The festival of Bhai Dooj arrives after a gap of just one day after Diwali, which gives a reason to carry on the festivities. This year Bhai Dooj falls on November 6. The spirit of Bhai Dooj is similar to Raksha Bandhan, as this festival too celebrates the bond between a brother and sister.

While a sister does 'tika' or 'tilak' of her brother, gifts are also exchanged between the two. The whole family gets together to perform the auspicious rituals and also celebrate by preparing different varieties of delectable foods.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, people are celebrating the festival at the comforts of the home with their brothers. As the festival of Bhai Dhooj is the best time to express your love for your siblings. Let's take a look at Bollywood's brother-sister duo and their kid's siblings.
