It’s that time of the year again when sibling revelry is at the forefront. Well, it is Raksha Bandhan after all. Out come the rakhis and the gifts as siblings across the country bask in the warmth of love and affection. And, things are no different with our B-town stars who set some serious sibling goals each year as they celebrate the special day in all its glory. So, we thought we would have a little celebration of our own and explore some of the strongest and most fun sibling bonds in Bollywood. From fashion statements to performance benchmarks, these siblings have been impressing us for years now.
Take a look at some of our favourite Bollywood siblings.
1.Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan
The Pataudi siblings, Soha Ali Khan and Saif Ali Khan share many similarities in addition to their love for acting. The two are avid bibliophiles and are known to have a sharp sense of humour. We are in love with this pair and we bet you are too. They also have a third sibling Saba Ali Khan, who is a jewellery designer.
2.Sonam Kapoor And Harshvardhan Kapoor
India has been in love with Sonam Kapoor ever since she made her debut in Saawariya as the whimsical beauty, Sakina in 2007. Almost a decade later, her brother Harshavardhan made his debut in Mirzya. With breathtaking looks and acting chops that set them apart from their peers, this brother-sister duo is special in so many ways. And we have to mention the third sibling, producer and stylist Rhea Kapoor, who is known to be the force behind Sonam’s top fashion game. A terrific trio, don’t you think?
3.Zoya Akhtar And Farhan Akhtar
Born to revered Bollywood figures, Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani, excellence was always expected from Zoya Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar. And boy, did they deliver. Farhan Akhtar paved the way for a new age of Hindi films and also proved that he can wear many hats, from acting to singing. Zoya Akhtar is known for her unique directorial choices and has made a name for herself as a master storyteller.
4. Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Nanda
With the iconic Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan as parents, to say that fans were interested in their children, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Nanda would be an understatement. While Abhishek followed in the footsteps of his parents and embraced acting, Shweta only graced the camera initially for selected interviews. However, with time, she has also explored modelling and acted in few advertisements with her father.
5.Salman Khan, Alvira Khan and Arpita Khan
Salman Khan’s love for his sisters Alvira and Arpita is well known. A cursory glance at their Instagram timelines will show you that Salman bhai, as he is fondly called, is always there for his sisters.
6.Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor
Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor embody the spirit, love and warmth of siblinghood. They may be half-siblings, but their relationship is as wholesome as it gets. The sibling duo is incomplete without Anshula and Khushi who make for a happy quartet at the Kapoor home.
7.Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem
This duo has been winning over the hearts of cine-goers with their earnest performances. From the quintessential masala movies to author-backed roles, Huma and Saqib can do it all and in style.
8. Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharma
This sibling pair is a powerhouse of talent. As Anushka Sharma set the box office on fire with each of her films, her brother Karnesh joined her in creating a production house that gave a platform to new age cinema and unconventional scripts. With films such as NH10, Pari, Phillauri, Bulbbul, and Paatal Lok, this sibling team is here to rule.
9. Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor
While Raksha Bandha at one time was about celebrating the brother-sister bond, today it is so much more than the man taking on the conventional role of protector. Proving that the bond between two sisters is just as special is Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor.
10. Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt
Another sibling pair that is breaking barriers in Bollywood is actress Alia Bhatt and her sister Shaheen Bhatt. Alia is considered to be one of the finest actresses in the industry today. Shaheen, on the other hand, is a strong advocate of mental well-being and has also authored a book on her own struggles. Shaheen is also a scriptwriter and will be working closely with Alia’s production house, Eternal Sunshine.
