Shillong, June 3: The multi-starrer period drama streaming series ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’ is set to return with a second season.

The first season of the series received an immense positive response for its visuals, storytelling, and music.


Bhansali expressed his gratitude for the success of ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’, saying, “I’m blessed by the love and appreciation for ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’. It’s been a joy to see the show resonate with audiences worldwide, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Netflix. I’m happy to announce that we’ll be back with season 2.”


As per ‘Variety’, this time around, the women of Heeramandi will head to India after the partition and look to settle in the Hindi or Bengali film industry.


At Carter Road in Mumbai, a flash mob of 100 dancers adorned in anarkalis (a traditional Indian gown) and anklets danced to a medley of songs from the series. As the audience joined in singing along, the dancers delivered the news about season 2.
