From Abhishek-Shweta to Hrithik Sunaina, we tell you why their bond is for keeps
Rakhi Special: The CLOSEST Sibling Pairs in Bollywood

When asked to say what special plans Abhishek Bachchan had for his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda for Raksha Bandhan ,  Abhishek Bachchan said, “We don’t need a  special  day of the  year to feel a special bonding between us. It’s there all the time.”  This  more or less sums up the way  most of the Bollywood’s most famous brothers feel about their sisters, whether  it  is  Shah Rukh Khan for his elder sister Shehnaz Lalarukh, Hrithik Roshan for  his sister Sunayana or Akshay  Kumar for his darling behna Alka

For  these three  star-sisters, life has not been easy. Each has been through major traumatic  experiences. But their star-brothers have  stood  by them  rock-solid dependable. “He doesn’t have time to be  playing  bhaiya-behna with me. But if I need him,  he’ll leave everything and come  to me. That’s the kind of assurance I  need and get from my brother,” Krishna Shroff says  about Tiger, whom she describes as  the most dependable  brother in  the world.

Actresses who are known to be specially close to their brothers  include Aishwarya Rai Bachchan whose  brother Aditya is  so close to her  that his child and Aishwarya’s Aaradhya have  grown up as siblings. Says Aishwarya, “My brother and I are very similar . But he is a very private  person which I can’t afford to be. We try as much as we can to keep him away from the limelight.”

What really helps the  Rai siblings to preserve their closeness is  Aishwarya’s husband Abhishek who is  not only very close to Aditya  but also ensures that the children of the two siblings meet as often as  possible. While Aishwarya’s brother Aditya and Priyanka’s  kid-brother Siddharth have  chosen to  make   a career and life away  from their superstar-sister’s  world,  Anushka  Sharma has  incepted a production house for her brother Karnesh which he looks after. Rani Mukherjee’s brother Raja is  also a producer .Wisely  Rani has chosen to keep  her brother away from her husband Aditya Chopra’s empire Yash Raj Films.

Mallika Sherawat and Kangana Ranaut’s brothers Vikram and  Akshit, respectively, are seen taking interest off and in their star-sisters’ career.  Manisha  Koirala’s brother Siddharth was  in  Mumbai 11 years ago to  follow his sister’s career in cinema. When things  didn’t work out in Bollywood for Siddharth,  he quickly gravitated  towards making a career away from  cinema in his home in Nepal.  Says Manisha affectionately, “Siddharth is  the most amazing brother anyone can have. When I was going  through cancer treatment he stood by me rock-solid. I have the optimum respect  for the kind of human being that he  is. I want to see him smiling every single day  of the  year, and not just on Raksha Bandhan.”
