“Can’t get enough of Heeramandi?” Neither can Netflix India, according to their newest post on Instagram. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, which clocked 8.5 million views in 12 days, has officially been renewed for a second season. Starring Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Sharmin Segal Mehta and Taha Shah Badussha, the series has been a topic of conversation since its release on May 1. It follows the lives of a group of courtesans against the backdrop of the Independence Movement. 

“In Heeramandi 2, the women now come from Lahore to the film world. They leave Lahore after the partition and most of them settle in the Mumbai film industry or Kolkata film industry. So that journey in the bazaar remains the same. They still have to dance and sing, but this time for the producers and not for the nawabs. So that’s the second season we are planning, let’s see where it goes,” said Bhansali to Variety

The second season was announced by a flash mob event at Mumbai’s Carter Road, where 100 dancers decked out in gorgeous traditional attire performed to a medley of popular songs from Heeramandi. The clip ended with an aerial view of the troupe forming the shape ‘S2’, confirming that there will be more to the Heeramandi universe.

According to Monika Shergill, VP, Content, Netflix India, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali has intricately woven magic to bring ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’ to life. Watching audiences everywhere fall in love with this series — making it truly their own as a cultural phenomenon — has been hugely energizing and it thrills me to share that we will be back with Season 2.”
