About Heeramandi

The 8-episode series charts the lives of courtesans who live in Heeramandi, led by a cunning and ruthless Mallikajaan, played by Manisha. But soon, her niece Fareedan, Sonakshi, returns to Heeramandi, threatening to unveil dark secrets from her past and challenging her power. The series also shows how the stirrings of Indians against the British Raj, with the fight for freedom being the core theme.

The review by Hindustan Times reads, “If you’re expecting an Aishwarya Rai dashing across with fire on her pallu, or Madhuri Dixit satiating your eyes with a filmy mujra, or Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone passionately making love, Heeramandi is not your Vitamin Bhansali. As ironic as it sounds, each and every mujra insists that the tawaif (courtesan) is dancing only for herself, not for the nawabs, and certainly not for the audience.”
