Meet Salman Khan's filmi Bhais
From Farooque Sheikh to Shah Rukh Khan.
Bollywood's most loved Bhai, Salman Khan has a few Bhais of his own.
No, we're not talking about his real life brothers Arbaaz and Sohail.
Many actors -- from Farooque Sheikh to Shah Rukh Khan -- have played Salman's brother on screen, and the films have enjoyed various degrees of success.
With Neil Nitin Mukesh entering Salman's long list of onscreen brothers, we look at Salman's filmi bhais.
Neil Nitin Mukesh (Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo)
It would be interesting to see how Neil stands up to bade bhaiya Salman Khan in Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo.
While it is obvious that Salman is playing Prem in the film, the buzz is that Neil plays Ratan.
So far, everyone is tight-lipped about the film's plot.
It will be interesting to see what spin filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya gives to their brotherly bond.

Shah Rukh Khan (Karan Arjun)
Before their cold war, Salman and Shah Rukh Khan shared a brotherly relationship off screen, as well as on.
Director Rakesh Roshan brought them together in Karan Arjun, and the film went on to become a blockbuster.

Arbaaz Khan (Dabangg, Dabangg 2)
Though Arbaaz Khan had shared screen space with Salman Khan in Hello Brother, the real life brothers had never played screen siblings before.
Even in the Dabangg movies, they played half-brothers who shared a love-hate relationship.

Sohail Khan (Veer)
Sohail Khan has directed Salman Khan in a few films but playing onscreen siblings had to wait a while.
It eventually happened almost a decade after Sohail turned actor.
The film was Veer, which unfortunately turned out to be a mess.
The Khan brothers tried hard to instill some camaraderie in their on-screen relationship but to no avail.

Sanjay Dutt (Chal Mere Bhai)
In the series of films that David Dhawan made with Salman Khan, the big disappointment was Chal Mere Bhai.
Off screen, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt are pretty much brothers-in-arms, so it seemed right to bring them together on screen.
With Karisma Kapoor as the leading lady, the film looked fantastic on paper.
But the film turned out to be terribly clichéd, and the Salman-Sanjay combo couldn't save it.

Mohnish Behl (Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!, Hum Saath Saath Hai)
When Salman Khan and Mohnish Behl played the perfect brothers in Hum Aapke Hai Koun...!, many were surprised. Reason? Behl played a great villain to Khan's hero in Sooraj Barjatya's debut film and blockbuster, Maine Pyaar Kiya.
They went on to play brothers once again in Hum Saath Saath Hai.

Saif Ali Khan (Hum Saath Saath Hain)
Mohnish Behl wasn't the only brother Salman had in the family drama Hum Saath Saath Hai.
Saif Ali Khan joined the proceedings, as the exuberant brother, who was romancing Karisma Kapoor.
Neelam played their sister.

Atul Agnihotri (Veergati)
Many years ago, in the 1995 film Veergati, Salman Khan played elder brother to (brother-in-law) Atul Agnihotri.
In the film, the two weren't biologically related but they were raised in the same family by a caring father.
An action drama, Veergati did not do well at the box office back then but its DVD sales did quite well.

Salman Khan (Judwaa)
Salman Khan played his own brother in Judwaa!
The David Dhawan film required that the siblings be separated at birth.
The film was a laugh riot, and Salman played the contrasting parts brilliantly. So we had one sophisticated and slightly shy Salman while the other was a tapori with a fascination with a girl's derriere.
