Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who recently marked 25 years in Indian cinema, is all set to make his digital debut with Netflix's series, titled 'Heera Mandi'.
As per a statement, the upcoming show will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of Heera Mandi, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. Basically, it is a series about love, betrayal, succession, and politics in the kothas which promises SLB's trademark larger-than-life sets, multi-faceted characters, and soulful compositions.
"'Heeramandi' is an important milestone in my journey as a filmmaker. This is an epic, first-of-its-kind series based on the courtesans of Lahore. It is an ambitious, grand, and all-encompassing series; therefore I am nervous yet excited about making it. I am looking forward to my partnership with Netflix and bringing Heeramandi to audiences all over the world," Bhansali said.
Monika Shergill, VP, Content, Netflix India also expressed her happiness in collaborating with Bhansali.
