Sanjay Leela Bhansali is debuting on OTT with his highly anticipated project Heeramandi. The makers have just released the teaser video featuring Sonakshi Sinha, Manisha Koirala, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chaddha, Sharmin Segal and Sanjeeda Shaikh. The upcoming web series chronicles the tale of three generations of courtesans residing in Lahore's Heeramandi, during pre-independent India.
During the teaser premiere event, the giant filmmaker spoke about casting the leading actors of Bollywood and said that he wanted to work with each of them. When asked about his perfect casting, Bhansali stated, "It is so not perfect, it is exciting to find and discover okay how are they going to interpret the role. I mean a role could be interpreted in so many different ways, but what Manisha Koirala brings to the role. Abd therefore the discovery that oh, I've cast correctly comes at the end."
"I wanted to know what Sonakshi bring to me besides her eyes, her beauty, her stardom and her aura. What does Aditi bring to me? I always wanted to work with each of them and they are wonderful talents," he added.
Furthermore, the filmmaker even joked about all the actors showing tantrums on the set and taking a lot of time to come out of their vanity van. In the end, he mentioned, "They are such wonderful girls and I had a blast shooting with them. So, no they are not perfect but by the end of the eighth episode when I finish, I will be saying that yes they are the perfect cast."
Netflix dropped the latest teaser video with a special caption that calls the upcoming web series a magical world created by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in another time and era. The OTT giant also unveiled that the show is set to arrive soon.
