It's officially that time of the year when your television screens will be filled with commercials celebrating the brother-sister bond. Rakshabandhan or Rakhi is celebrated to honour the bond of a brother and a sister. The brother promises to protect his sister against all odds and so every sister ties her brother the sacred thread and then expects a small token or a gift in return. Raksha Bandhan is derived from the Sanskrit words and the festival essentially means "the tie or knot of protection".

When it comes to the sibling bond, we have seen some amazing brother-sister pairings on-screen. Several leading actors from have played a brother-sister pairing on-screen and have impressed us with their natural camaraderie. Here's looking at some of the best brother-sister pairings.
1. Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra in Dil Dhadakne Do
The Zoya Akhtar film had two of the hottest Bollywood celebrities, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra playing brother-sister. Ranveer and Priyanka's portrayal of Ayesha and Kabir in Dil Dhadakne Do was so natural that we bet it reminded us of our cool relationships with our brothers and sisters. The two were shown to be confidantes and stood for one another in their tough times like most siblings.
2. Kangana Ranaut and Chinmay Chandraunshuh in Queen
Queen had one of the sweetest portryal of an older sister and younger brother's relation between Kangana Ranaut and Chinmay Chandraunshuh. Despite being the younger one, it is lovely to see Chintu being protective of Rani. It particularly loves when he fends off Rajkummar Rao's Vijay who tries to force him to give him his sister's contact details after.
3. Prateik Babbar and Genelia D'Souza in Jaane Tu Jaane Na
They are the siblings who don't get along most of the time but that doesn't mean they don't love each other. Prateik Babbar and Genelia D'Souza's Aditi and Amit were the total manic brother-sister who would fight like children but were also each other's best friends. We loved this duo in Jaane Tu Jaane Na.
4. Farhan Akhtar and Divya Dutta in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag retold the story of Indian athlete Milkha Singh and starred Farhan Akhtar in the lead role. The role of his sister was played by Divya Dutta in the film. Some of the film's biggest emotional moments were between this brother-sister pairing. We bet you held back your tears in the scene where Milkha returns from his time in the Army wearing a uniform while his sister gets emotional looking at her younger brother all accomplished.
5. Sushant Singh Rajput and Amrita Puri in Kai Po Che
In Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che, we see Sushant Singh Rajput and Amrita Puri playing Ishaan and Vidya, one of the coolest brother-sister pairings we have seen on-screen. They are the kind of siblings who enjoy catching the match together. After Ishaan gets upset with his family not being supportive of his Cricketing dreams, it is Vidya who stands by him and it was lovely to see the duo perform this well in the film.
