Friendship is a 2021 Indian Tamil-language sports comedy film directed by John Paul Raj and Sham Surya. A remake of the Malayalam-language film Queen, the film stars Arjun, Harbhajan Singh, Losliya Mariyanesan, Sathish. It marks the acting debut of Harbajan Singh and Losliya Mariyanesan, after the latter’s stint at Bigg Boss Tamil. The film was released on 17 September 2021.
Harbhajan was chosen to play the main lead role after becoming popular in the state of Tamil Nadu since playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League. He often interacted with Tamil spectators while playing for CSK and apparently was offered the role to portray a college student from Punjab in the film. It is also the first time that an Indian high-profile cricketer is set to play the main lead role in an Indian film.
