*Knocks on wood thrice*


Black cars, red mail trucks, and pillows facing a particular direction or a tub of popcorn!

These are not the lyrics of a Lil Pump song but a few of the bizarre superstitions in Bollywood.

Actor Sonam Kapoor seems to have inspired her friends and family to reveal their lucky charms or just quirky superstitions aka ‘The Zoya Factor’ in time for the movie that releases Friday. With the Saturn, Mercury retrogrades as well as Friday 13th well behind us, if you are still feeling a little under the weather, check out these celeb-approved talismans to get some blessings headed your way.

Alia Bhatt

Remember when Paulo Coelho, and later Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om, said - When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it? Well, turns out Alia truly stands by this law of attraction.

Ranbir Kapoor

Meanwhile, Ranbir has more of a car-enthusiast approach towards talismans. His lucky wheels? 3 black cars, a red postal truck and of course, his mom Neetu Kapoor's birth date. 

Varun Dhawan

Bollywood’s very own lucky-charm, Varun Dhawan, has a lucky routine that is hands-down the best on this list! Well, it does involve a tub of caramel popcorn at PVR, to say the least.

Twinkle Khanna

Mrs Funnybones does not think of messing the Vastu of your bedroom as a laughing matter. And, her son, Aarav, found out the hard way!

Arjun Kapoor

While Arjun may be winning Instagram with his adorable #Throwback posts about his sisters, it may be a tad difficult for him to follow his lucky ritual involving remote controls, one of the biggest bone of contention among siblings.

Lastly, Karan Johar

Like a wise owl, KJo has *mic drop* talisman to end all lucky charms - self-belief! After all, isn't it easier if you are your own lucky charm?
