Baaghi TV: Recently, Pakistani actor Mansha Pasha commented on Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new film Heera Mandi (a film based on the past situation in Lahore, the capital of Punjab province of Pakistan).
According to media reports, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is set to make a film on the prostitution business in Lahore’s Heera Mandi, which will be made on a huge budget and will have a great cast.
Mansha Pasha wrote in a series of tweets on social networking site Twitter that Indians are making films on Lahore’s past glories, the ‘Heera Mandi’ simply because the country we live in bans real content, even if it is fictional.
…taking up the stories that are native to our country, brand them and sell them to the rest of the world. In the end what will be left will be our stories told from someone elses mouth.

The actress wrote that, by banning fictional content, we continue to discuss what moral imagery should and should not be shown. She wrote in another tweet that because of such weaknesses, other people make money through films based on real stories about our country and our society, selling them all over the world.
“In the end, we will hear our own stories from others,” she complained. At the end of the tweet, she also expressed regret over the process.
Although Mansha Pasha tweeted without tagging any company or filmmaker, there is no doubt that she was referring to the recent news about Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who was reported to be working on a film on Lahore’s Heera Mandi.
Recently, it was reported that Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be producing a film based on Lahore’s Heera Mandi, for which he has also cast Alia Bhatt. While talks to cast Aishwarya Rai, Vidya Ballan, Madhuri Dixit and Deepika Padukone are reportedly underway.
Although reports did not say when Sanjay Leela Bhansali would start work on the film. However, it is expected that work on the film, which will be made on Heera Mandi, will start by the end of this year.
