No mat­ter how hec­tic her sched­ule may get, ac­tor Son­akshi Sinha says she makes sure that she spends time with her friends. This, she says, re­laxes and re­ju­ve­nates her, which in turn helps her do bet­ter at work.

“I make it a point to spend time with my friends when­ever I have time off from work. My friends are the peo­ple who help me un­wind and for­get all about work. When I am with them, I don’t have a care in the world. They’re a real stress­buster, so I hang with them as much as I can,” says Sona, 28.

Talk­ing about her best friend, she says, “My old­est and best friend is Vidhi (Lodha). She’s a char­tered ac­coun­tant and we were in school to­gether. I can’t re­mem­ber a sin­gle time when I have needed her and she’s not been there,” she says.

The fact that they are from dif­fer­ent worlds is what makes this friend­ship spe­cial for Son­akshi. “I love the fact that my best friend is not from the film world. It helps keep things in per­spec­tive,” she says, adding, “Grow­ing up, we had a lot in com­mon. We were in the same school, we have the same silly sense of hu­mour, we don’t take life too se­ri­ously. We grew up and moved into our pro­fes­sions, but noth­ing re­ally changed in our equa­tion.” Sona adds, “Vidhi and I have known each other since we were 10 years old. We have way too many mem­o­ries over the years. I don’t think I laugh as much with any­one else as I do with her. We have got­ten into trou­ble, cov­ered each other’s backs, em­bar­rassed our­selves, and evolved. Many peo­ple have come and gone, but she is the one con­stant in my life. She’s more like the sis­ter I never had.”
