Manisha Koirala Opens up About her Bold Scene in ‘Heeramandi’

Manisha Koirala has received rave reviews for her work in ‘Heeramandi’, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s maiden web series. The show features an intimate scene between her and Shekhar Suman. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Manisha was asked whether she was aware of the sequence before the shoot. She said that SLB tries to add a new dimension to whatever he shoots.

“See, every little thing Sanjay [Leela Bhansali] does, he tries to bring in a new element that we hadn’t thought of, and he does it. So even about this scene, when rehearsals were going on, it must have been new,” she said.

This is Manisha’s first release of the year. She was last seen in ‘Shehzada’, which tanked at the box office.
