Sanjay Leela Bhansali shared his vision for his first-ever series, Heeramandi at Netflix's Global Fan Event, TUDUM. Acclaimed director and maestro Sanjay Leela Bhansali shared his inspiration behind the magnum opus Heeramandi, his first-ever series for Netflix, his approach to filmmaking and more in a featurette on Netflix’s India Tudum Spotlight. The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of Heeramandi, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the kothas.
Sharing about his journey and Heeramandi, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, “I remember when I was a four-year-old kid and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it's very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that's why I cling to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that's my temple, that's my everything.”
