Reportedly, Rs 150 crore is being bet on when Baby B would be born; 11.11.11 seems to be bookies' favourite
The arrival of the new member in the Bachchan family might also affect the fortunes of many others across the country. The moment pa-in-law Amitabh Bachchan announced the news of Ash's pregnancy, bookies across the country went on an overdrive speculating the sex of the child.
Now the focus seems to have shifted from the gender of the baby to the date of its birth. Not surprisingly, the maximum money is riding on the auspicious 11.11.11 (November 11, 2011).
Confirms a Mumbai-based bookie, "There are a lot of bets being placed on dates between November 9 and 14. The money riding on it is at least 150 crores which may go up in the coming week. November 11 is the hot favourite amongst bookies. The second most speculated date is November 14, which is Children's Day."
Though Abhishek has denied rumours about Aishwarya planning a C-section for their child to be born on November 11, sources confirm that it is a date that could change the fortune of the child.
Says numerologist Sanjay Jumani, "If the kid is born on 11.11.11, then he/she will be governed by the moon and his birth number would be 2.
Many superstars in Bollywood have their birth number as 2 including Amitabh Bachchan (Oct 11), Shahrukh Khan (Nov 2), Ajay Devgn (April 2), Sanjay Dutt (July 29), Dilip Kumar (Dec 11), Rajesh Khanna (Dec 29) and many more.
Also, with the moon being the planet with the maximum influence on the day, the kid's creative abilities would be much sharper. Many musicians, actors and painters are ruled by the moon. On the flipside, the moon also has side effects, which can make the person very sensitive and moody."
It is expected that the Bachchans will continue evading the paparazzi from keeping a close eye on the developments at home.
