Director-Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali

After two years of shooting and frequent disruptions due to the pandemic, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has finally completed filming Gangubai Kathiawadi. Having survived two lockdowns, two cyclones, and the director and its lead actor, Alia Bhatt, being diagnosed with COVID-19, the upcoming film stood its ground and is ready to enter its post-production phase.

Now as per an ETimes report, Bhansali is now gearing up to work on his first web series titled Heera Mandi, which the Padmaavat filmmaker will produce and Vibhu Puri will direct. Without wasting any further time, he will start shooting in the same studio as Gangubai Kathiawadi, with the previous sets being brought down and certain modifications made to suit the look for Heera Mandi.


It is rumored that actors Huma Qureshi, Sonakshi Sinha, Nimrat Kaur, Sayani Gupta, and Manisha Koirala will be joining hands with Bhansali for the project, but there has been no official confirmation yet.

On another note, Alia took to Instagram on Sunday, and penned down a heartfelt note and thanked Bhansali and the entire crew for this life-changing experience. Having always dreamt of working with SLB, playing Gangubai was her moment and as the film wraps its shooting, she was grateful, but also sad for having to bid goodbye to Gangu forever, she wrote.
