With this month’s big release Dil Dhadakne Do, Zoya Akhtar showcases a brother-sister relationship in a fun and peppy manner on the big screen. On that note, take a look at some of the star siblings in B-town and what equation they share…
Farhan & Zoya Akhtar
This one’s a massively talented brother-sister duo. On one hand Farhan Akhtar is multi talented (director, producer, actor and singer) and on the other Zoya is a critically acclaimed director. Her recent film Dil Dhadakne Do revolves around a brother-sister relationship and also stars Farhan, who is a part of all of Zoya’s films infact he even wrote the dialogues for ZNMD.
Arbaaz, Salman, Sohail & Arpita Khan
Arpita is the Khan family’s princess. She is close to all her brothers but is closest to Salman Khan. Last year the Khan family had a grand destination wedding for her and Salman also gifted his little beloved sister a Rolls Royce.
Farah & Sajid Khan
This one’s a crazy combination. Farah and Sajid Khan both have a great sense of humour and they are always seen taking potshots at each other and their films. Both are directors and are infamously known for their madcap mindless comedies.
Saif, Saba & Soha Ali Khan
Tinsel town’s royal siblings – Saif, Saba and Soha are kids of late Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi and evergreen actress Sharmila Tagore. While Saif and Soha got hooked to showbiz, Saba ventured into jewellery designing. Their camaraderie is bang on.
Abhishek Bachchan & Shweta Nanda
While junior Bachchan followed his parents’ footsteps and entered showbiz, Shweta strictly shuns away from it. She’s married to industrialist Nikhil Nanda. Mother of two teenage kids, Shweta is regarded as the most knowledgeable person in the family by the Bachchan clan. In 2010, she made an appearance on Koffee With Karan with father Amitabh Bachchan. Nowadays, she’s often seen partying with the likes of Karan Johar and Gauri Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan & Shehnaz Lala Rukh
Well until a few years, not many knew that Shah Rukh Khan has an elder sister named Shahnaz Lala Rukh who lives with him. She was never seen in public before and the only pictures the media had of her were a few childhood pictures of her and Shah Rukh. But surprisingly she made a public appearance during the auspicious occasion of Eid in 2013 as the entire Khan family posed for the shutterbugs.
Ranbir Kapoor & Riddhima Kapoor Sahani
One look at Ridhima is enough to state that she’s definitely superstar material. But instead of making the obvious choice of becoming a film star like her brother Ranbir or cousins Karisma and Kareena, this Kapoor damsel decided to stay away from the movie business. Ridhima is a designer by profession and is married to a businessman. She also has a daughter Samara who is her uncle Ranbir’s dearest.
Sonam, Rhea & Harshvardhan Kapoor
Movies run in their blood. While Sonam has emerged as a star and fashionista in tinsel town, Rhea has made her presence felt on the production and fashion styling front. And brother Harsh is not far behind. The Kapoor lad is all set for his dream debut in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s Mirziya. Sonam has time and again expressed her excitement about her little brother’s debut.
Hrithik & Sunaina Roshan
Hrithik Roshan says that his sister Sunaina is a bigger superhero than him playing one on the big screen. Sunaina has fought battles like cancer and other several other issues in life. Both Hrithik and Sunaina have said that they are each other’s biggest pillars of support.
Sonakshi Luv & Kush Sinha
Sonakshi Sinha is a darling sister of two elder twin brothers – Luv and Kush. While Sonakhi kick started her career with a bang opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg, brother Luv’s debut film Sadiyaan was a total washout. Apparently, Sonakshi is planning to produce a film under their home banner that might star Luv.
Ekta & Tusshar Kapoor
Younger sister Ekta Kapoor is television’s queen when it comes to producing and she’s having a great run at movies as well and brother Tushaar has had a fluctuating career in Bollywood. After failing to leave a mark as a solo hero, Tushar is now mostly seen in multi-starrers.
