The singer-filmmaker had captioned the pic stating, “Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything." I am blessed to have a friend like you Bhaji @_aamirkhan”.
