Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to step into the web zone now. It was recently revealed that the filmmaker is making a series titled Heera Mandi for Netflix. While the female casting coup also made a huge buzz, the latest gossip has a male lead to add to the cast. There are reports that the filmmaker might join hands with Kartik Aaryan.
Heera Mandi is said to be a heroine centric film, that revolves around the life of courtesans and prostitutes during the Indo-Pak partition, and also has many prominent male lead roles.the filmmaker has already started his discussion with a few actors. The source reveals, “Kartik Aaryan and Bhansali have always discussed in teaming up for a film together. They have met a couple of times in the past as well but nothing worked out. Recently, he was spotted at the maverick filmmaker’s office and apparently, SLB asked him if he would like to do a role in Heera Mandi.”
As per reports Kartik was also offered a role in Gangubai Kathiawadi which he rejected. Now it needs to be seen if he signs this one. But even if he does, it’s majorly a female dominated script but Kartik has a very edgy role to portray. But if Kartik agrees, this might be his second project on the digital platform after Ram Madhvani’s Dhamaka which might have a direct to OTT release.
