Their sched­ules may not al­low them to meet of­ten, but ac­tor Saif Ali Khan and his sis­ter, ac­tor Soha Ali Khan, en­sure that they get to­gether for Rakhi ev­ery year. This year too, they will be in Mum­bai, cel­e­brat­ing the fes­ti­val. “We have never been the ones to have a huge cel­e­bra­tion. It has al­ways been about ty­ing a rakhi to bhai and get­ting some­thing in re­turn, apart from just a vow of pro­tec­tion,” says Soha, and goes on to share some of the gifts she’s got on the oc­ca­sion. “It (the gift) has ranged from just 10 ru­pees to some­thing very ex­pen­sive. It all de­pends on his mood. This year, his film has re­leased just be­fore rakhi. So maybe if it does well, he will be gen­er­ous,” says Soha.

Talk­ing about the bond that the two share, Soha says, “He is both pro­tec­tive and gen­er­ous. It’s the right kind of pro­tec­tion. It’s not preachy or in­tru­sive. It’s valu­able to have a male per­spec­tive, es­pe­cially when you are in a re­la­tion­ship with a man.”

Talk­ing about their bond, Saif says, “Soha is the nicest and kind­est girl in the world. She is down-to- earth and has the sense of bal­ance of our fa­ther. She plays the me­di­a­tor in the fam­ily and is fun to be with. She is my lit­tle sis­ter and I love her hugely.”
