Actor Ssharad Malhotra says that he gives a lot of thought before deciding what to gift his elder sister Reema Pahwa. "When I got my first pay cheque, I had gifted my sister a smartphone. I still remember how emotional she got when she received the phone. I was so happy that I gave it to her. I have gifted her a Dubai trip this year," he says.Ankit Gera

While he was busy with his show, Ankit remembers that he took time out to travel to UK to meet his sister. "Most memorable gift to my sister was when I had gone to Manchester, UK, to surprise her on Rakhi. She loves chocolates and I gifted her a credit card in a box which was full of her favourite chocolates," he says.Sargun Mehta

Actor Sargun Mehta says that she loves the gifts her younger brother, Pulkit, gives her on Rakhi, and tries to use them as much as she can. "Last year, my brother gifted me beautiful diamond and sapphire earrings. I had worn them when I went to the Bigg Boss panel discussion. I remember getting so many compliments from people on the sets," she says.Aishwarya Sakhuja

While her elder brother Shyam has gifted her many things over the years, actor Aishwarya Sakhuja says that the gift she got on Rakhi last year was the best. "It is a gold ring shaped like a serpent. He told me since I was going to marry (Rohit) Nag, this ring would suit me. It was funny," she says.
