The long-awaited Heeramandi web series, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has finally unveiled its first look on social media. The teaser features a stunning ensemble Heeramandi web series cast, including Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Sharmin Segal, and Sanjeeda Shaikh, all dressed in beautiful yellow ensembles.
The teaser showcases a message that reads, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali invites you to the world where courtesans were queens,” setting the tone for this upcoming Netflix Original series that will showcase the story of the courtesans of Lahore and explore the lesser-known aspects of their lives.
The show is set in pre-independent India and is a grand, all-encompassing series that promises to be a milestone in Bhansali’s journey as a filmmaker.
The team behind the show has been hard at work, with Bhansali himself acknowledging the difficulty of creating a series with such an expansive scope, admitting that it has been a physically demanding experience that has required constant attention and alertness.

Heeramandi Web Series Story
Heeramandi tells the story of three generations of courtesans, and the central characters are introduced in the teaser with an Indian classical score playing in the background, setting a captivating tone for the series.
This project is a culmination of Bhansali’s many years of experience in the film industry, having directed iconic films such as Khamoshi: The Musical, Black, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and Guzaarish, among others. His last directorial project was the 2022 hit Gangubai Kathiawadi, starring Alia Bhatt in the titular role and Ajay Devgn in a supporting role.
To think that writer Moin Beg had initially come up with the idea for Heeramandi 14 years ago, and Bhansali had to put it on hold while he got into other projects, only makes the wait for this series even more unbearable.
But as the caption on the Netflix India and Bhansali Productions post says, “Another time, another era, another magical world created by Sanjay Leela Bhansali we can’t wait to be a part of. Here is a glimpse into the beautiful and intriguing world of Heeramandi. Coming soon.”
