Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar will have 6 to 7 songs in the album

The first glimpse of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar has given just a small glimpse of the grand enthralling world the filmmaker will present with his digital debut. Being one of the biggest shows to come out of India, the show is expected to revolutionize the OTT arena globally. With the grand landscape of the show, it will also have 6 to 7 songs in the album. 


Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar will have 6 to 7 songs in the album. The songs are going to be a visual grandeur to relish on the screen. This is the first time an OTT show will be having songs of such a grand scale. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who always gives his personal attention to the music of his films, spent a year working on the music of Heeramandi, a show which is very close to him. 


Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar also features Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Sharmin Segal, and Sanjeeda Sheikh. The show is all set to release this year on Netflix worldwide.


The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of Heeramandi, a dazzling district, during pre-Independence India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the kothas.

Sharing about his journey and Heeramandi, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, "I remember when I was a four-year-old kid, and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said, you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it's very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that's why I cling on to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that's my temple, that's my everything."

Further, he added, “Heeramandi was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. They kept music, poetry and dance and the art of living. It shows the politics within the brothels and how to emerge as the winner. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colours this time."
