Renowned Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is set to make his Netflix debut with a new web-series titled Heeramandi. The series will feature a star-studded Bollywood cast including Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Sharmin Segal, and Aditi Rao Hydari.
The series will reportedly explore the stories of the courtesans of Heera mandi, sometimes referred to as Shahi Mohallah (“Royal Neighborhood”) which was a famous red-light district in Lahore during the pre-Partition era.
The series will be set in the early 20th century and will delve into the lives of the women who lived and worked there. The show will focus on the lives of the courtesans, their struggles, their relationships, and their journey towards independence.
Here is a first look at the cast of the upcoming Netflix series.
Bhansali is known for his larger-than-life films such as Devdas and Padmaavat, and he is expected to bring the same grandeur and attention to detail to Heeramandi. The series will be produced by Bhansali Productions and Netflix, and is expected to have a high production value.
The cast of the series is equally impressive, with Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Sharmin Segal, and Aditi Rao Hydari bringing their own unique talents to the project.
Koirala, who has previously worked with Bhansali in the 1996 film Khamoshi: The Musical, is expected to deliver another standout performance in the series. Sinha, Chadha, Shaikh, Segal, and Hydari are all renowned actresses who have made a name for themselves in the industry.
The announcement of Heeramandi has already generated a buzz among fans and industry insiders alike. The series is expected to be a visual treat and a testament to Bhansali’s directorial prowess, who previously earned praises for Gangubai Kathiawadi, a film with a similar premise.
With a talented cast and a compelling story, Heeramandi has all the makings of a hit web-series.
