Influencers As Sanjay Leela Bhansali Characters As Heeramandi Releases

Published

on

ishita sari - the reel stars

Lights Camera Action! Heeramandi just released!

But wait, let’s rephrase that: Opulence, Grandeur and Magnificence.

These words are more aptly suited for the MAN & his filmography.

The most awaited 8-part Netflix series Heeramandi by none other than the master of cinematic brilliance Sanjay Leela Bhansali is finally here & we are sure it is going to be a visual treat for everyone.

If there is someone who gets Indian aesthetics spot on, it has to be him, hands down, no questions asked, you can go argue with the wall.

Film after film Bhansali gave us audiences characters that are not only remembered for their acting but also for their nuanced style. Each one is carefully carved with a fashion aesthetic that has inspired a whole generation & will continue to inspire the future ones.

We cannot stop thinking of how some of our favourite ReelStars have given us Bhansalisthetic (it is high time someone comes up with a word for his Cinematic Aesthetic). 

Here are some of the looks that we think can call a fresh take on those ICONIC characters’ styles from the movies. 

Komal Pandey as Nandini

Nandini from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam is a playful young girl. She is also a singer & an amazing dancer.

We sense, all of these traits, whenever we watch Komal Pandey giving us “How-To” styling lessons via her content.

However, the production value is as good as any worthy musical. (Even better we would say)

If these pictures don’t remind you of Aishwarya as Nandini, then you need to go back & watch the movie. (It’s absolutely worth it!)

Sukhmani Gambhir As Leela

Leela from Ram Leela is vivacious & a rebel at heart. 

She appears on the screen during the Holi sequence & everything comes to a standstill.

These looks on Sukhmani are a guidebook on how you can get the Leela vibe spot on.

Natasha Luthara As Padmavati

Padmavati – The QUEEN. Period.

When she is not making decisions on how to win in any situation, this is what she may look like casually chilling on the terrace of her palace.

Natasha is a vision in this outfit. It’s giving royalty & old-world charm gracefully combined.

Sukhnett Wadhwa As Mastani

Mastani was described as Nabhatuni aali apsara (meaning An Angel has descended from the heavens) 

We can’t think of anyone else but Sukhnett in this white & gold embellished outfit that is more relatable to this line.

She looks regal in this minimal yet complete look ready to break into a performance.

Ishita Mangal As Gangubai

Gangubai grew up to strong & Fierce yet carried herself with unmatch grace & attitude.

Dressed in white Gangu called herself Chand (moon) & this look on Ishita gets close to a modern take on Gangu’s style. The white sari & the half-moon detailing, this can easily qualify as the Gangu Look.

Heeramandi (The Diamond Bazaar) just released & the pre-release glimpses were enough to get fans excited. Moreover, this show will be the best weekend treat to binge-watch.

We are sure it will give many more iconic characters, and awe-inspiring looks. And to set trends that will last a long, long time. Besides, maybe someone will soon come up with a more suitable word for the Bhansali Aesthetic, till then we will stick with Bhansalisthetic.
