Best Friends

A heartwarming video showing how two strangers on a flight became best friends has gone viral, garnering over 29 million views and more than one million likes. The video narrates the story of Siddhi Chokhani and Shubham Pille, whose friendship began on an IndiGo flight and has lasted for ten years.


In the video, Chokhani is initially seen addressing the camera while seated on the flight, with text on the screen stating, “I found a cute guy on the flight.” The camera then reveals Pille sitting in front of her, engrossed in his phone. Chokhani writes a charming note on a napkin, which reads, “You’re cute” along with her phone number, and discreetly hands it to him. Pille reads the note, smiles, and writes a reply on the napkin: “Just like you.”

Siddhi Chokhani posted the video on Instagram, captioning it, “A decade and counting.”

All are strangers anyways.”
