It’s not every day that one stumbles upon scoop about celebrity friends. However, when that happens, it makes for a fascinating revelation. Hence, this piece of news about Alia Bhatt’s bestie, Akansha Ranjan, will definitely interest you.

We hear, Akansha, the younger daughter of actor-director Shashi Ranjan and founder of Indian Television Academy, Anu Ranjan, is dating Avik Chatterjee, the elder son of Anjan Chatterjee, who is the man behind popular restaurants like Oh! Calcutta and Mainland China. Buzz is, the two have been seeing each other for a year now. (Akansha’s elder sister, Anushka made her Bollywood debut with Binod Pradhan’s, Wedding Pulav)

Akansha is a popular face on social media with over a lakh followers on Instagram and 8000+ followers on Twitter. Alia and Akansha are best of friends and have grown up together. Be it birthdays or holidays, the duo’s social media accounts are replete with pictures of them having a gala time

You may recall that in September last year, Alia took off to Spain to surprise Akansha on her birthday.

The birthday girl, whom Alia fondly calls Kanchu, thanked her bestie, saying, "Every time I feel you've given me the best birthday, you manage to top yourself! Thanks for another year of having it all. This is the best surprise ever, I love you." Overwhelmed, Alia lovingly responded, "Saat samundar paar main tere peeche peeche aa agayi."

Months before that, Akansha had helped Alia’s sister Shaheen plan her birthday party.

That’s what you call true love. Isn’t it?
