Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year. The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in US in 1935. Gradually the festival gained popularity . Read what our TV stars says on friendship day.
Vibha Anand aka Laxmi (Sanskaar Laxmi) : Nupur Joshi is one of my very good friends but she stays in Dehradun. I just wish she was here so that we could spend the day together. I really miss her a lot. I’m also good friends with my dad. I just want to thank both of them for always supporting me. As far as my dad is concerned, I would say he means a lot to me. In fact whatever I am today is only because of him.
Sara Khan aka Mona (Ram Milaayi Jodi): I cut a cake on Friendship Day and give all my friends gifts that make them happy. And if I am free, then I party as well. I feel you should celebrate this day with a bang because there are very few lucky people who become our best friends and one needs to tell them how special and meaningful they make our lives. This year, I am definitely going to party on Friendship Day.
Amrita Raichand (Shobha Somnath Ki): For me friendship is very important because you need someone with whome you can discuss all your issues in life. I do’nt know how many friends I have because all I know are my best friends. I dont believe in any kind of celebration to acknowledge my friends. As far as I am concerned, every day is a day to celebrate friendship day!
Nishant Malkani aka Anukalp (Ram Milaayi Jodi): I was born and brought up in New Delhi and Friendship Day was always enjoyable and memorable for me. I remember last year on this day I went for an outing with all my close buddies and had lots of fun there. It was just before I started shooting for Ram Milaayi Jodi. This day is very special for me because we friends only find this day to catch up with one another.
Ankita Lokhande aka Archana (Pavitra Rishta): I believe friends are forever so I don’t need a special day to tell them how much you care for them. It should be celebrated throughout the year. I don’t need a special time or date to tell them of their importance in my life. But yes, if any of your friends are upset with you, then it’s the right day to sort out all past issues and make them feel special.
Manit Joura aka Goldie (Ram Milaayi Jodi): Friendship means a lot to me and I have lots of friends in Delhi and in Mumbai also. I usually don’t celebrate friendship day but for me if I have some spare time from my shooting schedule I talk to my friends, meet them and enjoy. For all of my fans I want to say thank you for your love and appreciation.
