Pakistani Artist Edited A Video With Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, And Imran Abbas As 'Heeramandi' Leads

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar is the most ambitious project of ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It not only marks the filmmaker's debut on OTT platforms but also opens the window of extreme opulence and extravagance for the web series. Heeramandi depicts the story of tawaifs in the pre-independence era who bravely participated in the freedom movement but never received the deserved acclamation and credit. 

For the unversed, Heeramandi was a part of Lahore, which, in recent times, is in Pakistan. Hence, the Pakistanis also have a deep connection to the storyline, as before independence, we all were geographically one. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, even at a press conference, shared that he wanted to cast Pakistani actors in the series but could not do it for various reasons, and now, taking a cue from the same, an artist created a video with Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, and Imran Abbas as leads.

He also expressed interest in the talented Fawad Khan, Imran Abbas, and Mahira Khan. While the final cast may not have been what he initially envisioned, Sanjay is content with the ensemble he has brought together, ensuring a captivating viewing experience for the audience.

"I had multiple castings in mind; the idea has been there for 18 years. I thought about Rekha Ji, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Rani Mukerji. It was a film back then. I also thought about Mahira Khan, the Pakistani actress, and Imran Abbas and Fawad Khan were also in my mind at one point. But I ended up with this ensemble cast."
