Jayati Bhatia had earlier revealed that she was the last to join the cast of Heeramandi. The casting team was looking for an ideal actor to portray the role for two years before signing her. So, when Jayati received the offer, she was initially reluctant but went ahead for an opportunity to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She appreciated the director and revealed that he never made her feel any less than other actors. Recalling her experience, she said:

“He never made me feel that there are other big actors on set. My chemistry with him was quite great. Day one was a little shaky. I forgot my lines in my first shot, and Mr Bhansali remarked, ‘You are from theatre and you forgot the lines.’ But after that, when we redid the scenes, there was no looking back.”
