No. Your brothers have no share in your wife's self acquired property or the property gifted by her father to her.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     04 October 2014

The property gifted by her father and a construction was made on her name by you  on your wife's name,  shall be considered as her own property and she only full and exclusive rights in it, nobody, including you can claim  a share in the property during her life time and also she is entitled to sell it or dispose it in any manner during her life time, your brother cannot demand the property to be under HUF, it is illegal.  As far as the property that was left intestate by your father, if your brother do not want to give your share, you may file a partition suit claiming your legitimate share in it.
