Raksha Bandhan 2021: From Kareena Kapoor-Ranbir Kapoor To Huma Qureshi-Saqib Saleem; Five Most Popular Sibling Duos Of Bollywood
Siblings are the best and there's no denying that! No matter what, they are always there to protect us. They are the ones with whom we can share our happiness and sorrows, act silly and more. Speaking about Bollywood's famous siblings, there are many including Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem and more who always give fans major sibling goals. On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, here's looking at some of the most popular B-town siblings and the amazing bond that they share with each other.

1. Juhi Babbar-Arya Babbar: Son and daughter of actor-politician Raj Babbar and theatre aficionado Nadira Babbar, neither of the Babbar siblings succeeded in making a name in Bollywood. While Arya was launched by Raj Kanwar   in Ab Ke Baras, Juhi got a proud home launch by papa Babbar  in Kaash Aap Hamare  Hote. Both siblings are trained and talented actors, but just not lucky enough.

2. Huma Qureshi-Saqib Saleem: Another pair of gifted  siblings sharing the same profession. Despite admirable  performances in Bombay Talkies and  the web series Rangbaaz, Saqib’s career remains unfulfilled. Huma is  doing better. She was much appreciated in Deepa Mehta’s  web series Leela and as a quasi-Rabri Devi in Maharani. She will soon  be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s web series Heeramandi.

3. Sonam Kapoor-Harshvarrdhan Kapoor: Anil Kapoor’s daughter and only son are actors with different goals. Sonam has successfully pitched herself as Bollywood’s resident fashionista while Harshvarrdhan is a self-styled method actor struggling to find their bearings. They are as different in their career pitch as  Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

4. Janhvi Kapoor-Arjun Kapoor:  Siblings from different mothers, Janhvi and Arjun came close after Janhvi’s legendary mother Sridevi passed away suddenly. Now Janhvi can’t get  enough of  her ‘Arjun Bhaiyya’. Arjun in turn, treats Janhvi  no  different from his own sister Anshula. This particular sibling story needs a screen treatment.

5. Kareena  -Ranbir:  Ranbir’s sagi behna is not an actor. But his first cousin Kareena is. They are both exceptional actors disproving the myth that lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice.  Zoya Akhtar wanted to cast Kareena and Ranbir as siblings in Dil Dhadakne Do. But they refused to come together. Maybe some other time.
