Fans of Sanjay Leela Bhansali are anticipating the release of his epic film, ‘Heeramandi,’ with great anticipation. The director apparently requested re-shoots of several scenes in the web series, so the wait may only become longer, according to the most recent sources.
Through stories of courtesans and their patrons set against the violent backdrop of the 1940s Indian liberation fight, the series investigates the cultural realities of the flashy community of ‘Heeramandi.’
Multiple directors will shoot various chapters of the period drama, which is presently being filmed in Mumbai. Fans were excited about the new series after seeing the first trailer featuring Richa Chaddha, Sonakshi Sinha, Manisha Koirala, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Sanjeeda Sheikh. However, Bhansali is dissatisfied with several of the series’ scenes and insists on having them reshot. Given that the production is almost done, this is now a problem. If the reshoots cause a delay in the Netflix release, that remains to be seen.
In his OTT first series, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali claimed that he took the time to portray the nuances of Mughal-E-Azam and Pakeezah. The principal heroines in both films, Madhubala and Meena Kumari, played courtesans.
‘Heeramandi’ is my gratitude to Pakeezah, Mehboob Khan sahab’s Mother India, and the magnificent Mughal-e-Azam, as Bhansali said, “They understood that since she created man, she deserves a role in literature, film, and the arts. They didn’t always tell stories about men; they constantly featured women, he added.
