Twenty five years after they created magic in Khamoshi: The Musical, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Manisha Koirala reunite in the director's costume drama Heeramandi.

Manisha joins the cast of the Netflix show, which already includes Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha.

Now that Bhansali has wrapped up his film Gangubai Kathiawadi, he is working on the pre-production of Heeramandi. The shooting will start in two months.


Heeramandi is the story of a gallery of gorgeous prostitutes, whose destinies are intertwined.

Some of the top actresses will be seen together for the first time.
