Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after success of his last hit Padmaavat is all set to revive one of his ambitious projects.
According to recent updates, the filmmaker is soon going to start working on his next film titled Heera Mandi. According to a source, “The film is still in the final stages of the writing process. For now, it’s being called Hira Mandi.”
Heera Mandi revolved around the story of prostitutes in the prostitution hub. There were strong rumours that Heera Mandi was supposed to feature a stellar cast including Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee and Sonam Kapoor.
In a statement to leading news paper, Bhansali denied the claims of the movie going on the floor in 2008. He said, “There are no chances of starting Heera Mandi soon. In fact, it might take two to three years to start the project if I want to start it at all. The script of the film is not ready yet.” It was also stated that the movie will feature Pakistani actor Imran Abbas, over this Sanjay said, “These are all rumours. He is definitely not in the film. This news is completely false. I would rather cast an Indian actor for the role.”
