Sonakshi Sinha Reacts To Buzz Of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Aggressive Outbursts On 'Heeramandi's Sets

Sonakshi Sinha is enjoying incomparable stardom off lately, after delivering an enthralling performance as the ‘Fareedan’ in the series, Heeramandi. The project, which is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s debut in the sphere of OTT shows, has gathered humongous responses worldwide, and there has been a fair share of criticism as well. However, it must be noted that Sanjay’s charm in creating a magnificent world with his grand sets and opulent props, has been an eye-catching phenomenon nonetheless.

Sonakshi Sinha reacts to rumours about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s aggressive behaviour on sets

In a recent interaction with India Today, Sonakshi Sinha opened up about the kind of filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is, as he worked on his dream project of Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. The diva dismissed pre-circulated rumours about SLB being aggressive on the sets, and throwing things and phones all around the place in a fit of anger. Sonakshi, on the contrary, remarked that Sanjay was a completely nurturing personality. However, he was a strict taskmaster at times, who ensures seamless work on such a mega scale project like this. In her words:

“Absolute rumours! But yes, he is a taskmaster, I won’t deny that. But, he deserves every bit of it because see the kind of work and magic that he creates, right? And if somebody does mess with his vision, I think it’s his right to make sure the work gets done.”

Sonakshi talks about her experience of working with an eminent filmmaker like Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Moving forth in the conversation, Sonakshi then opened up about her experience on working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, which is no less than a dream come true for many actresses during their careers. The diva remarked how the filmmaker has a true-eye for talent and appreciates the same no matter what. She further expressed:

“I really enjoyed working with him, and he’s someone who really appreciates talent, so he was very happy with me. I also did hear these rumours before I went to work with him, but I was very, very happy to work with him on set. He can be really nurturing when he sees that an actor is delivering exactly what his vision is, so, I’m blessed that I got to see that side of his.”


Sonakshi commented on chances of female rivalry in the sets of Heeramandi

For the unversed, Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar features a stellar star cast, of whom a majority is some of the most superhit actresses. Divas like Manisha Koirala, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjeeda Sheikh and Sharmin Sehgal had been roped in to enact the roles of courtesans in the series. In a previous interaction with a leading daily, Sonakshi was asked whether there was any female rivalry between the actresses who worked in the series. In her response, Sonakshi sassily responded:

“You know, women don't do that, right? And whoever probably started this rumour is a very disgruntled man. 'Heeramandi' was an amazing experience for all of us. I mean, it has been one of the best working experiences of my life. I mean, try and get a six-hero film together, and I challenge you!”
