The relationships in Bollywood are as fickle and in contrast to the concrete and undying portrayal in movies. The ‘Aaj Pooja, Kal Koi Duja’ dialogue fits these B-Town celebs perfectly. But, it is not just their off-screen relationships that are hard to understand or digest. Their on-screen characters and portrayals are sometimes weird and funny too. Where else other than Bollywood (and sometime Hollywood too) would you find a couple romancing in one movie and playing each other’s siblings in another? Here are 11 such times when this actually happened.
1. Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra
Where on one hand they were dating in Gunday and then dishing out steamy scenes as husband and wife in Bajirao Mastani, the same duo played brother and sister in Dil Dhadakne Do and that too quite convincingly.
2. Deepika Padukone and Arjun Rampal
Deepika made her debut in Om Shanti Om playing Arjun Rampal’s lover and in Housefull she played the role of his younger sister.
3. Abhishek Bachchan and Asin
They played brother and sister in Bol Bachchan and then romanced each other in All Is Well.
4. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham
Before playing the cunning and manipulative brother-sister duo in Race 2, John and Deepika had played each other’s love interest in Desi Boyz.
5. Shah Rukh and Aishwarya Rai
Their chemistry in Devdas and Mohabbatein as much-in-love couple was amazing but their bonding as a brother-sister duo in Josh was quite good too.
6. Tusshar Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
Tusshar made his debut romancing Kareena in Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai and years later he played the role of her brother in Golmaal Returns.
7. Salman Khan and Neelam
The multi starrer family film Hum Saath Saath Hain saw Salman Khan and Neelam as brother and sister but this wasn’t the first time they were seen sharing screen space. Earlier they had romanced each other in Ek Ladka Ek Ladki.
8. Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawla
We loved them as husband and wife in Jhankaar Beats but then they played each other’s siblings in My Brother Nikhil which was another cinematic marvel.
9. Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini
Seems Abhishek followed his father’s footsteps in keeping this weird trend in Bollywood alive as much before him, Amitabh too played beau to Hema Malini in movies like Naseeb, Desh Premee, Satte Pe Satta, Nastik and most recently movies like Baghban, Babul and Veer Zaara but very few people know that they played brother-sister way back in 1973 in a movie called Gehri Chaal. Not to mention she also played the love interest of his best friend in Sholay. While taking about Big B’s films, these are some you can check.
10. Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman
They played siblings in Hare Rama Hare Krishna whereas they were in love with each other in movies like Ishq Ishq Ishq, Prem Shastra, Warrant,Darling Darling, and Kalabaaz.
11. 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 recently released Race 3 she plays the role of his sister.
And we thought only Balaji supplied us with the ‘weirdness’ dose through their soaps. It’s rather through these movies that we see ‘Rishton Ke Bhi roop Badalte hai.’
