Maestro Indian director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back with a grand visual magnum opus, set to enthrall audiences worldwide. Netflix unveiled the trailer of this year’s most anticipated series from India — Bhansali’s Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar premiering globally on May 1st, only on Netflix.

The thrilling trailer transports viewers to the sizzling district of Heeramandi, where Mallikajaan (Manisha Koirala) rules over an elite house of courtesans. She schemes, fearing no one — until the return of her late nemesis’ daughter, Fareedan (Sonakshi Sinha), brings tensions in the house to a boil. Outside, the city is also roiling, with revolutionaries demanding India’s freedom from British rule, with Bibbojaan (Aditi Rao Hydari), one of Mallikajaan’s daughters, joining the fight for freedom. Meanwhile, Mallikajaan’s youngest, Alamzeb (Sharmin Segal), dreams of love with the son of a nawab (nobleman), Tajdar (Taha Shah Badussha), and yearns to break out of Heeramandi.

Everything about Heeramandi has the trademark, grand-canvas Bhansali stamp, from the stunning costumes to the lavish production design and flawless hair and make-up - creating the unmistakable period during the 'British Raj' in India.

Amsterdam News Curtain Raiser is tracking Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, so watch this space for updates on the series.
