Call them part­ners in crime or soul­mates for life —ac­tor Shraddha Kapoor and her BFF Eshanka Wahi (TV ac­tor Karan Wahi’s sis­ter), an event man­ager, don’t need a spe­cial day to cel­e­brate their friend­ship. Go­ing for hol­i­days, par­ty­ing, be­ing part of each other’s fam­ily gath­er­ings, the two have been to­gether since they were in their nap­pies. Today, on Friend­ship Day, Shraddha and Eshanka un­ravel some fun facts about their bond.

How would you de­scribe the bond you share with each other?

Shraddha: We’ve known each other our whole lives now, so it feels like she is an ex­ten­sion of me. She’s like a per­ma­nent tat­too that I know is go­ing to be there for­ever. It’s like a tat­too in my heart.

Eshanka: It’s ac­tu­ally in­de­scrib­able. It’s sur­real. She’s al­ways been this guardian an­gel in my life, fix­ing ev­ery­thing for me. Though I have an el­der sis­ter, I would al­ways look up to Shraddha to solve my prob­lems.

Did any­thing change after Shraddha be­came an ac­tor, con­sid­er­ing her busy sched­ule?

Eshanka: I can’t believe that she is an ac­tor. When we go on hol­i­day and peo­ple call out for pic­tures, I keep on shout­ing, ‘what is this?’ Re­cently, we were in Italy and at a place where we didn’t ex­pect any­body to show up and ask for a photo. And there we saw a bat­tal­ion of sar­daars and I just cracked up.

Shraddha: See, she’s the one who laughs about it all the time. We were in our swimwear by the pool at a pri­vate area, hang­ing out and chill­ing and when I heard my name be­ing called out, she burst out laugh­ing say­ing, ‘you thought that you won’t be found.’

Share one funny anec­dote you re­mem­ber from your child­hood.

Shraddha: When we were grow­ing up, we used to tell each other ‘oh I wish I find a guy like you’ be­cause we had sensed that there’s no other com­pany bet­ter than hav­ing each other.

Eshanka: Yeah and I’ve mar­ried this guy very re­cently and his sun-sign, moon sign and as­cen­dant are all Shraddha’s. When I met him and we fell in love, I called her up and told her that I have found a guy ver­sion of you.
