In showbiz, relationships break at the blink of an eye. But there still exist some celeb siblings, who believe in sticking to each other, rallying for each others’ dream projects and being an anchor too, whenever possible. This Raksha Bandhan, let’s take a look at the famous brothers and sisters, who have stood by each other through thick and thin.
Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan
The royal siblings have taken acting as their career. But on one hand, where Saif Ali Khan has grown as an actor with time and has successfully created his own niche in Bollywood; his younger sister Soha Ali Khan couldn’t create the same impact on people. Talking about their personal relations, Saif as a responsible elder brother brought onboard his sister’s boyfriend Kunal Khemu in his movie ‘Go Goa Gone’. On the other hand, Soha has reportedly mentioned her relationship with brother Saif as ‘unconventional’.

Tusshar Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor
As all know Tusshar Kapoor made his debut with ‘Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai’ opposite Kareena Kapoor, and he was awarded with Filmfare Best Debut Award. But it was sister- Ekta Kapoor whose movie ‘Kyaa Kool Hai Hum’, which saved Tusshar’s sinking career. Since then Ekta seems to make it a point to cast her brother in her movies, for example in ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’, ‘The Dirty Picture’ etc. She also made a statement in an interview saying she is protective about Tusshar.

Hrithik Roshan is a superstar on-screen but his sister has proved herself to be a superhero in real life, by fighting cancer successfully. According to the reports, Sunaina’s younger brother was always by her side during her trying times – be it her separation from her former husband or her fight with cancer.
Sanjay and Priya Dutt
There have been many rumours that the bond between the two soured up, when Sanjay Dutt got married to Manyata Dutt against his sister’s wish. However, the two have resolved their differences. And like always Priya Dutt was seen walking in and out of the court with her brother Sanjay- who is currently serving imprisonment in the 1993 Bombay blasts case. In recent times, when Sanjay Dutt broke down in front of the media, it was his sister, who lent him her shoulder and pacified him.
