Bollywood’s real-life brother-sister duos are not different from any of our siblings. They fight, but they can’t stay apart. As we celebrate the love and bonding between a brother and a sister on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, we list some of the most adorable brother-sister duos of the Hindi film industry.

Sara Ali Khan-Ibrahim Khan

Born to actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Sara and Ibrahim are among the coolest brother-sister duos in B-town. The siblings bond over their fitness regime and some ‘Knock-Knock’ jokes which Sara often shares on social media. In an interview with ELLE magazine earlier this year, the actor had revealed how coronavirus-induced lockdown brought her closer to her brother.

“We’ve never been as thick as we’d like to be. This pandemic has allowed us to be together. We’ve finally reached a point where we have the same interests, and we share mutual friends. Ibrahim is the smarter one you know. It doesn’t seem like it, but he is. He is the one with more perception and I take his opinion on a lot of things. He is a guy of few words and his words matter a lot, and he matters a lot,” the Kedarnath actor shared.

Abhishek Bachchan-Shweta Bachchan

Shweta Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan can be called the most classy brother-sister duo of Bollywood. Instead of calling each other siblings, they like to be addressed as best friends. They even appeared together on Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan where they spilled the beans about each other.

On the show, Shweta said Abhishek was Jaya Bachchan’s favourite, so much so that her eyes light up every time Abhishek enters a room, much like her reaction on seeing Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham. Abhishek said Shweta was their father Amitabh Bachchan’s darling. He wouldn’t care about anyone else once Shweta is in the room.

Ranbir Kapoor-Riddhima Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor make for an adorable brother-sister duo. The two are very close to each other. Once, Riddhima had revealed that in their childhood days, they used to have WWE style fights and imitate the wrestlers they liked. But, she also said that Ranbir is close to her and shares everything with her.

In an earlier interview with Vogue, Riddhima had revealed Ranbir used to steal clothes from her closet to gift to his girlfriends. She shared, “One of the funniest things he would do when I was studying in London, was to raid my cupboard for potential gifts he could give his ‘crushes’. Sometimes, when I was back home, one of them would end up visiting us wearing one of my belongings and I would be like, ‘That’s mine, right?’ making sure I pulled him up.”

Saif Ali Khan-Soha Ali Khan

For Soha Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan is one of the “coolest brothers”. She had once shared a picture of her star brother along with the caption, “There’s no denying you are the coolest brother I know. And there’s no denying I don’t know the first thing about being cool! #throwback.”

Sharing her opinion on a brother-sister relationship, Soha had once written, “It’s not the visible thread but the invisible bonds that tie siblings together – a shared childhood, experiences only they have had that have made them who they are. It is a bond, unlike any other and one that should be nurtured and celebrated.”

Arjun Kapoor-Anshula Kapoor

They sometimes cut it off even before it ignites.”

For Anushka Sharma, her brother Karnesh is her best friend. Though Karnesh jokingly said that it is sometimes “good, bad, very bad, torturous” to work with Anushka but he can trust her “blindly”. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Anushka talked about working with her sibling. She shared, “He’s right, it’s not all good, because somewhere, as family, you take each other for granted. When you have to speak to somebody from your workspace, you’ll be tactful. But with your sibling, you talk with no holds barred. So, sometimes, we end up fighting. But these are things we are both aware of. The good bit that comes out of working together is far more. Also, we are too close. If we didn’t have such a strong relationship, it would’ve been different. In our case, he is my best friend.” The brother-sister duo together runs a production company called Clean Slate Filmz.

Arpita often shares pictures of herself with Bollywood’s Dabangg Khan. She also gives an insight into Salman’s fun time with his nephew Ahil and niece Ayat.

Ekta Kapoor-Tusshar Kapoor

Just like any other brother-sister duo, even Tusshar Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor fought a lot with each other when they were kids. But as they grew older, they developed a strong bonding. Belonging to the same industry, the two are often pitted against each other, but Tusshar has made it clear that they “try to strike a balance and consciously try not to encroach into each other’s space.”

During their appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show, Ekta had shared an anecdote from their childhood. “Like every other sibling, Tusshar and I fight a lot. You will be surprised to know that once when we went on a family trip to Tirupati, we both started fighting for some reason. During the fight, Tusshar punched my nose. Later, I dialled the cops,” Ekta had said.
