As per BollywoodLife, Heeramandi is going to be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s darkest project. Not only the theme of the series is dark but the visuals and milieu will also be dark in nature.

It is reported that earlier Sanjay Leela Bhansali has tried to make this into a film on more than a few occasions but it never got made due to one reason or the other.

In an earlier interview, SLB said that “Heeramandi was something that my friend MoinBaig got me 14 years ago. And then finally, when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it. They thought it had a great potential to make a mega-series. It’s very ambitious. It’s very big. It’s very vast. You have the story of the courtesans pre-independence. They kept music and poetry and dance, and the art of living the politics within the kothas and how to emerge as the winner.”
