While we often see most celebrities hanging out with their co-stars or fellow friends from the industry, their friend circle is not limited to just the industry! And thanks to social media platforms, we all have been noticing these non-celeb pals more often now.

Here are some of our favourite celebrities and their “non-celeb” BFFs, i.e. people from outside the movie industry but who are part of their close friend circle: 

1. Janhvi Kapoor & Hani Sarkar

These two have been friends for a very long time. Hani Sarkar, who is also friends with Javed Jaaferi’s daughter, Alaviaa, boasts of a 13.3k strong fanbase on her social media account. From clubbing to night outs in New York, these two are often spotted together. 


2. Vicky Kaushal & Amol Pradhan, Abhishek Parmar & Kaustabh Deshpande

On his 31st birthday, Vicky Kaushal reportedly spent time with his college BFFs in New York. He apparently rented a villa in the countryside of the city and had a gala time with his three old friends, who arrived from Boston and New Jersey. He often posts pictures with his best friends too.


3. Alia Bhatt & Meghna Goyal

There’s no doubt that the actor has been busy playing the bridesmaid at her girlfriends’ weddings. In 2021, the actor was spotted attending her school friend, Meghna Goyal’s wedding and the pictures were nothing but dreamy. 

4. Sonam Kapoor & Shehla Khan

These two have been best friends from their teenage years and have been pretty close since then. Shehla Khan, who is a fashion designer by profession, even designed Sonam Kapoor’s Cannes outfit in 2013.

5. Sara Ali Khan & Kamya Arora and Tasheen Rahimtoola

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably already know that Sara Ali Khan is a Columbia University graduate. Kamya Arora, who was her college mate in New York, is often spotted with the actor. From Maldives and Kerala to New York, they often travel together to different picturesque locations.


Tasheen Rahimtoola, on the other hand, is an entrepreneur who launched Taste Retreat. The two are often spotted on each other’s Instagram page, sharing vacations and treats!

8. Anushka Sharma & Kanika Karvinkop
