Not only commoners but even Bollywood actors have superstitious beliefs. From adding letters to one's name to releasing films on Christmas or Eid, there are rigid beliefs that our superstars are driven by.
Here are the actors and their superstitions.
Everyone knows about Salman Khan's belief of wearing his lucky blue bracelet. Apart from that, Khan also prefers his films to be released on Eid. He believes if his films release on that day, they will be a hit and will bring goodwill.
Katrina Kaif is very superstitious about visiting Ajmer Sharif – durgah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. The actress makes it a point to visit the holy place before the release of her film.
Shah Rukh Khan
King Khan also follows some beliefs which are attached to his fleet of cars. In all his cars, the numbers include a special serial of digits, 555. It is said that SRK refuses to own a car which misses these digits.

The release of "Taare Zameen Par", "Ghajini", "3 Idiots", "Dhoom 3" and his upcoming "PK", have been fixed for the last month of the year.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan believes three to be her lucky number. A similar belief is followed by her husband as well. Saif Ali Khan sticks to seven because his date of birth (16) adds up to seven (1+6).
Momma's boy Ranbir Kapoor has his mother as his lucky charm. The "Rockstar" makes sure that his licence plates should always have his mother Neetu Kapoor's birth date which is number eight.
