This series will explore various stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of Heeramandi, Lahore during the pre-independence era of India. The makers have told the series about love, betrayal, succession, and politics. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently awaiting the release of Alia Bhatt-starrer “Gangubai Kathiawadi”.

Sharing his thoughts on Heeramandi, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said in a press statement, “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.”


On Monday morning, Netflix India posted a message marking 25 years of Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the Hindi film industry. “A space intricately detailed, a tune playing in the background that’s new but still feels familiar, faces so bright that they could make the sun look dull, a crescendo of a timeless tale that leaves you wanting to dwell in this dream. All of this, created by the dreamer, the cultural storehouse; who’d have us, and all around us wondering ‘How did he pull THAT off?’ No points for guessing the name: Sanjay Leela Bhansali.”


The post was, “The four-year-old who went on set and never left, the thirty-year-old who set out to dream larger-than-life, and the man who now lives by his 25 years old legacy of exalted filmmaking. The mastery with which his films move through time and take us on a journey to places we’ve never had the chance to see before has always left us spellbound. We’ve all lived a few of our lives dreaming and dwelling in the upside-down of SLB’s world. We’ve all heard Laal Ishq play in the background when we gushed over someone we love, pretended we’re at war when fighting with our siblings over the remote control, and woken up in a palace where we saw pink, purple, and yellow-tinted glasses and then… actually woken up to reality,”.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali made his directorial debut with Khamoshi: The Musical in 1996. This film featured Salman Khan, Manisha Koirala, Nana Patekar, and Helen and traced the story of a deaf and mute couple. Black, Guzaarish, and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Padmaavat are some of his major films.
