Bhansali Productions came into existence early in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s professional career – it began with Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999), which was only his second directorial venture and his first commercial success. Over the last two decades, Bhansali Productions has collaborated on several landmark films, which have been award magnets and box office bonanzas too. The failures of Sawariya and Guzaarish put a question mark on its prospects for a spell but Bhansali Productions bounced back by betting on outside directors helming films like Rowdy Rathore and Mary Kom.
Of course, Bhansali has now got his directorial mojo back too; and with the Rs 500-plus crore blockbuster Padmaavat, the company has hit its financial high water mark. Bhansali Productions gives the maverick director the assurance of deciding the budgets, creatives and marketing of his mega projects; and this allows him to be the ambitious auteur that he is.
