Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back again and this time he is all set to bang with an extremely different topic film. The name of his new film is Heera Mandi and the backdrop of the movie will be red light area in Lahore, Pakistan.
Sanjay reportedly was searching for the female lead role of the movie and was not finding one. As a result the project did not take off. Finally we have learnt that Rani Mukherji will be playing the role of main heroine of the film. It is understood that Sanjay has a complete faith in the ability of Rani and having a star as well as talented actress of Rani’s caliber in his film is indeed a positive thing for Bhansali camp. Both have worked together in film ‘Black’ in 2005 which also had Amitabh Bachchan with Rani. The film was critically acclaimed and had once again proved the metal of Sanjay as a director and Rani as an artist. In 2007 they teamed up again to make film ‘Saawariya’ which was a debut movie of Ranbir Kapoor.
The director was recently quoted saying that he is busy with Ram Leela, starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, and four other productions. He confirmed that once the work of Ram Leela is finished, he will focus on Heera mandi. If things go fine and everything happens as planned Rani will surely be seen in the film. Rani and Bhansali have worked together in the 2005 film, Black, and the 2007 film,
