The two-year wait of anticipation is finally going to end tomorrow with the unveiling of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi. Since the director's star-studded cast announcement last year, netizens have eagerly awaited every scrap of information, piecing together the puzzle of plot and release date. Now, Netflix holds the key, promising to unlock the first glimpse of this much-anticipated drama. Brace yourselves, for the curtain rises on Heeramandi tomorrow, revealing a world of passion, intrigue, and Bhansali's signature opulence, which also marks his big web-series debut.

Fans' reactions of Heeramandi announcment

Following the big announcement, fans have responded with mixed reactions. The first look will drop tomorrow, and while excitement is visible among many, some have expressed their disappointment about the cast. A vocal minority even suggested the series would not be worthwhile without Madhuri Dixit's involvement. However, the overall sentiment appears to be one of keen anticipation.

What did they write?

While one Twitter user wrote, “Gut feeling, Heeramandi will not be a great movie. #SonakshiSinha ? Why? Unknown faces would've been better. The red light area of Lahore in Pakistan will become popular”, another expressed his excitement by writing, “Super excited to watch the first glimpse of #SanjayLeelaBhansali’s upcoming #HeeraMandi! Eagerly looking forward to what this incredible filmmaker #SanjayLeelaBhansali has in store to offer us with his OTT debut.”

Again another expressed disappointment for waiting too long, and wrote, “dude sanjay leela bhansali is high key annoying. he needs to stop thinking so highly of himself. heeramandi heeramandi, 2 saal se sun rahi hu, abhi bhi inko "first look" nikaalne mei itna taam jhaam karna hai. i dont even care stfu, treat your artists right, that'd be better.”

Another wrote, “I don't understand if #Heeramandi is one of the largest produced shows for Netflix, then why they don't include the show in any of these Netflix events. Hoping for something on Heeramandi in this.”

Heeramandi story

Heeramandi tells the stories of women who worked as dancers for entertainment in a specially cursed part of India during a time when the country was fighting for freedom from British rule. The show follows the lives of these women and the people they knew, showing what life was like for them then. The series stars Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Sharmin Segal and Sanjeeda Sheikh in the lead roles.

Heeramandi named derived from where?

Once a vibrant centre of culture and refined entertainment, Heeramandi, formerly known as Hira Singh Di Mandi, now occupies a different chapter in Lahore, Pakistan’s narrative.
