Manisha Koirala and Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s collaboration dates back to the film “1942: A Love Story,” before Bhansali’s directorial debut. They reunited for “Khamoshi: The Musical,” and now, after 28 years, they’re working together on the streaming series “Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar.”

Reflecting on Bhansali’s evolution, Manisha noted his enduring simplicity despite his success. She praised his commitment to excellence and his love for cinema, despite his grand productions.

Addressing rumors of Bhansali’s temper, Manisha emphasized the human aspect of emotions, defending his right to mood swings as long as they don’t harm others.

While “Heeramandi” receives praise for certain aspects, it also faces criticism for its portrayal of sensitive themes such as non-consensual sex and the aestheticization of women’s suffering. However, some reviewers, like Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express, appreciate the show’s portrayal of the characters’ complexities and the nuanced depiction of their struggles.
