What is Vidya Balan’s Date of Birth?, Today I was reading analysis of Vidya Balan’s birth chart by astrologer Sameer Upadhyay in daily news paper Hindustan. The point that attracted me is the time of birth. Sameer ji mentioned date of birth as 1st January 1978 whereas Wikipedia and Vidya Balan’s official website mention her date of birth as 1st January 1982. Recently the release of Kismat Konnection added fuel to her date controversy and it has gives me a reason to spend some time on birth time rectification/ verification.

After spending a little time, time used by Sameer ji looked more approporate to me and I made slight adjustment by rectifying her birth time as 10:25 PM (10:25:40 PM to be more precise) and able to verify many important events. I used Ruling Planet method in KP System for birth time rectification. From the Vedic astrologers perspective the change in time from 10:35 PM to 10:25 PM will not matter much because it doesn’t change rasi kundli.

Detailed birth chart of Vidya Balan can be found here.

I have found that Moon and Ascendant defines the look of a person. Moon sign lord is Mercury and Moon Nakshatra lord is Sun. Ascendant Sign lord is Sun and Ascendant Nakshatra lord is Venus. In totally Sun, Mercury and Venus will define her look. Sun gives majestic look and it adds ojas to the personality. Venus adds the beauty to it. Overall lagna and moon sign looks OK to me. Strong impact of Mercury in a birth chart makes one starting career early. Vidya started her career in 1995 when she was just seventeen it justifies her Virgo sign and strong impact of Mercury.

2nd sub lord Mercury indicates that she knows a lot of languages especially because it is lord of 2nd as well. Apparently she knows Tamil, Hindi, English, Malayalam, and Bengali.

Though Mars in neecha Rasi and strongly signifying 12th didn’t allow her to get any success in Mars dasa. Mars mahadas delayed her career. Her career kicked off after the dasa of Rahu. Unfortunately for her, Kismat Konnection released during Mars antardasa and this movie failed at box office. It looks like upcoming time is much better for her and we will see more successful movies from her.

As per this time, Venus bhukti under Rahu maha dasa has started from July 2007. How will be this dasa for her? Accordingly to classical astrology Venus is Rajyogakarak by the virtue of Kendra and trikona association. Lagna lord Sun is in 5th house with lord of 10th Venus constituting a powerful Rajyoga. Also generally Venus bhukti under Rahu mahadasa is regarded very good in classical astrology. Though as per KP, Venus is lord of 3rd and 10th in 4th. Due to the absence of 2nd and 11th involvement, I am finding it difficult to predict drastic improvement in her career.

Though there is definitely some positive. I checked the date of release of Lage Raho Munna Bhai and found that Sun was transiting in Venus’s start that time. We know that it was the biggest hit for her in her career. Which shows that if the improvement is not going to be drastic, still it should be significant. Also the impact of Venus will definitely add a lot of glamour to her and we will see more masala and mainstream films rather than films like Parinita. We have already seen this impact in Kismat Connecting where she played more glamorous character than before. Mercury is the lucky planet for her and it is the planet which helped her in giving successful movies like "Lage Raho Munna Bhai". Mercury antardasa will be there from December 2009 to May 2010 and it is the period where I see another blockbuster coming from Vidya. My best wishes to her.
