14 years of planning, 18 years of passion, 2 years of designing: Know execution plan of 'Heeramandi'

'Heeramandi' execution plan: Ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has brought his lifelong dream to reality with the release of 'Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar,' marking his debut in the OTT world.

Bhansali, while reflecting on his journey, spoke about his childhood visit to a film studio, igniting his passion for storytelling.


"I wanted to make it 18 years ago. Then I thought there was another film to be made, then another film to be made. But this was always on my list of wanting to have to make it one day. After every film, Heeramandi would come out, and I would say once again, wait, it's too vast. It's too epic - too much of an epic to be made into two or two and a half hours. Then we thought we'd make it into two parts, he said.

"It's difficult to make a series, but we've made it, and I have enjoyed it. I'm glad and thankful to God that we made it. 14 years of planning, 18 years of living with it, and two years of designing, so it's a lot of work that has gone into it," he added.

The series explores the cultural world of Heeramandi through the lives of courtesans and their patrons.

Starring Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sharmin Segal, Taha Shah Badussha, Shekhar Suman, and Adhyayan Suman, it promises to deliver an epic tale of love, power, revenge, and freedom.

"Heeramandi" is now available for streaming on Netflix.
