Film actors and actresses are often in the news for buying swanky luxury cars, which instantly become the talk of the town among the media and their fans. However, some film celebrities go the extra mile to surprise their fans and stick to their beliefs by opting for specific registration numbers for their grand purchases. Here, we have listed some film actors who have chosen specific numbers for all of their cars in their collection.
Shah Rukh Khan
The “Baadshah” of Bollywood has an elite collection of cars, with a white Rolls-Royce Cullinan being the latest addition to it. The one thing that is common to all of his cars is the “0555” registration number. The reason behind this move is not astrology or his birthday but Shah’s fondness for this three-digit number.
Right from his first car to his recently purchased Range Rover, Ranbir Kapoor has the number “8” or “8000” as the registration number. The reason behind these numbers as the registration number for all the cars owned by Ranbir Kapoor is the fact that his mother Neetu Kapoor’s birthday falls on 8th July.
Riteish Deshmukh might not have an expansive car collection like some other prominent Bollywood celebrities. However, the limited cars owned by the Bollywood actor and son of the former chief minister of Maharashtra have the registration number “1,” which is considered to be the most expensive number for a vehicle.
The evergreen superstar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, has owned some of the most luxurious and expensive cars and SUVs, and the one thing common in all of them is their registration number “2” or any four digits that total up to 2, such as 1010. Amitabh Bachchan’s birthdate is 11th October, and the registration number “2” is just the addition of the first two digits of his birthdate.
Sanjay Dutt owns some of the most exotic cars ever seen among Bollywood celebrities, including a Ferrari California and a Rolls-Royce Ghost. All of his cars feature the same registration number “4545.” Sanjay Dutt believes in astrology, and the total of all the digits in 4545 adds up to 9, a number he feels is lucky for him.
Like Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor has also chosen a single number multiplied by 1000 as his choice of registration number for all of his cars. However, the number here is not 8, but 7. Shahid Kapoor has the number “7” or “7000” for his cars because his birthday falls on 25th February, and the addition of 2 and 5 is 7.
Right from his first luxury cars like Jaguar XJ and Aston Martin Rapide to his latest acquisitions like Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 and Lamborghini Urus, all the cars owned by Ranveer Singh feature “6969” as their registration number. The reason behind Ranveer Singh selecting this number for his cars is believed to be his fondness for the number “69.”
Among all the film celebrities in India, Malayalam actor Mammootty is known as one of the actors with the finest taste and choices of cars. From a Volkswagen Polo GTI to a customized Land Rover Defender, all the cars owned by Mammootty have “0369” as their registration number. This is why his car collection is popularly known as the “0369 Garage” among car enthusiasts in the country.
