Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s last movie Gangubai Kathiawadi was loved by all and now the filmmaker is all geared up for his next masterwork Heeramandi.
As per media reports, Fardeen Khan has been roped in to play an important role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi. The reports further reveal that Fardeen has been cast opposite Aditi Rao Hydari in SLB’s period drama series. Fascinatingly, Fardeen's mother-in-law Mumtaz was in the news a few days ago for being a part of the same show and now it is Fardeen who might be seen in this show. Talking to a daily, when Mumtaz was questioned about being a part of Heeramandi, she revealed, “nothing has happened on that front yet but Fardeen has shot for the show already."
For the information, Heeramandi is not a film, but an eight-episode web series. The shooting for the show has started. DOP Sudeep Chatterjee shared the photo of the clapboard last month in which it was written 'Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali...DOP: Sudeep Chatterjee...Mahurat Shot...Date: 27.06.2022'. While sharing the post, Sudeep wrote, "To new beginnings".
Earlier, Netflix officially pronounced its association with the filmmaker Bhansali for Heeramandi. “We are excited to announce that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi IS COMING TO NETFLIX. Words aren't enough to explain how excited we are that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is partnering with us for this epic Netflix Original series,” a part of the social media post read.
Furthermore, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Huma Qureshi, Nimrat Kaur, and Sayani Gupta are a part of the show.
