According to reports, acclaimed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is set to begin production on his much-anticipated Netflix show Heeramandi in the month of March. The multi-starrer show boasts of an impressive cast, including Sonakshi Sinha, Diana Penty and Manisha Koirala.
Heeramandi was earlier scheduled to go before cameras in February. However, the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant of the virus threw a wrench into the works and production on several ongoing and upcoming projects, including Heeramandi, came to a halt.
The team is currently busy building a sprawling set in Goregaon Filmcity in Mumbai. It is recreating Lahore of the bygone era, building alleys and bazaars of the city. The show will mark Bhansali’s debut in the digital space
“The story that spans three generations is set in a district in Lahore of pre-Independence India. Over the past 15 days, the production design team has been supervising as the workers are recreating Lahore of the bygone era, building alleys and bazaars of the city. Given the nature of the show, it demands a large crew. Bhansali sir will lead a cast and crew of about 300,” informs a source in the know.
