For obvious reasons, to a generation that is obsessed with Game of Thrones it is not at all weird to know that there are some actor duos, who have played siblings and romanced each other on-screen as well. It is, after all, acting. Nevertheless, for Bollywood buffs knowing such interesting trivia is fun!
So to help you flaunt your Bollywood knowledge, we list a few actor duos who successfully managed to set the screen on fire with their chemistry, and also sold us on their portrayal of sibling relationships.
Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra
They have appeared together in four films so far – Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Dil Dhadakne Do, Bajirao Mastani, and Gunday. While they played siblings in Dil Dhadakne Do, in Bajirao Mastani and Gunday we saw them romancing each other.
Deepika Padukone and Arjun Rampal
They were not technically a romantic couple in Om Shanti Om, what with Rampal being a scheming, murdering douchebag, but they were paired together. On the 2010 film Housefull, Deepika played Arjun’s sister.
Asin and Abhishek Bachchan
Abhishek and Asin acted as siblings in the 2012 film Bol Bachchan as siblings, and in the 2015 All is Well, they played each other’s romantic interests.
Deepika Padukone and John Abraham
You may not remember the film Desi Boyz, but John and Deepika played a romantic couple in it. However, in the 2013 ultra-convoluted thriller film, Race 2, these two were siblings.
Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai
Shah Rukh and Aishwarya played siblings in the Romeo and Juliet inspired Bolly flick Josh, while they were paired off as a couple on the super hit films Mohabbattein and Devdas. And let’s not forget his cameo as her ex in Ai Dil Hai Mushkil!
Tusshar Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
Kareena and Tusshar were a romantic couple in Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai, and Jeena Sirf Mere Liye. But, in the Golmaal series they played siblings.
Salman Khan and Neelam
Salman and Neelam played a couple in the 1992 film Ek Ladka Ek Ladki. There was even a nod to this pair in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. But, in the 1999 Sooraj Barjatya film Hum Saath Saath Hain, they played siblings.
Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawla
Hit indie films Jhankar Beats and My Brother Nikhil had three things in common – great stories, Sanjay Suri, and Juhi Chawla. While these two played a married couple in Jhankar Beats, Juhi played the supportive sister to Sanjay’s Nikhil in My Brother… Nikhil.
Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini
Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini have acted together in almost 18 films. In most of them including, Naseeb, Desh Premee, Satte Pe Satta, Nastik, Baghban, Babul, and Veer Zaara, they were romantically paired together. But in the 1973 film Gehri Chaal, Hema played Amitabh’s sister.
Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman
Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman immortalised the sibling bond in the cult Bollywood film Hare Rama Hare Krishna. But, they acted together as a couple in plenty of films including Ishq Ishq Ishq, Prem Shastra, Warrant, Darling Darling, Heera Panna, and Kalabaaz.
Salman Khan and Daisy Shah
Another celeb that made a debut romancing an actor and later played sibling to the same actor is Daisy Shah. We saw her as Salman’s love interest in Jai Ho whereas in Race 3 she played the role of his sister.
