Sanjay Leela Bhansali created magic with the biggest project, Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. The stellar performance of the star cast left everyone mesmerised. However, Heeramandi also received a lot of flak for several reasons, first with its inaccuracy with history, second with the glorification of tawaifs' lives, and last but not the least with SLB casting his niece, Sharmin Segal, in the series who failed to impress the audience. Although, SLB and Sharmin paid no attention to the trolls, in a recent interview, the director shared a reason that left the actors upset with him. Now, netizens have reacted to the same by bringing up Sharmin's reference.
