Dilip Kumar topped the Google search charts on November, 24 2014 with more than fifty thousand searches to his name that day as the rumors spread about his health.
Rumors related to the demise of Dilip Kumar went so viral that actors like Amitabh Bachchan had to come forward to announce the well being of Dilip Kumar. This is not for the first time. Few weeks ago a lady in our office said that she heard about the death of Lata Mangeshkar which we all discarded as the news channels had none such news.
Dilip Kumar was born on 11th December, 1922 in Peshawar (Pakistan) at 11:15 AM. Horoscope of Dilip Kumar hence comes out as follows: -
As per the above mentioned horoscope of Dilip Kumar, it is currently Mercury-Venus Period. Would Mercury or Venus present a threat to Dilip Kumar’s health? Venus is a yogkaraka planet here and Mercury is the sixth house lord as well as ninth house lord.
Saturn in Scorpio, Mars in Capricorn, Jupiter in Capricorn and Rahu/Ketu in Virgo/Pisces are in transit at present. The bigger question in my mind however at this time is: -
Does this look like the horoscope of Dilip Kumar?
Numerous legendary actors were inspired by this legendary actor including the greats of Dharmendra and Rajendra Kumar. Venus (retrograde) is in Scorpio under the aspect of Saturn. Ninth house is under the influence of three malefic planets. Both Venus and Mercury are under the aspect of Mars afflicted Saturn. I am doubtful if this is the correct horoscope of Dilip Kumar.
To this, there are three interesting points: -
i) Dilip Kumar was in two affairs viz., with Kamini Kaushal and Madhubala
ii) Married Saira Banu in 1966 (at the age of 44) – October 11, 1966 as internet says
iii) Married again in 1980 but the marriage didn’t last long
Yoga for delayed marriage to some extent is apparent in this horoscope. Marriage under Rahu-Ketu period with Saira Banu is interesting. Transits however favored marriage during that time but that could happen for more than one ascendant at a time. Who knows if this is the correct horoscope of Dilip Kumar?

ज्योतिष सदा से ही मेरा प्रिय विषय रहा है. अपने अभी तक के जीवन में मुझे इस क्षेत्र से जुड़े बहुत से लोगों के विचार जानने का अवसर मिला. सौभाग्यवश ऐसे भी कई लोगों से मिला जिन्हें इस क्षेत्र में विश्वास ही नहीं था. फ्यूचरपॉइंट संस्था (दिल्ली) से भी बहुत कुछ सीखा और अपने पिताजी से तो अभी भी यदा कदा सीखते ही रहता हूँ. ज्योतिष अच्छा तो बहुत है परंतु इसमें भ्रांतियां भी उतनी ही फैली हुई हैं जिस कारण कभी कभी बड़ा दुःख होता है. नौकरी के चलते ज्योतिष में समय देना थोड़ा कठिन हो जाता है अतः ईश्वर की प्रेरणा से अपने विचारों को प्रकट करने के लिए और इनसे किसी का कुछ भी भला हो सके इसी हेतु लेख लिखा करता हूँ.
