“I am not superstitious at all,” he said. But we all know about his obsession for numbering his cars 555.  Here is a look at the quirky beliefs of other B-Town stars...

Aamir Khan

He swears by festive releases. Post 2007, all films featuring him in the lead hit the marquee during Christmas. And they all set the cash registers ringing at the box office. Many believe that Aamir and his filmmaker wife, Kiran Rao, who was battling fertility issues, even timed the birth of their son Azad in the month of December!

Vidya Balan

The success of ‘The Dirty Picture’ left Vidya superstitious about the colour red. She even insisted on being featured in a red saree instead of the traditional green attire for a lavani item song in ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’. The actress is also apparently superstitious about using a particular Pakistani brand of kajal.

Katrina Kaif

This diva always makes it a point to pay a visit to the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer before the release of her films. She once drew crititicism when she wore a short skirt to the holy shrine to pray for the success of ‘Namastey London’. But controversies apart, we think the religious visits do work for her!

Ranbir Kapoor


Ranbir Kapoor regards mother Neetu Kapoor as his lucky charm. Perhaps, that is why his car number plates bear the number 8, which is Neetu’s birth date. Of late, we have spotted the Kapoor scion taking his mommy along for at least one of his many film promotions. Sadly, Neetu’s presence in ‘Besharam’ didn’t quite work for Ranbir.

Salman Khan

The sapphire bracelet on the right arm of this Bollywood heavy weight is his lucky charm. He considers it his ‘protector’ and insists on flaunting it on-screen too. Besides this, Salman is supposedly superstitious about releasing his films during Eid. And that trend started following the resounding success of ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’, ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Jai Ho’. But now the grapevine is abuzz with rumours that for 2015, Shah Rukh Khan has slated his film for an Eid release while Salman has taken SRK’s Diwali slot.

Sanjay Dutt

He is apparently a firm believer in numerology and considers 9 as his lucky number. That’s precisely why he prefers the number 4545 — that adds up to 9 -— on each of the licence plates of his diverse fleet of cars. Even star couple Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan like the numbers 3 and 7, respectively, for their cars, matching it with the total of their birthdates.
