Fans couldn’t contain their excitement when Sanjay Leela Bhansali released the “Heeramandi” teaser on Thursday. The comedian has been in the news since “Gangubai Kathiawadi,” starring Alia Bhatt, became popular. A myth regarding Sanjay Leela Bhansali was recently dispelled by veteran actor Seema Pahwa. Pahwa revealed in an interview with Rajshri Unplugged that, despite what many people think, she never saw Bhansali reprimand anyone on the set.
Seema Pahwa said that she was “scared” to take up “Gangubai Kathiawadi”
In the interview, Seema revealed, “One was that I had never worked with Sanjay. I was unaware of his working style. I had no idea he made the actors feel so at ease. The second challenge was to see if I would be accepted by the audience. I wasn’t sure if the audience would embrace me because they had only recently seen me perform comedic roles.” In the movie, Seema portrayed Sheela Mausi, a brothel owner. The actor added that she was taken aback by Bhansali’s consideration of her for the part and that she had lots of space to play around in the movie. In the same conversation, she stated, “There was no interference from his end.” The actor also mentioned that although she had never witnessed it, she had heard stories of him berating the employees.
Talking more about Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Sanjay is a perfectionist. If you don’t give him the level of perfection he demands, he will become enraged and scream, which I’ve heard happening on his set. Fortunately for me, though, this never occurred in front of me. He’s never shown signs of anger to me on set. Although I spent many days filming with him, I never witnessed him yelling on the set, but I had heard tales of him doing so,” she remarked.
“Ranbir Kapoor, who earlier worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali on his first film “Saawariya,” talked about the filmmaker’s unpredictable personality. “Mr. (Sanjay Leela) Bhansali used to truly treat me as an assistant director when I helped him with “Black.” He used to hit and mistreat us, and I would spend hours on my knees. that merely fortifies you and gets you ready for the real world,” he remarked.
