Test your bhai-behen quotient

August 19, 2005 17:35 IST
Bollywood has had its fair share of star siblings and films based on the bhai-bahen rishta.

Lately, however, films have started concentrating less on the brother-sister relationship, except for a stray Josh or My Brother Nikhil.

And what better way to celebrate Raksha Bandhan than with a quiz on the sibling factor in Hindi films?

1. Which Vivek Oberoi-starrer did his sister Meghna sing a song in?
a. Masti
b. Kisna
c. Saathiya

2. Which film did Saif Ali Khan's sister Soha debut in?
a. Rang De Basanti
b. Dil Maange More
c. Antar Mahal

Wrong!
The correct answer is B.
Did you know? Soha Ali Khan was born in Mumbai but shifted to Delhi at the age of six. She studied at the British School in Delhi, and later at Oxford. She did her masters in International Relations from the London School of Economics.

When Soha was 12, she was supposed to act in Mira Nair's Mississippi Masala and even took two months off from school. But unfortunately, she could not do the film as she had to get braces on her teeth.

3. Who plays Sanjay Suri's sister in My Brother Nikhil?
a. Juhi Chawla
b. Sweta Menon
c. Dipannita Sharma

Wrong! The correct answer is A.
Did you know? My Brother Nikhil was inspired by a real incident. It took debutant director Onir only 10 days to make the first draft of the script.

Sanjay Suri, who played Nikhil, was convinced about the film and they started putting together the rest of the cast and finance. The producers or financiers wanted changes in the script, and that did not suit the makers.

That's when Sanjay decided to put in some finance himself and look for private funding from friends and well wishers. When Raj Kaushal and Vicky Tejwani heard about the project, they also showed interest. Thus, Four Front Films was launched backed by four producers -- Sanjay Suri, Raj Kaushal, Vicky Tejwani and Onir.
