Heera Mandi will show the hidden culture of the red light of the walled city of Lahore. Initially, Bhansali’s sponsored Vibhu Puri was supposed to direct all episodes of the prolific series while Bhansali was working as a producer, but now Netflix has some other thoughts.
A source close to the development told Bollywood Hungama, “Heera is Mandi Bhansali’s dream project 12 years ago. The only reason he doesn’t officially direct is that Gangubai Kathiawadi is working on the post-production of director project.”
While Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi have starred in the main roles, casting for the remaining roles is still underway. Many expected Sanjay Leela to lead the Bhansali project. Speaking about it, the source told the publication: “There are seven sections Heera Mandin. Bhansali will now direct the first Section. The remaining 6 sections will be directed by Vibhu Puri while Bhansali oversees the project. “
As for Vibhu Puri, he has previously assisted the director of a Saawariya and has written interviews for the Guzaarish. He directed the 2015 film Hawaizaada.
Previous reports also suggested that Ismail Darbar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are back in the Heera Mandi team. Pinkville reported quoting a source as saying, “Considering the theme of the show, music will play a key role in the narrative and Sanjay Leela Bhansali believes that Ismail Darbar will do him full justice. SLB itself has a great ear for music and has already started working on some ideas with Darbar.” .
