Actor Varun Dhawan is thankful to his ABCD 2 co-star and close friend Shraddha Kapoor for being by his side always.

The 28-year-old "Badlapur" star said he hopes his bond with his childhood friend strengthens with time.

"She’s been my friend and by my side since 21 years and hope we continue being friends always @ShraddhaKapoor," he tweeted alongside a selfie of the duo.

Varun and Shraddha, 26, stars recently celebrated the success bash of "ABCD 2", directed by Remo D’Souza.

It was the sequel to Remo’s 2013 film "ABCD: Anybody Can Dance".
