11 reasons why relationship with your sibling is crazy but special, a la Bollywood

Out of all the various relationships (zillion in case you are an Indian including the door ke ristedaar) we have, the most special bond we share is with our siblings. They are our first best friend, first enemy and first love too (don't get us wrong). If it wouldn't have been for them, even we don't know how we could have survived in our crazy families. You fight, beat the sh*t out of each other, but at the end of the day, you are always there for each other. You treat them the way you want, but if somebody else misbehaves with your brother/sister, they will be in for big trouble. Let's admit it, you sometimes hate them to the core, but there is no way you can survive without them. Even in Bollywood movies, we have seen the crazily adorable relationship of the siblings. Here are 11 reasons

“Will Choreograph For Dilwale If Srk Asks Me” – Farah Khan

Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan is currently in London for the 17th London Asian Film Festival.

The Happy New Year director today attended a choreography masterclass at the Southbank Centre and a sing-along screening of Om Shanti Om starring Shah Rukh Khan at Prince Charles Cinema in the West End.

At the master class earlier today, Khan clarified that it’s a myth that she worked for veteran choreographer Saroj Khan during the making of Aamir Khan starrer Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. In fact, Farah was assisting the director, Mansoor Khan, and only took over as the choreographer once Saroj Khan walked out.

Farah also recalled how the same almost happened during the making of the iconic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. “Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan called me from Switzerland and asked me if I can come the following day to shoot a song for them because Saroj Khan had not landed up on set.

I dont know why Farah Khan is after me - Saroj Khan
The iconic superstar of film choreography Saroj Khan is not amused at being targeted by Farah Khan twice over, once during a promotional appearance on Comedy Nights With Kapil where comedian Kiku Sharda did his trademark takeoff on Saroj Khan. And now in the film Happy New Year Kiku returns to do broad takeoff on the famed choreographer. Sarojji is neither amused nor flattered by the comic imitation. Upset but unwilling to let her hurt show Sarojji takes a deep breath and says calmly, "I want all rational media-persons to ask a question on my behalf: what did Farah Khan by getting a comedian to mimic me on Kapil Sharma's show, and then in her film? Kyon mere peeche pade huey ho? Shame on Farah, Kiku Sharda and Kapil Sharma for this kind of behaviour. What has Kapil Sharma got to do with me? Why is he part of this?

Soty is not Jjws or Mohabbatein Karan Johar
Almost four decades ago, Raj Kapoor, one of the finest film-makers India has produced, took a rather brave decision of casting two newcomers in his ambitious project Bobby. Almost everyone in the film industry was caught by surprise. A similar situation arose when Karan Johar, one of the most successful stories of our times, decided to cast three rank newcomers in his ambitious outing Student Of The Year. Like Raj Kapoor, after having worked with the biggest of names in the business, Karan could've easily signed any top league star for his new film, but he didn't. At a time when the industry bigwigs often complain that there's a genuine dearth of newcomers, not many film-makers have the courage to stick their neck out by launching films with new faces.

Idealism Lost

There was a time in the Hindi film industry when idealism was highly valued. From Guru Dutt’s Pyaasa to V. Shantaram’s Do Aankhen Baarah Haath, from Mehboob Khan’s Mother India to Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Satyakam, the protaganists were people who lived and died for their ideals. Their idealism was stubborn even though it gave them great personal pain.

Things started changing in the 70s when the hardships of stubborn idealism gave birth to personal frustration in the new generation – which found an outlet in the angry young man persona. At the same time, the hippy culture was bringing in a new wave of individualism. The youngsters of the era started turning rebels which was well captured by Raj Kapoor in Bobby, which had teenage lovers rejecting their parents authority and eloping. However the idealism was not totally lost, as the older generation held on to it. Film
