  • Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor have to be the most successful brother jodi Bollywood has ever witnessed. While their chemistry in 'Silsila' was sizzling, 'Deewar' took the boundaries a step further and they came out with flying colors. 'Trishul' was another film which showed them in a different avatar of step brothers.

  • After the jodi of Amitabh and Shashi, it was the pair of Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff who were often regarded by viewers as brothers. The bonhomie between the two was ably translated on the celluloid too. In films like 'Ram Lakhan' and 'Parinda' they created magic together. The only failure which still haunts them is 'Trimurti'.

  • The pair of Dharmendra and Jeetendra was showered with much love with the audience when 'Dharam Veer' hit theatres but producers maintained a distance from them when it came to making them brothers again. In this Manmohan Desai directed (God knows which period) saga, the two played twins who get separated immediately after their birth.

  • The movie Race showed us how the rivalry between the two brothers can be explosive on screen. Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna did full justice to elements of blood kinship.

  • Sanjay Dutt and Govinda together were a complete laugh riot in David Dhawan's 'Haseena Maan Jayegi'. Sadly, despite putting in their best efforts in 'Ek Aur Ek Gyarah', the magic could not be recreated.

  • This time the two bad boys of Bollywood shared screen space as brothers. The commercial fate of 'Chal Mere Bhai' was a no-profit scenario but then too Salman and Sanjay Dutt managed to gain few more followers.

  • SRK became big brother to Hrithik Roshan at a point in his career when the film industry had virtually written him off after his successive debacles post 'Kaho Na Pyar Hai', in the movie 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'. SRK's presence was a calming influence on Hrithik. The melodrama salvaged his career to a great extent.
