Yet another star filmmaker teams up with Netflix

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has teamed up with Netflix for a magnum opus. Titled ‘Heeramandi’, his OTT debut is a web series about the lives of courtesans in a bygone era in Lahore. 

Set in the pre-Independence era, the show will be glitzy and come with unique Bhansali sensibilities. Touted to be a visual spectacle, its budget is said to be more than that of medium-range Indian movies. 

Bhansali, who awaits the release of Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gangubai’, has allied with Netflix to prove that OTT has got a bright future. Thanks to the huge resources at the disposal of OTT giants, they are able to commission massive projects.

Meanwhile, down South, Venkatesh and Rana Daggubati are said to be in talks with Netflix for a multi-starrer.
