The star siblings you won't find on TV

We're in the Raksha Bandhan mood, and busy celebrating our brothers. And our film stars are doing the same.

We decided to celebrate the occasion with pictures of the lesser-known siblings of our Bollywood stars. Take a look:

Salman Khan and Alvira Khan

Now we all know that Salman Khan, for all his brashness, is a real softie at heart. He loves kids and dotes on his family.

What would it be like, we imagine, to be his sister? Alvira and Arpita Khan know the answer to that. Sisters to the three brawny Khans, including Arbaaz and Sohail, it must be quite a blessed life, considering the siblings seem to just adore each other.

The sexy Mallika Sherawat, as we all know by now, had to face severe objection and criticism when she made her career choice known to her family. Amidst all the drama and threats, it was only her mother and kid brother who stood by her.

And Mallika is still grateful for that. She's often heard saying that her brother is her biggest support system.

Mr Perfectionist lets his actions speak louder than words. And we know because we've seen him launch his dear sister Nuzhat's son, Imran Khan, in the movies with the fervour of a father.

It speaks great lengths about the bond that the two of them share.
