As per latest reports, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has roped in veteran actress Anju Mahendru for a special role in his upcoming webseries 'Heeramandi'.
A source close to the project has revealed that the role to be played by Anju has been specially written by Sanjay Leela Bhansali himself. Not only this, her look and costumes have also been conceptualised by the filmmaker.
From what we hear, Anju Mahendru will play the head courtesan of the Kotha. Noteworthy, the webseries features Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Sheikh and Aditi Rao Hydari as courtesans or tawaifs who reside in pre-1947 Lahore.
Earlier, there were reports claiming that Mumtaz and Shabana Azmi will be a part of Heeramandi. Unfortunately, they couldn't come onboard and hence Sanjay Leela Bhansali decided to scrap out their roles from the script.
On Saturday (February 18), the makers of 'Heeramandi' shared the first look poster and a teaser of the much-awaited web show on Instagram. Bhansali Productions, in association with Netflix India, are bringing to viewers the multi-starrer period saga which promises 'SLB's grandeur combined with the awe inspiring talent and elegance' of the leading ladies.
The opening episode of 'Heeramandi' will be helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali himself. From the second episode onwards, SLB's assistant Mitakshara Kumar will take charge of the directorial duties.
'Heeramandi' will stream exclusively on Netflix.
