Bollywood siblings

Bollywood siblings sharing limelight

It's a fact that Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world. But on the same note, it can be argued that it is the smallest – based on how many stars are actually related to each other! Many of today’s cinema idols have superstar parents, like the Bachan’s, Kapoors, Deols and Khanna’s. Today, some of the hottest stars are sharing the limelight with their older or younger siblings – even those who are still trying to crack their way into the niche of Hindi cinema.

Kajol – Tanisha –

Arguably the center point of this family triangle is Kajol, with major hits like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995) and the crime-thriller Baaziger (1993), both opposite superstar, Shah Rukh Khan. She married long-term boyfriend Ajay Devgan in 1999 and the two have been concentrating on raising their family as they give the films a break. Daughter of Tanuja Mukherjee, Kajol’s younger sister, Tanisha had her Bollywood debut with Ssshhh (2003), a murder mystery in which she starred opposite Dino Morea. Her other films include Popcorn Khao Mast Ho Jao (2004) and Tango Charlie (2005). Her latest venture has been Yaj Raj’s, Neal ‘n Nikki (2005), opposite Uday Chopra.

Kajol and Tanisha’s cousin, Rani has also been ranked as one of the most successful actresses in the industry today. Her debut film, Raja Ki Aayegi Baaraat (1996) was just the launching pad of her career. Ghulam (1998) gave her instant fame and a new label as ‘The “aati kya Khandala” girl’. In a span of about five years, she boasts major hits under her belt starring across mega stars like Amitabh Bachan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan and has worked with top class producers and directors.

Cousins, Kajol and Rani were seen together on screen in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and Khabhi Khushi Khabhi Gham (2001).

Sunny – Bobby –

It’s no surprise that their father is the legendary Dharmendra, and Esha’s mother is the original Dream Girl of Bollywood - Hema Malini. Sunny Deol, born as Ajay Singh Deol made his debut as a teenage romantic hero in Betaab (1985) with co-star, Amrita Singh. Action roles are definitely his forte even though he tried his hand at romantic roles in several movies. Whether he is the romantic hero or the rebellious angry young man out to get justice, he has been a hit with the crowds for many years, attracting women with his suave attitude.

Originally named Vijay Singh Deol, Bobby is known for his curly locks and boyishly good looks. He made his debut in Barsaat (1995) with co-star Twinkle Khanna, for which he was awarded Best Debut in 1995. Sunny and Bobby co-starred in Dillagi (1999), with Urmila Matdonkar as the leading lady.

Esha made her debut with Boney Kapoor’s Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe (2001) opposite Aftab Shivdasani. Since then, she has been paired with some of the hottest actors in Bollywood and has big titles linked to her name, namely Dhoom (2004) and Kaal (2005). Despite being the daughter of superstars, Esha still has a long way to go before she can live up to the credentials of her distinguished lineage. Besides working in movies, Esha is also an accomplished classical dancer and a national level football player.

Karisma – Kareena

Also known as The First Family of Bollywood, the Kapoor family have held the film industry and global audiences in their magical spell for decades. Daughters of Randhir and Babita Kapoor, Karisma, nicknamed Lolo and Kareena, nicknamed Bebo have become the blue-eyed beauties of Bollywood.

Karisma broke her family tradition that no females were to enter to film industry, and soon she became one of India’s top heroines. She made her debut in Prem Qaidi (1991) opposite South actor, Harish. Despite starting out with a wild dress sense, she become one of the most stylish ladies in the industries – all thanks to ace fashion designer, Manish Malhotra. Over the years, she has turned out a number of hits, including Raja Hindustani (1996) opposite Aamir Khan, Hero No.1 (1997) opposite Govinda and Dil to Paagal Hai (1997) opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit. She is especially known for her vulgar dance numbers in micro-mini skirts and hot pants. Her latest film after her marriage is Mere Jeevan Saathi (2006), starring Akshay Kumar and Amisha Patel.

Kareena’s launch pad was JP Dutta’s Refugee (2000), which also launched the heir to the Bachan throne, Abishek. She can easily be described as a sultry sex goddess, which shone through in her role as “Poo” in Khabi Khushi Khabi Gham (2001). Kareena was offered a role in Gurinder Chadha’s Bride and Prejudice (2004), starring Aishwariya Rai, but turned it down. She is currently seeing teen heart throb, Shahid Kapur.

Karisma and Kareena have not appeared on-screen together yet, but they have definitely proven that sisters can be glamorous and sexy, even though each is as different from the other as chalk and cheese!

Salman – Arbaaz – Sohail

He is the brat of Bollywood and is best known for his public brawls and affairs with some of Bollywood’s leading ladies. Salman is the eldest son of writer, Salim Khan and step mother, Helen and claims that he hates the press. Despite this, he still remains one of Hindi cinema’s hottest selling stars – in India and overseas. His life changed after Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyaar Kiya (1989), and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994) opposite Madhuri Dixit. Salman has proved that he can play anything from an action hero (Karan Arjun, 1995) to a romantic (Khamoshi, 1996) to a comedian (Judwaa, 1997).

Arbaaz was recognized for his acting abilities in the thriller Daraar (1996) with Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla. He was seen in movies like Hello Brother (1999) and Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya (1998) with elder brother, Salman. Some of his recent films include Kuch Naa Kaho (2003), Garv (2004) and Hulchul (2004).

The youngest brother of the Khan clan, Sohail emerged from the shadow as being Salman’s kid brother after the release of Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya. In fact, Sohail and Salman have become quite a pair on-screen. They were recently seen together in David Dhawan’s Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya (2005). They will also be seen together again in Rumi Jaffrey’s “God Tussi Great Ho”.

Shilpa – Shamita

Shilpa Shetty is known as one of the most sizzling starlets in Tinsletown and has been noted for having one of the sexiest figures in the industry. But good looks aren’t only her claim to fame. Although she doesn’t have as many major hits linked to her name, she is well-known for her fiery dance numbers. Some leading actors she has appeared with include Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan in films like Jung (2000), Mein Khiladi Tu Anari (1994) and Dus (2005). She is also well known for setting screens alight with her sexy item numbers.

Her younger sister, Shamita, made a promising debut in Mohabbatein (2000), but has been doing a lot of item songs, namely “Sharara” from the Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai.

The two sisters were recently paired together in Deepak Tijori’s Fareb (2005) where they played rivals in love. Shilpa is quoted as saying: Though I’d love to be my sister’s sister on screen, I think it would be slightly awkward to play real-life roles.”

Akshaye - Rahul

Akshaye was launched by his famous father, Vinod Khanna who produced Himalayputra (1997). Everyone was curious about the new boy on the block who sported a charming smile and cute dimples that made girls go crazy! Despite his first film not doing too well, he was watched with a close eye by media mongers – will he follow his father’s legacy? Soon after, he appeared in JP Dutta’s war epic, Border (1997), where he shared the screen with stars like Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff and Sunil Shetty. His only real ray of hope came in the form of Rishi Kapoor’s Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999) and Subash Ghai’s Taal (1999), both opposite Aishwariya Rai.

He rejected a couple of films, including Deepa Mehta’s 1947 Earth (1999). The part was eventually given to Akshaye’s elder brother, Rahul in which he appeared opposite Nandita Das. One of Rahul’s major films still remains to be Deepa Mehta’s Bollywood Hollywood (2002) opposite Lisa Ray. He has also anchored the Filmfare Awards on various occasions.

Akshaye and Rahul have only been seen once on screen in Bollywood Hollywood, where Akshaye made a guest appearance in the film.

Mosilager said...

Sheetal said...

Yep - and you know, the only film I can think of Salman & Helen acting opposite each other was in Khamoshi (also with Manisha Koirala, Nana Patekar)

nice write up on Bollywood families

Thanks for visiting & for your comment :>

Al Nims Media said...

Fanaa rocked for three factors --Kajol, songs and breathtaking visuals. Storyline was a big letdown I would say. Kajol's energetic presence pushed Aamir Khan to obscurity.

Sheetal said...

kishor cariappa
What a disappointment for Aamir Khan fans.

Mayber my next post should be a comparison of Rani & Kajol? I wrote it around the time that Fanaa was released

Maja said...

Great post Sheetal :)
I haven't seen Khamoshi yet, but Helen also played Salman's mother in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

Sheetal said...

Thank you! Interesting..I didn't know about Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam...

Hope you're well :)

Sheetal said...

Hello! Thank you for visiting & for your nice comment... I look forward to seeing you again :>

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I have recently decided to find a good vendor of electronic cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and exhibit performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?
