It’s all about good vibrations: Bollywood’s go-to astrologer Balu Munnangi has landed on the set of Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani in New Delhi. Considering Munnagi’s name figured in the opening credits of KJo’s earlier production, Shershaah (he was thanked for guiding the Sidharth Malhotra-starrer), looks like the Hyderabad-based astro- consultant has a bigger role to play in the romantic comedy starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. “Vibrant vibrations on the sets,” posted Munnangi while sharing pictures from the set. Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and several South film folk seek Munnagi’s advice on business, health and wealth matters. He is said to be guiding and titling Dharma’s upcoming slate of films to ensure everything is right and spells success at the box office.
At the start of a movie, we see a lot of people being thanked by the producer in the opening credits. The ‘Thank You’ card is extended to legal advisers, consultants, friends and well-wishers. Recently, when the Bollywood movie ‘Shershaah’ started streaming on Amazon Prime, a new kind of ‘Thank You’ card was witnessed. We see an Astro consultant named Balu Munnangi being thanked. Reason?
