Here’s another super crazy one. Akshay believes that the success of his films depends on him being outside India. He says that if he is not present in India at the time of the movie’s release, it will be a hit. Therefore, he always leaves India during that time.

Ranveer is often seen with a black thread tied around his right ankle. He believes that this thread will protect him from diseases and will keep him healthy. This practice dates back to his childhood when he was prone to falling sick every now and then. I hope this thread always keeps our Gully Boy on his feet!
Shah Rukh Khan
When it comes to superstitions, the king of Bollywood holds a different kind of belief. He is not known to be a very spiritual or superstitious person but this fact will blow your mind. Shah Rukh Khan considers 555 to be his lucky number. Every car that he owns has this number engraved on the number plate.

Top 18 Bollywood Celebrities: Aamir always releases his films in a set period of time during the year.

Mr Perfect shows that some superstitions can have strong logic and reasoning behind them.
Bollywood Celebs are often known to take up stage names. Throughout the history of Bollywood, multiple actors have done this to create a catchy or star-like sounding name.

Ranbir considers the number ‘8’ to be really lucky for him. He takes a page out of Shahrukh’s book and has made sure all his cars’ plates have the number ‘8’ in them. He often wears T-shirts or jerseys that have this number printed on them.
Some belief in numbers; some believe in names or some belief in spirituality but Duggu is on a completely different page from these celebrities. From his childhood, Hrithik has considered his extra thumb to be lucky for him. Even though it can be scientifically defined as a mutation in his DNA that has caused this effect, Hrithik could care less about the science behind it as he considers his thumb to be responsible for a lot of his success as an actor.
Like father like son, Abhishek’s superstition also revolves around Cricket. He believes that moving around or walking during a live cricket match can cause bad results during the game. That is the reason he never lets anyone walk around or move while watching an intense or important match.
Saif and Kareena Kapoor Khan

Bipasha has a very common stereotype that most Indians carry with them almost genetically. She hangs lemon and chillies in her car every Saturday. She believes that this will keep her car and herself safe from bad energy.
Shilpa Shetty is a huge Cricket enthusiast which is evident from the fact that she owns her own IPL team. However, it is less known that she wears two watches whenever she watches them play live on the ground. She believes that this ensures her team perform good and ultimately win the match.
Similar to Ranbir and Shahrukh, Sanjay Dutt also believes that he has a lucky number. However, his number is a bit longer than the other ones. ‘4545’ seems to be his lucky number and this number is there on all his car plates.

Top 18 Bollywood Celebrities: We have saved the best for the last. Where to start for this one? Let’s begin with her soap operas. She believes that the letter ‘K’ is lucky for her, hence she has named most of her tv serials starting with the letter ‘K’. Kasauti Zindagi Ki, Kyuki Saas Bhi Khabhi Bahu Thi, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, Kum-Kum and Kasamh Se are just to name a few. She wears multiple rings that signify that she believes in pseudo-astronomy, she wears a Rudraksha around her arm which shows that she is a huge believer in spirituality and its manifestation in the human body.
The dates she selects for the release of her serials are all decided after she consults with a numerologist. To leave this topic on a lighter note, Ekta in an interview quoted a popular meme about herself “Don’t mean to scare you guys, but Ekta has more rings than Thanos”. Although she faces trolls for her beliefs, she still is on top of her game and making non-stop content on Alt-Balaji. Yet, she is lenient to continue on with her superstitions.
Be it good, bad or absurd. Every person on this list is super famous and successful. Therefore, it is quite likely that some of the beliefs that these superstars hold might actually be true in some sense. However, that is a topic for a different day. Let us know what our next article will be about!
