SHRADDHA’S BFF IS LIKE A TATTOO IN HER HEART
On Friendship Day, Shraddha Kapoor and best friend Eshanka Wahi let us into their world of fun and laughter
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.
