote that he was blessed to have such ‘great friends’ and called them his ‘pillars of strength.’
The actor also had a special note for Rochak, recalling how they had been friends from 8th grade. He wrote that both being inclined towards creative arts and ‘crazily passionate’ about music, their bond has been strong through ‘thick and thin.’ He also shared that he realised the importance of human connections in the COVID-19 pandemic, and stated that he was blessed to be in touch with close to 40 batchmates, calling it a ‘blessing.’
I am blessed to have great friends! My friends have been my pillars of strength. This picture was taken when we were getting ready for a college play. We had started this group called Aaghaaz, the play was called Kumaraswami and I played the lead character. We were a total of 10 boys in the play and all of us went bald during the peak winters in Chandigarh! Rochak and I have always shared a special bond. We were both inclined towards the creative arts. I have known him since the 8th grade. We went to the same school since the late 90’s - St. John’s High School, Chandigarh. We became friends in school when we discovered that both of us are crazily passionate about music. I’m lucky that we clicked and since then we have stayed tight through thick and thin. During a pandemic like this, you realise how important human connections are. Along with Rochak, I am in touch with nearly 40 of my batchmates and I truly consider this as a blessing 💛 Here’s wishing each and everyone of you a very Happy Friendship Day! @rochakkohli (Kumar Saurav, Jaiveer Singh and Mayank Choudhary also in the picture)
