The relationship between a brother and sister is not very different from friendship. We fight, make-up and fight some more. On the eve of Raksha Bandhan we take a look at some best brother sister jodis on-screen.
Karishma Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan had an intense relationship. She became the head of the family and leading her naive brother on the right path was her agenda. Somewhere down the line she lost him to riots. The film is about a sister's search for her brother and his innocence.

She was his only friend but he couldn't compete with her friends who became her priority. He fought to get her attention. Prateik Babbar and Genelia D'Souza share a bond that many real life siblings go through.
They were twins probably with a difference of a minute. Shah Rukh Khan became the over protective but cool brother to his twin played by Aishwarya Rai. They spent all their time together... with no one to guide them and raise them, they became each other's support system.
It's a common knowledge that the elder sibling is always in charge. But their relationship was a tad bit different. Shreyas Talpade played dumb and deaf, while Shweta Prasad, ideally his younger sister became his guide to normality.
He loved his sister more than life. But due to family circumstances Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman were separated as children. As adults, when he finally finds his sister, he realises that he lost her again, this time to drugs. The film talks about how he tries to get his sister back.
Siblings understand each other more than anyone else, even parents at times. Juhi Chawla and Sanjay Suri shared an extremely close relationship. There were no secrets between them. When Sanjay was ousted from the community, family and swimming team for being HIV positive, the only other person still holding his hand was his sister.
It's okay to be with someone when life is bliss but what tests a person's loyalty is when they stick together during the tough times too. The film spoke about relationships between brothers, sister, in-laws and friends. Three brothers who tried their level best to keep their darling sister from harm's way.
Being protective is alright, but sometimes the same love knows no boundaries. Suniel Shetty loved his sisters, he raised them like a father and cared for them like a mother. But letting go did not come easy.
'Bade Bhaiya' (Arbaaz Khan) was Kajol's mother and father. To her his word was the ultimate decision. Arbaaz on the other hand was very protective of his little sister, he made her decisions for her and gave her the best of best things money could buy. Even the love of her life could only be decided with his approval and getting that is no easy job.
For the three brothers, Jyothika was still a kid. Any man (Akshaye Khanna) entering her life without their permission is a big no no. Their big heart could never find a fault in her or see her cry. She was their life, soul and their reason to live. A similar film like this is 'Anari' which also talks about three brothers who would do anything to keep their sister smiling.
