"Black for you may be darkness; for me it is a universal truth. Our best ideas come from the darkness of the mind; every new life is created in the darkness of the womb…"
– Said Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He is considered to be one of the most profound thinkers and is regarded highly for his dedication to the craft and intensity. He leaves no stone unturned to incorporate the elements like perfection, depth, technical and artistic finesse, and visual appeal in his films. Over the years, he has given us films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas, Black, Bajirao Mastani amongst others and has won our hearts as well as numerous awards. The noteworthy aspect about Bhansali's brand of film-making is that most of his films receive extensive critical appeal as well as commercial success and achieving both at the same time would be any director's dream. But things haven't been too rosy for Sanjay and whatever happened on the sets of Padmavati in Jaipur would have hurt him a lot. But, did he go too far this time or did the planets play a mischievous role? What could have gone wrong for such a prudent man? Ganesha analyses.

Analysing The Stalwart Director's Astrological Strengths:
Ganesha notes that the top-rank planets – Jupiter, the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction and this renders great strength to the Horoscope. It is to be noted that this conjunction takes place in the Sign of Aquarius – which happens to be the Sign of original and innovative thinking. This is one of the factors which propels Bhansali to stand apart with his unconventional ideas and creativity.
Venus Presenting The Platform To Express
Adding more power to the above factor, Venus – the planet of arts and entertainment is in a sextile position from the trio in Aquarius. This shows that his thoughts (Moon) are able to transform well into creative representations (Venus). As Venus is placed in the Sign of Sagittarius – ruled by Jupiter, Bhansali has the penchant for grand depictions and visual grandeur in his films.
Bhansali's Capricorn Mystery:
Saturn, Mercury and Ketu are placed in the Sign of Capricorn. This configuration presents a picture of a person who can be excellent in in-depth research and complex analysis. Though Mercury is afflicted due to its presence with Ketu, its placement between top-rank planets results into the Shubhakartari Yoga. This Yoga nullifies a lot of negative features and makes his mind extremely sharp and fertile.
The Current Scenario:
From 30th January, 2016, Rahu-Ketu have been transiting through the Leo-Aquarius axis, which means that the planets in Aquarius have been under the affliction of Ketu. Due to this, it can be said that there have been problems for the director. Ketu is a planet which represents sudden events, loss of honour, complications, disruptions and sorrow. This is the primary factor which could have given rise to the controversy.
What Could Have Caused The 'Padmavati' Controversy?
Additionally, it is to be noted that, the controversy took place during the Venus-Ketu conjunction (transit). When Venus gets afflicted by the nodes, the artists or people of the film industry would generally be prone to controversies and problems. Apart from this, Saturn had entered the Sign of Sagittarius on the 26th January, 2017, and started influencing Bhansali's natal Venus and the trio in Aquarius and immediately a day after, the controversy took place, that is on the 27th of January, 2017.
Will The Path In The Year Ahead Be Smooth?
Ganesha feels that the first half of the year 2017 will not be a very favourable period and there may be some incidents that may affect his peace of mind. There may be multiple hassles and there are also chances of legal issues. But post September, transiting Jupiter will be transiting through the Sign of Libra and will be aspecting the Natal Sun, Jupiter and Moon in Aquarius. Also, by then, Ketu would have moved away from the the aforementioned trio. This will ease things for him and he will enjoy faster progress. He will get due cooperation and support from the bigwigs of the entertainment industry. But legal hassles even post September cannot be ruled out.
But, Ganesha marks another period between October 2017 and March 2018 and says that he will have to be very careful during this phase in matters related to his health and finances.
Ganesha wishes a great time ahead to Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
