Heeramandi: Mumtaz reveals Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Netflix series could be her swansong; here's why
Hindustan Times

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has assembled an outstanding cast for Heeramandi that includes Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Huma Qureshi, and others. A fortnight ago, a photo of seasoned actor Mumtaz with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Koirala appeared online, sending fans into a frenzy. The senior actor's involvement in the Netflix web series quickly became the subject of widespread rumours.

According to a source in Mid Day, Bhansali's team approached Mumtaz earlier this year. She was asked to participate in a song and dance routine, but her lack of excitement as an artist was evident. A few weeks later, Bhansali extended an invitation to lunch at his home. He went into great depth about Manisha's role during the luncheon that she also attended. The tabloid reported that the character was a strong woman with her own thoughts, just as one would expect a Bhansali character to be. Mumtaz liked it and nodded at her.

The seasoned performer is currently in Uganda, where she is enjoying her birthday with loved ones. India will likely be her next stop for the shoot. Mumtaz responds to the report that she has joined the cast of the historical drama by telling the tabloid that Bhansali is the best filmmaker in India. If she enjoys her role, the actor would be thrilled to work with her. Being the boss, the filmmaker is the only one who can reveal the cast, and she is not allowed to talk about anything. But Mumtaz also said that he must take her into consideration.

It would be wonderful to see Mumtaz again after her last film, Aandhiyan, which was released almost thirty years ago. She claims that Heeramandi, which chronicles the tale of courtesans in pre-Independence India, might very well be her swansong while the modalities are still being worked out.

The actor concluded by saying that if she works on Heeramandi, she won't work on any other projects. After the project, she will be spoiled by the way Bhansali displays his characters, and there's nothing that compares to it.
