Did you know that director Ayan Mukerji, who is gearing up for the release of his rom-com 'yeh Jawaani hai Deewani', is cousins with Bollywood diva Kajol? Ayan's father and Kajol's dad are brothers. Will the young director ever cast his firebrand cousin in a movie? Your guess is as good as ours!
Meera Chopra, Priyanka's third cousin, will be making her Bollywood debut in Vikram Bhatt's upcoming installment of 1920.
Prior to the release of Arjun Kapoor's 'Ishaqzaade', Sonam Kapoor tweeted about the first look of the film and added "My brother Arjun guys! Super excited...". She and Arjun Kapoor are related as their fathers (Anil and Boney respectively) are brothers.
Priyanka Chopra too is leaving no stone unturned. PC, who is very popular on Twitter and tweets regularly, has been promoting Parineeti on the networking site.The duo even have nicknames for each other. Priyanka tweeted… "I am so excited… May 11th coming up… Watch out world… for my sista!"
Another star relative who made her debut was Sonakshi Sinha's cousin Bhavna Ruparel. Though Bhavna has appeared in a music video and a few supporting roles before, was seen as a lead in 'Chal Picture Banaate Hain'.
The two cousins who have really become very close in the recent months are Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor. The two also share secrets when they meet at family dos. Blood, more often than not, is thicker than water.
But when it comes to Kajol and Rani, there is certainly no love lost there. The two cousins shared the screen space in Karan Johar's 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' as thick friends actually but don't share the same bond in real life.
The Bhatts are a close knit clan for sure. And Pooja Bhatt loves her cousin Emraan. This is evident from the fact that the 'Serial Kisser' of Bollywood is an indispensable feature of the Bhatt productions.
Even though these two hunks - Fardeen and Zayed - are cousins, their bonding makes their relationship look like that of blood brothers.
The Deols are by far the best Bollywood cousins. Though Abhay - the thinking actor in the Deol khandaan - has shied away from taking favours from his onscreen muscle-flexing cousins, Sunny and Bobby, when it comes to family ties they stand tall and are undoubtedly a cohesive unit.
