Ace Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has given us glorious films like Black, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat among others to look back on. The director is now finally making his digital debut with the web series Heeramandi. There has been great fanfare and curiosity around the series right from the plot to casting. There were several rumors that the director might opt of Rekha or Madhuri Dixit to play the lead in the series. But the filmmaker has refuted these claims saying that just because they are not reacting to these claims, web portals are doing their own casting coup.
Talking about Heeramandi SLB said, “Heeramandi' is an important milestone in my journey as a filmmaker. This is an epic, first of its kind series based on the courtesans of Lahore. It is an ambitious, grand and all-encompassing series; therefore I am nervous yet excited about making it. I am looking forward to my partnership with Netflix and bringing Heeramandi to audiences all over the world.” Watch this space for more updates on the same.
