Apart from sharing parents and toys, there's a lot more that siblings have in common. They share a huge lump of memories from the first fight, to the best laughter, and the worst cries too. Every sibling is a shoulder for another sibling to hang onto during good and bad times; which appears to be the same for every ordinary individual, or even our very own Tinsel-Town celebrities! There are several actors in B-Town who not only have siblings in the film industry, but have also shared the experience of working with them under the same banner. BollyCurry takes great pleasure in giving limelight to a few of those relations in honor of National Siblings Day.

Zoya Akhtar - Farhan Akhtar

Children of legendary screenplay writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar, and Honey Irani, Zoya and Farhan Akhtar definitely fit well to be named as one of the most desirable pairs of siblings in Bollywood. After the divorce of their parents, both sibling took support from each other and moved on, looking at the brighter side of their own lives. While Farhan directed his first, yet National award-winning movie Dil Chahta Hai in 2001, Zoya made her directorial debut with the critically acclaimed flick Luck By Chance in the year 2009, which starred Farhan as the lead protagonist. 

With this, everyone in B-Town became very much aware about the sparks that this brother-sister duo could create. Just recently in 2011, Farhan and Zoya worked together yet again, and brought out a mega blockbuster movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which not only received worldwide recognition, but also got Zoya to win her first Filmfare Award for being the Best Director. Both siblings have proven to be lucky for each other, and we at BollyCurry hope that they bring many more super hit movies for us in the near future!

Arbaaz Khan - Salman Khan - Sohail Khan

"Blood is thicker than water". This quote can surely be used on the Khan brothers trio - Arbaaz Khan, an actor-turned-director currently married to Malaika Arora Khan, Salman Khan, Bollywood's most eligible bachelor, and Sohail Khan, actor-turned-producer, the youngest of them all. The three brothers share the same father Salim Khan, real mother Salma Khan, and a step-yet-loving mother Helen. 

Salman has worked with both his brothers repeatedly in various movies, including mega hits like Dabangg and Dabangg 2 with Arbaaz Khan, while he did Lucky - No Time for Love, Veer, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya and numerous others with Sohail Khan. Despite seeing various ups and downs in their personal lives, the Khan brothers have always been supportive to each other and are frequently seen together at various public places enjoying quality family time.

Sunny Deol - Bobby Deol

Hailing from a conservative Punjabi family, Sunny and Bobby have fairly managed to create a name and identity of their own in B-Town, despite having an upper hand of being the children of Dharemendra, and his first wife Prakash Kaur. They've always led a rather simple life, even after there were various rumors about their best or bitter relations with step-mother cum superstar Hema Malini, and half sisters, Esha and Aahaana Deol.

Sunny began his film career way before Bobby's debut, but they still managed to live their dream by working together in not only one, but quite a few movies. Their last super hit venture was Yamla Pagla Deewana, which also starred their father Dharmendra, all three in parallel leads. The film received commercial success from all corners of the world, till the Deols decided to have a comeback with a sequel Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which is all set to release in Summer 2013. By simply watching this movie, one can easily notice the brotherhood between the siblings. If you are a Deol fan, you might also want to tune into the 2008 flick Heroes, which brilliantly portrays how deep the love and affection between these two brothers can be. They prove to be a statement of love, time and again.

Ekta Kapoor - Tusshar Kapoor

Who is unknown to television soaps' queen, Ekta Kapoor? Being the elder sibling between herself and Tusshar, Ekta is the joint managing director of Balaji Telefilms. She built her career in television first, and then moved on to productions in the Hindi Cinema, while Tusshar on the other hand, tried his luck of acting in movies directly. Ekta's memorable productions include Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, The Dirty Picture, and Ragini MMSWhere as Tusshar only conquers  a handful such as the Golmaal series, Khakee, and Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai- his debut movie.

Unlike others, these two have hardly shown public cosiness with each other. However, they have worked jointly under the Balaji banner in movies such as Kya Kool Hain Hum, Shor in the City, and the latest one being Kya Super Cool Hain Hum in 2012. Both siblings seem to be busy in their own lives, and do not prefer talking about it, but they are surely considered to be among the lucky siblings of Bollywood, being the children of Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor, as well as having quite a number of hit movies in their kit whether together or apart! And of course not to forget, their much-anticipated upcoming flick Shootout at Wadala, also starring John Abraham and Anil Kapoor.

Farah Khan - Sajid Khan

The comic duo? The cramp twins? Or the awesome twosome? Farah Khan and Sajid Khan have given Bollywood various colors to enjoy each season. They have always been an emotional support and strength to each other in all their movies despite having a seven year age gap. Both siblings have made their own mark in the film industry, but they call it a combined effort and appreciate the presence of each other every time and everywhere possible. 

Farah was first an ace choreographer, who turned into a director with the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Main Hoon Na. She then went on to other blockbuster movies such as Om Shanti Om and Tees Maar Khan in collaboration with her husband Shirish Kundar. Meanwhile Sajid, always worked as a comedian and actor, and later on made a step forward to movies. His second directorial Heyy Babyy proved to be a grand success worldwide, after which he went on to Houseful and Houseful 2, all three being classic box office successes starring Akshay Kumar.

They were last seen together in the popular dance reality show Nach Baliye Season 5, where they pulled each others leg, and fought like always where their opinions differed. Unlike other siblings mentioned above, Farah and Sajid share an explicit love-hate relationship with each other which is definitely adorable and commendable!

To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to our brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. Close to heart, and a pillar of strength to rely on. Other well known B-Town siblings include the Kapoor brothers: Randhir Kapoor-Rishi Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty Kundra-Shamita Shetty, Sajid-Wajid and the list continues! On this occasion of National Siblings Day, BollyCurry seizes the opportunity to wish everyone a great siblings day, and a greater year ahead!
