There’s an insane amount of hoopla over Valentine’s Day aka V-Day, on February 14, right? But 24 hours before the feeding frenzy of red roses, red balloons, red cupcakes, and red whatnot, gal pals across the world raise a toast to Galentine’s Day. This day, celebrated on February 13, is for lavishing affection not on a romantic partner, but on a BFF.

This fabulous term, Galentine’s Day, was coined by a fictional character, named Leslie Knope, from the American sitcom Parks and Recreation. She described it as a day when the ladies leave their husbands and boyfriends behind and step out with their girlfriends to celebrate the bond of love that women share. Take a look at these Bollywood women, who’re fast friends and give us major BFF goals.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora Ladak

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora Ladak were good friends even before Kareena had made her Bollywood debut with Refugee (2000). The duo makes us envious with their stunning party pictures on Instagram, as they go out painting the town red. They dress to kill wherever they go. Recently, when Amrita turned 40, the girl squad celebrated her birthday in Goa in the most fabulous way — the husbands were there, too!

Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez

Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez share a strong bond. They celebrate each other’s birthday in the best possible way. And together, they take the red carpet by storm, posing as Bollywood’s hottest BFFs. During one such red carpet event, Sonam was seen fixing Jacqueline’s dress on the red carpet itself and we couldn’t stop admiring their verve. In an interview given to a leading daily, Jacqueline had once revealed that she and Sonam were competitive but never insecure. These words say it all about their friendship.

Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt

You can spot Alia and Katrina almost everywhere together. From working out at the gym to attending the hottest parties in tinsel town, Kat and Alia always celebrate BFF love. Katrina shares her twinning pictures with Alia on Instagram often.

Mini Mathur and Maria Goretti

TV personality Maria Goretti describes fellow TV host Mini Mathur as her partner in many fun crimes and drunken rhymes. The two beautiful women started their career together as video jockeys — that’s how they met for the first time. Their party scenes are incomplete without each other and their Instagram feed is a proof of that.
