Chandrashekar Swamy: Ash, Abhi must wed before March

Chandrashekhar Swamy, the family astrologer of the Bachchan family and now, Aishwarya Rai, is a happy man.

The engagement ceremony between Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya went off smoothly, just like he had predicted. He claims that the wedding will also be a smooth affair and predicts a happy and compatible married life for the couple.  

Swamy, who has been a guru for well-known film personalities in Karnataka like Dr Raj Kumar, had matched the kundalis of Abhishek and Ash and had suggested some 'parihaaraas' (solutions to the unfavourable planetary positions) to ward off the unpleasant things found in Ash's kundali.

Ever since Ajitabh, brother of Amitabh Bachchan visited the renowned Bangalore-based swamy last year, his name has been featuring in most of the news reports regarding the year's biggest celebrity wedding.

"Aishwarya Rai had some problems in her kundali but now they have been removed. Things are going to be smooth," Chandrashekar told a local newspaper in Karnataka. "She does not have mangala dasha. The engagement was delayed because the dasha had to be eliminated. I hope the wedding will be held on February 19 as has been advised by me earlier.   Conducting the wedding after March may not be a good idea."
