The truth, however, is that these girls have a solid friendship that spans decades. But as with all friendships, theirs has had a few bumps along the way. Being an actress, Kiara has opened up about her life and spoken about the hardships of being friends with the daughter of one of the wealthiest people in the world, Mukesh Ambani . Behind their fairy-tale BFF status, criticism is rife and navigating the negativity can be tough. However, their friendship has stood the test of time.

When Isha got engaged to Anand Piramal, Kiara paid tribute to her pal, calling her “my oldest friend”. She described Isha as “humble and caring” saying that the heiress had remained “as amazing as you were when we first met”. Battling perceptions Despite their long history together, Kiara says that being friends with Isha comes with a hefty tag. The Kabir Singh actress explained how after opening up about her friendship with Isha, many people judged them, refusing to see their friendship had depth. Kiara said that people assumed that because she was friends with a heiress, that meant that she hadn’t struggled in life. Kiara defended her own struggles, insisting that Isha’s wealth did not impact her work life or what she had gone through.
