It features an all star cast including Manisha Koirala's , Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha Aditi Rao Hydari , Sanjeeda Shaikh and Sharmin Segal. Arch nemeses Mallikajaan and Fareedan are locked in a battle for succession of Heeramandi, where courtesans reign as queens.

The only hope is young Alam, Mallikajaan’s youngest daughter.

Prerna Singh, CEO at Bhansali Productions, said, “As makers, the aspect of storytelling which we enjoy the most is being able to portray characters that are profound and flawed in their own way, and have viewers empathize with them regardless.

"Very soon, the doors to Heeramandi will open to one and all and you will get to see the magic that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has created with Heeramandi.”
