From Shilpa Shetty’s obsession of wearing two watches during the IPL matches to Akshay Kumar’s belief of leaving the country before his film’s release, Bollywood superstars are known to take the superstitious route to ensure the success of their films. Katrina Kaif, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Bipasha Basu, Shraddha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Ajay Devgn and Aamir Khan – all of these highly qualified stars are also quite superstitious in nature when it comes to their career. So, check out a list of top eight B-Town celebrities and their interesting superstitious beliefs.
Shah Rukh Khan: Starting from Shah Rukh Khan, we must tell you that the superstar seems to be obsessed with numerology. He used to follow the trend of having 555 on his number plates. The actor has a stunning range of luxurious cars and interestingly all his cars consist of the number 555. But according to the reports, the Raees star doesn’t take this as superstition, rather iterates that he is quite fond of this number.
Shilpa Shetty: If you might have noticed during the IPL matches, she used to wear two watches on her wrist. She was spotted wearing two watches whenever her team Rajastan Royals was on the ground playing a match.
Akshay Kumar: Known for giving one or two sure hits in a year, Khiladi actor believes that staying in the country before his film’s release is not good for the film. Recently, a report published by a leading daily revealed that Akshay used to deliberately leave the country at the time of his film’s release as he felt his films worked better when he was travelling away from country.
Bipasha Basu: While some of the stars believe in the influence of numbers, Bipasha is a strong believer in an old tradition of hanging ‘Nimbu’ and ‘Mirchi’ which is usually practised to deflect evil intentions or to ward off evil spirits. She used to hang the lemon and chillies combination every Saturday in her car.
Ajay Devgn: He doesn’t have any obsession with numbers, neither does he follow any odd rituals, but the actor has a superstition attached with the letter ‘a’ in his last name. His surname was ‘Devgan’ and he seemed to be quite particular about it. He later dropped the letter and now his name spelled as Ajay Devgn.
Katrina Kaif: She has a ritual to visit the Dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer and never leaves a chance to visit the holy place prior to her releases. She has been spotted many a time offering prayers. She had visited the Dargah even before the release of her film Baar Baar Dekho.
Salman Khan: You may have noticed, Dabangg Khan always wears a blue sapphire bracelet around his wrist which seems to be a lucky charm. Be it any public event or any other gathering, the actor never stepped out without adorning his bracelet. He is fond of his stone bracelet as it was gifted by his father Salim Khan.
Ranbir Kapoor: Like Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir is also obsessed with numerology. The license plates on his cars carry the number 8. Reportedly, 8 is Ranbir Kapoor’s mother and actress Neetu Kapoor’s birthday which he believes brings happiness and luck to his life.
Ekta Kapoor: If you have remembered, most of her serials start with the letter ‘K’, which many referred as her obsessions but the actress says that these are only her beliefs rather than superstitions. Be it Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii or Kasautii Zindagii Kay, all her successful TV serials carry the letter K. Earlier talking about the same, she was quoted as saying: “I actually don’t think I am very superstitious because I think I have very strong beliefs. It depends on how you look at a belief. If you don’t believe, for you it’s superstition. If I believe, for me, it’s my belief.”
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan: Celebrity couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan belief in numbers to bring good luck in their life. Kareena whose birthday falls on September 21, considered her lucky number 3 (2+1). While Saif chooses number 7 (6+1) as his lucky charm because his Birthday falls on August 16. So their cars number plates carry these numbers.
