One of the highly anticipated web series, Heeramandi which is helmed by ace filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has created a huge buzz in the industry. At the recent Global Fan event, Tudum, the filmmaker shared his inspiration behind Heeramandi which is going to be his first-ever series for Netflix. Sanjay over the years has given us some brilliant films and has won many hearts across the globe.

The series will explore the hidden cultural reality of Heeramandi, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession, and politics in the kothas. Speaking about his journey and Heeramandi, Mr. Bhansali said

“When I look back at 25 years, I think it’s very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that’s why I cling to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that’s my temple, that’s my everything. Heeramandi was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago, and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colors this time”.

Many young aspiring filmmakers take inspiration from Sanjay and his art. He always manages to charm the audience with his filmmaking skills and larger-than-life movies. I am super thrilled to see what he has in store for us with one of the most talked-about projects in Bollywood.
