RANK THE LIST BELOW
What is the first think that comes to your mind when you hear the words “Bollywood celebrities”? Shiny racing cars, snow covered mountain tops, ah-mazing music, fashionistas? Well, Bollywood stars are in fact all of this, and more. The truth is that our beloved Bollywood personalities have literally become synonymous with glamour and style. Then there are the Kapoors and the Bachchans, generations of heartthrobs, with every single one of them with their own brand of fashion and enchantment and a whole range of successes under their belts. That is, however, not the case with the families and siblings of most Bollywood stars. Some Bollywood mega stars have siblings who couldn’t make it past their first movie, while some stars’ siblings chose careers and lifestyles that couldn’t have been farther from the cinematic universe. Then there are those who look so different from their celebrity siblings that if you didn’t know you won’t be able to guess that they are even related.
How many of you even knew that King Khan has an elder sister who likes to stay clear of camera? Shehnaz is six years older to King Khan and suffers from depression. According to Shah Rukh, she used to be an outgoing and social person but after the death of their parents she has become very quiet and reticent. Shehnaz never married and still lives in Mannat with Shah Rukh and his family. She has some facial features similar to the Baadshah of Bollywood, but that is about it that she shares with her super star brother. She is not comfortable with the camera and has not tried to enter the film industry even through a back alley of directing or producing, like this next entry on our list.
The brother of the biggest Bollywood star is a businessman. Big B’s younger brother Ajitabh lives and works in the UK and has been living in London for the past decade and a half. The two brothers are close and on amicable relationships, despite the fact that Shehenshah chooses to stay in a hotel instead of his brother’s whenever he visits London. Ajitabh has in fact contributed to a book of photographs and to a film that were both released on Amitabh Bachchan’s sixtieth birthday. There is little to no public information available on the only brother of the evergreen Bollywood King except that he has two daughters and a son, and one of his daughters, Naina, is married to actor Kunal Kapoor.
Shweta Bachchan-Nanda is the daughter of Shehenshah and sister of Abhsishek Bachchan but she did not seem to gather even the little movie success like her brother, let alone matching the saga of her father. She did make her debut for the screen through a television advertisement, but then decided to choose auxiliary professions around the movie industry instead of becoming an actress. She is an author, journalist, host, and a former model. While you may know and recognize her as part of the Bachchan family, she has not been able to garner much fan following. She also lacks the star persona that all three other members of her family seem to have in their blood. She married Nikhil Nanda, a businessman, in 1997 and then seemed to live an ordinary married life out of the spotlight unlike rest of her family. Shweta and Abhishek are on very good terms and the only thing that irks her about her sister-in-law is her time management skills. Other than that the family is very tight knit and supportive of each other.
Well these two sisters cannot be more different. Kajol is known for her Bollywood success as well as her eternal grace in her appearance and mannerisms. Tanisha on the other hand failed pretty quickly on the box office and failed to prove that she has either acting or styling skills. Apparently showing skin was the only art she could understand to join the film industry and that even failed to put her hold on the Bollywood fans. In fact she has made more news by going topless in one of the photos she posted than any of her movies. She has also been part of reality shows like ‘Big Boss 7’ and ‘Fear Factor-Khatro Ke Khiladi’ but even failed to put up her mark through them. Even in terms of looks she does not share that melting smile or heartbreaking puppy eyes of Kajol, and only seems to have the same lush hair. The best achievement she has to date is her status as a social media fashion icon dressing up in designer outfits.
This is one of the classic cases when two siblings despite putting in the similar efforts into same work have drastically different results. Faisal Khan is renowned to be humble and hardworking for his work, and supportive as much to his brother as he is to his costars. However, his success has not followed his personality. Aamir Khan has climbed to the heights of stardom and has made an unbeatable reputation for giving a super hit per year, but Faisal is still struggling through his career. The two brothers acted together in the 2000 film Mela, but that turned out to be massive failure for both of them. Since then Aamir has gone his separate ways in acting, although Faisal has worked as an assistant director for a few of Aamir’s films. There is not much guess from their looks either, if you know they are brothers you might see the looks but if not then from posture to manner of speaking to dressing style is completely different for this siblings’ duo.
Our Desi Girl’s brother has chosen the least desi profession for men – a culinary expert operating in the hospitality industry. Siddharta has done his culinary course from Switzerland and also likes to remain out of the spotlight. The duo shares a sweet bond which is evident from a single look at Priyanka’s Instagram photos where she keeps posting sweet little memoirs with her family members. Siddharta is Priyanka’s only sibling and they both are very loving and supportive to each other. He was also one of the groomsmen for Nick Jonas on Priyanka’s wedding. Not much else is known about the brother of the Bollywood’s sweetheart actress, he indeed lives out of the camera world.
Deepika Padukone’s little sister is a golfer. She still needs to catch up to her sister’s mesmerizing good looks but she seems to be indifferent to the media attention as she is focusing on her studies and sports at the moment. Although Deepu dropped out of her bachelor’s degree when it clashed with her modeling career, Anisha is one of those celebrity siblings who haven’t gotten the lust for the camera.
While the Aashiyui 2 star has never looked back since her outstanding success in her debut movie, her brother seemed to have much harder luck in the same industry. Siddhant managed to land a few films like Shoot out at Wadala, Ugly and Jazbaa but despite getting his chances he utterly failed to prove himself as an actor, let alone a star. He has been vocal about his intentions of not running after the 100 crore club race in Bollywood. He has also expressed his support for his sister and has always dismissed rumors of any competition between them.
The brother of former Miss World is an Engineer in Merchant Navy by profession but he married a fashionista Shrima Rai who herself is the winner of ‘Mrs India 2009’ contest. Aditya never entered the movie industry as an actor but he did dabble with film production with Aishwarya’s Dil ka Rishta. Both siblings have a wonderful relationship with Ash and her sister-in-law Shrima sharing the love for camera and celebrity status while Aditya steering clear of it every chance he gets, so much so that there is not a single photo shoot of the siblings and all that people know about the duo comes with their own social media feeds or personal lives captured through paparazzi.
Were you even aware that Katrina Kaif has a younger sister Isabelle who is as pretty as the Singh is King star? However, the younger sibling has gotten it much harder to get into the movies, especially in Bollywood, and also to make a name in the Canadian cinema as well. She made her debut with the Canadian flick ‘Dr. Cabbie’ but could not ruffle any feathers. The so-called Indian cinema debut film ‘Time-to-Dance’ has now been in the pipeline for over a year. So far we are waiting for her to get her break in the Bollywood movies, but apart from a few breathtaking photo shoots alongside her sister, we don’t have much to hope for as of now.
