The series is based on pre-independent, undivided India, in the Heeramandi area of Lahore, which is now in our sweet neighbour Pakistan.

“It is a huge saga about the courtesans of Lahore, it is something I was living with for 14 years,” Bhansali expresses. “It’s very vast and ambitious.”

The series will explore the themes of love, betrayal, succession and politics in the ‘kothas’ or brothells of Heeramandi through three ages of courtesans. The filmmaker’s trademark larger than life sets and operatic songs will very much be in view.

“It’s a very difficult one, I like to take a little time and the scale is big,” says Bhansali. “I live with a subject for a long time, then I build and build and I keep thinking of it… So it’s a lot of time I give to a particular idea, but it’s great fun. That’s how it finally emerges. So now I think I’m ready to make ‘Heeramandi.'”
