Actors Shahana Gowami and Deepika Padukone’s friendship became the talk of the town when the two worked together in Break Ke Baad (2010). The two often spoke about being off-screen best friends, too. However, with their different work schedules, the actors, at times, lose touch with each other. But, Shahana says that the moment they meet, they “pick it from where they had left”.
The bond that initiated on the film sets has flourished for years now. And remembering the initial days of their friendship, Shahana says that she and Deepika “instantly came close”. “We still continue to be good friends. Of course, our lives have taken different turns and it’s hard to be in touch with each other’s lives constantly, given the amount of travelling and business she has in her life,” says the actor.
Shahana has been living in Paris for the last two years, where she is studying and pursuing theatre, and she shares that even her work schedule has been quite packed. “I’ve travelled a lot both for shooting of films and to attend film festivals. And since I live abroad now, communication has lessened. You can’t be in touch with everyone physically also,” says Shahana, who was last seen in Tu Hai Mera Sunday (2017).
However, the 31-year-old clarifies that she isn’t someone who forgets her friends. She says, “The nature of every friendship is different and I don’t think they die due to the lack of communication. They die with the lack of the right kind of communication. And thankfully, I continue to have that right kind with Deepika. So whenever we meet, we have something to talk about.”
Shahana blames the hectic schedules of actors, which includes promotions and shoots, as the primary reason for not being able to squeeze in time for a good social life. “A lot depends on figuring out the common time and schedule, which is quite problematic, while planning to meet friends. For me, the quality of a friendship isn’t determined by how often you speak to each other. It’s more about how relevant your friendship continues to be at any point of time and how you connect with each other,” she says
