Having a sibling often means you have a best friend in the family. Your sibling could be your partner-in-crime, your support system, and sometimes even your biggest foe. Friction or not, the bond is special. From the good times to the worst, siblings have your back. When it comes to family, celebrities are not any different. There are quite a few examples of siblings who have made it big in the movie industry Kollywood stars have been very supportive about their siblings, despite being in the same profession No competition, no sibling rivalry, no bad blood here. Let’s look at some of Tamil cinema’s most popular celebrity siblings:
Jayam Ravi – M. Raja
A team that stays together, slays together. Perhaps, that’s the best line to describe the Mohan brothers. Born to editor Mohan, these brothers entered the film industry in 2000. While M. Raja’s is a talented director, Ravi found his passion with acting. Both brothers earned recognition with their very first film – Jayam. After the success of their debut project, M. Raja directed several movies starring his brother, Ravi in the lead. They’re currently enjoying the success of their latest film – Thani Oruvan.
Dhanush – Selvaraghavan
Dhanush may have debuted with Thulluvadho Ilamai, directed by his father Kasturi Raja. But, it is brother, Selvaraghavan’s film Kadhal Konden, that earned him recognition. The talented brothers have been a part of some cult films like Pudhupettai and Mayakkam Enna. Dhanush has time and again expressed his gratitude for his brother. It would be fantastic to see the brothers working together again.
Suriya – Karthi
Unlike Jayam Ravi – M. Raja and Dhanush – Selvaraghavan; Suriya and Karthi are both actors. And, they are both rather successful too. Although they have never starred in any film together, Suriya and Karthi support each other’s films constantly.
Shruthi – Akshara Haasan
Akshara Haasan hasn’t made her Tamil debut but is in contention to star in some big upcoming projects. And, we’re pretty sure she’ll make hearts swoon, just the way elder sister Shruthi is doing in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi film industries.
Vishnuvardhan – Kreshna
Another director-actor duo, are brothers Vishnuvardhan and Kreshna. While Vishnuvardhan could be a hotshot filmmaker with movies like Billa and Arrambam, his brother Kreshna hasn’t been too ara behind in the race either, if there was one. The actor is slowly cementing his place in the industry by starring in noteworthy projects like Kazhugu. The two have recently worked in Yatchan.
Shalini – Shamili
Its a well known fact that the two sisters began as child artists. While Shalini continued to act until she got married, Shamili has decided to make her debut in Kollywood only this year. The actress will be seen in a project opposite Dhanush. Now, that’s a debut!
Silambarasan – Kuralarasan
