India Today logo India Today 04-03-2017

Cricket is not just a game for Indians, it is much beyond that, a religion so to speak. When the Indian cricket team descends on the ground to battle, our Bollywood celebs practice a list of superstitions to ensure their victory. Here are a few.

Shilpa Shetty


Shilpa Shetty, who co-owned the Rajasthan Royals IPL team, is very superstitious as far as cricket is concerned. The Bollywood actress once admitted that she wore two watches on the same wrist at every RR game. Moreover, she used to keep her legs separate (and not crossed) whenever RR batted.

Amitabh Bachchan


Amitabh Bachchan stays away from watching live matches, since he strongly believes that if he does, the wickets would keep falling. His family keeps him updated about the scores.

The Bollywood baadshah and co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders has practised a number of superstitions for winning the IPL. SRK not only has a set of lucky clothes, but always brings his kids to stadiums. Shah Rukh Khan believes that his daughter, Suhana, is very lucky for him and for KKR. Whenever Suhana watches matches with her father, KKR end up winning the match.
