The caption read, “Enjoying the houseboat in Srinagar,” along with hashtags like #FriendsForEver and #MakingMemories.

Bollywood’s Kashmir Tales

Fans flooded Parekh’s comments section with admiration. One user exclaimed, “Triveni Sangam. 3 unmatched, unparalleled dancing Queens of the 60s & ’70s have come together. What a fantastic moment!” Another commented, “Vintage queens!!” A third shared, “Seeing all of you together makes my heart relax.
