As you can see, he is a Virgo ascendant with the ascendant lord Mercury placed in the 11th house in the sign of Cancer. Mercury in Cancer is good for working with the emotions and here the working is communication with the emotions (singing) as the efforts of Mars are going into the sign of Gemini which is a communicative sign of the planet Mercury.
Mars is a planet of putting energy and effort and when Mars is in Gemini the effort is going into some kind of communication, and singing is also a sort of communication but it is a communication with melody and emotions in it.
Also, an actor has to communicate a lot while acting in the film and Dhanush is an actor also along with a singer. Since Mercury is placed in the sign of emotions, Moon, so the communication is getting the required emotions and Sun in Cancer is giving fun or vitality to the emotions, and Venus in Leo is giving the melody for singing as Venus is a planet of melody. Venus represents the heart (dil) and when Venus is in Leo in the 12th house then the heart is towards > being in the limelight < as Leo is a sign of name and fame and the limelight. Films, stage performances, singing, etc all give limelight and name & fame.
Also, the 12th house is the house of working from behind the scenes. If the 11th house represents the public or the masses then the 12th house is like working for the masses in some way from behind the scenes such as the stage performance, and also his 12th lord Sun is placed in the 11th house of the public which gives a clear indication of entertaining the masses from the backstage or working from behind the scenes for the public. Sun is a planet of fun and entertainment and so Sun being placed in the 11th house is more about entertaining the masses or the public (audience).
His 10th lord Mercury is placed in the 11th house. When the 10th lord is placed in the 11th house this is something like having authority over the masses or ruling over the masses, and politicians, social activists, public speakers, and actors are good examples of that as they rule or have a grip over the masses or the public.
This is because the 10th house is the house of authority, power, and control and the 11th house represents the masses or the public or the audience or the customers. When you entertain the masses on a large scale than in a way you have good control over the masses and that is what makes you good money. Having control over the masses means a good user base for your product or service. The 10th lord in the 11th house is one of the most powerful placements in a given birth chart.
Moon in the sign of Aquarius in the 6th house is like providing a service to the masses (as the sign of Aquarius represents the masses or the audience) and this service is related to acting and singing is confirmed by the fact that his Mercury and Sun are placed in the 11th house of the audience or the public and Sun is a planet of fun and entertainment and acting and singing are also nothing but fun and entertainment.
As an actor or a political leader, you take care of the people, and here it is taking care of the audience for fun and entertainment as Sun is a planet of fun and entertainment and it is placed in the 11th house of the masses or the audience. Moon is a planet of taking care and when Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius it is like taking care of the audience or nurturing the public with the fun and entertainment services from behind the scenes as Sun rules the 12th house of behind-the-scenes.
Sun in the sign of Cancer is like > emotional fun and entertainment as Cancer is a sign of emotions and Sun is a planet of fun and entertainment. Singing is also an emotional fun (recreational activity) and when Venus is placed in the sign of Leo it adds melody also to the emotions which creates communication or voice that becomes a song.
Also, his Rahu is placed in the sign of Gemini which is a sign of communication and Rahu indicates obsession in life. So, this will make him obsessed with communication and writing as Gemini is also a sign of writing along with communication. When communication becomes fun and melody then it becomes a song and this is indicated by Mercury and Sun in Cancer and Venus in Leo. When Mercury is placed in the 11th house it means communication in a network as the 11th house also represents the network and singing goes through a sound network via the speaker.
The 10th house is the best placement for Rahu as then the person gets obsessed about higher status in life as the 10th house is also the house of higher status or authority. When the sign of Gemini falls on the 10th house it becomes higher status in communication and actors communicate a lot, and this is also indicated by the planet Mars being placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house as Mars is the planet of putting energy and effort.
Also, Mars is considered exalted in the 10th house. This is actually a very powerful birth chart where most of the planets are quite well placed and his Saturn is also exalted in the sign of Libra in the 2nd house. Libra is a sign that is controlled by Swadisthana chakra in the human subtle system and Brahma and Saraswati rule the Swadisthana chakra.
Brahma is known for creativity and the Goddess Saraswati is known for education and singing. Saturn represents the audience or the public and when Saturn is placed in the sign of Libra it could also mean entertaining the masses or the audience as the sign ruler of Libra, Venus, is placed in the sign of Leo in the 12th house of working from behind the scenes.
