Did you know that the brick-and-mortar entities we call homes are subject to astrology too? And that top Bollywood stars swear by house horoscopes?
Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Akshay Kumar— they’ve all got horoscopes made for their houses to invite lady luck. Neeta Sinha, an astro-architect who specialises in making house horoscopes and is currently working on John Abraham’s, Bipasha Basu’s and Amisha Patel’s houses says that a house-horoscope maker delves into details like the legal owner of the house, if it’s owned or leased and occupation of inmates etc.
Kalyani Chawla of Christian Dior India, who got a horoscope made for her workplace says that the “science has worked miracles in my life”. Filmmaker Karan Johar who got a horoscope made for his house has written an online testimonial about how the technique worked wonders and how he recommended it to friends. His friends, apparently, already knew.
King Khan named his famous abode ‘Mannat’ only after getting a horoscope made for the house. He was also advised to add red in some places and place a fish tank in a corner. Shah Rukh’s brief was simple, “Do anything but my next film should be a success.”
Sinha, who researched horoscopes of over 30,000 houses before taking up the profession says that adding mirrors, changing colour schemes or the name can bring results within a week. “Recently, I did Dino Morea’s house. I told him it would be good if he named his house with ‘K’, so he called it Kasa Morea.”
Designer Sandeep Khosla, who also got a kundali made for his house says,” People don’t believe what a plant, colour or a mirror could do to your house. It worked miracles for me, sometimes the results came within 24 hours.”
