Amitabh Bachchan Birth Chart


Here are the birth chart details of Amitabh Bachchan:

Date of Birth: October 11, 1942
Time of Birth: 16:00:00
Place of Birth: Allahabad

He is Aquarius ascendent, Moon, Mercury, Rahu, & Ketu are functional malefic. Jupiter is exalted, Venus is debilitated. At a glance, you will find that his 2nd house, 11th house, 7th house, 8th house, 6th house, 10th house are badly afflicted. Jupiter is very weak at 00.32 degree, whereas Sun and Mars are badly placed.

Rahu is sitting in the 7th house of marriage/association/partnership, 7th lord Sun is in 8th house, planet of marriage Venus is debilitated in 8th house. Ketu is also aspecting the 7th house, overall this combination suggests that person needs to be very careful with partnership or association, and his marriage will not be harmonious and could also head for divorce like situation.

8th house represents Marital Tie, Obstacles, Debts, Setbacks, Accidents, Death like Experience, Misfortune, Disgrace, Disappointments, litigation, and bankruptcy….you must remember that he almost went bankrupt with all his business ventures before signing ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.

His Jupiter is exalted but sitting in the 6th house at 0 degree. Jupiter is lord of 11th and 2nd house which suggests that he will have to struggle a lot to find gains in his life from 11th house.

6th house again represents Dispute, Conflict, Opposition, Litigation, Enemies, Debts, and Insolvency etc.

Jupiter being the bad lord of 2nd house suggests that he will have frequent problems with his finances, married life etc.

Rahu sitting in 7th aspecting 1st house took him away from home and family. His entire higher education was done in Jupiter Mahadasha and exalted Jupiter got him double Master of Arts degree.

However, there are a few interesting takeaways from his chart as in spite of having so many odd conditions how he earned the stardom.

His main planet is Saturn as a Lagna lord sitting in Kendra in the house of Venus and also aspecting the lagna from there. Moreover, Saturn is pretty strong in his kundli at 19.14 degree. Shani in spite of being retrograde or ‘vakriya’ in his birth chart contributed him a lot in its mahadasha. From 1971 (after completing 28 years of age), Shani Mahadasha started in Amitabh Bachchan’s life, which proved to be very auspicious for his professional front.

In 1982, during Surya Antardasha in Shani Mahadasha, Amitabh Bachchan was severly injured during the shooting of the film ‘Coolie’. There was a fatal intestinal injury, he remained in critical condition for several months close to death. Surya & Shani are both considered enemies and Surya is the lord planet of seventh house (marak) in his birth chart and present in eighth house (death) in his Kundli. Due to this Surya Antardasha in Shani Mahadasha wasn’t auspicious.

His 6th house is weak due to weak Jupiter and weak depositor Moon (being malefic) sitting in 9th house and 9th lord (Venus) is in 8th house. So overall, 6th house is very weak and 6th house represents intestines, this makes lower abdomen of Amitabh Bachchan sensitive.

His chart is a good example of astrological combinations of a good life. As how despite of having so many appeared bad combinations only few strong planets can make your life. Planets in bad houses may in fact save your life from mis-happenings. Also, presence of many planets in eighth house may not always be inauspicious.

Currently he is in the Venus mahadasha which will run through 2034.
