Can we have something like this which shows the person's birthday like in Google here: https://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=...

This is what DDG gave today: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=rajinikanth+bi...

Could be IMDB, Wiki for popular figures

We no longer get IMDB data, so we're going to need an alternative for that.

What's the problem with IMDB?

We don't have an agreement to get their data and we don't want to use an unofficial source either, so for now we're refraining from showing IMDb data in Instant Answers

Though not as robust as IMDB, TheMovieDB might be worth considering:

http://www.criticker.com/ is an alternative for TV, Movie, Theater celebrities... however, I think the API has been shut for sometime.... not sure though.

The DDG team recently began working internally on a new Instant Answer which will be able to answer queries of this nature. Keep an eye out for updates!

Be sure to include their age in the output as well. That will often be the next question people think of and it would be a pleasure if DDG served up what you wanted before you knew what it was.
