Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya is one of the top-rated and widely loved shows across India, and globally too. The success of the daily soap has escalated its lead couple Shabir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha to worldwide stardom. Pragya and Abhi, their characters, even have social media fan pages dedicated to them! Admittedly, Shabir doles out #husbandgoals even in real life; Sriti, meanwhile, embodies the ideal friend one should have.
In our previous story, we established how Shabir and his wife Kanchi Kaul are the coolest parents to sons Azai and Ivarr. Now it’s time we realise the gem of a person Sriti is as a friend. Little is known about her love life but one thing she has proved time and again is that each one of us needs a BFF like her in our lives.
Here, for those doubting, we have compiled seven reasons why we all should definitely have a best friend like Sriti Jha!
1. Google, could well be, Sriti’s middle name!
A bookworm at heart, Sriti has tea and a book for breakfast. Her Instagram account is flooded with the books she keeps reading and we wonder if there is anything the girl wouldn’t help you out with – slice-of-life, philosophy, history, romance – you name it.
2. She is that friend who can eat anything, anytime, anywhere!
Do you have a friend who tells you to eat less? Come on honey, you don’t need that kind of negativity. Sriti is a foodie. Sriti encourages her friends to eat. Be like Sriti.
3. She is the person who can double up as your plus one to all the parties and vacations.
We all have that friend who ditches at the eleventh hour for every vacation or weekend plan. That won’t be Sriti though! If it’s a get-together, you will find her as the first guest to arrive and last to leave, and besides, she always has her bags packed for a holiday.
4. More supportive than your push-up lingerie, we say!
A few things can lend as much support as your UG do. Our homegirl here is the best cheerleader, girlfriend, critic, inspiration and a source of love any friend can have.
5. Always has fashion tips handy.
It would be an added bonus that she is a television celebrity. And even otherwise, we trust Sriti to come up with the best of style, always. She is a pro!
6. She knows how to handle a camera and click Insta-worthy pictures!
Imagine the kind of pictures you click of your friend. They perhaps barely need a filter. And now imagine the ones your friend clicks of you. Never mind, is it? Well, good news, Sriti is that friend who will always capture you when you look and pose your best. She is a part-time poser of weird and funny poses too!
7. Down-To-Dharti (Read Earth)
Sriti’s portrayal of Pragya Arora has won her laurels and accolades from the critic classes and the masses alike. However, she has no air around herself of being one of the most sought-after names in the industry. And you thought girls in the same business cannot be friends. *insert eye roll emoji*
At the end of the day, friends are family for Sriti Jha and there’s nothing above family, right? Guessed so!
Sriti is also a voracious reader. And if you love reading too just like our Kumkum Bhagya’s Pragya, These 5 Books Should Be On Your List!
