No matter how much we fight with our brothers or sisters, we know that they will always love us and that they will always be there for us-that is the beauty of the bond between a brother and his sister.
The festival of Rakhi salutes and celebrates this lovely bond between a brother and his sister. On this festival, the sister ties a ‘rakhi’ or a sacred thread on her brother’s wrist and prays for her brother’s well being and health. The brother in turn, promises his sister that he will always take care of her.
To celebrate the beautiful festival of Rakhi, BetterButter brings to you some of the cutest brother-sister duos of Bollywood-
1) Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda
Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda are the children of megastars Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. Abhishek and Shweta share a great bond! Not only are Abhishek and Shweta siblings, but they are also each other’s best friends! Despite their busy schedules, this brother-sister duo always makes time for each other.
2) Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar
Lyricist Javed Akhtar’s children-Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar are probably one of the most talented brother-sister duos in Bollywood. Farhan is a producer, director, actor and singer whereas his elder sister is one of the most popular directors in Bollywood today. Professionally, Zoya and Farhan have even worked with each other. Zoya assisted Farhan on the sets of his superhit film ‘Dil Chahta Hai.’ Farhan has starred in all the movies his sister has directed-’Luck By Chance’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do.’
3) Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan

Rishi and Neetu Kapoor’s children, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni are another brother-sister duo that we love. The entire Kapoor family is regularly seen going out for family dinners together.
Ranbir absolutely adores his niece Samara! Riddhima herself has said that her daughter, Samara, has wrapped both Rishi and Ranbir “around her little finger”. Riddhima has also said that “girls chase Ranbir and he runs after Samara.”
5) Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor
Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor are the children of producer Boney Kapoor and his first wife, the late Mona Kapoor. Arjun and his sister Anshula are extremely close to each other.
