In keeping with the festival of the season, Rakshabandhan, here’s a look at some of our famous B-town siblings.

Abhishek Bachchan, Shweta Nanda

Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Nanda: Amitabh Bachchan's elder daughter Shweta prefers to stay away from limelight. She is married to industrialist Nikhil Nanda and has two children, Navya and Agastya. She and Abhishek are extremely close, and we hear she gets on well with Aishwarya as well.

Saif Ali Khan, Soha Ali Khan, Saba Ali Khan

Saif and Soha Ali Khan: Born to Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, the royal siblings have had a comfortable upbringing and seem to share a close relationship with one and another. Though Saif is one of the ruling Khans in the industry, Soha somehow hasn’t been able to quite land her big break in films. But, we hear Saif plays the elder big brother to the tee. They also have another sister Saba, who is a successful jewellery designer.

Ranbir Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni

Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima: Unlike her famous actor brother, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni rarely speaks to the media. However, in a blog for a news channel, the Kapoor daughter had recounted the fun she and brother Ranbir would have as kids including imitating WWE wrestling moves. We hear that Ranbir always makes it a point to visit Riddhima whenever he is in Delhi.

Hrithik Roshan, Sunaina Roshan

Hrithik Roshan and Suaniana: Though Hrithik is two years younger than his sister Sunaina, she says he behaves like the elder sibling. Right from their childhood, the siblings have shared a close bond and both claim nothing has changed even today. Hrithik was said to have been a big support to Sunaina during her battle with cancer.

Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Arpita Khan, Alvira Khan

Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Arpita, Alvira: We’re absolutely sure there can be no better elder brother than Salman bhai. Family comes first for Salman Khan. He has acted in many of his younger brother Sohail’s films and Arbaaz’s hit franchise Dabangg. When it comes to his sisters, we hear Salman Khan is a doting brother and is very protective of both - Alvira and Arpita.

Huma Qureshi, Saqib Saleem

Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem: Besides being highly talented, this brother-sister duo are known to be opposites in real life. Huma and Saqib share an apartment and have revealed in an interview that living together may be fun but it's also tricky. The brother-sister duo will be seen in an untitled film, playing siblings who have been separated at a young age.

Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor and Siddhanth: Bollywood villain Shakti Kapoor's children Shraddha and Siddhanth have ralrely spoken about each other. While Shraddha made her mark in Bollywood with 'Aashiqi 2', Siddanth was first seen in 'Shootout at Wadala'. But, we hear Siddanth was thrilled with his sister's success after the film.

Sonam Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor

Sonam, Rhea, Harshvardhan Kapoor: While Sonam Kapoor enjoys the spotlight and wins praise for her fashion sense, few know that the credit actually goes to her younger sister Rhea who is a producer and styles Sonam most of the time. The sisters also have a brother Harshvardhan who has made his debut as an assistant director in Anurag Kashyap's ‘Bombay Velvet’. He will soon be seen onscreen in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's ‘Mirziyan’.

Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar

Zoya and Farhan Akhtar: Twins Zoya and Farhan Akhtar not only share a special closeness but have also been successful in teaming up together, when it comes to films. Farhan, who is an accomplished director himself, readily agreed to star in Zoya's directorial debut, 'Luck By Chance'. They have also successfully two hits, 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and the more recent, 'Dil Dhadakne Do'.

Sussanne Roshan, Farah Khan Ali, Zayed Khan

Farah Khan Ali, Sussanne Roshan and Zayed Khan: Born to Sanjay Khan and Zarine Khan, Farah, Sussanne and Zayed have always put up a united front at events, supporting each other despite the news surrounding Sussanne's split from Hrithik Roshan. While Farah Khan Ali is a successful jewellery designer, Sussanne Roshan has made a name for herself in the interior decorating circle.

Sonakshi Sinha, Luv Sinha, Khush Sinha

Sonakshi and Luv and Kush: Not many are aware that Sonakshi Sinha has two brothers – Luv and Kush who are twins. Just as Salman Khan gave Sonakshi her big break with 'Dabangg', he also tried to help her brother Luv. However, Luv didn't seem to have his sister's luck.

Tusshar Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor

Ekta Kapoor and Tusshar: Queen of Television, Ekta Kapoor has clearly done well for herself. Younger brother Tusshar has had a few ups and downs when it comes to his career graph. The siblings have never displayed too much of a closeness publicly. However, Ekta Kapoor has surely tried to give her brother's film career a bit of a push with films like 'Kya Kool Hain Hum', 'Shor in the City' and 'Shootout at Wadala' among others.
