Sanjay Leela Bansali’s next ‘Heeramandi’ will feature 16-20 songs!

Sanjay Leela Bansali’s

Sanjay Leela Bansali is one of the most gifted filmmakers that Indian cinema has. He has made some of the most popular films that Indian actors have participated in. Films like Padmaavat, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, RamLeela, Bajirao Mastani, and more are all gems that Sanjay Leela Bansali has created.

His next project and his first-ever series will be going on the floors soon. The project is titled Heeramandi and will have the true qualities of a musical. The musical will have around 16-20 songs according to some reports. Says a source from the series, “SLB has already composed 20-35 songs for Heeramandi, of which he will use 16-20 songs in the series. Three will be semi-classical songs but nothing that the young listener cannot identify with. Heeramandi is not for audiences of the Pakeezah/Umrao Jaan era. SLB has designed it as attuned to today’s youngsters.”

The source says there won’t be a surfeit of classical singing and dancing.

“Kotha hai, naach-gana toh hoga. But not to the extent that we saw in legendary films on the kotha culture like Pakeezah, Umrao Jaan and Sadhana. It will be more to the taste of today’s youngsters. Also, SLB wants to make it an upbeat series. Normally films on the kotha and tawaif end on a note of tragedy. These tawaifs in Heeramandi are happy souls. They deserve a happy ending. Both Netflix and Bhansali will make sure of that.”
