As of the end of the month, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s debut Netflix web series Heeramandi will begin filming on a massive set costing around Rs. 1.75 crore in Mumbai’s Film City, which depicts Lahore in 1945.
Now that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Netflix series titled Heeramandi has been pulled from Netflix, all the dancing in it will have to be diverted from its original source. Heeramandi was meant to be a collaboration between Bhansali and Pandit Birju Maharaj. A new choreographer will have to be found for Heeramandi’s dance after the tragic death of the Kathak master.
Apparently, Bhansali has no idea who should choreograph the dance in Heeramandi, according to reports. In the absence of Panditji, Saroj Khan would have been Bhansali’s perfect second option. According to a source, “However, she is also no more,” the source continues.
It’s possible that Bhansali is doing the choreography himself, given the omission. Anishwarya Rai Bachchan’s dance in Guzaarish was choreographed by the same director for this new movie
