Heeramandi is set in pre-independent India and tells the story of courtesans in the hidden cultural reality of Heeramandi, a dazzling district. The series explores the themes of love, betrayal, succession, and politics in the kothas. Bhansali has described Heeramandi as his toughest project yet, likening it to making eight different films.
