Remember having the Maharashtrian kid for your best friend when you didn’t even know what friendship meant?
Going to school with him, playing cricket/video game in the evening and taking tuitions and studying together became everyday life.
Then both of you entered adulthood and your bond grew strong with it. Things changed, too.
One of the things that changed was the way you two (or rather him) referred one another. Calling each other on first name basis took a backseat and substitutes came in. These are some of the many Mumbai friendship slangs every Mumbaikar uses for his buddy –
Hope you connect with some of the names that we have presented in this list. If we have missed any, do let us know what slang you use to refer your friend.
