After the release of Rajkumar Hirani’s epic biopic on Sanjay Dutt titled ‘Sanju’, the film has led to garner more and more attention on the extended personalities to Dutt. The blockbuster flick has received a positive response at the box office. According to critical reviews, the most applauding part of Sanju is the friendship of Sanjay Dutt with bestie Paresh Ghelani which has been portrayed by the lead Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal as Kamlesh Kanhailal Kapasi aka Kamli.

Ghelani is not an industry name but is an important personality especially for being by Dutt’s side during his 1993 Mumbai blasts trials.

I can talk my heart out to my sister”, she added.

Kiara Advani

The Lust Stories actress has found her bestie in mother Genevieve Advani. She says, “My mother is my best friend. She’s the rock-solid presence in my life.
