Friends are the true treasures of our lives and Farhan Akhtar’s character Imraan Qureshi from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara perfectly exemplifies the statement. On the 12th anniversary of the film, let’s take a look at why we all deserve a friend like Imraan in our real life.
Honest and as straight as a dice
Imraan exemplifies a straightforward approach in the film and isn’t afraid to openly admit his mistakes to his friends. There is a scene in the film where Imraan tells Arjun (played by Hrithik Roshan) the truth about the history of their disputes and the cold war between them. Despite Arjun’s anger towards Imraan, he shows his calm and collected demeanor and apologizes. The saying that He is straight as a die is proved exactly by this example.
silly and funny
Imraan is the one who can pull a joke and also take a joke easily. It’s clear that he constantly carries that spirit of joy and fun with him. With his humor, he made an inanimate object like ‘Bagvati’ almost as popular as any other member of the ensemble film cast. Even his ability to make his friends laugh at the toughest times or just to be the life of the party when having fun are qualities that make the fun and goofy side of him extremely important as a friend.
Never make your life easy
A wise man once said: “Good friends are responsible for two things: being the baddest and never making your life easy.” This adage is proven in the film, as Imraan often teases and pushes Arjun, who prioritizes his job and his career above everything else. At one point, Imraan even threw Arjun’s phone out of the car during a work call that only the close friend could have the courage to make and surely, Arjun was ultimately grateful for it.
mature and understanding
Above all other traits, Imraan is the only one who consistently responds appropriately to circumstances. He acknowledges Kabir’s narrative when he explains the reason for not getting married and, putting his maturity at the forefront, offers him practical advice on how to handle the situation. The ability to balance a fun attitude with a mature understanding of situations is what makes you a friend’s keeper.
Imraan de Farhan is a reliable companion who can be relied on under any circumstances, and is constantly available to friends when they need to express their feelings and opinions.
Imran’s character motivates you in an exemplary way not to let your inner demons consume you, despite the countless times that life imprisons you and to give everything in your friendships.
