Rumours about the cast of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Heeramandi’ on Netflix seems to be making headlines, with latest buzz suggesting that veteran actress Rekha has been replaced in the series with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Bhansali’s enthusiasm to sign Rekha was considerably dampened by her treatment of director Abhishek Kapoor during the making of Fitoor when Rekha had to be dropped overnight and replaced by Tabu.
