A SIMPLE RAKHI FOR THE ROYAL SIBLINGS
Soha Ali Khan and Priyanka Chopra talk about the bond they share with their brothers
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.”
