In an interview with Variety Magazine, Sanjay Leela Bhansali shared his experience of shooting the magnum opus and also discussed about the challenges like lack of time etc. However, despite the immense amount of time the web-series will be taking, the filmmaker assured fans that he is indeed planning on a second season, and he was backed by the streaming platform Netflix. He explained the details of season 2 of Heeramandi, wherein he said, “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.”

On June 3, the makers took to social media to officially announce the second season. A video was shot at Carter Road, Mumbai, where a dazzling flash mob of 100 dancers adorned in sparkling anarkalis (a traditional Indian gown) and ghungroos (anklets) danced to a medley of songs from the series. As the audience joined in singing along, the dancers delivered the exciting news about Season 2, leaving everyone in awe.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali expresses 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!”

Further, sharing their happiness about the new season of the period drama, Monika Shergill of Netflix India also added, “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.”

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar featured an ensemble cast of Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sanjeeda Sheikh, and Sharmin Segal as the leading ladies along with Shekhar Suman and Taha Shah Badussha in pivotal roles. The show revolved around love, power, and betrayal set against the backdrop of pre-Independence India.
