They are constantly in the limelight, but our superstars have secrets too. And by secrets, we mean really hilarious quirks. While some enjoy checking themselves out in the mirror constantly, others insist on checking out the bathroom at every hotel suite they stay before checking in. Here are the top eight.
1. Amitabh Bachchan
It’s well known among industry insiders that Bachchan never sits on just one chair. He piles one on top of another and could sit on two or three chairs at a time. Also, there’s a rule in his house that whoever reads the newspaper has to sign on top of it, so that Bachchan knows who has read it. But the next one takes the cake. If his son (Abhishek) and daughter-in-law (Aishwarya) are not in town, he will wear two wristwatches to keep track of time in the cities they are in.
Turns out, Aamir is slightly self-obsessed. The actor checks his Body Mass Index (BMI) every morning before he sits for breakfast. He needs to sport a lean look for his next film and wants to know whether his diet is working for him or not.
3. Preity Zinta
The actor suffers from the most common type of OCD, the cleanliness one. She must have a toilet that is spick and span. It is the first thing that she checks out when she books a hotel suite. She also likes to jazz up her bathroom with aromatic candles. Even in her house, she makes sure that her washroom is sparkling.
4. Kareena Kapoor
A couple of years ago, when Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor were guests on a celebrity chat show, Saif mentioned that every time Kareena gets ready to leave the house, she looks into the mirror and smiles at herself. Kareena explained that she does this to find out how she looks to the world when she smiles.
5. Priyanka Chopra
The former Miss World likes things to be kept in place. Even if a pin is not in the right place, she freaks out. Every item in her house is just in the right place.
6. Ranbir Kapoor
When the actor sees a red mail van on the road, he makes a wish, crosses his fingers and doesn’t speak a word till he sees three black cars. And if someone tries to chat with him, Ranbir doesn’t respond, and at times, even pretends he’s asleep.
7. Deepika Padukone
The star has an OCD about keeping her things organised. She freaks out when her surroundings are untidy and chaotic. This obsession is so extreme that she even helps clean her friends’ homes. She likes everything to be well-organised in her house.
8. Ayushmann Khurrana
The actor carries a dental kit wherever he goes and brushes his teeth three to four times a day. He also washes his hands several times a day. He prefers his hands and nails to be clean and tidy at all times.
