Since samundra manthan track is being shown, Rahu Ketu track will also be shown, acc to Purans a asur who was the son of rishi Kashyapa and his wife simhika (one of daksha's daughters) disguises himself as a dev and gets to drink amrit from Mohini, and Surya and chandrma reveal his truth to mohini who then uses sudarshan chakra to behead him but since he already drank amrit his head becomes and Rahu and tail becomes Ketu and they both swear to always eclipse the sun and moon for eternity! 
Thus were born two of the most cruelest grahas in vedic astrology!Sleepy

Simhika was not wife of Kashyap, nor was she a daughter of Daksh. 
Hiranyakashypu, Prahalad's father had a daughter called Simhika. She was married to an Asura called Vipranchiti. Rahu Graha is a son of Simhika's and Vipranchit.

All Devas & Asuras are cousins too.
At some places Simhika is mentioned as Hiranyakashyap's sister. Even that makes Rahu & Bali relatives.
