Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor is obsessed with the number 8 and believes it to be his lucky number. The actor also said that he loves the design. Not just that, his mother Neetu Kapoor also celebrates her birthday on the 8th. Ranbir had earlier said in a video, “When I used to go to school and would see a red mail truck on my way, I used to cross my fingers, shut my mouth and make a wish and until I saw three black cars on the Road, I didn’t uncross my fingers or speak a word. Usually when I was successful in spotting three black cars before reaching school, strangely all my wishes came true. And this went on for a very long time until I naturally stopped when they stopped coming true. My mom’s birthday is on 8th. I just fell in love with the design of the number and also the fact that can mean infinity.”
