Mumbai - (Ass Mess): Fabled Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan has consulted India's top astrologers on the dilemma he is facing amid the possibility of fraud charges being brought against him in an illegal land deal.
The alleged transaction involves farmland in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh which was acquired in a 'totally above board' business deal according to the movie star's lawyers.
They have urged him to settle the case as soon as possible.
However, astrologers who recently advised Bachchan on the marriage of his son Abhishek to former Miss World and top Bollywood movie star Ashwariya Rai have told him to hold back until this week 'when more favorable aspects will bring a speedy settlement'.
Bachchan has ben told that from June 5th Venus, the planet of luck, money and general good fortune moves into the regal and uterly majestic sign of Leo where is augurs well for all business matters connected to his good name and social standing.
Also on 5th June the Sun in Gemini finally opposes the mighty Jupiter, the Great Benefic. Any favorable resolution of conflict is better aspected after this planetary confrontation, Bachchan has been told.
Bachchan says he is innocent of all fraud charges despite a report by a senior state government official is recommending that criminal charges be brought.
Last Friday, a court in Uttar Pradesh ruled that registering the land in the star's name amounted to fraud, a charge that Bachchan 'utterly rejects'.
His legal defense team will now try to work around the astrologers' advice which is uncompromising that any negotiations on the disputed land deal be heard in court after the Sun in Gemini on 19th June opposes the baleful planet Pluto in Sagittarius.
"Bachchan can win this one hands down just as long as the Judge can be persuaded to hold off from giving his verdict until at least 21st June when the Summer Solstice is backed by a powerful Mars/Neptune trine, which should se our client laughing all the way to the bank again," said an attorney who has studied the astrological advice and proceeded to advise his client acordingly.
