Sonakshi Sinha Locked In For Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heera Mandi
It is final. The casting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  Pakeezah-styled magnum  opus Heera Mandi is on. And  we hear two actresses  have been  locked in. While  Huma Qureshi  was  the first to be  finalized to play one of the sex workers, Sonakshi Sinha is  the  next actress to hop on board  the Heera Mandi express.

A source close to the development spills the beans. “More than Sonakshi herself it’s her father who has been  most keen that she work with Bhansali. Sonakshi did  a  Bhansali production earlier Rowdy Rathod. She will now be playing one  of the protagonist in Heera Mandi.”

 Apparently Ms Sinha  will be taking Kathak lessons to perform the Mujras in Heera Mandi which(the Mujras) would be neither  like those  in Pakeezah  nor Umrao Jaan. Also read: Sanjay Leela Bhansali Reunites With His Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Composer Ismail Darbar For Heera Mandi

“SLB wants the  songs  music  and dances in Heera Mandi to  be unique. While  it is true that he is  inspired by Pakeezaah he wants Heera Mandi to have a completely  different look, never seen before in any  cinema on the kotha  culture.”
