We already did “real” couple friends, these are fictional couples! The pretend people in movies that, after the movie is over and they get married and move into the house down the street from you, you might want to befriend.
I’m gonna start a little outside of the box! Swara and Sonam in Veere Di Wedding. They are as much a “couple” as everyone else in the film, and after Shikha moves back to America and Kareena gets all absorbed by her in-laws, I want Swara and Sonam to adopt me and be my platonic couple friends. I’ll never be as close to them as they are to each other, but that’s okay.
Rani and Shahrukh in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. I know, they seem very unpleasant, but that’s partly just because they are unhappy. Shahrukh has a nasty wit that would make me laugh, Rani is very warm and nurturing, they don’t like clubs and late parties and stuff that I also do not like, I think I could have a good time hanging out with Rani on the sidelines while Shahrukh coached, and then going out for pizza as a threesome afterwards.
Okay, that’s my couple of couples! Who are yours?
