Bollywood has given us some memorable characters and some popular on-screen duos. One of these duos is the on-screen relationship between two brothers. So here are some of the best on-screen brothers of Bollywood!
1) Salman Khan and Mohnish Behl in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
Who can forget this on-screen brother duo? Salman Khan played the role of Prem, the younger and naughty brother who is gradually learning the ropes of the business from his elder brother, Rajesh played by Mohnish Behl. The fun camaraderie between these two was a sight for sore eyes! This on-screen relationship turned into a real-life friendship between Salman and Mohnish. If rumours are to be believed, Salman Khan will be launching Mohnish Behl’s daughter in Bollywood soon.
2) Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Mohnish Behl in Hum Saath Saath Hain
Hum Saath Saath Hain was another beautiful film that showcased and celebrated the bond between three brothers. A typical Sooraj Barjatya film, the film showed us the importance of family and how, despite the usual scheming, the bond between the three brothers and the entire family remains as strong as ever.
3) Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan in Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham
A beautiful family drama from the house of Dharma, this film still remains one of the most popular and most loved films of Bollywood. Rohan’s (Hrithik Roshan) quest to bring his elder brother Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) back to the family after the latter’s argument with his father (Amitabh Bachchan) about the girl he marries, never fails to bring tears to our eyes.
4) Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff in Ram Lakhan
Another favourite film of Bollywood, Ram Lakhan showcased the good boy-bad boy relationship between two brothers. Despite being 20 years old, this film still remains one of the most popular films of Bollywood. Even today, wherever he goes, Anil Kapoor always does the famous ‘My Name is Lakhan’ step for his family of fans.
5) Siddharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan in Kapoor & Sons
Another family film produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Kapoor & Sons was one of the first films that showed the reality of family life in India. Rather than showing a perfect family, this film showcased the insecurities and jealousies that exist within a family. Fawad Khan played the role of the perfect brother whereas Siddharth Malhotra played the insecure brother, who always remains in the shadow of his successful elder brother-until the family realises that their perfect elder son is actually gay! Backed by exceptional performances by the cast and a strong storyline, this movie gave a real-life insight into the relationship between two brothers.
