Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heera Mandi is one of his most ambitious projects and all his fans know about it. Yes, this is the same Heera Mandi that was shown in Karan Johar’s Kalank and guess what, SLB’s grand project is in talks with OTT giant Netflix.
Bhansali put his heart, soul into all his projects and are made on a grand scale and we can’t wait to see what he has in box for his fans this time.
A source close to Peeping Moon revealed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is in talks with Netflix to sign a film deal with the OTT giant on and it’s going to be Heera Mandi.
That’s correct. The source said, “Bhansali and his production company’s CEO Prerna Singh have been in talks with Netflix for quite some time now and they recently agreed to work together on Heera Mandi which has been a passion project for the filmmaker. The film has been envisioned as a big-scale custom drama and will have all the elements of a Sanjay Leela Bhansali epic even though he’s not directing it himself.”
Isn’t that great news? Totally.
Meanwhile, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently busy shooting Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt. Also, we have learnt a while ago that an actor from Bhansali’s Padmaavat has joined the cast of this Alia Bhatt starrer. Yes, you read that right. Jim Sarbh, who had played Malik Kafur in the Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone-Shahid Kapoor starrer will play an important role in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
Reportedly, Jim Sarbh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali had got along well while shooting for Padmaavat. “Jim plays a journalist in the film and has already shot for some of his portions. He will soon start shooting for his remaining part as well,” informs a source close to the development.
