Shani Dev is born to Surya or Sun God and Chhaya. Chhaya is the clone of Surya’s wife Sangya.
Sangya wanted to go into seclusion and hence she left behind her shadow, Chhaya, who was her clone. This was kept a secret and even Surya Dev wasn’t aware of this. Surya Dev and Sangya had two children, a son named Yama and a daughter called Yami. She left her two children behind in Chhaya’s custody while she was in seclusion and Chhaya took care of them as her own. Eventually, Shani was born to Chhaya. However, his father wasn’t exactly happy upon his birth. Click here to know more about this.
Shani Dev’s real story is shrouded in mystery. Tune in to Shani on Colors TV, 7th November onwards, every Mon- Fri at 9.30PM to know more about this Planet God!
