10 Bollywood siblings who give us some serious sibling goals


Siblings are the best (and even the worst!) things that happened to us. You can call them enemy you cannot live without. They are the ones with whom you can share your happiness and sorrows and even annoy them 24*7. They are always there to support us. Most of the siblings are like Tom and Jerry but there are even some who are really sweet like a honey coating, making us wonder how do they really do that. Bollywood is itself a small world and Bollywood stars have siblings who often give us some serious sibling goals. Here is a list of 10 such Bollywood siblings.

Sonam and Rhea Kapoor
One is a fashionista while the other a fashion designer. One loves being in front of the camera while the other behind it. The common factor between the Kapoor girls is ‘fashion’. In May 2017, the sisters have launched their own fashion label called ‘Rheson’. Rhea has produced Sonam starrer Aisha (2010) and Khoobsurat (2014). Thanks to Rhea, Sonam slays her every outfit. Though Rhea opted not to face the camera she made her Bollywood debut as an assistant director for the film Wake Up Sid (2009).

Karisma and Kareena Kapoor
The Kapoor sisters never fail to charm us with their fashion sense, be it their gym visit or their airport sighting or attending parties. The sisters always know how to grab everyone’s attention. Hailing from a family that has acted, directed and produced in the Bollywood industry, Bebo and Lolo share an inseparable bond and are everyone’s favourite.

Salman has shared screen space with his brothers in several Bollywood movies. His eldest sister Alvira stood with him in every difficult situation, especially during the 2002 hit-and-run case. Public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat after finishing the arguments walked to Salman and said, “Salman is really lucky to have a sister like you.”
