Sanjay Leela Bhansali Reacts: No Lajja, No Rekha, No Madhuri In Heeramandi
The internet has virtually exploded with speculative deskjobs about the casting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ornate and lavish Heeramandi.

Everyday the nation and its favourite gossip columnist wakes up to a new (imaginary) addition to the Heeramandi cast. The latest wand-waving brainwave has a portal letting the world know that the two semi-retired screen divas Rekha and Madhuri Dixit are being cast together in Heermandi for the first time since Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Lajja.

Firstly, just to get the facts right, Rekha and Dixit were not cast together in Lajja. Yes, they featured in the film but were cast in two different sections of Lajja  and had no scenes together.

Secondly, to set the record straight, neither Rekha nor Dixit has been approached for Heeramandi.

Reacting angrily to what he describes as “fantasy casting” Sanjay Bhansali says, “Just because we are not refuting any of the speculative reports on the casting,the portals are going berserk doing their own casting for my film. Every day I wake up to hear who is in Heeramandi.”
