B-town's best Bromance

Date: 18 August 2015 

Indian filmmakers have always toyed with two or three hero subjects, which have more often than not reaped rich dividends at the BO. Who can forget the warring brothers of Deewar played by Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan or the goofballs of Andaz Apna Apna essayed by Aamir and Salman Khan. Dil Chahta Hai starring Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Khanna remains a cult film when it comes to male bonding and friendship.

Rock On!! revolving around a rock band comprising Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli too depicted men bonding big time. Talking of bromance, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham made for a cute fake gay couple in Dostana.

In the recent past, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara saw the leading men connecting with each other against scenic backdrops as they take a road trip.

The recently released Brothers may have elicited mixed reviews but one can't ignore the on-screen chemistry between Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra. Let's see what our actors and filmmakers have to say about their fav onscreen bromances.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The three characters made you believe they were old friends.

Gurmeet Choudhary -
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is the ultimate 'bond' flick. And Hrithik, Farhan and Abhay represented the essence of friendship. It showed three friends as brothers who can live their lives together, not once but even dobara. These are the kind of friends who get the best out of you. After this film I understood the importance of friendship in our lives.

Tusshar Kapoor -

Ram Kapoor -
Mr Bachchan and Dharamji in Sholay.

Sophie Choudry -
My favourite bromance has to be Dostana. John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan have the most amazing comic timing and chemistry. Their mutual comfort level was commendable.

Prabhudheva -
My favourite bromance is CV Sridhar's Pyar Kiye Jaa. The bonding between Om Prakashji and Mehmood Saab was incredible.

Aditya Narayan -
