Shah Rukh made sure he dominated his little sister Aishwarya in Josh, though he was just a minute older! Not only was he overprotective of Ash, he even did the whole ‘beat-her-boyfriend-up’ routine in the typical Bollywood style.

Kareena Kapoor – Tusshar Kapoor in Golmaal Returns

More than a devout brother to Kareena, Tusshar turned out to be loyal to his brother-in-law Ajay Devgan in Golmaal Returns! Yet, the duo were cute, especially with Kareena’s dramatic antics and Tusshar’s frustration (not to mention his swearing) at being misunderstood.

Genelia D’souza – Prateik in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na

The hyperactive Genelia never got along with her quiet, sarcastic brother Prateik: Genelia had Imran and Prateik had his pet mouse. But when the brother-sister bonded in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, they made you realize that more than siblings; they were each others’ friends.

Juhi Chawla – Sanjay Suri in My Brother Nikhil

Juhi Chawla’s touching and sensitive performance of a sister dealing with a brother (Sanjay Suri), who is suffering from AIDS , was one of her best. Juhi kept switching from mother, sister, confidante and priest – all for her dear brother.

While we just talked about brothers being overprotective of their sisters, this time the tables were turned. Little Shweta Prasad was ready to bite Naseeruddin Shah’s head off if he tried to dupe her brother Shreyas Talpade in Iqbal. Shweta played the translator to her deaf-and-dumb brother Shreyas and his alcoholic coach Shah in the movie.
