Brothers and sisters are like street lights along the road, they don't make the distance any less but they lighten up the path and make the walk worthwhile...is a commonly known saying. Well, it's not just the saying but indeed a fact for many brother-sister jodis in the daily soaps of Indian Television apart from the many in reality. A close knit bond of two people in any form is beautiful, be it blood related or outside the family. One of the most celebrated and special bonds that is universally recognised is the brother-sister relationship, which is why the festival of Raksha Bandhan is observed all over, not just in India but in several places the world over. Indian Television has been gifted with a whole lot of talented characters who never fail to play the perfect brother or sister on-screen. ADC selects a few of the best known ones...
Shikha Singh and Shabhir Ahluwalia
Who doesn't know this well-known brother-sister pair? Aliya who is known to play negative roles very well, has even been nominated for being the favourite 'Dushman' or for playing a commendable role in 'Dard Bhara Rishta'. When it comes to being Abhi's sister in the show 'Kumkum Bhagya', the 30-year old doesn't leave any stone unturned in getting to know what's happening in her brother's life. Alia is seen as not very accepting of her brother's choices, but loves Abhi to no end!
Karan Patel and Shireen Mirza
In the show, 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein', Raman and Simmi's (Simran) the relationship may not be a unique one, but they share a bond that is widely loved. Like the perfect brother and sister, the duo are always there for each other in tough situations. As difficult as the situations get, that strong is the relationship of this pair. Their love for each other is as great as their fights!
Shubhangi Atre and Hardik Gohil
You may not recognise this sister character as Shubhangi, but you definitely know her by the name Angoori Bhabhi! Oh yes! Bhabhi Ji Ghar par Hain, one of the best comedy shows that can get you rolling on the floor with laughter! Laddoo plays Angoori's Jijaji, (brother-in-law), and as she fondly calls him Laddoo ke Bhaiya, which is why he is called as good as her much loved brother by the many viewers in the show. While Tiwari is often seen upto some or the other wrong doing, Laddoo never leaves any chance to let Angoori know what her husband does. He maintains the role of a good brother by ensuring that he is by her side throughout.
Disha Vakani and Mayur Vakani
Daya Gada and Sundar is how people recognise this adorable duo in the show 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah'! While Daya is known to be a very affectionate sister, Sundar too plays a caring brother on-screen. Just so all you viewers are aware, the two are siblings in real life too. Daya always has something good to say about her sibling, and so does Sundar! Having grown up together in reality, no wonder they manage to pull it off excellently well on-screen.
Deven Bhojani and Benaf Dadachandji
Well, the serial ended years ago, but this is one serial in which any of the characters can still make you feel nostalgic about most of its scenes. Gattu and Baby are a brother-sister jodi recognised even today! While Gattu was aged around 30, in the show, he had the mind of a teenager and was paralysed, which is why Baby had always protective of him and nurtured him just like her son. Though having a mental problem, Gattu too played a supportive brother. One of the many pairs who gave the viewers serious sibling lessons for life!
