Sanjay Leela Bhansali Announces ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’ Season 2

Amid the success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s series Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, an exciting development has emerged. The show has been renewed for a second season. The new season will continue exploring the lives of courtesans, now focusing on the impact of the partition on Lahore and its tawaifs, and their migration to the Indian film industry. It remains unknown if any actresses from the first season will return.

In an interview with Variety Magazine, Sanjay Leela Bhansali discussed his experience shooting the magnum opus and the challenges faced, including time constraints. Despite these hurdles, he confirmed plans for a second season, backed by Netflix. Bhansali elaborated on Season 2, stating, “In Heeramandi 2, the women come from Lahore to the film world. They leave Lahore after the partition and settle in the Mumbai or Kolkata film industry. They still have to dance and sing, but this time for producers, not nawabs.”

On June 3, the makers officially announced the second season with a dazzling flash mob of 100 dancers at Carter Road, Mumbai. Dressed in sparkling anarkalis and ghungroos, the dancers performed to a medley of songs from the series, delivering the exciting news about Season 2 and leaving everyone in awe.

Expressing his gratitude, Bhansali said, “I’m blessed by the love and appreciation for Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. It’s been a joy to see the show resonate with audiences worldwide, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Netflix. I’m happy to announce that we’ll be back with Season 2!”

Monika Shergill of Netflix India shared her excitement, stating, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali has intricately woven magic to bring Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar to life. Watching audiences fall in love with this series has been hugely energizing, and it thrills me to share that we will be back with Season 2.”

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar featured an ensemble cast including Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sanjeeda Sheikh, and Sharmin Segal, with Shekhar Suman and Taha Shah Badussha in pivotal roles. The show revolved around love, power, and betrayal set against the backdrop of pre-Independence India.
