Genetically speaking, siblings are the closest persons one can have. Although they might be masters at poking fun at you, they can be immensely thoughtful when needed. While it is hard to imagine what our world would be like without siblings, here is a list of Bollywood celebs who vouch for the support extended by their brother or sister.
Zoya Akhtar - Farhan Akhtar
Although both are celebrated directors, Farhan has taken the plunge of appearing in front of the screen while elder sister Zoya has decidedly stayed behind. After having directed hits like Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya and the Don series; Farhan made his acting debut in 2008 with Rock On!! Zoya collaborated with her brother for writing lyrics of various songs and took up a writing-directing job in 2009’s Luck by Chance that also had Farhan acting in it.
Karisma Kapoor – Kareena Kapoor Khan
The Kapoor sisters have both ventured into acting and excelled. While the elder sister gave memorable hits one after the other in the 90s and early 2000s, Bebo has been reigning on the Hindi film scenario even today. Karisma’s Coolie No. 1, Raja Hindustani, Dil to Pagal Hai, Hero No. 1, Biwi No. 1, Hum Sath Sath Hai and Fiza remain to be unmistakable hits. Kareena, on the other hand, debuted in the year 2000 with Refugee and has gone up to become one of the highest-paid female actors in the industry today. Recently, Lolo also made a comeback to acting with her digital debut in Mentalhood.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja – Rhea Kapoor

The sisters also launched a fashion label ‘Rheson’ together in 2017.
Ranbir Kapoor – Riddhima Kapoor Sahni
Cousins of Karisma and Kareena, this pair of siblings is also full of love. While Ranbir is a phenomenal actor, he is also a doting ‘Mama’ to Riddhima’s kids. Riddhima has chosen to not walk into the glaze of Bollywood but runs her jewellery brand alongside being a big-time Yoga enthusiast.
Alia Bhatt – Shaheen Bhatt
Taking the name of Bhatt family ahead, Alia has proved her mettle in the acting field again and again with movies such as Dear Zindagi, Highway, Udta Punjab, Kapoor and Sons and many others.

Shaheen also came out to talk about her mental health issues and how her sister helped her deal with it.
Varun Dhawan – Rohit Dhawan
