It has been 2 months since the release of Arjun Reddy, but the movie feels are still fresh. A lot has already been discussed about the story, Vijay’s acting, Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s direction. Well, the role of Arjun’s friend Shiva (Rahul Ramakrishna) deserves a special mention. In the movie, Shiva is one person who manages to be the light in Arjun’s world of darkness. In this movie, Shiva is more than a friend. He is beyond a family member for Arjun. From silly issues to serious concerns, Shiva has always been there for Arjun like a brother. Here, we take a look at few of the best instances that define Shiva as the perfect friend one could ever ask for.
1. Defending you:
From lecturer to HOD and principal to police, your best friend will always be there to defend you.
2. Understanding your love:
You don’t need to tell them anything. Choopu chusi ardam cheskuntaaru..
3. Bro Code:
Best friend ki nachina ammai joliki evaru velladdhu ani ‘ardam ayyela’ cheppadam..
Your casual conversations are full of cuss words. Best friend tho muchatlu ante maata mundho bhuthu..venako bhuthu pretty common..
You know he is your best friend when he says something like “neetho friendship chesthe etla untadho telsa ra..”
6. Sensibly pointing your mistake :
A best friend always tells you where you have gone wrong (here, communication) and things you shouldn’t be doing while in a relationship.
7. Never leave you alone:
Best friends won’t leave you just like that when in pain. They are always behind you even if your life is turning upside down.
8. Knowing pain:
They know your pain. They understand each and every situation which doesn’t require discussions. Your pain is their pain.
9. Can’t see you taking pain:
Best friends can never see their friends getting beaten/in pain. They save their ones ‘at any cost’. Manchiga adagadam nundi.. violent ga warnings varaku..they do everything to save your back.
10. Explain you:
Best friends kurchopetti explain chestharu.. they do not see if it’s the right time or not.. they try to pacify you.

Telisi chesina..theleeka chesinaa..manchaina chedaina.. edhi jariginaa, your friend is always beside you even if it is a PS.
12. Second home:
Your best friend’s home is always there for you.
Your best friend knows your real pain and never hesitates to hug you or wipe your tears when you’re in pain
Sometimes, they take decisions on your behalf.
Even decisions involving your family, when your best friend tells you that it’s not right.. you go for it. This is the trust you need to have in a friendship.
If your conversation is not this candid.. then he/she isn’t your ‘best friend’
17. Being your BBC:
When someone is trying to hit on you, best friend will always be the first one to get their full information.
You always try to insult the other when a third friend joins you.

And you take insults like a pro.
20. Tackling Anger:
You’ve seen their anger and you’re used to it. You never get angry because you know their anger is out of pain.
21. Knowing you:
Sometimes even when parents fail you, your best friend tells you your real potential. They know your worth and have 100% confidence in you.
22. Happiness – Sadness
Only a best friend feels that your happiness is their happiness, your sadness is their sadness.
23. Family – Sharing :
“Avunuu..ne friend edi ra..” You know he is your best friend when their family members show their concern and get to listen what is happening in your life. Not just the good, but best friends never hesitate in telling their own family members about the bad phase happening in your life.
His family left him. His girlfriend left him. But his friend Shiva never left him. A true friend never leaves you. He knows he can’t share your pain..but will always be there for you.
