Sisters Karisma and Kareena Kapoor are related to a whole line-up of movie stars of all ages, thanks to their filmi lineage.

But while we know who their parents are (Randhir Kapoor and Babita), their grandfather (Raj Japoor), granduncles (Shammi and Shashi Kapoor), uncles (Rishi Kapoor and Rajeev Kapoor), aunt (Neetu Singh), cousin (Ranbir Kapoor), they are also related to a yesteryear actress, no one connects to the family.

This Sindhi actress was very popular in the 1960s, and gave us many movies to remember her by. Today, she lives a more reclusive life.

Can you guess who she is?

It's actress Sadhana!

Sadhana's father and Babita's father were brothers, making the ladies cousins.

In fact, Babita's father Hari Shivdasani -- a character actor himself -- helped Sadhana enter the film industry.

That makes Sadhana an aunt to Kareena and Karisma.

Sadhana has worked in films like Mera Saaya, Waqt and Love in Shimla.
